Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Graniti

The villa is located within our small vineyard which in turn is located within a garden of citrus (owned by others), in the beautiful 'Valle Alcantara'. Ideal place to spend holidays in direct contact with nature and away from the hustle and bustle. The area is isolated and there are no nearby houses but is only 800 meters from the town center of Gaggi. Excellent starting point for excursions to the tourist area. (Taormina, Gole Alcantara, Etna, Catania, Siracusa etc) The house consists of kitchen with dining area and sofa, bedroom with double bed and bunk bed (air-conditioned), bathroom with shower (complete), large veranda and area BBQ with wood stove and a one-roomed apartment with kitchen, table and chairs and double bed, little bathroom with shower no bidet, small veranda. The property is rented only to people of the same family or group of friends, and during their stay there will be no strangers.. Outside there is also a small rustic kitchen. In summer you can make use of the above ground pool and solarium. On the property are our two 4-legged friends Rocky and Dicky staying inside their box and I will care daily. Upon arrival, I 'll give you a bottle of wine for my production.WI-FI 1GB DAY from 8 to 24 -

peaceful house set among the vineyards

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house set among vineyards and olive groves .If it's total peace and quiet and relaxation you are looking for then this is the place .It is set about 500metres along an unmade road so a car is essential .Giovanna and Francesco are excellent hosts and we were made to feel very welcome .SIcilian

People are very warm and welcoming and we were invited to dinner with their

Family and friends which was a very enjoyable evening .There are many activities near to the property and further afield including Mt Etna and various

Coastal towns within easy reach via the motorway which is free except for a nominal toll to Cantania .

We really enjoyed our stay in Sicily and look forward to returning in the future

Thankyou for a really enjoyable break

Peaceful, tranquil and great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Giovanna and Francesco were the perfect They patiently attended to us after our flight was delayed. We received home grown tomatoes and a bottle of wine (A product of the vineyard that flanks the house). They also invited us for dinner, where we experienced great Sicilian food and hospitality. The house is well equipped and very clean. It's perfectly located, away from the hussle and bussle but still close enough to access it easily. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Ciao

very good

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this villa in March 2016 for three days and were very happy about the experience. The house was equipped with everything you need. Jovanna and Francesco were really helpful and answered all the questions about the area. They gave us a bottle of the wine made from their own grapes and that was really pleasant. Can gladly recommend this rental to the couples. As for the families I found that the bedroom though it has bunk bed for two kids would be too crowded for 4 people. Overall the farm was really nice and we would rent it again.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Francesco and Giovanna are such welcoming guests! The house was very clean and cosy, ideal for family with children (one bedroom where we slept with our 2 children).

The location in the middle of vineyards, with a view on Etna is perfect!! Very silent area. All Equipment to make your stay easy is there: kitchen, washing machine...

We thank Giovanna for her availaibility during our trip. She answered to our needs very quickly! We definetely recommend this villa

Superbe séjour dans un petit coin de paradis au milieu de la nature!

  • 5 of 5

Giovanna et Francesco nous ont accueilli chaleureusement dans leur propriété au milieu des vignes à 2 minutes de Gaggi.

Ici règne le calme et la verdure (vigne, potager, pommier, olivier, ...)! Nous avions à disposition toutes les informations disponibles pour visiter les alentours ainsi qu'une bonne bouteille de vin sur la table! La maison est très propre et complètement fonctionnelle avec tout le nécessaire pour se sentir chez soi (même un poêle à bois pour les hivers!).

Les deux terrasses extérieurs sont grandes et super agréables, partiellement abritées sous pergolas de vigne. La piscine est très appréciable, et nec plus ultra, avec vu sur le sommet de l'Etna d'où l'on peut admirer ses humeurs changeantes!

Tout était très calme (pas de voisin). Taormine à 15 minutes, Linguaglossa à 25 minutes (pour les départs de rando vers l'Etna versant nord), georges de l'Alcantara à 5 minutes (astuce: accessibles un peu partout le long de la rivière et pas uniquement par l'entrée principale qui vous coutera 15 €/personne!) Tout le nécessaire pour faire ses courses à Gaggi ou à Francavilla.

Merci encore Giovanna et Francesco pour cette belle expérience en Sicile! Cio

excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Les propriétaires sont charmants et discrets. Le frigo était garni avec les produits de première nécessité.

Angelo nous a donné une corbeille d oranges délicieuses et les premiers abricots de sa production.

Logement trés agréable et ombragé .
