A group of 7 friends have just got home after a weeks stay at this amazing little house in Trecastagni. The house is very old with loads of character but well equipped for a large(ish) group. The garden with several seating areas and a gorgeous pool and views to die for, is a little oasis. Views of the Church, Mount Etna and the sea were just breathtaking. Trecastagni is a great little place with a few excellent restaurants, handy shops selling all essentials (wine, fresh fish, bread etc). The little bakery across the road sold amazing bread, pastries and more and the ladies who worked there were lovely. In fact the people in the town couldn't be more friendly and helpful, just try out your italian and they will go out of their way to help.
Finally, thanks to Carmello and Alessandra for letting us stay in your beautiful house, we all loved it.
The villa is beautifully furnished, clean and fully equipped. The owners are very friendly and thoughtful. They’ve even provided a telescope so you can see Etna close up. We were lucky to see it erupting whilst we were there. The villa is spacious with lots of separate sitting areas so it never felt crowded even though there were 8 of us. You can even walk up the back garden on to an extinct volcano where you’ll find stunning views of the area. It’s near the airport and Etna, an hour away from Taormina but a couple of hours from Syracuse, Noto and other sights in the south. We had a great stay.
