Excelentes anfitriones, ayudan en todo lo que necesites

  • 5 of 5

Junto al río y al lado de la playa. El entorno, un poco extraño - algo caótico - pero los vecinos son excelentes, así como los anfitriones.

Muy bien equipada y con notables medidas de seguridad.

Repetiría, sin duda.

Traumhafter Familienurlaub?

  • 5 of 5

Die wunderschöne Unterkunft entsprach zu 100% der Beschreibung. Wir (Eltern und 2 Kinder) waren zur Sommerferienzeit (Ende Jul. - Anfang Aug.) dort und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Der Sandstrand ist nur 2 Gehminuten entfernt und selbst zur Ferienzeit war es dort so leer, dass man dort in Ruhe seine Zeit verweilen konnte. Nie war es am Strand eng oder stressig, man hatte immer die Möglichkeit sich min. 20 Meter von anderen Strandbesuchern zu positionieren. Das Feriendorf “San Leonardo“ ist sehr italienisch und nicht von Touristen überlaufen, nur selten hat man dort Ausländer getroffen -> zum Abschalten also perfekt. Die Menschen dort sind freundlich und kinderlieb, jedoch nicht aufdringlich. Man erlebt dort sehr authentisch das sizilianische Lebensgefühl. Sowohl von der Terrasse des Ferienhauses, als auch vom Strand aus konnten wir jeden Tag den Ätna sehen. Das Haus verfügt über eine sehr praktische Außendusche, die uns sowohl nach dem Meerbaden als auch zwischendurch eine Abkühlung beschert hat. Im Haus findet man alles, was man braucht. Die Vermieter sind super freundlich und hilfsbereit, sie haben uns sogar von Flughafen abgeholt und uns in das „Villaggio San Leonardo“ begleitet DANKE. In der näheren Umgebung gibt es einige gute Restaurants (es ist UNMÖGLICH in Sizilien eine schlechte Pizza zu bekommen (-: ), jedoch ist man auf jeden Fall auf ein Auto angewiesen. Wir überlegen nächstes Jahr wieder hin zu fahren.

Vriendelijke eigenaar

  • 2 of 5

Het meest positief waren we over de vriendelijke eigenaar die zeer behulpzaam was. Het huisje en de inrichting vielen tegen; erg gedateerd. Er is geen Wifi.

De buitenruimte (terras etc. ) is prima; ligging aan de rivier met prachtig uitzicht op de Etna. Het grote strand is dichtbij, maar was behoorlijk vervuild met zwerfvuil. Het huisje ligt op een afgesloten terrein met privé-huisjes; een aantal ervan zien er zeer onderkomen uit. Op het terrein zijn geen voorzieningen zoals winkeltjes, restaurantjes enz. Daarvoor moet je van het terrein af; boodschappen doen moet minimaal 15 km verderop in Lentini. . Je hebt beslist een auto nodig om er te komen.

Schönes kleines Ferienhaus am Fluss und Meer

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr wohl in diesem Ferienhaus gefühlt. Das Haus ist liebevoll eingerichtet und für eine Familie mit zwei Kindern vollkommen ausreichend. Die Nähe zum schönen, sauberen Strand war perfekt. Von der Terrasse aus konnte man den Ätner sehen wie er raucht...Die Vermieter wahren sehr herzlich und halfen bei Fragen weiter. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit. Grüße aus Berlin

Giudizio assolutamente positivo! Da ripetere!

  • 5 of 5

La primavera scorsa, io e la mia famiglia, abbiamo passato una indimenticabile settimana in questo cottage. Noi siamo Pugliesi, e pur essendo abituati a mare e paesaggi belli, possiamo dire che in questa villa, che è davvero "UN'OASI", la vacanza è proprio speciale.

Il Cottage, così come descritto, è molto funzionale, ameno ed elegante.

Abbiamo trovato tutti i confort di cui avevamo bisogno e spazio in abbondanza per i bimbi.

Il ricordo più vivo?...Grandi grigliate e grandi dormite in un silenzio quasi irreale.

Per me che sono appassionato di canoa, (né ho una gonfiabile che porto sempre con me) l'habitat mi ha permesso di pagaiare indisturbato sull'ampio fiume.

La gentilezza e disponibilità dei proprietari ha reso, poi, tutto perfetto.

Owner's Response: Rigrazio la simpaticissima famiglia pugliese. Quando ospitalità si trasforma in amicizia, perchè gli affittuari si sentono in perfetto loro agio, credo che per un proprietario sia una delle più grosse siddisfazioni. Grazie e a presto.
