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.

The pool area is great and we spent loads of time there. The house is spacious and delightful. Decorated tastefully in a shabby chic way. The bathrooms work but are functional rather than modern and having an evening barbecue on the spacious terrace with Mt Etna as backdrop is stunning. We used the cooking service twice and had good meals. I would definitely recommend this property. We were only 6 adults, if you were 10 it would be fine but the kitchen might be a bit busy and there would be some bathroom sharing but the sitting room and dining area and terrace are huge. As is the pool area. We had a marvelous time
