We had a lovely 7 days here, lovely apartment type Accomodation, perfect for us. The units were terraced however very private and rustic but well furnished. The double bedroom was really spacious and comfortable. Kitchen/living area just enough. Kitchen facilities basic, with only 2 rings, but then we didn't use it, and BBQ'd every night in our wee garden. Fridge was great, full size and nice and cold. Best of all was the air conditioning units in the living area and bedroom. Fabulous. So cool. Best of all outside was the nice big pool 30 seconds from the door with top class pool furniture ( white leather) and large shaded area. Pool/beach towels were provided. Monica, who welcomed us, made sure everything was perfect. It was, but if we had wanted anything, all we had to do was ask.

In terms of location, we loved it. We had thought we'd be in Taormina but glad now we were a wee bit away. So peaceful yet close enough. We walked into the village for coffe and cake for breakfast. You do need a car to get about though but the location is very central for days out. Giardini Naxos is only a few minutes away by car. It's a busy seaside resort (too busy in August) loads restaurants. Take a boat trip from the beach to isola bella, Parking in Giardini was a bit of a nightmare but doable. Taormina is lovely, worth the trouble of parking and buses or cable cars. God the views were brilliant. Best of all and the highlight of our trip was the sunset trip to Etna. We took a tour for about 80 euros each. Well worth it.

Would definitely recommend, and a special word of thanks to Monica.

Returning home to Germany just 3 days ago, we already got the travel bug. We are a family of 4 persons (2 adults and 2 children of 7 and 6 years) that spent 3 weeks of their summer holidays in the beautiful
„case del principe“. Just when we entered the property through a big gate, we felt the Mediterranean flair due to palm trees, rhododendrons, lemon trees and lots of other typical flowers and plants. The people were extremely friendly, gave us helpful hints and cared a lot about our well-being. We stayed in a small house called „Trinacria“ which was well-equipped. Especially the air conditioners in the 2 main rooms were a blessing when the temperatures outside reached 30°C and more. The pool was wonderful and nicely encircled by plants and a bigger sun shelter that invited us to spend some time reading, sleeping, chatting in the comfortable seating furniture. The place is perfect for families because the pool is not far from the house and you share it with the maximum of 4 other tenants. Once a week the house was entirely cleaned and we got fresh towels, linen, etc., so that we could feel completely at home. Things you definitely need, when you travel to the „case del prinicipe“ are tanning oil, mosquito repellent and a car, because fortunately you don`t stay close to the crowdy tourist places like Giardini Naxos, so that it`s calm and you can relax perfectly. But nevertheless shops, beach and restaurants could be reached within 5 to 15 minutes by car. Finally we enjoyed our stay so much that we can only recommend you the „case del prinicipe“ most warmly. We definitely come back. And apart from this.... who can tell to have met a real prince in life. ☺
