“Nice location for Taormina and Etna tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2008

We arrived after dark following a harrowing drive through Catania (we got lost, don't ask). Even once you are in Calatabiano, the agriturismo is rather hard to find as it is located on a small side street, behind a large gate with just a small sign out front. ( We had a GPS but it did not have the exact street so if you are using a GPS, I suggest searching for a nearby larger street.) We rang the bell and were allowed to drive through the gate. We were shown to our spacious suite/apartment with full kitchen. It was nicely decorated in a rural cottage kind of way. I thought it was very pretty. We were brought a welcome plate of food which I found very nice. The owner/staff was very helpful with local route information and restaurant advice. The agriturismo is near the highway; however, there are fans in the rooms which can be turned on to drown out any annoying noise. All we ever heard was the distant passing of freeway traffic which was not bothersome at all. The next morning, we had a simple (croissant, rolls, yogurt) in the main building. We toured the property which is full of citrus trees, plants and flowers. We picked some lemons and made lemonade. There is a magnificent view of Mount Etna from the property. On Day 1, we drove to a town on the slopes of Etna to view the lava fields. On day 2, we drove to Taormina which has a grand old theater and a great pedestrian street. This agriturismo is ideally situated for touring in both of these directions. We had just two complaints about our stay here. The beds were very very firm. Also, it was impossible to shower without soaking the floor with at least an inch of water as the shower is small and there is no door or tub (only curtain). All in all, this is in a great location and I imagine would be welcome retreat in the high season as it is tucked away from tourist areas yet accessible to them as needed. I would recommend if you are looking for this kind of accomodation.
