My husband and his friend are very keen cyclists and the location of this property is perfect for exploring the Etna area, either by bike or for walkers/hikers. It is perfectly equipped and has everything you could possibly need. The view from the balcony is beautiful with the sea on one side and the mountains on the other. The owner, Susan, was extremely helpful both before they traveled and when they were at the property.
This property is set up in the hills with spectacular views to the sea one way and mount etna the other. We were unfortunate to pick the wettest week of the year, but with the cosy stove in the lounge, which also heats the radiators around the house, this was not a problem. We were greeted with some fresh bread, local cheeses, olives and the owner's own olive oil. A delicious snack rounded off with a bottle of the owner's own wine. The villa is down an unmade track, but although this looked quite scary, our hired corsa coped very well with it. The air is slightly cooler up in the hills, so apparently this is ideal in the very hot summer months. There is a lovely garden with a barbecue - but unfortunately we did not have the weather to enable us to enjoy it.
