Very nice house with all you need. Fantastic swimmingpool, stunning views, nice sorroundings and a very good service from Marco and his uncle Giuseppe. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice, clean and calm place to stay for the vacation.

Beautiful views and location !

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6, with 4 children aged 13,12,10 and 6 . The children really enjoyed using the pool every day and it was a spacious, well equipped villa. The spectacular views felt very luxurious and all for a very reasonable rental price. Lots of interesting places nearbye to visit or else just relax every day !

Beautiful villa with swimmingpool and stunning view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this gorgeous villa. It's exactly like the photos. It's got everything you need. Including a beautiful swimming pool and the beautiful view and sunsets. Marco was very helpful and so was his uncle as they helped us stay there at a very short notice. We informed about the villa in the morning and were already welcome the same day. Thank you very much!

Amazing Italy Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The Location of the Villa is amazing! The pictures are accurate, the Villa is on a hill overlooking the Aeolian islands. We got to enjoy stunning sunsets every night. It is well equipped and very clean. It's a calm 30 mins walk to Tindari's church and the amazing Milazzo Venus Pool. Also in Milazzo there is a port with the boat connections to go to the Aeolian islands. A great day out!

The owners were delightful and helpful with directions and information regarding things to do and place to go. We really enjoyed our Holiday and will definitely book again!

Beautiful villa with astonishing views

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing week with my girlfriend. This location is perfect as it is close to the mountains and surrounded by unique rural villages. The simplicity is the most beautiful thing about this location. I really recommended this location if you wish to escape from the city life and enjoy fresh air, good food and amazing views.

Spectacular!!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mali was an amazing place to spend my honeymoon. It is an oasis surrounded by culture, friendly people and great food!

The decor of the villa is traditional with a modern twist. It has a homely feeling that made the stay even more relaxing. It is a very well kept and clean. The landscape surrounding the the villa is magical and made our evening strolls memorable.

The owner were very delightful and friendly, they gave us amazing advice on where to go place to see. This gave us a taste of the culture which was spectacular.

This is wonderful location for a memorable holiday, I almost miss the feeling of the villa and am sure that I will return! :)

- Location:

Castroreale is a village of medieval origins, it has recently been voted the 2nd most beautiful village in Italy (April 2018). It offers a rich heritage of art, picturesque streets and squares and beautiful views that extend from Capo Milazzo to Tindari with a view of the Aeolian Islands and behind it the Peloritan Hills.

The Villa is located only 5 minutes walk to the closest grocery store and restaurant and 15 minutes walk to the town centre where you will find more restaurants, bars and pubs. Villa Malú is conveniently located for both airports, the journey from Catania takes approximately 1 hour 45 minutes drive and the journey from Palermo is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. Both journeys consist of breathtaking panoramic views on the coastal roads!

- Attractions and places to visit:

Cefalù is a coastal city located approximately an hour and half drive away where you can visit its 12th century Norman Cathedral famous for its elaborate Byzantyne mosaics and soaring towers and the Mandralisca museum which is home to archaeological exhibits and a picture gallery with a portrait of Antonello da Messina.

Mount Etna is Europe’s tallest active volcano with trails leading to the summit, is a “must see” when visiting Sicily. It is near the hilltop town of Taormina, which is only an hour and 15 minutes drive from the Villa.

Taormina is known for Teatro Antico di Taormina - an ancient Greco-Roman theatre that is still used today. It is also home to gorgeous sandy beaches with a narrow stretch of sand connecting to Isola Bella, a tiny island and nature reserve.

Milazzo is the largest commune in the Metropolitan City after Messina, the prime location for setting foot on to one of the UNESCO world heritage sites, the Aolian Islands. (the main port of departure for those heading to the Aeolian Islands) With several Hydrofoils (passenger only) leaving daily and throughout the year, crossings take between 45 Minutes to 3 hours depending on which Island you are heading for.

Tindari is a Greek-Roman archaeological site in Sicily, located only 40 minutes drive away. Tindari is home to the legend of The Black Madonna, art, culture, nature reserves, and fairytale landscapes.

Parco jalari (Jalari Park Museum) is situated on the Peloritan Mountains just a 15 minute drive away from the villa. The park contains hundreds of sculptures and stone fountains as well as over 40 Artesian shops with the aim to recreate the atmosphere of the past.
