“Blissful, relaxing. Tranquility. Sun and stars. Paradise!”
Reviewed 7 February 2015 for a stay in November 2014

I don't normally write reviews, but this house in Sicily has made such an impact on my heart, that I feel compelled to do so.

We flew into Catania, (direct from Stockholm!) grabbed a car with GPS and made our way - it took maybe an hour to find this place. I guess maybe it's a couple of hours further from Palermo.

The home itself (it feels like a home as soon as you arrive) is immaculate: clean, elegant, sophisticated but not pretentious. It gives an insight into the refined taste of its owners, Trente and Filip. When we arrived they had left us out a bottle of their tasty wine, grown locally. We took that and headed to the hot tub to spend an evening with fresh fruits, bubbles, organic cheeses and a myriad of stars.

And that was it. We fell in love with this place. The view over the sea is fantastic - you can see right the way to Calabria on a fine day. The beds are comfy, bathrooms and showers on both floors, an outdoor kitchen that is so fun to cook in on a warm evening....

One caveat - if you are looking for the chaotic joy that is Sicilian urban life, this is not for you. Here, snug to Etna, is a change of pace - a retreat into the value of peace. You drive up country roads, past farms and paint-peeled villas and into the countryside. And that is where you find the softly beating, poetic heart of real Sicily. The scent of lemon trees, the sounds of birds singing out to the sweet grasses, fresh cherries and almonds. You just breathe it in. Slowly.

I'm trying to find something bad to say - some warning to give to fellow explorers of Italy - but I can't. Yes, it's remote - but even so, you're only a few minutes from village shops and fifteen minutes from supermarkets and fine dining in Linguaglossa.

And finally, back to Trente and Filip. Two of the warmest, most decent and creative people I have met. A pleasure and an experience. They gave us all the local knowledge we needed to build Sicilian memories that will last a lifetime. If you're reading this Trente and Filip, then thank you. You made these two travelling UK/Swedes, extremely happy.

The photos on trip advisor show the house as it is. I've added one to this review that shows the view out over the mountains and ocean.

We stayed three weeks and it wasn't enough. We will be back. That is certain.

Trente and Filip were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The villa is just as described, with a beautiful pool, terrace and hot tub set in a tranquil and peaceful location, plus stunning views to the distant coastline. Paradise!!
It was certainly an ideal base to explore the Etna region.
As other guests have commented, the only access to the villa is via a track, which will certainly test your driving skills!!

“Absolutely Gorgeous Etna Villa”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in October 2013

We had an amazing stay at Trente and Phillipe's house. We did get a bit lost coming in - but we were not at all familiar with the area and were driving at night. Trente and Phillipe not only found us and but made sure we had dinner and took us to the wonderful pizzeria in town before escorting us to the house. When they say that the place is MAGIC, they are not kidding. The setting and the house are unbelievably beautiful - the grove of olive and fruit trees, the patio with view of the mountains and ocean, the tranquil feeling of the home. Although we loved exploring the area, we often found ourselves coming back early in the evening to make a nice dinner, listen to Trente's lovely music collection and have a soak in the hot tub under the stars. Everything is clean and comfortable and Trente and Phillipe are very kind and helpful hosts. All the little nearby villages were beautiful and charming. We will certainly be back and recommend this special place to anyone looking for a magical visit to Sicily! And Terre di Trente (the wine Trente and Phillip make) is spectacular.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in July 2013

Reality is even better than photos, really! We totally enjoyed our vacation in Trente's house. Most of important things have already been said - fully equipped house, clean swimming pool, very private property, pleasant terrace with a great view.

Everything was exactly as described and we can definitely recommend this accommodation. You can relax and do simply nothing but also Piedimonte Etneo is a very good start point to explore east of Sicily and Lipari Islands (not so far to Milazzo, Messina, Catania, Siracusa) and quite close to nice beaches in Giardini Naxos and Taormina. Car is more than highly recommended and good driving skills too! :-)

We were lucky and met few neighbors and we were astonished by their kindness.

Thanks Trente and Filip!
