Villa Catarina is based in Messina’s agricultural centre of Pettineo, which is perfectly placed to visit the East and West parts of Sicily. Over the centuries the town has been ruled by several feudatories and members of the aristocratic class such as Ventimiglia I in the 13th Century, and Valguarnera I in the 15th Century.
The nearest beach of Castel di Tusa is just 6.5km from the villa – just 10 min by car. The property is structured on two floors with access from a spacious and bright living room with swimming pool view. This room is characterised by the fireplace and sofas where you can rest in total comfort. From here, through an internal staircase, you can reach the first floor.
The charming furnishings of the villa are reminiscent of bygone times – most of them are, in fact, antiques! As you move through the rooms, it is evident that the owner of the property takes precious care of the villa, and has good taste with attention being paid to the smallest details. The villa has four bedrooms – two double bedrooms with en-suite shower on the first floor, and one twin and one double on the ground floor with a bathroom with tub. On the ground floor, you will find the spacious, bright and well-equipped kitchen. The house is surrounded by a porch and large external spaces, and is also nearby to a large piece of land cultivated with olive trees and fruit trees – such as lemon and orange trees. The products of the land can be picked and eaten by the guests. In front of the house, you will find the swimming pool with solarium and a covered gazebo.
This space is equipped with external furniture to make the stay more comfortable, and near the swimming pool there is an external bathroom with shower and a fully-equipped kitchen with wood stove and barbecue. The owner will be more than happy to offer his guests a buffet with characterisitc Sicilian products to welcome them to the villa.
