Abbiamo soggiornato in questa casa vacanze incantevole a settembre scorso.
Siamo stati accolti con squisita cordialità dal Sig. Michele e la sua Signora che ci hanno coccolati dal nostro arrivo fino alla nostra partenza.
L’appartamento (sarebbe meglio definirla una vera e propria villetta) è molto ampio, dotato di tutti i comfort e molto pulito. All’esterno vi è un grande giardino curato con un ampissimo prato, che include anche una piscina, in cui i nostri bambini hanno giocato meravigliosamente mentre noi adulti potevamo rilassarci sotto l’ombra di grandi alberi secolari alla vista di un panorama incantevole dominato dall’Etna da un lato e dal mare dall’altro.
L’ubicazione permette di raggiungere molto agevolmente l’Etna per escursioni fantastiche e tantissime altre località favolose sul mare.
Un luogo che ci è rimasto nel cuore! Da visitare assolutamente!

Que de compliments pour cette luxueuse et confortable maison au pied de l'Etna. Nous avons passé une semaine chez Michele et Maria. La maison Dietroserra est un havre de paix avec tout le confort que l'on peut attendre pour ce budget. Une cuisine bien équipée et large pour préparer un repas sicilien, un grand salon avec vue sur la terrasse, 2 chambres confortables, 2 salles de bain bien agencées. La terrasse offre confort et tranquilité. Le jardin et sa piscine nous ont offert de vues incroyables sur l Etna, la nuit nous avions plaisir à vois l'Etna brûler. La maison est située à moins de 5min en voiture des commerces, fort appréciable pour acheter le pain ou préparer un repas ou encore aller manger une pizza. La situation de la maison vav des autres points d'intérêt est excellente. Enfin la gentillesse et la disponibilité des propriétaires ont fait de ce séjour une réussite. Bref nous ne pouvons que conseiller ce lieu de villégiature!

Urlaub von ersten bis zum letzten Moment!
Wir haben 2,5 Wochen in dem tollen Ferienhaus von Gae und Michele verbracht und diese Zeit sehr genossen. Das Haus ist komplett eingerichtet. Weder in der Küche noch sonst haben wir irgendwas vermisst. Die Ausstattung ist dem Preis angemessen und alles funktioniert.
Die Gastgeber haben sich sehr um uns gekümmert. Neben einem Willkommens-Präsent gab es einen super (!) Geburtstagskuchen, leckere Maulbeer-Granita und so weiter uns so fort. Es war einfach wundervoll herzlich.
Die Fenster des Hauses sind alle mit Mückengittern versehen. Die Terasse liegt geschützt und erlaubt entspanntes Sitzen. Weiterhin bereitete der Pool (nicht nur dem Kinde) Freude. Der Ausblick direkt auf den Ätna ist schon beeindruckend. Alles ist sehr gepflegt.
Kurzum: Ein Besuch ist absolut empfehlenswert und wir sagen dankeschön für eine tollen Zeit. Bis bald!

Posto incantevole con un grande e curato giardino vista Etna.
Casa bella e confortevole e arredata con gusto.
Proprietari molto gentili e oltremodo disponibili.
Siamo stati in 5 (2 adulti e 3 bambini) e la casa è molto adatta a famiglie anche per lo spazio verde disponibile e per una piscina con vista sull'Etna.
Speriamo di ritornarci presto, consigliato!

I spent my Easter holidays in this house, from the 8th-21st April. First off, the location is spectacular - among the vineyards, on a hill overlooking the fabulous Mount Etna. The owners, a lovely local couple, were very welcoming and warm, and available for any request/issue. The lady even offered us a complimentary homemade chocolate cake - which was delicious. On our first few days there we chilled in the swimming pool, overlooking Mount Etna, and the amazing gardens surrounding the house. The house has its own terrace overlooking the vineyards,and it is located very near to Viagrande city centre, with supermarkets and plenty of options for pizzerias. Hiring a car is recommended as taxis are expensive in Sicily and the main attractions - Mount Etna, and the surrounding cities, are not within walking or cycling distance. We would absolutely recommend this house to anyone and we would definitely like to return as soon as possible. Thank you to Gae and Michele.

Owner speaks only Italian, his son who we saw only on arrival can speak a little English.
Furnitured with old benches.
Wifi is hardly working.
The heating and warm water facilities run only from 19.00 till 20.00 hours. When we asked the son if the heating could go on, he replied that it was not cold. On the operation panel there is a paper which says do not touch. If you remove it and try the panel yourself it is possible to get some heating in the rooms on chilly evenings and some warm water for a shower, but in my opinion this should be included in the normal rental agreement.
눇Nicely situated with view on the Etna.
Nice garden, however also inhabited by a snake of half a meter which made it less relaxing to sit in the garden.
Swimming pool available, but you have to remove the dead insects yourself.

We were really amazed by the contents and the general tone of this review.This because, for many years, except in one case, our holiday home was always praised by our guests. We love to take care of them, and we usually do everything to make them feel at ease and let them spend a pleasant holiday.
For this reason, we appreciate any reports that enable us to further improve the hospitality.
However, we think this review is full of inaccuracies and written for the only purpose of discredit our structure.
First of all when guests have asked us to have the heaters turned on, they were immediatly satisfied. If, as they actually said, they had not tampered with the boiler touching a dial where there was clearly written they would not touch, they would have had active heating, and of course hot water available 24 hours a day.
We wonder for what strange reason guests did not report to us the malfunctions as they had been told clearly that if they were not yet satisfied of the temperature they could easily notify us, given that we live into the next house. And what is more, the second day of their stay they told us that everything was good. In fact, only after their leaving we found that the boiler had gone in stall.
As for the swimming pool, our holiday home is located in the Sicilian countryside, for this reason you can find a few bugs in the pool although it is cleaned every day.
The presence of snakes in the grass there has never been reported. But finding us in the country we can not exclude that customers have spotted a small harmless grass snake (very rare, and really harmless).
We fly over on the "old benches", and specify that it is a rustic country house and all the fornitures of the house are visible in the photos on the website that customers use to make the reservation.
Taking everything into account, we are still sorry if customers are not happy and that there has been some misunderstanding.

Dit is echt een heerlijk plekje! Ons appartement was ruim, schoon en compleet! Alles is aanwezig ( wasmachine, keukengerei( zelfs een kaasschaaf 😁) eigen terras etc). Je hebt een fantastische tuin tot je beschikking met zwembad en adembenemend uitzicht op de mytische vulkaan de etna! Geweldig!
Heerlijk rustig ook en 5 minuten rijden naar het dorpje en 10 minuten naar de shoppingmall! Goede uitgangspositie om Taormina, Catania en de etna te bezoeken.
Wifi werkt ook uitstekend!
Jammer dat we hier weg moesten...

Het is een hele mooie plek, heel vriendelijke eigenaren, heel schoon, goed voorzien van keukengerei en mooi huisje. Een mooie uitvalplek naar de (noord)oostkant van Sicilië. Het uitzicht op de Etna is echt geweldig en je kunt zowel binnen als buiten heerlijk zitten. wij waren met twee stellen en dan is het huis echt heel erg prettig oa vanwege de twee badkamers.
Het was een heerlijke en relaxte start van onze rondreis.
Midden in het dorp vooral even boodschappen doen bij de kleine kruidenier. Je waant je terug in de jaren 60 en een geweldige bediening. veel leuker dan een supermarkt.
