Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Riposto

The House of the Sun is a welcoming apartment located on the first floor of a 4-units building set at 50m from the shore of Torre Archirafi, a delightful seaside village in the heart of the Ionian coast of Sicily. The house is surrounded by a very quiet and panoramic environment; you can indulge in pleasant walks along the waterfront (or cycle along a mile-long path) while enjoying the views of Taormina and the Calabrian coastline. Moreover, you can easily walk to the mini-market, pharmacy, post office, municipal playground, and several cafes and restaurants. The house is very comfortable and hospitable: it has two large balconies (both equipped with outdoor furniture) where you can relax in the cool summer evenings; it is provided with air conditioners to freshen up in the hot Sicilian afternoons; and has recently been completely refurbished and endowed with smart and functional interior designs. Renting out for the first time.

vacanza stupenda

  • 5 of 5

Quest'estate io e altri tre miei amici abbiamo deciso di trascorrere 10 giorni nella costa orientale della Sicilia e abbiamo pernottato in questo bellissimo appartamento . l'immobile è ampio, spazioso , dotato di tutti i confort (climatizzatore, ombrellone spiaggia, lavatrice e biancheria) e soprattutto pulitissimo. Consigliamo al 100% questa località e ringraziamo i gentilissimi proprietari per l'accoglienza e l'aiuto fornito, Serafina e suo marito sono delle persone fantastiche con cui abbiamo avuto subito un ottimo rapporto.

alla prossima

vacanza svago!

  • 5 of 5

Buongiorno, la vacanza trascorsa da mio figlio e i suoi amici è stata particolarmente perfetta perché la casa e veramente come nelle foto e non manca nulla il posto e molto bello e puoi girare parecchi posti. E poi un ringraziamento al Sig. Leonardo per aver accolto i ragazzi e offrendogli una buona granita. Che dire magari un giorno verrò anch'io con il resto della famiglia.

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour...

The apartment is very nice, cozy, well decorated and very comfortable.

The apartment, quiet, well located for tourists who want to visit the Etna but also to visit places like Taormina or Siracusa.

We had a pleasant stay ...

From highway A18 exit at Giarre’s Tollbooth; then go on towards Riposto and follow directions to Torre Archirafi.

Situated in a logistically strategic location, the House of the Sun allows guests to shift within a few kilometres from the peaks of Europe's highest volcano to the shores of Sicily's Ionic coast. Thus, you can easily reach Etna's eastern slope, where to admire the impressive landscape of its “Natural Park” passing through astonishing walking/hiking trails among woods and lava flows, having great fun at the winter sports facilities, or going through the itineraries of the "Wine Route" among the heady odours characteristic of Etna's hinterland vini-cultural and wine-making tradition and the inimitable flavours of typical Sicilian cuisine. If you love seaside towns you just need to choose from the many pearls which adorn the Etnean Ionian coast. In just a few minutes you can reach Taormina and Giardini Naxos, ancient villages permeated by classic history and culture, enchanting for their natural landscapes (don't miss the nearby “Alcantara Gorges”), marine beauties and historical monuments; the nearby Riposto, with its typical fish market and the stupendous Marina, where you can rent boats and rafts; or Acireale and Catania, jewels of Sicilian Baroque in between which stand out the stunning sea cliffs of Stazzo, Santa Maria la Scala, Acitrezza and Acicastello. It is also worth seeing the gems of Sicily's inland such as Piazza Armerina, Syracuse and Noto, famous for their history, artworks and unique archaeological sites.
