A spacious villa, full of character but not sat nav friendly.

4 of 5
This is a great villa for visitors wanting something more traditionally Sicilian but with the home comforts of wifi etc (although there is no air-con). We liked it but found it quite cold (in spite of central heating - although we had no access to settings) and tricky to navigate. It's in a village long since absorbed into the suburbs of Catania but still surrounded by fruit groves and wild terraces. I would recommend the place for a family holiday but be prepared to do a lot of driving, Italian style.

Great little detached bungalow in very attractive surroundings with superb views of Etna.

5 of 5
Lovely modern house, well appointed about 2km from centre of Viagrande, which has shops, supermarkets, restaurants etc. Although not a particularly attractive town. There's a centre with big supermarkets 10 mins drive. Owners were very helpful. The house is away from the road in semi rural surroundings, in the middle of the owners vineyard. (They very kindly gave us a bottle of their wine. ) The wifi is a bit hit & miss. It's within striking distance of plenty of attractions - don't miss going up Etna - expensive 63 euros pp, but well worth it. It's also very pleasant to just sit on the terrace or in the garden & relax. We really enjoyed our stay & would definitely recommend it
