A beautiful, traditional Sicilian house, with spectacular views, in the grounds of the family farm

  • 5 of 5

A great location for seeing some of the region of Etna, and exploring the beautiful countryside and town of Castiglione di Sicilia.

We were given a warm welcome by Ferdinand and Laura, and invited to expresso and local cake in their kitchen within an hour of our arrival! They were always on hand, checking everything was OK, and it was great chatting with them.

The house is spacious, well-equipped and comfortable, a lovely experience of a traditional Sicilian farm house. Beautiful views and peaceful surroundings, we heard the cuckoo many times, and could walk in the grounds of the farm.

Très bon accueil dans une belle propriété au calme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un bon moment chez Laura. C’est un vrai bonheur de nager au milieu de la campagne dans cette Belle piscine bien entretenue. Le logement correspond à la description, la literie est confortable.

Nous avons apprécié l’accueil et les attentions de Laura.

Très bonne adresse

gemütliches Landhaus in vielfältiger, naturnaher Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Das Landhaus liegt in einer wunderbaren, natürlichen und ruhigen Umgebung mit Blick auf den Etna und die umliegenden Weingärten, Olivenhaine und die Ausläufer der Monti Peloritani.

Das Haus ist einfach, aber gemütlich und sehr gut ausgestattet. Laura ist sehr gastfreundlich. Wir hatten nur auf Grund unserer mangelnden Italienischkenntnisse einige Probleme mit der Kommunikation. Auch war es nicht ganz leicht, unsere Unterkunft am ersten Tag zu finden. Am besten mit GPS arbeiten.

Da wir hauptsächlich zum Wandern gekommen waren, war die Lage des Landhauses ideal. Auch konnte man in kurzer Zeit nachTaormina und somit ans Meer gelangen.

Wer Ruhe, Natur und authentisches Sizilien sucht, dem kann ich dieses Domizil nur empfehlen.

Awesome, Lovely, Great!!!

  • 5 of 5

WIr hatten eine supertolle Zeit in diesem wundervollen Haus! Es hat alles was man sich wünscht (bis auf einen Nussknacker ;) - die Lage ist toll, etwas in den Bergen, in völliger Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit, und trotzdem kommt man überall schnell hin. Flughafen ist ca. 1 Std Fahrt... Das Haus ist liebevoll gestaltet und das Grundstück ein Traum! Es wachsen Kräuter, Feigen und Haselnüsse drum herum und der saubere Pool liegt unschlagbar schön im Grünen in der Ruhe mit Blick in die Ferne, auf das Tal und die Berge. Obwohl Nando und Laura nebenan wohnen, bekommt man fast gar nichts von ihnen mit, fast schon zu wenig, weil sie sehr angenehme und freundliche Menschen sind, ebenso Giorgio, der für alle Fragen bereit stand... Wir haben diese Familie sehr ins Herz geschlossen und können das Haus wärmstens weiterempfehlen!
