we will definitely come back in summer time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the property for a week with our friends - three families with children. So we also rented the apartment below the villa. This was our third family holidays in Sicily and, we should admit, that the villa, garden and sea views were the best so far. The villa itself is convenient, spacious and with thousand of sweet touches which turns the villa into the sweet home. The kitchen needs some special evaluation - you simply can't resist the desire to cook there. With everyday fish market just a couple of kilometres away, with fresh vegetables and fruits sold almost everywhere - anyone could feel being the chef there.

The beach is sandy (which is quite a rare thing in Sicily), the sea view from terrace is extraordinary. The only thing we wish we could have made different - invite the chef for cooking classes not the last day of our stay but earlier. She prepared heaps of delicious food from "frutti di mare" which could not have beed eaten within one dinner. This was also extraordinary experience arranged by the manager of the property Bozena - intelligent and always helpful lady.

A great property that is hard to leave.

  • 5 of 5

This property more than lived up to our expectations. The property is beautiful and well maintained. The photographs on the website do not do it justice. Our party of six enjoyed our four weeks here. There are plenty of interesting places to visit within an easy drive from Marina di Ragusa. If you are a Commissario Montalbano fan, you can visit all of the sites used in the Italian film series. In addition there are several World Heritage sites within a reasonable drive from the villa.

Sally, the owner, was easy to deal with and Bo, her representative, did all she could to make our stay wonderful. From being our guide for a day, arranging a cooking lesson for us, to handling a few small problems, she was always ready to help. Her restaurant recommendations were very helpful.

Our visit, though nearly a month long, was not long enough. We hated to leave the villa and that part of Sicily. If we return to Sicily, we will do our best to stay at Villa Chiara.

beautiful time!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was absolutely beautiful and we had such a great time! Everything we needed was in walking distance; the beach, food store, town, and bus station. It was perfect for our stay and really made it a wonderful vacation!

Fantastica

  • 5 of 5

Descriverla è molto difficile in quanto non manca nulla ! Location fantastica, la villa tenuta benissimo e dotata di ogni confort...difficilmente si può trovare un difetto. Fantastica la vista a mare, e poi è tutto come nelle foto. La consiglierei a chiunque. Una nota di merito a Bozena veramente gentile e sempre disponibile.
