"Ab Zeitpunkt der Anreise war der Kontakt stets super, auch via WhatsApp jederzeit sehr nett und zum richtigen Zeitpunkt. Übergabe des ersten Villa durch Katerina hat super geklappt. Auch die Umgebungsinformationen, etc waren wirklich super und hilfreich. Sehr schönes Haus mit traumhaftem Garten, tollem Aufenthaltshaus und einem schönen Tennisplatz."

Simon F. - United Kingdom | July 2019

"What a great place! Wonderful gardens, great pool which was a life saver in the 37 degree heat and used for most of the day. A beautifully peaceful setting all together. We had a great family holiday reactivating form the hustle and bustle of the UK."

Nicolas F. - United States | June 2019

"Beautiful house we had ever stayed. Thank you for this special family vacation we had at Baglio. We will remember forever. Gianfranco very helpful with everything from restaurants, reservations, beaches and places to discover. We could stay forever. Thank you!"

Dan Y - United Kingdom | October 2018

"The best holiday we have ever had. The whole family met up and spent the week together, catching up and having fun. Thank you for letting us stay in this magic villa. We'll never forget it."

Richard Wright - United Kingdom | September 2018

"What a fantastic villa, 10 of us stayed here for a week and found we all enjoyed all the amenities the villa had to offer. No fighting over the best rooms, no waiting for bathrooms as all the rooms were gorgeous in their own unique way, I mean a free standing bath was a lovely luxury! The boys thoroughly enjoyed the tennis court, and both left feeling they had improved their technique. The girls used the hot tub daily and would sing to us all as we prepared dinner or lunch. Gianfranco was so helpful throughout the stay and on our first evening sorted us out with dinner – huge Italian pizzas – out holiday had started! We have loved our stay and would love to visit again."

Eileen Mullane - United Kingdom | August 2018

"We have had an absolutely amazing time in your beautiful villa. Thank you so much for all your hospitality – it made such a difference to our stay here. We loved your pool, tennis court, hot tub, table tennis and card table. A special thanks to Lalit who had the most beautiful smile and could never do enough for us. Gianfranco, you went over and above to ensure that ew experienced the best of everything. You are our superhero, superman, batman, Robin and Tom Cruise all rolled into one! Thanks again!"

William B - United Kingdom | July 2018

"We had an unforgettable holiday. Thank you so much! We were so happy from the moment we arrived. We felt extremely lucky to stay here and everything was amazing. We have rented villas in the past but this beats everything. We especially loved the pool and the garden. It was like another world. Grazie to everybody who helped make this such a special week for me and my family"

Imogen R - United Kingdom | July 2018

"All in all a lovely week in a very special place. We completely fell in love with Sicily and with Baglio degli Speziali. We had planned this holiday for a long time and couldn't wait to get here, and then never wanted to leave. Everything was perfect, including the weather. We ate outside every day, swam in the pool, visited Mount Etna and took a trip to Catania. We would love to come back, either here or another part of Sicily. Many thanks for everything!"

Steven Sheakoski - United States | July 2018

"We brought out family to enjoy beautiful Sicily. The villa was stunning with the surrounding gardens being magical. Gianfranco made sure that all of our needs were net. We had a wonderful cena prepared by chef Alessandra. Even more special was that same night our daughter was proposed to. What a memory that will be for her and all of us. Gianfranco, thank you so much for your attention to Baglio degli Speziale and for sharing it with us. Mille grazie!"

Filip Blodinger - Switzerland | July 2018

"Great property and great service from Valeria, Gianfranco and Lalit! They did everything so that we felt comfortable and that we could have a dream holiday! Thank you for your help and kindness."

Leslie P - United Kingdom | June 2018

"We spent a week here and we couldn't have asked for more. Gianfranco was so helpful, and we really appreciated everything that he and the team did for us. The house itself defies expectation and the photos on the website don't do it justice. The attention to detail was extraordinary and everything was very well looked after. We were so comfortable, both inside and outside. The pool area was lovely and the garden so beautiful. We would have loved to stay for longer and are already thinking about coming back next year."

Natalee Lewis - Canada | June 2018

"Hello from Canadian honeymooners! What can we say? We've felt absolutely spoiled from our greeting the first night with our delicious dinner surprise. We went in the hot tub every night (set it to 39 degrees a couple of hours before going in) – probably the cleanest feeling water we've experienced in a rental villa. We love Gianfranco. The absolute best host you can imagine. He sent us daily maps when we let him know where we were off to, making sure we knew our way and did not overpay for parking. He's so helpful and kind. How can we take him back to Canada with us? The best part of our stay? We asked if the villa had pool floaties and we showed up to a massive, giant pink flamingo for two! Thanks for everything!"

Laura Kennedy - United Kingdom | June 2018

"What a lovely magical villa! The facilities were phenomenal. We truly enjoyed our time in this slice of Sicilian paradise. The surrounding town was great. Highly recommend Flora Cafe. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!"

Fiona Elliott - United Kingdom | October 2017

"The house is amazing the the pool and its surrounding area is absolutely beautiful. For some recommendations, the hike up Etna we did was breathtaking, and the whole family thoroughly enjoyed visiting Catania and Taormina. It's been a great holiday!"

Martin Gross - Germany | August 2017

"Welch ein wunderschönes Ferienhaus in fantastischer Lage. Die geschmackvolle Einrichtung der Zimmer, der gigantische "Wintergarten", der märchenhafte Garten draußen, der tolle und immer saubere Pool (Danke Lalit!). Das ganze Haus ist ein Traum, der nur noch von Gianfranco überboten wird. Dieser Mann ist ein Ausbund an Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft. Wenn irgendwas nicht 100% stimmt, ist er sofort zur Stelle. Er hilft den Gästen bei der Urlaubsplanung, kennt jedes Restaurant und jeden Strand im Raum Catania und hat immer die tollsten Urlaubtipps zur Hand. Gianfranco ist der Hammer! Vielen Dank für den wunderschönen Urlaub!! P.S.: Danke auch an Lalit, den lächelnden Gärtner..."

Rita Joarder - United Kingdom | July 2017

"Lovely pool, great BBQ, beautiful garden. Lalit was very nice and helpful. Thank you!"

Lucy Jarvis - South Africa | July 2017

"Fantastic villa. Best pool ever. Tennis court amazing. Thanks for all the help, restaurant recommendations and looking after the old folks! A week is way too short. We'll be back asap!"

Ashley Kirk - United Kingdom | July 2017

"What a fabulous villa. The facilities are amazing and provided plenty for us all to enjoy – the caron table, tennis and table tennis were favourites, not to mention the pool. The outdoor areas provided opportunity to find peace and quiet – essential when we have such busy lives. The pool area is particularly beautiful and it is all so private. We loved the unique “greenhouse” - a great party house! The location is perfect for visiting many beautiful towns and villages. Taormina although very touristy is beautiful and worth a visit – the chance to see La Boheme in the outdoor theatre was a treat. Other places we enjoyed were Zafferana and Acitrezza with the chance to swim in the sea. Thank you for allowing us to experience this wonderful piece of paradise on this beautiful and interesting island. A week is not enough!"

James Ashwell - United Kingdom | May 2017

"What a magical place. We have loved every moment and take Sicily and this villa to our hearts. Thank you thank you thank you! I Love Sicily! Its beaches are perfect. I went snorkelling in one today. England is OK but Sicily is FABULOUS"

Brigitta Sangl Schneider - Germany | August 2016

"Wir haben die Woche in dieser außergewöhnlichen Villa sehr genossen. Wir haben den Tennisplatz, aber auch die Instrumente mit Freude bespielt. Danke für diese gute Zeit!"

Gordon McDonald - United Kingdom | August 2016

"A big thank you to Gianfranco for all his help during our stay. Much appreciated by all of us. Both Gianfranco and his wife and Lalit went out of their way to make our stay here a good one. All very kind. We loved the villa, pool, tennis and the outside space, a great place to relax, and in a traditional Italian country home . A happy time was had by all."

Colin McBride - United Kingdom | July 2016

"What a truly spectacular villa. In a truly spectacular location with spectacular facilities and a perfect climate. We all had the most perfect time. It felt like a privilege to bee here!"
