La maison est parfaitement adaptée pour une famille de 5 personnes telle que la nôtre. Rien à redire, tout correspondant amplement à nos attentes. La région n'accueille pas un tourisme de masse, les petits commerçants locaux sont charmants et bienveillants. Bref nous avons adorés nos vacances partagées entre le repos, la découverte de la région, les ballades, la mer et les îles. Nous recommandons vivement cette maison et cette région encore préservée.

The house is spacious and well-equipped and the terraces are simply amazing. The views are wonderful and there are so many places to sit and look at the sea. The sea itself was often a bit rough making it quite challenging to have a swim off the rocks below the house, but it was very easy to walk into Scilla and go to the beach there, which was friendly and laid back and not especially crowded even though it was August. We went to Reggio one day to see the Riace bronzes, which are wonderful, and we had a very nice meal there; but for the most part we were happy to stay local and enjoy the peace and beauty of the place. When we arrived the owner had made us a yummy cake and there was a bottle of prosecco and some supplies in the kitchen which were very much appreciated - especially the huge platter of fruit, as well as lemons, onions etc. The only slight downside is the fact that there is no wifi at the house, which is a bit inconvenient. But we would definitely recommend this property and would happily go back.

The pictures are accurate, the Villa is on a hill overlooking the Aeolian islands. We got to enjoy stunning sunsets every night. It is well equipped and very clean. It's a calm 30 mins walk to Tindari's church and the amazing Milazzo Venus Pool. Also in Milazzo there is a port with the boat connections to go to the Aeolian islands. A great day out! The owners were delightful and helpful with directions and information regarding things to do and place to go. We really enjoyed our Holiday and will definitely book again!
