The location is ideal in any period of the year for exploring the coast of Sicily and enjoying spectacular excursions on Mount Etna, since it`s only 1 km from the Sicilian eastern main road (ss 114) and 5 km from the exit of the motorway "Giarre". Taormina is a 15 min drive away (15 Km); the beautiful long peebbly beach has a good range of "lidi" in summer( beach clubs offering facilities). The apartment is close the newly built "Porto dell`Etna" ( Etna`s marina )
"We spent very good time in this appartment. No complains about cleanlines, noises and neighbours. The beach is close enough and many shops and market are available in Riposto village not far away from appartment. Cinzia and Nunzio showed the top of the hospitality and sympathy."
"All outstanding. Apartment was excellent and equipped with everything we could need. Minutes from a great beach and right at the foot of Mount Etna. The owner Cinzia could not have been more helpful and went beyond what was expected. Highly recommended."
"The apartment is well equipped, clean and very quiet. From the terrace, it has a lovely view of the surrounding countryside, Etna, and fields of citrus trees. It is located in a summertime beach resort that is mostly empty during the wintertime. The compound itself is gated and secure, but the 2 streets leading into the property are dark and trash-laden. Driving time to the autostrada is longer than the map would indicate.
The owners are kind, trustworthy, very helpful and generous and are always available and willing to help. Would definitely stay there during the spring, summer or fall seasons. We spent a considerable amount of time comparing properties and prices, and this property is an excellent value for the space and amenities provided."
"A clean,secure,[gated community]stratigally located,well furnished apartment.An excellent location from which we explored both the coast and interior of Sicily.One can walk to the beaches or enjoy Mt Etna with a glass of wine. Add to this, hostible owners Cinzia and Nunizio, who were most generous with directions/sights,provided basic housekeeping food items,plus wine and citus fruit we most enjoyed. We felt very comfortable knowing they were in the backround should we need them. We will reccomend this location to our fellow Canadian travellers. Louis & Maxine"

The east coast of Sicily offers a lot of things to do every time of the year,since the climate is one of the most agreable of Europe and every season has its own particular attraction.You can get in insight into history by visiting the sites of Sicily's unparalleled historical legacy.If you love walking this is an ideal place to go:you can walk up Europe's highest active volcano, discover the wonderful landcapes and paths of its Natural Park.For food and wine lovers the east coast of Sicily offers delicious discoveries;you can follow the "Road of Etna's wine"that winds around the flanks of the volcano or taste the fresh genuine local products.For those who love bicyling , there's a beautiful cycle-touring itinerary on the coast right in front of the apartment that goes to the Alcantara river ,next to Giardini-Naxos and Taormina .For golfing there's "Il Picciolo Golf Club"at a 30 min drive:wonderful location , great climate without crowds and high green fees.The Club offers equipment hire and a smoking volcano as a backdrop.In summer don't miss the "Taormina Arte"festival , when the greek theatre comes to life with a season of top flight acts.Besides mount Etna , the other main feature of the area is the beautiful sea where you can take a bath from May to October(some people in Sicily traditionally take the first bath the Monday after Easter).In September there's the traditional grape harvest".
