Villa La Timpa, Santa Tecla, Sicily   


Blending perfectly with the surrounding lush Mediterranean scrub, La Timpa amply provides comfort and style inside, however holidaying here is all about spending time outside in the wonderful Sicilian climate  in a choice of outdoor living spaces, surrounded by wonderful sea views. At the heart of the Villa is the large sun terrace on the first floor which also features an outdoor kitchen and a covered dining terrace. At the lower level is a second outside kitchenette and a spacious covered lounging area. The amazing pool terrace, lush with palms is terraced into the rock face.  



La Timpa is one of a small enclave of private villas within the Timpa nature reserve,  close to S. Tecla, a small fishing village on the Ionian coast of Sicily, with a few small restaurants and shop, just a few kilometres away from Acireale. In a very private position,  there is  access to the rocks and sea within an easy walk, at the cost of a fee, at the lido of the Santa Tecla Palace Hotel where there is also a  restaurant.  La Timpa is well placed for exploring  the Mount Etna National Park and the well-known resort of Taormina, Catania and Syracuse.

Location of La Timpa
Acireale, Sicily

Flights to Catania, Trapani (TPS) & Palermo  (PMO) Airports

We don't book flights, we prefer to stick to what we love doing ( finding the best villas in the best places) below is  a rather good app showing flight routes, airlines, prices with links to the airlines to book.

 ** Top Tip **, if you avoid flying at the weekends or in different durations, 5,10 16 nights, flights are often a lot cheaper, and remember with Freelance you can arrive ANY DAY at our villas, good eh ...
