We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed a unique Sicilian experience. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. They treated us warmly as if we belonged to their family. The villa is beautifully designed with very nice gardens and view to Mount Etna. It was like going back in time, staying in a beautiful villa 200 years ago. The distance... More

During our stay, we experienced all of the positive things so accurately described in the other reviews - the friendly and warm hospitality of Agata and Salvatore, the wonderful outdoor area and the excellent breakfast to name but a few. Agata told me that the house has been in their family for the last 220 years, prior to which it... More

Throughout our honeymoon in Sicily we had been to many hotels and BB. This one was an experience that we didn't have anywhere else. First off it's a beautiful well kept Sicilian manor, in itself work exploring, and the owners, Agata and Salvatore, are the most gracious of hosts. They did everything they could do make us feel comfortable including... More

We spent 6 wonderfully relaxing days here and the location was great for exploring the area in our hire car but what made the holiday a real treat was the quality and atmosphere of Villa Chiarenza! This beautiful family home oozes charm with it's original works of art and antiques and the breakfasts soon became our favourite meal of the... More

This magnificient villa is a veritable museum with a wonderful garden with a stunning view of mount Etna, living rooms with all kinds of treasures (quality paintings, sculptures, tapestries and musical instruments) as well as spacious bedrooms with all the modern amenities for the guests. The hosts for the occasion were a most refined elderly couple who did everything to... More

Three of us stayed 2 nights enjoying a very comfortable upstairs room with a spacious balcony with panoramic views to Etna and surrounds. Our hosts were a lovely couple who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable (even ordered some pizzas for us to be delivered). The breakfast (fruit, cheeses, meats, pastries, fresh orange juice) in the... More

We truly enjoyed our stay in Villa Chiarenza which is just a 10-minute walk away from Giardini Naxos. The rooms are full of fine antiques and big - ours was in fact two rooms. The breakfast is delicious and - weather permitting - will be served outside on the lovely garden terrace. The hosts are a charming friendly couple.

Villa Chiarenza is a beautiful house which must have been in the middle of the countryside a long time ago. Unfortunately now it's in a nondescript area on a relatively noisy road... But this does not spoil the peaceful feeling of the walled garden and of the house full of antiques: the birds starting to sing at down were much... More

The house and garden is very nice, the breakfast and rooms were amazing! We really enjoyed our stay here but felt a little limited by the location. It was a 10-15 minute walk into Gardini Naxos and then a bus ride into Taormina

Sorry,but we did not get to be actual guests in the villa. The landlord ignored our booking,which was approved by his daughter (we had a voucher ),and when we arrived there, on a rainy evening,after a long and exhausting drive,we found out that all the rooms were taken. Much more,we were offended by the poor hotel where he put us... More

Dear Estdan, we are sorry for your experience but as explained at your arrival this reservation was never recorded in our system, this because the agency that perfomed reservation never sent the deposit to confirm reservation, so the reservation was finally not confirmed and recorded. Actually the voucher you had was never released by us, but by agency. Unfortunately when... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in a typical Sicilian Baroque style, this 18th-century villa has completely been restored, with the greatest care and attention being paid to the finest details. The villa has a spacious garden (2000 square metres), embellished with a large Caltagirone vase collection with several cacti-plants, which the hostess takes care of. There are corners in the shade of pines, eucalypti and citrus-groves in which you can enjoy a relaxing moment and dedicate yourself to reading your favourite books. Furnished with antiques, the villa, formerly the Domenicians' summer residence, is now an elegant and spacious place to spend a relaxing Mediterranean break. ... more   less
