Response from the owner Dear Tato and Mary, thank you so much for your review. We are honored you enjoyed your stay ( and our special "segretario":-)) and we really loved having you as our guests... it was a wonderful way to strike up a friendship!! See you soon! Nadia
The name says it all - Etnamare - The perfect location between the coast and Mount Etna. The apartments have amazing views of either the sea, mountain or both. Apartments are well equiped, clean and a good size with a large accompanying veranda. There is also a large pool which is surrounded by an orange grove. The place is amazing and well recommended! Nadia, the manager and her father make you feel welcome and are always on hand to help too. I can't wait to go back :)
Response from the owner Dear Damien, thank you for taking the time to share such a wonderful review! We feel honored to know you loved your stay at EtnaMare and look forward to welcoming you again in the near future. Nadia
“Vue tres sympathique”
Nous avons passé un bon séjour, nous etions quatre, une grande chambre avec un grand lit et le canape convertible. l'ensemble etait correct, les personnes qui s'occupent de la résidence etaient tres acceuillantes. le seul gros problème est l'isolation des appartements, le bruit de la cage d'escalier et la porte de communication entre les deux appartements.
Response from the owner Villa Etnamare est divisée en 4 appartements et est entouré d'un jardin de 5 hectares, avec une grande piscine. Nos appartements "Girasole" et "Gelsomino" peuvent être combinés par une porte intérieure. La porte est protégé par une tente insonorisée. Nous sommes désolés que vous n’ayez pas été entièrement satisfaits de votre séjour. Nous profiterons de cette expérience pour faire en sorte que cela n'arrive jamais plus. A cet égard, notre tapissier nous a dit qu'il peut amortir la porte en bois comme dans un studio d'enregistrement, et nous ferons cela dès que possible. Néanmoins, votre inquiétude au sujet des bruits venant de la pièce voisine a été présentée à l'arrivée, quelques jours avant les autres clients habitent l’autre appartement. Dans mon expérience, quand on se focalise sur un problème potentiel, même si le problème se révèle fondé, il est susceptible d'être vécue comme pire qu’il est réellement. En outre, puisqu'il s'agit d'un bâtiment entièrement neuf avec murs en béton armé (a cause de l’épaisseur on a du installer répéteurs de signal pour le Wi-Fi), il est très peu probable d'entendre des bruits provenant de la cage d'escalier, principalement parce qu'il n'ya pas de porte qui connecte cette dernière aux appartements. Même si nous ne sommes pas parfaits, nous mettons toujours notre cœur dans tout ce que nous faisons et nous cherchons toujours d’apporter des améliorations, tout ça afin d’offrir un séjour merveilleux dans notre endroit beau et tranquille. Nadia (propriétaire).
“We did it again - We came back to Etnamare”
The short story is: we did something that we've never done before, we visited the same place a second time ... and we do not exclude to do it again, maybe to investigate Sicily also once in a different season.The longer story: Etnamare belongs to the most perfect places I've ever been to. We are travelling ...as a family with 2 kids (4 and7). Etnamare is a great place for many different tours, e.g. within 20 minutes you are on top of Etna or down at the sea, you have the sandy beaches of Catania and places to snorkel like acitrezza, Taormina or the valley of alcantara are close. The house itself is very spacious and comfortably equipped. There is a huge (really huge) garden attached to the house and the pool is the center of it. Angelo and Nadia are perfect hosts and they belong to the good reasons why one wants to visit this place again. The pool is even nicer than you can see from the pictures. From some perspectives the sea and the pool truely seem to melt together and turning around gives you full view on Etna's activity. This year we "only" had smoke but last year we saw it twice in real action, something that we will never forget for sure. Also important to mention that there has both times been very good contacts between guests from the different appartments, especially important for the kids. The terrace and the opportunity for having a barbecue makes it also a great place for a superb italian feast.Angelo and Nadia, thanks for having us as your guests. Ci vediamo.
Response from the owner Dear Tanja, thank you ( twice! ;-)) for such a wonderful review, we are honored that you enjoyed our home so much you decided to come back for the second time! it means a lot to us, but what makes us even happier is to have met people like you. We hope to be able to see you and your friends coming back over and over again!
We spent a week at Etnamare in July 2012. The apartement was lovely, but at times too small for four people (2 adults and 2 children). Everything was perfectly functional. The kitchen well equipped. The landscape beautiful and the view megnificent. It was very clean and tidy. The owners are present on the property and very attentive to their guests' needs. We loved it and warmly recommend it.
Response from the owner Dear Francesca,thank you so much for your review. The villa is located in a unique setting indeed, and it's very rewarding to hear back from guests who love our place as much as we do! We apologize for the fact that we were not able to offer you the most suitable accommodation among our range of solutions, as the larger units had already been reserved, at the time of your booking. We put all our energies and passion into this rental experience and we will treasure your rating, since we are constantly striving for improvement. Arrivederci! Nadia
“Absolutely wonderful stay at EtnaMare, can't recommend highly en”
Beautiful apartment! Everything looks brand new and of good quality. Very large and well furnished. Nice that just four apartments, we rarely even had to share the pool. Pool fantastic, set in lovely gardens with fruit trees. Huge private patio with barbecue. We were in 'Gardenia' with lovely views of Etna. Angelo, Nadia and Mario are perfect hosts - really helpful without being at all intrusive. We arrived late on a Saturday night, and Nadia generously provided us with a basket of goodies for our breakfast. Charming angelo loves to share fresh fruit from the garden. Excellent English spoken by Nadia and Mario. Stunning location with wonderful views of Etna and the sea. You can even see the lights from the mainland. Approximately half an hour from Catania (airport and fantastic market), convenient for the south side ascent of Etna, Taormina, and only about an hour to Milazzo for a cruise to the aeolian Islands (recommend an evening trip to Stromboli - highlight of our trip). One thing to be aware of, the apartment is extremely well-equipped, but was missing a DVD player - could be useful to take something, especially if you have children.
Response from the owner Dear Jill and Jon, thank you so much for your lovely words! We are very glad you enjoyed our villa and the goodies we provided. Any suggestion is always welcome, as we strive to improve our standards to make our future guests' experience even better. A DVD player can be useful for families with children and we will provide it as soon as we can. Nevertheless, our Tvs have an usb port installed, allowing our guests to play Dvx/Mp3 through a small external hard drive. It has been a pleasure having you stay with us and look forward to seeing you again! Nadia
“Villa EtnaMare review”
Séjour agréable dans cet endroit calme avec deux magnifiques vues (une sur l'Etna et une autre sur la mer). La location est conforme aux descriptions faites sur le site. Les lits sont confortables, les douches très propres et l'accès à internet est bon (Wifi). La résidence est très récente et très bien entretenue. Les propriétaires (Nadia, Angelo et "secretario") sont chaleureux et très discrets. Nous avons apprécié la piscine à débordement semi-olympique. Le logement se situe à deux pas de Taormina et Catane (env. 0:20 en voiture). Nous avons visité une partie de la Sicile (Syracusa, Taormina, Etna, Isola Bella, Spoleto, Aci Trezza, Santa Maria La Scala, Noto, La Scala dei Turchi, Agrigento, la vallei dei tempi, etc.). Cette région est vraiment magnifique. Nous recommandons cette location. Pleasant stay in this quiet place with two tremendous views (one of Etna and another on the sea). The lease conforms to the descriptions on the site. The beds are comfortable, very clean showers and internet access is good (WiFi). The residence is very recent and very well maintained. The owners (Nadia, Angelo and "secretario") are warm and very discreet. We enjoyed the semi-Olympic pool. The property is situated close to Taormina and Catania (approx. 0:20 drive). We visited a part of Sicily (Syracusa, Taormina, Etna, Isola Bella, Spoleto, Aci Trezza, Santa Maria La Scala, Noto, La Scala dei Turchi, Agrigento, vallei dei tempi, etc..). This area is really beautiful. We recommend this rental.
Response from the owner Dear Karim, thank you for taking the time to write such a beautiful and detailed review and for the great picture you shared with us! It means a lot to us and helps future guests get a complete view of what to expect. Hope we'll be able to see you coming back again! Nadia
