“Wonderful Villa for Family Holiday in Sicily”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My family - 13 of us - enjoyed a wonderful stay at Villa le Zagare in July.
The villa itself is large and comfortable, and easily met the needs of our large family, from grandma and grandma, moms and dads, and grandchildren. Most bedrooms have air conditioning, though not everyone used it because the nights were so cool during our stay. Sleeping with the windows open does mean that you will hear the traffic from the nearby A20, but nobody in our family was bothered by it.
The grounds of the villa are spectacular, with fruit orchards, vegetable gardens, large grassy areas, tennis court, hot tub and pool. There was something for everyone. We especially loved eating our meals in the outdoor dining area.
Maurizio, the owner, went out of his way to make sure our stay was comfortable. He is a gracious and attentive host. He even arranged for a visit to the nearby Gaglio winery in Oliveri, a highlight of our stay!
Other highlights including having Maurizio's wife, Sonia, cook a huge, multi-course meal for us one night. And his father cooked dinner another night.
Perhaps most spectacular of all were the sunsets. Maurizio promised they would be different every night - and they were. We all enjoyed watching the sun set over the Mediterranean while relaxing with a glass of wine.
It was a holiday we will remember fondly. Many thanks to Maurizio and all the rest at Villa le Zagare!

“Two glorious weeks at Villa le Zagare”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have rented properties in many different regions of Italy and almost all have been satisfactory. However Villa le Zagare, the service we received and Maurizio who made our stay enjoyable and memorable are truly special. From the very first contact until we left after a two week stay, Maurizio was in constant contact, easy to reach and almost instantaneous in his response to our questions, etc.

There were 13 of our family who enjoyed the many advantages of the villa. As you consider staying at this villa you can have full confidence that the website photos are accurate and depict what you can expect in this rental.

The location of the villa is ideal near the autostrada which makes a number of locales very convenient: Taormina, Mt. Etna, Messina, Milazzo (where you can catch the ferry or hydrofoil to the Aeolian Islands) the ferry at Messina connecting to the mainland, Catania with its airport and many other interesting spots in Sicily.

The villa itself has attractions galore: magnificent swimming pool, basketball and tennis court, plenty of room within the villa with 6 bedrooms, large living and dining room and very attractive outdoor covered eating area. And the sunsets are magnificent.

You'll find that Maurizio (and his father and uncle) are wonderful warm people who are easy to contact for information and assistance. Maurizio's wife Sonia prepared a magnificent meal at the villa that afforded the chance for all who wish to help prepare the more than abundant and delicious meal.

We had a great two weeks!

“Wonderful villa with an amazing garden”
Reviewed 24 October 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were a party of 9 adults and 3 children who rented the villa to celebrate a family occasion. Upon arrival at the house, we were taken by the beautiful surroundings! The house is beautiful, gives a grand and rustic impression. The six bedrooms are very spacious and tastefully decorated. There is plenty of storage space in each room. The living room is large and there is both WiFi, computer and a large flat-screen TV. In short, the images on the homeaway site is entirely fair of the house, both in terms of condition and atmosphere! But what is the villa's large advantage is clearly the garden! The house sits up on a hill and has a fantastic view of the sea - we were stunned several evenings of the beautiful sunset! The garden is well maintained and there are all sorts of fruit trees such as oranges, grapefruit, peaches, figs, grapes, etc., that are ready to be picked depending on the season. We were shown around by both Maurizio and his father, who shared with us what the garden had to offer. We have probably never tasted such delicious tomatoes! The pool was also very tidy and clean, as well as the jacuzzi, which was nice to use in the evenings! The tennis court was used extensively. The house offers several terraces and has several different outdoor furniture, which gave the opportunity to be alone despite a large company. The large outdoor table placed under a roof was perfect for dining and we sat easily 12 people together.

Maurizio was very dedicated and keen that our stay would be as good as possible! He arranged several different daytrips for us. We also let Maurizio arrange for catering to the house one evening, something we all appreciated! The food was delicious!

Near the villa is a bar / ice cream parlor / restaurant, where we frequently purchased fresh breakfast breads, cakes and wonderfully delicious ice cream. The beach below the house was very nice, not in any way encumbered by tourists. The water was clean and clear! A supermarket is also nearby.

This place is definitely a gem for those seeking unspoilt countryside and relaxation away from the obvious tourist areas (which, however, are within easy reach if you want). It's clear that this villa has a special meaning for Maurizio and his family and we are very happy that we chose this place for our vacation! We hope to soon return to this beautiful place and explore more of Sicily! We give our best recommendations to this villa!
