“A little bit of Paradise”

Piccolo Paradiso is a great place for a holiday. Starting with the property, it is a new house but built out of traditional materials, such as lava from Etna. Inside it is not so small with a large dining table, plus sofas and easy chairs. Ouside there is a further dining table plus more chairs. It is on the slopes of Mount Etna and the view towards Catania is amazing both by day and night. But its strongest point must be the privacy and it is very rare in Sicily to have a private swimming pool for a house of this size.

Location: At a height of about 2000 feet above sea level there is a plus in that the nights are a bit cooler than by the coast, but you still get the sun during the day. You can access the Catania/Palermo and Messina/Syracuse autostradas without having to go through major towns which is another advantage. Quiet and secluded location where the use of a car is almost essential.

The owner: then the care taken by the owner Salvatore was great. He met us at the airport and guided us there: although access is no problem after you have done the route once, it would be tricky for a stranger to find it at night even with the best directions. There was a generous welcome pack. At one stage we texted Salvatore to say the toaster wasn't working, and within 24 hours he had arrived not just to check the situation but carrying a new toaster. A really charming host.

So a very good base for south east Sicily. Perhaps be careful if you have a toddler with you as the shallow end of the pool is about 1 metre deep.

Liked best: Die betten waren sehr bequem und die Dusche klasse
Liked least: das einzige, was mir persönlich nicht so gefallen hat, war die Lage.Für mich im Nachhinein doch zu weit abgelegen.Man muss alles mit dem Auto machen und ich hätte es besser gefunden morgens mal schnell zu eine Laden oder Bäcker gehen zu können.
