About Giulia Lattanzio / Lenneke Burghouts

We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best.

Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did.

We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental.

Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.

Top villa. Highly recommended for family groups

  • 5 of 5

We (6 adults and 5 kids 0-13 years) have several times rented villa through, and never been disappointed. But this villa is truly on top of what we have experienced so far. Idylically located in lemon plantation, Mt. Etna towering to the west and the Mediterranen sea to the east. The unspoilt village Riposto within easy reach by foot with several restaurants and local shops. Within short driving distances you even reach some of the most "necessary" attractions like Mt. Etna with the entire surrounding National Park, the incredible village of Taormina and not least the Aeolian Islands Vulcano, Stromboli etc.

We were fortunate and had a whole week with sunshine and good temperatures, so we virtually lived in the pool and on the terrace, using the outdoor kitchen facilities. The pool is huge and great for the kids, and is safely fenced to prevent accidents.

On top of all this we had excellent help and assistance from our kind hosts, Mr. and Mrs Foti, they did all they could for us to get the most out of our stay in Sicily. Definitely a place where we will recommend and where we would like to return!

Lovely well equipped large villa set in a citrus grove. nice pool friendly owners and plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

Lovely old farmhouse with plenty of room. - we were a party of 5 but there is space for 3 couples and four children and a baby cot. Set in lovely gardens and its own citrus orchard with plenty of outside seating and tables around a nice pool. Owners very friendly and supplied us with fresh produce from the garden, eggs and wine. Riposto is a small town with a number of shops, fish market and restaurants. I would recommend restaurant Botti on the sea front for great pizza and large portions. - definitely share your starters! Riposto is centrally

placed to reach Etna, Taormina, Catania, Syracuso and Messina. I would certainly recommend this villa especially for families wanting a relaxing time.

The property was as advertised and the owners were very welcoming and helpful.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the owners were there to greet us and showed us around the house. The house was clean and well maintained.The bedrooms were very comfortable and the terrace upstairs had ample space for relaxing and eating. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the spacious gardens with a beautifu view l of Mount Etna It is a very good base to see the the east of Sicily and would highly reccommend the property to any family or group of friends who want to relax but also tour the area. Thanks, a very enjoyable week

Lovely villa well located to explore Sicily.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa, located in large gardens, great views of Etna and sea views on the other side.

The drive up to the villa isn't that promising, the area is quite run down. But once through the gates the villa is lovely and secluded.

The pool and terrace are perfect wether it is raining or sunny (we had a bit of both during our 10 day stay). Pippo and Maria (the owners) were very helpful and the daily deliveries of fruit and vegetables from the gardens were very well received.

The villa is exactly as advertised and very well presented with plenty of space.

From the villa we explored the surrounding coastline and day trip to Etna and the local beaches are a must.

Riposto is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just 10 kilometres from Acireale, a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches. The beach of Sant'Anna distances less then 3 km. Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with a sandy beach, just 20 km further on the coast. Next to Giardini Naxos we find Taormina 'the pearl of the Mediterranean' and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Pozzillo, Santa Maria la Scala, Torre Archirafi and Aci Trezza are cute seaside villages near Riposto. Travelling south, one hour’s drive away lies Syracuse.

Riposto is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea and Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated about 600 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!
