Overview

About the property

(Text automatically translated) The House of Olives is located within a private complex very quiet, just a few steps walk from the sea. From the living room, as well as from the garden and terrace you can admire an enchanting rising and setting of the sun behind the village of Brucoli. The House of Olives is an excellent starting point for countless excursions (short and long). Brucoli, a typical fishing village, just a few minutes walk, here and in other neighboring countries you can taste the delicious Sicilian specialties: granita, arancini, sweets with almonds and pistachios, ... and countless fish specialties. Several other locations are easy to reach in about half an hour you will be in Catania, Baroque town with its typical fish market, and its wonderful old town, rich and charming, very lively even at night, in less than an hour you will be Taormina, the pearl of Sicilian tourism. Always in an hour you can climb Mount Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe, with the possibility of unique and exciting excursions on foot and by cable car, only twenty minutes away, there is the fascinating Syracuse, ancient Greek city, with its wonderful artistic and cultural heritage, to say nothing of Noto, about 30 minutes, and with its ceramics of Caltagirone, a little more than an hour ... Obviously it is essential to the car!

A Comfortable House in a Lovely Situation

  • 3 of 5

The house is in a lovely situation with a lovely garden looking over the bay to Catania. In good weather it must be idyllic to sit in the garden or on the terrace looking at Mount Etna. Unfortunately the weather was very poor (but not cold) during our stay and we weren't able to take advantage of the house's main attractions (we couldn't see the volcano). We were very unlucky but this was not the fault of the house. We were 5 people and were very comfortable inside but because of the weather we could not spend much time in the garden or on the terrace. I think if there were more than 6 in the house the living accommodation would be crowded, and self-catering would be difficult. Brucoli is convenient for Catania and its airport, Taormina, Siracusa and Noto and we visited all these places, sometimes in heavy rain! Giuseppina was very helpful and when we had a couple of problems she fixed them very quickly. We were quite late in the season and some of the restaurants in Brucoli were not open, but we did have some delicious meals. One of our party is allergic to fish and seafood, and sometimes it was difficult to find an alternative in the restaurants (only salad for dinner!). I think if the weather had been good I would have given four stars - when you travel from a cool wet country for a holiday in a hot dry country, you expect to live mainly outdoors. If you can't do that, you give more attention to the indoor facilities and don't appreciate so much the outdoors.

Superbe souvenir

  • 5 of 5

Que du positif pour ce séjour. Nous avons été très bien accueillis, directement dans ce village typique malgré l'heure tardive. Quelle surprise de se réveiller le matin face à la mer et l'Etna, vue superbe. La villa est spacieuse ( nous étions 5 ), confortable, très bien équipée et très bien située, dans un secteur sécurisé (portail électrique dans la résidence). A mi chemin de Catane et Syracuse, autoroute à 10 mn, tout l'Est de la Sicile à disposition. Supérette à proximité avec des heures d'ouverture très bien adaptées aux vacances. Les propriétaires ont toujours été disponibles, réactifs. Location à recommander sans souci. Merci encore

Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable, dans cette maison spacieuse, bien équipée pour les vacances, propre et bien entretenue. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et serviables. Les enfants ont adoré la maison, le jardin, la plage tout près et surtout les moments avec Federica.... A bientôt peut être.

Federica a adoré jouer avec Martin Apolline, Maé et Faustine et a décidé d'étudier le français pour vous accueillir la prochaine fois! Au plaisir de vous y accueillir à nouveau pour de prochaines vacances.

agreable

  • 4 of 5

maison agréable, bien située. par contre les équipements de la maison sont un peu en nombre limité ou absents tels que: micro onde, couteaux digne s de ce noms , vaisselle etc..la télé ne marchait pas non plus. c 'est un peu juste pour une location de 8 personnes. certes cela peut apparaître comme étant des détails mais bon cela améliore les vacances. sinon le reste était très bien. la communication avec le propriétaire était très bonne et rapide par mail. l'accueil dans la maison également. pas de problème.
