We spent two weeks in a villa and enjoyed visiting NorthEast Sicily as well as Aeolian Islands. The place is quiet and yet just 5-10 min away (by car) from the nearby town and motorway. We tried local olive oil and it was veeeery good. That was the last week of September plus first week of October sso evenings and nights were pleasantly cool.
The picture of the pool and amazing views were what attracted us to this villa on the Northern coast. The position was ideal for visiting Messina, Cefalu and Palermo. Guiseppe and his daughter Anna were extremely helpful both before and during our stay in ensuring that we were informed of the location, facilities and local.
The swimming pool and its position was outstanding with a great seating area for soaking up the sun and relaxing. We had a proper wood burning pizza oven available for our use which was a fab experience.
The villa itself was extremely spacious, commanding a fantastic view across the coast, and providing 3 excellent bedrooms.
However many of the internal fitments (plus some of the pool chairs) were extremely dated and should have been replaced as they were 'not fit for purpose' and breakage would be charged for. The internal lounging chairs were uncomfortable and the shower needed careful attention as it drained very slowly and could flood the area. Air conditioning was available to cool the inside of the villa.
If the above had not been a concern to us during our stay then we would have easily given the review 5 stars or higher, due to how spectacular it was.
