Mount Etna

We enjoyed the fantastic views from the pool towards Etna during the day time. The pool is lit so we had the added bonus of being able to swim at night. The road up to the villa is narrow but ok after the first few times of driving it. Having said that we never plucked up courage to try it after dark. Dan and Katherine were fantastic - their attention to detail is amazing. thankyou

It's up a narrow 500m dirt road which might be useful to know when deciding what type of car to hire but it does means that it's quiet, peaceful and private. The closest restaurant is the Ristorante Paradise which is at the start of the track and so very close by. The food is great but the quantities are huge and defeated us so make sure you have a good appetite before you go. The villa was larger than we expected and very well equipped. Plenty of crockery, cups, and glasses and a dishwasher to take the chore out of cleaning up. The villa was very clean and well looked after. Emails from the owner were friendly and helpful and the keyholder, Giueseppe, was very helpful in recommending places to go and things to do when we arrived.

The property itself was modern well maintained and very clean (thanks to the lovely Pina!) The walk up from Taormina kept us fit but for those less active there is a regular bus service. There is a great Restaurant only a few minutes walk (almost level!) away. Castelmola is stunning and just a few hundred metres above the apartment with more restaurants and an interesting themed bar! - enjoy!!
