About Susanne Reinert
For many years, my husband and I have been uge fans of Italy and together with our daughters we lived in Florence for a few years. When we first came to Sicily, it was love at first sight and in the same year we bought the Casa Mario and extensively renovated it in the following years. We try to spend as much time as possible in Sicily and so far all our friends and also our family members are enthusiastic about our house.
Susanne Reinert purchased this House in 2003
Why Susanne Reinert chose Caltavuturo
We fell in love with this house, because it is far away from tourism but still in a picturesque landscape. The small town Caltavuturo has the best ice cream parlor in the world and all the inhabitants are friendly and nice. You are in half an hour by the sea or in 45 minutes by car in the beautiful port city of Cefalu. To go to Palermo you need about 1 hour by car, to Catania about 1.5 hours. If you are looking for peace and quiet from the stressful everyday life, you will find it in our house.
What makes this House unique
Sometimes after a stressful working day, I try to think about sitting on my terrace in Caltavuturo and immediately I feel relaxed. Here you can relax and enjoy the beauty of the landscape.The light and colors are fantastic here and the summer evenings are pleasant and not as hot as by the sea. There are almost no mosquitoes and so you can spend the evenings and nights in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood.

Sicily at It's Very Best!
The rental was our last of four during our three weeks in Italy in early June 2019. The goal was to find something a bit off the beaten path and Casa Mario exceeded our expectations. The villa is located only a short distance from the town of Caltavuro, which had shops and a few restaurants. But the country location and the amazing views of the farms and hills to the west are what we liked the most. And the swimming pool didn't hurt - especially when it got very warm in the afternoons of the last two days we were there. We were also lucky to be introduced to the property by the owners, who are clearly passionate about this location and this wonderful villa. We would certain stay at Casa Mario again if we return to this part of Sicily.
Peaceful, lovely and gorgeous
We had a very relaxing time. The house is lovely, the pool is gorgeous and the local area is fascinating and beautiful. You can still travel to beaches and historical sites in Sicily from the house - but most days you'll find it hard to leave!
The local town is a working town and full of lovely local shops and is very warm and inviting. We can really recommend this villa.
Thank you so much. We hope to welcoming you back in our Casa Mario.
A Little Gem in the Hills of Sicily!
A very relaxing week, starting each day popping to Caltavuturo (1km) for freshly baked bread and visiting Bar Siracuse for coffee. Breakfast on the terrace with such fantastic views was something special. The house was very well equipped and had all we needed to make our stay comfortable. The pool was a delight and the gentle breeze was very welcome. Mr Serafino was very welcoming but discreet and made sure we had everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend Casa Mario to our friends.
Dear Calogero, thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure meeting you, Susan and your friends. We would love to welcoming you back in Casa Mario. Best regards, Susanne
A beautiful, serene paradise
Our stay at this property was unbelievably relaxing. The house was perfect and the pool was even better! It was just what we needed after the hustle and bustle of Rome and Florence. We grilled in the outdoor fireplace after shopping in the little town of Caltavuturo which is only 1 km away. Everything we needed to do this was there in the house.The people of the town were so welcoming and kind even though we did not speak italian. The property is gorgeous filled with fruit trees.olive trees, flowers and herbs. We picked peaches, put them in our wine and enjoyed it while sitting poolside looking out at the panoramic views.
Thank you for your kind review. We were very pleased that you were our guests and would be happy to welcome you back to our Casa Mario. Best regards Susanne
