                                                              We had a fabulous stay at this villa. The vast supply of toys, together with the fantastic pool kept our 2 and 4 year old boys more than entertained. Carmelina was the perfect host, providing a fantastic welcome lunch and kindly joining us at the hospital when our son broke his collerbone, to provide some much needed translation.

                                                              An amazing place in the middle of Sicily island

                                                              In my opinion, it is really unusual to find a resort so rich , in the meantime, in natural beauty, historical master pieces and delicious flavours. And, overall, an unforgettable estate with mediterranean plants and flowers, a terryfic terrace with viene on the sea, and all around the inebriant smell of oranges, lemons and rosemary. The villa, which is property of a famous Italian architect, has got luxurious furniture. Last but not least, at only five km, there is One of the most famous golf course in the Mediterranean area.
