Why cinzia petucco chose Mascali
We bought this apartment in 2007 because we love the peaceful location in the countryside, the amazing view of MtEtna and at the same time the proximity to the beautiful beach and the easy access. We furnished it carefully and tried to make it as comfortable and cosy as it were our family house. We have accommodated a lot of people till now and had the pleasure to see some of them coming back for the third time.
What makes this Apartment unique

Nice appartment but poor sofa
The appartment overall is nice : clean, good location and Cinzia and her husband are very friendly.
It is a shame that the sofa is aweful, even with the additional mattress. We had to put the additional mattress on the floor to get an acceptable "bed".
Otherwise there are many area around that are great place to visit.. especially Etna ☺
It's worth the trip !
Thank you for your lovely review,we are glad to hear that you enjoyed our apartment and had a nice stay. We are sorry you found the sofa bed uncomfortable, but let me say this is the first time we get a complaint about this ,anyway, as we always try to improve the service we offer, are planning to buy a new one, thank you for your advice. We are looking forward to welcoming you back again soon.
