A very affordable and pleasant apartment. It is very modern, clean and spacious - two bedrooms and a fold out double in the lounge room. Shower worked well; has a washing machine and a lovely clean open kitchen - great for families doing the own cooking thing. Sweeping views of the sea on one side and views of Mt Etna on the other. Nearby to two good restaurants and a fabulous pastry shop - cannola to die for. We hired a car - don't know about the public transport. If going to Sicily again I'd book this one.
Stayed at Oasi Del Foumefreddo farmhouse for 4 nights in March 2013 and on the whole the stay was pleasing indeed. I was slightly disappointed that neither matches nor a kettle were available and had to make arrangements ourselves. However, on the whole our stay was very pleasant indeed.
Farmhous is located in the outskirts of Fiumefreddo in the middle of a natural reserve. Are was very peaceful during this time of year. Please note that you need your private transport to get around.
Definitely a good accomodation for those travelling on a budget.

Our friends had stayed twice before at these apartments and we had high hopes. Unfortunately, the apartment did not live up to those hopes! On arrival, we were disappointed and tried to get the apartment changed, but this proved impossible. Our apartment, 3C, was gloomy, on two levels and quite dangerous. The upper level, containing the bed, was squeezed under the low sloping roof and we both suffered from heads bumped against the wooden beams. The lower level, with the bathroom, living room and kitchen, was accessed by a steep spiral staircase, painted in a rust colour. Negotiating this at night, to visit the loo, nearly caused us both to fall and was really a hazard. There were no facilities to hang towels or wet clothes after swimming and the one window overlooked a building site!
It also overlooked a much more pleasant apartment in the same complex with a lovely roof-top terrace, which looked lovely! Our advice is to book through the staff directly at the hotel. We stayed for ten days and it would have been much better to discuss with the staff, who speak good English, exactly which apartment from the 17 available would suit your needs best.
The really good part of our stay was the kindness and assistance from the reception staff who had their office on the same floor. Their help with local knowledge and booking excursions was invaluable.
Great hotel! Excellent location! Clean and very unique rooms. Staff are extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome! This hotel is new and is still in the process of being finished, but was still worth the price. I hope to return when it is completed.
