“Lovely house in peaceful spot with stunning views”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This house has a great location about half an hour from the beach and within the Etna National Park. You definitely need a car to get the most from the area but the terraces are lovely for just relaxing and admiring the views and there is a village within walking distance. As we were a yoga group we were catered for and Natasha is a fantastic cook and also helped us with excursions and local knowledge.

“Special place in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 28 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I joined a yoga course here and had the most restful time. The house is welcoming and spacious with two large terraces both with spectacular views down to the sea. A gem of a find with wonderful touches sitting in its own vineyard a great place to unwind.

“Stunning vista from high quality property on the slopes of Etna”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The vista from here is wonderful, the photos barely do justice to the experience. In the morning (if you're an early riser) you can sit in silence and watch the sun rise over Italy while you sip your coffee made from the Gaggia in the kitchen; and in the evening you can watch the distant twinkling lights of Taormina while you sample the fine local wines. Both experiences are blissfully quiet.

The property itself is the result of carefully planned construction; and it's that same attention to detail that you'll experience inside and from your host; everything is thought of. It's this attention to detail (e.g. quality of bed linen, towels, etc. availability of a good coffee machine, beach towels, home-made olive oil etc.) that makes this property stand out as much as the view from the balconies.

It's location is perfectly situated for short trips to the many nearby beaches, Taormina, Castelmola, Catania and of course Etna. If you're lucky, as we were, you'll hear the quiet rhythmic "whoomf" of Etna (a truly unique noise).

“idealic perfect stay, will definitely be returning!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

What can I say about this place, it is very appropriately named "the view". I don't think my husband and I could believe our luck when we rolled up to this place. We were literally speechless. The view across the lower part of etna and the ocean is priceless. But it's not just the view that makes this one of the best holidays rentals we've stayed , it's the authenticity and beauty of the villa. It's been decorated with thought and care, we spend an unhealthy amount time taking photographs of taps/tiles and lamps...you'll understand what we mean if you make a visit. In addition to this it's well kitted out with cooking bits etc. which is massively helpful. We made a lot of use of the bbq, but weren't quite brave enough for the outdoor pizza oven. If you are looking for a peaceful refreshing and breathtaking getaway then we highly recommend it. Thankyou tasha for renting this place :-)
