Our family had a lovely week in Sicily. The house was a great base to experience both the historical and nature sights in the area and then return back to the bbq, pool and terrace . Very quiet and peaceful spot.
Lovely villa in a great location.
We had a fantastic holiday here, the villa was lovely and very well equipped with air conditioning in each room. The swimming pool was perfect for our three children aged 10, 8 & 3. This has been the first holiday we could truly relax with the children by a swimming pool. The villa is in a great location with Avola only 15mins drive away. It had a lovely beach (Pantanello) and it was here we spent our time when not by the pool as we were very lucky with the weather! In Avola there is plenty of choice for eating out in the evenings and a couple of supermarkets. The owner and his family were very helpful and when we arrived in Sicily they met us in Avola, showed us to a supermarket & waited for us to do our shopping before we followed them up the mountain to the villa. I would definitely recommend this villa and location and we will certainly be returning!
This is a well situated property with beautiful views and gardens
We had a lovely week in May in the villa with my parents. It's well equipped and has a lovely pool and gardens. It's secluded and highly recommend
Lovely, very comfortable villa tucked away in the hills
We had an excellent week staying at Ignazio's lovely villa. The house is perfect for visiting the south eastern corner of Sicily. Our week was packed with activities - highlights were a couple of visits to beautiful Syracuse, walking in the Cava Grande di Cassibile gorge just five minutes from the house, birdwatching in Vendicari and a couple of other local nature reserves, a trip to Noto, and a visit to the necropolis at Pantalica, which was a bit of a drive but absolutely worth it. The house was ideal for the four of us (two adults and two children). It's beautifully decorated and well equipped, with plenty of space of lots of very welcome practical touches - some lilos for the pool, loads of comfortable seating outside, facilities to wash clothes and hang them to dry etc.
We visited in early April and wondered if it was worth having a house with a pool - but although the water was a bit chilly for us, the kids had brought their wetsuits and absolutely loved it. If we'd visited later in the summer we would have made even more use of the lovely outside space, which is beautifully lit in the evenings. The house is quite cool - ideal for summer, but at this time of year, pack jumpers and socks if you don't want to put the heating on!
We had a lovely meal at the agriturismo, but otherwise ate in (there's a Lidl just down the road, but the Interspar slightly further away is worth the drive - much nicer!). As others have said, it's essential to have a car here - and you soon get used to the bendy drive up to the house - we found it took about 15 minutes down to the main road.
Thanks for a lovely holiday, and we would definitely recommend the house to anyone looking to stay in this area.
Cara Catherina, é stato un piacere averti ospite nella nostra villa. Siete stati gentili, ordinati e puliti. Consigliamo vivamente agli altri proprietari la tua famiglia.
A perfect place to stay
We had a wonderful week staying here. The villa is very well equiped and comfortable. The high point for us was the terrace and swimming pool. It was such a treat to sit out on the terrace with the beautiful view surrounded by the lovely garden. We always looked forward to coming back to it after a trip out
It is a great area to stay in with so much to do. Favourite things for us were the Cavagrande, Ragusa, Syracuse, Mount Etna and a boat trip from Marzamemi
This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed!
Great garden and pool, ideal for families
We stayed here in April 2017. The pool and garden is great for young children, and they loved it. Bedrooms are comfortable and everything was provided. The entire house is very clean and the kitchen is well equipped though only a small oven - which we didn't use as we tended to eat out. There is a really nice outdoor terrace too.
The view if great but you do have a long (but nice) drive up the mountain and while it's a very secure and private place there are no conveniences to walk to, though we had an amazing meal at Turismo Rurale Avola Antica a 5 minute drive away. It's a good base for Noto, Syracuse, the Cava Grande, Vendicari and Modica and the drive to Akrai was one of my favourite trips.
We saw plenty of the owner Ignazio so if you have a problem he is around. We don't speak Italian but we managed OK, though I think we had a few mix ups but that's to be expected.

Another stop is located in Sicily at Palermo, which is the airport at Punta Raisi, about 250 km in both airports there is the possibility of renting a car or take a bus to reach the goal.
