About the property

The apartment is situated on the first floor of a renovated farmhouse overlooking the Ionian Sea. The setting is a magnificent natural balcony surrounded by greenery, with a picturesque wooden bridge that leads up to the apartment. At only km 1½ from the nearest town the apartment is divided on two levels and is air conditioned. It includes a living room that converts to a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with a shower. There are also two shaded patios where one can relax and enjoy the wonderful view of Taormina, Calabria and the beautiful sea of Fondachello. The strategic location makes it easy to reach the centres of historic, naturalistic and cultural value; Taormina and Etna can be reached within 20 minutes whereas a dip in the sea at Fondachello is only 7 minutes away.

The ground floor of the house is occupied by the proprietor who will be happy to provide information and advice for tourists.

Schöne Unterkunft mit Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben in der Wohnung von Leopoldo sehr schöne und angenehme Osterferien verbracht. Die Wohnung ist eher einfach aber geschmackvoll eingerichtet und hat im Prinzip alles Wesentliche was man für einen Urlaub benötigt. Leopoldo war ein sehr aufmerksamer und gleichzeitig zurückhaltender Gastgeber der uns mit vielen Ausflugstipps und mit Zitronen/Orangen aus dem Garten versorgt hat. Besonders gefallen haben uns der Balkon mit Meerblick (ideal zum Frühstücken) bzw. die Terasse Richtung Etna (am Abend). Wir kommen gerne mal wieder!

Dépaysement total et localisation idéale

  • 5 of 5

Logement plein de charme et très dépaysant, bien équipé (climatisation, lave-linge), disposant d'une superbe vue de Riposto à Taormine et parfaitement situé pour visiter la côte Est de la Sicile, de Syracuse à Messine en passant par l'Etna bien entendu. Plages les plus proches à 10 minutes. Le propriétaire des lieux, Leopoldo, est très accueillant et disponible.

The accommodation is full of charm and ideal to break from the usual routine, well equipped (air conditioning, washing machine), with a superb view from Riposto to Taormina and perfectly located to visit the east coast of Sicily, from Syracusa to Messina, and the Etna of course. Nearest beaches within 10 minutes. The owner of the place, Leopoldo, is very welcoming and available.

Beautiful place for a relaxed holiday

  • 5 of 5

It was a great pleasure for us to spend our holidays at Dino´s house. As he lives downstairs and the holiday house is upstairs, he was always available for questions regarding the house or any recommendations regarding the region. We felt very comfortable at our stay as the house and its view is simply marvellous and thanks to Dino´s very kind and relaxed personality. The house provides everything you need for a perfect vacation. We cooked delicious meals we enjoyed having at one of the different terraces. We hope to return soon to this wonderful, quiet place and can highly recommend it to anybody longing for relaxed vacation.

Location agréable avec un très bon rapport qualité/prix.

  • 4 of 5

Le propriétaire (Dino) est très sympathique et très serviable. La location possède deux terrasses : une avec une belle vue sur la mer et l'autre avec une vue sur le jardin. Elle se trouve à 7 km (en voiture) de la plage et se trouve également proche de l'Etna et de la ville de Taormine.

Nager en regardant le volcan fumer est une expérience inédite en ce qui nous concerne ! Je recommande cette location qui se trouve hors des grosses stations touristiques.

Owner's Response: Grazie MARC, è stato un vero piacere ospitarvi , posso dire che siete stati gli ospiti ideali. Spero che vi sia rimasto un bel ricordo della Sicilia. Siete sempre i benvenuti ! PS: In realtà , controllando con Google map, casa dista dalla bella spiaggia di Fondachello solo 4,5 chilometri ( 10 minuti di macchina) Dino
