“Great starting point to discover this beautiful part of Sicily!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Codavolpe is situated in a great citrus grove. From this beautiful place we daily had our trips to the awesome sights of this region.
The appartment we had was an open planned living room/kitchen, a bath room and a loft with a double bed and a single bed. With a ceiling van, wich was very necessary this time of year!!
The kitchen utensils were minimal. The appartment was well maintanined and clean.
The owner of the property, Elena, is a kind, helpful woman, with a discreet attitude.

Stayed July 2013, traveled as a couple

As said in other reviews, this accommodation is on a farm which grows citrus fruit (the used to grow kiwis but are not harvesting them this year); there is a great view of the sea in one direction and Mount Etna in the other. We were a party of three retired people - one couple plus a friend, so we used two apartments. We didn't use the self-catering facilities at all, but relied on Elena's cooking. Elena, the owner, is a very friendly person who speaks English and knows a lot about Sicily, so it was a pleasure to talk with her. The apartments are big enough for a family (say 2 parents and three children) but we had them to ourselves. It was relaxing, friendly and beautiful. We thought it very good value too (prices may be different in the high season).

We went in 2011 to sicily by plane (from Netherlands). We decided to find our a overnight addresses during our trip without booking. By accident we found Codavolpe during our trip.

Due to the great experience we had, we spend a four days at Codavolpe were we enjoyed the hospitality of elena, the owner. We enjoyed the great fresh breakfast she made for us. The room for breakfast is in a beautiful characteristic house with a nice history. We did feel like being at home during our stay at Codavolpe. Also the location with many citrus trees makes it special. The location gives also a nice view over the coastline unto taormina. On the backside mount Etna is visible.

The great area close to Catania has many things to enjoy, nature but also nice towns.

We will come back to this beautiful location in several years, it was one of the best experiences we ever had during a stay at a agriturismo.

We spent one very pleasant night here, including dinner. The acomodation was nice, with steps to the sleeping area. When the clouds cleared there views of Etna. Elena grows a good variety of fruit and makes the preserves for breakfast. All in all a very good night.

I have visited Codavolpe several times and I wish I could be able to spend at
least a week every year at this lovely "agriturismo". If you love nature and
to be out of the chaotic life of town to recharge your batteries, well, this
is the place! We were looking for a place close to the beach but yet far from
the chaos so we were able to enjoy the beautiful sea of sicily and to relax at
codavolpe after a long tiring day at the beach. We had our own little
apartment, lovely furnished in country style and we were able to cook our food
whenever we wanted. Elena, the owner, is a lovely lady and a great cook so we
enjoyed her cousine and we got to try many new recipees. The only thing is
that you have to book in advance your dinner because she cooks on demand. I
strongly recommend the place and I wish there could be more genuine place like
this in Sicily.

Lovely location in a lemon, kiwi and cherry orchard on Mt Etna slopes, close to the autostrada, however in a haven of peace. Breathtaking views to die for of Mt Etna, Messina strait, etc. Catania is a mere 15 minutes away. If you do not have your car, the owner will personally drive you to the to the city centre for your obliged evening passeggiata, espresso and/or cannelloni a la Norma. Dinner is provided under request and will satisfy even the most decerning palate. It is personally cooked by the landlady and served in the former wine pressing area of the manor house. Typical Sicilian specialties, of course! The style of the main building and six guest appartments can be best defined as "Classical Sicilian Farm" surrounded by a large green area flooded with flowers. Meals al fresco can also be served there as well. Accommodations are fully equipped with kitchenette, private facilities, good beds, etc. Very clean. Stayed there on two occasions and was never disappointed. Will return for a third time. Very good price/quality relationship, considering Italian horrendous accommodation rates. Recommended for families with children. They can run freely in a safe environment while you enjoy your Martinis in the porch.

I just came back from wonderful vacation in Sicily. With my wife and daughter we stayed in Codavolpe farm recommended by my friend. Farm is located pretty close to the sea coast with beautiful view of Etna and sea. In place there is really big citrus garden with a lot of space to walk and play with a child. The owner (Elena) is very warm and friendly person who can communicate in English what helps us a lot for example to organize some trips etc. Going to Italy we expected to have a good food and in Codavolpe we had it, delicious and authentic, starting with breakfast with home made jams prepared from fruits collected in the farm. Traditional dinners with meat or fish and local wines were fantastic (ask for polpette on lemon leaves, yummy!). It was nice that we could eat dinner with other guests with whom we could talk and have nice time.
Regarding the dinner once happened that we wanted to have a dinner but we couldn’t because we said in the last moment and Elena had no chance to make it for us.
The place is calm and peaceful, guest house was spacious and clean with own kitchen to cook so we could prepare something by ourselves too. I liked also to take a bike (free!) to ride around and play ping-pong.
I have to say I really relaxed there; Codavolpe left us very positive feelings and memories.
