“Beautiful apartment, not great location”

Casa Marco Polo is as lovely as it appears on the pictures - well -equipped and very clean. Spacious and a thoughtful welcome pack on arrival. Aircon everywhere which we were grateful for. However, our stay was spoiled by the location. There is a restaurant next door which is extremely noisy and the staff shout at each other constantly. Their kitchen is opposite the ensuite so you are very close. They can also look down onto the pool area. Also there is a dog who lives a few doors away who loves barking.The front of the property faces a noisy road looking onto other properties. There are many annoying scooters at all times of the day.
While we were there, one of the aircon units kept dripping lots of water which was so annoying but, despite reporting it, the house keepers did nothing. I was worried about ruining the bedroom wall.
The pool area is small but nicely kept, but a shabby house obscures the view of Etna and casts shade onto the garden in the late afternoon.
That said, Torre Archirafi is a charming little place at night and lots of well-behaved people congregate here to eat and drink. La Terraza restaurant was beautiful and we enjoyed sitting by the sea with a late night drink.
If you could move this property up the coast to one of the more touristy destinations , you would pay a hefty price tag. So you choose between quality and space or location with a higher cost.
We had a fantastic holiday in Sicily.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property , and we are so happy you appreciated our property that was extensively renovated throughout.
I also can understand your concern re noise in Sicily .
Culturally this is the norm for this region , the people are very expressive and communicative however never rude, and the European summer holiday season is the peak , where the Europeans all descend to Sicily (The population triples) for the color and vibrancy . The Restaurant next door is very noted and to our surprise no longer there , however they were made aware of this problem and of course made all efforts to quiet down . as this is closed this season , guests will enjoy a much quieter situation.
Sicily is truly a contradiction in many ways however I and many others do keep coming back year after year for more.

“Great modern place with swimming pool”
Reviewed 1 April 2016 for a stay in September 2015

We selected this village as it was close to lots of sites in Sicily. Finding the Terrace was a bonus clean modern and very comfortable. We have stayed a number of times on ours visits to Sicily. The apartment had everything we needed, very comfortable beds. Well equiped kitchen and bbq in the garden and on the roof terrace. Even bikes to go riding around the area. The pool and garden setting was a lovely place to spend time relaxing. The view from the roof terrace was amazing with views of Mt Etna. Hosts Michael and Marika made our stay enjoyable and offered lots of suggestions on places to eat and visit. If you love cooking check out the local fish market in Riposto great range of fresh fish. If you want to enjoy a stunning view of Mt Etna head to the Marina at Riposto 5 minute drive and walk on the sea wall. You get a wonderfull clear view of the mountain in the morning.
