Very interesting place but not completely clean

  • 4 of 5

The stay was in a very large part of a huge mansion with many interesting things, including an extraordinary dark wooden spiral staircase, three floors, multiple decks, ornate decor, a wine cellar with old wine bottles going back to 1920, at least 6 bedrooms, and enough nooks and crannies such that if you ever played hide and seek here, you probably would give up trying to find the person. However, the kitchen on the second floor (there was also one on the third) was not clean - the sink was dirty and ants were running around in the utensils drawer, and one of the showers was very slow to drain (a plumber was called and it could be fixed by now). The floors were also not very clean and would not be appropriate for small children crawling around. But if you are interested in fine decor and an elaborate house to study, this place will keep you engaged.

Fantastic, unbelievable views!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful big home with fantastic views. We booked with sicily discovery and GIULIANA was our contact. She was so helpful with everything we wanted to do. The house has a small kitchen and two bedrooms with bath on third floor. The second floor houses the same with two dinning rooms. Lots and lots of outdoor living. The first floor we never used. They have clean hot tub but we did not use it. The location needs a car. Very good launch point to tairmina and Catania. Very small fishing village close by that was charming. Kitchen appointed well except for some cooking utensils with I informed them of. Also the washer was not hooked up. They may do that soon. I would come back to this place again. We had a very memorable time. The owners were wonderful and very sweet. There is a very good restaurant within walking distance. Thanks again for making our trip so special.

Belle villa cependant, dans laquelle on a l'impression de camper...

  • 3 of 5

A améliorer:

- 1 seul torchon en cuisine

-absence de verres à vin

-Il manque beaucoup d'articles de cuisine pour recevoir 9-12 personnes

-ampoules manquantes sur de nombreuses lampes

-absence de verres à eau de taille correcte

-certaines chambres et salles de bain ne sont quasiment pas meublées (étagères, porte-serviettes)

-pas de micro-ondes

-pas de bouilloire électrique

Globalement, l'équipement est chiche.

Par ailleurs, tres belles vues, maison spacieuse et emplacement trés bien.
