We stayed in Casale Marianna for one week. We were two families with 4 children, aged between 7 and 14. The house is situated a bit away from Graniti, so it is totally quiet. We had a great view to the sea - on good days till Syracus.
The house and the kitchen were big enough for all of us. We loved it to eat at the great table outdoors. We didn`t need the dining room indoors. We appreciated a lot, that we could make a fire at the barbecue outdoors, so that even in the nights we could sit there. We really liked the pool. The children would have happily stayed at the house the whole week: the pool and the house and the surroundings are perfect for this. Nevertheless you can do a lot of excursions: going to the etna, to Taormina, even to the islands of Lipari.
The owners are very, very nice people. My daughter forgot her cuddle toy at the end of our stay, and the owners send it to us to Germany. So we recommend this house and its owners absolutely! more
