Impressive View

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view from the terrace. The appartment was clean and good, has everything you need. Comfortable beds. Wifi was not always working. Owners are very friendly, although they hardly speak other languages than Italian.

You really need a car to get there. Narrow roads and lots of curves. Beaches are not crowdy and the water is very clear. Also a visit to the Eolian Islands can be recommended. The owner can organize that for you. Really worthwhile!

We would certainly recommend the appartment and the location.

Traumlage mit sehr freundlichem Vermieter

  • 4 of 5

Die Lage des Appartements im Dachgeschoss ist wirklich so schön wie die Bilder es vermuten lassen, der Blick von der Terrasse atemberaubend. Dort zu sitzen und bei den Mahlzeiten das Auge über das Meer und die Eolischen Inseln schweifen zu lassen, war einfach herrlich. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig mitten im Hang. Eine noch schönere Aussicht hat man nur ganz oben vom Berg (Goiosa Guardia - ein Abstecher dorthin lohnt auf jeden Fall).

Für die Gestaltung der übrigen Zeit gibt der immer hilfsbereite und sehr freundliche Vermieter, der die Wohnung darunter bewohnt, gerne den einen oder anderen Tipp.

Bei all dem störte die schon etwas in die Jahre gekommene Kücheneinrichtung nur wenig. Ein fahrbarer Untersatz ist allerdings unverzichtbar. Die nächsten Einkaufsmöglichkeiten befinden sich in San Giorgio (gut 400 Höhenmeter und 2,5 Straßenkilometer unterhalb des Hauses).

Wir bedanken uns bei Franco für eine schöne Zeit!

Mit dieser Wohnung hatten...

  • 5 of 5

Mit dieser Wohnung hatten meine Frau und ich und unsere Kinder (8 und 11) einen echten Glücksgriff. Sie liegt im zweiten Stock unterm Dach des ruhig gelegenen Hauses hat zwei Schlafzimmer und ist nett und zweckmäßig eingerichtet (entspricht voll der Beschreibung). Alle wichtigen Dinge für den familiären Haushalt waren vorhanden. Das Highlight ist sicherlich die hübsche Terrasse mir dem grandiosen Panoramablick auf die Bucht von Patti und die vorgelagerten Inseln. Unsere täglichen gemeinsamen Mahlzeiten genossen wir auch deswegen sehr. Das zweistöckige Haus steht am Hang oberhalb des kleinen Ortes San Giorgio und ist umgeben von einer großzügigen Olivenplantage mit vereinzelten Zitronenbäumen und Feigenkakteen (herrlich). Die hilfsbereiten, sehr freundlichen und nie aufdringlichen Vermieter wohnen im ersten Stock. Eine weitere (kleinere) Wohnung mit einem Schlafzimmer befindet sich im Erdgeschoss.

Grundsätzlich ist ein Auto unbedingt zu empfehlen, da sich die Wege auch zu den naheliegenden Orten ziehen (2,5 Km Serpentinen abwärts bis San Giorgio, 6 km bis Patti). Abschließend kann ich sagen, dass nicht zu letzt diese schöne Bleibe viel zu unserem tollen Familienurlaub auf Sizilien beigetragen hat.

"Ormai sono tre anni che ...

  • 5 of 5

"Ormai sono tre anni che soggiorniamo nel mese di agosto in questo appartamento con terrazzo da una vista impagabile, e come per gli anni precedenti facciamo fatica a ripartire da questo posto fantastico. La tranquillità e la frescura notturna sono impagabili; per non parlare dell''accoglienza del sig. Francesco e delle sue collaboratrici, sempre attenti e disponibili per qualsiasi esigenza o richiesta. Mare fantastico e d''intorni da spettacolo. E per finire la compagnia di tre fantastici e simpatici amici a quattro zampe!! Sicuramente una vacanza da ripetere!"
