  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spacious villa set in an enormous private garden. The rooms are very generous, including a huge lofty double height living/dining room. Outside there are extensive lawns, sunny patios, shady veranda's and trees and a large canopied dining area with table and chairs to match. The villa is in a wonderful elevated position with fabulous views of Etna, the coast, sea and surrounding countryside. It's in a very convenient location for visiting the many outstanding places of interest in this part of Sicily. Maria and her family couldn't be more helpful and friendly. This has clearly been their family home and as such has all of those added extras that enhance the overall holiday experience - the garden even boasts a family of tortoises. We had a great time.

Thank you Maria.

"We have spent a wonderful week in "casa Tartaruga". Maria and her husband made ​​us a very pleasant stay with their kindness and sympathy. Even they gave us a beatiful gift at the end of our stay. The house is very comfortable and is located at the feet of the volcano. A fantastic place to start exploring the island. We recommend this house to everyone who wants to travel to Sicilia."

Wunderbarer Landsitz mit großem Garten

  • 5 of 5

Wir, 4 Erw. und 3 Kinder, haben in diesem wunderbaren Haus unseren Urlaub verbraucht. Das Haus liegt an einem Hang mit Blick auf das Meer und den Ätna.

Das Haus ist sehr groß, sehr gut eingerichtet und wir haben uns sofort wohlgefühlt! Alle Zimmer sind liebevoll eingerichtet und die Küche war gut ausgestattet.

Das gesamte Haus war sehr sauber und die zwei Bäder sehr gut eingerichtet!

Maria und ihr Mann sind herzliche Gastgeber und haben uns aufgrund der späten Anreise am Samstagabend alles für ein Frühstück am Sonntag zur Verfügung gestellt. Das ist mehr als wir erwartet hatten! Danke auch das unsere Kinder die Schildkröten für sich entdecken konnten!

Die Lage des Hauses war für uns genial! Wir konnten von Pennisi alle unsere geplanten Ausflüge (Taormina, Syrakus, Aci Terezza, Aci Castello, Zaffarane, Stazzo, St. Maria, Riposto, Naxos, Strände von Spisone und Isla Bela) bequem erreichen.

Sogar der kleine Ort hat ein kleines Geschäft, eine Tankstelle und eine Piazza, wo an manchen Tagen abends "Karaoke" veranstaltet wird.

Wir können das Haus, die Umgebung und unsere Gastgeber nur weiterempfehlen!! Und danken Maria, Sandro und Laura für den erholsamen Aufenthalt in Pennisi!

Herzlichen Dank auch für die Erklärung mit der Autovermietung, weil wir unwissend per Telepass auf die Autobahn gefahren sind!

La villa è ben arredata e signorile al di sopra delle aspettative. E' situata in posizione panoramica e tranquilla e l'autostrada Acireale ME- CT è a pochi minuti. L'Etna e Taormina sono circa 20 minuti di macchina. Fare colazione fuori in giardino ampio con l'Etna alle spalle e il mare in vista è notevole. Consigliamo questa villa con grande piacere e speriamo di poterci tornare. Ringraziamo la sig.ra Maria e marito per la loro gentilezza e le loro attenzioni. Un grazie di cuore. Caroline and Paolo

We were on holiday with our italian relatives and confirm what they have written. The villa is unique, we loved that it felt like a home, well situated for visiting the tourist attractions, it is a pity that sicily has so much to see because the house and garden are so beautiful that you don't want to leave. We also wish to thank Maria and husband for their generosity and cake that was delicious!! We highly recommend this villa to all. We would certainly go back.

Belle maison très agréable et fonctionnelle

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison parfaitement équipée et au charme certain. Extrême gentillesse et grande disponibilité et attention de la propriétaire et de son époux (encas prévu le soir de notre arrivée tardive ). Jardin sécure pour les enfants. Situation parfaite pour visiter de la cote est '(accès autoroute rapide) et vue sur l'Etna , et la mer en prime. Seul regret, nous aurions du prévoir un séjour + long ! (15 jours au lieu de 8 !!) pour profiter plus longtemps à la fois de l'endroit, de la gentillesse des habitants et des beautés de l'ile ; donc nous reviendrons plus longtemps !.A recommander absolument.
