This is the epitome of a wonderful place to stay and base your visit to eastern Sicily. Luigi and his wife have taken great care in furnishing this charming home – using all first class linens, dishes, glassware and pots and pans. Where some will use a mish mash of left over items it is clear that Luigi has taken care and thought in furnishing this home. The view of the sea and Mt. Etna is spectacular; you can pick fresh lemons from the trees right outside your patio and enjoy the quiet of the countryside while being well within driving distance of all the sights. Luigi loaned us his GPS that he had loaded with the most direct route to Mt. Etna, Tourmina and Syracuse as well at the best place to get brioche and granita.Luigi was available to give us insight into the area and we took advantage of the offer to provide a welcome basket (we made a great pasta diner from the basket) and breakfast basket (we hardly need to buy anything else), we also drank the wine from his vineyard every night as well as his lemoncello. And if needed there is a huge grocery store within 2 km from the house.This is a wonderful part of Sicily with many historical spots to see – Mt. Etna, Piazza Armenia, Syracuse, Noto, Tourmaina are all were well worth the visit.We appreciate Luigi’s hospitality and would unreservedly recommend this charming place in the countryside.
