Good property for a larger group

4 of 5
The property was well prepared for us on arrival and the two people that met us were very helpful. They left us a bottle of wine and even recommended somewhere to go out for New Years Eve. We were two families - 4 adults, 5 children - so the size of the villa was just about right. Everyone had a bed, and the smallest was on a fold out sofa bed. Major plus points were the pool and the basement level games room with a pool table and pinball machine. The kitchen was also large, but we struggled to get 9 people around the table. It was also a little under equipped if you wanted to cook at home, but a relatively minor point. Spectacular views of Etna every morning were certainly uplifting for the soul, and we were lucky with the weather for the time of year (28 Dec to 4 Jan) with highs of 17 deg and lots of dry weather and sun. The only downsides for the adults were that the beds were in need of an upgrade - new mattresses would sort this easily. Overall, loved the place and the location and can recommend it with a clear conscience.

Lovely property in rural setting

4 of 5
Two lovely weeks spent in Dietroserra. The delightful owners live close-by and could not have been more attentive and helpful. Daughter-in-law, Maria, was ever on hand to provide English translation when needed. We felt very welcome. The website photos accurately depict the property and its rural setting. Tall trees overhang the property’s terrace, providing welcome respite in summer, but in late autumn when the sun is lower, the terrace is mostly in shade, making the interior of the property a little dark. Some extra, directional lighting would be useful in the kitchen/sitting area at times. For sun-lovers, a separate terrace provides beautiful views across the hillsides to Mount Etna; it’s shared with the other property, but comfortably large. For shade-lovers a lush, grassy area runs between Dietroserra and the shared terrace. Chairs, tables, sunbeds & cushions are plentiful. The swimming pool is of the tank variety which you climb up into, so not at ground level. It’s perfectly serviceable, but bear in mind with younger children. Furnished traditionally, the property is spotlessly clean, well maintained and well equipped, with lots of little extras thoughtfully provided (dish cloth; pan-scourer; washing-up liquid; initial roll of paper towel; liquid soap; shampoo; shower gel; loo paper; washing machine liquid). On arrival, we were treated to a bottle of wine from the vineyard and next day a delicious homemade cake arrived (thank you again, Signora Gae!). We also found fruit juice & water in the fridge, plus various condiments, olive oil, vinegar. When buying food, be aware there’s no microwave. We ate in often and found the hob and oven perfectly efficient. Toaster, kettle and filter coffee machine are also provided. Barking dogs didn’t worry us, but mosquitoes abound in October. Indoors was kept mozzie-free by using buzz plugs 24/7 (we took our own, but several were provided - bring tablets). Sufferers will want to apply lots of repellent or cover up when outside in the evenings. The location is good for exploring the east coast and volcano area. Viagrande is just 15 mins’ walk away, but note the route is not pedestrian-friendly. With no pavements until you reach town, you’re confined to the hard shoulder, which disappears in places. If you’re visible with light clothing/torch, most drivers will accommodate you, but it’s not for the faint-hearted. In all, those seeking peace and relaxation in a rural setting will love it!

Wonderful

5 of 5
Nicely situated in the Alcantara Valley about 10-15 minutes from the coast. It's up a narrow 500m dirt road which might be useful to know when deciding what type of car to hire but it does means that it's quiet, peaceful and private. The closest restaurant is the Ristorante Paradise which is at the start of the track and so very close by. The food is great but the quantities are huge and defeated us so make sure you have a good appetite before you go. The villa was larger than we expected and very well equipped. Plenty of crockery, cups, and glasses and a dishwasher to take the chore out of cleaning up. The villa was very clean and well looked after. Emails from the owner were friendly and helpful and the keyholder, Giueseppe, was very helpful in recommending places to go and things to do when we arrived.
