Agriturismo Marino was a perfect location set in acres of farmland overlooking Mount Etna. Our apartment was large, traditional, well equipped with a balcony overlooking Mount Etna. Even though we arrived late in the evening the owner was there to greet us with wine and fruit. The Marino family spoke good English and made us very welcome. Any little problems were dealt with quickly.
Relaxing with beautiful views, fruit trees, roses and the sound of the countryside made this holiday even more special for our famly. We could walk into town and to the beach easily. A large supermarket is also close by. You can see the lovely hillside town of Taormina which is only a few miles away from the driveway which is well lit at night.
We also had a wonderful local meal at the restaurant just a short walk away through the grounds.
This is a truly wonderful taste of Sicily living in such tranquil surroundings with the added extra of the Marino family and their workers to make your stay so very enjoyable. You return home with wonderful memories.

Francesco Marino in the mid '900 bought some of the present houses from a Venetian noble family and had the idea of creating a tourist farm. Marino family comes from four generation of farmers loving the "land". They still respect the rural tradition of Sicilian hospitality. It is located 800 meters far from the beach, in one of the most beautiful area in Sicily, next to Taormina, between the sea and Etna, the highest active Volcano in Europe. ... more less
