We continued our house hunters international this weekend with a trip to Trecastagni. Trecastagni is located in the foothills of Mount Etna and has a great reputation. There is one place in particular that we are going to look at just outside of town.
Our real estate guy got lost a couple of time along the way and the trip took about 45 minutes … bad start in terms of commute. He also drove like a true Italian so … the time would probably be increased if it was us driving. I have never seen so many different hand gestures in one trip… at a couple points he was applauding other drivers, while driving himself… not easy to do and not recommended.
The pictures that I took inside the house didnt really come out very well. Its 3/3 with about 2200 sqft for €1500.
- Brand new
- Nice yard
- Good neighborhood
- Layout inside was weird
- Small kitchen area
- No view
Another plus was a bar that we went to afterwards that was a short drive away.
We were overwhelmed. Since it was still in the morning we went with a couple patries and coffee. I got a cornetto, which is in the middle of the top shelf in the picture above. Jess got a bomba, which is one of the items from the bottom shelf in the picture above. Mine was great, but it would have been better if it was half the size. Jess really enjoyed her bomba, which had ham and cheese within the warm bread.
All in all we liked Trecastagni. Next we are looking at villas in Nicolosi, San Gregorio, Aci Trezza, and Aci Castello.
