Why ALBERTO BRACCI TESTASECCA chose Riposto

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.

il sogno realizzato

  • 5 of 5

un luogo magico, tra il vulcano e il mare, immerso nella natura. La casa è molto particolare, arredata in maniera semplice ma con grande gusto. I letti sono comodi, il giardino magnifico e ben curato. Il luogo ideale per una vacanza di relax, buon cibo, profumi e gusti siciliani. Perfetta per chi non ha voglia di muoversi ma anche per chi invece ama scoprire nuovi luoghi da visitare. Grazie ad Alessandra, per la sua discrezione ma sempre attenta a non far mancare nulla e a Sebastiano.

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)."
