Our best family holiday ever

5 of 5
From the moment we arrived at the villa we knew we had chosen the right holiday. We loved how this beautiful villa was tucked away in such a peaceful and tranquil setting. As the villa is so clean, tidy and well equipped we didn't have to worry about anything. We spent most of the holiday having the best fun outside in the pool and chilling around the fabulous pool area, we even managed to tear our eldest daughter away from the wifi to join in the fun and the Sicilian weather did not disappoint. The kids loved it when we had a pizza night and they could make their own pizzas and cook them in the pizza oven outside (obviously dad won that competition). It was really hard to tear ourselves away from the stunning villa but we did make a few trips in to Chiramonte and the marina in Ragusa. We were so sad to leave the villa at the end of our holiday. It was definitely the best family holiday we have ever had and we will be most certainly be coming back. We firstly would like to say thank you to Giuseppe who was so helpful and tended to the beautiful gardens and of course Ian and Jenny, for the help you gave us even before the holiday began, then when we arrived checking in on us and making sure everything was just perfect for us and finally for letting us stay at your beautiful, stunning and well loved and looked after home. Love Emma, Paul, Holly and Frances Markham

Una experiencia inolvidable¡¡¡

5 of 5
Hemos pasado un grupo de amigos unos dias en esta casa situada en una magnifica zona para visitar Sicilia, el ambiente es de los que se recuerda toda la vida.Las imagenes reflejan fielmente el encanto de la casa, situada en una finca que nos permitia pasear al atardecer despues de una visita a una zona próxima. La casa dispone de todos los utensilios para cocinar, todo muy limpio, con una parte trasera que permite descansar y relajarte en un ambiente unico. La propietaria, Valentina, encantadora , nos recibio con un vino siciliano y nos ofrecio su apoyo para lo que necesitasemos. En definitiva, una estancia en sicilia y en una casa, que siempre permanecera en nuestro recuerdo.
