This property is very special. With ocean access and views of a Volcano, and a pool out of a movie scene.

Beautiful house in a peaceful location. Extensive gardens and big swimming pool. We (6 adults and a baby) spent a week in April in this house and thouroughly enjoyed.

This was a perfect house for a family vacation. Beautiful and unique. Very tastefully designed and well equipped. Host was very responsive and accommodating and flexible. Location is great and the pool was amazing. Highly recommended for a group of friends or a big family that likes to spend time together and like to cook together ( amazing kitchen!), but also to have space and quite time when needed.

Perfect place from which to explore Mt Etna and Taormina, as well as surrounding area. The setting was beyond beautiful with amazing views of both the sea and Mt Etna. The rooms were very comfortable and the beds and bedding were lovely. We highly recommend this house and would love to come back.

The hosts were friendly and helpful. The place is wonderfully located offering a view of Etna and the see. The house is really nicely furnished. It is perfect for a longer stay for a big family. A big swimming pool and beautiful greenness make the house very attractive.

Thanks Marco, Guiseppe and Esmeralda for hosting our family holiday in Sicily. With a family reunion of 2 families from Ireland plus grandparents and our family from Australia there was enough space in the large villa for all of us. No one was on top of each other and there were plenty of areas for the kids and adults to have their own spaces. The kids loved the pool and it suited babies and non swimmers in the graduated steps through to more experienced swimmers with the diving board. The kids loved the diving board! The villas share one pool but there is enough space for everyone. The kitchen is perfectly equipped for large gatherings and a real cook's kitchen with sharp knives! Our hosts provided fresh eggs everyday and I loved picking the fresh basil from the garden for the daily bruschetta made with beautifully sweet Sicilian cherry tomatoes. Esmeralda was kind to offer a small separate villa for my in laws to have some of their own space. Each bedroom has air conditioning which we appreciated as the temp was 32-35C with hardly any breeze except for our last day. The supermarket is 15 mins drive and we found a beautiful pizzeria called La Serre only 10 mins away. We swam daily at Stazzo and had our coffee/ gelato at a cute cafe near the small square. The campsite next door was handy for general quick supplies as well as the casual pizzeria with all the kids. The pizzas there were great and well priced. As most of the beaches in the area north of Catania are rocks/ pebbles, I would recommend rubber water slip on shoes for the kids. We bought inflatable pool toys at the supermarket which was fun for the kids. I would highly recommend this accommodation. One of the babies was sick during our stay and Marco was on call and offered to escort us to the hospital if anything worsened. Thank goodness nothing happened but we felt reassured that we could get assistance as we are non Italian speakers. Wishing you all the best for the future.

Esmeralda was very communicative prior to our arrival and was accommodating. The house, being situated in an orange grove is something worthy of note--the oranges and lemons were a wonderful addition to our stay. The location on the ocean with a view of Etna is gorgeous. The kitchen needed some better cooking knives, but otherwise-we had everything we needed--10 adults and a child in the big house with additional friends in the surrounding houses on the property made it the best vacation we have had in many years. Highly recommended--Grazie Esmeralda and Joseph!
