The Sicily region
NEARBY POINTS OF INTEREST:
The location of the house is perfect for visiting the Etna and the Ionian coast of Sicily from Taormina to Syracuse, allowing you, in all seasons, a trip to Etna, the highest volcano in Europe, recently nominated by UNESCO as World Heritage Site for its uniqueness and natural importance.
Arriving in the summer, it will be pleasant to spend a day among the Etnaland waterslides, adventure parks or even nearby Mount Etna.
Just a short distance (about fifteen miles) will separate you from the beautiful white sand beaches of Plaja of Catania or the black lava cliffs of Etna.
Nicolosi is able to offer much to those who practice the sport, providing hiking lovers beautiful trails inside the Etna Regional Park and, in winter, the slopes of the volcano. Etna is also a popular destination for lovers of ski mountaineering.
The house is very close to the "Red Mountains", ancient volcanic cones now covered with a pine forest. The "Red Mountains" can be reached on foot, and nearby there are riding stables, swimming pool, sports fields and facilities.

"A great touring base at the foot of Mount Etna"
We spent a pleasant holiday in December 2013 at "Melograno". The modestly priced ground-floor apartment comprises one main room with two 80cm single beds placed side by side to make a double, with metal office cabinets used as bedside tables, an extra put-you-up bed which is normally used as a chair, a kitchen table and three basic kitchen chairs (more comfortable than the ones shown in the website pictures), a small kitchenette, with two hotplates and a separate grill. Equipment and furniture (seemingly all from IKEA) had been kept to a minimum, so this is not an apartment to spend time sitting around in comfort or doing more elaborate cooking, but it is obviously intended to be a base for sleeping, especially in the summer. There is a lovely modern bathroom attached. The small TV, which receives only Italian programmes, was set fairly high up on the wall opposite the bed. The apartment was beautifully warm, but rather dimly lit. The only source of natural light was the corner entrance door/window. It has access to a little terrace and garden, which would be lovely in the summer. It was possible to hear the neighbours in the adjoining apartments, particularly the crying baby. The sound of Etna erupting at night was strangely comforting!
There was not much in the way of nearby restaurants or other facilities for tourists, but there were a couple of pizzerias. A car is essential, as public transport is scarce. A satnav is important. Etna is but a short drive away.
The owners, who live next door, are delightful people and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to supply anything that we needed, like adapters for plugs and a laptop with dongle when the Wifi was not working properly. They were happy to chat at length (in Italian, althought they do speak English) and explain about the nearby sights and facilities, and they really contributed greatly to the enjoyment of our holiday. All in all hightly recommended and excellent value for money.
