“Great stay in beautiful surroundings with friendly hosts at very good value” We came as a family of five and had a great week, lots of interesting places to go, great clima for the time of year (almost too warm at the coast) lots of good advice on where to go, nice interior and exterior, great pool and wonderfull view of Etna. Very nice and helpful host family made the stay even better.
My partner proposed on the terrace one evening, Etna was booming in the distance, what more can I say...!
Has to be one of the most private and magical places I've ever stayed. Spotlessly clean and a very friendly check in with Rosalba. It is in a fantastic location, the local village has everything you need. …
Villa Segreta - Beautiful villa in Sicily
Lovely Villa in a beautiful setting
We had a lovely time at Villa Segreta. The setting is absolutely idyllic and the property itself, which is in an old Sicilian Farmhouse was clean and well maintained. Stunning views of Etna, particularly from the pool and from the pizza oven terrace. April in Sicily is wonderful and the countryside around the villa was full of wild flowers and wildlife - we found porcupine quills which was very exciting. We also enjoyed making pizza in the pizza oven. Beds were comfortable and it is dead silent at night. Benson the caretaker was very polite although he was really only supposed to be there for key handovers, he was more than happy to help when we needed (good idea to tip him as it is customary and makes a world of difference - we gave him 20 Euro when we arrived) All in all very nice and for the money excellent value. …
Awesome romantic getaway for couples
We enjoyed our 2 week trip to this house a lot and absolutely recommend it to anyone who searches for the perfect relaxation spot while enjoying the life of sicily.
The house is located 10 min drive north of Belpasso. Belpasso itself is a nice small town with lots of restaurants and most importantly with very few tourists. So you can really enjoy the authentic Sicily lifestyle. Close to the house is a supermarket and a few hundred metres up the road is a very good restaurant. You can hardly hear the road and the only thing you may hear at night are some dogs. So it is a really quiet location.
Almost everything has been said about the house itself here. It is in a very good and perfectly clean condition. Inside and outside has been taken care of perfectly - including the pool and the garden. We used the kitchen quite a lot to cook. All the basics for good cooking are here. You may want to bring your favorite knifes from home if you are an ambitious cook.
One of the best features of the house is its owner: Salvatore. He is the best host you can imagine. He took us from Belpasso to the house, where he already filled up the fridge because we arrived on a sunday. When our car got stuck on one of the roads in the middle of the night, he was there to help us and called his friends. Plus he is a really nice person who will make you feel comfortable right away.
Bottom line: perfect getaway for any couple who wants to experience the real Sicily while enjoying the silence and romance of a house on the mount Etna. …
