Description from owner

Our holiday home is a spacious 2 bedroom house dating back to the 19th century. Our house is cozy and comfortable in any season. It is perfect if you want a place where you can relax and enjoy some silence, and you are not cut off from main roads if you also want to tour the island. We have a fantastic paved garden as large as the house and totally private, where you can spend an entire afternoon in the sun or reading while kids play in a safe environment. You do not need to take the car for shopping or dining out: from our house you walk to shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants that are open all the year round. You can also reach downtown Catania and the top of Mount Etna by public transportation. We are at Nicolosi, 15 miles of the coast line and the beaches, 10 miles north of central Catania, a 15 minutes drive of motorways and a 30 minutes drive of wonderful beaches.

The Sicily region

What can be said about Sicily that hasn't been already told? Sicily is not just your typical sun and sea holiday destination, built up from scratch by the tourism industry. We host at least one piece of heritage for any kind of civilization that has ever developed in western Europe: being here allows you to experience with your own eyes the entire history of the western world from its origins! Namely, ancient Greek and Roman heritage, medieval towers and castels, fine Baroque architecture are within one hour drive of this house in downtown Catania, Acireale, Taormina and all around Mount Etna. Ceramics factories, exhibitions and shops are at Caltagirone. Siracusa, Noto and the Roman "Villa del Casale" at Piazza Armerina can be reached in a hour and half drive, whereas Agrigento's "Valle dei Templi" and Baroque Ragusa Ibla, Scicli and Modica can be reached in two hours. Modica is also famous for a special way to make chocolate with no milk (Aztec style, introduced under Spanish rule). And then there is the wide variety of landscape Sicily displays, according to season, county and sometimes mood: bare and dry in the summer, green and moody in Spring and Autumn, vivid and clear in Winter.


You can enjoy a quiet and appeasing atmosphere in this village of 5000 dwellers in the wealthy outskirts Catania, which you definitely do not find downtown or along the coast. This village is a holiday place for us all the year round, not just in the Summer, but many Catanians have moved here to live and the village never shuts down: you never need to use a car to buy food or find a restaurant and you never feel that sort of sad "closed for season" atmosphere that you often find in coastal towns out of Summer. A very peculiar, hilly countryside surrounds villages all around this area on the volcano, with parks and picnic areas opened inside ancient craters. There are many scenic routes you can take all around Mount Etna or down to the coast, which is an average 20 km away. You can also walk and hike inside the Mount Etna Nature Reserve: the main excursion centre for Mount Etna is 17 km north of our house. If you want to see more of the island, motorways are 10 km away, allowing you to move fast. Even though fast is a word you should erase from your dictionary if you want to visit our beautiful island avoiding tourist traps: you will notice that there is nothing like Sicily for slow travellers!

Very Good

“Spacious accommodation, good location”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2012

Large sitting room, kitchen and private courtyard. All necessary fittings for self catering. Easy on street parking and close to local shops, butcher fishmonger etc. Recommended for family groups and those who want to self cater. Manager was very helpful. In the centre of Nicosia, so very close to Etna related activities, and also close to Catania and Siracusa. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Just to say that our house is at Nicolosi on Mount Etna close to Catania, and not at Nicosia, which is inland Sicily. Our guests have made a little confusion about the name of the place, but all the rest they say is absolutely true ;-)

“Great property, great location”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2011

I’ve rented a number of apartments and houses in various countries and I have to say that the Etna Townhouse has been the best of them all. The house is in a great location, in the heart of Nicolosi and close to various markets and a good selection of restaurants. Everything that we needed was within easy walking distance. The house itself is very well equipped. The kitchen is usable (not always the case in rented accommodation), the bedrooms are comfortable (the main bedroom has air conditioning), there are two bathrooms and there is a TV with satellite in the upstairs sitting room. Communicating with Luca was easy and the process of booking the house was painless. Luca was at the house when we arrived and was on hand if we needed assistance. One morning we had trouble with the water; I phoned Luca before we set out that day and by the time we arrived back to the house all was sorted. I can wholeheartedly recommend this house.
