We enjoyed the fantastic views from the pool towards Etna during the day time. The pool is lit so we had the added bonus of being able to swim at night. The road up to the villa is narrow but ok after the first few times of driving it. Having said that we never plucked up courage to try it after dark. Dan and Katherine were fantastic - their attention to detail is amazing. thankyou

It is a charming historic country property, with all the quirks that entails, it's not the place if you are looking for 21st century contemporary luxury. We loved it, and would highly recommend it. The house was clean and tidy, the grounds well maintained.. There was plenty of hot water, and the swimming pool was beautiful. It's about a 10/20 minute drive from busy Taormina, so perfect for visiting, but lovely to come back to the peaceful oasis of the villa.

We really liked that we could walk down to the town easily and quickly using the steps and return the same way (not quite so easy but it only took about 10 minutes and we soon recovered!) The apartment is really well equipped, full of character, the garden is very attractive and the use of the upstairs terrace, with even better views, is a bonus. The owner, Gianfranco, is very helpful and friendly.
