Great views of Etna from Spacious Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in Torre Archirafi has lots of living space and was more than we needed for a family of four. It is well presented in a nice location in a quiet residential area. It is not overlooked so you have privacy. We had a really relaxing enjoyable stay.

A car is essential and this is a great base for exploring the coast from Taormina to Siracuse and all points in between. There are some very good restaurants close by and in nearby Riposto. Local supermarkets had all that we needed.

Our hosts Carlo and Pino were excellent and helped us feel at home from the start. We only met them at the beginning and end of our stay but I do feel if we'd had any problems they would have helped us through them.

  • 5 of 5

"Our stay at the villa was very nice. Pino and Carlo were very friendly. They helped us with whatever we needed and gave us very good tips on what to do around. They even welcomed us with wine and milk for the next day. The house was clean and had everything we needed. It is situated in a quiet village, around 2 km to the nearest city so a car is necessary, but it is close to everything on the east cost. Etna is visible from the terrace (we saw 2 eruptions there), there are wide beaches a few km away, Siracusa and Catania are not far, Taormina was almost on our daily schedule. Overall, it was a nice holiday."

"I have been in love with...

  • 5 of 5

"I have been in love with sunny and smiling Italy for 10 years already, but now I can say Sicily is even something special. We liked everything: the nice house, the fresh food, the beatiful seafront and long lovely beaches.The house is very big and comfortable, it's situated in a quiet village, away from the noisy city centre. Pino and Carlo were as helpful and friendly to us as only might be, they met us in the airport and drove to the place,there were water, milk,cereal,coffe, tea, even sparkling wine and lemons for breakfast in the fridge.They treated us as not as renters but as guests of the family.

The only thing I would add, if you are going to stay at this lovely place,the car is required!!! "

  • 4 of 5

"The house was spotlessly clean. It was located in a village approx. 400m from the seafront. Nearest town was 2 Km. away. The owners met us at Catania airport, helped us sign out our hire car and guided us to the house. They couldn't have been more helpful. There were a couple of restaraunts and supermarkets which were within a short walking distance which we used. They were very reasonably proced. It was a good base for visiting places on the east coast such as Siracusa, Taormina and Mt. Etna. All seven of us had an enjoyable time. We were delighted with the holiday."

  • 5 of 5

"Our choice in selecting this property was perfect. The house was ideal for our purposes. It is in a beautiful location, only steps from the sea and overlooking Mount Etna. The house itself is lovely, with five bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen is well-equipped. And the balcony that stretches from the front door to the kitchen door out back was the ideal bonus. We loved this house. We could not have been happier with our choice."

Charmant séjour en famille

  • 5 of 5

Le propriétaire et son frère ont eu la gentillesse de venir nous guider depuis la sortie d'autoroute jusqu'à leur très grande maison.

Nous étions 2 parents avec 5 jeunes adultes et avions très largement de la place !

Les chambres sont très spacieuses et les deux salles de bain appréciables pour autant de personnes.

Les deux terrasses offraient soit une très belle vue sur l'Etna soit un abri du vent pour les soirées.

La maison est très bien équipée à tous les points de vue (vaisselle - seul petit bémol, l'absence de lave vaisselle :-) - linge de maison, etc ...).

L'emplacement de parking à l'intérieur de la propriété est également le bienvenu avec des voitures de location !

La seule réserve est au sujet de l'accès internet impossible (pourtant toujours indiqué dans l'annonce ...) qui a fait grand défaut à nos étudiants les plus studieux et aux parents qui souhaitaient adapter les visites et excursions en fonction de la météo ...
