Perfect location up on the hill with views to the Aeolian Islands. Plenty of outdoor space for dining and sun bathing. The house was spotlessly clean with everything that you could need. We loved it there in San Giorgio, with a perfect local bakery, baking the very best bread that we have ever eaten. And we've been around quite a bit. We loved the upstairs balcony off the bedroom. The house has a personal feel with various nik-naks of the owners. They couldn't have been more friendly, but don't get me wrong, they left us to enjoy our holiday in peace and privacy. Great location for exploring the Nebrodi Regional Park and all the little villages and beaches. Definitely recommend.
