Do not miss this charming, comfortable, family home
This place is a jewel ! Amazing stay for a week, the pool, the flowers and the villa was amazing! Great for kids and families and absolutely spacious for everyone! Carmelo, the host was so exceptional, great recommendations for tours and sites to visit, anywhere from my Etna climb to great pizza places, like Taboo a local pizza shop. 40 minute drive to beautiful Taormina and 7 minutes to a grocery store! If you stay anywhere in sicily, I recommend this charming beautiful place, relais la placa ❤️❤️❤️

Una villa da sogno dotata di ogni comfort, 5 camere da letto con bagno, saloni, cucina professionale e piscina privata. I proprietari poi sono persone gentili e disponibili. È stata una vacanza bellissima e speriamo di ritornarci presto. Un saluto da i ragazzi di Napoli!

Relaxing in regional Sicily
My extended family (children and parents) stayed at Relais la Placa for a week and had a wonderful time. The house is clean, spacious and elegant. Our 2 x children, in particular, had a great time relaxing and swimming in the pool. The hosts Carmelo and Roseangela were very attentive and helped book a tour to mount Etna with Etna Mobility which was an absolute highlight. The house is reasonably close to Francavilla however you really need a car to get around. Brits/Aussies don’t be afraid to drive, my husband did a great job! Would definitely visit again and/or recommend to friends.

Fantastic house with friendly, service-mindes hosts
This house used to be a hotel, which shows in the well-equipped restaurant kitchen, comfortable rooms and well-sized social areas. Inside, it has a luxurious feel to it and outside, the nice private pool area with sun beds is a huge plus. (However, there were only seven sun beds although there are ten beds inside, which was a small minus). By the pool, you will also find a small house with washer and shower. The bedrooms are all equipped with air-conditioning, tv, a safe and ensuite bathrooms. There is a wifi-network that will cover your most basic needs, but because of the house's remote location, mobile coverage was uneven. The house is located about 5 minutes by car from Francavilla di Sicilia, a small town where you will find a few stores, supermarkets, the local butcher, barber, etc. The surrounding areas are quiet hills, with grazing cows and sheep. There is some traffic outside the house as it is right by an intersection, but you will unlikely be disturbed. Also, around the pool area are high hedges that provide privacy. The hosts, Carmelo and his wife Rosangela, are very friendly and eager to help. Carmelo works as a local guide and can help you arrange trips or give directions on nearby attractions - do take the chance and ask him for advice or questions about the local history! One night, we had a private chef at our villa, serving us typical Sicilian food - a marvelous and tasty experience. I give this house and its hosts my warmest recommendations.

Paradise!
We have just returned from a week's stay in this beautiful villa. The villa, grounds and location were simply stunning. Located up in the hills and yet a good base for nearby excursions. We stayed put for a couple of days as there was everything you needed right here - lovely large pool, terraces, garden, sun beds, bbq, table tennis, table football etc. Large catering kitchen all stainless steel with everything you could possibly need. Plenty of lovely rooms/spaces downstairs so even in a large party you could find some space to yourself. There was also a bar, large orangery, and all the bedrooms were immaculate and high spec. There is a supermarket in Francavilla (about 10 mins drive) that stocks everything you need. Be wary if you arrive mid to late afternoon on a Sunday as we did as everything shut and restaurants don't open until later. Carmello was a wonderful host and immediately available if needed. Stunning villa, grounds, facilities and location. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Great villa - beautiful!
We had a lovely holiday here. Great accommodation, comfortable and clean and just stunning. Lovely pool. Carmelo was really helpful and suggested local places to visit. He visited every day to answer questions, maintain the pool and water the garden. Highly recommended.

GREAT HOUSE & VERY HELPFUL OWNERS!
We stayed here with 8 people in August 2014. Plenty of room, nicely decorated and well furnished. Owners (Carmello & Rose Angelina) were extremely friendly, and went above and beyond to make our stay a great experience - organizing trips, booking restaurants, trip to Etna etc. etc. We booked through an agent, but would recommend that you book directly with owners, pro
