Just like the pictures

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is just like the photo's , very pretty, floor tiling throughout making the it very cool on hot sunny days.

Excellent views of Mount Etna, and the coast as the village is on a hill side.

Plenty of site seeing available, Mount Enta day trip a must.

The owners are a very nice couple who showed us around the cottage,explaining all we needed to know, a welcoming gift of Coffee & biscuits, also a basket of fresh lemons picked from his garden was left in the kitchen for us.

Great holiday, excellent weather and good clean will maintained property would recommend.

Very friendly couple. The place was very roomy and had a nice terrace to enjoy the balmy evenings"

petite maison rurale idéale pour les amoureux de la nature

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans ce petit gite simple mais propre et où rien ne manque (attention pas de wifi cependant). Les versants nord et sud de l'Etna sont tout proches pour de magnifiques randonnées dans une nature préservée (belles forêts de pins près de Linguaglossa , Valle Del Bove près de Zafferana Etnea) avec de jolies vues sur les sommets et sur la côte. Se procurer la carte du Mont Etna dans une petite boutique car les chemins sont peu balisés et goûter le délicieux miel local ! M et Mme GRECO nous ont réservé un accueil adorable, attentionné et nous ont fait profité des très bons produits de leur jardin. Nous recommandons vivement ! Isabelle et Alain

des propriétaires agréables, si vous aimez la tranquillité, allez à Puntalazo. Petit village à 15 kilomètres des commerces, à 26 d'une plage potable, mais à quelques encablures de l'Etna. Pour les randonneurs le top. Le prix de la location est plus que correct. Mais si vous allez en Sicile, une semaine au sud, puis une au nord paraît être la bonne solution.

Bonne location

  • 3 of 5

Location fidèle à la description qui en ai faite. Propre, simple et bien équipée. Les propriétaires sont charmants et accueillants. Il est à noter qu'il faut traverser la rue pour accéder à la terrasse mais ce n'est pas dérangeant!
