This review is very long overdue but I wanted to show the description of this villa to a friend and I thought I really owed Francesco and Maria one for a wonderful vacation we had with friends and young children. It is a charming old villa in an incredibly beautiful and large garden, with views of the Etna on one side, and the sea and Taormina on the other. It was an experience of a lifetime to be watching an erupting Etna at night from the back terrace. Francesco and Maria are very kind and helpful and the maid service is really handy when you have a large party to clean up after.

"Lovely villa, very friendly service"
With our family of 6 adults and 6 children, age 0-13 we had a lovely stay in the villa of Fransesco and Maria. The villa has classic charm, large beautiful gardens with several terraces and a great pool. The pool is in a bit secluded area (though not completely fenced) which made the garden suitable to play in for the children. Its classic charm includes basic bathroom facilities but everything was very clean. The mandatory daily housekeeping by Rosaria is worth every penny and on request she made us a lovely dinner one evening. Maria would come in for tips on trips in the region. The owners are proud of their since long family villa, and rightly so.

"Lovely Villa with a beautiful garden"
"We were a large family group with ages ranging from 18 - 67. The villa is very comfortable with air conditioning in the bedrooms. There is a wonderful house keeper who cleans and washes the guests clothes Monday - Friday. She will also cook a traditional meal, which we had one evening and it was delicious. The villa garden is large and very beautiful with a large swimming pool. The owners are friendly and helpful. We did a lot of travelling around and Syracuse, Piazza Armerina and Taormina are easy to reach but we also got out to Agrigento and Ragussa and many other places in a day but with an early start. The roads are good. The owners also found us a very good guide for an Etna trip."

"Dear Maria and Francesco,
Unfortunately our vacation has now ended but we will always have fond memories of our week at your delightful home. Thank you for your kind hospitality and assistance in finding our way around your beautiful countryside. We were enchanted with the spectacular show put on by Etna. Attached is a photo I took from our bedroom window.

About the Owner
In the villa “Il giardino di Isabella” that belongs to my family from generations I've been living with my wife and three children for many years. In 1990 our sons went out from Sicily for specialization studies, and I embarked on a new activity in northern Italy, in the tourist sector. Ten years after I decided to come back and keep on my work at home. I love Sicily and I hope that many people discover its glamour, staying in my house.
