“A wonderfull time at EtnaMare”
Reviewed 26 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed at EtnaMare for one week and had a relaxing friendly holiday. It was a pleasure to be in this property.
The owners, our hosts were very warm and friendly. They showed us around. The flat was clean and comfortable and we had a spectacular view at the sea.

“We loved EtnaMare and the entire family. It’s peaceful and beautiful.”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

First, I must say that the picture of the pool and views are more amazing in real life. The grounds are wonderful with fruits and herbs you can pick. We picked cherries, lemons, oranges, and plums that were delicious. We picked our herbs from the grounds to cook. This entire experience with the land was precious and beautiful. It was just my husband and me (we were on our honeymoon) and it was very peaceful and relaxing. The City of Santa Venerina is very quiet so if you want more “action” it’s about 15 minutes away. There are several vineyards nearby which Nadia and Dario can help you with. You will live like a true Italian here. Angelo and Teresa (the mom and dad) are great! We had a cooking class with the family which was one of our most memorable events on our Italy trip. It started off with us going to the fish market in Catania. If you like cooking and Italian food, we recommend you do it. I’ve cooked the Pasta alla Norma a couple times already as well as the zucchini salad. Teresa’s cooking was amazing and a recipe from her mom! The apartment was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The only I would point out as a negative is the size of the shower. It was a bit tight and small for American standards. We look forward to going back.

We love to share our home and take the opportunity to meet different (but often like-minded) people from all over the world. My parents - a builder and a landscape architect, respectively - designed and built the property. Now that they are retired, they provide all of their time to the care of the little paradise they have built to ensure that all of our guest enjoy their stay. Dad picks fruit for guests or shows them the orchard so they can pick it up on their own. Mom opens her kitchen when guests want to experience the traditional cuisine.
We would like to thank this fantastic couple who gave us the opportunity to realize the first cooking class. A memorable experience that we then repeated, benefiting from their precious advice and good times spent together. Nadia

“Exceptional views with added spectacle of an erupting Mount Etna”
Reviewed 9 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

A wonderfully relaxing holiday in this beautiful part of the world. On the outskirts of Santa Venerina, this special place will provide you with a memorable holiday. The facilities are excellent from the large swimming pool to the fully equipped villa/ apartment. A great location to bring a large group of people as the various villas can accommodate up to 25-30 people with 2 swimming pools and wonderful lemon and orange groves. Each morning you can pop out to the orange grove and pick your oranges to juice ---- the evening the lemons can be used for the G&T on the terrace. You can get your 5 a day !!!! Would definitely recommend this location and thanks to Angelo, Nadia and Fabio for the hospitality !

Thank you for taking the time to share this beautiful review following your stay with us at EtnAmare. It is great to see that the assistance provided by the family, and the visit to our second property, contributed positively to your experience.The huge plot of land of five hectares is divided into two different properties with independent entrance gates, pools and gardens. EtnAmare is a large villa divided into 4 apartments with a 25-meter pool. On the opposite side lies a luxury villa with a private pool. We look forward to welcoming you again in one of our properties!
