About the property

Ideal place for family holidays

Our two bedroom house is the perfect place for a relaxing seaside holiday. The house is on two floors. Both bedrooms are upstairs, one with a king size bed and the other one with three single beds: two single beds can be joined to make another king size one, in case you are two couples travelling. Upstairs, we also have the main bathroom with a shower and a closet room for your luggage. Downstairs, there is a spacious living-room with an open space kitchen, a second half bathroom with a WC and the washing machine, and a wide terrace, where you can stay in the sun, or read your books or dine in the open air. On the terrace, we also have an external shower: it’s very useful if you want to stay in the sun on the terrace and when you come back home from the beach.

Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Well equipped quiet house w/ Mt Etna view in the surroundings of Taormina
average rating of 4.7 based on 18 reviews

Angenehmer, gut gelegener Ausgangspunkt für einen Sizilien-Besuch

  • 5 of 5

Das Reihenhaus liegt in zweiter Reihe von der Straße und daher etwas ruhiger. Die Ausstattung ist gut: alles, was man braucht, ist vorhanden. Der Zustand der Unterkunft war gut (sauber usw.). Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und zuverlässig. Die Abwicklung der Miete lief unkompliziert und am Ende - da wir vom Streik bei unserer Fluggesellschaft betroffen waren - besonders großzügig: glücklicherweise war die Reinigung des Hauses erst für später geplant, so dass wir noch eine Übernachtung dranhängen konnten, um den Ersatzflug zu erreichen.

The row house is in the second row from the street and therefore a bit quieter. The equipment is good: everything you need is available (and clean etc.). The contact with the host is very friendly and reliable. The handling of the rent ran smoothly, and finally - as we were hit by the strike at our airline - very generous: luckily the cleaning of the house was only planned for later, so we could extend for an another overnight stay to reach the next flight.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We are pleased to hear that the extra night we offered was of help for you to face the strike. Be back whenever you like!

Het huis is precies zoals op de foto's

  • 4 of 5

Het huis van de fam. Schillaci is precies zoals op de foto's en van vrijwel alle gemakken voorzien. Ze zorgen zelfs voor strandstoelen, parasols en strandhanddoeken zodat je heerlijk naar het strand kunt zonder zelf alles van huis mee te hoeven slepen. De slaapkamers zijn ruim en van airco voorzien. Iets wat in de zomer erg fijn is, want het kan erg warm worden op Sicilië. Het huisje is inderdaad vlak bij een stenen 'strand', zodat je altijd snel even een duik kunt gaan nemen.

Het huis ligt in een blok van andere vakantiewoningen waarin voornamelijk Italianen verblijven. Dit geeft het gevoel van een Italiaanse volksbuurt.

Bij aankomst moet je eerst een toegangshek door vóór je het huis kunt zien. Je auto staat dus veilig achter een hek óf voor het huis óf op een soort grasveldje vlakbij als er in het smalle straatje bij het huis geen ruimte is.

Het is een mooie uitvalsbasis voor een bezoek aan de Etna en de stadjes aan de oostkant van Sicilië.

prima huisje

  • 4 of 5

Het was een prima huisje. Alles netjes, schoon, goed ruim voor 4 personen. Airco in de slaapkamers is heel goed gelet op de warmte. Buitendouche die wij bijna dagelijks gebruikten. Tv met satellietontvangst met ned. talige zender, was voor ons prettig (er was kampioenschap volleybal). Keurige badkamer, volop schone handdoeken. Ook comfortabel was dat er grote zeer goede strandbadlakens en stoelen en parasols waren om mee te kunnen nemen naar het strand. Dus een prima huisje, enige was dat er muggen waren, maar als we de "antimug" bakjes aanzetten dan was dat even later over. De beheerder is een plezierige, vriendelijke man, je kon hem bellen als je wilde, hij was er goed volgens afspraak.

Een aanrader voor wie niet het duurste wil maar wel houdt van dat alles op orde is.

Dorp zelf is niet bijzonder maar de zee is heerlijk en Taormina en Siracusa zeer goed bereikbaar en top!

Owner's Response: I would like to point out that there are two anti-mosquito devices in the house: you plug them and you are fine. About the village where our house is located, it's a small seaside one where you can really get rid of city rhythms and relax. Plus you are not in the middle of nowhere: 2 food shops, 2 cafes and 4 restaurants are open in the village all the year round, and more ones are in town just 1,5 km away!

très agréable location

  • 5 of 5

Agréable location, très bien équipée et très propre. On profite de la terrasse, située au sud. De la cuisine, on voit l'Etna et ses éruptions le soir.

On peut rayonner vers Taormine et autour de l'Etna. La plage que nous avons le plus appréciée est celle située à 900 m de la location: plage gratuite, parking gratuit, douche gratuite. Les parasols, les sièges de plage et la glacière nous ont été très utiles.

La climatisation est fonctionnelle et utile au mois d'Août.

Le propriétaire est sympathique. Conclusion: Agréable séjour à Riposto.

Zeer goed

  • 5 of 5

Prima huis, zeer compleet ingericht. Vlak bij zee. Goede ligging om de oost kant van Sicilie te bezichtigen.

Luca is erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Fijn terras, met parasol en tuinstoelen. Goede parkeerplek bij het huis.

Wij hebben een heerlijke week gehad in dit huis. Woning klopt met de beschrijving, echt alles is aanwezig en functioneert.

Zeker een aanrader.

Our house is located in a small village of about 1000 dwellers on the east coast of Sicily, halfway between Catania and Taormina (about 30 km of both). It’s small enough for enjoying quietness and living at very low speed, but not so small as for feeling in the middle of nowhere. The village has been reached by ancient lava flows by Mount Etna, so the coastline features a landscape you do not see a lot: a series of small bays with interesting rocky sea bottoms to watch. You can reach them easily in a 5 minutes walk from our house and they are perfect places for a quick dive. If you want a "standard" beach where you can spend the whole day in the sun, a long and wide pebbly beach is 5 km north of our house: you can also reach that by bicycle, enjoying enjoying wonderful views of Mount Etna along the way. We have two bicicles. A seaside walk and cycling path of about 2 km also leads you to the waterfront of the nearby town of Riposto: this is a tourist harbour, and also the main fishing harbour on the east coast of Sicily, and hosts a daily market with fresh local vegetables and any sort of fish you may want to try! For dining out, in the village there are two cafes, five restaurants, pizzerias, a wine bar and a pub with a beautiful terrace over the sea, all within walking distance of our house. More dining places are at Riposto, we have our favourite one which is specially about fish, of course. Apart from the sea and the coastal environment, another key element in the landscape is Mt Etna: you can take wonderful hiking trips along the east slope or visit the gorge of river Alcantara, separating Mt Etna from the Nebrodi Mountains. You will need to hire a car to do this. If you want to hire a car, you can also use our house as your headquarters for visiting Sicily: the motorway is just 6 km away and you can move fast towards many interesting destinations. To name a few, Taormina and the top of Mount Etna can be reached in less than 30 minutes; Catania, the gorge of river Alcantara, the wine route of Mount Etna and the north coast can be reached in less than one hour; Siracusa, the south east, central Sicily and the Nebrodi mountains are less than two hours away by car. Otherwise, you can also reach the railway station at Giarre by bycicle and then move along the coast by train, reaching Taormina, Catania and Siracusa.
