Beautiful view of the sea and the volcano. Great spot to visit the east coast of the sicily. Essential car to visit. Éven if the village offers a few steps a bakery and a super market accessible by foot. Maria gorgona the owner was attentive and caring. ONE Word : EXTRA .see you soon.calogero Morina

The swimming pool is lovely, very big, and there are plenty of pool loungers, but could do with more than one umbrella to provide more shade in the hot Sicilian sun. The views of Mount Etna from the garden were truly beautiful, especially in the evening. We spent a lot of time cooking for 10 people at the house, and so one gripe was that the kitchen could have been better equipped (sharper knives, more chopping boards, blender, something to play music on, is needed) but the bedrooms (with AC and private access), the terrace with large outdoor dining table, and the pool and garden set amongst the lemon groves, were wonderful. The secluded location, once you've found the villa up the lemon groves, is great for excursions out and about. 30mins from the airport, 45mins from Taormina, and some beautiful coastal towns with incredible fresh fish restaurants only 10-15mins drive away (Capamulina and Aci Castello). All in all a really great place to stay, and we all want to say thank you for a lovely trip!
