It is very private and great for large groups as the house is big enough to spread out fully. The caretakers are very friendly and helpful with recommendations, food resources etc. The bay to which you have access is wonderful for swimming. The location is great, close enough to Catania but private and secluded. The views are stunning. I would definitely come back!

The garden and patio area are great for dining outside. The host wa very helpful with ideas of places to visit and there was a store cupboard of essentials we could use which was really handy. We visited many lovely places in the local area and enjoyed the local speciality pizoli (not sure on spelling) a kind of double pizza yum.
