Detached property with fantastic views

4 of 5
Property was on raised pillars to take advantage of views but also gave shaded area underneath. Garden area could do with some weeding and a path to chimera. Outdoor shower was good. Well equipped, clean property and owner very helpful. Attractive marina and sandy beach 5 minutes walk. Definitely need a car to reach shops, restaurants etc. which are 20 minutes + away. We enjoyed our stay.

Lovely villa in a stunning, quiet, location

5 of 5
The villa is lovely and has real character. There are 3 big bedrooms (shared A/C), a big and elegant living room, and a (very) fully-equipped kitchen. Free Wifi was included, There are big outdoor terraces, off-street parking, garden and a great cliff-edge private swimming pool. About 100 steps down to a small pebble beach. The whole place is really well thought out and fantastic for a holiday rental for a family. And, not least, stunning views across the bay to Catania and Mt Etna - glorious to wake up to. In terns of things to improve on, there really isn't much. An A/C unit in each bedroom would be ideal (it was a very hot week when we were there), and a shower in the second bathroom would also be great. Otherwise it's pretty close to perfect. The location is a quiet village. There's one fairly basic bar/restaurant; no shops. The nearest supermarkets are in Lentini, about 20 km away. Syracuse and Catania are both a 20-30 minute drive away, with Mt Etna, Taormina, water parks, theme parks etc within 60-90 mins. But the best thing of all was the welcome and support - the owners provided a fantastic (complementary) welcome meal, with lots of Sicilian delicacies. The kitchen was really well-stocked with basics. The pool and the garden were looked after daily and any issues were dealt with really quickly. The house has lots of guide books to the local attractions, in multiple languages. We couldn't recommend the service more highly
