Mount Etna - skiing on a volcano: Torre Archirafi is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea e 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 700 m 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!

Bicycle path Torre Archirafi-Alcantara: The cycle path Torre Archirafi - Alcantara develops for a distance of approximately 12.700 km, mostly flat course and sometimes with a minimum slope, close to 0. The route crosses the territories of Riposto, Mascali, Fiumefreddo and Calatabiano but involves the whole area of the Etna base. The cyclists will travel along a favoured route, with functional and convenient relax areas, a safe path, signed with information panels and tourist signs.

Simply great!

  • 5 of 5

A sweet and relaxing fairy-tale dream… We just came back from two weeks holiday in Casa Afrodite. My husband and I truly felt refreshed, like after a long and nice sleep. My two kids, John and Esther were very happy to finally have so much space where to play. Thank you everybody, especially Francesco, the keeper. It was exactly what we were looking for and we will surely come back to charge our battery again. Grazie ancora! :)

Ein sehr schönes Urlaubsdomizil mit wenigen Einschränkungen

  • 3 of 5

Es war ein sehr schönes Urlaubsdomizil, allerdings schwer zu finden, trotz guter Beschreibung. Die sehr freundlichen und äußerst hilfsbereiten Sizilianer in einer Autowerkstatt telefonierten den ihnen bekannten Francesco herbei. Die Anlage ist wirklich super schön, allerdings vermiesten uns die äußerst bluthungrigen Mücken den Aufenthalt. Trotz traumhaften Wetters war das draußen Sitzen weder am Morgen noch am Abend möglich.

Der Service vor Ort (Francesco und seine Mutter) war äußerst freundlich und zuvorkommend. Alles war sauber und gepflegt. Handtücher wurden zweimal gewechselt.

Ein Auto ist dringend erforderlich, da die Anlage doch ca. 1,5 km außerhalb von Torre Archcirafi liegt und die Straße in den Ort wegen der "rasenden Autofahrer" nicht zum Laufen in den Ort einlädt.

Trotzdem haben wir die zwei Wochen vor Ort genossen, denn es gibt viel zu sehen auf der Insel. Insbesondere die Bergwelt hat uns begeistert.

Ich würde das Domizil auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.

Bella Sicilia

  • 5 of 5

Angenehmer Aufenthalt, Ferienhaus entsprach voll der Beschreibung, Gastgeber sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit, erlebten sogar einen Vulkanausbruch des Aetna mit (spektakulär, aber völlig ungefährlich, 30 km entfernt). Vorher aber unbedingt eine genaue Wegbeschreibung besorgen. Wer den richtigen Abzweig am Anfang verpasst, dem hilft dann auch die weitere Ausschilderung nicht mehr. Also etwas schwierig zu finden.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Catania Fontanarossa Airport at 39 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Torre Archirafi at 350 Metres Nearest Ferry : Catania at 16 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Il Picciolo, Castiglione di Sicilia at 45 Kilometres Nearest Train : Acireale at 5 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Giarre at 5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Torre Archirafi at 350 Metres Nearest Ski : Rifugio Sapienza, Etna at 30 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Torre Archirafi at 1 Kilometres Car: recommended

Torre Archirafi is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The place lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and between the volcano Etna and the sea. Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with a sandy beach and a promenade, is just 20 km away. Beside it 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. Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Torre Archirafi. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo“. 2 km from Torre Archirafi is a big supermarket.

Other Activities: Bicycle path Torre Archirafi - Alcantara
