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.

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
