We were surrounded by wildlife, the ocean, Mt Etna, and gorgeous weather. We were away from tourism & internet and it was a very relaxing holiday. The owners of the home are friendly & accomodating. They made many good recommendations, and even drove us around to point out a few of the local spots to know.

It is also very convenient for exploring the many sights in the east of Sicily and around Etna. The provision of air conditioning in the main bedroom is a great benefit for the hot summer nights.
