Fantastic house with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The four of us enjoyed our visit to Casa Nel Paradiso immensely. The modern house is in a stunning hillside location with spectacular views to the coast, even from the swimming pool immediately in front of the living room and terrace. The house is superbly equipped, and was spotlessly clean and well-appointed. We wanted for nothing. We visited the adjacent Pizzeria Bellavista (invisible and inaudible from the house) twice - the food and service were excellent and the prices extremely modest. The local people were exceedingly friendly (we were often recognised out and about by locals - including the local school bus driver and a policeman), particularly the couple that ran the supermarket in Sfaranda (who kindly booked us a restaurant table and, later, provided free coffee too!!) and the owners of the excellent Trattoria Braco in the same village where we enjoyed a never-ending stream of anti-pasti dishes, pizza and wine, with charming and attentive service from our hosts. There was no menu or price list, but we paid a mere 85 Euros for 4 people, including several litres of good local wine! A bargain.

The nearest beach resort, at Capo D'Orlando (about 40 minutes drive), is beautiful with amazing views of the Aeolian Islands offshore. It's an upmarket town with a gorgeous promenade and a long, free beach. We also visited the nearbly Floresta, reputedly the highest village in Sicily, which is slightly more Alpine and provides excellent views of Mount Etna.

We cannot criticise Casa Nel Paradiso in any way and would thoroughly recommend it - however, we should point out that the drive up to the house (and indeed driving in Sicily) is not for the faint-hearted, it is very steep, narrow and twisting with precipitous drops. An automatic car is recommended, together with fully-comp insurance and every damage waiver you can get!!

Beautiful house with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Well-equipped, spacious house with your own private swimming pool. We really enjoyed the location up in the hill away from it all (but still pizza and supermarket nearby).

When going here from Palermo, use Walters directions and not Google maps (that will guide you to really, REALLY, narrow and steep roads).

Altogether we can only recommend renting Walter's place for your vacation.

Ein Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten 7 wundervolle Tage in diesem toll gelegenen Paradies. Hoher Erholungsfaktor. Jeden Abend den Sonnenuntergang zu erleben, einfach fantastisch. Das Haus ist sehr schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, und sehr gepflegt, es fehlt an gar nichts. Der wunderbare Umschwung mit Pool.....wir waren begeistert. Die ganze Abwicklung mit dem Vermieter war sehr effizient, unkompliziert sowie sympathisch. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall gerne wieder.

Es fehlt nichts...

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine wunderschöne sonnige Woche in diesem angenehmen Ferienhaus. Es ist ruhig gelegen mit einem tollen Meerblick. Erfrischend, besonders am Morgen, ist der beheizte Pool. In der direkten Nachbarschaft ist eine klasse Pizzeria, die allerdings weder Gerüche noch Lärm verursacht. Man kann sich sein Abendessen quasi direkt auf die eigene Terrasse holen. Die Einrichtung des Hauses ist bis ins Detail durchdacht und es fehlt an buchstäblich nichts. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Tolles Wohlfühlhaus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist eine absolute Wohlfühloase. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet. Es ist wirklich alles vorhanden, was man braucht und alles ist super sauber!

Wir haben uns von Anfang an total wohl gefühlt. Im Haus und auf dem Grundstück mit dem Garten und natürlich an dem schönen Pool kann man wunderbar entspannen. Wir haben 16 tolle Tage in diesem Haus verbracht und uns dabei bestens erholt.

Erwähnenswert ist auch die absolute Ruhe auf dem Grundstück.

Die Abwicklung mit den Vermietern lief unkompliziert und problemlos. Es sind sehr freundliche, hilfsbereite und nette Eigentümer.

Wir können das Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen und kommen gerne wieder!
