Tolles Haus in sehr guter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit im Haus von Andrea. Die Lage ist perfekt, alles was man braucht ist zu Fuß erreichbar. Das Haus selbst ist mit (fast) allem Nötigen ausgestattet und mit kleinen liebevoll künstlerischen Details versehen. Besonders toll ist die Dachterrasse mit Blick auf den Etna oder aufs Meer. Andrea ist ein prima Gastgeber und hat uns mit guten Reisetipps versorgt. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Der nahe gelegenen Steinstrand ist besonders für Kinder perfekt, da er geschützt liegt und man beim Schnorcheln so Einiges entdecken kann. Auch nahe gelegene Strände in Giarre sind empfehlenswert. Für einen längeren Aufenthalt sehr zu empfehlen, da viele sehenswerte Orte relativ schnell zu erreichen sind. Die vorhandenen Räder sind optimal um morgens am Meer Fisch zu kaufen, zur Pasticeria oder nach Torre Arcicraft zu radeln. Alles in allem das perfekte Haus für einen Aufenthalt in einem entspannten Städtchen.

Beautiful spacious house with large roof terrace and great views of Mt. Etna.

  • 5 of 5

This house is an absolute gem! We did not bother to hire a car because it is so easy to get to by public transport. We took the shuttle bus from Catania airport to Catania railway station, 15 minutes, 4 euros. Then a comfortable half hour train ride to Riposto, 3 euros. The house is a short walk from the station but the very helpful owner Andrea picked us up at the station.The house has a well equipped kitchen ( but without a kettle) .Andrea said he would rectify this! The sitting room and the bedroom are large and remain cool even without the air con on.It was hot but we just put the air con on at night.The huge sun terrace is the jewel in the crown of this house! It has enough chairs tables and sofas to throw a large party. Andrea was continually sending us whatsapps advising us what was on in the town ( he lives nearby). Within 5 minutes walk there are marvellous fruit and veg shops and a supermarket. Within 10 minutes walk there are several great restaurants, very reasonably priced. Bella Napoli on Corso Italia, Trattoria Marricriu on Via Antonio Gramsci, were great as was Le Botti On Via Cristofo Colombo down in the port (we got a table right on the waters edge)

We also loved the beach 5 minutes walk away.It's a pebble beach enclosed on 3 sides by a rock wall so we were swimming and snorkelling in what was really a giant rock pool 500 metres long and 100 metres wide, full of marine life ,fish ,crabs etc.Stunning! We also took the Circumetnea train ,5 minutes walk to the station. You get a 3 hour train trip round Mt Etna. for 6 euros! A half hour train or bus ride up the coast would take you to Taormina with its Roman Amphitheatre.

This was one of the best Owners Direct properties we have stayed in. Book it . You won't regret it !

Casetta graziosa, pulita, in un posto strategico vicino al mare e all' Etna. Consiglialtissima.

  • 5 of 5

La casa di Andrea è in un posto molto comodo in centro a Riposto, graziosa, completa di tutto quello che serve è con una terrazza che ha una vista strepitosa sull' Etna. Siamo stati benissimo ed Andrea è stato un ospite cortese e premuroso che ci ha dato tutte le informazioni di cui avevamo bisogno.

Vicina all' Etna... a Taormina. ... Acireale si trova in un posto strategico.

Assolutamente consigliata. Grazie ancora per la bella vacanza !!!!

Tolle Ferienwohnung mit viel Platz und schöner Dachterrasse mit Blick auf den Ätna.

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung war sehr gut und sehr geräumig, besonders haben uns die kurzen strecken zu den vielen Supermärkten und Cafés gefallen. Außerdem konnten wir für kleines Geld die gesamte Ostküste Siziliens besuchen, da der örtliche Bahnhof gut zu Fuß zu erreichen war. Daher wird auch neben Familien auch was für Abenteurer geboten :-)

eine kleine Bemerkung zur Ausstattung der Küche. Wer gerne in Italien abends auf der Dachterrasse gemütlich einen Wein trinken möchte, dem ist zu empfehlen einen Korkenzieher mitzubringen, den gibt es dort nämlich nicht. Außerdem hätte es ein zweites Geschirrtuch auch getan. Das sind aber alles nur Kleinigkeiten. Die Leite in dem Dorf und in den von uns besuchten Orten (Catania, Syrakus, Messina, Gardini-Naxos, Taormina, Giarre etc.) sind alle sehr freundlich und Hilfsbereit.

Durch die oben genannten Punkte sprechen wir eine klare Empfehlung mit 5 Sternen für diese Ferienwohnung aus.


Der Vermieter bietet zudem einen Abholservice vom Flughafen an, selbst wenn es sehr spät wird, denn nachts, wenn keine Busse und Züge mehr Fahren, kostet die Taxifahrt von Catania in den 60 Kilometer entfernten Ort Riposto sonst 100 Euro.

Bonne localisation et très bon rapport qualité /prix

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné chez Andrea pendant 3 semaines. De mon point de vue, la maison mériterait un coup de moderne il faudrait trouver une solution pour l évacuation de l'eau de l air conditionné.

À part ça, la maison est bien situé à proximité de la côte. Par contre pour la plage, il est préférable de faire 5 minutes de voitures vers le nord...les plages sont plus belles.

Maison idéale pour visite de l'Etna et Taormina. Andrea est très sympa et disponible. Je recommande
