"Airy, clean, super host"

A large spacious apartment (there were only two of us). Good local shops and road-side fruit and veg vendors within easy reach. Station (for Catania, Taormina etc.) walkable. Easy drive to Etna area. … More

Thank you Helen and Will for your positive review. You are excellent and pleasing guests. Have you again in our apartment, it will be a pleasure. Have you nice days!

"A nice place to feel like home"

My husband and I spent a very pleasant time last December in “Casa Iolanda”.
We have been welcomed in a very well organized and clean house with two balconies overlooking the sea on one side and Mount Etna on the other. The house offered plenty of necessary equipments to make our stay even more comfortable and relaxing. It is located on a main street with loads of handy shops (supermarkets, fish market, patisserie and restaurants) nearby and at a walking distance. However if you also prefer to travel by car the house provides a convenient private secured parking space.
Don't miss a trip to Mount Etna (an active volcano which it happens to show up with spectacular eruptions quite often- not during my trip though, what a shame!! ) and to the small villages around.
I would definitely recommend this place to everyone and would repeat this experience in summer time to enjoy the sun and all the beaches around.

Graziana, thanks for the compliments. It was a pleasure to meet you and it will be wonderful to see you again next summer, do not miss it.
Bye Bye

Ciao ragazzi, siamo molto contenti che i bambini si siano divertiti in spiaggia. Grazie per la recensione positiva, fa piacere aver avuto ospiti soddisfatti.
Un abbraccio
