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.

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.

Amazing Italy Holiday

5 of 5
The Location of the Villa is amazing! The pictures are accurate, the Villa is on a hill overlooking the Aeolian islands. We got to enjoy stunning sunsets every night. It is well equipped and very clean. It's a calm 30 mins walk to Tindari's church and the amazing Milazzo Venus Pool. Also in Milazzo there is a port with the boat connections to go to the Aeolian islands. A great day out! The owners were delightful and helpful with directions and information regarding things to do and place to go. We really enjoyed our Holiday and will definitely book again!
