"The house and setting were beautiful. Felice was so welcoming and we loved our stay. So much attention had been given to detail, the decor the fittings and the amenities. We loved sitting out looking at Mount Etna and enjoying the barbecue. Thank you again to Felice for a most wonderful time."

  • 5 of 5

"Very high standard of accomodation for the money paid. Outstanding view of Etna from the villa. Full Kitchen with all the basics like plates, glasses and cutlery. No noise as you're in an isolated villa. Only noise worth mentioning is the wind vane on top of the villa which creaks at night. Overall a top quality villa for very little money; Highly Recommended!"

  • 5 of 5

"We had a wonderful week at this lovely villa on the outskirts of Francavilla di Sicilia. The location of the villa was superb - the terrace had a perfect view of Mount Etna and was a fantastic place to spend the evenings, admiring the view as the sun went down (then watching the eruptions of Etna at night - truly fabulous). Not only does the villa have great views but it is also in a very tranquil location - perfect for getting away from it all. The villa itself was very comfortable and had all the amenities that we needed. And the owners, Felice and Erminia, were wonderful - we had a terrible first day with flight/car hire delays and did not reach Francavilla until midnight, but they greeted us warmly and assured us that it was not a problem. I highly recommend this villa to anyone wanting to stay somewhere close to the sights on the east side of the island but somewhere calm and peaceful - with the view of Etna thrown in, this place is magical!"

  • 4 of 5

The views were stunning and the environment couldn't have been more serene but the month of March can be extremely cold in Sicily. Heating was by a log fire it was difficult to keep going with the damp wood and we couldn't heat the main room. The electric trip switch would leave us in darkness if the electric fire was on with an electric plate, I have known this before in Italy. If the shower was running for more than three minutes the floor flooded and the toilet almost overflowed. If they could improve the electrics and the sewer problem in summer it would be a wonderful holiday.

Owner's Response: L'affittuario ha soggiornato presso la nostra residenza di campagna “Villa Uliveto” Francavilla di Sicilia dal 02/03/2006 al 09/03/2006, un periodo in cui in tutta Europa si è abbattuta un’ondata di freddo imprevista e, avvenimento raro nelle nostre zone, in quei giorni ha nevicato parecchio. Il Caminetto a legna, più che sufficiente per le temperature medie delle nostre zone, si è evidentemente rilevato insufficiente per quei giorni di freddo, non riscaldando a sufficienza i locali, in previsione di ciò avevamo anche fornito una stufa elettrica. Siamo venuti a conoscenza dell’otturazione dello scarico della doccia allorché i clienti successivi hanno lamentato questo inconveniente e siamo intervenuti prontamente per riparare il danno. Non capiamo il problema riguardo alla cucina elettrica, perfettamente funzionante, nel pieno rispetto delle norme di sicurezza. Agli affittuari, al momento del loro arrivo, sono stati dati ben 3 numeri telefonici (sia rete fissa che cellulari) per poterci contattare tranquillamente e liberamente in caso di qualsiasi necessità, ribadendo loro più volte la nostra disponibilità. Affittiamo Case per le vacanze già da tempo, sappiamo benissimo quanto sia importante lasciare soddisfatti i nostri ospiti, il loro soggiorno piacevole è la migliore delle pubblicità, è sufficiente una telefonata da parte dei nostri ospiti e facciamo di tutto per rendere ottimale il loro soggiorno in Sicilia. Chiunque venga in Sicilia spera sempre di trovare sole e cielo azzurro, non è colpa nostra se il tempo è stato inclemente.

Un site exceptionnel

  • 5 of 5

Pour ceux que l'isolement ne dérange pas mais qui recherchent le calme, la tranquillité, la sérénité, avec, en plus, une vue imprenable sur l'Etna, cette maison simple, nichée dans les oliviers, est un paradis.

Calme absolu, accueil, belle piscine au rendez-vous,à l écart de l'agitation des villes touristiques

  • 4 of 5

Nous venons de passer 3 semaines à la villa Ulivero, avec un accueil exceptionnel, chaleureux et familial de la part de Felice et Erminia.

Nous avons fait parti de leur famille pendant tout notre séjour.

La maison est un havre de paix au milieu des oliviers dans la montagne de Francavilla Di Sicilia.

Si vous aimez les cigales, le soleil et le calme absolu, ce lieu est fait pour vous.

La maison est idéalement équipée pour 4 personnes, avec une vaste salle avec billard, une grande cuisine (et tout le nécessaire pour cuisiner) une grande salle de bain et 2 belles chambres.

Une climatisation dans les chambres serait un plus en période estivale ou la température descend difficilement en dessous de 26°C en cœur de la nuit.

Ici, vous vous sentirez comme chez vous.

Une grande piscine est accessible jusqu'à 20h00 dans un magnifique jardin d'arbres fruitiers .... Un jardin d'eden dans lequel les propriétaires vous retrouverons pour vous donner tous les renseignements dont vous pourriez avoir besoin.

Vous croiserez de temps en temps, le soir venu, la famille des propriétaires qui se retrouvent pour passer la soirée au calme.

La piscine est située à 4 km de la maison, vous mettrez moins de 10 mn en voiture pour y plonger.

Bref, nous avons adorer le calme, le repos, l'accueil si familial et forcément la Sicile.
