Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at Casa di Noi for one week in August with our three children (ages 8 - 11). The villa is lovely, and the owners, Eleonora and Amilio, are brilliant. The villa is well equipped and very comfortable, with a great swimming pool, lovely gardens, and plenty of seating areas. Amenities are all near by, and this was a great place to stay and explore the area (Zafferana 5 mins, Mt Etna 40 mins, Taormina 40 mins, Castiglione di Sicilia 30 mins). There are a couple of very reasonably priced supermarkets 5 min drive away, so easy to stock up on food and drink. The restaurants in Zafferana that we tried were fantastic. All in all, we would thoroughly recommend staying at this wonderful villa.

“Great house to explore Etna and east Sicily from”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Quirky accommodation in a house the owners live in during the winter so it's well looked after. Kitchen has everything, lounge is cosy and bedrooms in the roof are fine. It is on a busy road but we didn't really notice the sound.

“Casa di Noi is a lovely, quirky property in a beautiful setting with a clear view of Mount Etna.”
Reviewed 3 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This property stood out from the rest when searching online and it didn't disappoint in reality. The property is uniquely furnished, is well equipped and a good size. It is set in a beautifully maintained garden with fruit, herbs and salad (plus eggs from the chickens) available to guests. The position of the property is ideal for visiting the many attractions on the East side of the island. Emilio and Eleanora were great hosts, very welcoming and helpful. We would highly recommend this property for holidaying in Sicily.

“Charming set up and captivating volcano”
Reviewed 11 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed in Casa di Noi with our three children aged 11, 6 and seven months. Emilio and Eleonora are wonderful hosts and went out of their way to make us feel at home. The house is beautiful, clean and with great facilities. The garden is without rivals: cared for and green, every corner hides a new discovery. The vegetable patch and the hens: an unexpected plus. We could make the most of the fresh produce and the eggs (with the occasional escaping hen, much to the amusement of the children!). And, of course, we all loved the pool with its views on Mt Etna! We were seduced by the house, the people and the trip to the top of the volcano that is a must even with young children. Our week could not have been better. Thank you.

Very spacious house with wonderful garden and pool. Eleanora and Emilio were perfect hosts. The house is very well equipped, great kitchen. Plenty of space to sit outside. The veg garden was a real bonus, and still plenty of produce in mid Sep, including lots of herbs. Have never seen such a healthy plot of basil! Good location for exploring this part of Sicily.
Had a long drive from Palermo, then got lost when I came off the autostrada, more my fault than poor directions.
