Wonderful. Traditional Rustic Italian living at its best

  • 5 of 5

we had an extremely wonderful stay. Had a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Lovely little touches like a welcome pack of fresh fruit & vegetables & cold bottle of beer which was enjoyed by my husband after the car journey from the airport. We love the area. If you want to explore this side of Sicily then this is a great base to do so, couldn't recommend highly enough. We would love to visit again in the future. Thank you to a lovely family for allowing us to stay at their beautiful house,

"Stayed in August 2012 and had a wonderful time. The owners were so welcoming and generous, the property is beautifully and artfully furnished and comfortable, even in the height of summer. A lovely safe and clean pool too, that our children loved.

A great location for day trips to the surrounding area."

The house was comfortable with airco and good facilities. The owner gave us a very warm welcome. One small minuspoint was the fact that the house lies direct at a busy road and opposite a sportspark which is a bit noisy

Das Haus war für 4 Personen großzügig geschnitten und war für die Ankunft ordentlich und sauber

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus mit schönem Garten und sauberen Pool (der Eigentümer Emilio kommt regelmäßig zur Pool- und Gartenpflege) liegt verkehrsgünstig mit kurzer Entfernung zum schönen Städtchen Zafferana Etnea. Die überregionale Autobahn ist in knapp 10 Minuten erreicht. Die Nahversorgung / Supermärkte sind ab ca. 1 km erreicht, ein gutes Restaurant nur ca. 300 m weg, Ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge Richtung Taormina, Catania oder zum Ätna, welcher vom Garten gut zu sehen ist. Einziger Wermutstropfen ist die Strasse, welche am Grundstück verläuft und auch nachts noch einigermaßen befahren wird.

A beautiful place. The house inside offers you everything.. We were allowed to use all sorts of foodstuffs. The living room is pleasant. The kitchen is excellent. The pool and the lawn are beautiful. From there, an unforgettable view of Mount Etna..The owners are very friendly people. We have received a lot of useful information.

I can recommend this house to anyone.
