Reviewed 2 Nov 2015

The appartment is located near the sea and close to a large pebble beach (5 min drive) and the sandy beach of Giardini Naxos (20 min drive) & Taormina/Etna. Bread and fresh food nearby and very friendly owners recommending day-trips etc

Owner's reply: Lovely family. Communication and smiling persons. It has been a pleasure to guest them in our apartment. The Children were very funny. Thank you for your stay. Suggested to all the hosts.

“Great ! Tutto Bene ! Très bien !”

Rosario e Mariella sono molto gentili.

Owner's reply: Invités Excellent, est tellement agréable d'avoir des gens comme ça dans votre propre appartement. Merci pour votre gentillesse et pour donner une touche d'élégance à votre présence. A bientôt et je le recommande à tous les propriétaires de ces belles personnes. Rosario

“Great holidays in a great apartment”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2015

The apartment is very spacious, ready to host a big family like mine! The location is perfect - in front of the sea, with all the services nearby - a supermarket, a bakery, pastry shop etc - just next to the apartment. Riposto is a very nice place to spend holidays - close to Etna, Taormina and many more Sicily attractions - they all can be easily reached by car from Riposto. There is a small beach just in 2 min walk from the appartment, and big beaches are just 3 min drive away, and you can always park there. The apartment has also a private parking, which is very useful in summer when there are many visitors in town. Rosario and Mariella are great hosts, they provide all the necessary information, the apartment has everything, including beach towels. They also provided us with food - fresh fruit, cookies, milk, jam etc, very nice of them. Rosario and Mariella invited us for dinner at their place, and we could experience theis great hospitality once more! Actually this is the second summer that I spend in Riposto - last year I came with my husband and a baby, and this year I brought my parents and sister, that is how much I liked my experience! Last year I stayed at a smaller apartment of Rosario, and this year we tried a bigger Casa Iolanda, well what can I say - it is great and I wish to go back in future again! I recommend a holiday in Casa Iolanda to all the people who want to discover authentic Sicilian hospitality and culture!

Owner's reply: Amazing family! All, one by one, child comprised! Really hope to have again them in my apartments. If twice why not three times? Especially for Sofia(15 months old) that wants return to taste the sicilian cuisine! I am awaiting, Victoria, in the meanwhile have you nice days and good luck. Strongly recommended to all hosts!!!

My time spent in Casa iolanda was lovely. It is a beautiful home and I would definitly stay there again. I had a lovely time.

Owner's reply: We are awaiting you for the nex your vacation!

“A nice place to feel like home”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2014

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.

Owner's reply: 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 Rosario & Mariella
