We stayed in the villa for a week in July. Nanni and Lidia were very efficient in arranging for our arrival and couldn't have been friendlier and nicer, providing information on local restaurants and facilities as well as showing us around the villa. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa itself was lovely, in an excellent position with views of Etna (with red lava flows visible at night from a safe distance during our stay) and a gorgeous and huge garden. We were extremely comfortable during our week which the air conditioning in the main bedroom and kitchen certainly contributed to. Acireale was very close and it was easy to get onto the autostrada to go further afield. We managed trips to Taormina, Ragusa, Noto, Piazza Armerina and the towns around Etna and could have easily done more if the villa and it's garden had not persuaded us to stay put on some days. For a quiet, comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable villa, this one is hard to beat. Leaving was as efficient and friendly as arriving and we would have no hesitation in recommending this property and indeed will return ourselves in the future.
