Guests reviews

The agency that manages the house has been very friendly and always available. They also took excellent care of our needs. The tips on site about shopping and directions were great.The view, from the house is fantastic, we enjoyed our stay very much.


We visit Sicily by the end of August. The house and the garden is wonderful and we (in total 6 adults) totally enjoyed our time here. From the pool you have a great view over cantania and the sea. The house is well equipped and the real estate was very kind. They gave us great tips and answered within a short time. Thanks a lot for your great hospitality!


We had a very nice stay in Palmento Trecastagni. Mario waited for us until very late and guided us to the well hidden house. The old mill has been restored and decorated with much taste, it is really a beautiful and unique property.The kitchen is well equipped. Terrace, garden and pool area are wonderful, with a view of the sea and the whole area north of Catania. In October it gets a bit chilly in the evening and the pool is really refreshing... The location is very quiet but a bit outside of town, you really need a car to get around, then it's only a 5 min drive to Trecastagni. For other destinations you need to get to the highway at Acireale, which is a 15-20 min drive through rather chaotic villages. All in all, we would certainly recommend staying here, both for families or a group of friends!
