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:

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!

Top quality comfort and relax

  • 5 of 5

I spent one week with my big family in this amazing place. My apartment, surrounded by a wonderful, well kept garden, was elegantly furnished and equipped with all we needed to enjoy our holiday. The place was spotless and tidy and Francesco helped us in any way giving us precious advice on many practical issues. The only thing that was missing according to us was laundry facilities on the premises (a washing machine to me is vital) but this doesn't influence my overall impression of the place.

Traumurlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Unser gebuchtes 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!!!

Un lieu calme et enchanteur.

  • 4 of 5

Le descriptif de la maison était conforme à la réalité.

Cette maison, installée dans une vaste propriété agricole, fait partie d'un ensemble de bâtiments loués aux touristes. Cette propriété est parfaite, bien équipée, bien entretenue. Une voiture est nécessaire pour se rendre au charmant village de Torre Archirafi pour acheter son pain, ou bien se rendre un peu plus loin au marché de Riposto. Entre l'Etna, dans le dos, et la mer, devant, le paysage à l'alentour est très beau. Les hectares de citronniers plantés sur la propriété embaument.

Il manque peut être une piscine, mais qui est en projet, semble-t-il.

Les propriétaires sont au petit soin, agréables et charmants, pas embêtants du tout (ils vivent sur place). C'est un lieu que je recommande.

Urlaub pur

  • 5 of 5

Die Unterkunft ist sehr, sehr schön, großzügig, modern (W-LAN) und gleichzeitig romantisch eingerichtet, die Ausstattung perfekt, alles sauber, dazu der herrliche große Garten und der Blick auf's Meer.

Die größte Attraktion war für uns der Ätna. Nachts hat man vom Garten aus deutlich gesehen, wie die rote Lava den Berg hinunterlief. Ein Auto ist aber absolut notwendig. Ich kann den Aufenthalt in Torre Archirafi absolut empfehlen.

Fantastico

  • 5 of 5

Un paradiso! Perfetto in ogni dettaglio. Gli appartamenti sono confortevoli, puliti, ben arredati, anche le stoviglie sono scelte con gusto. Il giardino è un paradiso di fiori, piante, erba talmente soffice da sembrare un tappeto e con profumi che cambiano dal giorno alla notte. Il tutto in un silenzio irreale.

La posizione è perfetta per visitare tutta l'area dell'Etna.

Francesco è un padrone di casa gentile e premuroso.

Il prossimo anno ci sarà anche la piscina!

Non saprei quali altri elogi aggiungere. Lo consiglio assolutamente.

Fausto e Luisa, relax tra verde e profumi

  • 5 of 5

abbiamo trascorso una settimana tra giugno e luglio in questa bellissima struttura di fianco ad un agrumeto ai piedi dell'Etna, molto ben curato il verde con fiori bellissimi e profumati, ben curato e confortevole l'appartamento. Relax nel verde a pochi chilometri da splendide località facilmente raggiungibili. Veramente gentili e disponibili i proprietari. Certamente da consigliare.

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 theater 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 kilometers 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
