Quirky and interesting building. Plenty of space, lots of different places for different people to sit to get away from group (inside, outside under-cover or not). Great view of Etna from (one of the) balcony (ies). Kids loved the wi fi. Everyone enjoyed the pool table. Owner was very helpful. It was difficult to find first time, and we were late by the time we found it, but it was not an issue. On the downside there weren't really enough wine or water glasses for 10 of us, and the beds were merely satisfactory. We didn't discover anything within walking distance worth walking to. Pistachio ice cream and brioche bun recommeded!

I would like say a special thanks to Mario and Ketty the owners, we had major problems finding our way to the villa our mistake and ended up god knows where but Mario came looking for us and he took us to the villa. Our son is going to miss the lovely pool as he used it every day from early morning and we will miss the relaxing atmosphere and tranquil villa and the area. Overall a special holiday with special accommodation and wonderful helpful owners who where only a text away if needed.
