Check In
The location is breathtaking. Beautiful views of old winefields and wilderness. When the weather is bright you can look very far, which is very beautiful at night. The accomodation is great! It's neat and clean. Davide, the host, is very kind and hospitable. He provided us with tips for diner, sightseeing etc. You can walk to the village Presa. If you want to go to Piedimonte for groceries or diner and you don't want to go by car, it's handy to rent bikes at Davide before arrival.

We had a nice stay at Davide's garden loft! He and his friend were inviting us to diner, it was a great pleasure to get to know Davide's passionate project, we had a very pleasant evening. It was easy to get lost by arrival because the house is in the middle of nature, if you want to have a off city vacation, it's a very nice place to stay. Thanks again for the host, hope to see you soon! Lucie

Davide is a great host. He took good care of us and made us feel welcome even though we arrived very late. The place is really unique. Davide restaurated the old houses very good and built beautiful terraces from which you can see the etna. In the evening this is really spectacular, because you can see the lava. It's a very quite and peaceful place surrounded by nothing then nature. To make it short, it's the most beautiful place I have ever been in my entire life and I will come back there. 100% recommended

Cool place and cool people. Valentina and Davide are very kind and helpful. The access road is a little bumpy but we made it without problem on a fiat 500. The location is perfect for exploring Taormina and the Etna. Davide's wine is also very good, do not miss the chance to try it.
