Fantastic Villa with large private garden and panoramic terrace on the first floor. The beach and the sea are just opposite. Perfect for any type of move.
Villa recently restored, spirited style and cozy inside, with a touch of typical Sicilian in the garden and in the House of wood outside. Rooms of large proportions, bright, with high ceilings. The ground floor consists of two access doors to the villa and two leading to the garden, 3 bedrooms, living room and bathroom with shower.

Etna is just behind you; from the garden or from the panoramic terrace you can admire its beauty and if you are lucky, even some lava. The shingle beach is just in front of the villa, with direct access to a few metres.

Check-in e Check-out da concordare prima dell'arrivo. Teniamo molto alla pulizia degli ambienti della villa e pretendiamo il rispetto del verde all'esterno in giardino.
I found the place very expensive for what it is. The house is not pretty. If you are looking for a charming italian house this is not the place. On the positive side it was clean. Giovanni was friendly but we had to wait for a while despite having called to say our arrival time. Wifi didn't work very well either.
I'm sorry you are not fully satisfied. We do our best to make you feel at home, as always. I've been as flexible as possible for your check-in even if you changed two times the time of arrival (from late evening to 10.30pm). From your call it took about 5 min to reach the Villa. Anyway I'm sincerely sorry for my delay.
Villa Luna Rossa is a typical Mediterranean house as you can see in the pictures, and just in front of a pebble beach: that's why in the past seasons we have welcomed so many guests that always appreciated the Villa, our spacious Garden with the second kitchen, the functionality of the rooms and the Comfort to be just in front of the Sea, with the Etna backward. I'm sure that if you would have spent more days here, you would have loved the space and the position.
About the price, the rate was calculated with the Cleanings included. Choosing a very short stay in a private Villa is not convenient. In fact even if you stayed only One Night, cost of check-in is always the same for us: it consisted on the cleanings of 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchen , all the outdoor spaces + cost of the laundry for Towels kit (for each one of you).
In any case I would be really happy to have you as guests again maybe for a longer period as I told you in private here.
Wish you the best.
Giovanni Emmanuele est un hôte très agréable, accueillant et arrangeant.
Nous avons loué une villa, pour 12 personnes, qui hélas n'était pas disponible aux dates que nous souhaitions. Il nous a, tout de suite, trouvé une solution alternative avec une villa encore plus belle.
La villa était identique aux photos voire mieux!
Notre hôte à était disponible tout le long du séjour pour nous proposer des activités.
Bref, si vous hésitez encore sachez que nous avons passé un séjour parfait en Sicile et que Giovanni Emmanuele a participé grandement à cela.
It was so great !!
Giovanni Emmanuele is very nice, welcoming and accommodating.
Thanks again !
We had an amazing week in Villa Luna Rossa with my friends !!! Giovanni was very welcoming and available. Really nice host !
We rent the ground floor of the house, with all the bedrooms. We were seven and were really comfortable. There is only one bathroom but there's also a shower outside which is really useful.
The BEAUTIFUL garden was our living room !! Very charming place with hammock, deck-chairs, swing, palm trees and a big convivial table ! Real place for vacation !
The House is well located at 100m from the beach. We had access to deck-chairs and parasols on the Luna Rossa private beach. In the garden
we had view on the Etna and could see its eruptions by night... :) (but it's safe !!).
We recommend !!
Thanks again Giovanni :-)
Giovanni was a fantastic host, he looked after everything for us and made sure we had everything we needed. From advice on what is available in the local area to organising taxis for us. The villa is a beautiful home with excellent facilities, we each had our own room which was tastefully decorated and incredibly clean. There is a stunning garden with a kitchen area and BBQ with a large table that was excellent for communal eating. Part of the rental included sun beds on the pebble beach directly opposite the villa. The beach is well served by an excellent cafe serving food and drink until the evening with lovely hospitable staff. We wanted a relaxing break and travelled by taxi to Taormina for the day, Giovanni organised the transport for us and it was well worth the cost. We did walk to a local restaurant on one night but I would recommend a car if you are wanting lots of choice of where to eat. would highly recommend this property.
Giovanni was a tremendous host in nearly every way. Given the size of the group I was traveling with, we had many moving parts and things to take care of. Giovanni was very helpful in finding us a means of getting from Catania to the villa, as well rides to and from Milazzo so we could visit the Aeolian Islands. Additionally, he was always willing to provide invaluable input regarding the area when we needed it.
As far as the villa itself, the building is very well kept and modern. The private garden is tremendous, and comes with a grill, table, hammock, and lemon trees. It is an ideal setting for big meals and gatherings. The porch of the villa provide a beautiful view of both Mt Etna, as well as the beach. Overall, the villa is a great place and well worth the money.
In regards to the town, we struggled to find much going on, however, we arrived on Easter break, which would largely explain its lack of activity. Of course, on our last day, there were many people streaming to the beach, so it's tough to gauge the real action of the town. Regardless, it was pleasant and we had a great time overall.
I would recommend, however, that any international person who wants to visit should get an international drivers license before coming, so they can rent a car and explore Sicily more thoroughly.

Hi there :) I'm Giovanni Emmanuele from Sicily,I'm a student of Economy at the University of Catania and I'm really interested in Business Management and Tourism. I really love my "Island" and I think that you, reader, will love it too :). Weather here is fantastic, not too cold in winter neither too hot in summer (just perfect). We have the beach 10 minutes faraway (from were I live) and the Mt.Etna (were you can ski in winter) 30 minutes away by car.I love travel and I've been traveling "enough" to understand how things works abroad. I also love to learn new things and I'm curious of everything around me. this is why I'm trying to run my own business here in Sicily, land of the sun, beaches and mountain, and also work with tourism. I will do everything is possible to make your stay here in Sicily, unique and adorable and hope to see here in my houses.
