This is such a lovely place to stay on holiday - the surroundings are beautiful and it is peaceful and relaxing. You can see Etna really clearly one way and the sea in the opposite direction, and the grounds of the accommodation are bursting with grapevines, olive and lemon trees, etc. Gabriella and her family are fantastic and made us so welcome. Her son Ricardo is great to help with any language issues. They were very accommodating, always there to help with anything, but never intrusive. Our plane was delayed on arrival and Gabriella's husband came out to look for us, as we were arriving in the dark, even though it was past midnight. They did a fantastic pizza night for everyone staying there one night, making about 15 different pizzas and cooking them in their own outdoor pizza oven, and complimenting these with their own homegrown and home produced wine - all totally delicious. It was a great way to meet the other guests and a really nice, enjoyable night. The accommodation was very clean - the only thing I would caution is to check what you have booked carefully - we didn't and so had booked a one-room (plus bathroom) 'apartment' for 4 of us, which would have been fine if we had had small children, but our girls are 18 and 21, and a separate bedroom would have been better for us - but that was our problem for not checking what we had booked properly. We loved Sicily and would definitely visit again, and we would highly recommend Gabriella and her lovely holiday homes.
I was in the house for three weeks (July/August) . Everything is neatly cared for and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The house stands in a small community of apartments and other houses. That makes it extra cozy. Pozzillo is a small village with nice people. When I arrived, I fell in the middle of the start of a two week program of festivities (Saint Margareth) with spectacular fireworks and and every night we had something to do at the cozy harbor. From the house you walk straight to the sea with its own place to lie, sunbath, swim and snorkel between the fishes. The house itself is well equipped. Even with the heat outside, it stays cool inside. In the outdoor space you will find shade and privacy.Do not expect special walking opportunities from the house. Well, in my case it was too hot for that anyway. By car you are within an hour in cities like Catania, Syracuse and Taormina. And of course on the Etna! The beautiful volcano can not be missed in Pozzillo. Sometimes in the clouds, sometimes with a setting sun behind it, but always present! All together I had an excellent holiday.
