Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment


About the property

1 Bedroom,1 Bath, Sleeps 3

Valle Alcantara, near Taormina. In one of the most goergious valley in Sicily. Small apartment build in the old walls of an ancien medieval castle.

Motta Camastra is an old medieval town at the slopes of Etna volcano. Very characteristic, it is a village built on the rocks of a hill overlooking the Alcantara Valley. The valley is famous for its river flowing into the gorges of volcanic rock.

Motta Camastra is only a 15-20 minute drive away from Giardini Naxos and 30-40 minutes from Taormina. The airport is reachable in less than an hour by car.

The atmosphere of the apartment and the small village is unique.

The people, the landscape, the narrow streets, the typical houses will make you breathing the air of old Sicily.

For sure!

And if you are lucky enough to be here during one of the celebrations of the town, you will see the emotions that our traditions can transmit.

Satellite TV and cleaning service included.

All you'd need in one lovely flat

  • 5 of 5

To be honest, we were initially afraid to drive up the hills to reach Motta Camastra, but it was our last stop in our two-week Sicilia trip, and my husband had garnered good experience in Noto and in the hill towns of the Madonie, so he had enough courage to proceed. The drive was well rewarded. The apartment is a lovely one and is nicely situated for a walk through the interesting old town, with its winding streets and breathtaking views. We also enjoyed the church bells ringing the quarter hours throughout the day. The host's mother-in-law met us with a gracious welcome and fresh fruit. Although we stayed only one night, we had a long walk, watched some kids playing soccer and riding bikes up near the school, and enjoyed meeting kind shopkeepers who helped us get food. Amazingly, knowing only a few words in Italian made such a difference, and smiles speak a universal language.

der mittelalterliche Ort, wie ein Schwalbennest am Berg, ist was für Liebhaber für so ein Flair, weniger für Urlauber, die auf toristische Infrastruktur setzen. Die FeWo war gut, die Eltern der Vermieterin wohnen vor Ort und waren ausgesprochen nett, brachten uns Trauben, Nüsse, Tomaen und wein aus ihrer Wirtschaft; super Ausgangspunkt für Unternehmungen Richtung Norf-Ätna, Acantara-Schlucht, Taormina ...
