Found the villa on the internet so always a concern but the villa and owner exceeded all of our expectations. George and his wife were amazing hosts. He was there to greet us and guide us in on the phone (even though it was late at night) and we had a fantastic, Sicilian lasagne prepared in the oven for us and some essentials, including a bottle of wine. He left us to it, but was always at the end of the phone for restaurant recommendations or bookings and the children loved him due to his 3 rules for children whilst they are there: "Fun, fun, fun!". And fun they had. Heated pool, full size tennis court, table football, table tennis, rope swings, zip wire, their own playground with ride on toys and a mini farm/zoo with goats and chickens and a donkey. The highlight was going to collect eggs with George. The villa had everything you needed. So spacious and added bonuses of great wifi, lots of english films, netflix and even toys for the baby. The pool was absolutely stunning. Spotlessly clean. A bit cool for me in October as you'd expect but the kids didn't seem to mind at all. Plenty of comfy, modern loungers around it to relax on and admire the views. Heaven! Peace and quiet, secluded with vast views yet so close to the gorgeous, historical centre of Modica, where George can tell you all the best places to go. Plenty of places to visit nearby too. A truly amazing, huge, family holiday villa for young and old. Will definitely return!

                                                                                                      4 of 5

Great pool, quiet location, very good local restaurant within walking distance. Plenty of space with the two bathrooms. We would have liked more comfortable chairs - there were not enough even for 4 people to relax in. Details like lumpy pillows could be improved. The dishwasher didn't work properly at all. And, this is mostly a matter of British taste - we didn't appreciate dead and stuffed birds on the walls. The greatest problem was to have only one key to the house and garden gate. If one person went out with the key ( to let themselves out of the garden gate) the remaining people were trapped with no way out in an emergency, eg needing an ambulance. We asked for a second key and were told we couldn't have one.
