The villa was spotless, well equipped and the view from the terrace and pool was out of this world! We had amazing weather and were very glad of the air conditioning in the bedrooms! We would certainly recommend this villa for people wanting to explore the Ionian coast, Mount Etna etc but who want to be away from the busy coastal resorts. We would strongly advise people to do their shopping before going up to the villa or if, like us, their flight arrives late, to take advantage of the essentials welcome pack service (don't forget to book this at least two weeks before you arrive) as it is a bit of a trek up a pretty rough, steep road/track to get to the villa from the nearest town. The owners, Dan and Katharine were very helpful and informative. All in all, a great holiday!

The location is v convenient for isola bella and Taormina and direct access to the sea is perfect for early morning & evening dips. The views from the balcony are stunning. A little odd that the rest of the building appears empty but that made it v quiet and peaceful for our family.
