"Thank you for a simply brilliant holiday! Capinera was wonderful. We felt right at home there and would love to come back. Taormina was so pretty and seeing Mount Etna every day was so exciting."

Sasha Foster - Germany | August 2018

"The customer service was very professional, polite and very helpful! Everyone got back to us as soon as possible. I was also really grateful for the travel package we received before our trip! Capinera is a wonderful villa! We all really enjoyed it so much, that even though we usually like to always visit different places in our holidays, we’d really love to return one day! We spent most of our time on the terrace with the amazing view and in the wonderful garden. And with its position so close to the beach and also to the funicular we couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you for the fantastic holiday!"

Ekaterina Ivanova - Russia | July 2018

"Me and all my friends, who stayed in Capinera, want to express our gratitude to all solosicilly stuff. Every person who contact us was very polite and helpfull, and I got speedy answers to all my questions. We had no problem with payment, deposit and all other matters concerning villa. I was pleasantly surprise to receive property and area guidebook, which was really helpful to enjoy our stay in Taormina. And about villa Capinera. I travelled about 18 years mostly in properties like Capinera, but this villa is really outstanding. I can even say, than Capinera is one of the best properties I've ever rented. The territory is absolutely beautiful and really big - we enjoy every corner, its magnificent garden with great trees, plants and flowers thats falls down right at your feet. Terrace is perfect - the sea view, shadow from ancient olive tree. It was difficult to find more lovely place for dinner even in Taormina. I also want to mention, that kitchen is perfectly equipped - we enjoy cooking very much, so I had everything I need, even perfect barbeque in the garden. Location couldn't be better - just in front of the door the is a funicular to Taormina, 2 shops with food and wine that works all day to 12 p.m., restaurants and bars, bus station. It's only 30 steps to the beach - there is a special door in the garden. We never takes sunbeds at the beach, because sunbathing at our terrace was much more comfortable. Despite Capinera locates in the heart of everything, it is absolutely calm, quiet and private - nobody can see you because of its garden and hidden location. Yes, and Capinera even more beautiful than on pictures. On the first day we had a warm welcome with served vine and tasty food. So our vacation in Capinera was really great! I will certainly recommend this property for a vacation and I hope to return there again!"

Julian B. - United Kingdom | June 2018

"Everything was perfect. Thank you! We definitely would come back. The beach at Taormina was busy but very pretty."

Peter Thompson - United Kingdom | April 2018

"We came here to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary – what a beautiful place. The villa and Taormina took our breath away. The villa is beautifully equipped and cared for. We have really enjoyed the trips to Taormina and also to Mount Etna. Sicily and the people are wan and welcoming. What a wonderful holiday!"

Susan Comerford - Australia | October 2017

"We absolutely loved our stay in Capinera, and I am more than happy to write a review. Both the accommodation itself, and the customer service provided were outstanding. I will get to that in the next few days."

Miranda Young - Hong Kong | September 2017

"We can't find fault with anything. The villa was lovely and we enjoyed our time there so much. Taormina was the perfect place to spend the week, with beaches, sights and nature all nearby. Your service was exemplary and the travel documents we received were so helpful. Excellent in all respects so thank you to every member of the team and villa staff."

Charles O'Reilly - Australia | August 2017

"Leaving was the hardest part of this holiday. Everything else was super easy! Prompt responses from you. A beautiful and well-maintained villa. A great location with Taormina at our doorstep. The beach only a few steps away. Everything ran like clockwork and we all had a great time."

Sam Cox - United States | July 2017

"I never though that a holiday could be as much fun as this one. Although we spent time on the beautiful terrace relaxing, we also visited so many places nearby that we feel we really got to know the real Sicily. A fascinating place. We'd love to come back and explore more!"

Emer Craig - Ireland | May 2017

"We will be back! No words able to describe the peace and beauty of Sicily and the luxury of the villa! Wonderful place for your little girls, 4 and 2 years. The garden was a great playground for them. We've had a lovely stay."

Greg Jackson - Canada | September 2016

"Capinera was the perfect villa for us. I don't know how we could have made the holiday better. We had great weather, we went to the beach every day (walking down was so easy!) and ate like kings and queens in Taormina. The traditional vibe of the house was really excellent and made us feel 100% Sicilian. Thanks!"

Sandy Wood - United States | August 2016

"Full marks for everything. The house was gorgeous, the location was fantastic and we got to enjoy a brilliant mix of relaxation and activity. We really recommend a trip up Mt. Etna. The views from the top were amazing. Catania was also super."

Bertie Sanders - Ireland | July 2016

"I had always wanted to go to Taormina and so staying at Capinera was perfect. It was so handy being so close to everything. The house was great and very comfy and all of the questions that we had were answered quickly and clearly from soloSicily. Highly recommended!"

Laura Spiers - Australia | June 2016

"The villa was perfectly clean and tidy when we arrived.  It was very spacious and good location to the cable car up to the main town of Taormina. We have recommended your company to other friends and have shared the website"

Helen Furse - United Kingdom | May 2016

"We have had a lovely half term week here – the weather has been fantastic apart from one rainy day when we went to Etna. The food is delicious. Our boys loved paddling around in the sea there although it was a bit too chilly in the water for me! There is a friendly cafe there too, good for lunch. Would recommend walking up to Monte Tauro and Castelmola. Amazing views. Etna is a great day trip but check the summit is open before you go – it was closed when we went (too windy). Car hire place up the road is very friendly, helpful and convenient. Thank you for a brilliant stay. The locals have been lovely to us and our boys. The villa is gorgeous and has a great location."

Stephan Gansow - Germany | October 2015

"Alles ok, sauber, Service stimmte vor Ort und aus der Zentrale. Auch die Webseite war ausführlich genug. Also ringsum zufrieden. Wir werden Sie weiterempfehlen."

Francesca Buccini - Australia | September 2015

"The Capinera property we stayed in is beautiful. The villa is spacious, well equipped and the view and access to the beach is fantastic. I loved that I can hear the water splashing on the beach from the villa. It was just a shame we had bad weather all week and we couldn’t enjoy it properly. The owners were wonderful and greeted us with the table set with lovely food which was perfect as we arrived late evening and the pantry had some basics which was very helpful. The property is perfectly located near the bus station to go to Taormina and other destinations. I would definitely recommend this property and Taormina to friends."

Jane Maslen - United Kingdom | September 2015

"We are now back in rainy England after our fabulous trip to Sicily. The villa Capinera in mazzarro was lovely. Pietro and his wife couldn't have been more welcoming and their hospitality second to none. The villa was very clean and we couldn't have wished more from the extensive facilities available. Sicily is certainly a stunning friendly island and we hope to return in the future."

Edward Burdett - United States | September 2015

"A lovely villa with fantastic views and an ideal location to explore the surrounding area. We had beautiful weather which helped make this a brilliant holiday."

Matt Higgs - United Kingdom | August 2015

"The owners of Capinera were very welcoming and although the passing train can be seen and heard it didn't spoil what for us was a splendid view and a really good location. The villa was well kitted out and the inside was really cosy with modern and traditional touches. We were so close to everything and it was nice to not have to need or use a car."

Carolyn Rutz - Canada | August 2015

"What a place! The villa and views were perfect. It was great to not use a car and be able to walk everywhere, including our lovely beach where we spent many relaxing days. Taormina is simply breathtaking and the weather in autumn was ideal."

Peter Ford - United Kingdom | July 2015

"Good service and warm welcome. A great villa for a group of friends and the terrace was ideal for our evening glasses of wine and meals with views across the sea. We had blue skies everyday and made the most of our local beach. We also ate far too much and gorged ourselves on cakes and ice cream. But that's what holidays are for!"

Vladlena Aliyev - Russia | June 2015

" We loved Capinera and Taormina. Outside terrace and plants and trees made it very pretty and relaxing. Wonderful to see sea every morning. We took trips to Acireale, Catania and Syracuse but mostly spent time on beach and walking around Taormina. Great soloSicily!"

Tristan Crawley - United Kingdom | May 2015

"Taormina is fantastic and the villa suited all our needs. Beach and town centre close-by."

Dympna Jones - United Kingdom | April 2015

"I would like to give some feedback to you regarding our holiday in Sicily. It is all good! Solo Sicily: We had no problems with the holiday arrangements and communication prior to our holiday. The payment was straightforward. You answered all our questions about the villa and the area. Villa Capinera: Delightful. It was spotlessly clean but very homely and a little quirky.It was fully equipped with everything you might need to cook. A lovely welcome package and wine and snacks were there when we arrived, including mini easter eggs. We loved the location, the gate into the garden and the gate out to the beach. The train was a big concern for me before we went. It is very close to the villa but it is there and gone so quickly that it really isn’t a problem. It does not run overnight and if we heard it in the morning we just turned over and went back to sleep! I am so glad that we went ahead and booked Capinera because everything else about it is delightful. From the villa it is 2 minutes to the cable car up to Taormina ( 3euro) or a walk up steps takes 20 minutes. The beach was beautiful and quiet in April. The next beach , Isla Bella was only 10 minutes away and also beautiful. Sicily: What a varied holiday. The photos we sent home ranged from sunbathing and foot massages on a beach to climbing in the snow on the top of Mount Etna in boots coats and hats! Inbetween were beautiful scenes and architecture and history in Taormina and Siracuse and walking along the Alacante gorges. Food and wine delicious wherever we went."

Barry & Carol Johnson - Canada | October 2014

"Thank you very much for your very professional service. You were very helpful right from our first contact. We really appreciated the continued follow up & interest to ensure a perfect holiday. We shall definitely recommend Solosicily for vacation planning. We enjoyed Villa Capinera & the extra touch of the wine & antipasti were a very welcome greeting. Pietro & his wife were very pleasant & helpful & they very generously left us 2 bottles of wine on our second day at the villa. We dined at Il Castelluccio three times & enjoyed every meal. Again..thank you for all your help."

Nick Ketchum - United Kingdom | September 2014

"The villa had been perfectly prepared and was very well equipped as well as being beautifully decorated and cared for inside and out. The arrangment with Lina the cook worked perfectly and was a highlight of our stay. Nabila and the whole Etna area was wonderful!"

Emily Sparks - United Kingdom | August 2014

"We had a fantastic holiday in Taormina. There is a train that passes by but we were either at the beach or exploring Taormina and other towns that it did not bother us. The location is really good for those that don't have a car. We enjoyed making use of the terrace on the odd evening we ate in but most of the time we were lazy and spoilt ourselves at the many restaurants nearby. Make sure you take a picture of Isola Bella at sunset! Overall we had a great time."

Jeannine Gouvre - France | August 2014

"We had lovely week in Capinera and by the beautiful beach. It was relaxing and convenient. We had great time in Taormina and we visit Mt Etna and also Catania. Merci soloSicily."

Gretchen Slainger - Germany | July 2014

"The villa is magnificent and the outside terrace was very pretty. We enjoyed taking the cable car to the top of Taormina where we had amazing views and nice meals. The beach is close and was not very busy. Perfect little trip."

Annette Casazza - United States | June 2014

"Everywhere we look we find a new treasure from the beautiful apricot trees, lemon trees and orang trees, the inviting terrace with a view of the sea, to the lovely decorative and comfortable furnishings. Italian warmth and hospitality was evident from the moment we arrived. Thank you."

Nalini Moore - Australia | May 2014

"Our stay in Taormina was the highlight of our trip. The villa Capinera was in prime location, at the base of the cable car, with the beach at our doorstep. The restaurants at the beach had some of the best food we have eaten in Sicily and the staff were so pleasant and lovely with the kids. The agents that met us at the property were fantastic to deal with (given we arrived so late at night) and the welcome bottle of wine and platters of food added such a nice touch. Thank you so much for your assistance in booking our holiday in Sicily. I will be recommending your company to my friends and colleagues."
