    Amazing! I have been reviewing villas for UK newspapers/magazines for nearly 30 years - this is by far the most beautiful villa I have ever stayed in. Like having a small boutique hotel to yourself. Thanks so much to Maurizio + the team

    Demain nous quitterons avec regrets ce magnifique domaine où nous avons vécu une semaine de rêve, en famille avec nos enfantés et petits-enfantés. Une maison accueillante et pleine de charme, une vue à couper le souffle, un jardin splendide, un espace piscine digne des villas romaines, et puis la Sicile avec son charme et son caractère! Merci à Maurizio, Germana et Rosanna qui nous ont si bien de nous soigner pendant cette semaine.

    Nous venons de passer un séjour de rêve en famille dans cette somptueuse propriété. La vue est époustouflante entre l'Etna d'un côté et la mer de l'autre, la piscine est juste incroyable, le jardin et le parc entretenu à la perfection, vous jouissez d'un calme et d'une sérénité sans égal. La villa vient d'être rénovée avec un gout parfait mixant l'ancien et le moderne , tout est beau , de qualité, du sol au plafond tout est parfait en passant par la vaisselle , le linge, le mobilier.... Nous avons été reçus comme des rois, beaucoup de petites attentions , des fruits, des boissons et un petit déjeuner étaient prévus , des sets de gel douche&shampoing dans chaque salle de bain et j'en oublie... La propriété était d'une propreté parfaite. Maurizio qui nous a accueilli et accompagné tout au long de notre séjour et d'une gentillesse extrême et très à l'écoute de nos moindres demandes. L' Agence Casa in Sicilia a été parfaite , personnel très réactif ,à l'écoute , je recommande vivement.
