Excellent family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3 families with young children and we have spent two weeks in this villa. It was a wonderful overall experience.

First of all, we have appreciated the owner's help in setting up the rooms (bed configuration) and he has provided a lot of information on the setup. Unlike other places where we have been, he was very proactive in communicating with us upfront.

Upon arrival, he waited for us at a crossroad, despite the late hour and drove us to the villa. We found there a good welcome package that was very helpful until we did the shopping the next day.

The owner was very helpful in providing orientation and advice; he made some good recommendations in regard to places to see, how to park, safety advice and many others. He has even helped us during our stay with reservations at restaurants, which turned out to be excellent choices.

As for the villa and the location, I totally subscribe to Laurie B.'s observations, so I will not repeat that.

We totally recommend booking that place for a family/large group vacation.

Owner's Response: I want to really thank all of you becouse we had a very good relationship that was more "from friend to friend" than "from host to host". I hope that we will meet one more time some day in the future and maybe not here but in your country that i am sure it's another beautiful place to visit. thanks a lot and....see you soon!

The property is very clea...

  • 5 of 5

The property is very clean and tidy located in a quiet village mostly full of summer villas. The village itself, Avola Antica, is located 15 minutes out of Avola up a steep windy road but the views from the village are fantastic. The village also has a pizzaria, which is very handy. This location is very central for exploring south east Sicily or if you wish less than half an hour from excellent beaches. The owners of the villa were fantastic, helping us on many occasions and on our arrival, which was in the evening had been very kind and placed some food provisions in the fridge for us. I would definitely recommend this property to others.

Un angolo di tranquillità a 10 minuti dal mare

  • 5 of 5

La casa è bella, fresca, accogliente, adeguatamente attrezzata e MOLTO meglio di come si presenta nelle fotografie. Io, la mia famiglia e i miei amici (13 persone in tutto), abbiamo trascorso un periodo veramente magico! Da segnalare la gentilezza, la cortesia e la grande disponibilità del proprietario, una persona veramente per bene.

Owner's Response: La prima cosa che mi viene in mente ripensando al periodo che le famiglie della sig.a Raffaella hanno passato qui nella villa è che è stato veramente un grande piacere sedere a volte con tutti loro per delle conversazioni su argomenti semplici o argomenti importanti. E' successo non poche volte e mi sembrava di conoscerli da una vita intera. Spero di cuore, veramente, di incontrarli di nuovo.

Piacevole soggiorno ad Avola.

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso in questa bella villa 6 giorni delle nostre vacanze in Sicilia . Eravamo un gruppo composto da tre famiglie (6 adulti, 6 adolescenti e un bambino) e tutti hanno trovato la casa bella, spaziosa e soprattutto pulita. Situata in collina ad Avola antica, a 7km da Avola, la casa, grazie alla sua posizione, è molto fresca la sera, cosa molto importante considerando le alte temperature dell'estate Siciliana. Si trova a pochi km da bellissime città come Noto, Siracusa, Ragusa, Acireale, Taormina e bellissime spiagge come Marzamemi.

Italo, il proprietario, è stato molto disponibile e presente dandoci sempre utili indicazioni.

Da consigliare e... grazie Italo!!!

Alla prossima!

Un angolo di tranquillità

  • 4 of 5

Siamo un gruppo composto da 3 famiglie (7 adulti e 4 bambini) e ci siamo trovati molto bene presso questa abitazione. L'immobile è in una posizione tranquilla, in buono stato e pulito. Gli spazi sono ampi e vivibili e l'appartamento al primo piano è dotato di lavatrice e lavastoviglie. Ci sono stati forniti biancheria per letto e bagno e le pulizie di fine soggiorno sono comprese nel prezzo. Il proprietario è molto disponibile e ci ha dato informazioni utili su ristoranti e spiagge.

Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo!

Very nice Villa

  • 5 of 5

First of all we would like to thank the owner Mr. Troja for his excellent support during our stay. Meanwhile we spent our summer vacation the fourth time in this Villa and as usual he was very friendly and always available if needed. We had again a wonderful vacation time and the house is in excellent conditions and very comfortable. We feel like coming home and everything we need is available. Each sleeping room has a dedicated bath room which perfectly protect the privacy. Outside is enough space for the kids to jump around even though we had three cars parking there. Very nice is, that we see progress on the accommodation every year. This time, new couches were implemented on the ground floor and on the first floor which are very comfortable while watching TV. Furthermore two hammocks has been installed outside where you can relax in the shadow over the midday heat. As mentioned by other guests, it is a very quiet place but only 10min by car to the sea. Supermarkets could be reached in the same time frame. Overall a wonderful place to spend summer vacation and relax a bit. Thanks again and we are looking forward to come again for vacation.

Grazie Sign. Troja e a presto !
