Mount Etna

Mount Etna is Europe's greatest natural wonder and is Sicily's highest mountain, standing 3350 metres (10,990 feet) above sea level.

It's got everything you need. Including a beautiful swimming pool and the beautiful view and sunsets. Marco was very helpful and so was his uncle as they helped us stay there at a very short notice. We informed about the villa in the morning and were already welcome the same day. Thank you very much!

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.
