“Pleasant Country House”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We arrived at Oasi del Fiumefreddo in the early evening under escort of the very friendly local police. Our GPS had gone on strike, we had no map, no internet and thus asked them for assistance to find the place. Thankfully they were very helpful!

Oasi del Fiumefreddo is (probably) an old farmhouse that has been renovated and divided in several apartments. From the garden you look out over the surrounding country area and if feels as if you have entered a Pirandello story.

Our ground floor apartment was pleasant, clean and functional. It consisted of two good sized bedrooms, a small kitchen-living area and a bathroom. It was not very big, but all we required, especially because we mainly lived outside. Apart from our 'private' outdoor area, the grounds offer plenty of space for kids to roam around and for adults to relax in the shade of the trees, have a BBQ or enjoy the outdoor spa. A nice detail was the abundance of play equipment for children. Late October it was very quiet and we loved it.

The main reason we had opted for this venue was that we required a place suitable to less mobile people. We were not disappointed. One could enter the apartment from the back without the need to climb stairs. If using the front entrance there were a few steps (3 from memory), but they were just manageable. If needed we could probably have carried the outdoor set from the front of the house to the back where there was plenty of space to accommodate it. The only down-point was that the kitchen and bathroom were perhaps a bit smallish for a wheelchair - although with some rearranging of the furniture it would probably have been fine. For us it was no issue, because indoors a walking stick was sufficient for our less mobile travel companion.

The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. Any query or request was promptly attended to. Although only one of the owners speaks English fluently, everyone else understands enough to sort out issues and if needed there is always Google Translator. It works a treat!

Liked best: The location & wheelchair access. If using a wheelchair, make sure you mention this when booking as they also have second floor apartments that are unsuitable. Please note that the bathroom is too small to care for a completely immobile person.

Stayed 4 days in a newly appointed cottage complete with kitchen and with a private garden ... Oasi del Fiumefreddo is surrounded by a pristine National Reserve yet all my needs were in a 1000 meter radius ... beach, restaurant, market, etc. Mt Etna is at your window and Taormina is a 15 minute drive. This is the best place I have stayed at in the area and recommend it highly ...
