Historical country house with an unforgettable ambiance

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. A historic and spacious farm house that had the atmosphere of a much loved family home surrounded by lemon and orange trees. If you are looking for luxury, high specification bathrooms and kitchens and modern furniture it probably isn't for you but if you love a sense of history along with comfortable beds and sofas, views of Etna and the beautiful country side it will suit you well.

You will definitely need a car, but the house is located so that you can easily take day trips to the most important cities on the east coast and the center of the island. There is a very nice swimming pool. We were there in May, but the mosquitoes were insane. Although I heard they go away in June you should come prepared with lots of bug spray.

Gaetano, the key keeper was very nice, attentive and extremely helpful. He always checked to make sure we were ok, and even though he did not speak any English we managed to communicate.

The appliances are tired, but everything worked and the house is well equipped with everything you need to cook and serve your meals. There could have been a little more local information provided, but as the wifi was excellent we managed just fine. All in all a great place for a holiday.

Large Sicilian farm house, rustic but charming

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this house for two weeks over the Christmas holidays. It is the upper floor and a half of a large building that is also attached to working parts of the farm. The caretakers live in one part and are available at any time of the night or day if you have issues. They were very friendly and continually checked in with us to make sure we didn't have problems. There were also other people from the farm who welcomed us and our children which gave us a true Sicilian experience. The house is large and was adequately furnished and equipped. We cooked many meals and enjoyed the authentic atmosphere. The kids were able to run around and play outside without any fear of being too loud or getting hurt. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. However, we were there during the coldest part of the year and the inside of the house was quite cold. There are heaters in each room (to be paid separately but not expensive) so the bedrooms were warm at night. The kitchen and place where we ate had no way to be heated and, if you turned on too many heaters/lights/etc at once, the circuits blew. Additionally, the doors and windows were drafty. I bet this house would be a delight during the spring and fall, and even summer. A little insulation taping and better heating could be used in the winter. If you are looking for a quiet retreat away from the city with plenty of space to spread out and run around, this is your place. It is near the American navy base by Catania and close enough for day trips to Syracusa, Taormina, Caltagirone and the like. Keep in mind the authentic atmosphere means everything is not 100% modern. The wifi was great and there was a pool that is probably open in the summer.
