Great property with an excellent location

5 of 5
We were delighted with our choice. The property is a five minute walk to a small fishing village and an excellent based for exploring the delights of eastern Sicily. We found the property to be well equipped and perfect for a couple. The aspect of the property provides sunshine until the afternoon and is then shaded and this, together with the property being air conditioned, was most welcome relief from the heat. The village provides a large choice of dining options as well as local bakers and grocers and there is a large supermarket around 10 minutes drive north of the village. The owners are charming, hospitable and helpful and added to our holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return.

A charming villa in idyllic gardens

5 of 5
Initially drawn to this villa by its beautiful gardens, we found them even more idyllic than the photos suggest. The pool, with its panoramic views to sparkling blue seas in one direction and towards a gently fuming Mount Etna in the other, is a perfect place to relax with sunny and shady spots throughout the day. Exploring the garden is a joy, with its many hidden corners, lush planting, huge and well-equipped eating and cooking area and majestic old pine trees. The villa, tucked under a canopy of greenery, is lovingly restored, comfortable and equipped with all the modern conveniences one could need for a family holiday. The location is ideal; a few minutes' walk from local shops and restaurants; within comfortable driving distance of shingly and rocky beaches to the east and north, and beautiful sandy beaches to the south; within easy exploring distance of the cities of Catania and Syracuse, hilltop towns such as Noto and, of course, Mount Etna. Our hosts, Giancarlo and Alessandra, were delightful; thoughtful in providing a wealth of useful information in advance of our holiday, very kind and accommodating when our in-bound flight was delayed, and a pleasure to meet. It is clear that this is a much-loved family holiday home. We are so fortunate to have had the chance to spend our holiday here and would recommend it without hesitation.
