Things to do

-Mount Etna. Zafferana Etnea is practically in the shadow of the legendary Mount Etna, and the natural park protecting this famed landmark could hardly be closer. It’s an active volcano, standing at over 3,320 metres. You can get the best views by taking an off-road vehicle tour, enjoying sumptuous views and seeing former lava rivers from past eruptions.

-Beaches. This portion of Sicily’s east coast tends to have dark pebble beaches that are well tended and offer various activities and services - and of course feature the one-of-a-king backdrop that is Mount Etna. Praiola is one of the closest, and framed by steep wooded hills.

-Catania. Taking a holiday in Zafferana Etnea you could make the short trip south to see this attractive city. The historic part is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its profusion of baroque architecture. Catania’s cathedral dates to Norman times, and no visit is complete without seeing the unique Elephant Fountain in Piazza del Duomo.

-Aci Castello. Even closer is this local coastal town, which has an imposing Norman castle dating to 1076. The structure is mostly intact stands high on a rocky promontory created by ancient lava flows, and looks out over the sea. It now houses a museum detailing the natural and cultural history of the town.

-Food and drink. On the east coast of Sicily you’ll get great seafood and fish thanks to the many fishing villages dotted along seafront. Inland villages are known for their mushrooms, cheeses and cured sausages. The gelato is also fantastic – Sicilians often have served with brioche.

Weather in Zafferana Etnea

Sicily gets a climate that is exactly what you would expect from the Mediterranean region. Precipitation is rather scarce all-year-round, occurring only late in the summer and during the short winter months. If you visit a Zafferana Etnea holiday home in summer then you’ll very likely enjoy warm conditions, with highs in the 30s in July and August, but also mercifully low humidity. For the remainder of the year, from October to April, daily highs drop gradually to the low-teens in January, before rising sharply again in Spring.

We were made very welcome after a long flight delay and Katy met us just off the motorway to guide us to the villa - we would never have found it by ourselves! Be prepared for a bumpy access road. The villa had everything we needed, lots of good towels and smaller items such as liquid soap in kitchen and bathrooms which was very nice. It was spacious and spotless throughout the villa, the pool was just the right size and the grounds well kept. It was lovely eating at the outside table with the views of the sea and Mount Etna. There was one issue which gave some minor problems; the house next door had dogs which barked a lot, including sometimes in the night. This seemed to set dogs barking at other locations and it did get annoying occasionally. However that is clearly something that Mario and Katy could do nothing about. Overall we had a lovely stay, the villa is situated well to go sightseeing, facilities are good and the grounds and pool area offer a very comfortable option to just stay at the villa and relax.

Weniger gefallen hat uns der schlechte Zustand der Zufahrtsstrasse und die vielen, vielen Hunde auf diesem Weg, als Fussweg darum nicht empfehlenswert! Wir haben darum immer das Auto benützt.
