    I would give it 10 stars if I could. Hard to know which was best - the house or the host, Danielle. First, the house. It is a Sicilian escape and absolutely beautiful. It is listed as being able to sleep 18 - which it could -but don't shy away from this house if you have a smaller group. We stayed there with another couple - just 4 of us. It was relaxing, warm and inviting. There are beautiful terraces and a pool - which we couldn't use (too cold - visited in January). My recommendation is to add some days on to your trip just to enjoy the house and setting. It has a wonderful kitchen, we cooked often. The kitchen has a wood oven, that Danielle had lit for us when we arrived. If you ask in advance, she can get someone to come and make pizzas! We even enjoyed a movie one night in their home theater. We strolled on the grounds, enjoying the orange and lemon tree orchard. Danielle - we haven't ever had a better host and we have been using VRBO since 2006. She sent us great links on where to shop and sites to see. She answered questions quickly and the house was set up very warmly and invitingly (chocolates and waters in each room). The area - this is a great site for day trips to Taormina with its Greek Theater, Mt Etna, Syracuse and Catania. We plan on coming back and staying longer.

    What an amazing property! Antonio and his mother welcomed us with beautiful local cakes, cheeses, bread, and fruit, and gave us a wonderful tour of the house. It is a magical place to stay. Very close to groceries and other shopping, the kitchen is well supplied and everything works perfectly. There is lots of hot water, and the wifi is strong throughout the property. The estate is a marvel, and even though we didn't swim (we managed to be there during a stormy few days), the pool area is gorgeous. We highly recommend the Villa Castiglione!
