Viagrande

Viagrande is an Italian town. It is a village of ancient traditions, famous for its vineyards and its gastronomy. The “Gran Caffè Urna”, in fact, is a point of reference for citizens and for all those who want to taste the specialties of the ancient cooking tradition of the place.

"Not what we expected"

The house is spacious, very well-equipped and very clean. It has all the amenities we required except for a kettle which was provided when we asked. There is a lovely view of Etna. The lawned area is … More

Thank you for the appreciations for the cleannes of the house and for our kindness. We want to underline that for us it is very important to receive suggestions from our guests; this gets us to improve our facility! However, we are really sorry for the costernation you showed. As a matter of fact we think that many things written are false and derogatory.

First of all we confirm that there is a building work place near the holiday home. Actually when our guests booked the home we didn'd know building work will be last until their stay. However we couldn't stop them for some burocratics problems. But we tried to reduce noises and to don't make noise during the rest time. What is more we asked sorry many times and we offered to give back part of the amount paied for the stay.

Secondly, the swimming pool is a 7,40 x 4,80 swimming pool. This is bigger than the one represented on the photo of the website at the time of you did reservation.

As for rats and dogs: "Rat" is probably a little mouse living in the country ( not a rubbish rat ). Our guests spend many time in our garden but it is the first time we hear about this! However our holiday home is situated in the country and for this reason we, periodically make the deratization of the whole territory. And please...."jumping rats" they are sure nice harmless ferrets!!!

As for dogs, it is true that in the surroundings there are some dogs, but we have never received any complain about them in the past.
Then, it is untrue that our structure "is not located in the country more in the exteded suburbs of catania": infact the suburb of Catania is far away at least 15 km from our location and our house is located in the middle of an ancient vineyard, at the foot of an old volcano just next to the "Monteserra park". However it is true that in the surroundings there are some modern detached house!

What is more they say that "in the surroundigs there are little thing to see". If you spend all of your time closed at home it is impossible to discover the surroundings. Infact just in front of our house there is the really interesting "Etna Museum", and the "Monteserra park" with the "House of Butterfly". And then, in 10/20 minutes by car you can reach some beautiful villages such as Trecastagni, Zafferana, Acireale and its "barocco"the "Timpa" and many little villages near the sea: Santa Tecla, Santa Maria La Scala, Acitrezza, Acicastello. And a little far away Catania, Taormina, Siracusa, Ortigia, Noto etc etc.

Finally, you use words such as "cheated" and "pretty drab" that are extremely offensive for us! We are honest people and we have never received any complain about our structure, as a matter of fact with our great pleasure the reviews our guests wrote on the web sites "holidayletting.com" "tripadvisor.com" and more of all "homeaway.com" ARE ALL "FIVE STARS".

Taking everything into consideration we feel to agree with the title given to this review “not what we expected” because it is obvious that you had a completely different ideas of what was our holiday house, however we don't know where this difference of expectations came because we make a and accurate description of our facility also on the website you used to make the reservation.

In the end we wish you find in the future solutions more appropriate to your needs.

Sincerely

Casa vacanze Dietroserra

"NATURA E ARTE CULINARIA"

Abbiamo conosciuto la casa vacanze Dietro Serra nel giugno 2009. Ci eravamo trovati così bene da volerci tornare per altri 12 giorni. In settembre con il clima accogliente, la stagione offre il meglio delle degustazioni dei prodotti locali biologici. Abbiamo partecipato alla vendemmia insieme ai proprietari che si sono dimostrati vocati al coinvolgimento e all'ospitalità in un clima di festosa familiarità. L'ospite qui è di casa. Quindi il benvenuto. Raccomandiamo la struttura anche alle famiglie con bambini, poiché qui è possibile vivere in un ambiente sano, pulito, sicuro. A noi è stata offerta anche l'opportunità di assistere alla lavorazione del vino, eseguita secondo metodiche tramandate di generazione in generazione. Avevamo scritto già 3 anni fa la qualità e la pulizia all'interno della proprietà e dell'immobile in particolare. Le riconfermiamo aggiungendo che sono state apportate ulteriori migliorie, come l'installazione dell'impianto di riscaldamento centralizzato che di certo consente il massimo comfort nei mesi invernali. Vorremmo aggiungere che la novità più appetitosa è l'aver scoperto che la zona intorno offre non solo relax, ma anche luoghi di ristoro e di degustazione: dalle colazioni alle cene più raffinate di tipico stampo mediterraneo. I proprietari hanno saputo consigliarci al meglio. Seguendo le loro indicazioni (sono espertissimi) abbiamo scoperto locali pubblici che offrono la migliore produzione locale. Fra questi vorremmo consigliare almeno una colazione con granita al Gran Caffè Urna di Viagrande; una cena al ristorante "Tre Santi" dello scrittore e cuoco Pippo Perni, a Trecastagni; e ducis in fundo la Dolceria Salemi di Zafferana Etnea, produttrice di una specialità di biscotti denominati "Foglie da Tè". Straordinari. Provare per credere. I proprietari sono persone affidabili che sanno suggerire e consigliare con dovizia. Non abbiamo fallito un sol colpo. Grazie a loro abbiamo avuto modo di conoscere il vero cuore pulsante della cucina siciliana. Consigliamo anche ai più scettici nordisti una vacanza in questo paradiso del Sud, che è immerso in un parco naturalistico di rara bellezza (Monte Serra). Un saluto a tutti da Fabio e Oriana Martorano
