Wonderful place for a summer vacation for up to 4 pex with a direct access to the sea. It is a great choice both for a seaside relaxation and as a starting point to explore the Sicilian east coast. Etna, Catania, Taormina are a short drive away

The space

Our lovely 2 bedroom house has direct access to the sea/ a volcanic beach (scogliera), located in the middle of the Ionian riviera, it is ideal for a family of 2-4 people. The house is separate, there is nobody else in it, so all the place is for you.

The strong points of this house are:

*Your own house with a small flourishing garden
You'll have two lemon trees, basilic and flowers planted just for you. Nobody else in this building (unlike most of the other options - apartments in the shared residential buildings).
Privacy, dinners outside under the lemon tree, lounge and sunbathe area, secured prviate parking - all for you

*Very close to the sea
You can go for your first plunge in the day just in a swimming suit - so close it is. If you come for a summer/seaside vacation you may not need anything but a swimming suit for the whole period of your stay. The crystal clean waters are just a few steps away.

*Cooking and eating outside - if you don't like the smell of food in the house, you can cook at our summer kitchen which is in full function and is outside the house - oven, grill for the bbq, table for cooking - everything you may need. The other kitchen which is inside, is also fully equipped.

*In summer months (especially July and August) the neighbourhood becomes very lively and many families come there with children. If you have children 2-12 y.o., it is an ideal place for them to make new friends and you will not be bothered about their leasure time - you can be sure your kid will speak Italian in a week's time! Everyone in the neighbourhood is very welcoming and children play safe altogether from morning till evening

Guest access

House, bbq zone, garden/terrace, direct semi-private access to the beach, reserved and safe parking.

You will be completely independent in this house and enjoy maximum privacy. You can expect a perfect romantic vacation or a great family holiday where both you and your kids will have a wonderful time.

Interaction with guests

We'll be happy to anwer all your questions and help you plan a wonderful vacation.
During your stay we'll be available 24/7 for emergency.
For anything out of order please let us know ASAP, we will do everything to fix the issue immediately.

Other things to note

*In most cases we can also organise the transfer to/from the airport for an additional payment. Please contact us for details. Arriving with public transport is difficult, we do not recommend counting on this option.

*If you have no idea of what volcanic beach ('scogliera') is, please check either the photos or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) the images of it - it is not a sandy beach and the beach in a traditional way of thinking. The closest sandy beach is about 20 km away.

*Both bedrooms are double rooms. There is an extra single bed in the living room in case two double beds are not enough.

*The house is equipped with everything basic and necessary for a comfortable living. However, if you have any special request or question - please check with us.

*We provide you with the bedsheets and towels. If you stay more than a week we also provide you with a change for the bed linen. We can organise a daily/weekly cleaning or towels/ bed linen change upon request for an additional charge. Alternatively, there is a washing machine that you can use.

*We provide you with a portable modem and a sim-card for Internet which you can use during your stay, in the house as well as outside. The Internet provided is 100 MB per day only. The cost for loosing or breaking the modem is 120 Euro.

*We can help organise tours upon request.

The house is very nice and very well placed : just near the sea and closed to the places to see (Etna, Catania, Syracuse...). Oksana and her friend were really helpful when we arrived. We really enjoyed our trip here. Thanks to Oksana.

The bungalow style apartment was a safe and peaceful haven in a non touristic flooded location with an ideal rock pool to swim in every morning and evening. The property and amenities provided a great base for us and both hosts were very helpful and gracious. For those who enjoy fresh fish,there is an abundance of great restaurants that aren't priced to rip off the tourists.

The house provided by Francesco and Oksana was very nice. Closed private territory, lemon trees and 50 meters to the sea. When it's not high season, there is literally no one there and you enjoy the Sicilian nature face to face. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. This location is especially good for travelers with a car - safe parking and proximity to all the Western Sicily coast must-see places. The interior of the house is also nice, not quite modern but very cosy. We really enjoyed our stay at Francesco and Oksana's place!

Oksana and Francesco were caring and attentive hosts and provided us with usefull information about Sicily and even a wireless portable internet router while staying in Sicily. Their place was overall very good value for money and location is really nice if you want to combine easy access to the sea with abiilty to reach main tourist attractions within a short period in time. Visiting Sicily in October is recommended and our kind hosts did their utmost to provide us with relevant information and accomodate our needs.

We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful summer house among lemon trees with only 100 metres walk to the sea on a private condominium road ! Nice location near the small town Santa Tecla in about 15 min walk or 3 min drive. There is quite big supermarket so we could buy some food to cook at home - all the facilities are provided. In the evening we enjoyed pizza and local vine in one of the pizza places with the sea view. Convenient place to drive to Taormina, Siracuse, Catania as autostrade is easily achived by car. We parked car just in the yard near the house so had no worries about any damage though the area seems to be very quite and safe. The only thing we missed was good internet connection though it is not that important when you're on vacations with your family:) We wish we could stay longer in this house as Francesco and his wife Oksana are very open and warmly welcoming hosts! They cared about any detail (even bought grill when we asked if they have it for barbeque!!!) or question we had and really tried to make our stay unforgetable. We could always reach them by phone when we had questions and gave useful advices on where to go or what do to:) very good english was very important for us as it seemed to be quite rare among italians:)
