Immersed in the green, having a swimming pool in a unique and very panoramic scenery, in the heart of the historical center of this ancient country.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Even the pics on the website looks good, they dont really tell the whole truth: the actual experience was better than in the pics.

Beautuful garden, private pool, spacious house in the middle of the village just short walk to Carrefour express, seafood and vedgetable/fruit shop and eateries. Friendly neighbourghs. What more you can ask for?

We did not see any other tourists in the village, so if you want to experience local lifestyle, this is one of the best choices. Remember to learn some Italian before you go, as English is generally not spoken by locals.

  • 5 of 5

"The house was great and suited perfect our group of five persons. Rooms were spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Garden was big and well kept and the pool was lovely. Owners were friendly and we felt welcomed.

Trecastagni Village was small traditional italian village, but you could still find a few nice restaurants and coffee shops from the village (for example restaurant Il Saponari). Great place to make short trips to Taormina Catania and Syracuse."

  • 5 of 5

"Excellent town location close to great fishmongers, fruit & veg shops and pizza restaurant. Owners friendly and helpful but discreet. Clean and well furnished. Garden is fantastic though indoor space more compact and lounge/dining room a little dark. No toaster & fireplace located in main bedroom. Views from garden superb. Great for Etna and north east Sicily. To go south or west means driving the Catania ring road- very busy except during siesta. Towels and linen not replaced during fortnight and no cleaner supplied (though available for supplement I believe). Overall verdict very comfortable and lovely location but a little overpriced in our experience."
