Cottage overview - owner's description

I Tre Alberi is a nineteenth century refurbished cottage by the sea, in the Eastern (Ionian) coast of Sicily. The Property has two units (The Houses of the Palm and the Carob Tree).

The place sleeps up to 5 people, every unit has its kitchen, one toilet with shower, and one terrace.

I Tre Alberi is immersed in a lush Mediterranean garden, with local plants and a citrus orchard. The garden is approx. 2000 square mt (over 20,000 sq feet) and provides a discrete environment to those guests who prize privacy and quiet.

The place is across the road from the beach of Giardini Naxos. Within walking range you can find pebbles, rocks or fine sandy beaches, catering for all tastes. You will be well connected to Airports (Catania is a 40' drive), trains (the train station of Giardini Naxos-Taormina is less than a km away), highways (Giardini Naxos- Taormina Sud exit) and in a perfect spot to enjoy both the seaside, and the volcano Etna, the highest in Europe and the second most active in the world.

I Tre Alberi offers a unique blend, by being both by the beach and secluded. Offers a stunning view from its numerous terraces and the quiet garden. It is a strategic spot for the active traveller who wishes to visit Eastern Sicily, a perfect crib for the lazy dweller who only wants to swim and sunbathe, and a well-placed trampoline for the socialite who wants to enjoy the nightlife in Taormina and Catania.

The Carob Tree House is located 60 m to Sea of Giardini Naxos, and in the town center (opposite the Town Hall).
Close to Giardini Naxos Natural Park , has a splendid view on Taormina, the garden and the citrus orchard.
It is very easy to reach markets, restaurants and bars.
Has a kitchenette-living room, 1 bathroom, an ample terrace (perfect for dining outside or hanging around).
The train passing nearby can be a nuisance for light sleepers, but this accommodation is the quietest in our property).
Sleeps up to 5 people (2 double/twin bedrooms plus one extra bed in the living room).

Local attractions : Taormina, a number of restaurants (fish and local specialties), bar, discos, Sea actiivities (snorkeling, kayaking, diving). Beach just across the road, many possible excursions.

From Tiverton, United Kingdom Oct 2007

Stunning views, great villa, ideal sittuation close to everything you would need. Would not recommend to the elderly as there is alot of steps to get you up there. Overall we were very pleased with it !


From Reading, United Kingdom Jul 2007

The actual apartment was very nice with a great central location but the hallway, stairwell leading up to it were dingy. The elevator was out of commission but some renovations were going on.
We felt that we could have had somewhat better service from our landlord, for example
1. Arrival procedure : on arrival we were met by the owners representative who didnt really know much about the apt. There were no instructions in the apt on how to operate the tv, internet, stove etc. The landlord did call us later that evening and answered our questions.
2. Minor annoyances : there was very little tp, even tho we had been promised 2 rolls! Very little dishwashing liquid which was important because the dishwasher didnt work after the first load. The landlord said hed come over to fix it but he never arrived or contacted us about it. Theres a sewer smell in the bathroom which should be looked into. He was always very polite and apologetic but we felt that he was otherwise preoccupied.

Reply from I Tre Alberi

Hi BeatriceMy reply in detail:1. The reason you were not met by either Niki or I was because, as I told your husband in advance, it was my daughters 5th birthday the day that you arrived (and we also had a wedding to attend). It was unusual.. Sorry.2. The elevator is being replaced with a shiny new one! Totally out of my control and, unfortunately for you, it is nearly complete!3. We take on board the comment re instructions. We normally explain all these face to face but as a result of this feedback, we have prepared a welcome sheet which we can also email to clients.4. The dishwasher broke towards the end of your stay and this was very unfortunate. Please note as well that it was clearly stated beforehand that things such as washing up liquid are not normally left for clients (although we have now left a new one and will in future), just as I pointed out that coffee filters were not. However, there was a full box of dishwasher tablets! Please also note that I did tell you that I had organised for a repair man to look at the dishwasher as the description over the phone told me enough that it was a problem I could not resolve. 5. "Sewer smell". I have investigated this and there was some blockage which is now fixed. I was not made aware of this during your stay. Had I have been, I would have obviously got someone there straight away.I am pleased that our flat still got a positive score because the review suggests otherwise. I feel that the impression of us is unfair and does not correspond to other reviews here or your total score, particularly considering the amount of correspondence that took place before you arrived, where I feel we were nothing but helpful. I also gave you my Skype details to try to ensure that you did not waste money on telephone calls and we responded withign a very short time if we could not take a call (such as when I was driving home when you called).


From Guildford, United Kingdom Nov 2006

Lovely location, great base for touring. Very quiet and pretty, just what we wanted. Well equipped and comfortable. When we come to Kefalonia again, we will stay there. Reassuring having a 24 hour concierge and lovely to be met at the airport and guided to the property by such a lovely gentleman. Will be back. Thanks.

From Shrewsbury

Lots of steps to climb, but worth it for the good views of the bay. Lots of space, and would recommend for a nice relaxing stay, but still close to to the beach and pleanty of eating places!


From London

A very homely and comfortable top floor apartment of a authentic 2 floor house. The steps up there are not too bad once you get used to them and its worth it for the view and peace and quiet. The terrace gets a lot of sun and the house is well equipped. the owners were friendly and reassuring. the only down side is the lack of any air conditioning as the flat gets quite stuffy and hot at night - and if you leave windows open, youll get bitten to death by mosquitoes!

The Carob House is a really romantic house, with a wonderful view of the Sea and of the Taormina Gulf. A large garden with Bananas, Chicas, Carob, Lemons own the house. The Sea is very near and the Giardini-Naxos Natural Park too.
