Rural, quiet location. Great views of Mount Etna

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful week in Villa Allori. It was very comfortable and clean. Alessandro was an excellent host. The highlight of our week was the trip to Mount Etna and the visit to Alessandro's friends shop to sample local products. The pool area needs a bit of work and better sun beds. The rural location was very quiet but suited us. The views of Mount Etna glowing at night from our terrace were spectacular and leaves us with fond memories
Many thanks

A Sicilian paradise

  • 5 of 5
We arrived and were greeted by property manager extraordinaire Alessandro Fisauli. There was a problem with the small villa we rented (pictured below) so he upgraded us without hesitation. We stayed in a section of the largest villa on the property. The estate is set in the countryside, nested among vineyards, olive groves and orchards, yet only a 10 minute drive to Randazzo and 40 minutes from Taormina. Etna occasionally puffed smoke and provided an occasional rumble-quite a backdrop! The pool was delightful-a great spot for my morning coffee- and our son enjoyed it nearly every day.
Alessandro gave us a tour of the villa, both beautifully and artfully decorated and very comfortable. In the kitchen he had a selection of fresh fruit, wine and olive oil from the estate and a few other small necessities waiting for us. We had a lovely kitchen, with all we needed to prepare fabulous Sicilian food. Alessandro escorted us to Randazzo where we were shown the market, a speciality shop with every Sicilian delight imaginable, as well as the best green grocer in town. Alessandro assured us we would be well taken care of because we were his guests, and we were!
The estate has much to offer. We had excellent massages and a fascinating tour of Mount Etna personally guided by Alessandro. He reserved chairs and parking for us at the five star resort, La Plage, at breathtakingly beautiful Isola Bella. He also arranged for a Sicilian meal for the four of us. It was top notch. He was available whenever we needed him and made sure all our desires were met. We could not have had a more peaceful and memorable stay. Alessandro also an all around great guy!

Great country Villa!

  • 5 of 5
Initially we weren't sure regarding the location of the Villas.
In fact it is ideal, considering one doesn't have the hassle of the other tourists (it is protected from everything, in the middle of the countryside) and it is really close to all the facilities and particularly the Taormina beaches...
The Villa is great, newly renovated, beautiful views and there is always the caretaker available to help you out during your stay.
We had a great stay. I would say that the little extra cost compared to the other products we tried is worth it.

Owner's Response: The Villa is, in fact, ideally situated: close to the beaches (30min), not far from the airport (1 hour), close to the highway (25 min)... Though, completely isolated in the middle of the countryside and the mountains, providing a unique stress and noise free environment.
It needs to be underlined that the quality of the product (Villas fully refurbished last year), the quality of the services (airconditioning, Tennis, Swimming Pool, private terrace, historic parc, fuly equipped kitchen, modern and functional bathroom,..), the design of the interior/exterior (combination of traditional style with designers touch - Philippe Stark, Hermes and Ralph Lauren features) and the assistance given by our Villa Manager (Alessandro is on ground and always available to help you have the best stay!) compensate the small price difference.
We try to give you the best... and we give our best to give you an unforgettable stay... and to make you want to come back...

Wundervolle Unterkunft am Rande des Ätnas

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten die letzten beiden März-Wochen in der Villa degli Allori und waren begeistert. Obwohl w/ des strengen Winters die Landschaft noch nicht wirklich grün war war es doch beeindruckend bei schönstem Wetter von der Terrasse auf den rauchenden Ätna zu gucken. Das Haus ist sehr komfortabel ausgestattet und sehr geräumig (Heizung benötigt man im März noch hat uns 100 Euro für 2 Wochen extra gekostet). Der Standort ist ideal für Weinliebhaber da fast direkt an der Strada del Vino gelegen mit sehr hochwertigen Weinen. Auch für Golfer super da ein excellenter Platz nur 15 Minuten entfernt. Verwalter Alessandro ist super freundlich kann englisch und französisch und hilft bei allen Sachen sofort weiter. Man bekommt sogar ein eigenes Handy um ihn jederzeit bei Problemen anrufen zu können. Alles in allem eine wunderschöne Unterkunft für Leute die fernab vom Rummel auf einem Landgut unterkommen möchten und von dort Sizilien entdecken wollen. Achtung da Haus bereits in 500 m Höhe liegt immer etwas frischer als an der Küste und auch die Vegetation hat etwas Verspätung.

Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5
Wir verlebten einen wunderbaren Urlaub. Der Urlaub fängt sofort an. Im sehr schön und hochwertig ausgestatteten Haus warteten frische Blumen, Zitronen, alle Zutaten für ein Pastagericht....und köstlicher Wein vom Vermieter auf uns. Der Vermieter ist unheimlich nett und hilfsbereit. Gibt einem viele gute Tips, organisiert Ausflüge, etc.. Super. Wir machten viel weniger weite Touren wie geplant, da die Umgebung, und das Haus so wunderschön war. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen.
