    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Located halfway between Catania and Taormina,near the village of Santa Venerina, this secluded rural retreat is immersed in an evergreen 4,5 acre lemon grove on its own hilltop overlooking the Ionian sea and Europe's biggest volcano with 360-degree stunning views. Completed in 2011, Villa la Quercia is an ideal base for relaxing in the privacy of a large infinity pool surrounded by lawns and terraced lemon groves, yet being close to all the sights and amenities of eastern Sicily and to the beach. A large, shady terrace and pleasant afternoon breezes invite al fresco living, while a hammock strung between lemon trees and swaying olive trees provide the ideal backdrop for restorative snoozes, lounging by the pool and long moonlit dinners accompanied by the sounds of the countryside.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The villa is a short drive from the village of Santa Venerina which has a few shops, a supermarket and...

As soon as we walked into the main living space we knew we were going to have a magical holiday. Local prosecco and homemade marmelades and biscuits had... more
