The house has a fully furnished kitchen with an eating area. The living room is furnished simply in Italian style with a sitting area, fireplace and eating area. A bathroom with shower, toilet, lavatory and bidet is located on the ground floor. The first floor has two bedrooms with two-person beds and a smaller room with two separate beds. A WC with lavatory is also located on this floor.
The two-person bedroom has a TV, large clothes cupboard and commode. ** The villa faces on a large patio with two magnificent 150-year-old palm trees. The right side looks out over Etna with its plume of smoke. A swimming pool with a diving board is located at the side of the house. You can dive safely, since the pool is 3 metres deep under the board. The pool is surrounded by a large patio with a splendid view of the Alcantara Valley, with a glimpse of the ocean at the end of the valley. **Villa Aurora lies halfway up a mountain slope above the village of Francavilla di Sicilia.
It has a view of the Alcantara Valley and several villages, including Motta Camastra, Francavilla, and Castiglione di Sicilia.
