“Great accomodation in a fabulous setting”
We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing week here, the house had everything we needed, with a well equipped kitchen a comfortable beds. The owners were very welcoming, with a cold glass of prosecco offered as soon as we arrived! The family invited us to use their pizza oven and took us for an evening walk around the grounds. The children loved the pool and views of Etna.
“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.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your lovely review. Please come again
“Super Views of Etna”
A nice villa but some of the appliances were English so you need to take an adaptor, plus there was no washing machine and the tv and internet didn’t work, so a quick drive to an internet café or restaurant. Most evening restaurants open here at 8pm. The pool was fantastic with views of Etna. Great location Etna, but you need a car to get round. The wine upon arrival was nice. Unfortunately we did not get to meet the owners as they were away but they did have a gentlemen looking after the property. Each morning we were greeted by three dogs and a horse! We also looked after the animals for 3 days whilst the property was unattended. Snorkelling was excellent in Aci Costello.
“Stunning location, lovely accomodation, great pool with a view of Etna with very accomodating hosts”
The accomodation was classically Sicilian with a cool interior and had everything we needed, the pool was a very welcome sight especially to our 3 year old daughter who spent most of the week in it. The hosts were lovely and we felt completely at ease for the duration of our holiday. The surrounding area was beautifully tranquil with a view of Etna gently smouldering away, stunning local beaches and plenty of historic ruins. Oh, and the food is to die for! We shall return!
“A wonderful Villa in a simply stunning location”
A simply stunning little villa in a truly fantastic location. The pool area was great for relaxing and viewing Etna. The location was perfect both for exploring Etna and the beautiful cities of the East Coast. Save yourself a fortune-it is not that difficult to walk up Etna from the refuge takes about three hours going up and one hour coming down!!-we did it and we are both well over 60 . The chilled Prosecco served on our arrival was most welcome after a long drive on a very scenic route through the middle of the Island. It was different opening the front door in the morning to be greeted by two dogs and a horse! I would stay here again if visiting the area and have already recommended it to friends
“The best rental experience ever”
This was the best place we ever rented. The house is clean and nicely decorated, the kitchen has everything you need (even salt and olive oil :)). February nights were cold and we used the real fire place every evening. The view to the Etna mountain from upstairs is fantastic. The villa is nicely placed between places worth visiting. Would definitely stay there again if we decide to go to Sicily.
“A fantastic find, highly recommend”
After a delayed flight and issues with the hire car we were so glad to arrive at villa segreta. We had a couple of issues finding it, due to sicilys poor sign posting, however the owners were more than willing to meet us and show us the way! Weh we arrived at the villa, we felt so comforted, the fire was roaring, there was prosecco set out and the owners were more than willing to offer assistance. We arrived when all supermarkets had shut, however the welcome pack contained all that we needed to last us until the next day. We went to a nearby restaurant that appears to do pizzas on a Saturday, it was amazing! The location was great for us, amazing views, close to amenities and not too far to derive to the sites we wanted to go to. The owners were great and couldn't have been better hosts. I highly recommend villa segreta to anyone who is looking to travel around Sicily,but be away from the hustle and bustle of the big towns.
“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.
“Excellent villa, area and owners”
This is a great find with nothing too much trouble for the owners. Very well equipped villa with extra special touches. The pool is great and the furniture around it is lovely. We thourougly enjoyed our stay here in nice surrundings and plenty to do or just time to chill. lovely free range eggs supplied from the owners chickens. Supermarket 5 mins drive away and local eating places within walking distance. We had a lovely holiday and enjoyed every minute of it. We hope to be back!!
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your kind comments so glad you had a great holiday. It was a pleasure having you all stay. Hope to see you again.
“Paradise at Etna”
The house is situated very beautiful with a view to Etna. Because it is about 1.000 m. above sea level the temperature was a bit lower which one learn to appreciate if you are there in the summer where it can be very hot. Maria Smith and her husband Jason are exceptional kind and helpful. As danes with only poor skills in understanding and speaking italian it was a grat help for us that we could speak english with them. The kitchen in the house is well equipped
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, it was lovely meeting you both, hope we see you again soon.
