Perfect property with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant week and friendly hosts.

Positives: -

Sitting outside watching smoke from Etna

River canyon park just up the road

Friendly, helpful hosts

Negatives: -

I wouldn't fancy driving up the road to the property in winter months. Its fine in Summer once you realise that you need to go up in first gear with you foot down to the floor.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. About the street: we live here the whole year, so we go up and down without problems. It's difficult if it snows (here rarely and only for few hours) or there's a water storm . In the end just put the first gear and go. Regards

Great view but hard to reach!

  • 3 of 5

We actually cut our stay short as bad weather made the road to the house a problem. The time of year wasn't appropriate for this property. There was no wi Fi and very limited TV. The unfortunate weather left the views of Etna undiscovered. We arrived back after an outing to a note on the door warning us not to leave for the next two days as a storm was forecast. No communication from the hosts until once power had been out and breakers could not be reset we had a very brief visit to explain how to turn the power back on. Also, there were no instructions for the house or the area left for renters. I have always found a helpful binder left by the owners in the past. There was no pool or fresh vegetables that we saw. Major concern though is the location which can be terrifying on your first few times over it. Definitely something you do not want to be doing at night! At this time of year it is dark very early.

Owner's Response: I would point out two main points: The first is that we do not have the power to change the weather situation, yet for the miracles we are not equipped. The second is that we do not sell fruits and vegetables but having a ground in a town near where we grow vegetables, sometimes pay tribute to the guests of our products (but it is only courtesy). The tenat and her guests were honored at the arrival of a bottle of wine from our own production and a basket of various foods (pasta, tomato sauce, homemade tuna, cheese, butter etc) because the lady did not feel off country for shopping because it was late and did not want to make the access road to the villa during the evening. I myself have offered to accompany them in the country in my car, but they refused. I live just a few meters from the villa and I said to the lady that I was available for any case day and night. During their stay unfortunately there was a meteorological event difficult but this is not our fault. I advised the lady with a message because she and her guests were not at home .. When they called me because there was no light on the ground floor I went to them in the rain to explain to them what they had to do to turn on the light again. I did not leave anything written warnings in the house because we are very close and always available to guests. If the guest had read well the announcement would see that the pool (above ground) is open from June to September,. then she could not wait to find the swimming pool at the end of October, I think I'm clear in the ad. As for the internet line is currently only wired, I said to the lady that if they needed I could give them my laptop but they would not. As for the access road to the villa in the ad it is specified that the road is narrow and steep (400 meters) I and other guests cross it without any problem because it is paved, it is natural that during a storm becomes a problem as all the streets of the hill, though who knows how to drive should have no problems. am sorry that the lady has been found hurt but she could tell right away and I would have addressed at a place best suited to his needs aside for the storm that I have no power to change. I also always recommend you read the ad in all its parts before booking. Regards

Wonderful house in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely restful stay with Giovanna and Francesco. The location was lovely with great views. The accommodation was spacious and homely with a great kitchen that was a pleasure to cook in, especially as there was fresh fish available in the village. It was an added bonus to be given fresh produce from the garden.We visited the gorge and had some nice walks near by. The local beaches were good but crowded, we found quieter ones by driving south. We moved on to Syracuse which we thought was wonderful.

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house with perfect location and a very nice view. The landlord was very nice and helpful and the house was perfect for a big family (equipped with everything you needed). To get to the house you had to drive up a steep hill on a narrow road (which was no problems but I would recommend a smaller car).

I would very much recommend this house and landlord!

Séjour parfait chez Giovanna et Francesco.

  • 5 of 5

Belle propriété, grande, propre, avec vue splendide sur la vallée, l'Etna et la mer se profilant au loin. Giovanna et Francesco sont accueillants et discrets. Bien située pour rayonner tant vers Taormina que vers les villes situées plus au sud comme Syracuse.

Nous recommandons cette propriété sans hésiter!

5 sur 5

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un super séjour d'une semaine chez Giovanna et Francesco. Ils sont très gentils et aussi discrets. Maison très grande, fonctionnelle et propre. Très belle vue sur l'Etna et la vallée. Le resto Paradise à 5 min offre un rapport qualité prix très bien. La terrasse est superbe. Très paisible le soir et merveilleux au levé du soleil.
