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.

Each bedroom has air conditioning. Wifi was excellent throughtout the accommodation. The accommodation was very well equipped and well maintained. The owner is close at hand and very helpful without being intrusive. The location is ideal for exploring the east coast of Sicily, easily accessible from Catania Airport (about 40mins by car). Mount Etna can be approached by car from the north or side side and both can be achieved in one day from this location. The local town, Zafferana has a wonderful community spirit. The main street is closed to traffic each evening and the entire community seem to gather in the large square to eat and chat in the cool of the evening. It was not overly touristy and we felt privileged to experience a genuine flavor of Sicilian community. The accommodation photos on the home page don't do justice to the accommodation. It does have a rustic feel, is very spacious, clean and has excellent facilities. The views of Etna and the coast from the wrap around balcony are very impressive. We felt that the accommodation; owner's hospitality; facilities; location provided fantastic value for money and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

They greeted us with a fresh bowl of fruits on arrival and even, managed to help us get our rental car fixed when we encountered a flat tire. That evening, they came to our door with fresh desserts. Such nice people and really lovely space they created for us and our two children aged, 5 and 7.

The villa was very clean and spacious. Hannique was on hand to advise us of local amenities, and when we returned one day to find we had no water, she soon sorted the problem. The villa is located in a quiet rural setting, which provided a good base for exploring the eastern region of Sicily. We particularly enjoyed the drive up Mt Etna and visiting Taormina and Ragusa.
