This place is pretty good! We stayed here in the beginning of October, and as the weather wasn't quite that good, we made a lot of use of the jacuzzi. The pool is located greatly in the gardens, but it was too cold for us. The house is great: spacious, clean and a fine kitchen. There are a couple of restaurants nearby, but Filip or Trente will tell you :). Shops, ATM's and so on are pretty close, but the house is located very quietly out of any town. All the communication went well, even in Dutch when needed! We hired a Fiat 500 cabrio, which wasn't able to get up to the house straight from Piedimonte, but we had to drive via Presa (as mentioned in the route description). The road is very steep and small, but not a problem at all! There is no Wifi (as mentioned in the description), so we used our 4g cellphones for internet and it worked fine, but network connection was not a stable as we used to have in the Netherlands. But not a big thing at all. This place is situated perfectly for day trips to Nebrodi, Taormina, Syracuse, Catania, Acireale and of course several beaches and the Etna. We hired a guide for a hike on the southern slopes and I would recommend it to everyone. From the house you can really easily explore the north by yourself.

We (2 adults and three children; 7,8 and 15 years) had a truly wonderful stay in Trente's and Filip's house. The location, very calm area in the countryside while still only 15 mins from the sea, was perfect for us. The surrounding olive orchard was a real haven for us - it became our Shangri-La during our stay. A place to contemplate for us and to play and discover things for the kids. House was perfectly fine and although the pool was too cold this time of year (late October), the jaccuzi was much appreciated by everyone. Trente and Filip were also great hosts; friendly, helpful and very nice in every way! Staying here does require a rental car though, as it is truly "off the path". Fantastic place. Thanks Trente and Filip!

The house is fantastic. We haven't seen a lot of Sicily as we preferred to stay at home enjoying the pool and yakuzi. The place is very quit and just a few cars passing by per day. Only the dogs further a way disturb the silence but you will find this everywhere on the country side. The facility is not completely new but absolutely fine. Trente and Filip were very friendly and easy to deal with. We would definitely book this house again.

A wonderful spot to get away from it all and immerse yourself in the Sicilian countryside. We enjoyed using the house as a base to explore Mt Etna and surrounds from. Recommend making a trip to local wineries for tastings and visiting Randazzo for a meal at the brilliant Il Drago. On sunny days the pool and surrounds are lovely to relax in, and the outdoor wood-fire stove can be fired up with delicious results. Phillip and Trente are great hosts who ensured we had everything we needed, and generously offered a tasting of wine from their own vineyard.

Beeeeatiful house in mountain of Etna overlooking stunning hills.. and far way Taormina.. We were there with our 3 kids and had a lovely time. We loved the SILENCE.. And the pool and jacussi in the evening.. Good beds.. Clean.. Cooked outside every night.. Loved Being completely alone.. We could go aroun naked 7 days :-) 5 min drive and you have supermarkets and bars.. And a nice local beach just 15 in car. We would recommend this for sure!!!
