About Giovanni E.
Hi there :) I'm Giovanni Emmanuele from Sicily,I'm a student of Economy at the University of Catania and I'm really interested in Business Management and Tourism. I really love my 'Island' and I think that you, reader, will love it too :). Weather here is fantastic, not too cold in winter neither too hot in summer (just perfect). We have the beach 10 minutes faraway (from were I live) and the Mt.Etna (were you can also ski in winter) 30 minutes away by car.I love to travel and I've been traveling 'enough' to understand how things works abroad. I also love to learn new things and I'm curious of everything around me. this is why I'm trying to run my own business here in Sicily, land of the sun, beaches and mountains, and also work with tourism. I will do everything is possible to make your stay here in Sicily, unique and adorable and hope to see here in my houses. Giovanni.
Giovanni E. purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Giovanni E. chose Fondachello
The Villa is in a perfect position, just in front of the beach and within a few kilometers from the most beautiful places worth a visit in the eastern Sicily. From Fondachello (in the town of Mascali) you can easily get to GIARDINI NAXOS and TAORMINA in less then 15/20min by Car. Catania is reachable in 30min. You can be in the natural park of Mt.Etna in 20min (starting from the house that is on the beach and the thing that you can have both beach and mountain is such small time is awesome). The Villa is also completely independent and our guests always loved it. We start in 2012 renting our Villa trying with a few weeks but then we saw how guests were enthusiastic about the area and the Villa that we choose to rent it during the whole year and also rent some other exclusive property that belong to us.
What makes this Villa unique
A waterfront villa: the pebbles beach is just crossing the street. In summer time we will be glad to offer you * entry + umbrella + beds * at Lido Luna Rossa' bathhouse located within walking distance, where you can access all services for all the duration of your stay . The villa is perfect to host large families or big groups of friends (till sixteen people). The cycle line is just crossing the street along all the waterfront.

Glorious villa with gorgeous garden.
It's very glorious villa for a big company. A lot of nice space inside and outside. The house is equipped with all necessary things.
We were not lucky with the weather and friendly host helped us to find a solution. Thank you Giovanni.
"Everything was perfect. ...
"Everything was perfect. A gift basket was waiting for us, so lovely! We were 7 adults and we had enough place to live, enough hot water etc... Giovanni is very welcoming and available when it''s needed. We had fun together! I highly recommend."
"Staying at Fondachello V...
"Staying at Fondachello Villa was excellent.
We were 4 adults + 1 baby.
The house has many spacious rooms, good kitchen, good shower with hot water, close to the beach with a good view from the balcony.
Everyone had their own space.
Giovanni took care of anything we needed.
They supplied a basket of great fruits, and things they make (tomato sauce, pastries, wine).
We stayed at 3 different locations in Sicily, and this one had the best value for our money.
Villa Luna Rossa a Wonderful Place to Stay
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Luna Rossa. Giovanni and his team were very helpful for everything we needed and they ensured we had an amazing stay in Sicily. The villa is minutes away from the beach with access to the Lido Luna Rossa beach resort which was very comfortable/beautiful. The villa is modern with full amenities and has everything you would need for a great beach vacation in Sicily. Also, very quick access to Taormina and Catania. We loved our time here and would definitely go back. Thank-you Giovanni and Team!!!!
Villa correcte et spacieuse, mais quelques défauts
Nous avons passé une semaine à deux familles (3 adultes, 6 enfants) à la villa Luna Rossa. Elle a indéniablement des qualités, mais aussi quelques défauts.
Pour les qualités:
1) Elle est très proche de la plage, il suffit de traverser la route devant la maison, et on a accès à une plage privée et une petite plage publique. La location de la maison donne accès gratuitement à la plage privée (parasol, transat), ce qui est bien pratique. La mer est très belle, c'est une plage de galets agréable. Mais il y a pas mal de monde. Cela dit, l'ambiance est relax et familiale, et c'est sympathique, on nage avec vue sur l'Etna, c'est agréable.
2) La région permet de combiner balades en montagne sur l'Etna et plage, activités de canyoning, et quelques villes agréables, dont Taormina. On ne s'ennuie donc pas en une semaine !
3) La maison possède un jardin assez sympathique, avec de l'herbe, de l'ombre, une piscine hors-sol dont profitent bien les enfants et les plus grands, un barbecue, une table extérieure sous les vignes, une cuisine et frigo extérieurs.
4) la maison est assez spacieuse, avec une belle terrasse sur le toit qui donne vue sur l'Etna et (un peu) sur la mer, mais aussi sur la route.
5) la maison est dans l'ensemble bien équipée.
Concernant les défauts, ou aspects moins agréables:
1) la localisation est assez bruyante. Il y a du trafic sur la route, de la musique dans les bars de la plage, un parking à l'arrière de la maison, etc... on a rarement une nuit tranquille, et le week-end est très bruyant. Difficile de dormir avec les fenêtres ouvertes, et donc il fait chaud (cela dit, il y a la climatisation si nécessaire).
2) Il y a beaucoup de fourmis dans et autour de la maison: dans les chambres, dans le four, dans le hamac,... difficile de profiter pleinement du jardin.
3) La maison est assez humide, et pas très adaptée aux asthmatiques. Le mobilier n'est pas bien entretenu (parasol cassé)
4) Elle est annoncée pour 15 personnes, mais il y a 4 chambres. En réalité, c'est plutôt adapté à 8-10 personnes. La table de la terrasse est adaptée à 6-7 personnes.
5) Bien que plutôt spacieuse, la maison n'est pas très pratique, avec sa cuisine à l'étage.
Dans l'ensemble nous avons passé une semaine agréable, mais pour ce prix, je pense qu'il est possible de trouver une maison mieux entretenue et plus calme. Néanmoins, si le bruit et les fourmis ne vous dérangent pas, et que vous voulez être près de la mer et de l'Etna, c'est une maison sympathique.
Cher Bruno, merci pour votre commentaire si détaillé, toutes vos suggestions sont très importantes pour toujours améliorer nos services.
Je vais d’abord m’excuser pour le problème des fourmis, qu’on vient de résoudre grâce à une désinsectisation bien soignée. Je suis vraiment désolée que cet inconvénient vous a dans quelque mesure embêté. On a aussi remplacé le parasol cassé sur la terrasse et pour la prochaine saison nous avons prévu des travaux de rénovation de la maison (à juin on a déjà renouvelé tous les deux salles de bains et on a ajouté la piscine) pour rendre le séjour chez nous parfait! Le but de notre équipe est celui de faire toujours mieux! Comme vous avez souligné, la maison et le jardin sont très grands et même si il y a seulement 4 chambres, elles sont très spacieuses pour loger 13-14 personnes en total (dans le séjour il y a aussi un canapé-lit). La proximité à la mer et à la plage privée, où on est heureux d’accueillir gratuitement tous nos hôtes, est sans doute le point fort de la villa, dans une position idéale pour profiter au maximum d’une vacance en Sicile! Cela dit, je vous remercie encore une fois pour avoir choisi notre maison… ce sera un vrai plaisir de vous avoir à nouveau comme nos hôtes ici à Villa Luna Rossa ! :) A presto ! Team SunTripSicily
We had a great week in this fabulous spacious villa, although to be fair we only went indoors to sleep and to fetch something from the fridge! The garden is perfect for outdoor living and we had great weather for it. There is lots of shade under trees and the pergola when it gets too hot and an open lawn area with sun beds for those wanting to scorch. The little swimming pool was very welcome and we used it a lot for cooling off on the hottest days in the garden. We didn't have children with us, but there is a mini playground in the corner of the garden which youngsters will enjoy. There is an outdoor kitchen and a brick barbecue in the garden which we used a couple of evenings, sitting out in shorts and t-shirts till midnight. The views of Etna from the terrace off the kitchen upstairs are simply stunning. Expect some pops and rumbles and you'll find yourself checking her for changes in colour and quantity of smoke all holiday. Keep the air con on indoors all the time, otherwise you will get ants. They were the only irritation, apart from fireworks that seem to go off at all hours for no apparent reason, and the garden backs onto a car park, which occasionally is a bit noisy if you are quietly reading a book in the shade. Giovanni will arrange for taxis or bicycle hire if, like us, you do not want to hire a car. You are within walking distance of several shops and restaurants, particularly to the north. I would also recommend eating at Le Botti in Riposto overlooking the sea. And you must have a trip to the amphitheatre in Taormina, if only for the views of the coastline - you need to climb to the top where a path runs around the building. I would also recommend a 4x4 trip up Etna if you are fit enough for the walking – my daughters/husband really enjoyed this. Giovanni can arrange if you wish. The Lido opposite the house is great if you are into a grid of sunbeds and line dancing in a bikini (can you tell I am not?!). Good fun I'm sure, with the right crowd. One last thing, between the Lidos the Sicilians should be ASHAMED of the rubbish they leave on the beaches.
Villa Luna Rossa occupies an idyllic position in front of the beach with a superb view of the Mount Etna. It is in Fondachello di Mascali, a sea village between Catania and Taormina.
