Excellent family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3 families with young children and we have spent two weeks in this villa. It was a wonderful overall experience.

First of all, we have appreciated the owner's help in setting up the rooms (bed configuration) and he has provided a lot of information on the setup. Unlike other places where we have been, he was very proactive in communicating with us upfront.

Upon arrival, he waited for us at a crossroad, despite the late hour and drove us to the villa. We found there a good welcome package that was very helpful until we did the shopping the next day.

The owner was very helpful in providing orientation and advice; he made some good recommendations in regard to places to see, how to park, safety advice and many others. He has even helped us during our stay with reservations at restaurants, which turned out to be excellent choices.

As for the villa and the location, I totally subscribe to Laurie B.'s observations, so I will not repeat that.

We totally recommend booking that place for a family/large group vacation.

Owner's Response: I want to really thank all of you becouse we had a very good relationship that was more "from friend to friend" than "from host to host". I hope that we will meet one more time some day in the future and maybe not here but in your country that i am sure it's another beautiful place to visit. thanks a lot and....see you soon!

The property is very clea...

  • 5 of 5

The property is very clean and tidy located in a quiet village mostly full of summer villas. The village itself, Avola Antica, is located 15 minutes out of Avola up a steep windy road but the views from the village are fantastic. The village also has a pizzaria, which is very handy. This location is very central for exploring south east Sicily or if you wish less than half an hour from excellent beaches. The owners of the villa were fantastic, helping us on many occasions and on our arrival, which was in the evening had been very kind and placed some food provisions in the fridge for us. I would definitely recommend this property to others.

superbes vacances dans cette maison très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Les propriétaires de cette maison sont très très accueillants! ils nous ont accompagnés jusqu'à la maison.

La maison est perchée sur les hauteurs d'avola antica à environ 20 min en voiture du bord de mer. C'est un endroit très calme et frais! ce qui est très agréable avec la chaleur..

La maison est très grande, les chambres très spacieuses et le jardin aussi.

Maison parfaite à plusieurs familles car le haut et le bas sont parfaitement séparés et il y a beaucoup de salles de bain ce qui est un atout majeur.

De très belles plages et des villages magnifiques sont à visiter dans cet endroit de la Sicile.

merci encore aux propriétaires.

Bella casa e proprietario gentilissimo

  • 5 of 5

Casa grande e spaziosa, ben organizzata e adatta a famiglie con bambini. La posizione a 400/500 sul livello de mare regala serate fresche nell’estate siciliana. Il proprietario è venuto incontro alle nostre necessità dimostrandosi un una persona seria e disponibile. Consigliata!!

Un angolo di tranquillità a 10 minuti dal mare

  • 5 of 5

La casa è bella, fresca, accogliente, adeguatamente attrezzata e MOLTO meglio di come si presenta nelle fotografie. Io, la mia famiglia e i miei amici (13 persone in tutto), abbiamo trascorso un periodo veramente magico! Da segnalare la gentilezza, la cortesia e la grande disponibilità del proprietario, una persona veramente per bene.

Owner's Response: La prima cosa che mi viene in mente ripensando al periodo che le famiglie della sig.a Raffaella hanno passato qui nella villa è che è stato veramente un grande piacere sedere a volte con tutti loro per delle conversazioni su argomenti semplici o argomenti importanti. E' successo non poche volte e mi sembrava di conoscerli da una vita intera. Spero di cuore, veramente, di incontrarli di nuovo.
