Casalnuovo is the sort of villa that makes you yearn for a reason to celebrate so that you can gather up a big group of friends and whisk them off for the holiday of a lifetime. Designed and cared for with an extraordinary attention to detail, the villa has everything, and so much more, that you could possibly want for a large group holiday.


500 metres above sea level and with an outlook for miles around, Casalnuovo provides extremely spacious living and sleeping accommodation over two floors. Set on a 15-acre organic estate, it has views that encompass the legendary Bay of Tindari, the Tyrrhenian Sea and, in the distance, the Aeolian Islands, all constant reminders of the proximity of this villa to so many of the fascinating places Sicily has to offer its visitors.

Outside: The focal point of the garden is a very large pool, surrounded by lawns dotted with plenty of sun loungers and mature olive trees, as well as a shady gazebo. There are poolside seating areas and a large al fresco dining area (comfortably seats 15 people), with barbecue and wood-burning pizza oven, accessible directly from the kitchen. A vegetable garden provides a regular supply of fresh salad and vegetables. There are also opportunities to play table tennis and other outdoor games in the garden, or you can just relax in the hammock!

Inside: The ground floor villa entrance leads directly into a huge living area that, thanks to its floor-to-ceiling French windows, is beautifully bright. Clean lines and whitewashed walls give it a modern appearance but there are some nice traditional touches, including an open fireplace and lovely terracotta flooring. The room has been cleverly organised to provide one main seating area, positioned around an entertainment centre with huge flat screen 3D television, DVD player, PS3 and Apple TV and several more intimate, relaxed seating areas, with big squishy sofas, armchairs and occasional tables. There's even a piano for anyone who is musically inclined! 

Opposite the living area, the vast and extremely well-equipped kitchen, with terracotta tiling, wooden work tops and cupboards of the palest turquoise, is sufficiently gorgeous to tempt in even the unlikeliest of cooks to whip up a meal or two. There is a large dining-table and also direct access to the outdoor dining space. A few steps lead down from the kitchen directly into a games room on the lower ground floor, with pool table, table tennis and table football.

Four of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, located between the living area and a charming study. The two double bedrooms are en suite and there is also a twin and single room.

 A wide wooden staircase leads up to the first floor and to the remaining four bedrooms, all en suite with balconies and spacious walk-in wardrobes, and situated along the length of a large bright corridor. The balconies overlook the garden and, beyond that, the stunning bay of Tindari and the Aeolian Islands in the distance.


Local Sights

The views from Casalnuovo are wonderful, and it would be tempting to stay in the villa throughout your entire holiday in Sicily. However, there are lots of wonderful places within easy reach to visit and enjoy.
Basicò is the nearest town and has all you need as a base for your holiday.

Nearby Tindari is home to the Sanctuary of the Black Madonna of Tindari. The sanctuary boasts incredible views over Marinello beach with it unusual tongue of sand. These beaches - part of the Marinello Nature Reserve - are the closest to Casalnuovo. Predominantly pebbly, with fabulous views of Panarea and Stromboli as well as crystal clear water, a day at the beach is not to miss!

One of Sicily's prettiest medieval village, Montalbano Elicona, is not far from the villa. The town has an incredibly impressive castle and its streets wind their way up the town's hills, with Sicily's beautiful landscape rolling out below.

For a more buzzing atmosphere then you should visit Cefalù. As one of Sicily's top summer destination this town has it all: a charming historic centre, great bars and restaurants, impressive architecture and a lovely beach.

Messina is about an hour's drive from the villa, and is a pretty city with elegant Art Nouveau buildings and some charmingly named seaside villages nearby. Visit Pace, Paradiso or Contemplazione. At the most northerly point lies the village Ganzirri, with its salt lake, home to some great restaurants and bars that are especially captivating at night.

Taormina, although slightly further away, is also a great place to visit. Its stylish streets and evocative views over the sea and Mount Etna have been enchanting tourists for centuries.

Local Experiences

After seeing the Aeolian Islands in the distance from Casalnuovo, you'll certainly want to visit these beautiful islands. There are regular boat services from Milazzo, and a day trip to one of the islands is a wonderful day out. Visit Vulcano or Stromboli (both live volcanoes) or chic Lipari for a memorable day out.

Don't forget to take a bit of time out to see Milazzo's Spanish quarter or the wonderful Capo Milazzo, with views of the islands ahead of you and Mount Etna behind you.

Impressive Mount Etna is not too far a drive from the villa, and should not be missed. We offer a range of extra services and experiences on and around Etna. From family hikes, to jeep safaris, or perhaps a spot of wine tasting for good measure, there's something for everyone.

Nature lovers will also love the Nebrodi Mountains, with wonderful tracks to follow, offering great views and beautiful examples of Sicily's fantastic flora and fauna.

The Alcantara Gorges are a great destination for a day our. Visit and fall in love with the unique look of the basalt canyons. You can hike, swim or body raft in the cool water - a really unusually and fun adventure for the family!

If staying at the villa sounds like the perfect break then you should Book a Cook. A local chef will come to the villa and provide you and your guests with a delicious Sicilian meal. Absolute luxury! Guests can also learn the secrets of making pizza or pasta with in-villa cookery classes.

Casalnuovo also has its own stables, so keen riders should explore this organic estate's trails and tracks on horseback.


The pool is open to guests from 25th April to 24th October.

Casalnuovo is an eco-friendly property. Rainwater is collected in underground water tanks and solar power provides energy. The house is thermally insulated and therefore cool in the summer, rendering air conditioning unnecessary.

The house is set in a 15-acre organic estate of olive groves, fruit trees, almond and nut trees and is a sanctuary for wildlife. Guests are welcome to help themselves to fruit and vegetables including tomatoes, onions, aubergines and herbs. Over two kilometres of tracks and paths across the estate provide plenty of walking opportunities for families and large groups and those who want to get away from it all.

For guests that enjoy horse riding, Casalnuovo has an on site stable with a couple of friendly horses! The location offers some superb horse treks, suitable for beginners and experienced riders. To take advantage of this service there is a charge of Euro 20 per hour or Euro 40 per hour if an instructor is required. For further information or to make a booking please contact us.

Casalnuovo is also an excellent location for companies seeking venues for hosting seminars and team building events.
