Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Riposto

The house, which also offers a beautifull terrace looking the Etna on a side and the sea on the other, is an old restored stall, nestled in the countryside, mostly orange, olive, banana and mango trees. Around the house a private garden with two positions to eat, hammocks, deck chairs and barbecue is a paradise to relax and enjoy the relax after swim in the sea or a tour.

The property ends on the sea, five minutes walk or by car The beach, called "Praiola Piccola", is not private and consists of stones of various sizes. The music of the waves and the smell of the sea will delight your stay. In the season of blossom the fragrance of the "zagara", the flower of orange, will be irresistible but each season will have a surprise for you . It 'surrounded by a beautiful private garden with a large lawn with deck chairs, hammocks and tables to eat with both view of Etna on a side and the sea on the other. The house is furnished with taste and love and is recomanded for anyone who likes the simple life of the countryside. It can happen to encounter a spider or a worm, the house is surrounded by nature and they are the main habitants, are not enemies!

Why alessandra pennisi chose Catania

Why is a corner of paradise, because it is full of energy, because the sea is fragrant and the sound of the waves relaxes the mind, because Etna is magnificent, because for every season you will find a specialty, because it is a place loved, because you can also stay a month without ever feeling the need to go out, because it is romantic, because the kids love it, because it is close to the most beautiful places of Sicily, because the garden is beautiful ............. ...........because it belongs to my family for over a hundred years, and even though I live in Rome, my soul is there and I hope that my sons will love this land like me.

Incantevole

  • 5 of 5

Spesso concepiamo il lusso come sfoggio di beni e ostentazione di ricchezza. Il lusso invece è il lussureggiare della vegetazione, il profluvio di odori, colori e sapori, la bellezza della persone che ti ospitano. L'incanto del luogo. Tutto questo per noi è stato Carrubba (rigorosamente con due "b"). Grazie di cuore a chi ha accolto noi e i nostri bimbetti in quest'angolo meraviglioso di Sicilia.

3 Garten, Blick auf Ethna und Meer, herrlich!

  • 4 of 5

Wir verbrachten in diesem Haus einen wunderschönen Osterurlaub. Es düftete herrlich nach Organgen, Zitronen und Jasmin. Die Früchte konnten wir im Garten pfücken, zu Fuß an den Steinstrand gehen, auf Ethna und das Meer die ganze Zeit blicken. Das Haus hat einen Vorgarten vorne, einen an der Seite und einen mit 2 unterschiedlichen Sitz- und Essmöglichkeiten hinten. Ein guter Punkt um Ausflüge in den Norden und den Süden zu unternehmen. Die Vermieterin schickt auch sehr wertvolle Infos über die Umgebung (und den besten Fischrestaurant aller Zeiten).

Das Haus ist ohne Heizung, mit einem kleinen Ofen in dem einem Schlafzimmer und einem ehe nicht sehr Wärme spennenden, offenen Kamin im Wohn- und Esszimmer. Das andere Schlafzimmer blieb im April kalt. Auch die Duschen bräuchten eine Generalüberholung.

Am und im Haus gibt es 2 steiler Leiter und der Garten zum Meer hin ist nicht sehr Kleinkind sicher. Dafür gibt es hier viel zu entdecken.

Die Vermieterin liegt großen Wert auf ökologische Einrichtung (man findet fast gar kein Plastik).

Sehr empfehlenswert!

  • 4 of 5

"Gite très agréable au milieu des orangers et des citroniers (on peut se faire son jus de fruit frais le matin !). Beau jardin face à l'etna, d'où on a eu la chance de voir 2 eruptions dans la semaine. A noter que la mer n'est pas directement visible / accessible (plage non conseillée pour les enfants).

Le jardin est très (trop?) bien entretenu (qqs dérangements très matinaux d'arrosage, débroussaillage aux abords et passages fréquents dans le jardin).

La maison est spacieuse, décorée avec soin de manière rustique. A noter que les installations des sanitaires sont à améliorer (notamment les douches).

Point de départ idéal pour visiter Syracuse (1h), l'etna, les gorges de l'alcantara, Taormina, et même les iles éoliennes (1h pour Milazzo)."

  • 4 of 5

"Avons particulièrement apprécié ce séjour à l''écart des stations touristiques, au coeur d''un verger de citrons, oranges... Le jardin est très bien entretenu (attention toutefois à ne pas réveiller les locataires avant 9h du matin et choisir un horaire qui convient mieux!), la maison est rustique, a bcp de charme, bien équipée (même s''il a fallu réparer nous-même l''Hifi qui ne marchait pas, il y a également un problème d''électricité (coupures) à régler avec la prise extérieure lorsque la machine à laver est branchée dessus).

La propriétaire est pleine d''attentions (fleurs à l''arrivée, soirée organisée avec ts les locataires...) et son "homme de main" est particulièrement efficace et attentionné.

J''ai toutefois était un peu déçue à mon arrivée lorsque je me suis rendue compte que la maison/jardin n''avait aucune vue sur la mer, contrairement aux photos. Il y a seulement une terrasse sur le toit avec un accès peu pratique (échelle fixée) qui donne une magnifique vue sur la mer et l''Etna et je recommande chaudement d''amménager la terrasse sur le toit pour pouvoir en profiter vraiment, car c''est un atout essentiel dans cette location, en dehors du jardin.

Dernier détail, les premiers jours nous étions étonnés de voir défiler dans l''entrée du jardin, les locataires d''à côté qui venaient ouvrir ou fermer le robinet extérieur sur lequel ils avaient branchés un tuyau pour pouvoir se doucher ?

Car: recommended

By car: take the motorway from Messina, Giarre exit, continue towards Catania, after 3 km there is the indication for Carrubba/San Leonardello. By air: from Catania, take the motorway for Messina, exit at Giarre, and then as above. Look google maps to see the proprierty :https://maps.google.it/maps/ms?msid=201731656736091094711.0004bc4b744b83675c6a0&msa=0&ll=37.684712,15.201527&spn=0.003286,0.004823

Carrubba, the village, is situated halfway between Catania and Taormina and you can find all type of necessary shops. Giarre and Riposto with a turistic arbour and an old fesh market is reached in about 5 km . Etna, the volcano, can be reached in about half an hour by car and can be seen from the house. Its favorable geographical location allows easy access to famous places like Taormina, Acireale, Catania, Siracusa, Piazza Armerina and make excursions to the magnificent picturesque "Alcantara Gorges." The Etna volcano is half an hour and will offer a special performance.

Council this situation for families and groups of friends and romantic cuople wishing to spend a holiday in the nature and who want to have a basis for Sicily and discover its wonders.In the house you'll find a small guide that I've made, with the information about the most interesting places to visit around Sicily. The bar in the village is the best of the surroundings and it will delight you with the most famous Sicilian specialties: the granite with brioche, the oranges, almond pastries, fried donuts etc.. Very suitable for families with children. It's important to have a car to explore the area and the rest of Sicily
