Fantastic family get away!

We stumbled upon this gem through the VRBO website and right from my first enquiry Stefania answered every query/question I had very promptly and professionally. She is an invaluable resource of information on any aspect of touring/sightseeing and anything we asked of her while on holidays was dealt with quickly and efficiently. On arrival at Catania airport Stefania had arranged for a taxi to pick us up and bring us to a nearby shopping mall and then directly to Orange park. We arrived at our country retreat and immediately we were shown to our spotlessly villa by Upitise. We availed immediately of the superb pool and then enjoyed a wonderful dinner cooked on site! We hadn't hired a car and Guiseppi very kindly dropped us to Catania one afternoon and took my husband grocery shopping another day. His kindness and also that of his wife is remarkable. He cooked a traditional Sicilian meal for us one day and his wife continually invited my daughters (3&6) to take from her store of toys!! Our villa was very comfortable and had 2 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It also had a very large table outside and a little outdoor play area about 20 metres from the back door. There was a laundry room and clothes line also next to our villa. It was cleaned almost daily and linen & towels very frequently changed. Overall we had a wonderful holiday relaxing in total seclusion by the pool and going for a stroll to the nearby shopping centre in the evenings. My daughters loved how quiet the pool was-some days we were the only people there. We arranged a car and driver to take us on the Godfather tour and also to the beach and Etna-all within an hours drive. On hindsight we should have hired a car but the driver made the touring very relaxing! We will look back on our 2 weeks in Orange park fondly and we miss the kindness & warmth of all who live & work there, M

We stayed in Orange Park for six days in August 2013. It offers everything you need. We found that travelling in the hot months means you need air conditioning in your hotel room and a pool to have a daily cooldown. Orange Park offers wonderfully equiped appartments, beautiful grounds, a dream pool and the nicest owners and personnel.

Orange Park is an Agriturismo, farm land with tourist accomodations. The appartment we stayed in was equiped with a new kitchen and looked modern yet homely.

We did not mind the shopping center nearby, it was quite convenient. When you travel, everything you see tells a story about a country and a culture. The farm activity of Orchard Park is, like the name states, an orange orchard. Orchards like these used to be a trademark for Sicily. feasability of pure agricultural grounds is however low, so these orchards become less and less common. People sell their land so orchards go and industry or commercial centers come.
It is rather unique to stay in a Sicily style orchard, especially so close to major city Catania.
Enjoy the friendly service, the peace and quiet, the easy distances to all the sights of Sicily's amazing east coast, the well kept grounds at Orange Park and the astounding view of Mount Etna!


6 August 2013 – UNITED KINDOM

We have just come back from spending a week here. The accommodation was very good and very comfortable and the views from our patio of mount Etna were great. The pool area was lively with plenty of shelters from the sun. The owner Giuseppe and Stefania were lovely and helpful and the srilankan caretaker was nice, he spoke good English, cleaned the villa daily if we wanted and changed the towels regularly. One negative for us was that the jacuzzi hot tub wasn't working all week which was a real shame as we always choose accommodation with a hot tub. Also as previously mentioned this accommodation is right by a shopping centre so if you don't want to see this then it might not be for you. Saying this you could not hear any noise and it was very tranquil at orange park. This is the only reason (location) why I gave it a 4 rating. I didn't quite realise it would be so close to the shopping centre. But overall fantastic accommodation and nice people.


26 July 2013 - ISRAELE

This place is really really nice, the service is very good, and the owner is very kind and helpfull.
But you have to know that it is a few hundred meters away from a great shopping area. If you look to the right direction - it's great. But the sight of huge neon signs at the shopping center will probably not be the greatest experience of your trip. HOWEVER, the location is really really good to travel on the East coast of Sicily, you can easily travel to Etna, Taormina, Siracusa, Noto and the Baroqe Towns, without having to enter any city (like Catania for Ex.). And considering the villas are really nice, and the staff is great - I think this is a very very good option.

Great Start to Sicily Honeymoon Trip

Before we even arrived and were making arrangements to stay at Orange Park the staff were great with communication and making arrangements/answering questions by email. We booked our stay while still in Canada and they were able to accommodate a later arrival. We were greeted by staff and the owner Giuseppe at the front and quickly shown our accommodations. We were immediately taken with the welcoming atmosphere and as the grocery stores was already closed, Giuseppe personally made a fabulous Italian dinner for us along with breakfast the next day. The grocery store and town along with sight seeing locations such as Mt. Etna are close driving distances away. It was great to get away and enjoy the sum what secluded oasis. The pool were fabulous. And the staff were more than helpful with directions, questions and even surprised us on our last night with fresh flowers and petals on the bed. The accommodations were clean and the kitchen fully stocked with cooking supplies. We would love to come again for another visit and wish Giuseppe and all the Orange Park staff the very best!

“Delightful and relaxing”

I have stayed several times in the villa Limoni and love it!
The villa is a well furnished apartment. Very well maintained and extremely comfortable. The bed is brand new and the kitchen is equipped with all that is needed (pots, plates, microwave, american coffee machine, etc.).
Most important for me is the WiFi internet is very fast and flat screen TV with foreign channels.
They come to clean every day, if you wish, and they regularly change the towels and bedsheets.
I've got a cute terrace in my villa with table and chairs where I have some meals in complete peace and relax. On the opposite side I have a beautiful view of Mt. Etna.
The swimming pool is wonderful, made of mosaics and very comfortable stairs. I managed to take a swim even if it was not summer and loved to lie down for pleasant sun baths during lunch time.
Orange Park is also very convenient because of its location, close to the airport, close to Catania down town and very near the Centro Sicilia shopping center.
Giusepi, the owner, is very nice and friendly. He made delicious Sicilian dishes for me try taste many times! Stefania, speaking english, is very helpful for any information or requests. Just ask and they while help. Utpatissa is very kind and takes much care to attention for your room and needs.
I hope to visit Orange Park again in the near future with my family. I am sure they will love it too!

A home in your journey

What you expected convenience for your staying in journey, you can get them all in Orange Park! Stephania gave her utmost help to me when we communicated by e-mail for booking. She arranged a villa with perfect facility for me, booked a taxi to pick up us from Catania Train Station, and helped me to rent a auto-gear car on a cheap price beyond my imagination. The whole Orange Park is quiet and peaceful, but don't think you have to stay at villa day and night. Center Sicily is behind of park, only 10~15 mins by walking. If you wanna explore Sicily by self-driving, only 3~5 mins from park to entry of A8 highway. Caruso gave us some dewy vegetables that his staff planted in his park. He recommened fabulous Porto Palo and marzamemi to us, we finished our seaside summer album. The staff who work for Caruso very polite and would like to meet all of our requirements. In a word, if you stay at Orange Park, it will make your trip be glory and memorable.

We Felt at Home!

The hospitality of the owner and the staff was extremely comforting. Two couples traveling together shared one three bedroom villa with two baths, kitchen/living room and covered outdoor dining area. There was a brick bar-b-que available, which we did not use. We did take advantage of the pool as well as the laundry facilities. The staff is exceptional! We were assisted by the guest coordinator on numerous occasions to help translate between English and Sicilian. She helped us arrange our schedule with our family (who speak only Sicilian, with us speaking primarily English). Stephania truly went out of her way to help with communications. The housekeeping staff was extremely responsive and helped us well beyond our expectations - even by taking us on a tour of the family vegetable garden! The property is beautiful and waking up to the sight of Mt. Etna every morning is amazing! Sharing Bingo - the property "mascot" - kept us from missing our dogs from home. During our two week stay we visited Siracusa several times and toured the city with family. We visited Agrigento to see ancient Greek ruins. We went to the top of Mt. Etna (wear a coat). Taormino is also a "must see". Also, Catania - the home of the canoli - is a beautiful city with many hidden treasures - from the Duomo to the Roman Theatre. All in all - a wonderful time at a wonderful place!

Orange park est vraiment le paradis sur terre. Les maisons sont très confortables et très agréables. L'emplacement est parfait et merveilleux avec une vue magnifique sur l'etna. La famille du propriétaire et les personnes qui gèrent le site sont d'une extrême gentillesse, tous très accueillants et délicieusement sympathiques. On se sent comme en famille.

"Can't Say enough good things about it"

I traveled on business and stayed at Orange Park from May until August 2011. I've traveled numerous times in other countries and this was by far the best experience I've ever had! The people here are incredible and that's what really makes the difference. My children stayed with me for 2 months and had a woderful time as well. Gated access makes it safe and secure. With a mall and grocery nearby it makes for easy shopping for any daily items but you're secluded enough on the several acres of orange groves to truly relax. The pool was always clean and never crowded. Brick grills located outside in 2 areas. Easy access to major roads. Has outlets for both European and US style plugs. Internet access, also.
Don't expect hotel treatment like in the US...expect to feel as if you have your own personal piece of Sicily.

“Quiet Restful Place”

My sister and I stayed for 14 days and enjoyed every minute of it. We found a nice quiet corner of Sicily that treated us like family. The owner and all of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Our villa was very clean and comfortable. Although the pool is a shared space most days we were the only ones using it and it was wonderful. Even though a shopping mall is very close by, it did not interfere with the country setting and surroundings. We would definately recommend this destination to anyone looking for a fantastic holiday.

“loved it”

We spent a week in this lovely little complex end of aug/sept 2011 handful of charming villas with a shared pool .there were 7 of us and we hardly saw anyone else at the pool so was more private than shared. villas very clean and tidy and lovely staff who always
stopped for a chat and cleaned the villa changed bins etc on very regular basis stefania was particularly helpful sorting out taxi/hire car and anything else we needed. fab place to stay made even better with perfect weather  only downside was the car hire.this was arranged through orange park as thy have connections with a local garage. not sure if this is just italy in general but there seemed to be no care to the condition etc of the car(dont expect europcar or hertz style) and we had to exchange our people carrier as it broke down(once again stefania to the rescue and had it changed for a smaller car within 2 hours delivered to the villa) would def return and had a fab holiday.thanku to stefania and your lovely staff xx

“Beautiful place, wonderful people”

We stayed at Orange Park last Sept. for 21 days. It was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend this place to other people visiting Sicily. The owner and his staff were very friendly and attentive. There was a minor issue when we first arrived that was quickly resolved to our satisfaction. The place was clean, the villas were in perfect condition and the surrounding grounds very beautiful. We will definately return to Orange Park.

 “A Peaceful Oasis--right next door to Catania”

Well, I have been to 'Orange Park' two years in a row with my wife and young daughter. It IS close to commercial centres, Catania and a short 15minute drive from the airport, which for me is a MAJOR plus because I hate driving for
miles and hours to get to my villa once I've arrived at my holiday destination.However, if you want total 'Country side Calm'--Orange Park will not be for you--look elsewhere.
If you want a nice environment, close to supermarkets(for all those food trips to feed the family), close to Catania( for visits to a very 'different and unique' italian city like no other( in a good way), with a very nice pool if you 're not really into sea swimming, but very close to the sea if you are; plus a VERY welcoming family and helpful staff -- then Orange Park will not disappoint. Etnaland is pretty cool too as
a day out for the family--get there early though!!

“DAVVERO UN PARADISO SOLARE E FAMILIARE”

Eravamo già stati lì per un capodanno con amici, che si dichiaravano soddisfatti, ma senza rendercene conto ci siamo ritrovati, anni dopo, nello stesso posto dopo aver prenotato da internet.
Lo staff è gentilissimo, amichevole, affabile, diligente, sorridente Il tempo è stato delizioso, caldo, soleggiato e nel tepore dell'appartamento non abbiamo sofferto assolutamente il freddo la sera e nemmeno al mattino.
L'appartamento era pulitissimo, aveva tutto, anche in cucina, era tutto funzionale anche se (per insistenza nostra, perchè abbiamo desiderato un appartamento intimo e raccolto) abbiamo avuto due lettini uniti, perchè l'appartamento era attrezzato per un
ospite.
Nessun problema, era comodissimo comunque e ci hanno fornito tante trapunte.
Il bagno era piastrellato e rinnovato di recente, ogni infisso era a tenuta termica e acustica. Ci sono pure i canali sky!!!!
Stando dentro l'appartamento si ha l'idea d trovarsi in hotel... poi si apre la finestra e.... si vedono gli agrumeti!!!!!!!!!!!! E che frutta!!!
C'è un cagnolone coccolosissimo (e geloso della sua azienda) e c'è possibilità di portare il proprio pet (con dovuto preavviso!!) Prezzi assolutamente convenienti per il tanto relax che abbiamo potuto gustare.
A proposito, abbiamo avuto il piacere di assaporare gli agrumi dell'agrumeto (deliziosi!!) ed abbiamo visto la piscina... e la jacuzzi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! peccato però fossimo fuori stagione :(
Ampio parcheggio, gazebo, giardino con prato all'inglese, calma e silenzio, caldo e sole, a pochi kilometri dai negozi e dalla città... Senza parole ma molto, molto soddisfatti e rilassati.

I'm glad we choose this for a two week summer stay. It is very convenient with good access to the airport and to Catania. If you are the sort of guest who likes visiting the ancient sites and beautiful architecture of Ortigia, Siracusa, Noto, Taormina and the Aeolian Islands, or simply visiting the beach then the location is very well situated. You don't need to drive across country for miles before you reach the Autostrada network and this cuts down journey times. We had two weeks of unbroken sun and cloudless skies. When you return you can relax back in the pool, soak up the view of Etna and enjoy one of Umpatisa's wood based barbecues. Stefania was trully helpful and a great source of advice. Guiseppe's cooking was wonderful. So fresh, so healthy and wonderful both to look at and taste. He also intervened to help out when our hire car broke down. A great holiday memorable for all the right reasons.


What a great experience!

We stayed at Orange Park for three weeks and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. The accommodations were perfect and the entire staff was great. The grounds and property are beautifully maintained with a variety of flower and vegetable gardens among the orange grove. Our villa clean, comfortable and felt like home with all the conveniences and amenities of home. The staff was the best. They were very friendly, attentive and extremely helpful. I will miss my morning cup of espresso! The villa's close proximity to the the Autostrada was another advantage. This made it very easy to travel all cities and sites within Sicily. A car or driver is need since the site is not within walking distance to a city or town. We hope to return to Orange Park and would recommend it to anyone looking for a unique place on a truly amazing island.

Great location, great value, wonderful people!

My husband and I stayed at Orange Grove for five days. The villas are spacious, clean and comfortable; Guiseppe (our host) is charming and gracious; Stefania(his assistant) is fluent in English and oh so willing to be helpful, even driving us to the airport when our taxi did not come on time! The other staff members are equally warm and helpful. The location is ideal for exploring Sicily, has a great view of Mt Etna and perfect for relaxing at the end of a busy day. A car is essential, preferably with a GPS. We loved being able to breakfast in the morning on the terrace and use the free WiFi to check on the news back home. A giant mall with a huge supermarket and tons of stores just opened in June, five minutes drive away, and it's good place to shop in air conditioned comfort, All in all, Orange Grove is great find with very reasonable prices that we'd recommend to anyone going to Sicily.

Wonderful people! Wonderful grounds!

We spent 2 glorious weeks as members of the Orange Park family and left very unwillingly as our vacation came to an end. Don't let the access road fool you, beyond the entrance gate is a clean, friendly paradise reserved for those savvy enough to find this hidden gem. Giuseppe, the owner, is a love--kind, caring, outgoing and generous. His immediate staff, Stefania and Sandra, who both speak excellent English, are warm, friendly, informed and aim to please. The ground staff, Umpatista (please excuse the spelling!) is attentive to any need you might have--from finding towels, to sweeping out your unit, to building you a fire for the grill. As well, other guests were as friendly as the hosts and we have remained in contact with people we met here. Our apartment (2 bedrooms/bath/kitchen) opened up to an eating area with a view of Etna framed in the kitchen doorway. We ate every meal there. Don't miss the dining-in service--a local cook serves a truly authentic Sicilian meal (with tablecloth and cloth napkins!) including antipasto, pasta, meat and vegetables and fruit. It reminded me of my grandmother's cooking--she was from this area. We took daily trips to places as close as Catania or as far away as Siracusa or Piazza Amerina--the entire East coast of Sicily can be easily explored from this spot--an easy off/on from the ring road around Catania. On hot afternoons or when the kids needed a break, the swimming pool and grounds provide ample amusement for everyone. Be sure to climb Mt. Etna. It is a one-in-a-lifetime adventure! Our family views this is a destination for years to come as we made friends for life in this family-friendly compound.

Our family stayed at Giuseppe's place for a blissful week. Although it's taken us a long time to write, we often reminisce about our Orange Grove days - a lovely pool, spacious, clean, cool accommodation with all conveniences and a stunning view of the enigmatic Mt Etna- all this within easy driving distance to Sicily's attractions and a short spin to Catania airport. What made our trip unique and memorable were the touching surprises from thoughtful hosts - bowls of oranges from the grove, Sicilan Pasta Al Norma and granita at the local cafe - treats we'd never have got at a hotel. The hospitality was really icing that couldn't be beaten - always helpful and considerate and never intrusive. We'd recommend it to all!

Where do I start? Our stay at Orange Park was wonderful. The property itself is lovely. 10 acres of orange trees completely fenced and gated with a view of the hills towards Etna. Since there are many cottages and a converted farm house it is the perfect intimate spot for a group of people to rent together or for an extended family. In addition to the trees, the flowers around the property were lovely. The accommodations were wonderful. Spacious, clean and well maintained. We had a full kitchen a fridge, living room plus the bedrooms. Immediately outside were a picnic table and bbq. The pool (with outdoor shower) was large and clean with a brand new gigantic covered picnic area adjacent. Also they were completing a brand new spa and massage area. The location is perfectly located. Right off the autostradas. We did day trips all over Sicily with no problem. But what made it best of all was the people, they made us feel like family. Very kind, fun and extremely helpful. Just wonderful people. Giuseppe the owner is on the property everyday and can provide you with lots of insight on the local areas and answer any question you want to know about orange groves. Stefania, goes above and beyond. She was kind enough to go with us to visit family we had never met and act as translator. She fit right in. Lastly there is Umpissa, who takes care of your every need on the property to ensure your stay is everything you need it to be. Lastly the price can't be beat. We felt like kings. Like we had our own estate. Don't miss this gem just minutes outside Catania.

Dicono di noi

Meravigliosamente colpiti!

Siamo rimasti meravigliosamente colpiti da questa perla pubblicizzata su VRBO e sin dal primo contatto via email Stefania ha risposto a tutte le nostre domande con prontezza e professionalità.
Lei è una validissima risorsa di informazioni riguardo ogni aspetto relativo ai posti da vedere ed ha sempre risposto a tutte le nostre necessità con velocità ed efficienza.
Giuseppe e sua moglie sono il massimo della cordialità e della ospitalità. Tante volte ci hanno fatto assaggiare le specialità siciliane che cucinavano, invitavano sempre le mie bambine a utilizzare i giocattoli dei nipoti e Giuseppe si è  prestato più volte a darci un passaggio in città, visto che non avevamo affittato la macchina! E' stata davvero una vacanza meravigliosa e speciale.

Rose (Inghilterra)

Vacanza bellissima in un bellissimo posto!

L'ospitalità del proprietario è confortante. La casa è comoda, luminosa e fornita di tutto. La piscina bellissima e anche le lavanderie sono molto utili. Stefania è stata davvero fondamentale per aiutarci nella comunicazione con i nostri parenti Siciliani e lo staff si è preso cura di noi oltre ad ogni aspettativa. La vista dell'Etna è meravigliosa, così come la dolce presenza del cane Bingo che non ci  ha fatto sentire la mancanza dei nostri cani... Abbiamo visitato tantissime città, compresa Catania, la casa dei “cannoli”, che nasconde moltissimi tesori... Insomma: una vacanza bellissima in un bellissimo posto!
