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).

5 out of 5 people recommend staying here
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.
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.
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!
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!
