'La Casetta del Sole' between the 'Etna and the sea. A slice of heaven
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews


  • 5 of 5


Thanks for the warm welcome by Maria Luisa and her father who is so proud of his wonderful garden with more than 20 old oak trees and delicious vegetable. A great swing between two of the trees allows nice views to the sea as well as to the mountains. Sitting on the terrace in the evening after an intensive Strombolian activity we saw the magma running down the Eastern hillside.

La Casetta del sole is a green island in the suburban sprawl of Catania. Centrally located to explore the beautiful Etna Park and all sites on the east coast.

Superbe séjour

  • 5 of 5

Très agréable maison, dotée d'un vaste jardin et d'un potager absolument magnifiques. Vue à la fois sur l'Etna et sur la mer. À distance idéale pour découvrir tout l'est de la Sicile, de Messine à Noto, en passant évidemment par Catane, Syracuse ou Taormina, ce que nous avons fait.

Maria Luisa et ses parents sont adorables, prévenants, toujours disponibles. Location vivement recommandée. Et mille merci pour les cadeaux de bienvenue et de départ.

Arrivederci !

Fantastic week and amazing accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wondeful week in Santa Venerina. A lot of major attractive Sicilian sights are closeby. For instant Taormina, Catania, Noto, Syracusa and ofcourse the impressive Mount Etna. But maybe the best place to be was this wonderful house. A large, beautifully landscaped private and sunny garden, with plenty of trees to find shades and a lovely vegetablegarden. Also a great terrace with a barbecue and with a clear sight on Mount Etna and the sea. The house was very clean and tidy ans you'll find all necessary equipment. Both bedrooms are airconditioned, so the hot Sicilian nights will not keep you out of your sleep. We had a great vacation here! Special thanks to Maria Luisa and her father, who were very, very hospitable and made every effort to make our stay comfortable and unforgettable. Grazie per la tua ospitalità!! Che ci ha dato una grande settimana. Ognuno avrebbe dovuto andare a godere della vostra casa!
