Make a holiday apartment in Milo your home away from home

HomeAway has a range of holiday homes and apartments in Milo. Here, on high ground, you’ll be halfway between the legendary Mount Etna and the beautiful Ionian Coast. The resort is nestled in pristine nature, with volcanic features and unspoiled forest waiting to be explored. Holiday homes in Milo are charming stone buildings, rustic in appearance but furnished with modern appliances and conveniences. Many Milo apartments offer internet access, and provide gardens so you can enjoy al fresco meals in a gorgeous setting.

Things to do

-Beaches. The resort of Milo is about ten kilometres from the Ionian coast, where you’ll discover a variety of sand and pebble beaches. For an attractive pebble beach and clear waters you could make the short trip to the seaside village of Sant’anna, which offers sunbeds and parasols, and like the entire coast here has impressive views of Mount Etna.

-Etna. You can’t miss this world-famous landmark, which dominates the skyline to the west and stands at a height of more than 3,000 metres. In the winter months you can go skiing on the slopes, and throughout the year you can seem evidence of eruptions, whether it’s solidified lava flows or ominous smoke billowing from its summit. Fit and daring types can book guided hikes to the summit.

-Outdoor recreation. Sitting right next to the natural park surrounding Etna, there are all kinds of opportunities to get out and enjoy the scenery without trying to tackle the volcano. There are lots of looped trails that can be picked up close by, offering paths through dense woodland and over remarkable volcanic terrain that you could navigate on foot, by bike or even on horseback.

-Cuisine. Located closer to North Africa than many parts of mainland Italy, Sicily has a distinct cuisine, with chilli featuring in many recipes. The sea has a big influence too, with lots of shellfish on the menu, and dishes involving octopus, anchovies, tuna, mullet and scallop. Sicily is also known for its pastries, with fillings of pistachio, chocolate, ricotta and candied fruit.

-Catania. This is a city where preserved Roman heritage rubs shoulders with lavish baroque buildings. Such is the profusion of baroque architecture in Catania that it has gained UNESCO status. Many of these structures, including the lavish cathedral, are religious buildings dating to the 1700s. Ancient remnants to seek out include the Roman Amphitheatre, and the Greek-Roman Theatre from the 300s.

Weather in Milo

If you arrive at a Milo holiday home between May and November then you’ll encounter warm weather. Conditions are especially hot in mid-summer, with temperatures often soaring above 30 degrees during the day, and not slipping below 20 degrees at night. Rainfall is uncommon in summer, but the other seasons do see occasional rainfall. Temperatures in spring and autumn are pleasant, with some warm days. Winters are very mild – even in January daily highs can get close to 20 degrees, although the skies tend to be more overcast from October to January.

Travel to Milo

Milo is just over half an hour north of Catania-Fontanarossa Airport (CTA), which can be reached with a choice of airlines offering both seasonal and year-round flights from the UK. By road you can take the A-18 from the airport, and turn off onto the SP4i at Luminaria. If you’re travelling from mainland Italy then there are plenty of options – you catch a ferry straight to Catania from Genoa or Naples, and there’s also a shorter crossing between Reggio Calabria and Messina in the northeast of the island.

Plenty of storage space, great bathroom, useful kitchen. Fantastic position right above the beach with great views and a lovely little balcony to sit on when sunny. Locally, unfortunately there was not much open as it was out of season but there is a cable car which goes up to Taormina which was very useful if difficult to find. Would recommend this place to stay.

When you look at pictures of your vacation destination you can't allways be sure if it really looks as shown. But this time it was even better then on the pictures - the villa is elegant, spacious, comfortable, very well equipped and in a beautiful setting. There are two double bedrooms, and a big salon with a seaview. The kitchen is small but fully equiped - there was even a bottle of wine waiting for us! The outside space is fantastic, with lovely views. Due to the weather (it was rather cold) we did not use the terrace in front of the villa but it must be a great experience during the warmer months. Aci Trezza was quite quiet at this time of year, but there were plenty of restaurants to choose from. And it is a good base for longer trips (Catania, Etna, Taormina etc.). All in all we enjoyed a very relaxing stay and will certainly be returning.

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.
