We spent the first week of July in Villa Betulle. The region of Catania, although beautiful, can be a bit crowded and it can be difficult to find a quiet and comfortable place to enjoy the beauty of the region. It is hard to imagine a place in a better location, more comfortable, and more peaceful than Villa Betulle. It is a balcony at 800 mts above the sea level, just at the foot of Etna. It is ideally placed to explore Etna and the Etna County, the seaside, Catania, Taormina and many other beautiful places. The house is surrounded by cherry trees (we sampled a few kilos ourselves!), olive trees, and it overlooks a lovely terraced garden. There are chickens that lay fresh eggs for your breakfast if you wish to make the short walk to the pen. The swimming pool has a magnificent view over the coast north of Riposto. But above all, you will enjoy the company of Horatzio, Andrea and Loredana, they are the best example of the typical Sicilian hospitality: friendly and generous.
