The property is ideally situated and the layout was ideal for our family, with small children.

4 of 5
The owners were very hospital and kept the pool well cleaned each day and gave useful local advice. We enjoyed our two weeks at Villa Theresa very much. However, WIFI connection was intermittent and kitchen and kitchen facilities were limited for the number of occupants.

Perfect for the 2 of us, lovely to be staying so close to the sea.

Lovely apartment, had everything we needed. Pozzillo was a very pleasant village with small beach and harbour, seemed to have few foreign visitors. Enjoyed snorkelling outside the apartment. Note that others also enjoy it too - in July we were certainly not alone especially on a Sunday but it was never a problem! Great location for trips to Taormina, Etna, Syracuse. We did some evening restaurant reservations as recommended tho I think they weren't essential mid week nor if happy to sit 2nd row if it has a view / terrace. Thanks Francesco for very enjoyable first visit to Sicily.
