One of my best holidays ever

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful villa, wonderful hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

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.

A great holiday in a lovely house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Villa Etna! The house is very well divided internally, well maintained and really well equipped! The air conditioning is very efficient, as it needs to be to cope with the intense heat one can experience in Sicily! The garden is large and there is an extensive covered area where one can take refuge from the hot sun as well as dine al fresco. From there the view of Mount Etna is stunning! Although the property is very close to the village, it feels quite remote. It is very quiet! The swimming pool was a huge attraction to our children, and much fun was had there! Everything is in perfect working order in the house, except for the wi-fi which is at times problematic, the signal is at times very weak. I understand the owner will be doing something about that! The manager is very attentive and efficient and will resolve any problems that can occur with great speed, and there is a cook for an outstanding Sicilian food experience (at extra cost). The surrounding area is very beautiful, with lots to do. We found a couple of beautiful beaches (don’t miss Lido dal Pirata). It is worth making sure you have proper instructions as to the location of the property and not just follow the satnav, I got totally lost trying to find it when we first arrived!

Wonderfull stay at a little paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at the beautiful Villa Etna with a private pool, shaded and tasteful terrace, perfumed scent of the lemon trees nearby and a magnificent view of the real Etna. We also enjoyed very much the warm hospitality of Gabriele and Monica.

Perfect accommodations for a great week in Sicily.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was comfortable, clean, and well-maintained. The en suite arrangement was ideal for our large group (12 adults), with inviting indoor and outdoor common spaces for meals or just hanging out and cozy bed/bath combos that were just right at other times. We had two dinners al fresco on the spacious patio, which was a real treat. The pool was another a big plus, especially when the weather got hot. A prime location as well--close enough to Taormina to enjoy the town's amenities and yet far enough way to keep the throngs at bay. I would definitely recommend this property to any large group planning a vacation in the area.
