Fab Pool great property

4 of 5
We had a great week in June at the property in Santa Verena. The pool was a great size and a very rural quite location that suited myself and husband. The views from the villa were gorgeous, swimming each morning with Mount Entna as the back drop. The villa was clean and catered for our requirements however if I could make one criticism it would be that if we had visited as a family and had been eating in most evenings a dishwasher would be useful. I would definitely recommend this villa for a relaxing quite break.

Fantastic trip!

5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in Sicily and definitely want to return! Gianfranco is an excellent host and his apartment and garden are beautifully kept. The steps up from the town saved us from any extra pounds threatened by the the fabulous Sicilian food :) Loved the views from the rooftop terrace and really didn't want to leave. I completely recommend this property!
