Résidence de vacances bien sympa

  • 4 of 5

Lieu de résidence conforme à la description, très agréable,propre et très grand. Nous avons passé 15 jours très agréables. Les propriétaires sont charmants et avons eu la chance de connaître leur nièce vivant en Allemagne qui parlant français nous a bien aidé !

Points positifs : Michèle est adorable, disponible et à notre écoute pour toutes demandes ( ex. : nous voulions un plat à tarte pour faire un gâteau d'anniversaire et comme il y en avait pas, il est allé en acheter :-) ), table de ping pong, musique, billard, babyfoot à disposition pour le plus grand plaisir de tous, espace de jeux pour les plus petits, parking pour les voitures, la piscine est grande (non sécurisé) et nettoyée tous les matins, cuisine d'été super agréable, four à pizza génial!, logements agréables, les chalets sont grands 5 couchages dans chacun des chalets avec salle de bains et wc, l'autre logement agréable également, le lieu de résidence à 25/30 min de Siracuse, ville à ne pas manquer, à proximité de Pantalica, à 1h30 de l'Etna ....

Soleil présent mais il y a de l'air, ne pas oublier la crème solaire cependant car le soleil tape bien,très peu de moustique, " pennymarket" pour acheter à manger à 10 min.

Points négatifs : le wifi que nous avons eu à peine une semaine ....., les aboiements des chiens environnant le soir et la nuit, le bruit des pas les propriétaires le soir dans le logement se situant en dessous de leur logement et la présence des copains à la piscine ou au ping pong par exemple, lieu privatisé par nos soins donc on aurait aimé n'y voir personne.

Conclusion : vacances top, on y était bien tous les 15, nous recommandons à l'unanimité cette résidence.

An accomodation to come back to!

  • 4 of 5

A very nice place to stay, we really enjoyed our stay at Villa Sofia! The owners are very friendly, the apartment and cottages were nice and clean and had everything you could wish for during a stay. The swimming pool was lovely for both adults and children and the area that had a pingpong table and a pool table among other things was a definite plus!

The owners do not, however, speak any English but the son does a bit and was very helpful in trying to translate over the phone when needed. The Villa is situated a bit outside of Solarino, having a car is therefore a must to be able to get around and experience the area.

Our children still speak of the stay even though it has been nearly 10 months since we were there!

Siamo stati ospiti a Villa Sofia due settimane ad Agosto. Eravamo tre famiglie e ci siamo trovati benissimo!

Il complesso e' molto bello (bellissima piscina, zona attrezzata con giochi vari, proiettore e telo per vedere film insieme, cucina attrezzata x mangiare e cucinare insieme) e molto curato.

I proprietari sono stati sempre disponibile e gentili.

Essendo un po' in collina il clima e' stato ideale (mai usato il condizionatore).

La villa non è vicinissima al mare ma è perfetta per chi come noi comunque desidera girare la zona e cambiare spiaggia ogni giorno.

I nostri ragazzi si sono divertiti tantissimo!

Semplicemente Bellissimo!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati ospiti di questa bellissima villa e abbiamo trascorso una settimana come a casa. I proprietari sono davvero persone splendide, ci hanno fatto sentire a nostro agio e molto generosi e disponibili alle nostre richieste. La struttura è davvero completa di tutto, offre anche di più di quanto c'è scritto, possibilità di utilizzare un'area coperta per poter ballare, cantare e suonare, giocare a bigliardo, ping pong e calcio balilla, oppure semplicemente sedersi ad un tavolo a chiacchierare mentre si può sorseggiare una bella birra fresca spillata autonomamente. A differenza di altre strutture in affitto, la piscina con idromassaggio, il prato e quant'altro sono sempre puliti e ben curati, inoltre anche la collocazione permette in poco tempo di raggiungere tutte le località più importanti, è chiaramente indispensabile avere una macchina per potersi muovere.

Noi abbiamo alloggiato nella struttura più grande dove comodamente abbiamo dormito in 6, con la possibilità di potersi cucinare ed inoltre anche se fornita di aria condizionata, la casa è molto fresca e non è davvero necessaria.

Anche le 2 case in legno sono molto curate e dotate di aria condizionata con possibilità di cucinarsi e adatte per 4 persone.

Non posso che consigliare questa struttura sperando di poterci tornare un'altra volta.

Wow !

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo appena finito le nostre vacanze in Sicilia dove siamo stati ospiti di Villa Sofia e non possiamo che dare un voto positivo a questo fantastico posto. I proprietari sono gentilissimi e disponibili, è un po' come essere a casa. Il giardino, la piscina e l'area attrezzata bar sono decisamente molto curati e si gode sempre di un clima ventilato grazie alla posizione. Adatto x famiglie con bambini, ma anche a comitive di amici.

Lo consiglio, ma non nella settimana di ferragosto perché dobbiamo tornarci noi!!!

Ein erholsamer und wundervoller Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist wirklich mit Liebe zum detaill ausgestattet. Man fühlt sich direkt wie zu Hause. Es ist alles sauber und es ist sehr geräumig. Auf dem Amwesen ist ein toller Pool, der zum schwimmen einläd. Das Wasser ist sauber und sogar mit einem Massage/Whirlpool Ecke ausgestattet. Die Zeit kann man sich mit Kickern, Tischtennis oder einfach die Seele in einer Hängematte baumeln lassen. Für Kinder gibt es eine Schaukel und eine Rutsche. Der Eigentümer hat eine Bar/Sitzecke errichtet, wo wir einige Abende in geselliger Runde verbracht haben-mit Charaoke zum Beispiel. Der Eigentümer und seine Familie sind sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Sie sind stehts daran bedacht, das alles ordentlich und sauber ist. In die Stadt nach Siracusa sind es ca. 20km. Siracusa ist eine historische Stadt, die viel zu biete hat und der abendliche Spaziergang an der Marine ist wirklich empfehlenswert. Es gibt viele Strände im Umkreis von Siracusa, die sehr sauber sind. Es sind schöne Sandstrände. Mit meiner Familie aben wir einen traumhaften, abwechslungsreichen und erholsamen Urlaub verbracht.
