A wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Iolanda for 6 nights. The owners (Rosario & Mariella) greeted us at the apartment @ 22:00 and spent time to show us where everything was in the apartment and how all the various equipment, etc. worked. They had even bought milk, water, bread, fruit, etc. for us - a lovely touch!

The apartment was very clean and had more than enough room for the 3 of us. The air conditioning was welcome as the weather was very warm for us.

The apartment is 1 of 6 in a small block and situated on the first floor approx. 100 metres from the sea. Catania city is approx. 20 miles away and the apartment is easy to find by car.

I would recommend Casa Iolanda as a wonderful base to explore Sicily. Rosario & Mariella were very attentive and happy to answer any questions we had during our stay. Grazie!

Perfetta

  • 5 of 5

Casa accogliente e pulita. Facile da raggiungere. Le camere sono spaziose e adatte ad ogni esigenza. In 5 persone non abbiamo avuto problemi di spazio nella sistemazione. I due bagni erano attrezzati e ben tenuti. L'accoglienza é stata ottima ed al nostro arrivo abbiamo trovato i letti fatti e qualche goloso pensiero nel frigo.

Very pleasant stay by the sea

  • 5 of 5

Fancying a change of the usual cold and rainy Xmas break in Scotland, this year we opted for a two weeks Sicilian one and the weather wasn’t disappointing. We arrived to Catania airport just before Xmas and by a rented car easily reached Riposto, a small fishing village on the coast not far from Taormina and only 30 mins driving from the volcano Etna.

At our arrival we were welcomed by the friendly and helpful flat owners who showed us around and gave us some tips on the local amenities (such as bakery, butcher, fishmonger, patisserie, bar and supermarket) and attractions.

The flat benefits from a secured car park which we mainly used at night. Inside it was spotlessly clean and carefully maintained. It was also well equipped with everything you need to make you feel at home from bed linen, pots, the gas heating system and the washing machine just to mention a few or even some fresh fruit and some breakfast essentials inside the cabinets. The rooms are airy and bright and you can enjoy some fantastic views of the sea or the volcano from the two opposite balconies.

The location was perfect for exploring the surrounding areas. Some main historic city and attractions such as Catania, Siracusa or the Valley of the temples in Agrigento can be easily reached by a short driving. Or if you just want to walk around the town you can stroll along the sea promenade or find some traditional restaurants and shops in the city centre.

Our New Year’s Eve at one of the nearby restaurant was beyond expectations and we were really impressed by the intense and energetic Sicilian style which includes plenty of food and loads of fireworks 

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to anyone. We will absolutely be re-booking in future and why not, for a summer break!
