Mount Etna

Villa le Zagare is a large elegant villa, well equipped and with great communal areas but plenty of space to spread out and relax. The views out to the sea and the Aeolian Island across the gardens are breathtaking. The grounds are beautiful and immaculately maintained. Every morning (we were there late August) we could pick figs and grapes for breakfast - the best figs we have ever tasted. The tennis court and pool were well used by our party. Maurizio is a charming and attentive host who looks after you above and beyond what you would usually expect from somebody renting you a villa. Our group was pretty independent, but if you would like him to organise trips he will gladly do so. Maurizio's wife cooked us a fabulous Sicilian meal one evening. From the villa you can walk down to a great local bakery (Pane Nostrum) and an excellent butchers/general store. There is also a very good Pizzeria which also sells bread/patisseries. You can also walk to the local beach (10 minutes or less) where you can buy ice cold granite from a beach shack. There is also a nice beach at Santa Saba a few km east. Places easily reached from here (if you are heading towards Palermo you need to drive the other side of Villafranca and pick up the Rometta motorway interchange) include the Greek theatre at Tindari, Milazzo (and boat trips to the islands) and Taormina. I wish we had gone as far as Palermo - another time maybe. In all a wonderful place to stay in beautiful surroundings and perfect for big groups.

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.
