The house gave us space enought, beutiful views, funcional rooms, large garden and nice possibilities for cooking. We were always touring around in different places on the East Coast and Etna by our car. The house gave us a perfect base. Thank you Francesca and Dino for guiding, help and all...

It was steeped with history and carachter and is absolutely beautiful and stunning. We were 9 adults and 3 small children and Lillana had no trouble accommodating us. There are 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms so enough space to move around. You can see views of mount etna and we saw the volcano erupt and you can see lava flowing down from the rooftop of the castle. On the other side you can see views of the Ionian Sea and have breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea. The pictures of the pool do not do justice to the actual size. The pool was much larger than we expected and probably 15-20metres with a diving board and a deep end. The pool was highlight for the children and they never wanted to leave. We had a really delightful stay and Liliana was very helpful throughout welcoming us with chocolate cake and a few other essentials like milk, toilet paper etc. She also helped with best tourist locations and sight seeing. I would definitely recommend this property it is so beautiful and the views were amazing.i had no problems booking and paying through owners direct and this was my first time. Would definitely book again. Thank you for a delightful stay. Junaid
