A lovely location in a lush green garden about 15 minutes from Catania. The house was nice and cool in 30+ degrees sunshine. Aircon was great in both bedrooms. The double bed was very very hard. The main eating area was outside and the table was small - ideal for two, tight for 4. The pool was lovely - shared with the main family - but they seldom used it so it was like a private pool for us. The kitchen was small with few utensils - would struggle to cook a meal in it but big enough for breakfast and lunch preparation. There were six tortoises and hens in two pens close to the house - a nice touch with nature. The main family had little or no english but we communicated fine. Broadband is a little sketchy - keeps dropping and you need to reconnect and generally only available outside the house and at the pool. Nice local restaurants in the local village, San Gregoria di Catania - If possible stay out of Catania, a dirty crowded city.
But it was a lovely relaxing holidays amongst mad Sicilian drivers. Road rules are only there to be broken!!
The mosquitos and other flies are a problem when sitting out in the evening time - They loved me!! - bring the repellant
