  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable, so beautiful and spacy, and so many details expressed a friendly welcome so that we felt "at home" immediately. The view was amazing! The kids enjoyed the huge garden a lot and la famiglia R. was a great host. Giuseppe and Marta made excursions with us and showed us the Etna and its special environment.

It was an unforgettable holiday at Casa Etnea.

We hope to come back soon.

Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at volcano house. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Great view from the sitting area - especially in the night.

Guiseppe and Marta are great hosts and told us so interesting things about the Etna.

It's very close to the Etna and a great position to visit Taormina and Syracus.

Simply wonderful.

Que du bonheur

  • 5 of 5

En Sicile, il y a la chaleur, le soleil, les paysages, la gentillesse des Siciliens.

En Sicile, il y a la cuisine, les légumes, le bon (très bon) vin de l'Etna, les granita, les Arancini (Palermo ou Catane ?)

En Sicile, il n'y a pas le code de la route (sauf le jour du passage du permis de conduire), mais on s'y fait très bien, car c'est sans agressivité. J'ai virtuellement perdu mes 12 points français en conduisant comme un Sicilien, mais sans douleur.

Et par dessus tout, en Sicile, il y a la Casa Etnea de Pierra et Giuseppe, sans oublier l'autre Giuseppe et Anna.

La Casa Etnea est une maison de famille, mais elle a ceci d''extraordinaire que vous devenez membre de la famille (une famille sicilienne c'est quelque chose d'exceptionnel !). Pierra et Giuseppe parlent un français a nous donner honte de ne savoir dire que "Grazie". C'est un bonheur de passer des heures à discuter de l'Etna autour d'un verre de Grillo, et quand on a envie de changer de sujet, on peut parler de la Parmiggiana (et apprendre à la faire ensemble), de la Chapelure et des "Masculine" (private joke autour du poisson).

Et quand la famille et les amis se réunissent pour un repas, le fait de ne pas parler les mêmes langues (Giuseppe et Anna) n'est pas un problème, les sourires remplacent les mots.

Nous avons passé trois semaines à alterner les visites et les journées de farniente au bord de la piscine (dont la température n'a atteint QUE les 31°) où on se disait qu'il faisait chaud, mais que la piscine, les romarins et la vue sur Monte Illice (notre cratère privatif) étaient de bien belles choses, façon Dolce Vita.

Pour parler de Trescastagni, les commerçants y sont sympathiques, toujours enthousiastes à vous faire découvrir les produits locaux. Pour les visites, ne manquez pas de visiter place Saint Alfio, le petit musée des Ex-votos. C'est unique !

Pour finir, nous exprimons un énorme remerciement à nos amis Pierra et Giuseppe pour leur sens absolument exceptionnel de l'accueil.

Grazie mille... et à bientôt.
