We have just returned from an amazing holiday. Expectations were high having read previous reviews for these apartments but the reality surpassed them all. With views to Etna in front, the sea the the left and the mountains to the right, the apartment must have one of the best views in the world. The balcony is enormous, stretching the full length of the building and is bigger than many holiday apartments we have stayed in! My only reservation when booking was that the bathroom looked dated and a previous reviewer commented on the poor shower. We were delighted to find that the apartment has recently been renovated and both the kitchen and bathroom are now very modern and stylish. We were made to feel very welcome and Claudio is always on hand if needed, but he is also very unobtrusive and respectful of your privacy. Like other reviewers on here, we can't recommend these apartments strongly enough. Thank you for a fantastic holiday and some wonderful memories

“Perfect Location”

Like many of the reviewers, found this Apartment on the Internet. We are a couple and knew that it would be perfect for us. We stayed in Apartment `A`. The views were fabulous to say the least and on the first night Etna gave us a wonderful spectacular display!! The
apartment is very well equipped, the bedroom has plenty of storage space with a lovely dresser and patio windows. The lounge is large enough to relax and eat in and the kitchen
has just enough equipment to make breakfast and lunch. The views on the verandah include the bays of Giadarno Naxos, Etna and Castlemola. It also has sun loungers and table and chairs to have breakfast and lunch outside. Getting about from the apartment is easy. Walked mostly but there are buses available at the end of Corso Umberto which will take you virtually anywhere you wish to go. Lovely stay. Thank you Claudio.

We always book family run properties, whether they are hotels or apartment type rentals. The reason is that we have found the hospitality, care and attention offered across the world by family run establishments to be great. We stayed in apt. A. The apartment was nice, the terrace great and the views spectacular. It had everything we needed except for a hairdryer and a kettle, but that wasn’t really a big problem. The owner Claudio met us when we arrived and talked us through the facilities and keys. He waived the charge for the Air Con which was much appreciated. He talked us through a map of the town explaining where the bus and cable car locations where.
We had a couple of occasions to ring him for help (Air Con and oven operation) and he came and sorted them for us. We did try to strike up a conversation a couple of times but it was evident that he really wasn’t interested. We have no complaints about the apartment facilities or price but we found Claudio to be sadly lacking in the hospitality stakes, more like a caretaker than a host of a property. We felt he had absolutely no interest is us as his guests. On our last day we explained that we would be leaving early around 8am the next morning for the airport and would leave the keys in the apt. He said he would see us that evening to say goodbye. We never saw his again. What a difference to Leo, our host the week before in Castellammare Del Golfo who actually got up a 6am to say thank you for choosing his apt. and wished us Bon Voyage.
