Bicycle path Torre Archirafi-Alcantara: The cycle path Torre Archirafi - Alcantara develops for a distance of approximately 12.700 km, mostly flat course and sometimes with a minimum slope, close to 0. The route crosses the territories of Riposto, Mascali, Fiumefreddo and Calatabiano but involves the whole area of the Etna base. The cyclists will travel along a favoured route, with functional and convenient relax areas, a safe path, signed with information panels and tourist signs.

Mount Etna - skiing on a volcano: Torre Archirafi is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea e Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 m above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!

Wunderbarer Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

In der Zeit zwischen 23.08-06.09.2014 waren wir in der wunder bar eingerichteten Ferien Wohnung die keine Wünsche offen lies.

Die Wohnung ist der optimale Standort für die Besichtigung sehr vieler Sehenswürdigkeiten an de Ostküste. Der geniale Garten ist ein sehr schön angelt, ist optimal zum verweilen. Ruhe und Erholung für die Seele. Für uns war es ein wunderbarer erholsamer Aufenthalt auf Sizilien.

Die Besitzer sollen das genau so weiterführen.

Ein perfekter Ort zum entspannen.

Vielen Dank für den wunderbaren Urlaub.

Traumurlaub!!

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus liegt im Torre Archirafi Resort, einer Anlage mit mehreren Wohneinheiten, umgeben von einer Zitronenplantage. Ausreichend Privatsphäre ist gegeben. Francesco und seine Mutter haben uns den Aufenthalt sehr angenehm gestaltet. Sie sind sehr nette, herzliche und aufmerksame Gastgeber. Das gesamte Grundstück ist sehr gepflegt mit wunderbaren Palmen, Hibiskus, Orleander, Bougainvillea und Strelitzien - ein Rausch an Blüten, Farben und Düften.

Das Ferienhaus ist komfortabel ausgestattet, sehr sauber, die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man benötigt, um sich selber zu versorgen. Besonders angenehm empfanden wir die Klimaanlage, insbesondere im Schlafzimmer. Von der Terrasse hat man einen herrlichen Blick auf das Meer und von den verschiedenen Sitzgruppen im Gemeinschaftgarten blickt man auf den Ätna. Wir hatten das Glück, den Ätna aktiv zu erleben. Vom Garten aus konnten wir Eruptionen beobachten und sehen, wie die Lava am Hang entlang lief - spektakulär!! Das Ferienhaus ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt, um die gesamte Ostküste Siziliens zu entdecken. Wir empfehlen die Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiter!!!

Relax e confort ad alto livello

  • 5 of 5

Ho soggiornato qui con la mia famiglia una settimana. Il posto, sebbene un po' isolato, è magnifico. Bella, curata e molto pulita la sistemazione, dotata di tutti i comfort, con molto spazio sia all'aperto che al chiuso. L'alloggio è dotato di personalità ed eleganza; il giardino in cui è ospitato è lussureggiante e curatissimo. Francesco e la sua famiglia sono gentili, garbati e sempre pronti a dare consigli che noi abbiamo sperimentato e giudicato validissimi.

Unica mancanza (lieve): l'assenza di una lavatrice comune, soprattutto per famiglie numerose come la mia.

Très reposant

  • 5 of 5

C'est une excellente adresse .C'est un peu difficile à trouver sans GPS, mais en appelant le propriétaire, il est venu nous chercher immédiatement. L'appartement est très confortable, et surtout le jardin qui est très verdoyant et surtout très reposant . L'agencement du jardin permet à chaque logement d'avoir son intimité. C'est une adresse à recommander sans problème.

un paradiso

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati molto contenti del nostro soggiorno. La casa è comodissima, pulita e molto piacevole, spazio e qualità delle prestazioni. Il giardino è magnifico e per chi vuole risposarsi è l'ideale. Si puo' raggiungere tutti i siti interessanti di questa parte della Sicilia : Etna, Taormina, Syracuse, ecc... voto 5 stelle.. Speriamo tornare un'altra volta..

Torre Archirafi
Car: recommended

Torre Archirafi is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The place lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and between the volcano Etna and the sea. Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with a sandy beach and a promenade, is just 20 km away. Beside it we find Taormina ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’ and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Torre Archirafi. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo“. 2 km from Torre Archirafi is a big supermarket.

Other Activities: Bicycle path Torre Archirafi - Alcantara
