We recently spent 10 days at this superb accommodation. It has a glorious terrace with views of the volcano and surrounding countryside. We ate daily breakfast and dinner al fresco on this terrace in full sunshine. There was a pool to cool off in and a luscious glade with BBQ and seating. Set in a working vineyard the owners gave us a guided tour of the old winery operation and their house red was delicious. The owners were very hospitable and gave us fresh linen, fruit and granita! The villa was spacious and well kept, with plenty of room to sleep six comfortably. Cooking facilities were excellent and very clean. Well situated for both Taormina (we especially recommend the 'Gorge Alcantara') and very close rocky beach at St Tecla. And all only 30mins from Catania airport. Highly recommended! :)

We travelled with our 20 year old daughter who had to do some research on Mt Etna for her university dissertation and the location was supurb. Easy access to the volcano and the sea made sightseeing easy. Our plane was delayed which meant that we got caught up in the Saturday night traffic and arrived in the dark which meant finding the 'green gate' was a little tricky but we got there eventually. The owners of the property met us and showed us around, the description on the website is completly acurate, the garden with it's amazing view of Etna and the pool, which is not huge but cools you off on a hot day. The house was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The house is situated on a family run vinyard and the owners gave us a bottle of their decicious wine on arrival. The pool was cleaned and treated every day, the hosts are there if you need them but do not impose, and one evening brought us some of the most wonderful Granita and nut filled brioch bread I have ever tasted. You need a car to make the most of your stay here we enjoyed a day trips to Taoromina, Catania & Syracuse and also visited some of the mountain towns. A visit to the volcano and cable car is a must. Thank you Maria and family for a great holiday.

Abbiamo conosciuto la casa vacanze Dietro Serra nel giugno 2009. Ci eravamo trovati così bene da volerci tornare per altri 12 giorni. In settembre con il clima accogliente, la stagione offre il meglio delle degustazioni dei prodotti locali biologici. Abbiamo partecipato alla vendemmia insieme ai proprietari che si sono dimostrati vocati al coinvolgimento e all'ospitalità in un clima di festosa familiarità. L'ospite qui è di casa. Quindi il benvenuto. Raccomandiamo la struttura anche alle famiglie con bambini, poiché qui è possibile vivere in un ambiente sano, pulito, sicuro. A noi è stata offerta anche l'opportunità di assistere alla lavorazione del vino, eseguita secondo metodiche tramandate di generazione in generazione. Avevamo scritto già 3 anni fa la qualità e la pulizia all'interno della proprietà e dell'immobile in particolare. Le riconfermiamo aggiungendo che sono state apportate ulteriori migliorie, come l'installazione dell'impianto di riscaldamento centralizzato che di certo consente il massimo comfort nei mesi invernali. Vorremmo aggiungere che la novità più appetitosa è l'aver scoperto che la zona intorno offre non solo relax, ma anche luoghi di ristoro e di degustazione: dalle colazioni alle cene più raffinate di tipico stampo mediterraneo. I proprietari hanno saputo consigliarci al meglio. Seguendo le loro indicazioni (sono espertissimi) abbiamo scoperto locali pubblici che offrono la migliore produzione locale. Fra questi vorremmo consigliare almeno una colazione con granita al Gran Caffè Urna di Viagrande; una cena al ristorante "Tre Santi" dello scrittore e cuoco Pippo Perni, a Trecastagni; e ducis in fundo la Dolceria Salemi di Zafferana Etnea, produttrice di una specialità di biscotti denominati "Foglie da Tè". Straordinari. Provare per credere. I proprietari sono persone affidabili che sanno suggerire e consigliare con dovizia. Non abbiamo fallito un sol colpo. Grazie a loro abbiamo avuto modo di conoscere il vero cuore pulsante della cucina siciliana. Consigliamo anche ai più scettici nordisti una vacanza in questo paradiso del Sud, che è immerso in un parco naturalistico di rara bellezza (Monte Serra). Un saluto a tutti da Fabio e Oriana Martorano
