Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Trecastagni - Casa Etnea

Magnificent view in Etna natural park

Old typical house completely renovated, real countryside, at about 900 meters with great view over Ionian sea and mount Etna. Relax pool to enjoy the house after a walk on the old crater that is realy close to the house.

From the house you can reach in about 30 minutes the Ionian sea and at the same time the highest parts of the volcano. Etna sout touristic area, with the cableway, is no more then 20 minutes from Casa Etnea-Lava house

  • 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.

Magnifique endroit en pleine nature

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine à la casa Etna. C'est une maison très bien rénovée, spacieuse et fonctionnelle.

Nous remercions Guiseppe qui parle un excellent français et a été de bon conseil pour nos excursions sur l Etna et son fils Alfredo pour l'accueil sympathique malgré l'heure tardive!

Nous reviendrons volontiers y séjourner.

La présence d'un second gîte mitoyen ne nous a pas gêné et cela nous a permis d'échanger sur la découverte de cette belle région.

Petites améliorations possibles : ajouter quelques panneaux pour indiquer l'accès à la casa (difficile à trouver de nuit !) et l'équipement de la cuisine un peu juste pour six.

Nous reviendrons !

  • 5 of 5

Bien sur, il y a là une maison écologique restaurée avec gout, chaleureuse et confortable (3 salles de bains !)

Bien sûr, il y a là un panorama exceptionnel sur la mer et sur l'Etna (quelle magnifique terrasse)

Bien sûr, il y a la proximité de Cataania, Taormina, Siracusa....(mais dans un endroit tranquille, loin du monde)

Bien sûr, il Ya tout ça, mais en plus, il y a Giuseppe et son épouse, des hôtes exceptionnels !

Giuseppe vous parlera avec passion de "sa Etna" et vous tomberez amoureux de cette région.
