Wonderful Quiet Home Close to Etna

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as advertised. It’s large and set up as a lock-off from Giuseppe’s home. Just a few minutes drive from the main highway, we used this as a home base to explore the east coast of Sicily. We were here in early spring and weather was hit and miss. We still managed to get to the base of Etna, and had one day where we could see Etna with crystal blue skies from the upper terrace of the apartment on one side and the sea on the other. There were great restaurant options nearby, walking distance. We found TripAdvisor recommendations to be accurate. The setting is beautiful and Giuseppe was very helpful and great to work with. Highly recommended. Bedrooms are set up as one very large room on the upper level with bathroom below.

Owner's Response: It is with great pleasure that we have hosted William and His Family. People very discrete and not at all intrusive. They left the apartment clean and tidy. Unfortunately the weather was inclement with them: rain, rain and rain. We are sorry. Thank you.

Very lovely property with lots of fruit trees. Very clean, comfortable and well appointed space.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay and our hosts were extremely gracious and kind. They greeted us with a fresh bowl of fruits on arrival and even, managed to help us get our rental car fixed when we encountered a flat tire. That evening, they came to our door with fresh desserts. Such nice people and really lovely space they created for us and our two children aged, 5 and 7.

Great location with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Very well presented, spacious & clean accommodation. Guiseppe and Raffaella were fantastic hosts and went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant without being intrusive. The apartment has great sea views from the rear and wonderful views of Etna from the upper terrace accessible from the bedroom. The villa lived up to its name as the surrounding orange trees perfumed the air. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Une excellente location pour un séjour sensationnel

  • 5 of 5

Notre séjour à Profumo di Zagara a été excellent sur tous les points :

- Tout d'abord un accueil chaleureux et généreux, avec des hôtes sympathiques, attentionnés et discrets (et des surprises culinaires et gustatives presque tous les jours). Encore merci à eux pour leur attention et leur dévouement.

- ensuite le cadre : un jardin de mandariniers tout autour de la propriété, mais une terrasse avec une très grande pelouse, des oliviers et des plantes variées (lavandes, romarin, oiseaux de paradis, lantana, etc.). Bref, plein de parfums et de couleurs attrayants.

- puis les paysages : l'Etna est là, et bien là, dominant le nord-ouest de toute sa hauteur et de ses sommets enneigés (en novembre). La mer ionienne quant à elle brille à l'est. Depuis la terrasse supérieure de la maison, en tournant sur soi, on a ainsi un magnifique panorama sur les jardins d'agrumes, la mer et le volcan !

- enfin, la maison. Elle est très grande et lumineuse. Une partie est habitée par les hôtes mais il n'y a aucun problème de voisinage. La partie réservée aux visiteurs est impeccable, sur un rez-de-chaussée, avec accès au jardin, et un étage, avec accès à la grande terrasse supérieure. Il y a aussi un garage fermé en sous-sol. L'étage peut accueillir 4 adultes ou enfants et un petit enfant. La cuisine est (véritablement) bien équipée avec tout pour bien cuisiner. La salle de bain est très spacieuse.

Pour résumer, nous avons passé un excellent séjour (de 8 jours) au mois de novembre et nous recommandons cette location à tous les voyageurs qui souhaitent du calme et une sensation de tranquilité au milieu des agrumes, tout en restant à portée des plus beaux sites de la Sicile orientale : l'Etna, Catane, Taormina, Syracuse, Pantalica, et tous les autres sites archéologiques, historiques ou naturels.

Car: recommended

We are in the middle of the Ionian coast and due to its proximity to the highway of Giarre is easily accessible anywhere. Very close to Etna and Taormina, we are also surrounded by vineyards and wineries that produce the best wines of Etna.

For lovers of history, culture, architecture and baroque, do not miss the visits of Catania, Siracusa, Noto, Ragusa and Piazza Armerina with its wonderful mosaics.

Shopping centers with the best brands in outlet.

Refined and prestigious typical Sicilian ceramics in Caltagirone.

And do not forget the delicious and tasty delights of gastronomy and Sicilian pastries.
