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.

Wir waren anfangs etwas skeptisch, weil die Fotos der Wohnung fast schon zu schön waren. Aber als wir dort ankamen, wurden wir nicht enttäuscht - im Gegenteil! Die Wohnung war der Hammer! Die Küche ist perfekt ausgestattet, der Wohnbereich ist sehr geräumig und die Bäder wunderschön. Alles ist in einem besonderen Stil dekoriert/möbliert, da Toti, der Sohn der Gastfamilie Schreiner ist und alle Möbel selbst gemacht hat! Apropos Gastfamilie: Die Familie war unglaublich aufmerksam und zuvorkommend! Bei der Ankunft war der Kühlschrank und die Küche schon mit einigen typisch sizilianischen Gastgeschenken ausgestattet (eine kleine Geste mit großer Wirkung!). Dies war allerdings längst nicht alles: draußen war ein vielseitiges Gewürzbeet, sowie eine Obstplantage angelegt, an denen man sich bedienen durfte. Toti empfahl uns zwei wirklich gute Restaurants in der Umgebung und reservierte uns in einem sogar einen Platz. Giulia, die Tochter der Familie, organisierte für uns einen Ätnatrip und nahm einen Freund, der Guide ist, mit. Die beiden haben das wirklich klasse gemacht und uns einen sehr guten Eindruck über den Vulkan verschafft! Nochmal vielen Dank für den unglaublichen Service! Da eine Kritik erst dann gut und hilfreich ist, wenn sie auch Verbesserungsvorschläge enthält, möchte ich diese hier hinzufügen mit der Bemerkung, dass es wirklich „Meckern auf hohem Niveau“ ist: Die Schränke in den oberen drei Zimmern sind recht klein und die Dachschrägen sind nicht optimal. Die zwei Zimmer im Untergeschoss sind nicht direkt mit dem Haus verbunden, sie sind nicht so hell wie die anderen drei Zimmer und der WLAN-Empfang reicht nicht bis dort. Der Fernseher im Wohnzimmer empfängt keine internationalen Sender (dafür hat er Netflix!). Das ist auch schon alles was man an der Wohnung „aussetzen“ könnte. Wir empfehlen jedem potentiellen Mieter, der im Sommer Sizilien besuchen möchte diese Ferienwohnung, weil sie durch Lage von fast 1000 Metern über dem Meer circa 5 °C kühler als der Rest der Insel ist. Es war eine wirklich tolle, unkomplizierte und wunderschöne Zeit bei euch und wir kommen gerne wieder! Nochmal vielen Dank für alles!

We have had a wonderful stay in the old winery in Trescastagni. Large nice house, with plenty of space. Lovely with a well-equipped kitchen, cozy rooms and a beautiful courtyard. It's perfect with the private parking, so you do not have to worry about the car at night. We had many good tours around the area of the city, both to Etna, Taomina and Naxos. We were on a long trip to "Villa romana del casale", which we would highly recommend. We would also recommend a visit to Benanti Winery, where we got an outstanding experience. Trecastagni is a lovely place and we had wonderful weather, with sun and 20 - 24 degrees every day throughout the week. This is a place you would like to come back to and which we can highly recommend.
