We spent a week here with our 3-year old daughter and our baby boy (10 months old). We took a prebooked taxi from Fontanarossa airport which was very convenient. It's very clearly signposted so I can't see why there are some remarks about it being difficult to find. It's possible to reach Puntalazzo with public transport from the airport. Buses are infrequent (at least during the winter months), they don't operate on weekends and it's virtually impossible to get a cab in Giarre if you happen to miss the last bus. The bus stop in Puntalazzo is a 10 minute walk from La Pietra Antica O'Munti.
The room we stayed in was really spacious and was cleaned every day. They provided a slightly broken baby cot for 10€/night. There were fresh flowers on the table and the staff was accommodating. The rooms are sparsely decorated. The view from the small courtyard in front of our room was great! The breakfast was unexpectedly good, the pastries were very nice as was the cappuccino and every morning there were some new treats such as candied orange and lemon peel or frittata. There were, in addition to pastries, bread, cheese and cold cuts. They should stop cooking eggs though as these were overcooked to the degree that the yolk had turned green.
Overall we had a great time here taking strolls in the countryside and just chilling. The chestnut tree of a hundred horses is within easy walking distance with a stroller or child carrier as is Sant'Alfio. We would however recommend going here by car as excursions are much easier that way. If you're interested in my opinion of the restaurant see my separate review.
