We arrived late in the evening at the end of September. Since the entrance is not that easy to find, - the appartement is located in a gated community - Lia and her son Pedro waited in a car to guide us. The area is secured by an automatic door, which gave us an additional feeling of safety. Lia and Pedro gave us a warm welcome and surprised us with a basket of fruits, another one of sicilian cakes and juice and water bottles in the refrigerator. We found everything as described. The only thing one should be aware are the single beds, they are merely for children and a not too small adult will have some difficulties to stretch. There is a piscine for the community open in summer, the beach is in 3 min walking distance, it is gravel with the advantages and disadvantages, and it was not crowded at all. There is a small market very close to get the essentials for breakfast etc. A restaurant is close, too, but the much better one ("Mare Kambo") is about 3 km to the north. Anyhow, Pedro gave us a great collection of restaurant recommendations in the vicinity of Fondachello. The location of the appartment is great, Etna is very close, Taormina is les than 1/2 hour to drive and even a day trip to Agrigent (valley of temples) or to Lipary islands incl. Stromboli via Milazzo is possible. Pedro was all the time approcahble ^for any question and took much care for us to feel like wecome guests.
