A great view and a comfortable villa

  • 3 of 5

The view is the best thing about this villa, which is comfortable and well-equipped and only a short (but steep) walk to the sea. The only negatives are the two indoor showers, which flooded the bathrooms whenever we used them to the point that we gave up and used the outside one. The pool is a five-minute walk away and is clean and wasn't crowded, but it does have limited opening hours so it wasn't ideal. The people who run the pool also seemed reluctant to let us use it until the villa owner, Pietro, had a word with a them. Despite that, the villa is good value, Pietro and his staff are very helpful and friendly, and the food and products at his farm/hotel are excellent. The villa is inside a large gated holiday community with just one small shop and a pub/pizzeria, which does excellent pizzas. There are regular visits by vans selling icecream, bread and pastries and fruit and vegetables. The villa is well-placed for exploring Etna, Catania and Siracusa but a car is essential. The villa's steep drive makes accessibility difficult for anyone using a wheelchair.

Owner's Response: Der Hausbesitzer freut sich sehr, daß dem Gast das Haus und die Umgebung sehr gefallen haben, so wie allen anderen Gästen davor auch. Anzumerken wäre, daß die Bäder bei normal umsichtiger Nutzung der Dusche bisher nie unter Wasser standen, dies wird jedoch umgehend überprüft. Alle gemeinschaftlich genutzten Pools (wahrscheinlich nicht nur) in Italien haben eine Nutzungsordnung mit entsprechenden Nutzungszeiten, was natürlich auch auf diesen Pool zutrifft.

Vue magnifique sur Etna et la baie de Catane

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé 3 agréables semaines à la Villa en août 2015. La villa est très confortable avec une grande terrasse qui surplombe la mer. L'endroit est très calme sauf vers minuit certains soirs, où il peut y avoir de la musique en provenance des plages d'en face pendant 2 heures.

Les pièces sont de bonnes tailles et la climatisation dans les chambres est appréciable.

Une supérette dans la résidence permet d'avoir les éléments de première nécessité sur place.

La piscine, grande et chauffée, se trouve à 200 m donc très proche de la villa.

La villa est bien située pour visiter tout le Sud Est de l'île.

Les plages de proximité sont rocheuses. La première plage de sable intéressante se trouve à 1/4 h en voiture.

Une voiture est indispensable et les visites nécessitent souvent entre 1/2 h et 2 h de route.

Nous recommandons cette adresse.
