Beautiful villa and exceptional hosts

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful villa is very well equipped for a comfortable stay for self catering including outdoor BBQs. The decor is very modern and fresh and we really appreciated the fresh fruit bowl, wine, coffee pods for the machine, basic cooking ingredients, cleaning equipment including dishwasher tablets and toilet paper which made our stay so comfortable. The white wine, water and ice in the fridge freezer on our arrival was a lovely touch.

Any small issues during our stay were dealt with immediately by both Claudio and Susan (his English translator) who were both helpful and friendly and immediately contactable throughout our stay and before our arrival.

The weather at the end of March was lovely (22 degrees) but the unheated pool was a bit too refreshing to use much although would be lovely later in the year! If you are lucky enough to visit then, the Mediterranean is only a short stroll away (approximately 200m) and looked inviting even in March.

However, we explored the beautiful south-east and east of Sicily easily from the villa and enjoyed visiting Mt Etna, Siracusa, Ragusa, Noto, Modica and Ispica. The wild flowers in Spring on the sides of all the roads are amazing! We also travelled to The Villa Romano de Casales which (although it took a whole day there and back through beautiful scenery) was exceptional for its mosaics - which my husband a keen archaeologist had never seen the like of anywhere.

We would like to personally thank you Claudio, for arranging our special viewing area for the Easter procession in Ispica, which made us feel honoured to be part of your family celebrations.

We would not hesitate to recommend a stay in this property and you will find it hard to find a more accommodating host than Claudio!

Grazie Claudio!

A private, perfectly equipped and beautifully designed property, minutes from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the gates of Gelsomino, we knew we were somewhere special.

We were warmly greeted by the owners, Claudio and Viviana and their friend, Susan and her husband, who spoke perfect English and explained all we needed to know about the house and the area. They were all very kind and helpful to us and available on what's app anytime we had a query or were looking for a recommendation.

The property is tastefully and beautifully designed, equipped with all the comfort and necessities that anyone could hope for. From the centrally piped music system and ambient lighting, to the food parcel upon arrival, to the many comfortable seating areas, well-equipped kitchen and immaculate linens, It was a joy for our family of four to spend a week here.

It is a calming oasis, with a fantastic pool and the most wonderfully scented plants surrounding the whole property. We would highly recommend this lovely holiday destination and would hope to return there again.

Thanks for your great hospitality and friendliness ❣️

Peace and quiet two minutes from the sea

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many holiday houses in many different countries and this one has to be one of the best.

The listing was accurate in every detail, everywhere sparkling clean and beautifully kept. Lovely towels and bed linen and a fully equipped kitchen.

Claudio, Viviana and Susan were wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome with wine, fruit, and a basket full of local products (not to mention food in the cupboard and mineral water, fruit juice and milk in the fridge)

We spent two weeks exploring the ancient sites, Baroque towns and fabulous beaches in the area. The weather was glorious, the beaches were mostly empty and the sea was warm enough for swimming. At the end of the day it was great to come back and sit outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the warm evening. It was like summer only better!

We would have no hesitation in recommending this house and hope to come back ourselves one day.

Thank you Claudio, Viviana and Susan for a wonderful holiday experience in such a beautiful place.

Sommerurlaub im Oktober...

Leere Strände, leere Straßen, lebensfrohe Menschen und ein toller Vermieter. Stellt übrigens hervorragendes Olivenöl her, wir durften mit seiner Familie mit zur Ölmühle. Das "Wohnzimmer " draußen am Pool wollten wir gar nicht mehr verlassen...

Toller Urlaub in einem sehr gepflegtem Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 14 Tage in diesem Haus verbracht .Eignet sich zum Erholen und Abschalten.Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.Das Anwesen ,der Pool und die Räumlichkeiten sind in einem sehr guten Zustand. Besonders hat uns die Freundlichkeit unseres Vermieters Claudio gefallen der immer für uns da war. Er hat uns gute Ideen für Ausflüge gegeben und dafür gesorgt dass es uns an nichts fehlt.Das Anwesen kann ich nur empfehlen.
