“Lovely villa, in a great area of Sicily!”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were are group of 6 couples who have been friends for many years. Having been to Sicily many times, I searched for an area that we had not been to before and found Villa Antica Aia, which seemed very suitable, we were not disappointed!

The villa, pool and gardens are super, set in a quiet secluded area, but not too far from the local town and beach. The 6 lovely, spacious, stylish on-suite bedrooms are all very comfortable.

The owner Oriana, kindly made us home made local dishes to start our holiday, and kept in contact throughout our stay in case we needed any help or advise.

Of course the weather in June was perfect!

Very very enjoyable, thanks very much Oriana!!

“Spacious villa with lovely garden.”
Reviewed 25 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a wonderful week staying in this villa with ten friends. We particularly enjoyed lounging in the garden and around the pool. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and there are lovely areas to sit and relax both inside and outside. Oriana and Michele made us very welcome and were very helpful. The nearest town, Scicli, is beautiful and well worth a visit, as is Noto and if you're willing to travel a bit further the mosaics at the Roman villa in Piazza Armerina are stunning and well worth the 2 hour drive.

“An excellent, well appointed property ideal for a family holiday away from the holiday hot spots.”
Reviewed 21 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed as a family group of 8 including 3 small children. The villa is well maintained and set in spacious gardens divided into 2 sections: one with a lawn and good sized swimming pool with diving board the other featuring swings and a small slide. A spacious covered veranda overlooks the lawn and pool with a purpose built BBQ to one side. There are 2 bedrooms and bathrooms at ground floor level and 4 bedrooms, 2 with en-suite and a separate bathroom.

The owners, Oriana and Michele, made us very welcome and were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. One highlight being a Scicilian meal that Oriana prepared for us and we ate with her and her family.

A car is essential as the villa is in a rural setting and there are no shops withiin walking distance. We ate very well buying meat and bread from a butcher and baker recommended by Oriana, fish from the fish market at Donnalucata and general suplies from the supermarket some 10 mins drive away. We visited the beaches at Sampieri,Cava D'Aliga and Pozzallo which were very nice and safe for children, but the garden and pool were really all we needed. Scicli with its Montalbano associations has plenty of restaurants and was only a 15 min drive away.

Oriana and Michele are in the process of installing solar panels and airconditioning and, as from mid-June, will be renting a second villa on the site with its own pool.

Thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Richings and their family for their friendness and kindness. It was a pleasure for my husband and me to let accommodate such a lovely family. The children were very happy to enjoy the swimming pool and the garden, and we also were pleased about that.
It was really plesant to know Richings's family and now we have some new friends in England. They also invited my family and me to reach them there! Thanks a lot!

“Gorgeous villa and the nicest owners!”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent a week at Villa Antica Aia at the end of May with another couple and our young children - 10 of us altogether. The villa itself is a beautiful and spacious stone building over a century old but tastefully renovated. It is super well equipped and the owners did some shopping prior to our arrival with some breakfast essentials and delicious local wine. The garden is very large and beautiful with mature plants, lavender, herb garden, mini kids playground (away from the outdoor dining area, which is great for the noise!) and of course a good sized and deep pool. In between baroque Scicli and the small fishing village/ beach resort of Sampieri, Antica Aia is very well located to visit this fascinating corner of Sicily - mainly the provinces of Ragusa and Siracusa but we did go as far as Etna. Above all the owners Oriana and Michele are incredibly welcoming people and even treated us to a delicious meal at the villa itself that felt just like having another couple of friends for dinner. Also, make sure you try the ricotta calda at the farm near by - Michele will guide you there.

Un grazie di cuore ad Adela per aver scritto una bella recensione per la mia casa ma non solo per questo.. lei e i suoi amici mi hanno permesso di conoscere il vero volto dell'amicizia con la A maiuscola. Un gruppo di amici affiatati tra loro, sempre allegri, in sintonia tra di loro, amichevoli e molto gentili. Ho avuto la possibilità di conoscerli durante una cena a casa mia ed è stata una piacevolissima serata tra amici, come se ci fossimo conosciuti da sempre!! Spero di rivedere ancora Adela e la sua bella "comitiva" come li ho definiti io!! A presto!!
