Beautiful Location and Exactly As Described! A+

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely accommodations, perfectly clean and stocked with necessities. For the price you could not find a better location right next to the sea and walking distance to lots of sights. The owner was available and helpful getting settled in and a delightful person too!

We would definitely stay there again if we can go back. Thank you!

Beste Lage für Ausflüge in die Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Zentrale, dennoch sehr ruhige Lage direkt am Meer. Gut ausgestatte Küche. Selbst Gewürze und Kaffee waren ausreichend vorhanden. Für das Auto ist ein separater, durch ein Tor abschliessbarer Abstellplatz ebenfalls vorhanden.

Antonio war ein angenehmer Vermieter, der sich sehr um seine Gaeste kümmerte ohne aufdringlich zu sein. Auch eine spätere Abreise als geplant war ohne Probleme möglich.

Für den Preis ein sehr gutes Angebot. Ein kleines Manko waren die subjektiv doch sehr harten Kissen des Bettes. Zu bedenken ist auch bei Anreise im Frühjahr, dass die Wohnung über keinen Essbereich ausser auf dem grossen Balkon verfügt und es abends doch sehr kühl werden kann (es gibt aber viele Restaurants in der Nähe). Für Selbstverpfleger in der wärmeren Jahreszeit aber optimal.

Zentrale Wohnung für Erkundung der Insel

  • 5 of 5

Eigentlich wollten wir nur 4 Tage in der Wohnung sein, aber die Wohnung die wir vorher in der Nähe von Palermo gemietet hatten war sanitärmäßig in so einem schlechten Zustand das wir kurzerhand bei Antonio angefragt haben , ob wir einige Tage eher kommen können.

Es kam sofort die Zusage und als wir in dem Ort ankamen stand Antonio schon vor dem Haus und hat auf uns gewartet.Die Begrüßung war gleich sehr herzlich.

Die Wohnung ist klein , aber es ist alles vorhanden was man für einen entspannten Kurzurlaub braucht.Nichts ist nerviger als wenn man für eine Woche alle Kleinigkeiten für die Küche und die Reinigung besorgen muß.Sogar ein Tab für die Waschmaschine , Kaffee, Marmelade und Cornetti für den ersten Tag waren da, von der Flasche Wein und Wasser will ich gar nicht reden.

Also mit einem Wort PRIMA.

Als wir an einem Abend Stromausfall hatten (war unsere Schuld, wir hatten zuviel Elektrogeräte auf einmal angestellt ) ist Antonion extra aus Catania gekommen um uns zu helfen.

Sollten wir noch einmal in diese Gegend kommen würden wir die Wohnung wieder mieten.

Danke für alles, auch für die Spontanität bei unserem Wohnungswechsel

Gabi und Claus aus Hamburg

Caro Antonino abbiamo trascorso una bella vacanza a Riposto. Ci hai accolto con molto entusiasmo, gentilezza e disponibilita'. Appartamento perfetto per due persone, pulitissimo e

con tutto l'occorrente. Molto accogliente la cucina provvista di tutto, una bella sorpresa il NERO D'AVOLA gia' fresco in frigo :-). Terrazza vista a mare. Il condominio ha un parcheggio interno. Spiaggia, mercato della frutta, verdura e pesce, panetteria, mini market e stazione ferroviaria sono raggiungibili a piedi in pochi minuti. Dal paese si vede l'etna. Riposto e' situato in una ottima posizione per fare diverse escursioni.

Grazie Antonino per la tua cordialita' e disponibilita', arrivederci a presto

Dario e Anna.


Caro Antonino

Wir haben einen sehr schönen Urlaub auf Riposto erlebt. Du hast uns mit sehr viel Herzlichkeit, Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft empfangen. Perfekte Wohnung für 2 Personen, sehr sauber und mit allem Ausgestattet. Es hat an nichts gefehlt. Eine gemütliche Küche mit großem Herd und Waschmaschine. Selbst der bereits gekühlte Nero D'avola stand bereit ;-). Ein privater Parkplatz ist in der Anlage vorhanden. Strand, Mini Market, Frichmarkt für Obst, Gemüse und Fisch, Bäckerei und Bahnhof sind in wenigen Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar. Vom Ort aus ist der Ätna in seiner vollen Pracht zu sehen. Riposto ist ein sehr guter Ausgangspunkt für Tageausflüge (Etna, Taormina, Catania, Gole di Alcantara... und mehr).

Antonino grazie für deine Herzlichkeit und Gastfreundschaftlichkeit.

Arrivederci bis zum nächsten mal.

Dario e Anna
