Lovely house and very friendly owners

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a total of 6 days here and we had a very good time. Pool and gardens are excellent and there are many leasure activities, like pool, table tennis etc. View of Etna is also excellent. The owner is very friendly and very helpful, especially with restaurant and activity suggestions. WiFi is a little unstable though, but the owners are quick to find solutions.

Our only complaint, is not the house or the owners, it is the surrounding area. There are wild dogs all over Catania, and every neighbor has a dog, and they bark constantly, from early morning to sundown. If you want to go running or biking, forget it. There are wild dogs on all nearby athletics tracks, and biking or running on the roads is suicide, the Italians drive like madmen, and I am not exaggerating.

That being said, the weather is very nice, we only had rain once. Etna is only 30 mins away. And there are tonnes of restaurants nearby, both for gluten free and vegetarian diets.

But all that considered, we can very strongly recommend the house!

Bellissimo, curatissimo, spazioso e ben ubicato. Accoglienza gentilissima e disponibilissima.

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo prenotato Villa Francesca per due notti e tre giorni. Già dai primi contatti (col Sig. Salvo prima e con Marco dopo) ci siamo sentiti a nostro agio. Disponibili, gentili e cordialissimi. Eravamo in 11, quindi il massimo degli ospiti consentito, ma ciònonostante siamo stati molto comodi, sia per le attività diurne che per la notte. Complice la vastità degli ambienti, siano essi le zone gioco, piscina, solarium, grill e forno, o gli ambienti interni, salotto, veranda d'inverno, zona notte, i 3 bagni e doccia esterna. Tutto molto curato, elegante, assolutamente funzionante e fruibile e ambienti di ottimo gusto. Siamo stati accolti con un aperitivo di benvenuto, pasticcini e la cordialità a cui ci avevan già abituati. Abbiamo utilizzato il forno a legna, il grill, i vari giochi (biliardo, ping pogn, calciobalilla) e, ovviamente, la piscina. La villa offre un ambiente perfetto sia per il relax che per il divertimento. Sia esternamente che internamente. Se cercate un buon posto, dotato di piscina, spazioso e adeguato ad ogni esigenza, funzionale e funzionante in ogni suo aspetto, elegante, pulito, spazioso, i cui padroni di casa cordiali, disponibili e discreti al contempo (essendo la villa ad uso esclusivo)... allora avete trovato il posto giusto. Ne vale davvero la pena, sia che siete in due e sia che siete in tanti.

Anzi approfitto per rinnovare i miei ringraziamenti a Salvo e Marco per tutto e invito chiunque sia interessato a far la loro conoscenza.

Semplicemente incantevole

  • 5 of 5

Stupenda esperienza a Villa Francesca. Villa con piscina in una cornice di verde nonostante la stagione invernale. Casa, piscina e ambiente esterno all' altezza delle nostre aspettative e perfettamente corrispondenti alle foto. Da non sottovalutare la sala giochi nn ci si annoia mai tra una carambola una partita a calcetto o a ping pong. E' un ambiente perfetto per rilassarsi e divertirsi allo stesso tempo e vicina a luoghi turistici interessanti come l'etna, Catania o comunque a pochi minuti dalle autostrade che portano alle mete turistiche piu gettonate. Marco e Salvo ci hanno fatto sentire i ben venuti, sempre molto gentili e disponibili per qualsiasi nostra richiesta o consiglio. Altamente raccomandata. Spero di tornarci in Estate per la piscina soprattutto per fare divertire i bambini.
