At ground floor there are the salon, with a big a traditional fireplace, a private chapel, a veranda and a winter garden, two bathrooms and a professional kitchen.

Very luxurious, spacious and clean.

  • 5 of 5

we spent a week in luxury, the villa itself is huge with very well looked after gardens surrounding it.

A short walk to the pool through a huge orangery is very pleasant. The pool was clean and a relief from the heat, with beautiful plants and flowers palm trees surrounding it.

The gardener was very helpful, spoke pretty good English too.

The bedrooms were well maintained and have air conditioning, this was essential for sleeping. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of seating. I would go back for sure and recommend this place easily.

A beautiful stay in Sicily

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at this beautiful and charming place only a half an hour drive from the airport of Catania.

The Villa and the fantastic garden were very much impressive. We have not seen such an extraordinary property before. The house was very clean and located in an amazing surrounding. The kitchen was very big and good furnitured. As we love to cook by ourselfes, this was a real plus.

The garden including a very nice swimming pool was professionally maintained with a lot of love for details.

We were even provided with a contact person offering a 24 hour help in case of any questions or needs. This as well made us feel very welcome and in really good hands. Thank you Nunzio!!

Shopping possibilities are within a couple of minutes drive.

For sure if possible we would like to come back to this marvellous place :-)

"Romantica e Chic"

  • 5 of 5

Premesso di essere capitata quasi per caso e per la prima volta in questa splendida location, dovendo lavorare in zona tra Catania e Messina. Il posto è incantevole e l'ambientazione di classe.

Un'oasi di pace e tranquillità

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo avuto la fortuna di essere i primi ospiti di questa Villa, essendo questo il primo anno di attività. La villa è inserita in un bellissimo parco di più di due ettari, con una vegetazione rigogliosissima e curato quotidianamente dalla proprietaria e da un giardiniere. E' un'oasi verde con un microclima particolare (a luglio la sera faceva addirittura fresco!).

Le stanze sono molto belle e praticamente nuove, non essendo mai state abitate (la villa padronale è infatti a fianco di quella che si affitta).

Speriamo di poterci ritornare presto!
