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.

                                      A beautiful place to stay

                                      4 of 5
                                      I stayed at this property during the first week of September 2014 with my two adult children. The house is charming and built of lava stone. The interior is rustic and spacious with many preserved features such as parts of the old wine press. The main bedroom is like a giant hotel suite. The other beds are distributed throughout the house. The photos on this website are accurate so believe what they show. When it is really hot outside the coolness of the house is greatly appreciated.The surrounding orchards are great for early morning walks and quiet reflection. I can't report about eating out because we always cooked at home. Use the large outdoor wood-fired barbecue. We spent half our time just chilling around the house and grounds with day trips to Catania, Taomina and just down the hill to the beach at Cottone (25minutes drive). The owner of the property is very friendly, and extremely helpful. We all loved it and would recommend it to anyone else

                                      "We had a fantastic two week holiday in Milo. The chalet is lovely and equipped with everything you need. The garden is absolutely beautiful and huge - the pictures do not do it justice! You could not ask for a more friendly or helpful owner either - he is full of interesting information and tips and on hand for everything you might need. This was one of the best holidays we have had in recent years."
