A really different and interesting place to stay. From the outside just another property in the street but once through the door like stepping back in time. Marina and Giuseppe had to meet us at Giarre gate on more than one occasion as you really need gps to find the place but they always were happy to oblige and even escorted us out on the day of departure. There are many outside steps up to the accomodation floor but don't be put off. We were also given a key to another exit that used a lovely marble staircase and gave a taste of the history of the home. The hosts are excellant cooks and I would suggest you eat here at 25 euros a person. The food, wine and company being unmatched by other places I have stayed at. I don't like cheese or tomato and when possible they provided an alternative. Giuseppe has a good wine selection available at a small extra cost. We tried to drink our way through it. The only fault was our room was a long way from the bathroom at night, as we needed single beds but not unexpected given the age of the property. Walking past old paintings and photos, chandeliers on the ceiling more than made up for that. We spent many hours on the terrace with views of Etna, often joined by the owners sons dog late at night. The week we stayed Marina's mother was also visiting, a wonderfull lady in her 80's always willing to talk and a joy to meet. All in all more like a home from home and a desire to return again soon. .
