Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Mascali

Thanks to our favourable location, our guests can get to the high mountain in half an hour and enjoy a beautiful daytrip on the Etna volcano, with its stunning incandescent lava and its inebriating scent of blooms; the charming Taormina is just 20 minutes away and is worth the visit. You will never forget the Sicilian sun and sea! The crystal clear waters, the scent of algae, the cold currents that flow near the Fiumefreddo river, the wonderful Etna with its plume of smoke, the beaches of the area where you can swim freely, and more besides. Just a few kilometres away you will find some typical shops where you can buy clothes or souvenirs (for little money), especially in Giarre. The Sicilian nights are very magic in Giardini Naxos or Taormina: discos, pubs, night clubs… until the early hours. The breakfasts in Fondachello are very special: snow cones and typical Sicilian sweets will make your day! Do not miss the local seafood and Ionian fish dishes for lunch/dinner: seafood platter, seafood spaghetti with, and delicious mixed grill with mint or fresh oregano! You will never forget the almond pastries, the cannoli made with ricotta cheese and chocolate, and finally the Sicilian cassata! Fondachello is an ancient village of sailors and is a very welcoming place for tourists.

Why Salvatore Mauro chose Catania

The house is situated in an elegant residence close to the waves. The large walkways surrounded by flowering gardens, the 2 big swimming pools, and the solarium make the residence one of the most beautiful private housing estates in the area. The flat is composed of a big living room with a large glass rollaway sliding door, a bright sitting area with bookcase and sofa bed, a kitchen with dining area, one crystal table, and ebony cane chairs. The bedroom is very large, air-conditioned and has Mediterranean-style furniture. The bathroom that has a shower, sink, and bidet is very comfortable. It is near the laundry room with washing machine and water heater. Both the entrance and the dining room have 2 large glass doors overlooking 2 balconies, here you can dine in a very secluded atmosphere. The most beautiful part of the house is the terrace, you reach it via a stunning spiral staircase. The 100-sq. m green terrace is equipped with a big iron and wooden gazebo, a comfortable outdoor sitting room, a stone barbecue where you can grill your meals in summer! From the terrace, you can admire a stunning panorama of the Etna volcano and the villages nearby, as well as the Gulf of Taormina to the north. You can relax on your private terrace during the hottest days, reading a book, listening to music, or simply sunbathing.

Fondachello Di Mascali: Holiday House 'Il Corallo'
average rating of 3.0 based on 1 reviews

Wohnung mit Mängeln...Pool nicht benutzbar...

  • 3 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung liegt sehr nah und 3 min. zum Meer entfernt. Die drei Terrassen waren sehr verschmutzt und wurden von uns gesäubert.Ansonsten toll sie benutzen zu können. Die Küche, inkl.Besteck, Geschirr, Gläser,Töpfe waren verschmutzt, wir mussten erst alles spülen. Die Toilette hat eine Holzbrille, die abgesplittert ist. Die Duschkabine ist zu klein und sehr eng und die Duschtasse war ekelerregend verschimmelt. Diese muss dringendst ausgetauscht werden. Der Pool wurde erst am Ende der ersten Woche gereinigt und war für uns nicht zu benutzen, da das Wasser anschließend tagelang hineinplätscherte.Es gab keine Information durch den Vermieter!Bis zur Abreise nach 14 Tagen war er nicht voll.Sehr schade! Ansonsten sollte der Eigentümer die Handtücher mal erneuern und darauf achten, dass die Wohnung ordentlich gereinigt wird, bevor Gäste kommen. Wir haben uns trotzdem sehr wohl gefühlt, Sizilien ist toll, würden aber diese Wohnung nicht noch einmal mieten.
