Perfect place,perfect location,perfect people :)

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Le Casa di Bacco 5 days and it was a great experience! First of all, we have been welcomed with homemade wine, delicious pistachio cake, limoncello, marmolades which was a very nice surprise :)

Gabriele and her husband are very charming and friendly people that were always available in case we would need some support.

Moreover, the location is perfect, on one hand very quiet and peaceful and on the other hand close to Catania or Taormina, so great base for one-day trips in Sicily by car.

The house is big enough for 2-4- persons. The garden is very cosy and it is a pleasure to spend evening there.

It is also a very convenient location in case someone would like to visit Etna as the location from which you can get a cable car for Etna is around 20 mins by car.

Overall, we would highly recommend Le Casa di Bacco!

lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this cottage with my husband and 2 young children for 2 weeks, on 1st impressions we thought we were really isolated but actually the location proved ideal for almost all tourist attractions in both Catania and Messina provinces. The cottage itself was clean, tidy and well equipped with everything you need, although the loft area had really low ceiling so definately only for kids, the garden area was immaculate, very beautiful, very peaceful and well looked after, the pool area was clean and tidy but small deck area, only sits 2-3 people comfortably, we were lucky that the other guests prefered the beach! The owners are a lovely family who were very friendly and welcoming, they live on the grounds so are available 24/7 if you have any problems but otherwise leave you in peace. Overall I would highly recommend this cottage if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings, but you definately need a car, however, if you're looking for nightlife go elsewhere!

A great location for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

With 2 small children (2&3 yr) we stayed 1 week in this house with the beautiful garden. It is a great location for several day trips nearby. We enjoyed the garden so much, with the view on the Etna and the sea. The kids loved the tree house, the swing, and the chicken! Gabriela and her family are very hospitable. Thank you again Gabriela, and all the best to you and your family!

Alles wie beschrieben. Gerne wieder.

  • 5 of 5

Die Unterkunft war wie beschrieben. Da wir in der Nebensaison dort waren, hatten wir das Grundstück für uns alleine. Die Vermieter waren sehr nett und haben uns auch zB mit Eiern von den eigenen Hühnern versorgt.

Die Kommunikation war leider nicht wie angegeben auf Englisch möglich, aber mit Händen und Füssen hat sie doch geklappt.

Man ist in ca. 20 Minuten am Meer und in 10 in Zaffarane, von wo aus der Ätne-Nationalpark anfängt. Ein Mietwagen ist sehr empfehlenswert.

Wenn wir wieder Urlaub auf Sizilien zwischen Wandern und Strandurlaub machen möchten, kommen wir wieder.

Danke.

Hübsches Apartment mit wundervollem Garten, sehr familienfreundlich

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind eine 4-köpfige Familie und haben uns in der Villa "Casa die Bacco" sehr wohl gefühlt. Gabriella und Alfio haben uns sehr herzlich mit selbst gemachtem Wein, Marmelade und Zitronen aus dem eigenen Garten empfangen. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und gepflegt. Der Garten ist ein Paradies für Kinder und Ruhesuchende. Es gibt ein tolles Baumhaus zu entdecken, einen Pool, eine Schaukel und genügend Grünfläche zum Toben. Unsere beiden Kinder im Alter von knapp zwei und fünf Jahren haben das sehr genossen. Gabriella und Alfio gaben uns sehr nützliche Tipps in Bezug auf lokales Essen und Aktivitäten entlang der Ostküste. Die Lage ist ideal, um Wanderungen im Regionalpark des Ätnas zu unternehmen und Küstenstädte wie Taormina, Catania etc. zu erkunden. Hierfür ist ein Auto unbedingt empfehlenswert.

Gabriella und Alfio sind ausgesprochen kinder- und gastfreundlich und haben uns mit einem wundervollen Pizzaabend verwöhnt. Im Garten gibt es einen tollen Aufenthaltsbereich zum Kochen, Pizza backen, Grillen und gemütlichem Beisammensein...Wir können die Unterkunft sehr empfehlen und kommen gerne wieder!
