HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS WONDERFUL PLACE!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and her now-husband found this property online and thought it would be perfect for their designation wedding. And it absolutely was. Le Case del Principe, its owner and the staff exceeded all of our expectations. I wish I could rate this property more than a 5!!! We had 31 guests in total, including the bride and groom's immediate families and their closest friends. The property was magnificent. The housing arrangements were perfect for everyone, highlighted by goat and sheep herd traipsing by our windows each morning and evening! The two pools were wonderful, well maintained and provided an unmatched place to relax and enjoy Mt. Etna and the surrounding mountains. The playground behind the pool was perfect for our 6-year old guest too!

We were cared for exquisitely by the Amazing Monica, the property manager, and had three spectacular, authentic, 5-star Sicilian meals, including the food for the wedding reception, by Maria the Magnificent. We wanted to put both of these remarkable women in our suitcases and bring them home with us!

The arrangements for the wedding and the wedding reception were handled by Monica and the staff down to every detail to where the event was an unforgettable, magical day that nobody in attendance will ever forget! It just could not have been more amazing or spectacular.

All in all, this was a wonderful week of fun, relaxation and joy. Le Case del Principe is the perfect venue for a destination wedding or a gathering of an extended family or friends, you will be welcomed warmly and will feel very much at home in this magical and amazing place!

Magnifico!!!!

LE CASE DEL PRINCIPE

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Le Case! The tidy rooms, relaxing patios and pool areas, rustic scenery, and the fragrance of orange blossoms from the nearby groves- all in the shadow of Etna made for an unforgettable holiday. Of course the icing on the cake was the indefatigable concierge, Signora Monica. She was always at our beck and call with a smile on her face.
Can't wait to return!!

MY STAY AT VILLA ETNA

  • 5 of 5
My name is Steven Cirafesi and I am from Phila, PA. I traveled to Sicily for 2 weeks for an orchid exploration to see the wildflowers and terrestrial orchids growing in the mountains on Sicily Between Catania and Taormina.
19 of us Botanists stayed at Villa Etna for 8 days and we had an incredible time !!!!! The views were Spectacular , exp of Mount Etna . The second night we got to see the red lava flowing out of the Volcano. Monica who is the lady who check us into the villa was marvelous, she was sooooo Sweet, I miss her a lot. She was a great reference for us , she told us what restaurants and sites to see when we weren't orchid hunting. would definitely stay at this Villa again, I miss it soooo much. The swimming pools were nice, and we were lucky that is was sunny every day. The kitchen was wonderful and going to the supermaket was a neat experience..... Make sure you weigh your own produce on the scale before checking out at the register , that was different for us who are from America. Our trip was 80 percen wildflower botanizing, but in our free time we did go to see the Greek ruin ampitheatre in Taormina which was really special and the shopping was fabulous. The orange trees at the villa were in full fruit and the flower blossoms smelled delicious.

WEDDING RENTAL IN SICILY

  • 5 of 5
We were married on the property in late 2009. We had a wonderful experience. Principe Gabriele was wonderful at arranging all the of the details beforehand and week of. We were not the type of people that needed to know all of the details (IE how the tables would be arranged or even the details of the ceremony) but if that was something that was important to you I am sure he could tell you. We preferred not to be concerned over those types of details and it worked out perfectly. However, this is not to say that they were not fantastic about the details we needed worked out before hand. For instance we had a few vegetarians in our party and it was wonderfully arranged with fantastic vegetarian options. Likewise, we really enjoy bocce ball and the court was resurfaced and a new set of balls were purchased right before our arrival to allow us to use the courts. After flying with my dress, it needed tending to before our wedding and this last minute detail was easily arranged. I was returning back to school before after the wedding so our budget was pretty tight, they were fantastic about letting us pick and choose what we wanted to add and what just wasn't that important to us. However, after seeing the pictures that they took from the wedding, in retrospect, I would have purchased a picture package. We also met his Principe Gabriele's wife and beautiful daughter. They were both great and it made the whole experience so nice. It felt like close friends were helping us out with everything. The woman who helped us with the planning and also the final translation for the wedding was also fantastic (I am just blanking on her name right now and feel horrible about it because she was so fantastic).

The property itself was absolutely gorgeous. The pictures just don't do it justice. The cottages work out beautifully for families or more private couples. We used the larger house for my husbands college friends that all enjoyed being back together again in one large house. The two pools were both fantastic and it was fun to switch between the two.

We enjoyed walking downtown from the property and really enjoyed the "Lucky Bar." Our friends went to Mount Etna, something we are hoping to go back and enjoy ourselves. Downtown Taormina was also fantastic and we went there several times.

We can't wait until we can go back and enjoy this property again. It was truly a wonderful property and wedding.

A PRINCELY STAY AT THE PRINCELY VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from a 1 week stay at the Casa dei Principe. Gabriele was a gracious host, and is owner of the villa. Our group consisted of 5 families, with 10 adults, 8 children, and 3 infants, and the central villa and surrounding apartments easily accommodated our large group with comfort and style. The views from the back deck are spectacular, overlooking vineyards and orchards, with the snow-capped Mt Etna in the background. We had 7 wonderful dinners at the villa, some outdoors on the patio, and some in the dining room, and our entire group truly enjoyed our stay.
