"We had a great time in this nice property overviewing the magnifecent landscape of the sicilian countryside and over the see.

The orange orchard and banana trees gave us pleasant feelings of tranquility along with the best juice I've ever squized personally. We are really grateful to the owner and the agency providing excellent service.

I would strongly recommend the house to all your clients."

Tres agreable maison

  • 5 of 5

La maison est tres spacieuse avec un jardin clos. L'odeur des citronniers est très agréable et nous avons aussi pu profiter des nefles à cueillir sur l'arbre Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la terrasse et le barbecue. La vue de la baie de Catane est splendide.

Les quelques inconvénients : maison un peu sonore (les portes et bruit de salles de bain)

manque une casserole de taille moyenne : Florinda pourra sans doute y remédier rapidement

Par temps maussade ou froid, il manquerait un salon à l'intérieur.

A savoir : La plage pour se baigner est de l'autre côté de Catane et un peu loin de la maison.

Nous recommandons la maison pour une grande famille qui passe des vacances en toute simplicité

Belle et grande villa avec vue imprenable sur la baie de catane, terrasse très agréable surplombant un verger d'agrumes a faire rêver. lits très confortables, chambres spacieuses. Cuisine fonctionnelle (un lave vaisselle serait un plus pour les grandes familles). Vaste terrain verdoyant et fleuri qui a fait le bonheur des enfants.

L'accueil des propriétaires a été parfait.

Villa a recommander chaleureusement

goede uitvalsbasis buiten de drukte van Catania

  • 5 of 5

We waren zeer blij met dit huis dat ons een prachtig zicht gaf op de stad maar toch afgescheiden was door een groene zone. Het terras is the place to be. De kamers zijn ruim. Het is een plezier om hier de wasmachine te kunnen gebruiken en 's nachts je was uit te hangen (die 's morgens droog is) zodat de klassieke wasdag na de reis dit jaar zeer goed meeviel. Verschiet niet als er 's nachts muziek weerklinkt of er om 2 uur 's nachts een vuurwerk om u tegen te zeggen, begint. Ook de afrekening was zeer correct. Er was een defect aan de wasmachine. Toch gaf de eigenaar onze waarborg volledig terug.

Het is heerlijk om bij de lokale bakker ovenvers brood te kunnen halen en bij de lokale groente en fruitboeren fruit te kopen dat nog echt als fruit smaakt.

Vergeet ook niet de stranden met lavastenen van Aci Castello (2 km) en Acireale (10 km) te bezoeken. Je kan in Acireale veilig van een rots duiken en vergeet je snorkels niet om je als een vis tussen de vissen te voelen. Volgens ons veel meer de moeite dan het overvolle strand van Taormina of het zandstrand met vliegtuiglawaai van Catania (8 km). Je moet je wel met de wagen verplaatsen want een wandeling bij 33 °C langs Siciliaanse wegen is levensgevaarlijk.

De topattractie voor de kinderen was Etnaland : een pretpark vol waterpret dat je in zwembroek of bikini bezoekt. Ook de noordkant van de Etna is indrukwekkend (en gratis). Wandelen bij 20 °C op ongeveer 1800 meter tussen de lavastenen, een unieke belevenis.

Beautiful view and good value for money

  • 4 of 5

All in all, this rental proved to be good value for money, but still, there were a few issues I found disturbing.

The villa was located much more remotely than expected - there is no beach at 2 km, you really have no chance of getting anywhere without a car - not even to a supermarket, which is something you don't really understand just by looking at a map.

Secondly, I didn't like the fact that the kitchen was poorly equipped - not enough cups etc for everyone and in poor condition.

The third thing I didn't like was the fact that you can hear every single noise in the house - the doors and windows don't close noiselessly - it' more like you have to slam them closed, which in a house for 10 people, is pretty annoying. You can't help but hear everyone open and shut doors everywhere in the house.

Apart from these faults, there is nothing wrong with the property - it was quite clean, the view is absolutely breathtaking, the courtyard is lovely, with grapes and lime trees, and it's in a rather quiet area (apart from the club across the street, which hosted a party on Saturday - understandable, considering it was the weekend).
