Fabulous pool and grounds
There's a fantastic view of Etna from the gardens of this villa and a trip to the volcano was a highlight of our holiday. The wonderful pool has views down to the coast, and there are plenty of tables and chairs for eating out in the garden. We also fell in love with a friendly dog from next door who adopted us during our stay. The house is comfortable and interesting, with reasonable kitchen facilities, and Cristiana is a very helpful and welcoming host. Picturesque Taormina and Syracuse are only a shortish drive away.
A lovely property with wonderful grounds and a great pool.
Many Thanks Rosalind for your kindness.
It was a pleasure to have you as guest.
A lovely week in this beautiful villa!
We had such a lovely time in the Stairway to Etna. Cristiana was friendly and helpful when we arrived, and was happy to stay and chat about our plans for the week, and gave us good advice about where to go and where to eat. The pool was wonderful, and the roof terrace had the most beautiful views all around, from the sea to Mount Etna smoking in the distance! The garden had lots of places to explore, and lots of seating for relaxing in the sun. We also loved the two dogs, Giulietta and Trilli! They were very friendly and our children loved them! :-)
There is a Lidl, and another supermarket, about 10 minutes drive away in Viagrande. We ate at Piccolo Mondo, 5 minutes walk away, which was great - really friendly service and lovely food. The villa is really well placed for exploring the East coast of Sicily. Mount Etna, with cable cars almost to the summit, is about half an hour away, as is beautiful Isola Bella at Taormina. You can drive to Siracusa, and the beautiful sandy beaches in that area, in about an hour. But you could easily spend the whole week at the villa, enjoying the pool and the sunshine!
We would highly recommend the Stairway to Etna for anyone looking for a place to stay in this part of Sicily - our children have already asked when we can go back!
Like being at home on holiday!
Cristianas home was exactly that! A beautiful family home, well appointed and well equiped for all needs. On arriving at the property we were overwhelmed - the pictures simply do not do it justice! The pool is wonderful, multiple areas for outside sitting which are beautiful. On exploring the grounds we came across the upper garden which has fantaitic views of Etna. Able to walk into Viagrande in 10 minutes which is a lovely typical Sicilian town. Cristiana was incredibly accomodating to our needs... we had a 12 month old baby with us. She was able to provide a camp bed to suit our preferred sleeping arrangments. If you're a dog lover then the 2 resident house dogs will enhance your stay as they were so friendly and no trouble at all. All in all it was a truly wonderful family holiday which we would love to do time and time again. Would definitely return! The property is a credit to Cristiana who couldn't do enough for us.
Wonderful and homely villa with fantastic views
wonderful week, very well equipped villa with large pool and plenty of seating / shady areas to relax and enjoy. Owner extremely helpful and has created a beautiful home and garden.
Beautiful, perfect for families
Family of 4 (two adults and two small children) stayed for three weeks in this wonderful villa. Lots of space both inside and out, with high standards throughout. The outdoor area is particularly impressive, with beautiful gardens and a fantastic pool. Stunning views of Etna. The owner was very professional and friendly, and everything was well taken care of. The village of Viagrande is charming, although a bit quiet at times. However, it is a good location for exploring the east of Sicily, including Etna, Taormina and Syracusa, among others. We highly recommend this property!
Der Ort ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für viele interessante Exkursionen, Ausflüge in die Natur, Trekking & archäologische Besichtigungen.
