“We've had a fantastic family holiday - Sicily lived up to all our expectations”
Reviewed 18 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Tre Alberi Carob House is in a wonderful location. We arrived by bus from Cantania airport, the bus stop is as close as it could be across the road. With some helpful navigation from Andrea we found our way (eventually!) to the top terrace.

It really is a trek up several flights of stairs, so don't be mislead, you do need to be physically fit to lug your bags to the top floor!

The photos of the accommodation are a good likeness: the plus points are that it is very private, quiet, lots of outdoor terrace space with two large umbrellas and wonderful views. We love animals, so the cat and dog that kept popping up to greet us was great - but its not for every one.

From a practical point of view the water supply sent off a couple of times, but each time the problem was resolved. The wifi was weak - but we used our own mobile data, and the TV didn't work - but we didn't need it anyway! Major issue was the lack of large fans - we found two small fans, but as we hit a heat wave I almost resorted to buying a large fan! - but we got used to the heat by the end of the week.

As a base for holiday it was great - we made full use of the bus service, so didn't feel we should have booked a car. We swam before breakfast every morning - a quick 3 minutes from door to beach.

We've left a beach umbrella and two beach mats for the next lucky visitors!

Take time to explore the area, it has lots to offer.

I would recommend this holiday rental to SOME of my friends - others might find it too challenging!

Thank you for making our holiday so easy.

Our family stayed at the Palm and Carob tree apartments, which make up a private and spacious property with big rooms and balconies. The balconies have wonderful views of the bay, and are perfect for eating out on. The apartments have basic no frills equipment, but the caretaker Giuliano lives close by and was happy to help with anything extra we needed. You need to be relatively fit to manage the steps, especially in the heat, but thankfully the shops and beach are very close.

If you are travelling without a car, it is ideal as the bus to Catania airport stops right outside, and the bus to Taormina is across the road.

I can definitely recommend the property, especially if you value space and privacy over luxury.
