QUITE LOVELY, QUITE DIFFERENT.

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at etna cottage on the 5th oct for 1 week. The setting of the cottage is quite breath taking and its very quiet which is so relaxing.The cottage its self we found to have everything you needed BUT i could have been a little more comfortable there is no living room area so to speek of ! 2 little fireside chairs ( which made my husband & myself feel 90 ! ) and i feel sure in the summer months you would not need to sit inside but in oct you do need to light the fire as it is cold when the sun goes down, also the shower runs out of hot water very quickly ! this cottage is really only suitable for 2 people really.PEDARA is in bad need of some resturants !! there really were very few places to eat and very few bars,however nicolosi had much more going on and pleny of places to eat.We found ourselves cooking using ruggeros bbq ( which was brilliant ! and i mean that ) but we really were hoping to eat out most nights.To do etna is a must dont be put off by the 54.00 it will cost you its the best 54.00 i have ever spent !. We spent 2 days in siracuse which was lovely and surrounding towns and villages were beautifull.
I feel i have left a mixed bag review really but i always find it helpfull when people are honest about the property they have stayed in.
This cottage is in the most lovely location and is so quiet and relaxing you simply cant not love it but with a few tweeks could be better , ruggero & his family were very welcoming and only to happy to help and maybe this setting was a little to rural for us and would be more suited to those who perhaps dont want / not bothered about going out in evenings.
if you would like a complete switch off this really is the place to go.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment. I shall make good use of it. I will replace the boiler with a bigger one good also for winter days. I shall also add more restaurants to the information book provided.
In summer there is lots of living space in the patio, but also in winter we have had families of four or five people who enjoyed their stay happily.

PERFECT SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week here. It's such a lovely, peaceful spot, away from roads and neighbors, self contained and with plenty of space for kids to run around in. Even the water tastes sweet!

The location is great. All the coast from Taormina to Syracuse is easily reachable within an hour or so and the Rifugio Sapienza is just 20mins in the other direction for trips up to the top of Etna - expensive at about 80euro per adult for cable car, truck ride and guide, but so worth it! Small nearby towns like Pedara and Trecastagni, where there are great shops and all the basic supplies you'll need, are also worth a visit. For anyone who doesn't know the area, I'd recommend getting satnav for the car, the roads are small, winding, there are loads of them and road signs can be patchy.

Everything was clean and well maintained and worked as it should. Plenty of supplies to get the barbecue going, too. Ruggero was very helpful, meeting us at Catania airport on arrival day and leading us up to the cottage, which you could never hope to find on your own first time (even with satnav I'd guess!). He also made it up in perfect time to collect keys and return deposit on the final morning when we had to leave at 7am. Thanks!

I'd love to stay here again if/when we go back to Sicily and I will recommend to any friend or family member who wanted to go out there. For a couple, maybe two couples sharing or a small/young family I'd say it's perfect.

UNA EXPERIENCIA MAGNIFICA

  • 5 of 5
Nuestra estancia en Tarderia ha sido una experiencia magnifica. La casa, cuidada al detalle y muy acogedora nos ha hecho disfrutar las vacaciones con enorme placer.Cabe destacar la limpieza y gusto con que todo está dispuesto, y no olvidar el gran espacio exterior que te ofrece un montón de posibilidades: desayunar con vistas al Etna, recoger fruta deliciosa tu mismo de los frutales de la finca, pasear, disfrutar de la naturaleza y la calma, y dormir en pleno verano a una temperatura perfecta. El entorno es pura naturaleza, con el Etna muy cerca,lo que te lleva a poder hacer excursiones ràpidas y bellisimas. La casa está situada en un lugar equidistante de muchos lugares de interés: playa, Catania, Etna, Alcantara, Taormina, Siracusa, pueblos y paisajes del Madonie preciosos,..... y muchas cosas más. Para los niños es un lugar ideal y perfecto. Tienen mucho espacio libre. El trato con los propietarios ha sido una verdadera delicia: atentos, amables, simpáticos y muy hospitalarios y dispuestos a ayudarte. Os agradecemos Ruggero y Donatella enormemente vuestra atención. Para repetir muchísimas veces más. Un paraíso. Recomendable 100%. "

Etna Cottage is located within the Etna Natural Park and is at 900 mls. The weather is mild and the house, thanks to the building materials, maintains a constant temperature inside, even when outside is very warm or cold. The house is ideal for excursions to the volcano Etna for sightseeing (Taormina, Gole dell’Alcantara), baroque (Catania, Acireale, Noto, Modica), oenologic (visit to the wine cellars), archaeology tours (Siracusa, Piazza Armerina) or for marvellous sea swims (Acitrezza, Acicastello, Catania Plaja) or just for amusement (Catania by night). We suggest you hire a car, pack a good pair of excursions shoes, a swim suit, and bring with you lots of curiosity and a great desire to relax!
