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.

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!

Location toujours aussi agréable.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons apprécié , de la même façon que la première fois, car il s'agit de notre second séjour dans cette maison, la gentillesse, la disponibilité des propriétaires. C'était un plaisir d'y retourner. La maison est toujours aussi accueillante et propre. Nous avons apprécié le nouveau système de ramassage des ordures ménagères. Elles ne trainent plus sur la route lorsque les bennes sont pleines. Grand progrès. Josiane G.

Un vrai dépaysement sur les pentes de l'Etna

  • 5 of 5

Un endroit à conseiller : village tranquille avec cloches de l'Eglise qui tintent discrètement aux rythmes des quarts d'heure, des coups d'oeil depuis la rue sur l'Etna en éruption, des repas sous la tonnelle aménagée avec de la vigne, une maison très propre avec des équipements en très bon état, des propriétaires très disponibles et offrant de délicieux produits du jardin (tomates, pêches...) ou produits locaux (pain, confiture faite par Angelo..).

On a bien aimé aussi les explications d'Angelo sur l'histoire de sa maison, les éruptions de l'Etna, les coutumes locales.

Bref, une adresse à conseiller à toutes les personnes recherchant des vacances tranquilles à deux pas de l'Etna, de la mer et aussi tout près de Taormine. Possibilité de se rendre aussi dans d'autres villes de Sicile avec un accès assez rapide à l'autoroute (à Giarre).

Bellissimo soggiorno a Puntalazzo, tutto era perfetto! Casa molto pulita e gentilezza di Angelo e delle sua moglie che hanno fatto tutto per farci sentire bene nella loro casa.

I loro prodotti dell'orto erano buonissimi. Molto interessanti anche le spiegazioni di Angelo sulla storia della casa, sulle eruzioni dell'Etna, sulla vita locale e le abitudini della gente del paese.

Questo posto è da consigliare per chi è appassionato dalle eruzioni dei volcani ma anche per chi non lo è (perché lo diventerà senza dubbio!) per chi ama andare al mare e chi ama la cultura (bellissimi posti di Sicilia da vedere su tutto il littorale).
