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.

                                                              The perfect italian experience!!

                                                              We are a family of 4, with a 5 and a 9 years old. We were looking for a place with plenty of space for the kids to play and run freely without bothering anyone, a place with a view and a place where we could just relax listening to just the sounds of nature. Ernesto's house had all that and more! It was just perfect! And beautiful since we got there in time to see all the cherry trees in full bloom. The house itself is very comfortable and my husband enjoyed very much getting in touch with his inner manhood via lightening the fire every night, thought the house was warm enough without it. We made barbecues and breakfasted looking at the sea.There is wi-fi, so the kids were also entertained in between our trips around the east side of Sicily (the west coast is too far away for day trips) and after exploring the different paths that run around the house itself. Mount Etna was practically just behind us and Ernesto gave us some tips to save up on expensive pre-arranged tours up there. He also provided a feast of locally produced tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, olives and wine on our first day, which was just great. We couldn't recommend the place enough. It truly is an Italian experience, far from other tourists and boring hotels with overcrowed pools. Even the (very) bumpy and narrow road that takes you to the house was quite an experience - just don't hire a big car!

                                                              I stayed with my family (and a few extras!) for a week in August 2015. Villa was lovely, great setting, and generally good facilities. There was a problem with the Dishwasher and Boiler whilst we were there, but Francesco and Ninia were very attentive and were round within the hour to help sort the problems out. We were a large group, and the villa suited us perfectly as we were all able to spread out and not get under each others feet! Zafferana is only a 5 minute drive and offers lovely restaurants and shops. Would definately recommend!

                                                              Dear Sabrina, Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely villa. We really enjoyed ourselves and you made us feel very welcome. We particularly appreciated your delicious tomatoes and aubergines. Please accept our best wishes for the future and your business. Warm regards, Ursula
