Good property for a larger group

4 of 5
The property was well prepared for us on arrival and the two people that met us were very helpful. They left us a bottle of wine and even recommended somewhere to go out for New Years Eve. We were two families - 4 adults, 5 children - so the size of the villa was just about right. Everyone had a bed, and the smallest was on a fold out sofa bed. Major plus points were the pool and the basement level games room with a pool table and pinball machine. The kitchen was also large, but we struggled to get 9 people around the table. It was also a little under equipped if you wanted to cook at home, but a relatively minor point. Spectacular views of Etna every morning were certainly uplifting for the soul, and we were lucky with the weather for the time of year (28 Dec to 4 Jan) with highs of 17 deg and lots of dry weather and sun. The only downsides for the adults were that the beds were in need of an upgrade - new mattresses would sort this easily. Overall, loved the place and the location and can recommend it with a clear conscience.

Wonderful

5 of 5
Nicely situated in the Alcantara Valley about 10-15 minutes from the coast. It's up a narrow 500m dirt road which might be useful to know when deciding what type of car to hire but it does means that it's quiet, peaceful and private. The closest restaurant is the Ristorante Paradise which is at the start of the track and so very close by. The food is great but the quantities are huge and defeated us so make sure you have a good appetite before you go. The villa was larger than we expected and very well equipped. Plenty of crockery, cups, and glasses and a dishwasher to take the chore out of cleaning up. The villa was very clean and well looked after. Emails from the owner were friendly and helpful and the keyholder, Giueseppe, was very helpful in recommending places to go and things to do when we arrived.

Top villa. Highly recommended for family groups

5 of 5
We (6 adults and 5 kids 0-13 years) have several times rented villa through Homaway.com, and never been disappointed. But this villa is truly on top of what we have experienced so far. Idylically located in lemon plantation, Mt. Etna towering to the west and the Mediterranen sea to the east. The unspoilt village Riposto within easy reach by foot with several restaurants and local shops. Within short driving distances you even reach some of the most "necessary" attractions like Mt. Etna with the entire surrounding National Park, the incredible village of Taormina and not least the Aeolian Islands Vulcano, Stromboli etc. We were fortunate and had a whole week with sunshine and good temperatures, so we virtually lived in the pool and on the terrace, using the outdoor kitchen facilities. The pool is huge and great for the kids, and is safely fenced to prevent accidents. On top of all this we had excellent help and assistance from our kind hosts, Mr. and Mrs Foti, they did all they could for us to get the most out of our stay in Sicily. Definitely a place where we will recommend and where we would like to return!
