IT'S EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED!

It's exactly as described!
  • 5 of 5
The perfect way to visit Taormina. Just minutes away from City Center, but away from traffic and congestion. All facilities needed for self-catering, including good quality cookware. Bed very comfortable; pool always clean, grounds filled with fruit trees and flowers. Beautiful, restful, peaceful. Monica, guest coordinator, always available with beautiful spirit and helpful information. Owner stopped by with wine made in his vineyard as a welcome gift! This is great for couples and for families - there is privacy and opportunity to connect with others. I would return with joy!

REVIEW

  • 4 of 5
The property lived up to the description on the website with very well furnished and equipped accommodation, a very peaceful location and wonderful swimming pool area. The entire was clean and well maintained.

It connected very well with the motorway with easy access to Taormina, Mount, Etna etc.

The local town was not particularly interesting or attractive but had a good range of shops and some restaurants.

Ivana, the owner's representative was very helpful

It would have been useful to have been provided with travel directions to the property and to have a sign at the gate to identify it

I would certainly recommend it as a location for a restful time away from the designer lead and busy town of Taormina but still within easy reach for good restaurants and wonderful scenery.

NICE (BUT NO LUXURY) TOWNHOUSE IN A NICE LOCATION

  • 3 of 5
The description is somewhat misleading. These are not "stand-alone" small cottages, but town houses (in a row of 5). Each town house has its own terrace and small front yard, enclosed by rows of oleander. It depends on the neighbors how much you can enjoy your privacy. Two single beds are located in a gallery overseeing the kitchen-living room areas and are only accessible using a ladder. There is no closet, there is one rack for clothes, four drawers and several shelves (with a curtain) in the hallway between the bedroom and the kitchen/living room. The bathroom is rather small w/o daylight. The kitchen/living room is rather dark - when inside during the day, one always needs to have the light on. In the kitchen, there is a stove with 2 cooking plates, but no oven or microwave.
The town house is nice and well kept, but certainly not luxurious. There is a cleaning service once a week, the towels and bed linen were changed once a week and extra towels for the pool were provided.
The estate is beautiful, and the swimming pool area is great. The location (near Giardini Naxos) is ideal for day excursions in the Etna region or along the coastline. We were welcomed by a very friendly staff member, she gave us very valuable advice and was very helpful.
We enjoyed our stay, but according to the description we had expected separate small cottages and more "luxurious" furnishing.

Owner's Response: Hello I don't agree with your comments. The property and the cottages perfectly match with the website description. There is a video that can be seen in the property website that shows all the houses interiors and great part of the outdoor. It is one of the very rare case where you have a real video giving the exact representation of the property. Coming to the particular the gallery has got 2 twins bed for children 5/15 as clearly expressed in the direct website and in the Homeaway description. We have never considered to accomodate an adult there.
This is the ideal property for country lovers in an amazing scenary between Etna and the sea surrounded by lemons, oranges and olive trees. The 5 cottages are furnished simply but with a certain elegance. Consider also that everithing functions perfectly since we have an inhouse mantainor that you don't see often but is always there !We can't forget to stay in a country accomodation (paradisiac but country accomodation). Consider that you payd weekly € 750 with all services included !
Many Thanks Gabriele
