We had a wonderful stay in this dramatic comfortable compound. Our host met us at the closest highway exit (we don't speak Italian well enough to take directions and anyway, what use are directions on Italian roads?) and showed us everything we needed to know about the small villa where we were staying. We had brought foodstuffs from the Ortigia market and she made sure we were comfortable with the wood grill. The whole property was ours and the quiet pool was a great place to recover from travel. They went out of their way to make sure we knew the best way to our appointments and guided us when they felt it was necessary. They were very embarassed that gas for the stove and heater ran out at the same time as water but we didn't feel in the least abandoned. Aside from that the bathroom worked just fine. The bed was comfy, the cooking implements were fine. Poised over the bay and across from Etna the outdoor dining was incredible! What a pity we didn't have a few more days!
We stayed for 10 days - and this property was perfect. It is a 20 minute drive from sea level up a dramatic single track road. Amazing views from the villa of the surrounding countryside, Etna but also the bay, the terraced hills, stretching for miles. Very quiet except for many birds. The facilities were excellent and felt new. There are two separate, traditional 'villas' with use of the pool (just right). We had the smaller one. Sweet cottage, air-con excellent, shower strong, bed large and comfortable, kitchen facilities simple but effective, wifi was 95% reliable. Patio, where we had most of our meals!, sheltered by Eucalyptus and lemon trees. Hosts extremely supportive but not intrusive (guided us on arrival from sea-level to villa, which was a great help). Great walks (hosts again advised - with the help of Google translate). We engaged with the other (English) family in the neighbouring villa, but had our own privacy when we wanted it. Perfect place for a rest, with occasional outings to Castelmola (on foot over the hills, 90 minute strong up and down walk) or Taormina by car, or Mazzarò for good restaurants. All in all, we are very happy to return. Above all, the silence, the views, the comfortable villa, the genial hosts (who occasionally turned up with presents of their own wine or vegetables) prompt return.
We stayed in the larger of two villas for 2 weeks , the layout of the property and surrounding areas was perfect .The pool was big enough and long enough to swim and stay there for the day . There are various areas to eat at different ends of the property and they all had gorgeous views , the top area was particularly nice as this had a full view of Mount Etna .The owners were friendly and exceedingly welcoming . Both of the two bedrooms were spacious and had an adjoining ensuite .The villa is perfect for walking with the town of Castelmola just an hours walk away . We would thoughly recommended it as a authentic Sicilian villa experience .
We stayed in a the larger of the villas for 4 nights and it was everything we could hope for and more. The grounds/garden are lovely with establish fruit trees and many sitting areas and bits to explore. The pool was literally welcoming after a hot day site-seeing. The villa is very spacious for 3 persons, full of character and little surprises, the photographs do not do it justice. You get a great view of Mt Etna and the sea. You can occasionally hear the volcano gently booming away. The owners are welcoming and helpful, and we got treated to some vegetables freshly plucked from the ground. It is a good location for visiting Taormina, Syracuse, Etna and other sites. If you want to relax and get away from it all, then I thoroughly recommend staying here. If you do need access to the modern world, the Wi fi signal is good. Wish we stayed for a little longer, next time we are in the area we will book without hesitation.
Wir waren eine Woche zu dritt (Kleinkind) in dem kleineren Haus. Das Haus ist sehr schön und im sizilianischen Stil eingerichtet, wie auch die komplette Anlage. Toller Ausblick auf den Ätna und die Umgebung. Sehr großzügiger und sauberer Pool mit Sprungbrett. Herzlicher Empfang von den Gastgebern mit frischem Obst. Sehr gastfreundlich, wir wurden rundum gut umsorgt, sogar mit Lebensmittel als wir sehr schlechtes Wetter hatten und die Unterkunft nicht verlassen konnten. Traumhafte Unterkunft zum entspannen.
The villa is surrounded by green hills of Taormina on the tip of Castelmola where you can enjoy the beautiful view of Mount Etna and eastern Sicily. Its location allows you to reach in twenty minutes the beautiful Taormina that is about five miles and the beaches of Giardini Naxos and the famous beach of Isola Bella.
