Excellent property with charming owners.
Ten good friends from Modbury in Devon spent a very agreeable two weeks in Villa Anticha Aia near Scicli in The Ragusa area. Our charming hosts Oriana and Michele Falla could not have been more attentive, helpful and generous with their frequent gifts of local desserts for us to enjoy with our meals. The house and pool set in a lovely garden were highly restful, and the outside shady terrace was a delight for evening meals. We took full advantage go the barbecue area with its excellent wood-fired oven to bring out the boy scout in us. The bedrooms were comfortable, well air-conditioned and spacious The house is well positioned for visits to Syracuse,Ragusa,Monica and Noto as well as closer favourites Punta Secca,Sampieri and Scicli.
Beautiful villa in lovely grounds
We had a great week in this villa with a group of friends, 12 of us in all. The bedrooms, all but one with en-suite bathrooms, were very comfortable and there are areas to sit and relax both inside and outside on the terrace. The garden and pool are lovely. The villa is ideal for a large group or two families and Oriana and Michele are very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed visiting the local towns of Scicli and Noto and also the Inspector Montalbano trail around the area.
An unforgettable family holiday.
Where do I start.......... this was a special holiday for my family, a BIG birthday for one of my sons and we all met up - from Vancouver, Montreal and Brighton (UK) T Villa Antica Aia - six adults and three children under 9years of age.
From the moment we all arrived the holiday was wonderful. The house was even larger than we had expected, the gardens are spacious and the pool.... well, the pool was the highlight of the trip. It was very hot and all just rushed home from sightseeing and jumped into the pool. It was such a lot of fun.
Scicly which is a great little town, is a short 4km drive away and Sampieri with it's beach is only about 4kms away also. Easy access to a supermarket too. In fact driving to Ragusa, Noto or Modica is easy. Unless like us you get lost!! In which case you get to see the beautiful Sicilian countryside...
Oriana and her husband are very, very attentive hosts and it is obvious how much pleasure that they get out of having guests stay in their house. On our last night she, her husband and their two children, brought, and shared with us, a typical Sicilian meal. It was such a lovely gesture.
Also we wanted to have a special meal for THE birthday so Oriana arranged for a chef. She sent us a choice of menus and after the choice was made we just sat back and waited for the lovely food. That was very special.
I would have no hesitation in making a recommendation to spend your holiday at this lovely Villa.
Thank you Oriana for all your care and attention. My son thinks that you should get a 6 for the review!!!
What can I say about Valerie.. I was really excited to know her because she was my first American guest. She and her family were in my home during a special event: the 50th birthday of Valerie's son ( the oldest). I will never forget the excitement I felt when I saw them hugging at their arrival the first evening! They booked their holiday in my house, in fact, to celebrate their family meeting after three years (because Valerie live in Montreal, one of her son in Vancouver and the oldest in London, who celebrated his 50th birthday). She was very attentive to us, since our first contact Valerie has been very friendly and very kind with us (in fact she gave me a present from Canada), a very special guest to recommend. I really want to meet her again, because our meeting was unforgettable and it was born a new friendship!! Thank you so much to choose my house for your meeting, I will remind it forever!!!
Que dire de cette superbe villa, nous sommes à peine rentrés chez nous que la villa antica aïa nous manque... Tout était sublime, le lieu ( scicli est une ville superbe) , le jardin, la maison elle même oú tout était magnifique. Oriana et Michele sont tout simplement des hôtes fantastiques, ils ont une générosité et une gentillesse qui dépasse tout qualificatifs, ils nous ont fait découvrir des saveurs siciliennes délicieuses que nous garderons longtemps dans nos souvenirs. Nos enfants ( nous étions partis en famille avec 4 petits) auront pour longtemps de beaux souvenirs de Sicile. Merci pour tout, nous espérons tous pouvoir revenir très bientôt dans ce petit paradis.

Amazing property with very friendly owners
We stayed a week i July in this villa and it was an amazing experience. We were 9 people, 4 children between the age of 6 and 14 and we all loved the house as well as the garden with the large pool with trampoline. The house is large and is perfect for 2 or 3 families to share. It was nice and clean and looked every bit the pictures we had seen before. The owners Oriana and Michele are extremely friendly and was very attentive and helpful, and we could contact them anytime. Their genuine concern and their efforts to make our stay the best possible made this trip extra special (they even treated us with fresh vegetables and corn from their own garden (thanks again! :). The location i quiet and you need a car to get to the nearest town which is Scicli (a beautiful old town that has been listed as one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites) or to the beach although it is not a long drive. It is not a lot of tourists in this area which makes it feel very genuine. We would absolutely recommend this vacation home and hope to return soon!
I want thank Ulrika and her family for their opinion of us. It was a pleasure for me and my husband give hospitality to them because both Ulrika and her sister and mother with their family, were very kind. So we liked to offer them some of our specialities. We promised Ulrika a typical Sicilian dinner so we hope to meet Ulrika again in the future.
