Manuela M. - Germany | June 2019

"Zum Ferienhaus gibt es ausschließlich Positives zu sagen: Ein sehr schönes Haus, geschmackvoll eingerichtet, alles sehr sauber und gepflegt, inkl. des Gartens und mit toller Lage direkt am Meer. Der Vermieter sehr nett, auch mit Tipps zum Essengehen, Einkaufen etc. Auch mit der Abwicklung über Solosicily waren wir zufrieden. Wir reisen mit Sicherheit einmal wieder nach Sizilien und dann ist dieses Ferienhaus wieder erste Wahl!"

Ingrida Paskeviciute - Lithuania | September 2018

"We really have great memories of our time in Sicily and Giada;.Thank you so much for the wonderful time we had at your place! We enjoyed every moment. Giada is amazing. From the villa you have magnificent views of the sea and the area is absolutely calm, relaxing and charming. A gorgeous, quiet beach..The house is very clean, the terrace and garden are very well kept. We slept comfortably, ate well, and felt right at home. The property has very friendly and excellent owner Salvo who was always available for us for questions and help. We definitely recommend this property and would love to return sometime. I thought the service from SoloSicily was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. We really have great memories of our time in Sicily and Giada."

Maciej Szczyrba - Poland | July 2018

"What can I say... is the 5th time I've booked through Solo Sicily and I would never book anywhere else :-) As always everything from booking process, service, support, villa and stay was excellent! And finally we found our dream vacation - Sicily at the Villas from Solo Sicily! I hope Sicily and especially south Sicily keeps away from mass-tourism also in the next years. Planning to stay at Giada for 4 weeks each vacations for the next 10 years! Thank you!"

Antonio Giangreco - Switzerland | July 2018

"Wie immer alles Bestens! Kundenservice Solosicily = Super, Villa Giada = Super"

Andrea Sembenotti - Italy | June 2018

"Facciamo fatica a lasciare questo bellissimo posto.  La casa è bellisima e ci siamo trovati molto bene, ma quello che rende questo luogo un vero paradiso è la posizione sul mare, gli splendidi spazi esterni e la spiaggia. Ci siamo trovati benissimo, l'unica cosa che ci è mancato è il tempo... la prossima volta torneremo per almeno un mese!  Siamo stati molto seguiti sia di soloSicily e delle local manager sia dei padroni di casa, sempre gentili e disponibilie!  Alla prossima! "

Francesca Sembenotti - Italy | June 2018

"We had an amazing holiday at Villa Giada and the villa exceeded our expectations. The outdoor spaces of the villa are probably its greatest pride, they are extremely well-kept, vast and the position is very beautiful; but the recently refurbished interior was a nice and much appreciated surprise. Upon arrival we found a very generous Welcome Pack that saved us a trip to the stores, the house owner was very nice and helpful and both she and our Local Manager stayed in contact with us during our stay to know how we were settling in and whether we needed anything. The beach in front of the villa is perfect, safe and well-maintained. We would certainly recommend SoloSicily, for the smooth booking process and communication, the outstanding service and good standard, and the availability. We look forward to come back to Giada in the future!"

Heloise Senechal - United Kingdom | May 2018

"I am pleased to report that we found Villa Giada exceeded expectations - it was an enviably situated and well-equipped villa, recently refurbished to a very good standard. We have found SoloSicily to have been an outstanding company to deal with - the most efficient and professional villa letting agency that I have had dealings with. We would certainly use SoloSicily again and would return to Giada with great pleasure. Many thanks to all at SoloSiciliy for a faultless service. We look forward to booking through you again."

Marina Trost - Germany | October 2017

"Ihre Website ist übersichtlich und informativ, Ihr Kundenservice erste Klasse! Wir fühlten uns zu jedem Zeitpunkt bestens betreut. Besonders angenehm fiel uns in diesem Zusammenhang die jederzeitige Ansprechbarkeit (z.B. von Gabriella) auf. Check-in und Check-out waren höchst pünktlich und angenehm. Giada hat unsere Erwartungen in vollem Umfang erfüllt. Wir haben es in einem tadellosen Zustand vorgefunden. Die Ausstattung – einschließlich Verbrauchsartikeln wie Spül- und Waschmittel und sonstigen Artikeln – war ausgezeichnet und ließ keine Wünsche offen. Wir haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt."

Fabienne Mueller - Switzerland | September 2017

"Wir hatten sehr schöne Ferien in der Villa Giada. Es war wunderbar so nahe am Meer die Ferien zu verbringen. Grundsätzlich haben wir es uns genau so vorgestellt. Salvo der uns in Empfang nahm war sehr hilfsbereit und nett. Auch das Personal vom 'Cooking Service' war überaus freundlich und das Abendessen war hervorragend."

Silvia Mannheim - Germany | June 2017

"Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in Sizilien. Der Service vorab und vor Ort war vorbildlich. Wir wurden über alles informiert und sogar noch darüber hinaus. Das Haus hat die Erwartungen mehr als erfüllt, auch der Service und unser Ansprechpartner vor Ort. Immer wieder gerne und eine Empfehlung wert!"

Christopher Howard - United Kingdom | May 2017

"I stayed at Giada at the end of May with my son and daughter in law and my little grand daughter. We had a wonderful holiday. Giada was perfect in every way for us. The little granny annex for me and a amazingly well equipped house with a very generous welcome pack which meant we didn't need to shop immediately on arrival after a long journey. The position of the villa was absolutely ideal for us with a 22month old toddler. She adored the garden and the beach and was completely safe. She and I were up every morning at 6.30 to go down to the beach to watch the lone fisherman bring in his boat and then collect shells. I would certainly recommend it to other young families as an ideal house for a holiday."

Christina Vossen - Norway | May 2017

"Thank you very much for your emails.  We had a splendid stay in Sicily and enjoyed especially our stay at Villa Giada.  We can recommend this type of holiday definitely to anybody. The service and welcome of Salvo was highly appreciated.  We highly appreciated Solo Sicily trying to assist us in retrieving our lost baggage after struggeling with Alitalia and local operators after our arrival. Luckily it turned out very well."

Karl Borgelt - Netherlands | April 2017

"Yes indeed back at home after a fantastic week in Sicily. Regarding Giada - loved the garden and (almost) private beach which is where we spent most of our time. It was a great experience. We enjoyed our day trips into the towns and the accessibility of the beach was fantastic. We certainly would recommend Sicily as a travel destination and the customer experience from Solosicily was exceptional. Thanks you!"

Claire Langston - United Kingdom | September 2016

"We had a wonderful holiday thanks. The customer service was amazing - very quick responses at all stages of our holiday - initial enquiries about villas, enquiries about the villa after booking and help with an issue while we were out there. The villa itself was amazing. The outdoor space really made this an amazing holiday for us. We have two small children and having the different outdoor eating areas, enclosed garden area, beach on our doorstep etc made this a very relaxing holiday for us. The villa was well equipped and good for our needs but it really was the outdoor space here that made a difference."

Tobias Reipen - Germany | October 2015

"Es war alles bestens in Giada - wir hatten einen sehr schönen Urlaub dort! Der Service war erstklassig und das Haus, besonders der Garten und der Strand, waren perfekt!"

Wendy Liu Penderis - United Kingdom | October 2015

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sicily and Giada and were very pleased with the service and hospitality we received from both soloSicily and Salvo, the property owner. The location of Giada couldn't be more perfect, and the direct access onto the secluded sandy beach was just perfect for our two boys. In fact, we loved it so much that we want to return next year! The south-east is such a beautiful part of Sicily, and there is much more to be explored there - we can't wait to go back."

Bodo Zimmermann - Germany | October 2015

"Wir haben uns in Villa Giada sehr wohl gefühlt. Insbesondere die Außenanlagen mit Grill, Pizzaofen, Abwasch, Dusche, überdachter Lounge und Esstisch hat uns gut gefallen. Die Küche ist top ausgestattet. Die Nähe zum Meer mit der Sonnenterrasse und Blick aufs Meer hat uns tolle Sonnenuntergänge beschert. Bei Fragen war Salvatore stets erreichbar und und pünktlich zu den verabredeten Terminen."

Ilka F├╝rstenberger - Germany | September 2015

"Giada is a little paradise where 'relaxing' was invented. The villa clearly exceeds our expectations (the garden, the equipment)... fabulous! It is made with love and personal involvement!"

Carol Fraser - United Kingdom | September 2015

"We loved our stay in Villa Giada, it was very hard to drag ourselves away from the fabulous garden where there was always a comfortable shady spot to relax. The facilities were first class, everything you need in a kitchen including outdoor cooking, the Villa was very clean and good quality linen and towels. Salvadorie was very helpful showing us around when we arrived. Your website was easy to access and Villa Giada was exactly as described,  lots of photos showing what it was like. A big thank you must go to your customer service team who rang us before we left to make sure we had all the information we needed, and were always at the end of the phone if we had any questions. Never before have we had such detailed instructions to finding our holiday propery, every aspect of your service was faultless. We will return to Sicily but also wonder if your company do any other locations in Europe. Thank you once again, it was a holiday we will not forget."

Georgia French - United Kingdom | August 2015

"Such a splendid week in the sun and enjoying Sicilian culture and food. For us it was our first time to Sicily and I can honestly say we all want to come back!"

Federik Johans - Switzerland | August 2015

"We are very sad to be back in Switzerland. We could have lived in Giada forever. We were celebrating my father's 60 birthday and the villa was perfect; soloSicily made sure all our preparations were ready. We had so much fun as a family and as friends from beginning to the end."

Susan Frisby - United Kingdom | August 2015

"We had a fabulous time and want to book it again next May when it might be a bit cooler, so we can have a bit more of a look at the island. We stayed in the sea mostly this time. A perfect holiday."

Ned Lathrop - Canada | July 2015

"I can not find enough superlatives to describe our fantastic time at "Giada" and Solo Sicily's assistance (before, during and after our visit to Sicily) Your website is excellent and represents the Villas as accurately as possible. There were no surprises upon arrival and everything was "as described" on your Web Page. The Villa and grounds including the cottage were immaculate and the kitchen and outdoor barbecue area well equipped and well used by all of us. Giada was actually more spectacular than we expected and perfect for 2 couples. This "gated" villa with private beach on a secluded cove was the best we have rented in Europe. The owner Salvatore was gracious and his complementary gift of fruits, vegetables and pasta was well appreciated. He also brought us a gift of local ice cream the night before we departed. Every morning we would venture out to visit various towns and villages around the general area and spend the rest of the day on the beach. It was a piece of paradise. Would highly recommend this villa to anyone that is adventurous enough to drive into the nearby town every day and shop for that evenings dinner. Loved everything about our stay. Thanks again for all your assistance. It was greatly appreciated."

Michael Valvo - United Kingdom | July 2015

"We really enjoyed our stay in Sicily at Villa Giada. Sicily in general is a great destination as the weather is constant, sunny and warm. The villa’s beachfront position is unbeatable and the beach itself is perfect for a family with a small child. We were quite happy with the Villa, everything was clean and cosy. We felt welcome and at home. The cook was lovely and we really liked the food and the service. It is a great treat! We would definitely consider coming back!"

Alicja Szymanowska - Poland | June 2015

"Villa Giada is very well equipped, there was no need of buying anything as it happened to me with other holiday villas I booked elsewhere. The location is perfect, it is a peaceful place, the beach is wonderful and not crowded which is a great plus. The caretaker Salvo is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and he offered us delicious tomatoes from his own vegetable garden. We will remember our stay at Giada as one of our best holidays ever. This was our second stay in Sicily, and we chose this area again because of its tranquility and beauty."

Janet Crichton - United Kingdom | May 2015

"We did enjoy our stay at Giada and in view of the last minute cancellation of our flight to Catania airport and the subsequent re-route to Palermo we would like to say a special thankyou to Danuta who was a tremendous help with coordinating our car hire and overnight stay in a hotel at Palermo. We took 6 hours to drive down to the house on the Sunday morning and the owners were very understanding with meeting us and leading us to the house. They also supplied a fantastic welcome hamper of food. We didn't arrive till around 18:00 which I am sure upset their own arrangements but could not have been more welcoming and understanding, and the food they supplied meant we could just fire up the BBQ and relax with a cold drink and a fine meal which was a great relief after all the trauma of our travel to the house. Thanks"

Stamhuis Family - Belgium | April 2015

"We loved it here. The weather was beautiful, so we were outside on the beach all day. The kids are sad we have to go. They built sand castles, swam, went fishing and searching for shells. It was perfect and we hope to come back!"

Christine Bradshaw - United Kingdom | October 2014

"Absolutely perfect accomodation for a complete break from work etc. Many thanks to Salvatore for guiding us here after a long journey including a 2 hour wait for a hire car at Catania airport and for the fridge and basket full of goodies. We've been very lazy and not looked around as much as intended but Noto was worth a trip and not too far, Modica worth it for the chocolate shop! (but not the chocolate museum) And Pozzallo is a lovely little place to wander around in the evening. The weather has been perfect and walking the length of the garden to cool off in the sea was just the job. Maybe a return trip is on the cards."

Rosemary Nalden - United Kingdom | October 2014

"Thank you for everything you have cared about to make a holiday in this place absolutely perfect. Nothing quite prepared us for the warmest of welcoming we received, the comforts of the villa and the beauty and hospitaly of the surroundings. And what a beach! A week isn't nearly long enough to do justice to Giada – but at least we can take back the happiest of memories!"

Neil Crichton - United Kingdom | September 2014

"We have really enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa. Like everyone else we appreciated the welcome hamper of food and the tomatoes especially as we had to drive down from Palermo and saw no supermarkets on the way. We haven't done much except chill out in the lovely garden and had BBQ's all but 2 nights of our stay. I tried fishing but caught nothing. However what we have seen of Sicily and our experience of the people we have met makes a return trip to the island a definite for the future."

Ekaterina Smirnova - Russia | September 2014

"We spent a great week here! It's not the first time for us in Sicily but now we are absolutely sure that Giada is one of the best places here. Sea, sun and sand. A dream. The hospitality of Salvatore was great. Food basket with fresh vegetables and his kind help in all our needs – thanks a lot for everything! Hope to come back someday!"

Raffaele Belvedere - Canada | September 2014

"We had a wonderful week here at Giada. The welcome was generous with the food basket with lots of vegetables and goodies. We visited lots of towns every morning and came back to enjoy the beach in the afternoon. We did a lot of cooking on wood BBQ and the food tasted great. Gelato was a treat on the last day. Wonderful place – we will not forget it."

Jane Eleanor - United Kingdom | August 2014

"We had a really wonderful break in Sicily and Giada was a perfect spot...very peaceful and relaxing with exceptional equipment and fittings. I looked through a number of websites (we'd already decided on Sicily) and yours was attractive, easy to use and informative. We are now seriously considering going in a larger group and using the other house as well on the same site. Salvatore was very helpful and the welcome pack was HUGE. I would definitely recommend your company to friends."

Saneeah Okhai - United Kingdom | August 2014

" We have really enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa and feel like only just beginning to explore the surrounding area. Thank you Salvatore for all the food and drink you provided for us it definitely helped for the first few days as we did not need to rush off to the supermarket and the ice cream from the American Bar was outstanding. We hope to be able to come back some day."

Lynne Buckler - United Kingdom | July 2014

"We can't fault the villas or the service. We received regular texts from the owner checking that everything was OK and on arrival we were greeted by a fabulous welcome hamper. Beautiful place which we would happily return too. Your customer service was first rate and thank you for organising a wheel chair."

Yasmina Siadatan - United Kingdom | July 2014

" We had the most fabulous time. Salvatore and family really were such lovely hosts. Thanks"

Karen Wakefield - United States | June 2014

"Villa Giada is such a beautiful villa, and what a location! Salvatore was so helpful to us and he equipped the villa with a huge amount of provisions - we didn't have to go to the store for the first few days! And then he brought us more tomatoes which we ate every last one of. He couldn't have been nicer.  "

John Haverty - Ireland | June 2014

"We had a great time, thanks. Giada is a great house - fantastic location on a fine beach, and well stocked. The Moncada family were very helpful. Favourite trip was probably Scicli, although we like Pozzallo, not overrun with tourists."

Katherine Carr - United Kingdom | April 2014

"Thank you thank you to the Moncada family! Your warm welcome (& rescuing me from Pozzallo when I got lost!) was a wonderful start to our holiday! Your house is lovely! We loved the garden and the beach! We also loved especially our day trips to Marzamemi & Ortigya/Siracusa! Thank you for the amazing fruit and vegetables – what a treat for us!"

Kath Spencer - United Kingdom | April 2014

"We had a wonderful stay at Giada - the house is lovely and had everything we needed. The outdoor living space, garden and beach are absolutely fantastic, we spent so much time outdoors - our kids loved it! The beach is beautiful and private - we only saw one other family on it during our week's stay. The Moncada family, who own the house, were extremely warm and welcoming and even came to find me by car late at night when I got lost en route to the villa. They were so helpful with any questions that we had and left us the most beautiful and generous basket of vegetables and fruit from their farm. Highlights for us were day trips to Marzamemi, the gorge near Ispica, and Siracusa. Everything was wonderful, thank you very much!"
