Set in gorgeous gardens, with hammocks, swings, olive and lemon trees, the villa is steeped in history. We all loved all the historical photos of the place. The pool was so refreshing and the pool area offered a good selection of shade and sun. The living area is set on the first floor, with the tower rooms. The rooms were cool and airy and the beds were comfy. There is a full kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine and a HUGE oven/hob. We spent a lot of time on the terrace, looking out over the gardens, but there is also another huge roof terrace on the second floor which had great views out over Mount Etna. Liliana is a great lady :) we were always made to feel welcome, and upon arrival there were loads of goodies in the fridge together with a yummy chocolate cake. She loved having the babies around, and they loved having the run of the place! Liliana was very helpful at getting our days out booked, and has so many great stories from her time in this historical place. All in all, it was a great week away, made better by the accommodation. The one v. small negative (for me) was that Stazzo is quite quiet, with the restaurants not really open at lunch. We were making our own most days, but would have nice to have this as an option. However, Blue Bar on the harbour does a great selection of gelato and cannolis :) Thumbs up!

We wanted somewhere accessible to the places we wanted to visit – Etna, Ragusa, Modica, Noto, Syracuse, Taormina, Catania etc - but set away from the tourist areas, so we could experience some of the real Sicily. Viagrande is one of a series of villages/towns all close-by in this area, all good to explore and each with its own character. Viagrande has excellent shops, cafes and restaurants – we were regulars at Cafe Urna and loved it, excellent cakes and ice-creams. La Cassette is down a pretty Cyprus lined street a few minutes walk from the middle of town . The proprietor, Claudia, lives in a bungalow in the large grounds and her brother and mother also each have a bungalow each there. The apartment/barn is attached to one of these. Its decorated in Sicilian style but with a very modern bathroom. It was clean and comfortable and has its own area of the garden. The pool is large and in a beautiful landscaped area of the extensive grounds. Claudia and her family where wonderfully friendly, helpful and welcoming and their dog, Balou and their two cats were lovely, it felt a real home from home and a little paradise – like living in a part orchard of orange and lemon trees , part exotic woodland, with a lovely pool and a view up to Etna. Claudia's brother keeps exotic birds and this adds to the feeling of being in an exotic location. We found the local people a little cautious at first but then, after the first meeting, warm, welcoming and keen to talk. Unless you want a totally secluded holiday (this would be a great place to have that) you really need a car and we would recommend a sat nav because the complicated road system has built up over many years and there are lots of ways of getting lost!. Nearby, we enjoyed the towns of Trecastagni, Aci Sant' Antonio and Pedara, on the coast we also liked Aci Trezza, Aci Castello and also enjoyed a visit to Acireale.
