About MARIA G.
This villa is very important for my family. As a child, my husband used to play with his friends in this "palmento" (the place where wine grapes are pressed). As an adult he built our house around this "palmento". In this garden, we also celebrated our wedding. Here our children are born and raised. In this house we lived unforgettable moments with our friends, we enjoyed the pool, garden and the barbeque. Now our children are studying away and we decided to move into town.
MARIA G. purchased this Villa in 1980

A spacious villa with beautiful grounds between Mt. Etna and the Ionian Sea.
This beautiful villa is built around the stunning ancient wine press which takes up the back of the house, incorporating the gym area. We were five adults and the two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms were great, our bedroom being huge with a daybed, desk and armchair. The third bedroom was small with two single beds but without an ensuite. In fact, there was not a third bathroom at all, although the villa description states 3 bathrooms and a separate wc. There was a separate wc which was next to the utility room on the far side of the villa.Unfortunately, this was quite a trek at night, negotiating the steps from the living room. We specifically searched for a place with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The description needs looking at as it is misleading. After saying that we were so pleased with our choice for the two weeks. The living room with 3 separate seating areas was fantastic, reading, tv and computers all separate. The pool and the outside dining area were a real treat. The rustic kitchen had all the amenities you needed with a spacious fridge and full sized dishwasher. We did not know what to expect of Sicily but you could have been anywhere once the automatic gates closed behind you. It was like a different world. We visited most of the resorts and attractions along the east coast of Sicily and it was ideal being close to the coast and only a few minutes from the autostrada. We would thoroughly recommend the villa and Maria to everybody
Dear Gary, first of all thank you for the nice words about my house. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding but homeaway considers the bathroom as a shower in the pool, among other things in the description of the services and in the photos there is never talk of 3 bathrooms. I'm sorry but it's not my intention to forge the guests. I wish you the best. Maria
Super Villa - Amazing Pool!
We just returned from 2 weeks at this glorious villa. It was perfect for our chill-out holiday, with ample space for the 4 of us. A fully equipped kitchen, free wifi, SkyTV and a pool that was the star of the show. It was huge! We spent most of the time in it as it was so hot. It was clean and surprisingly warm, even though it was not heated.
There were supermarkets nearby for all your food (cheap Prosecco!). We ventured out to the Etnaland water park, which was worth a visit (just remember your flip-flops because the ground is hot!)
All in all a wonderful family break at a brilliant villa! Many thanks to Maria (host) and her son for all their valuable information on the area.
Amazing house, beautiful pool
Absolutely beautiful house right beneath Mt Etna, perfect for our family of six! Lovely local restaurants, great pizza. We spent all our time by the amazing pool, it is massive with plenty of sun chairs. The house has a lovely rustic feel and all the facilities we could have wanted. Maria was very helpful, and had fruit and wine waiting for us on arrival.
Rustic villa with large pool and garden
Maria, the owner, was very helpful from the time i booked and throughout our stay. There was huge bowl of cherries and bottle of wine to greet us as well as some other provisions.
The villa is very spacious and well equipped, but a little bit "tired". (This was possibly more noticeable to us as we were very unlucky with weather and spent more time inside house than expected!)
It is in a convenient location for trips out and local shops within walking distance - just be careful of the busy road and Sicilian drivers as few pavements! The house is approached through an electric gate and set back from road so there is no traffic noise.
The garden is large too although hedges near house and paths a little overgrown.
Maria is very responsive - there was an unexpected and unpredictable problem on our last day and Maria got people round to fix it in a very fast time - impressive!
Beautiful villa and amazing host
The villa itself and the grounds are beautiful. Behind closed gates you are secluded and safe under the gaze of Mount Etna on one side and the see and a view of Italy to the other. Maria is an unbelievable host who made sure everything we needed we had. She even bought us a stair gate as we have a two year old. Maria is responsive, friendly and extremely helpful and everything we asked for she made sure we were 100% happy. A privilege to stay in such a beautiful and classic home, thank you so much Maria x
