My family and I recently returned from a two week trip to Sicily and Italy, which included a four night stay at Villa Chiarenza. Looking back, our stay at the Villa was clearly the highlight of the trip. As others have said, it is tucked into a nondescript area just off the autostrada. However, once you enter the property, you... More

Siamo stati in questa fantastica struttura per 2 notti. È un posto meraviglioso dal giardino alla terrazza alla casa che sembra un piccolo museo con la sua collezione di opere d'arte da tutto il mondo! Abbiamo apprezzato anche la minuziosa pulizia delle camere e la gentilezza della signora Agata. La colazione è buonissimo è tutto homemade. Grazie mille, a presto!... More

The villa's location just off the motorway up through a small estate may look a ilttle disappointing but once inside the character of the property oozes charm and old style elegance. the villa is full of antiques and curios and the garden has views of Etna and plenty of seating. the rooms are large with modern ensuite and the beds...

Great stay for a family or a couple very calm and relaxing Breakfast was very special with lots of attention to details we ended up lingering every morning and enjoying the garden before setting out to nearby "La bellissima Taormina"

House is beautiful; feels like a museum but relaxed and comfortable as well. Spotlessly clean.Spacious. Lovely large grounds. Views of Mt Etna. Parking on premesis. Near the lovely beach town of Giardini Naxos. Ten minute drive to central... More

One of our favorite stays in Italy EVER!!!!! We stayed 6 nights and did not want to leave. We were welcomed by Agatha and given some great info on the area and a wonderful tour of the 230 year old villa. We saw three of the rooms and they were all roomy with great private baths. Our room had a... More

Fantastic b&b. The hosts are very welcoming and ensure that you have a wonderful stay. The rooms are spotless, very comfortable and authentic to the period of the building. Breakfast is incredible and whilst located near the autostrada it's quite quiet. Would definitely stay here again

Salvatore e Agatha are so kind that you don't feel like going back home anymore. They run "their home" with so much passion that you really feel like that's your own house. The breakfast is splendid, served in the garden with a magnificent view of mount Etna. They also give nice tips to visit Taormina without going throught some issues... More

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

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
