About Mike

I inherited this property when I was 11 (my father passed away). I spent there all my holidays since I was a kid... Now I'm a world wide traveller, though, I always return to this beautiful place to relax and take advantage of its incredible energy.

Mike purchased this chateau / country house in 1979

Why Mike chose Castiglione di Sicilia

This property is a special place. It is unique. Why? Because of its history... Because its previous owners (all family ancestors) always loved it and considered it special...

It has a unique Karma... a special energy...

Though, I travel around the world, rarely have I seen such a special and unique location.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

- Breathtaking panorama

- Beautiful night skies full of stars

- View on Mount Etna and its breathtaking eruptions

- Calmness and lack of stress

- Special karma and positive energy

A very special family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Villa Dei Baroni and it was I think even better than our first. There was something for everyone - and there were a lot us....12 in fact! Alexandro was as helpful as ever - arranging trips and visits - the festival at Castiglione di Sicilia was amazing and our sunset walk up Etna to see the eruptions, spectacular. And the food...... our chef Maria Antionella was incredible, giving us a truly sicilian dining experience.

A memorable holiday and a very special place - we hope to return again someday.

Truly enjoyed our week in Sicily and Villa Baroni!

  • 4 of 5

Very family-friendly villa with plenty of options for being entertained on the grounds (i.e., tennis, hiking, ping pong, cooking) and great access to Mt Etna and the surrounding towns. The property was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. Alessandro was a very gracious host, andprovided great suggestions for touring Sicily and hiking Mt Etna. He even took us on an amazing hike of Mt Etna - a highlight of the week! I would certainly recommend this location for a large group or two families looking for a place away from the usual tourist centers. The visits to Randazzo, Taormina and Mt Etna were the highlights of our trip. The food at Da' Antonio was excellent as well when we went out to eat. Cooking in the gourmet kitchen and eating on the terrace was also very enjoyable. Best to arrive with daylight as the roads were slightly tricky and bumpy at the end, but we acclimated quickly. We appreciated Alessandro's willingness to adjust the breakfast fare as well to add a bit of variety. It was certainly nice to have someone fix breakfast every morning and clean the villa daily.

Magnifico Capodanno in gruppo

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo passato un bel Capodanno a Villa Dei Baroni(eravamo 5 coppie) che è una villa molto bella e confortevole .Le camere sono ampie e luminose con letti grandi comodissimi e bagno (purtroppo la mansarda ha un bagno piccolo e molto scomodo).La villa è ben arredata e corredata e il panorama è magnifico.Ottimo il servizio di pulizia quotidiano e l'accoglienza di Alessandro che ci ha dato consigli preziosi sulla zona e i ristoranti anche se dobbiamo rimproverarlo per la poca chiarezza riguardo il pagamento del riscaldamento (extra).Il posto è agevole per fare passeggiate, rilassarsi e godere di questa bellissima zona che è l'Etna.Siamo andati via con il desiderio di tornare al più presto

I had a very nice stay at the Carranco

  • 5 of 5

I had a very nice stay at the Carranco, the location is extremely convenient since allow both visiting the Etna (what experience !!), enjoying charming Taormina as well as other typical Sicilian villages. The accommodation we were given was indeed comfortable, high quality furniture, enchanting bed and an hypnotizing view. Lying on the side of the swimming pool or walking around the gardens and vineyard provided wonderful relaxing moments; The owners are really lovely and with a kind and respectful attitude endeavoring to accommodate all our expectations and requests. Finally I have to mention how nice is waking up and enjoy such a tasteful and appealing breakfast. We will certainly come back to the Carranco and will advise our best friends to do so if intending to spend some time in this part of Sicily

Simply amazing

  • 3 of 5

Absolutely fantastic. The host was so helpful, beyond anything we have experienced before. The lunch venue on our day of departure was simply amazing. Everything about the villa was exceptional. The whole of our party thought it was one of the best villas we have stayed in. Shame Etna didn't put on a light show - that would have made it 'out of this world'. Thank you once again for letting us enjoy your home. Party from Rutland, Sheffield, Leeds and Swindon.

Great stay in a luxury home

  • 5 of 5

First of all we would like to underline that the Villas are exactly as the ones shown on the website and, moreover, the panorama and the atmosphere are really special.

We spent two wonderful weeks. Originally we had plans to visit the whole of Sicily and to go every day to the beach. We ended up spending much more time than expected at the house, in the garden and at the pool. We almost felt at home.

Though, it gave us time to visit most of Sicily (from the location it is very easy to access the major highways of Sicily) and to go o few times at the beach (only 30 min by car from the property).

We highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: The atmosphere is really special... One feels like at home... The absence of stress and noise, the perfume of the countryside, the great panorama, the incredible skies with thousand stars, the vineyards and the Olive trees, the volcano all together makes it a unique place. Relaxing as a holiday should be.
