                                                                                                      We decided on this Villa as it was very spacious and offered the sleeping accomadation we required of up to 10-12 people as we had a family wedding in Taormina and it served it's purpose very well. Its very spacious but is basic with no frills or extra's but thats not a criticism as we knew exactly what we was renting but we didn't expect the strong smell of tobacco smoke as we arrived and i would recommend Michele to stop any future occupants from smoking within the villa, the stunning views over the mediterranean sea from the balcony are breathtaking and if anyone is able to rise at the crack of dawn you will witness the most beautiful sunrise ever over over the mediterranean sea. The rooms are very large and all the beds and linen are clean and very comfortable, the kitchen and dining room offer the bare esentials for what was needed and was more than adequate. It was ideally situated for my sons wedding and is in a ideal spot to venture out to other places of interest but the town of Pozzillo is a dead beat town with hardly any human activity, shops or anything whatsoever of interest and i strongly anybody renting this villa to make sure they have there own means of transport as the local bus or any public service is non-existant. We met Michele on the day of our arrival and his English was good and he was very friendly and accomadating and was very discreet and kept his distance and maybe too much as we couldn't log on to the wi-fi (three adults tried & failed) we contacted him on th the phone number given about wi-fi issues and messages left about the problem as well as our one day early departure on numerous occasions but no reply and contact was received from Michele prior to our departure we left one day early without handing over the keys to him. Also guests need to obtain Mosquito repellent as we were bitten beyond belief on our first night of arrival. But all in all our stay still receives a 5 star rating, only recommendation i can offer is, 1. Don't let Michele leave until all your appliance, Phones Laptops etc are connected to the wi-fi. 2. Michele stops all smoking within the villa, 3. Make sure occupants have their own transport to venture out of Pozzillo. 4. Come prepared with any anti Mosquito repellant on your arrival or you will regret it. 5. Make sure your up early enough to witness a sunrise over the Mediterranean as apart from the wedding it was the next best highlight of our stay. But still VERY happy with our stay.

Like to thank Marco for all his help and adviseing us on getting to places in scilly.
