Description:

PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only).

Villa Alba has warm, cosy rooms with fine furnishings and details, creating an almost surreal atmosphere, without renouncing any comforts. A special treat is the unique and romantic bedroom suite on the first floor, with a whirlpool tub in the room looking out over a breathtaking view. Outside is the well kept garden and panoramic swimming pool offering picture postcard views in each corner. The Villa is the ideal choice for families and groups of friends who wish to visit this splendid part of Sicily or to simply spend their days relaxing on the beach or in the pool, surrounded by this unique panorama.

From the entrance gate, the driveway runs alongside the garden with swimming pool up to the large panoramic veranda which leads into the main part of the house with the large living room with fireplace which communicates with service bathroom and the well-equipped kitchen with American fridge and wok for those wishing to prepare great international dishes. A staircase leads from the living room up to the first floor with the main bedroom suite with the whirlpool tub and bathroom with shower; the corridor leads to the twin bedroom, sharing a bathroom with the comunicating double room. On the second floor are 2 more double bedrooms, both with ensuite bathroomwith shower. The annex is located on the back of the house and consists of a double bedroom with bathroom with shower and kitchen.

There is also a portico, furnished with tables and sofas at the front of the house, with breathtaking views over the sea and Mount Etna. In a corner of the garden is a wood oven and barbecue where guests can prepare alfresco meals. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

We loved the outdoor pizza oven, outdoor grill, outdoor seating options and ping pong table. And of course, the view was spectacular. Also, the beds were really comfortable. Our family spent a memorable evening making homemade pizzas in that fabulous oven and enjoying them around the large farm style table. It's a vacation memory we will cherish. Thanks to the owner for sharing his special property with us!
