    "Lovely location"

    04/14/2018

    We were disappointed to find the onsite restaurant was closed causing us to scramble into a nearby town to find food. In addition, the directions on the website were not detailed enough for us to find the place, we took a wrong turn and had to call the establishment. We later saw brochures onsite that had much better directions (we'd suggest updating the directions on the website to match the brochure). The accommodation was clean and the views are beautiful. The hostess, while she spoke very little English, did her best to make our stay a good one.

    How do you expect to be a camping: basic, clean and quiet. Excellent base for excursions to Mount Etna. It must have its own means to move freely. You can have lunch and dinner at the restaurant.
