“Lovely remote property, shame we could not stay longer!!!”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We only stayed for 1 night, which regretted later. The property is placed next to a small road, surrounded by trees with no other buildings nearby. It kind of gives you that nice a little bit scary feeling like from a movie as there seemed to be no other residents apart from our group. Jamal, who was in charge of the property was very pleasant, explained everything and once the heating was on it was nice, warm and cosy again. Would definitely come back again.

With perfect view on top craters!, day and night you can admire Mt. Etna activity.
It is located high on Etna south slope (1735m Serra Le Nave area)
At nights when you could see Etna glowing from Bocca Nuova crater we saw people from around the area came to Serra le Nave to get a good view on Etna activity.
We could not believe how lucky we ware that we could admire the glow perfectly while sitting on chairs on our balcony relaxing, with a glass of Etna Rosso wine :))))

Residence is very close to Sapienza (3km) and beginning of a cable car (Funivia del Etna)
( 3 minutes by car, around 45 minutes walk up 30 minutes walk down)
It is also located on most important hiking and bicycle trails that go around South Etna, and being so close to lava fields it is still surrounded by trees that give a nice shadow all day and change the air a little bit. For us very important as we were there July/August, and we loved to come back there from all day hikes around desert like slopes of Etna.

Residence itself.
We came there originally for one week...we extended to 3 weeks :) We loved the Mogano apartment we rented, a lot of space - bedroom, living-room, bathroom, kitchen and our favorite Etna view balcony for a very reasonable price!

Even though Serra Le Nave is so close to Sapienza (witch is very busy area full of tourist and buses coming every day) it remains very peaceful and quiet place surrounded by nature.
We will defiantly try to come back one day!

The location is abosolutely fantastic: peace, nature, kind people, beautiful apartment. What else
.... Well something so incredible: you can see a lot of foxes and see for yourself how they love grapes ... Some foxes come in fact and take it directly from your fingers ...
And finally ... Aurelio, the owner, is available for you to do incredible hiking on the slopes of Etna

even if you book for 10Euro wood,you have to be aware that you have to know how to light it up!
the plus-if you want to be all by yourself with your partner-you are!Nobody was there!
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
we did not use the gas very much,but was an extra of 6Euros /day,so the better deal-go to the top of Etna pay extra 15Euros but you will have breakfast included and heating!
