Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in March 2018

My boyfriend and I stayed in this beautiful house for a week. The house is newly refurbished and tastefully decorated, and has a lovely terrace facing the vineyards with a gorgeous view of Mount Etna. We were both pleased to see that the owners were extremely kind and welcoming, and always available to exchange a few friendly words with us.
We will definitely be back soon!

Reviewed 27 February 2016 for a stay in September 2015

We really love this place, it’s just special…we’ve been here three times now and we just can’t get enough! My boyfriend and I spent 7 days last September at the new maisonette “Il Gelso” within the location of Dietroserra that we know very well by now. This accommodation is very clean, spacious, comfortable and lovely furnished. The kitchen is equipped with everything you might need, the cooking facilities are excellent. It has a wonderful terrace with views over the surrounding countryside, on one side you see the volcano Etna and on the other you catch a glimpse of the seaside in the distance. We had breakfast and dinner on this terrace in full sunshine. It is so peaceful and idyllic, that you may want to just stay there and not move…but it would be a pity since there is so much worth seeing in the surroundings! The owners were very hospitable, we also tasted their red wine – delicious! Thank you Gae and Michele, see you next time ! :-)
