Villa Casale della Quercia is situated in Santa Maria la Stella (Acireale), a small village on the slopes of Mount Etna, Europe's highest and most active volcano, recently added to UNESCO's World Heritage list. The Villa recreates a perfect and peaceful Oasi with its Private saltwater Swimming-Pool of 18x5mt, surrounded by a charming garden and paved terraces, with a superb outlook over the surrounding countryside and the Mount Etna and far away from hustle in the city. It incorporates a rare and privileged position, great views and beautiful interiors.
The Villa was built at the beginning of the 19th Century and has been recently restored keeping its unique Sicilian style: singular smooth lava stone features and only local material such as "Terracotta". It is surrounded by a private garden of 4000 square meters planted with Mediterranean trees and bushes like citrus, olives and palms trees.
Inside, the villa is bright and spacious, with an accurate and well studied mix of modern design and antique furnishing.
The ground floor comprises a spacious open plan living room with fireplace, created in the most typical room of the villa with its three lava tanks where wine was produced; a modern fully-equipped kitchen and a comfortable complete bathroom. This floor is surrounded by a system of wide terraces furnished with sofas, tables and a water well, overlooking the garden and the landscape.
The first floor can be accessed even by an external staircase which lead to an intimate balcony which has the highest view of the house to the seacoast. This floor consists of a luxurious master bedroom with en-suite bathroom (with hydromassage and shower) and an anteroom with the access to the two double bedrooms and a complete bathroom.
The garden is beautifully kept and verdant, with shaded areas, including a porch with a barbecue area and a Tavern composed by kitchen with wood oven, fireplace, wine cellar and a WC.
The house also includes a laundry room and a bathroom near the pool.

What our guests say about us:
Joel - Regno Unito
A great villa, in a private location with a wonderful pool area. A super location for relaxing by the pool, but also for exploring the local sites of Etna, Taormina and Syracuse.
The general service, communications and advice from Giovanni and Chiara were first class and really allowed us to have a wonderful holiday. Many thanks for your hospitality and assistance.
This villa is perfect for a family or up to 3 couples traveling together. The house has all of the charm that you could hope for in an older villa, but all of the facilities (bathrooms, electricity, plumbing, wifi, furniture, etc.) are modern and of the best quality. The separate "pizzeria" kitchen and dining room are fabulous for entertaining. We hosted a dinner for 10 people but could have easily had twice that many. The grounds, terraces and swimming pool are scrupulously maintained and make for truly enjoyable outdoor living. The property manager, Giovanni, is gracious and responsive -- very easy to work with. All in all, an outstanding vacation home; highly recommended.

Abbiamo scelto questa villa per le nostre vacanze. Per una famiglia di 6 persone come la nostra (noi 5, più mia cognata) è risultata perfetta. Bello l'arredamento (curato, in stile Siciliano, elegante) e ovviamente il giardino. La piscina è splendida, oltre le aspettative. La spiaggia è vicina ma soprattutto la zona è piena di ristorantini di pesce. Forse un po' troppa confusione ma immagino in estate sia sempre così.
C'è molto spazio esterno; i bambini si sono goduti il giardino e noi ogni angolo, e volevamo questo. C'è anche una tavernetta in pietra lavica (non avevo mai visto un utilizzo simile) con un forno per le pizze e la cucina esterna, e un pergolato che dà sul giardino. Bellissimo! Non abbiamo usato il forno ma sarebbe stato divertente. La Villa è fornita di tutto devo dire, non abbiamo avuto bisogno di procurarci nulla. Giovanni è stato un buon host, ci ha dato molte info sia sulla casa che sulla zona. Non avevamo programmato di visitare l'Etna (che dalla villa si vede per intero) ma ce l'ha caldamente suggerita. E infatti era da fare! Ci ha predisposto un'escursione con guida privata: il vulcano è spettacolare.
Sia all'arrivo che alla partenza Giovanni ci ha predisposto un van con autista, si è rivelata una soluzione pratica.
Ho chiesto il servizio di pulizie infra settimanali, ci siamo fermati 12 giorni e la casa è davvero grande, è imprescindibile.
Unica pecca: abbiamo avuto difficoltà con le luci esterne ma giovanni ci ha risposto prontamente, quindi nessun problema.

A villa fit for royalty!
We were a family of 6 and had a wonderful holiday here. Our host Giovanni was exceptional. He made check in so easy and even waited for us when our flight was delayed for several hours. Giovanni also provided ideal spots, areas and restaurants to visit and explore and experience the real Sicily.
The villa itself is magnificent and the location is breath taking. Every thought has gone into providing a stress free time for visitors with the sole aim of relaxing and enjoying the area....ranging from air conditioning, wifi, beach towels, washing machine, outdoor entertaining area and a beautiful landscaped garden with pool. The bedrooms are spacious and tastefully decorated and the rustic look of the kitchen was delightful.
I would not hesitate to stay here again and would highly recommend a visit to this unique villa.
