Salvatore and Francesca c...

  • 5 of 5

Salvatore and Francesca collected us from Riposto station, gave us a tour of the town, showed us around the flat and left us a 'welcome pack' of 'dolci' in the kitchen. We had their telephone numbers and knew that they would always help us should we need it.

The house is large and spacious, the beds that we used extremely comfortable and the rooftop is a bonus, tho the top bedroom has no curtains so you might need something to wear over your eyes. The view of Mount Etna is stupendous from this bedroom and dominates the landscape tho you will need a wide angled lense to get the whole mountain in 1 go. Apart from the 'singing' coming from a nearby club on a Sat & Sun evening it's a quiet area. On the roundabout just by the house is a supermarket and a vegetable shop, another supermarket and a breadshop around the corner, and the butcher is just next to the front door. The bus stop for 2 bus companies is just outside the door (make sure you have the latest timetable from the Tourist Office) and will take you to Taormina with no problem. Riposto has a little port which brings in small private boats – the result of this, amongst other things, is a port with an excellent restaurant. The nearest beach is stony and most people wore lightweight plastic shoes for comfort (available from local market stalls),but 10 minutes on a bicycle will take you to a less stoney beach. We had an excellent week in their flat.

  • 5 of 5

"The view of Mt Etna and the sea from the appartment was wonderful. Within a minute there is a local supermarket, fruit+vegetable shop, meat shop, bread shop and a cafe with great icecream. The owners were very helpful and kind to us and made sure we knew where they lived in case we needed anything. The train that goes around Etna starts 3 mins from the appartment and the normal train station is about 25 mins away so it is easy to make trips by train."

  • 5 of 5

"It was more than what we expected. We were especially touched by friendliness of our hosts. They went extra mile for us. The apartment is very spacious, it has all the necesseties, the view on Etna is incredible. Supermarkets and shops are very close. The near-by beach is stone, but we drove for a couple of minutes and there was wonderful and very clean beach. We enjoyed our stay there very much."

Mycket bra lägenhet.

  • 4 of 5

Stor och rymlig lägenhet. Terassen var enorm med fantastisk vy, dock aningen smutsig.

Ägaren hade ordnat en stor bricka med lokala kakor och gav dessutom en bra guidad tur av staden direkt vid ankomst. Perfekt.

Rekommenderas!!!
