Walking and Hiking

This scenic region is ideal for exploring on foot. A visit to the hilltop village of Serro is a popular walk from your holiday rental in Villafrance Tirrena or explore the many trails around Mount Etna Regional Park.

Sample Local Cuisine

For a taste of Sicilian cuisine try the aubergine (eggplant) caponata, a stew of tomaotoes, aubergines, capers and olives, often served as an antipasto.

Mount Etna

Nous avons adoré !!!

5 of 5
Nous sommes restés 3 semaines dans cette maison. 3 semaines de détente au calme en profitant d'une vue magnifique sur les iles Eoliennes. La maison est parfaitement adaptée pour une famille de 5 personnes telle que la nôtre. Rien à redire, tout correspondant amplement à nos attentes. La région n'accueille pas un tourisme de masse, les petits commerçants locaux sont charmants et bienveillants. Bref nous avons adorés nos vacances partagées entre le repos, la découverte de la région, les ballades, la mer et les îles. Nous recommandons vivement cette maison et cette région encore préservée.

All around solid experience!!

5 of 5
Overall, my experience was a great one. I had never been to Sicily before this trip. I was looking for a nice adventure. Im pretty easy going, thus im not high maintenance...my girlfriend is similar. We lucked out on this spot though because it certainly exceeded our expectations. Let me tell you why!: 1) The apartment was well equipped and clean 2) The staff was friendly, welcoming and professional 3) Location was nice, whereby providing some opportunities for nice views....ask about the different room choices! 4) Nearby gravel beach was very nice for snorkeling, and situated in a small bay 5) Ever been to Aeolian Islands? No? Get ready for paradise!
