Truly a spectacular spot. From the dining room window, you can see out over the sea, and from the terrace, a wonderful view of Mt Etna, and Catania beneath in its shadow. The apartment is modestly furnished, has comfortable beds, and is whisper quiet at night. Perfect place for a restful sleep. The beach below is a mix of sand and rock....and ia beautiful. Bit of a climb to get back, but well worth it. Private, quiet, and with clear clear water. The shower is fantastic. Large, with a great rainfall head...very comfortable. The only downside is that the place tended to smell of open drains throughout our stay. Not likely much the owner can do to mitigate this...it is what it is, but just know the scent is unpleasant. Not overwhelming, but unpleasant. It's also quite a drive to a supermarket, so stock the fridge well when you arrive. All in all, a wonderful place to relax, and we found it to be a good base for Catania, Siracusa, Ragisa, etc.
Our stay in Gaetano's villa was a lot of fun! He greeted us warmly and showed us all that we needed to make the most of our stay in his clean and cosy 2-bedroom villa. The upper deck made a great spot to enjoy breakfasts and relaxation in the evenings. The lower deck is very large and could be used for dining and relaxing. Good amenities were provided, although we were unable to use the bbq. He has lovely landscaping on the property but the overgrowth near the bbq made it difficult to reach/use. It would have been nice to have this option for making quick meals. We were given good suggestions how best to access local supermarkets as well as ideas for day trips to nearby Agnone Beach, Augusta, and Siracusa. To make the most of this location, a car is essential. We would definitely recommend this villa! Thanks, Gaetano!
