Piera and Alessandro are the best host a guest could wish for. They made sure we would find the 'casa' by picking us up halfway and bringing us 'home' in the dark. At our arrival we found a nice little meal we could heat in the oven, a really lovely and delicious home made cake for breakfast, some wine and some drinks in the fridge. We felt very welcome. The casa was well equipped and had everything you need the first days like coffee, tea, shampoo, toilet paper and even cotton swaps and insect spray. During the week Piera and Alessandro brought us clean sheets and towels. They thought about everything, gave us a list with suggestions for restaurants, shops, supermarkets, fuel and markets and sent us messages about special festivities during our stay. We had a great time in Sicilia and the casa and would like to go back someday.

We had a very good time at Olga's house. The contact with Alessandro e Piera went very smooth. They picked us up from Catania airport and we had a stop at the supermarket on the way. There is no supermarket close by so good to buy on forhand. Alessandro stopped at a kiosk an bought us a sicilian refreshing drink. There was an other surprise waiting at Olga's house, a bottle of wine, lasagna and a cake prepared by Piera. This was great to arrive like this. Also the fridge was filled with some water and drinks. Coffee, sugar, oil etc. All was there. The house was clean and cosy decorated. We slept very well. In the garden the breakfast was served by the fruit trees. A nice terrace around. The house was close to a beautiful hiking path around the Etna. If you do not like hiking, you definitely need a car, as there is no public transport around. Alessandro e Piera checked a few times with us if all was ok and they even checked out the busses for our next trip. We were pleasantly surprised that they even brought us to the bus station in Catania. Thank you so much!! We very much appreciated your warm welcome and care.

Alessandro and Pierra were lovely hosts and made us feel very welcomed. The house felt more like a home, very clean, cosy and quiet - a perfect place to get away from the rush of routine. The woods are also very close by and make for a beautiful hike with nature. Over all we really enjoyed our time at 'Olga's Place' and would definitely consider returning perhaps for a longer stay and to better explore Pedara!

We experienced both meetings with Alessandro as welcoming, clear and attentive. We found that Olga’s place was generously packed with supplies including a brochure with a wide variety of activities, directions and sight to visit in the area. A soon as the neighbor dogs have accepted you, the balcony is a perfect place to relax. We stayed in Olga’s place during November, so using the fireplace is not only cosy but necessary to heat up the place. Overall we had a positive experience staying at Olga’s place, and if you have a car it is a convenient location from where to go to Etna.

Alessandro E Piera User ProfileAlessandro E Piera is a superhost.

Alessandro e Piera, sposati dal 1993 ed hanno 2 figlie.
A loro piace vivere vicino alla natura, e grazie all'amore per la natura, hanno comprato una piccola casa in zona Parco dell'Etna, del fianco Sud, dove comincia la zona boschiva del vulcano.
Essi hanno mentalità aperte e piace conoscere nuove persone di tutte le nazionalità, stando a contatto con abitudini e culture diverse, arricchendo così il loro bagaglio culturale; sono stati sempre proiettati in una dimensione internazionale, lontano dalle chiusure provinciali.
Avendo conosciuto Airbnb, vorrebbero condividere e far conoscere le bellezze della Sicilia.
A loro piace il cibo mediterraneo e conversare davanti ad un buon bicchiere di vino rosso e camino acceso.
Alessandro parla e scrive un buon livello di inglese. Al contrario, Piera lo è con il francese.
Per motivi di privacy, hanno deciso di non essere presenti in alcun 'social'.
Desiderosi ed impazienti di ricevere gli ospiti Airbnb!

Alessandro e Piera, married since 1993 and have 2 daughters.
They like to live close to the nature, and thankfully to love for nature, they bought a small house in PARK ETNA area, South flank, by the beginning of the wooden area of the Volcano.
Thanks to Alex'job, the whole family lived for 4 years an extraordinary experience abroad: in Belgium, in the heart of Europe . As a consequence they broaded their minds by knowing all nationalities new people, speaking English and French, travelling, got in touch with customs and different cultures; they have always screened in international dimensions , far away from provincial closures.
Once back to Sicily they bought the house as per hosting and having known Airbnb, they would like to continue to share the beauties of Sicily and Italy to foreign people as they did abroad, as well.
They like eating mediterranean food, make conversation in front of a good glass of red wine and fireplace.
Alessandro speaks and writes a good level of English. Conversely, Piera is confident with French language.
Due to privacy reasons, they decided not to be present in any social network..
They are looking forward to host the distinguished Airbnb guests !
