Giarre, Province of Catania, Sicily
Enjoy the sun, the warm temperature and the breathtaking Sicilian landscapes! Charming Etna is a welcoming single house on the ground floor recently refurbished with new and modern furniture, heating and air conditioning. Its two bedrooms, one with private bathroom, either with shower stall, offer the great choice for singles or couples. The living room is an energetic colour harmony where a comfortable sofa could be a nice bed solution for two other people. The modern kitchen, full equipped with everything you need (fridge, electric oven, microwave, boiler, cutlery etc.), is perfect to someone who wants to make some special Sicilian recipe. Outside the kitchen, a small courtyard rich of colored plants where it’s possible eating during hot days. The private parking is close to the entrance and it’s reserved for the guests.

About the neighborhood
Staying in our house give you the opportunity to relax in a peaceful place and move on foot to go to supermarket, post office, pharmacy, bank, hairdresser, pizza restaurant, swimming pool, gym… Enjoy your holidays starting the day running, going to the swimming pool or relaxing in a coffee bar tasting a creamy ice cream, a differently flavored granita, big cannoli with ricotta cheese and other Sicilian typical sweets. During your walk you can see different colors and smell of fresh and typical local products while losing yourself in the volcano landscape . Close to the house two bus stations to reach Giarre, a small city full of different shops and Riposto with its typical fish market, the Touristic Harbour and the train station.
Getting around
Our accommodation is located in a strategic place, only 1 km far from the motorway A18, the most important way to reach the chief popular pearls of the Ionian sea, Taormina and Giardini Naxos, or cities full of art, history and culture as Catania, Siracusa, Caltagirone, Ragusa. The house location is also ideal for both sea and mountain lovers as it’s 15 minutes far from the beach and 40 minutes far from Etna Parks where it’s possible to make breathtaking excursions surrounded by the green of the nature and the black of the rocks. Driving around the small Etna villages, as Sant’Alfio, Milo and others, you can discover the “wine itineraries” visiting the most important wineries tasting and smelling the Sicilian best wines.
