This villa has stunning views and is in very tranquil surroundings. We very much enjoyed our stay here.
The outside area is fantastic, the pool is amazing, very spacious and with beautiful views. Outside there are plenty of seats umbrellas and lounges. The kids were so happy to find a ping-pong table. I loved waking up in the morning, going outside with a cup of tea and enjoying the tranquillity and the views before the rest of my family woke up.
Inside, the bedrooms are spacious. The only thing I would say on the negative side is that I found the mattress on the double bed much too hard, and this disturbed my sleep rather. The air-conditioning is in the main room, so it was still quite warm in the bedrooms. The main room is very spacious with a huge table and chairs, and the sofas are comfortable. We hardly used the TV. There was one English Channel (the news). The kitchen, although looks basic when you first see it, has everything that you need, and everything works well, so that was all good. Even a toaster (we don't always find those abroad).
The owner Nicoletta, was really friendly and very kindly provided us with an amazing amount of fruit (figs and grapes) to last us the whole holiday. They were delicious, thank you!
We did have a problem with the water pump going off overnight on the first night, which woke us up throughout the night. However, Nicoletta got this sorted very quickly the next day.
The drive is a very windy one, and I was quite pleased that I was not the driver. We definitely feel that you have to be a confident driver to come to Sicily in the first place (especially if you drive around Ortigia, like we did).
The beach nearby was very nice as well, and there is a cafe. Also, if you stay here you must go to the Quetzal restaurant, it is one of the best on the island, and has amazing views (and is one of the closest ones to you).
