Excellent service! Lovely villa everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

The only thing I would ask for is maybe a booklet on how some of the appliances work i.e. TV, washing machine, etc but generally these were self explanatory. Everything was perfect! Would recommend anyone staying here though to purchase food items before going to villa especially if arriving later in evening!

Lovely house with great views of the sea and Mount Etna, very nice swimming pool and grounds.

  • 4 of 5

Mario and Katy were very good hosts, available to help at any time. We were made very welcome after a long flight delay and Katy met us just off the motorway to guide us to the villa - we would never have found it by ourselves! Be prepared for a bumpy access road.

The villa had everything we needed, lots of good towels and smaller items such as liquid soap in kitchen and bathrooms which was very nice. It was spacious and spotless throughout the villa, the pool was just the right size and the grounds well kept. It was lovely eating at the outside table with the views of the sea and Mount Etna.

There was one issue which gave some minor problems; the house next door had dogs which barked a lot, including sometimes in the night. This seemed to set dogs barking at other locations and it did get annoying occasionally. However that is clearly something that Mario and Katy could do nothing about.

Overall we had a lovely stay, the villa is situated well to go sightseeing, facilities are good and the grounds and pool area offer a very comfortable option to just stay at the villa and relax.

Beautiful villa and very clean everything to hand and didn't need for anything as it was all provided, I would recommend anyone booking this villa you wont be disappointed. I would like say a special thanks to Mario and Ketty the owners, we had major problems finding our way to the villa our mistake and ended up god knows where but Mario came looking for us and he took us to the villa. Our son is going to miss the lovely pool as he used it every day from early morning and we will miss the relaxing atmosphere and tranquil villa and the area. Overall a special holiday with special accommodation and wonderful helpful owners who where only a text away if needed.
