Loved this house, stayed 8 days. Great spot for touring the east/south east of Sicily by car. Walk to restaurants, it's not too busy, property manager was lovely, very helpful. Everything was ship-shape, wonderful for 2 couples. Really enjoyed our stay.More

Firstly, communication with the owner Michael was excellent - he answered all my questions (and there were many!) very promptly, even helping us to find vegan restaurants and tennis courts we could use. When we arrived at the house, the apartment was spotlessly clean and...More

About the neighborhood
Although only meters from the coast, Our beautiful town is surrounded by picturesque mountains, most notably Italy's most active volcano Mt Etna. Only a short drive away, this popular tourist attraction is a must see. Take a guided tour where you can see the lava flow and if lucky at night, you may even see this from the property's roof top terrace.

SEA FOOD Restaurants ? everywhere! straight from the Mediterranean to your plate!

Getting around
The best way to enjoy the Island of Sicily is by car . The island enjoys a spacious freeway that covers 80% of the island , however you can drive right around the island on their secondary main rd the SS114, both these roads are close by to Casa Marco Polo. Home Made Stays also offers advice on flights throughout Europe, airport transfers & car hire.

The peak season in Sicily as well as Italy is June to late September. Home made stays recommends you book early to avoid disappointment

How to get there
Airport: Catania Fontanarossa : 21.7 mi
Railway: Giarre Riposto: 3.1 mi
Ferry: Messina : 28.0 mi
If you arrive by Catania Airport put in the GPS Address:
11 Via Marco Polo. Torre Archirafi (Riposto) Catania.
It’s about 45 minutes’ drive from the Catania Fontanarossa airport. Our suggestion is to go on google map and print off directions and also use the GPS. The most direct way is to travel onto the A18 To Messina (all freeway signage is GREEN) head towards a green sign that says Tangenziale (IN GREEN). You will see this word/sign at the airport. Travel straight through to the Telepass Toll gate arches (approx. 12 Ks), grab a ticket and keep on the A18 (still heading toward Messina) until you reach GIARRE turnoff off on your right.
Once on the GIARRE turnoff you will need to pay 70 Euro cents toll (there is a person there). Just keep in mind you need to be driving down toward the sea...
