A beautiful villa with the most amazing views and great swimmming pool

5 of 5
We were a group of family and friends, 7 in total with 4 of the group age 15-19, staying for a week in July. There was plenty of room for us all and the villa was well equipped for what we needed. There are shops and supermarkets quite nearby, but we ate out a lot as well. We booked the cooking service, available if you book with the owner in advance, which was amazing and very tasty (lots of it!). The owner was very helpful through the booking process and during our stay; thank you Valeria (and your mother). The pool is big and very clean with lots of space around it. The terrace was where we ate in the evening, with the most fantastic views of Mt Etna.

Delightful holiday stay

5 of 5
Our group of twenty adults spent a wonderful two weeks at Le Case del Principe. We rented cars at the airport in Catania and used the villa as a base for exploring Etna and the vicinity. The driving was challenging at times, with twisting roads to hill towns, but let us see many off the beaten path spots. The property was even more lovely than pictured, with quiet corners for reading, and shady gathering spots for large group dinners. We rented the entire estate so there was privacy and comfort for all. There was also a bocce court which provided opportunity for lively evening competitions. The grounds were beautifully maintained with lemon trees and colorful flowers surrounding the pool areas. Monica and the other staff members were responsive to all our needs, and the meals prepared for us by Maria and Antoinetta featured fresh local ingredients in traditional Sicilian recipes. Outstanding! We appreciated Monica's help in arranging day trips to Agrigento and Piazza Armerina, a fabulous wine tasting at Gambino Vini, and a night out for pizza at Flora. We also enjoyed waking into town for cappuccino and croissants in the mornings. Other day trips included exploring Mt. Etna , Alcantra Gorges, Taormina, Enna, Castiglione , Savoca, and other picturesque spots. Those who love ceramics were particularly satisfied by the shops in Caltagirone. A highlight for us all was a concert by the tenors "IL Volo" in the spectacular setting of the ancient Greek theater in Taormina with Mt. Etna as a backdrop. I would definitely recommend the property to others. We were sad to say farewell to Monica who who became like a family member to our group.
