100% conforme à la description

  • 5 of 5

2 adults + 2 children (6 & 9) from France : we all loved this charming place, well designed and effectively maintained.

Some other places we went during our stay in Sicily were good too but “La Casa Del Principe” really proposes a good mix of coziness, countryside, equipment and location.

Kids enjoyed the big and clean swimming pool with its diving board.

A detail we also appreciated: an efficient air conditioning during this blazing summer peak.

Monica is very helpful when needed and respects your privacy as well.

Beaucoup de commentaires étant en anglais : n’hésitez pas, les francophones (Monica parle très bien Français également pour vous accueillir…)

Nice location, with views of Mt Etna

  • 4 of 5

Monica the house Manager was so helpful. Our flight was late in and she waited until 10.30 pm to collect us from the motorway exit near the property with her husband. Many thanks for this. She also took enough time to run through everything about the property, the restaurants and local sites as well as shopping. We were in Trinacria cottage, its in a building with other cottages. we were really lucky and had the whole week of the pool to ourselves which was lovely and very clean, with plenty of space around for multiple families when its busier. Gabriele came and said hello and advised us of a restaurant 20 minutes away, "where locals go" for good food at reasonable prices. Its name was Florri in the village of Granita. Beautiful food at reasonable prices - would recommend this. Taormina was nice and we went up in the cable car. Further up the hill is Castelmola, this is a lovely hilltop village, very picturesque, and great views with some local food served Sicilian style. Local beach and harbour is Gardini Naxos. You can have a nice stroll and have lunch with nice views.

Amazing location, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

My wife myself and our little boy travelled to Sicily this June. We picked a flat as part of the Case Del Principe residence and it was an amazing decision. The property is beautifully surrounded by lemon and orange groves and it has beautiful views of the Mount Etna. Also, the swimming pool is fantastic and cleaned on a daily basis. The property is 5 mins drive from Trappello, which is a village/town with everything you need, from local fisherman to bakery, 2 chemists and plenty of caffes. Also, if you want to go out for dinner, Naxos is a 12mins drive from the house, so you can easily park on the seafront and enjoy one of the many fish restaurants. Monica, who manages the houses, is an efficient and helpful property manager who will answer all of your questions and more. Also, we were so lucky to meet the Principe himself, who gave us few tips on where to go for dinner and where is the best beach around the coast. An amazing holiday and a beautiful place to stay with kids and family. Highly recommended

An example to follow for all agriturismo

  • 5 of 5

A charming and very well maintained place in a real and living place.

In the middle of an orangetree field, the smell of the orange flowers was delightfull as the daily freshly pressed orange/grappefruit juice. The weather was not hot enough to enjoy the very nice swimming pool but late evenings along the pool in summer must be extraordinary.

Monica was extremly helpfull for all our requests

As a summary: I highly recommend this place!

We definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

Returning home to Germany just 3 days ago, we already got the travel bug. We are a family of 4 persons (2 adults and 2 children of 7 and 6 years) that spent 3 weeks of their summer holidays in the beautiful

„case del principe“. Just when we entered the property through a big gate, we felt the Mediterranean flair due to palm trees, rhododendrons, lemon trees and lots of other typical flowers and plants. The people were extremely friendly, gave us helpful hints and cared a lot about our well-being. We stayed in a small house called „Trinacria“ which was well-equipped. Especially the air conditioners in the 2 main rooms were a blessing when the temperatures outside reached 30°C and more. The pool was wonderful and nicely encircled by plants and a bigger sun shelter that invited us to spend some time reading, sleeping, chatting in the comfortable seating furniture. The place is perfect for families because the pool is not far from the house and you share it with the maximum of 4 other tenants. Once a week the house was entirely cleaned and we got fresh towels, linen, etc., so that we could feel completely at home. Things you definitely need, when you travel to the „case del prinicipe“ are tanning oil, mosquito repellent and a car, because fortunately you don`t stay close to the crowdy tourist places like Giardini Naxos, so that it`s calm and you can relax perfectly. But nevertheless shops, beach and restaurants could be reached within 5 to 15 minutes by car. Finally we enjoyed our stay so much that we can only recommend you the „case del prinicipe“ most warmly. We definitely come back. And apart from this.... who can tell

to have met a real prince in life. ?
