We had a great stay at the apartment, fantastic view. It’s only 5-10 min to walk to the Beach. We had with us our 1-year-old son. The way to the Beach would be easier without a baby stroller because it is some stairs you have to walk down to get there 🙂 Irina is a very nice host!

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus verfügt über eine Küche und zusätzlich eine Sommerküche. Das Meer liegt in unmittelbarer Nähe – ca. 50 m. Der Meerzugäng besteht aus klippenartigem Vulkangestein; es wurde aber ein betonierter Zugang geschaffen, so dass das Schwimmen kein Problem darstellt. Francesco war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit; er spricht gut Englisch. Auf dem Grundstück befinden sich mehrere Zitronenbäume mit herrlich duftenden Früchten. Man kann schön draußen sitzen. Die nächste Stadt ist Acireale; ca. 10-15 Min. mit dem Auto. Die Küche ist etwas klein, die Einrichtung eher einfach; aber gemütlich und schön. Wir würden das Haus wieder mieten.

Квартира расположена в жилом комплексе в 5 минутах пешком до пляжа, комплекс огорожен, доступ через три закрывающихся калитки Окна выходят в сторону моря, жд и автодороги, шум от которых на второй день уже становится несущественным Рядом автобусная остановка, до жд станции 20 мин пешком На балконе можно делать еду на гриле, через дорогу рыбный магазин со свежей рыбой Мелкие магазины в шаговой доступности, до большого гипермаркета, где можно закупиться надолго пешком 25 минут На пляжах отдыхают в основном иностранцы, в пешей доступности район Реканати, где преимущественно только отели так что тут местный колорит обеспечен

The home (apartment) was much nicer than advertised. The surrounding gardens were gorgeous! the pool was fantastic and the views of mt. etna were something out of a travel guide. it is a little difficult to find at first and the roads, like most in that area, are narrow at times. this was very kid friendly rental and the hosts were very welcoming to them (we had 5). we only wish that there was a bbq onsite that we could have grilled fresh fish from the nearby fish markets….

Nous étions agréablement installés, à deux pas de la plage de petits galets, avec vue du balcon sur l’Etna. Le village animé propose une cuisine savoureuse à petits prix et nous pouvions faire des excursions vers Catane,Syracuse, Taormina et l’Etna très facilement en voiture.Ce n’est pas du luxe mais très correct et notre hôte a été très sympa et nous a donné de bonnes indications pour nos excursions.

We were in touch with Oksana before heading out to Sicily and she was great- very prompt and helpful in her response. When we arrived Irina picked us up from the GN – Recanati bus station (which is less than 5 mins away from the house!) and got us settled in with some things to drink in the fridge as well. The house is true to the pictures that we got before booking – very simple but very functional. The pros: – Great location for us as we were there for a conference and the conference hotel was at a stone throws, the shops are close as is the bus stop which is great for visiting other locations as well – The main town is a 15-20 min walk which was fine for us – The hotel/Recanati area is a more touristy area but still has lots of options for places to eat in case you don’t want to walk to the main strip – The beach is close by and although its a pebble beach (main town beach has sand) and a sharper drop into the water we preferred it – The balcony is lovely and we spent many a morning sitting there – it helped that we had almost no neighbours which meant peace and quiet as well as a great view for the practice run of the air show that was happening there the day we were leaving The cons – The house is very simple which means no toiletries, no insect repellent (MUCH needed) and no iron (which Irina kindly supplied upon request), also there were no supplies in the kitchen (e.g. oil) – but again, these were not a problem for us and especially as the shops are so close by there was no issue with finding any of these – The only aircon in the flat is in the sitting room so the bedroom can get warm – again we were very lucky with the weather but this may be a problem in case its hot In short, we had a great stay and would certainly return if we are ever back in Sicily. Thank you Irina and Oksana for all your help and we hope to see you again!

El apartamento de Oksana, está muy bien decorado y muy cómodo, nos atendió María una amiga muy agradable. El apartamento está situado en una población llamada Fondachello muy mal comunicada con el transporte público, casi imprescindible tener coche. También decir que es un cuarto piso sin ascensor. Está muy bien ubicado, cerca de Taormina y Catania y por supuesto del Etna.

Very nice apartment in a good location. Only a few minutes walk to the beach and restaurants in Giardini-Naxos. Nice view over the sea from the balcony but a bit noisy because of the railway and road outside. Irina was a very good host and attentive to our needs. Stayed in September 2016

Отличный вариант для любителей пляжного отдыха. Квартира красивая, все необходимое есть и все работает. Если ваша цель – пляж, вечерние прогулки у моря, сувениры и рестораны – то вам сюда.

La maison est extraordinaire, avec un domaine gigantesque et une maison très accueillante. Surtout, les propriétaires sont très gentils et n’ont pas hesité à nous donner de nombreux conseils : Oksana a par exemple organisé toute la logistique avant notre arrivé et nous a donné de nombreux conseils sur les choses à faire dans la région. Joséphine, la propriétaire, était quant à elle aux petits soins avec nous et nous a bichonné tout le wk end !! Je recommande très fortement!

Irina was a fantastic host and went out of her way to help us during arrival and departure (we had a delayed flight). She was very nice and gave us many good tips for Giardini Naxos, a beautiful place in Sicily! Thanks, Irina, for a fantastic stay. Stayed in September 2016

Nous avons été bien reçu par Donata et son ami. Des boissons fraîches étaient disponibles dans le réfrigérateur. L’appartement est conforme à la description donnée par le site. Nous avons eu un petit souci avec internet et Oksana s’est déplacée rapidement. Dans l’ensemble nous sommes satisfaits. Le seul petit problème est pour garer la voiture. Hervé & Patricia

The bungalow style apartment was a safe and peaceful haven in a non-touristic flooded location with an ideal rock pool to swim in every morning and evening. The property and amenities provided a great base for us and both hosts were very helpful and gracious. For those who enjoy fresh fish,there is an abundance of great restaurants that aren’t priced to rip off the tourists.

Everything was perfect. Rooms are clean and cozy. Oksana is realy helpful and we felt very welcome there. We enjoyed staying at this place and can recommend it to everyone. Thank you.

The house provided for us was very nice: closed private territory, lemon trees and 50 meters to the sea. When it’s not high season, there is literally no one there and you enjoy the Sicilian nature face to face. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. This location is especially good for travelers with a car – safe parking and proximity to all the Western Sicily coast must-see places. The interior of the house is also nice, not quite modern but very cosy. We really enjoyed our stay at Francesco and Oksana’s place!
