My husband, our two teenage sons and I spent a week here in late July and just loved it. The villa is superbly appointed with large comfortable bedrooms and an big open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room though to be fair we spent very little time inside the house - who wouldn't want to spend all their time outside?
From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the unparalleled scene beneath us. A panoramic view from Castelmola to Etna, taking in Taormina (with the amphitheatre just visible) and the super yachts in the bay, Naxos below us and the countryside all the way to Catania. Simply breathtaking.
Most days we would venture down the hillside for an excursion but it would never be long before we were pulled back to the villa again. Afternoons saw my husband and sons spend hours boisterously playing in the pool whilst I lounged under the shade of the walnut tree with a book. Evenings we cooked together as a family, homemade pizzas in the outside oven (it does help to have a teenager who has worked in a pizza restaurant though not obligatory) or super locally bought produce on the bbq followed by cards and wine sat around the huge table on the terrace. Bliss.
Thank you Dan & Katherine, we have taken happy memories home that will last a very long time.
House is very nice from architectural point of view, but kitchen area needs deeper and mainly more regular cleaning. Anyway area is very quite and you can realy deeply relax. Giuseppe was very helpfull to poit us to interesting places.
