About the property

Marvellous holidays in an exclusive villa ... for its strategic position (between sea and sky), its furnishing (quality and typical Sicilian), the fascination of the art village of SAVOCA and for the beauties that offers our wonderful island (exuberant nature, stunning views, history, culture, sea, mountains, volcanos, ...).

Like all our guests also you should grant yourself an unforgetable stay at our villa :-)!

Villa Savoca was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The quaint hillside village of Savoca was all and more than we expected. The views are spectacular.....the villa, wonderful. Watched the sunrise every morning, over mainland Italy. Walked the cobblestoned streets every day........amazing churches, Mount Etna, Bar Vitelli, and best of all, the

restaurant GELSO NERO..........the owner, Antonello, and the waiter, Giovanni, made every lunch special. We ate there every day but one, and that was because it was closed on Mondays! Antonello is also the owner of the Villa, and was most helpful if we needed anything. I am missing the incredible views, and the glorious church bells. There were 4 of us (2 couples) and the Villa was the perfect accommodation for us. Thank you, Antonello, for making our stay a wonderful memory.

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

First class accommodation. The property was clean and well maintained. We found the beds very comfortable and air conditioning was very useful. We enjoyed relaxing on the terraces and we are already missing the wonderful views. Location was just what we were looking for as I knew Taormina would be very busy in August. We enjoyed using the BBQ and enjoyed a couple of meals on the terrace. All the restaurants in Savoca are very good but one of our favourites was "Gelso Nero". We hired a car at the airport which was large enough for all our luggage as we were a family of 4 adults. The roads in Savoca are very narrow so you have to be very careful. We parked the car a little further up from the villa where the road is wider. Savoca was very remote and idylic. A suggestion I think would go down very well would be to arrange to pay for a welcome pack of groceries in order to have milk, water, tea, coffee etc on arrival. As we were in Savoca during the Fiesta celebrations we had trouble gaining access from the centre of town to the villa further up the mountain. This was due to traffic control by the police. Some form of residential pass would have been very helpful at this time saving a lot of explanation if you don't speak Italian.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to other guests and hope they enjoy their holiday stay as much as we did.

  • 5 of 5

"This typical from outside house is amazingly furnished, and decorated with love and care. The interior is luxurious and everything is collected with great taste.

The breathtaking (100+m downwards) view from the balcony and terrace is to the mountains and the sea in the distance. Directly from the balcony you can see a valley about 200m behind.

Savoca itself is a tiny picturesque town, cosy and quiet, with tourists visiting it only during the day. There are only 2 bars and 2 restaurants and a cafe. Bakery is only open in the morning. The closest shop is about 4 km down the mountain, so you better rent a car. But Savoca is worth visiting, and better - living in it. Very nice friendly people (of course, including the host, Antonello!) and the feeling of the town with historical heritage (13th century church is about 120m from the house).

The house is equipped with all necessary home appliances (washing machine, dishwasher etc.), however bring soaps and detergents with you. The big terrace has many places to sit, to have nice lunch outside and 2 barbeques+1 electric barbeque.

We travelled 2 families with 2 children (3 and 5 y.o.) and everyone was really happy in this house!"

"Traditional, yet comfortable. Spacious terrace with stunning view of the distant sea and interesting housing perched on opposite cliffs. Chirping birds occasionally breaking the tranquility of the surroundings. It's simply breathtaking Awesome"

Schönes Haus, aber unfreundlicher Service vor Ort

  • 3 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr hochwertig eingerichtet. Beschwerliche Anfahrt, aber dann sehr schöne Aussicht. Unfreundliche Abwicklung durch den Besitzer, der auch Anfragen z.B. Bezüglich fehlender Sitzauflagen abwies. Wünsche vor Ort bezüglich Sitzauflagen wurden abgewiesen. Keinerlei Bereitschaft, Internet zu ermöglichen. Ausstattung müsste dringend bei Küche ergänzt werden (nur 3 Weingläser).

Owner's Response: Es ist manchmal schwer, den Gästen gerecht zu werden, auch wenn man Alles daran setzt. In diesem Fall ganz besonders - die Villa wurde zwar sehr geschätzt, doch: 1. Schon die Übergabe ging schief: im Vertrag wurde 17.00 Uhr abgemacht, auf Wunsch der Gäste wurde sie dann auf den späten Nachmittag (19.00 Uhr) verschoben, dann erscheinen sie trotzdem um 17.00 Uhr und waren unzufrieden, dass wir nicht vor Ort waren und auf sie wartet - so startet man gleich schlecht! 2. Die Villa besitzt keine Sitzauflagen für die Liegestühle und sieht auch keine solche vor (weder im Text noch in den Bildern), die Gäste dagegen verlangten solche - wie kann man da helfen? 3. Wir haben im selben Dorf Savoca ein Restaurant, wo wir beliebig viele Weingläser ausleihen können - wenn bei Bedarf gefragt worden wäre, hätten wir hier sogleich Abhilfe geschaffen - schade! 4. Zum krönenden Abschluss haben wir bei der Rücknahme festgestellt (nicht dass es von den Gästen angezeigt worden wäre), dass eine handgemalte Porzellan-Türfalle zerbrochen worden war und, wie im Vertrag vorgesehen, haben wir Ihnen einen Kostenbeitrag (nicht den Gesamtbetrag) von der Kaution zurückgehalten - das kommt teuer zu stehen, wie der obige Kommentar zeigt. Schade, dass wir diesmal nicht imstande gewesen sind, den Gästen all Ihre Wünsche zu erfüllen! Wir werden uns noch mehr Mühe gebe und es weiterhin mit vollem Einsatz versuchen.
