Beautifully maintained and kept by very conscientious and friendly owners who had wonderful tips for where to go. Safe, off-road parking and everything close at hand. We loved Taormina, Stromboli, Etna... Etnaland AquaPark was a big hit with the boys! Will be highly recommending this property to all! Thank you for a wonderful stay to the Grippaldi family.

Pozzillo was a very pleasant village with small beach and harbour, seemed to have few foreign visitors. Enjoyed snorkelling outside the apartment. Note that others also enjoy it too - in July we were certainly not alone especially on a Sunday but it was never a problem! Great location for trips to Taormina, Etna, Syracuse. We did some evening restaurant reservations as recommended tho I think they weren't essential mid week nor if happy to sit 2nd row if it has a view / terrace. Thanks Francesco for very enjoyable first visit to Sicily.
