As you can see from the photographs the house has been carefully designed by the couple who live next door. The kitchen, house and bathroom already has everything you would want for a stay and is set up very well for self catering, we ate in every night we were there and had breakfast sat outside every morning which was lovely. The hosts are warm and friendly, there when you need them but also allowing you to get on with your holiday. Thank you Luigi and Perla for being such lovely hosts. The house is located in a semi rural location (you would need a car) but is very well located for exploring Etna and the coast. I really could not recommend this place more!

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    The house is light and breezy, facing the gorgeous Mediterranean with all its sparkle and blue. Capo Zefferano looms to the East (right, facing the sea) and the hills behind Palermo to the West. The house feels secluded even though there are neighbors on both sides. The patios are wonderful and one can always find shade as the sun moves around, behind, the house over the course of the day. The kitchen is more than functional and has the "right" pots for vacation cooking with a family. The beds are comfortable (we slept four in three rooms) and the living space is big enough to be able to find a private nook for reading or thinking. (TV and WiFi are good.) The gulls and doves "debate, argue, and comment" amusingly, through the day. The mosquitos are a fact of life but as long as you prepare for them and keep the screen doors closed, all is well. The house is quiet, surrounded by lovely gardens tended to by Vincenzo and nestled up snug against its cliff; even the busy weekend traffic on single-laned Via Perez is not noticeable. Porticello is close by for shopping and there are numerous green markets there. Day excursions to Cefalú or Trapani or Agrigento are easily done. For a day trip to Palermo, one can take the short (15 minute) train trip from Bagheria but one needs a car to reach the station. In fact, a car is pretty much necessary for this property, although my son and I did walk to Porticello for groceries one day. It's about 8 kilometres round trip and uphill much of the way back. (Just a note, a small car with an excellent turning radius is preferable for negotiating the steep driveway and small turn around at the bottom.) The swimming is not for little children but is otherwise spectacular. Steep steps lead down to the rocky base of the cliff. On carefully sliding over barnacled rocks decorated with mossy seaweed into the sea, one is immediately in deep water with swell and, depending on the wind and tide, some waves sloshing into the rocky cove. Once past those waves the swimming is delightful There is occasionally a tow. For swimming with small children there are two beaches off the road to Porticello. There are plenty of places to eat in beautiful Porticello. Antica Pizzeria La Punta is worth it just for the view, but the food is excellent as well. The property was very clean when we arrived and Antonio and Debbie are terrific hosts. We would enthusiastically recommend this property to others and also to our family.

Our first impressions were wow! Villa and grounds stunning, amazing Mount Etna Views, friendliness of Villa staff, this holiday had it all, Roberto even brought us fresh oranges from his home, plus home made red wine (delicious I must say Roberts), we also had our own swimming pool, what more could we want. The location of the shops was just 5 minutes walk away, an array of fruit and vegetable shops (my daughter is vegetarian so we found this an added bonus), cafes, butchers, bakers (with delicious patisserie). We travelled up and down the coast in our hired cars, our favourite location being Taormina with its array of wonderful shops and history. We didn't visit any breaches whilst we were there but we past many on our jaunts along the coast and they looked wonderful. One last thought, please do not ask me to comment on Italian drivers!!! Beware if you go to Messina for the day in a rental car.
