Exeptionally beautiful country and a perfect place to stay to explore the island.
There is nothing that could improve this accommodation! It is exceptionally clean, modern, well maintained and ideally situated to explore Etna and the region. Our two week stay was only just enough to see the best parts and gain a true flavour of Sicilian life.
The accommodation is a ground floor apartment in a house divided with another rented property, but both entrances and apartments are private and have their own car parking and patio area for eating outdoors. Ours was immaculate in every way and our hosts Daniella and Antonio (who live in the house next door) are the most wonderfully helpful and kind people. We were treated to their own home grown delicious tomatoes, basil, garlic, figs and a local delicacy: Arancini. They were always keen to help in any way yet never intruded on our holiday. We LOVED the area! A car is essential if you want to explore though: our highlights were visiting Mount Etna (expensive, but well worth the money), swimming in the cristal clear sea with fish surrounding us, walking along the gorges and swimming in the (welcome) cool and clear river water plus discovering all the wildlife this island has to offer. Also, the ice creams here (Gelato) are the best in the world! If you have children visit Aqualand (half an hour away) for a day of extreme slides, rides and water fun. A day trip to Cava Grande and the Alcantara Gorge are also a must. The island, wildlife, this apartment, our hosts and the exceptional food made this our best holiday ever - thank you so much Daniella and Antonio, we hope we will come back to see you again one day, you are the perfect hosts!
