Stunning Location and Villa

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was superb. Matilde was a fantastic hostess. She gave perfect directions to the villa and met us on arrival ( we arrived 11pm) with supplies as it was too late to get anything in the shops. There wasnt a washing machine with the apartment but she came during the week and actually washed and hung out the clothes for us. very much appreciated. All reviews mention the view and it was indeed spectacular. Catania twinkling during the night and mount Etna in all her glory during the day. The pool was spotless as was the apartment. Everything that you would need was there. Sleeps 6 in bedrooms and there is a couch that converts to a bed in the sitting room too.The location was very peacfull so if you are looking for a buzzing night life you are in the wrong place. The nearest beach is Agnone Bagni and it is a drive away. Here you will find a beach bar/coffee/icecream hut, Also there is a hotel but this does not serve food until late in the evening. The nearest supermarket for supplies is in Agusta, which again is a bit of a drive. Syracusa is well worth a visit too. Over all we enjoyed our stay, it was very relaxing and Matilde was very helpful. Thank you very much.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed (2 couples) for one week in this wonderful villa which stays

in a closed, gated area between Catania and Siracusa. The area itself

was a bit quiet in this period (early May) so car rental is necessary -

big supermarket or restaurants are in a near villages (15min drive).


villa is a bit old fashioned (in a lovely way) but fully comfortable (3

bedrooms + living room) and with all the facilities you need. The

garden is fantastic. The overview to Catania and Etna, the sea just

right below you with 20-30 meters and the huge sea water pool (10x4

meter, the deep in half of it is more then 2m!), the flowers... it

cannot represented in any photo. We loved it and it was truly hard to

motivate us for leaving it to visit the Sicily sightseeings. The weather

was also perfect (sunshine with 25+ degree) we were able to use the

pool also.

The owner Mathilde was a great host for us, helping in

any question and welcomed us with some foods/drinks in the fridge on our

arrival. More than perfect.

This closed area has own rocky seasides

(3-5 min walks from the villa) but with 5 min drive you can reach the

sandy beaches also. But I would suggest to stay as much as you can in

this beautiful garden, there is everything what you need for relaxation.

Great !

  • 5 of 5

"Family of three people were resting 2 weeks in late September in Sicily. Villa " Umberto " is a very pleasant place. Everything you need is here to stay. The pictures on the website are true. The mistress , Mathilde , is very friendly and helpful person, pleasant to talk to. Everything is pleasing to the eye , and the view from the windows of Mount Etna and the sea , and the blooming area villa. Large swimming pool with sea water. It is cleaned periodically. There is a great gas grill outside. Nearby you can buy fresh fish, which is great to roast on the grill. The big sandy beach is just 5 km far by a car. There is a fish restaurant on the beach . Close and delicious. I especially want to note how we were met. It was very pleasant when the hostess took care of the contents of a refrigerator, because usually all the way get tired and go to the store difficult. There was everything starting from the sauce , spaghetti, milk to Sicilian desserts and even cake and coffee and beer. So we have not seen anywhere before. Loved it , would gladly recommend to visit the Sicilian Villa Umberto.

The car is required, walk only on the territory of the village . I hope for own traveling it is understandable."

"The most important of the senses in this hospitable House: a complete delight! Very pleasant and comfortable home has everything you need! Lovely terrace with view Etna and a delightful swimming pool with sea water! We regret that there were only five days in this paradise!!! Matilda, thanks so much for a wonderful vacation in Sicily.

Casa cinque stelle!

  • 5 of 5

The best part of our stay in Sicily was meeting the delightful owner, Matilde and her beautiful home with panoramic views of mount Etna. You feel as if you are on a cruise ship because you are so close to the sea. We would highly recommend this wonderful home.
