Large furnished appartment in an old sicilian house in fishermen's willage near the marina

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the appartment for 4 nights. Both the hosts - Giovanni and Giulia were very kind and always available. Giovanni is a very experienced sailor and even tried to take us sailing on his sailing boat once, alhough the weather was not nice and our daughter was sea sick due to the waves. But we appreciate the effort. The appartment is not new, but it has all that is needed if you want to be self-sufficient - washing machine, dishwasher, totally equipped kichen. There is a great butcher's shop, a vegetable and fish market and a little delicatesse shop (with great prosciutto and mortadella and olives) in a radius of 100 m from the appartment. I highly recommend trying it! There is a small bay out of the balcony (10 steps), although we didn't like the beach in Riposto and instead went to Giardini Naxos and Taormina for swimming. There is also a nice lungomare for running which goes around 3 km one way to the west to a nerby village. A nice morning 6 km run... We had enough bed linnen and plenty of towels. There are only 2 drawbacks, as far as I am concerned: the appartment has no air-conditioning, the fans work great, but you have to have the windows opened and there are quite some mosquitoes through the night; the second one is a pizzeria under the appartment - we go to bed quite early (around 10 pm) and there is a lot of noice from under the windows untill midnight - if you go to bed late, this will not be a problem! All in all, for the price, the Riposto experience was great and I recommend it!

Très bon séjour dans l'appartement de Giovanni Grasso à Riposto du 16 au 22 octobre 2016

  • 5 of 5

Nous donnons 5*+ au propriétaire pour son accueil, sa gentillesse, sa disponibilité...Nous avons passé ensemble, à son invitation, une excellent matinée sur son voilier.

L'appartement est spacieux, d'une propreté impeccable, bien équipé et localisé près de la mer (parking aisé et gratuit). Il est à distance idéale pour visiter la région : l'Etna, Taormine, Syracuse,Catane...

Franchement, si vous comptez visiter le coin, prenez contact avec Giovanni! Vous ne serez pas déçu.

Magnifica vacanza!

  • 5 of 5

Io e la mia ragazza abbiamo trascorso un soggiorno di 10 giorni ad agosto presso la casa vacanza del signor Giovanni.

Abbiamo trovato un appartamento molto accogliente e spazioso affacciato direttamente sul mare e Taormina.

Comodo, sia come posizione rispetto ai vari centri turistici nelle vicinanze di Riposto, sia rispetto ai servizi che proprio quest'ultima fornisce.

Ringrazio da parte nostra il sig. Giovanni per la sua disponiblità e le sue premurose attenzioni:

- giri in barca a vela e gommone di sua proprietà.

- possibilità di essere trasportati in auto direttamente dall' aereoporto.

- reperibilità ad ogni ora del giorno per qualsiasi evenienza.

- mercato del pesce da lui consigliato a ottimi prezzi e qualità.

- beni di prima necessità appena arrivati nell'abitazione.

ed altre piccole sfaccettature che riscontrerete in prima persona qualora decideste di alloggiare presso questo appartamento.

Una persona che porta con se' anche un bagaglio culturale che può impreziosire la propria vacanza in Sicilia.

Che dire. Andateci in Sicilia. Ed anche a riposto. Non ve ne pentirete!

appartamento accogliente come il proprietario

  • 5 of 5

Siamo partiti entusiasti e tornati soddisfatti: Riposto si trova in un punto strategico per visitare questa zona della Sicilia: Catania, Taormina,le spiaggie e lo splendido Etna.

Grazie all'accoglienza e alla disponibilita' del sig. Giovanni proprietario dell'appartamento abbiamo trascorso una splendida vacanza.

L'appartamento e' in perfette condizioni sia come pulizia che come spazi.

Si torna a casa con il ricordo di bei posti e belle persone!

Très bon séjour dans cet appartement à Riposto

  • 5 of 5

Séjour très agréable dans l'appartement tout équipé et bien entretenu. Il est très bien situé, aussi bien à proximité des commodités de la ville que pour visiter aux alentours. Et avec une belle vue sur la mer ! C'est l'endroit idéal où séjourner en Sicile.

De plus, le propriétaire est très accueillant, nous avons passé ensemble deux matinées en mer sur son invitation : ce fut un réel plaisir en très bonne compagnie (et en français de surcroît) ! Graziè Giovanni !

unvergleichliche Gastfreundschaft

  • 5 of 5


Wir sind gerade aus unserem zweiwöchigen Urlaub in Riposto zurück und restlos begeistert. Giovanni (der Vermieter) holte uns vom Bahnhof ab und brachte uns am Abfahrtstag auch wieder hin. Er teilte uns sofort mit, bei jeglichen Fragen und Wünschen rund um die Uhr verfügbar zu sein. Das können wir nur bestätigen! Ob bei einer kleinen Stadtrundführung, dem Fischkauf oder der Vermittlung einer wunderschönen Ätna-Tour, Giovanni war immer zur Stelle :) Sogar eine Segeltour bot er uns an, die wir begeistert wahrnahmen.

Die Wohnung ist extrem großräumig, gut gepflegt und ein kleiner Badestrand ist direkt vor der Tür. Außerdem bleibt es auch bei höheren Temperaturen angenehm kühl. Mückenstecker helfen sehr gut gegen die kleinen Plagegeister. Wir können den Aufenthalt bei Giovanni nur empfehlen.


We have just returned from our two-week holiday in Riposto and are completely thrilled. Giovanni (the owner) picked us up at the train station and took us back there on the day of departure. He told us we could contact him with any questions and wishes we had, 24 hours a day. That promise was very true. Whether doing a small city tour, buying fishes or organizing a beautiful Etna tour, Giovanni was always available and helped us a lot :) He even offered us a sailing trip, we perceived enthusiastically.

The apartment is extremely spacious, well maintained and a small beach is right outside the door. Moreover, it remains cool even at higher temperatures. Mosquito plugs help very well against small pests. We can only recommend staying at Giovanni. Go there and you will have an extraordinary holiday in a non-touristic part of Sicily.

Italiano (Google translator):

Siamo appena tornati dalla nostra vacanza di due settimane a Riposto e sono completamente chiamata entusiasta. Giovanni (il proprietario) a prenderci dalla stazione dei treni e ci ha portato di nuovo lì il giorno della partenza. Lui ci ha detto che potevamo contattarlo per qualsiasi domanda e desideri che avevamo, 24 ore al giorno. Quella promessa era molto vero. Se fare un piccolo tour della città, l'acquisto di pesci o organizzare una bella gita sull'Etna, Giovanni ciò che sempre disponibile e ci ha aiutato molto :) Ha anche offerto un viaggio a vela, abbiamo percepito con entusiasmo.

L'appartamento è molto spazioso, ben tenuto e una piccola spiaggia è proprio fuori dalla porta. Più sopra, rimane fresco anche a temperature più elevate. Possiamo solo raccomandare presso Giovanni.
