Riposto House Rental Photos and Description

Well furnished houses, 5 sleeps, bike to the beach and enjoy beautiful views

Casa Tancredi and Casa Aretusa are located in a residence on a 10 acres lemon estate and enjoys beautiful sea views. It is located about 700 m from the coast. Guests can use the available bicycles to reach the coast, biking on scenery paths. There is also a wide lawn and a playground for children. The residence has a vast variety of Mediterranean plants and flowers.

Both Casa Tancredi and Casa Aretusa have a spacious terrace and a private garden. They are very spacious and with high quality high quality furniture and bathroom with whirlpool shower. Wireless Internet for free. The house is composed by a living room with open kitchen, dining table and sitting area with double sofa bed; a bathroom with toilet, bidet and shower and a spacious bedroom with double bed and the possibility of adding a single bed.

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 meters above sea level, they are a favorite 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!

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 favored route, with functional and convenient relax areas, a safe path, signed with information panels and tourist signs.

Just lovely

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation in quiet beautiful green surroundings (a real oasis) Very well equipped, clean and comfortable and owners very welcoming and helpful. Swimming Pool planned for future would be real asset

Car essential - as away from amenities except for one excellent fish restaurant within walking distance.

Nearest beach at least 2 km from property and not 700 meters as described.

Directions to property given by Owners Direct Very poor / non existent!

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
