Amazing property with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

The drive to the property lead us in the mountains into Serro, a 100 soul village, with narrow roads and superfriendly villagers. As we had to hire a minibus, the roads and parking could be a bit of a challenge.

The property itself looks and feels brand new, has lots of character and a very spacious outdoors with the most spectacular views over the hills and to the sea and the Aeolian Islands. We are a family of 7 and we managed to all find a spleeping place although the 2 connected properties are for 6 people only. Our children shared beds and one of them slept on the sofa cushions on the floor. The best part of the property is the wonderful, massive pool which we enjoyed daily, even sometimes at night. Deep enough to dive and swim proper lenghts which was fabulous. The property was being cleaned and bedsheets and towels changed after a few days during our stay.

Our hosts, Lino and Wilma, are a very friendly, warm and helpful couple whom we regarded like family. Lino took us to the nearby Pizzeria twice and to the butcher down in town and gave us lots of advice. He also showed us the wonderful Oil Museum in his property next door. We will remember him and his dear wife always with affection and hope to go back again in future.

Serro is a pleasant place to spend a holiday and is close to Milazzo, Messina, Taormina, Etna and Catania airport.

Grazie mille Lino e Wilma della Sua ospitalita e speriamo di venire un altra volta!

vista mozzafiato, vacanza in paradiso!

  • 5 of 5

Sicilia, Serro (ME) AGOSTO 2016

Serro è un posto incantevole, a metà strada tra Messina e Milazzo, incastonato su di una collina a 300 mt sul mare. Ottima posizione per raggiungere le Eolie, per gite nel parco Naturale dei Nebrodi, escursione sull'Etna.

La proprietà è posizionata strategicamente, dominando le colline circostanti e godendo di una vista mozzafiato sulle Isole Eolie. Nonostante il caldo, tipico della Sicilia, una fresca brezza spira tutto il giorno. Non abbiamo mai usato l'aria condizionata!

La struttura è nuovissima, arredata con gusto ed eleganza, confortevole e pulita. Noi eravamo in sei ed abbiamo affittato sia Casa Azzurra che Piccionaia Guest House. Le due case sono autonome ma all'occorrenza comunicanti.

Ogni angolo è una meraviglia: il giardino curato ed ordinato è stato progettato per regalare scorci suggestivi.

La piscina è stupenda sia per tuffi e belle nuotate ma anche per rilassarsi su comodi lettini: il proprietario fornisce teli ed accappatoi!

Ma il vero tema è l'ospitalità dei proprietari! Lino e Vilma ci hanno accolti come amici di vecchia data. Ci hanno letteralmente viziati e colmati di premure. Sono disponibili e pazienti, attenti e scupolosi, molto simpatici ed affettuosi.

Abbiamo trovato più di quanto ci aspettassimo, è stata una sorpresa continua.

Lino, non vedo l'ora di tornare!
