Very nice house with all you need. Fantastic swimmingpool, stunning views, nice sorroundings and a very good service from Marco and his uncle Giuseppe. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice, clean and calm place to stay for the vacation.
Our first summer holiday outside France for four years proved to be the luckiest of finds for the perfect relaxing tonic for us!
An easy two and a half motorway drive from Palermo we found the Villa without any problem and were greeted by the owners Mike and Maria who showed us round a clean and well presented apartment with the pool just fifteen feet from the front door! With fantastic views of the surrounding villages, Basilica perched up on the hills, Aeolian Islands in the distance and the beautiful grounds filled with fruit trees and flowers, we really felt like we were on holiday!
There is lots to do both locally and within a short drive, Mount Etna and Taormina is a must, and if you are up for a bit of driving there are impressive Roman and Greek ruins and architecture, and beautiful beaches to be found. We went as far as to Siracusa and was not disappointed once we got there.
Our overriding experience of Sicily and left us with a memory of the importance of family and Mike and Maria really make us feel part if theirs!
One thing...... the "guard dog" Rocky........ the soppiest, loveliest mutt, an absolute image of Disney's Pluto, we would open the gates and he would be off bounding down the road!! Don't worry Mike or Maria would say, he'll come back soon....... and so shall we!
Thanks for a lovely Stay
