The house gave us space enought, beutiful views, funcional rooms, large garden and nice possibilities for cooking. We were always touring around in different places on the East Coast and Etna by our car. The house gave us a perfect base. Thank you Francesca and Dino for guiding, help and all...

It was steeped with history and carachter and is absolutely beautiful and stunning. We were 9 adults and 3 small children and Lillana had no trouble accommodating us. There are 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms so enough space to move around. You can see views of mount etna and we saw the volcano erupt and you can see lava flowing down from the rooftop of the castle. On the other side you can see views of the Ionian Sea and have breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea. The pictures of the pool do not do justice to the actual size. The pool was much larger than we expected and probably 15-20metres with a diving board and a deep end. The pool was highlight for the children and they never wanted to leave. We had a really delightful stay and Liliana was very helpful throughout welcoming us with chocolate cake and a few other essentials like milk, toilet paper etc. She also helped with best tourist locations and sight seeing. I would definitely recommend this property it is so beautiful and the views were amazing.i had no problems booking and paying through owners direct and this was my first time. Would definitely book again. Thank you for a delightful stay. Junaid

The owner, Michele, is your life-line, and he could not be more helpful. However, there is nothing in Pozzillo - so ask Michele for a basic grocery shop if you are arriving late. There is a tiny pizzeria and a bar, but they seem to be erratically open, and frequented by true Sicilian males. There is a fish market (kiosk) daily, and while I really enjoyed seeing the boats gently chugging in, I am not really into fish. The villa is STUNNING!! There is a very good supermarket 20 minutes away, and frankly, you come to this place to get away from it all. It is like all Sicily, very well built, but with a gentile faded grandeur. But the showers are hot, the toilets work, and this is why we go away! Do bring mosquito repellent, as they LOVE the English!! We actually only had a problem one night, but always good to be warned. You come here to have that balcony almost over the sea. It is just amazing, as it makes you stop: which as a hard working professional I REALLY value. Waking up in the morning, opening the shutters and the windows, and having the sun beating through to the bed is incredible. To have that noise of the sea, and that balcony to have a glass or two. I would certainly go back to this villa.
