Lovely stay!

We have booked the Siena room and we definitely recommend this to others. Here you can enjoy some sun when you return from a long sightseeing during the day. Wonderful staff that was ready with some chill white wine, water etc when needed and it was so cheap!
Frans is a great chef and is will always recommend a great dinning spot, trips to Etna etc.
Be aware that you need a car to come around if you choose to stay here. We will definitely return some other time - at the same room!

Go to Etna and use at least two days here - see it from one side and the other. Frans knows some really good hiking rutes. Remember some good hiking boots/shoes and a cap!

Welcome to our unique home

We were visiting Zora and Franz for 3 days. Visit is in our opinion the right word. You don't stay with Z and F - you become a part of it. The unique part isn't the fact that it's located down to the water with an absolutely amazing view. Not least from the terrace where you eat breakfast and dinner.
It isn't the rooms, which are great, which makes the place so unique and memorable. It's Franz and Zora and their presence, empathy and not least pleasure that you came (and yes - we know we paid for it). But it IS a memorable experience, to sit on their terrace with the rest of the house's guests from all over the world (Lebanon, UK, Australia, etc.), and talk like we were at a family reunion.

It's like being at a big party with the family you didn't know you had. If you give a bit of yourself, you will get it back tripled.

Of course it requires, that you think it's great. We do. We thought, it was a gift.
If "you" aren't that type, then Pozzillo works excellently as a starting point for excursions to Etna for example.

Pozzillo as a holiday destination

We had the opportunity (ask Z and F) to get on a dolphin trip. It was a huge experience - there were LOTS of dolphins, who played with the boat we were in. So for 45 minutes we were in the front row at their games in the water.

A trip to the top of Etna is also recommendable - again ask Z and F. They will recommend a trip, called Guiseppe. It's a fantastic trip. There were kids (10-12 years) on our trip, so it doesn't require a diploma in mountaineering. A couple of great hiking boots (we borrowed at the place - it was incl. in the price) is a must.

We had dinner twice at Z and F - it's great food, he cooks - and as aforementioned, the food is only part of the experience. 45 € for delicious food, isn't expensive - compared to Denmark. But...... we aren't in DK - so the price is "a bit fresh". We had dinner at La Strette (recommended by them - and hereby passed along). 3 people incl. drinks - 70 €, and it's great food. The price it also the only reason, we aren't giving 5 stars. When that's been said - we can only highly recommend trying to eat there - try Friday (where there's dancing, party, etc.)

A great rural hideaway

Well we had a GPS we thought we drove the wrong way late that evening we arrived. The only house on the road, but was it a hote / B&B? .... actually not noticable in the dark, but knocked at the door and Franz and Zora opened the door to a true Italian paradise. Was guided around the ground floor and into the dining room where tables were set for dinner for 6 (we had ordered fish menu from home) and went out on the terrace and could hear the water running in the warm, but dark night. What was it for a place? After having left the suitcases at the room, and was refreshed we went to the to the dinner, where two German couples also participated (who spoke fine English). A splendid dinner and afterwards came the hosts in and talked about life in Sicily, the food and the wines .... and of course we tasted some of Franz's own wine.

Next day we opened the patio door, to a 100 m2 large private terrace with the Mediterranean on one side and Etna's spectacular silhouette on the other ...... it cant get better. A morning swim in the pool below the terrace and then breakfast in front of the large kitchen in the sun and the Mediterranean as a backdrop.

It was Sunday - and the two German couple moved out and we were invited to the great Sicilian feast, but had to say no .... we did also plan to see some of Sicily.

Recommendations for future guests

Set for itself and car is needed ..... but within easy driving distance to attractions such as Etna and Taormina ..... and there are always lots of good advice and guidance from Franz and Zora.

A bit isolated, but just the beautiful - and with a lovely view of the Mediterranean.
