A rainy stay in a vineyard

  • 5 of 5

This charming, simple house is set in the foothills of Etna surrounded by lush vineyards, olive & citrus groves. It's a great location for visiting Taormina and the coast as well as venturing up the Alcantara valley & villages beyond. Our hosts Francesco and Giovanna were welcoming and helpful, recommending places to visit. But it rained ... and rained. We didn't see Etna at all until our third day. So, be warned, late June in Sicily can feel much like England in April. We'd recommend this little house in Gaggi to anyone who likes to get away from it all for a while.

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

Un coin de paradi en Sicile avec des propriétaires attentionnés

  • 5 of 5

Un séjour de rêve dans un cadre paradisiaque Sous le regard bienveillant de propriétaires attentionnés.

Avec l’Etna et la mer à quelques km ce petit paradis de la Sicile profonde nous a émerveillé par sa tranquillité, ses parfums d’olivier et d’agrimes.

Encore merci aux propriétaires pour leur accueil et leur gentillesse.

Take the highway A18 ME-CT, exit Giardini Naxos, direction Francavilla di Sicilia, continue for 7 km and will reach the village of Gaggi. Stop the service station "SP ENERGIA SICILIANA" at the beginning of the country, and contact us. Please note that to reach the house from the municipal government needs to cross a road about 300 meters and then a dirt road interpoderale, but practicable, about 350 meters. The road is not lit.We recommend using cars of medium or small

Restaurants with excellent Sicilian cuisine and prices in the vicinity, very good pizzerie and caterers.
