Fans would be a good addition because the air con wasn't very effective but this didn't spoil the holiday. Lovely peaceful setting with great view of Etna but a car required for easy access. Plenty of good local restaurants and supermarkets. Driving very easy because the roads were almost deserted. The manager and his wife were excellent and couldn't have been more helpful. Etna excursion, Alcantara gorge, Taormina and Savoca well worth doing. Great for a quiet, relaxing holiday. Would definitely return. Villa would also benefit from a microwave, kettle and toaster but otherwise well enough equipped for me, my wife and daughter.

In traditional Sicilian style, yet also tastefully renovated, the house has a unique, peaceful atmosphere which immediately helps you to unwind. Even on the hottest day, the thick stone walls and tiled floors offer a cool retreat and a good sleep at night. 'Casa Lavica' is well maintained and clean. We felt it was well-equipped for our needs and online description of the facilities was accurate. The owner Giuseppe is very welcoming indeed, respectful, approachable and willing to support guests with any queries. We much appreciated being able to walk on the beautiful land around the property and also enjoyed use of the bbq area. Some of our favourite days out included : exploring the mountainous areas around Mount Etna, visiting Castiglione and many other picturesque villages and towns, the coast around Taormina, going to Alcantara gorge and swimming in the river. We ate out a couple of times, but also enjoyed the taste (and reasonable price!) of local foods and Etna wines. Giuseppe treated us to lovely bread, his own honey, apricot jam, lemons, plums. We would certainly consider returning to Casa Lavica in future and would recommend to family and friends, especially to those who share our interest in Nature and being outdoors. All in all, we had a most enjoyable, memorable holiday.

We had directions from the owner and also a sat nav but still got lost.We wonder if the co-ordinates are right because once we found it, the journey back to the airport was actually very straightforward. Anyway, the house manager was very helpful and showed us the way from the local town. This property has everything you could possibly want apart from air conditioning. If it had AC or even ceiling fans then I would give it 5 stars. The photos do not do it justice - the place is so beautiful. The local pool is shared with a few other properties and just a short walk down the hill. It is probably the nicest private pool we have ever used. There are around 30 steps up to the property so not for those with mobility issues or small children in pushchairs. The property is well equipped but no oven in the kitchen, just a hob. All in all, we loved it and it was the perfect break for our extended family. Thank you.
