Owners nice, however unit is smaller then images lead you to believe. Its near a beach which is rock and not mentioned in adds, you need to drive to local useable beachfront. The house is a summer house in flat complex on outskirts if town.

The town is nothing really to consider although as a toring base this unit is ok.

Owners spent time in Ikea to furnish it, but ovrr things are a compromise.

Uprught washing machine which i could use, but took many washes to get stuff clean. Small patio are with mice, lizards and mosquitoes. Youll need a repellant. But thats common everywhere.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks stay at the apartment, my wife and I greatly enjoyed the location for walking. Close to the sea and all essential ammenities for day to day needs. We were made very welcome by wonderful Gresi the owner upon our arrival and were overwhelmed by the very generous welcome pack provided for us. Two weeks goes by quickly when you are enjoying things, and this was the case, we had no problems with any part of our stay, all things worked well, an excellent continous wifi connection is much appreciated. The apartment interior and garden patio space is spacious and enjoyable. A very big thank you for the immense hospitality provided to us during our stay, with more thanks to Mrs Musumeci who insisted on driving us to Riposto station for our early morning train when leaving. Many thanks, hope to return to Siciliy soon.

We stayed in Sicily for a week, lovely apartment, cosy terrace . Nice place if you want to discover Etna , see Taormina and Catania. Place was very quite, Gressi the owner are really friendly and helpful, didn't have any problems. Good idea to take Gps you really need it and update it . I would recommend that apartment probably visit again myself.

Owner's Response: Dear Iasma and family, It was a pleasure meeting and hosting you at my appartament. I am happy that you appreaciated the comfort of my home and its location, quite but at the same time near to the most touristic places of eastern Sicily, beautiful not only in summer but also during autumn and winter seasons when the weather is so warm and sunny almost all the days. Then if you want to escape for few days from the rainy Ireland you are welcome!

"Very well past our time ...

  • 5 of 5

"Very well past our time in the apartment in Riposto. What surprised me: 1 Sicily is a large island to explore something you have to overcome long distances. 2 You have to be prepared for the fact that in the place where you live is close to Mount Etna, the continuous presence of volcanic ash. 3 Unfortunately, in many places in Sicily you can see piles of rubbish, Sicily probably have a problem with that. 4 You have to be very careful on the roads. The particular need to be careful in the cities of Palermo and Catania. Dear narrow and poorly marked. GPS required. 5 It is worth visiting Taormina, Savoca, the island of Vulcano, Agrigento. Contact with the owner of the apartment very good. The apartment has all the amenities. It is located behind a row of houses at the rear, which ensures peace and quiet during the day and at night. The closest grocery store 200m. The seafront promenade 150m. You have to watch the balcony door - the door slams. Firefighters rescued us because slammed in the garden without keys, phone, etc..Everything good that ends well."

"Very nice apartment. very clean and tidy and the owners are very friendly and helpful. There is A/C available but it''s quite expensive to use. My suggestion would be to buy 2 fans for the bedrooms, I think that would be sufficient and they don''t use very much electricity."

  • 5 of 5

La estancia ha sido estupenda. El apartamento estaba dotado según hace referencia el anuncio. Teníamos incluso barbacoa eléctrica, microondas y tostadora-sandwichera. Lo más agradable el pequeño jardín con mecedora donde poder pasar buenos ratos agradables leyendo o comiendo en familia. Gresi y su familia han sido lo mejor de todo, todo amabilidad y cortesía, siempre disponibles y muy muy agradables. En ningún momento hemos tenido que usar el aire acondicionado porque la casa es fresquita. Si tengo que volver a Sicilia, tengo por seguro que volveré al mismo alojamiento. Ha sido una de las experiencias más maravillosas!!
