“This was simply a wonderful villa, made all the more marvellous by the very friendly owners, Salvatore and Sandra”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was simply a wonderful villa, made all the more marvelous by the very friendly and helpful owners, Salvatore and Sandra.

The villa itself is far more spacious than the photos indicate. It is a rustic Sicilian style villa, very well renovated/maintained, and decorated with an artistic eye. It has three sizable bedrooms (two air-conditioned), two second floor balconies, a lounge, an indoors dining area with large rustic dining table, and a kitchen that includes all the facilities you could need (plus a big pizza oven, which we didn’t attempt to use).

Outside the villa was perfect for a family vacation. A wonderful walled secret garden is full of all the herbs you could want for a Sicilian meal, and has seating next to a built-in barbeque. In addition there are two further eating areas with tables and chairs at two levels, both under shade. In the gardens are grape vines (both of the eating and wine making variety), almond trees, peaches and so much more.

For entertainment, the swimming pool has to be seen to be believed – large, impeccably clean, and warmed by the Sicilian sun. With under water lighting, some nights the whole family was still in it at midnight. Sunbeds, table & chairs under cover, parasols, and inflatables all there… incredible. On the other side of the villa there is a boules/petanque sand court and balls. Plus there are 3 bicycles available for use.

Access to the villa was a bit of a challenge, but not a major issue. The only negative we have to say about he whole vacation was the one-day trip we had with Mama Sicily (the organization that manages a number of villas). This certainly was not value for money (we took the mount Etna day trip with them). We’d recommend that you do your own thing as Sicily was easy to drive, has plenty of places to eat, and was simply a joy to visit.

Thank you Sandra and Salvatore for a wonderful vacation, leaving us with warm memories of Sicily to last us a lifetime. We hope to see you again soon.
