Without any doubt one of the best place I have stayed on a hotel/Villa. It's close to the beach, Etna, Taormina, Airport, or any other sites you might want visit in Catania/Messina area. And being close to all areas, you can still retreat to the quite villa, and enjoy one of the 2 pools or the SPA, and the astonishing view of the coast (and Etna).
Main points of the Hotel/House
Highest service quality (by Marco the owner)
I can keep writing………
For sure “I’ll be back”.
We- couple and my mother stayed for 6 days at the upper right flat ( I forgot the name).
Really enjoyed the stay .Nice views and company ( lots of cats ).
I agree with the previous reviewer that the kitchen is not made and equipped to prepare big dinners.( Dear Marco...a chopping board and a whisk would be good to add :-)) So we used the BBQ area a couple of times which is great.
Overall everything is there what you need ..pool ...bbq ...washing machine...
Thank you Marco for your help and quick responses when I texted you!
We will be back .
We stayed here for 3 nights and Marco was a great host. He was responing quick, on mails and text messages. It was a great view of the Mediterran sea from our terrace. The pool area can be crowded if all recidens will use it. It's located about 40 min. drive from Catania airport which was great when having an early morning flight. It took about an hour drive to come to Etna base camp. The kitchen is not made to prepare big dinners, but contained a great gas stove and a small oven.
This property is fantastic. The apartments are air conditioned and well equipped. If there is anything extra you require Marco is fantastic in bringing it to you very quickly. The shared pool is great and just perfect for cooling off. Our children loved it. There is a second plunge pool which we used when the top pool was busy, and again it was a lovely relaxing way to cool down. There is a lovely well maintained garden and plenty of shade for when the sun is hot. Nearby, within a very short drive are 2 pizza places, we recommend pronto pizza takeaway.
The beaches are a10 minute drive and both Mascali and Giarre nearby is great for an evening stroll.
We have stayed here twice and we will definitely return.
It is our children's favourite place to stay!
