The Sicily region
Sicily is the land of sun, sea and history. The land where the sky is perennially the colour of sapphire, the domain of dolphin and swordfish. The land where you can find natural settings for sport and relaxations. The land where you can feel history simply looking into the eyes of locals, living witnesses of the past dominations.
In Sicily climate oscillates between 15°C (January) and 40°C, and sometimes more, in July-August.
Caltagirone is renowned worldwide for its famous hand-painted ceramics. The whole architecture of the town is worth a visit. Undoubtedly the biggest attraction is the famous steps of Santa Maria del Monte, composed of 102 steps whose risers are covered with ceramic tiles painted by hand. Also, from here you can reach important places from the cultural point of view, such as Morgantina, the Villa Romana del Casale, Piazza Armerina, the museum of Aidone where has recently returned where the famous Goddess of Morgantina.

"Very nice place with exceptional panorama"
Villa with all the comfort and well decorated. A lot of space, fully equipped. Owners are living in the same house, but have totally separate area (and were visible only the last day for the goodbye).
The garden and outdoor equipment (BBQ, table, Gazebo, ...) is perfect.
The swimming pool is great, with enough sunbeds and great panorama. We were there with the family with 3 children (13, 10, 8 years).

"This place certainly has the wow factor!"
Its not much to see from the road but i can assure you that when you come through the gated entrance and drive down to the pool area, WOW!!. On arrival at the villa we had a warm and welcoming greeting from Guiseppe Recupero and his lovely wife.
We were shown the views and pool area which are stunning. The pool was warm and inviting as the temperatue was around 38c when we arrived. From there we were shown a beautiful out building set beside the terrace that had lovely views when the sun was just too hot.
The real WOW factor was when we were guided through the main house. When you see the main living area for the first time with its high ceilings and a galleried sitting area above it is without doubt stunning. We were led up the marble staircase to the bedroom and bathroom areas which again were stunning. Aircon was only needed in the bedrooms at night. And the living area was a comfortable temperature with the windows open in the evening.
This is more of a week away from it holiday, we only ventured out a couple of times to the supermarket which is about 2 km away. If you like ceramics you must climb the steps at a town that slips my mind as i write this.
If you want a place to just chill in luxury then this is it.
Thank you so much Peppe and hope to see you next year.
