Flowers in abundance, a riot of colour, around the house, around the pool, everywhere. Not just the deep warmth of the Sicilian summer sun but most particularly the warmth of genuine Sicilian hospitality. Ireland is the 'land of a 1,000 welcomes' to strangers. As Gaeilge, céad míle fáilte. No-one would feel like a stranger arriving in Villa Vanisia. The welcome from hostess Daniela & her daughter Alessandra makes one feel immediately more like a guest in what was their home. In truth, the welcome has begun long before arrival with enquiries promptly answered & reassurances provided by rental manager Nando, family information shared and even additional requests delivered before we arrived. Table tennis for the children so they can play out of the midday sun; as you wish. Smart TV for Netflix so the teens can catch up on their favourite series after a long school year; of course. Improved air-con in the two annex bedrooms so the two teenage girls can each have their own, independent space from each other and from the family; not a problem; floaters & volley ball for play in the pool; there the next day. Some lovely surprising touches, thoughtful & generous; waking on our first morning to a gentle knock on the kitchen door and a breakfast of freshly baked brioche & granita in exotic flavours; mosquito wristbands for the children; fresh fruit from the gardens; suggestions for lunch & dinner locally and for nearby trips (the raspberry & lime granita topped with cream @ Bam Bar, Taormina was SO good); and a farewell gift of pastries personally delivered... truly this is a vacation home like none other previously experienced through many happy trips to Italy. The Villa is in the footslopes of Mt. Etna so the gardens are bounded and terraced with black volcanic rock. The brilliant blue Aegean sea shimmers far below and Catania hums away to the right. There are so many places to enjoy relaxing in the house or around the patios & pool, that it is frequently tempting not to leave for visits to nearby Taormina, Mt. Etna, Catania, Syracusa, Etnaland. Pool & gardens are impeccably maintained. The rustic kitchen is somewhat basic compared to the elegance of the living rooms & a patio umbrella would add some shading. A good coffee machine though was welcome & well used! Housekeeping issues were mostly addressed promptly, always with grace & kindness. However, the 5 stars go to Daniela & Alessandra for their hospitality & generosity.
