A beautiful, very comfortable villa for a peaceful holiday.
Me and my husband plus our two children had a wonderful stay in Patti. The villa was absolutely perfect with everything we could possibly need. Very comfortable, very clean and spacious, with a magnificent swimming pool which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The villa is ideally situated for the town, the seaside and as a base for visiting other places around Sicily. Martina and her family were always available for any tips/questions/advise and helped in any way possible to make our stay perfect. We had a wonderfully relaxed holiday and I would very highly recommend Villa Fontanelle, we hope to return to Patti and will look to book the Villa again.

Good Accommodation
We (4 adults)stayed at Villa Fontanella for two weeks in October 2014. The villa met our need very well; a reasonably well equipped kitchen, plenty of cutlery, crockery and glasses; a small table and four chairs outside the kitchen which was in the sun at breakfast time and a larger table with four chairs outside the lounge which was in the shade at lunchtime but warm in the evening with views out to sea; the lounge had seating for six; the dining room had a large table with seating for six; there were three bedrooms upstairs, two doubles and a twin, all with air conditioning; a bathroom upstairs and a large shower room downstairs which contained a washing machine. The WiFi was good and accessible in all rooms, Sky TV was available but the majority of channels were italian. The pool was a short walk from the villa, had sturdy comfortable loungers and was kept very clean. Patti is not a very exciting town and many famous tourist sites such as Taormina and Villa Romana del Casale are a reasonable drive away but access to the autostrada is good so can be visited in a day. Trips to the Aeolian Islands and Etna are also possible in a day. Of the places close by the Roman ruins at Patti are better than the Tripadvisor reviews suggest, the Church of the Black Madona and the Greek/Roman ruins at Tindari are impressive and Montalbano Elicona interesting. There is a good selection of restaurants in Patti di Marina.

Beautiful Views
The villa was lovely, very comfortable and had loads of space for the 4 of us. The views from the pool (unheated so still chilly in April) were amazing. The kitchen could use some more cutlery and cooking utensils etc, but this was minor. It would also be useful to have a folder with maps indicating where supermarkets were and what attractions there may be locally. However the owners were so helpful, came to collect us when we got lost on arrival (the villa is quite hard to find) and escorted us in their car the next morning to try and find the supermarket just before it closed.

Great value
We had an absolut wonderful time in Villa Fontanelle. The whole proces from the initial contact about the lease to the reception in the house was outstanding. The house is well equipped, clean and has the rooms you need when travelling with two adult children. The pool area is well maintained and the views from the terrasse is second to none. We had directi sight of the Æoelian Islands the whole week. The location is very convenient for excursions to the surrounding area. We sent to most of the Islands ( do go from Patti, as you avoid the hurly-burly of Millazo), to Taormina and to Etna as the most memorable. But truly,, renting the house is mostly about relaxing on the premises, having a glass of good red and enjoying life as good as it gets.

If privacy is what you are after this 'villa' may not be for you
Overall it was a nice place to stay and the views are fantastic but just bear in mind if privacy is what you are looking for this may not be the villa for you... The accommodation is in fact a part of the larger family villa albeit does have it own entrance and facilities. The view from the pool is fantastic but the pool is shared with the family which we found out shortly before we arrived. I think we were the first to stay for the summer season so the fridge/freezer was not switched on when we arrived. When we did switch it on the smell was awful! Other bits- The rooms are a nice size and do have aircon. Plenty of bathrooms. Kitchen is reasonably basic albeit does have the necessary tools

Dear Guest, I am really sorry to hear that despite having an enjoyable time you did not leave 100% satisfied. At Villa Fontanelle we try to make everything we can in order to make our guests feel better than at home and years of returning customers make us proud of the job we do every day. For what concerns your privacy issues, the listing states that the Villa is a bi-familiar one, I am sorry if it was not clear to you from the beginning but we are always very transparent in saying that the swimming pool is going to be shared with my family (which makes a relatively low use of it, depending on the month of the year). Additionally I believe it has happened only once that a member of my family went to the pool during your stay. For what concerns the freezer, it happens that sometimes previous guests turn it off accidentally and it was not noticed from our side, my apologies for that. Although I do not want to put in doubt the fact that the freezer was smelling bad after you switched it on, be assured that we perform a very in depth cleaning (including fridge and freezer) every time a guest leaves the house. Once again thank you for your review, we value everything our guests have to say about their stay, we take pride of the good reviews and use the not so good ones to keep improving the quality of our service.

Spacious Modern Villa with panoramic views
We chose this villa in Patti as a central location to reach inland villages and easy access to beach and Autostrada. It was spacious for 3 couples, a variety of outdoor settings to enjoy the views, sun or breezes. The pool area and gardens were well maintained and also afforded views to Patti marina or the hinterland. As we were up high enough to have such fantastic views,( sometimes to see the Aeolian Islands too) we opted to walk to the township and down to the marina, the walk back up the hill was part of our daily exercise, but we did not mind. The villa was well appointed and contained modern facilities such as wi fi, sound system,dishwasher, washing machine. We were very compfortable and enjoyed our stay very much.

Было здорово !!!!
Были в этом месте с 16 по 28 июля. Тихая деревушка для спокойного отдыха в кругу семьи)) Вилла - превосходная! В доме есть все что нужно. Единственный минус - отсутствие ресторанов . Есть только кафешки и таверны домашнего типа, которые именуются ресторанами.

The Patti Family Loved Villa Fontanelle!
Villa Fontanelle in Patti Sicily was a great place to experience the best of Sicily! Our family name is Patti and we were looking for a place to share precious moments with my 85 year old Sicilian father. Mr Patti was very happy the Villa and with all the surrounding area of Northern Sicily.We were a group of 6 and the villa was very spacious and laid out well.The pool and the views were breathtaking! Various verandas over look the sea and the town of Patti. Ancient ruins are a short drive and white sand beaches of Trindari are also close to the villa. The town of Patti is an undiscovered gem. Easy driving to Taromina and Cefalu, We saw most of the Island from the Villa.Can't wait to go back!
