Fantastic group stay
We had a fantastic group stay at the villa that comfortably accommodated for a group of 12 adults. The facilities and environment were beautiful and well enjoyed by our group.
The house team and manager were very welcoming and accommodated most of our needs. We were quite disappointed to lose our security deposit due to some stains on the terracotta tiles which were the flooring for all the communal outdoor cooking and dining areas. We were not warned of the risk or advised of the caution needed when cooking and eating in these areas which led to a disappointing outcome. It would be helpful for future guests if this information was included in the check-in process.
All in all, we had a marvellous stay and will remember our group holiday at the villa very fondly.
Beautiful villa well located to explore the area.
Our extended family of 9 stayed her for a week in July. The views from the grounds are beautiful and we were very surprised by the amount of space you have outside with plenty of room to sit in the shade, swim and sunbathe. We also enjoyed a game of football with Etna as our bsckdrop!
All the bedrooms are a good size with their own bathroom.
Monica was very welcoming and helpful and a real star.
We booked Maria to cook for us one evening which was fantastic. As well as amazing food, Maria was so friendly.
Nearby we visited Taormina, Isla Bella and Naxos which are all lovely but very very busy. We loved Castelmola as very peaceful and Ragusa.
The only things I can suggest in terms of improvement would be a better bbq (in size and weight); a larger kettle and some more sun loungers.
Would definitely recommend for a group of friends or family.
Excellent villa in a beautiful location with views of Etna across the vineyard from the garden. Swimming pool well used and shaded outdoor table and chairs welcome in the heat. Accommodation was spacious and clean, although beds somewhat hard, and the kitchen had limited equipment. Easy walk to village, which had many ice-cream shops to the delight of our children and also simple shops and restaurants. Many things to do in the area including visiting Taormina, Mount Etna, River gorge and beaches/boat trips. Monica was an excellent manager - very friendly and efficient, and the meal cooked by Maria for us was amazing. I think it should be made clear on the owners direct website that air-conditioning is not included in the price of the villa and it is an extra that needs to be paid -the amount requested did seem somewhat excessive to us. Overall though we had a great holiday and would recommend this villa.
Many thanks for the review. Mattresses are branded Simmons (one of the best in the world). We are very anxious about the confort of our guests. Air conditioning is an extra as clearly stated in the rental agreement that you approved when you finalized the booking. The house is a big house and air conditioning is an high cost and we do not want to limit the use of it. I really hope to see you and your adorable family group in the property soon. Thanks again G.

One of my best holidays ever
Beautiful location, just in front of the Etna vulcan.
The resort is surrounded by vignards and fruit trees, very relaxing.
A lot of care and attention to details. The rooms are spacious and clean.
The best part is the assistance from the staff: friendly and professional at all times.
I recommend the "granita" and pasta alla norma. Fantastic!
Many thanks for the wonderful review ! Please come back again !!
Wonderful villa, wonderful hospitality!
We stayed at Villa Etna for one week at the end of August/beginning of September. We had the most wonderful time. Monica, the housekeeper, gave us such a warm welcome and was brilliant throughout. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she was very knowledgeable about the local area, beaches, places to eat and visit. The villa itself was very spacious and immaculate. We had everything we needed. The pool was perfect, very clean and a lovely temperature. The location was brilliant, close to amenities and a very short drive from the beach, but because of the setting it felt as though it was the perfect rural retreat. Our two boys, aged 7 and 8 years summed it up as "the best holiday ever!". Thank you very much. We hope to return next year.
