Sicily is the biggest island, situated in the Mediterranean Sea. By its strategic location, between the Street of Gibraltar and the Middle East, Sicily was an attraction for various nations. There are still evidence visible from that time, like the Greek temple among others Agrigento, the Roman villa in Piazza Armerina, the Arabic springs and the Normandy cathedrals among others, Palermo.
The landscape of Sicily consist namely of mountains and hills. In the north of the island, lies the famous mountain chains: Peloritani, Nebrodi and Madonie which stretches from the east to the west side of the island. In the northeast lies the biggest (approx. 3300m high) and most active volcano of Europe, the Etna.
The Etna is also called "Mongibello" (beautiful mountain). The Sicilians have much respect for this volcano and a famous expression here is: It takes lives, but it gives life as well (Lava ensures for a fertile ground). The coasts in the northeast of Sicily are partly flat and partly steep, which gives an excellent variation in the landscape. The south against that is preponderant flat and in combination with the sun, this gives it a pitcuresque planes.

Assets elegant, comfortable and well-furnished house, nice pool with great view on the surroundings, great terraces, charming path to the house bordered of orange and lemon trees.
Drawbacks House hard to find at first because very poorly signposted, rather noisy evenings and nights (lots of stray dogs barking around), poor and unreliable internet connection, high electricity expenses.
De ligging was werkelijk prachtig maar het huis en het zwembad waren niet schoon. We hebben bij aankomst eerst zelf het hele huis schoon gemaakt. Het zwembadwater was troebel en er lag allemaal alg op de bodem van het zwembad. Dit was toch een zware tegenvaller omdat het huis op een prachtige locatie ligt. Verder hebben we een prachtige vakantie gehad.
