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.

We visited all of these - Syracuse is highly recommended - and also made several trips to the closest town Acireale (10 minutes away) which is lovely and quite unspoilt by tourism. We also enjoyed both swimming and dining in some of the extremely attractive local fishing ports along the riviera de Cyclops. The villa itself is very much a family home, and has clearly been furnished and kitted out by people who have loved living there. The gardens are secluded and very pretty, and there are vantage points for every time of day. Breakfast al fresco with Etna smoking gently in the background was a particular treat. So was relaxing by the pool. Because of this it was tempting to stay put despite all the attractions around. We loved our stay and will certainly consider returning!

I would like say a special thanks to Mario and Ketty the owners, we had major problems finding our way to the villa our mistake and ended up god knows where but Mario came looking for us and he took us to the villa. Our son is going to miss the lovely pool as he used it every day from early morning and we will miss the relaxing atmosphere and tranquil villa and the area. Overall a special holiday with special accommodation and wonderful helpful owners who where only a text away if needed.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    The house was charming and had everything we needed to make our stay pleasant and relaxed. We were met by Roberto and his family who helped us find our way from within Sant"Alfio. We were late arriving due to having to wait a long time for car hire at Catania airport and then getting lost. (Our advice would be to use Google maps or sat nav to find the right road out of Catania at night...). Roberto kindly provided us with some basic groceries as it was too late to shop or eat out. His son was on hand to help translate as we have few Italian words. The houses aspect, at the apex of two roads, means that you enter the house up a few steps but on this "ground floor" you are in the main considerably elevated from the road whilst the bedroom, although downstairs, is at street level on one side of the house. Their house has a large homely living room with Bathroom and Kitchen attached and access to patio and garden. Downstairs is the bedroom. The bathroom had a good shower with plenty of towels, soap etc. The kitchen had almost everything you might need to cook your own meals. Four ring hob and oven and big capacious fridge. The washing machine is also located here. The patio with vine covered arbour is where we spent quite a lot of time, eating, drinking, reading and generally relaxing. There is a wonderful view of Mount Etna. The living room has a big table, a good place to spread out maps if planning a journey. There is satellite TV with all the channels you could probably ever want, if watching TV on holiday is your thing. The bedroom has a large comfortable bed and is lovely and cool, great to take a siesta in the afternoon. We really enjoyed our stay here and relished its relatively isolated location for the quiet and relaxation. We think you need a car and there is safe parking on the road outside. It was a good place to tour around the local area including driving up to Etna. Within a short walking distance, at the ancient chestnut tree, there are three places to eat and a cafe with wifi. All in all a relaxing time which we both enjoyed immensely and we would recommend this property highly.
