Big, big thanks to Antonio for his wonderful hospitality and foe being so kind and friendly and opening his beautiful home to us for the week. Cottages are so clean and maintained so well, which truly shows how hard you and the maintenance team work. The trips you both recommended were great fun. Etna Quads was fab and Taormina beautiful. Our last day was spent at Etna Land (an amazing waterpark in Catania) and we would definitely recommend this to anyone, especially those with children. The fruit and veg we picked daily from your garden was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble and we want to thank you both from the bottom of our hearts for making our stay so wonderful. "

"We had a wonderful family holiday at Antonio's beautiful villa. The house and grounds are a stunning location, perfect for relaxing and with a true Sicilian atmosphere – we did not want to leave! Our holiday highlight has to be the incredible home-cooked meals, served to us daily by Antonio and Emma – so many delicious Sicilian meals, fantastic flavours and dishes made every meal a feast for the eyes as well as the stomachs. Thank you so much for everything, it's been a holiday to remember forever! This was a 70th birthday for our family and it worked perfectly. Thank you again!"

Fernando Xavier - Australia | August 2017

"We had a great time in Sicily. Besides the villa, we also had a few nights each in Toarmina and Cefalu. The best feature was the pool which had sun for much of the day. The children had lots of space to run around and the toys available were appreciated. The area around the villa was very suitable. Very pleasant - good swimming spots and great restaurants. The highlight was the trip to Etna. All in all a very positive experience. Thank you for helping us make it happen."

"Sicily was great. Le Dimore dell'Etna was absolutely perfect. It was ideal and was better than the pictures. The food made by the owner, Antonio, was great. I would highly recommend doing the meals that way for such a large group."

Ursula Frey - Switzerland | May 2017

"For most of our group it's been the first time in Sicilie. Whether it's been Taormina, the market in Catania or the Mount Etna, we've enjoyed our stay very much. But the best has been coming back to this wonderful place. We really loved the food, the pool table, the tennis court, the gym and the well kept surroundings.Thank you very much for making our stay so enjoyable!"

Michael Floyd - United Kingdom | April 2017

"Firstly can I say how amazing the villa was, it did not fail to entertain the whole family. Each area was spectacular and we loved the traditional elements and decor. We was greeted with the owner who was so warm and welcoming and even took my mother and wife the next day shopping, and for a cappuccino! We will defiantly be visiting Sicily again, one highlight for us was being able to see red lava coming from mount etna, a view that we loved from the villa. Lastly can I say how easy it has been communicating with solosicily, you have been so helpful with information and arranging any extras for us. We would certainly recommend yourselves in the future. From the moment we booked with you we have been very very happy with everything. Thank you so much, it was a holiday we will treasure!"

B. Vielle - Switzerland | December 2016

"Hello, back from Le Dimore dell' Etna , we express our satisfaction for our choice: the house as a whole was exactly what I was looking for, separate sleeping places, space for children , nicely decorated home and bungalows. We enjoyed the billiard, the tennis, the dining room,the jacuzzi,  the exteriors and garden, the children's area  . We appreciated the Christmas catering, both on the 24th and the 25th, nicely served and good. Antonio's welcome, the owner,with her help,  Anna,   was warmhearted and helpful.  "

Graham Anderton - Italy | September 2016

"The setting of your wonderful home is where our families met for the very first time. Everybody couldn't believe how amazing the villa and gardens are. Such a beautiful welcoming home, helped by the fact yourself and Emma have been amazing. Thank you for making everyone feel welcome and everyone had the same feeling – as this was their home. Helping as you did on our wedding day. Thank you both – amazing host and hospitality. We will only have have amazing memories from our stay here. See you again!  "

Melanie Ellison - United Kingdom | September 2016

"Thank you so very much for looking after us in such an amazing wat. You are a wonderful man! Not only do you cook delicious food for us better than most restaurants but you made us deel at home in your beautiful property and took care of me and my children like family. You also made us laugh lots. We will be back!"

Justin Seldis - United Kingdom | August 2016

"We had a great time at Le Dimore dell’Etna. The villa and lodges were spacious, the facilities were great and most of all Antonio and Emma were fantastic hosts. Antonio showed us around and even took us out for coffee the next day. We wanted for nothing and even though there were 13 of us, the cooking facilities allowed us to eat well. It was lovely being able to pick fresh vegetables and fruit from the gardens for cooking. The pool was always well kept and great temperature and there were plenty of areas to go and be quiet if required. It felt very safe and one literally had to just shout for assistance. Thank you for all of the great work. We really enjoyed dealing with you."

Marie Piraneo - United States | August 2016

"What a great place to celebrate my 60th birthday. From the immaculate grounds, clean swimming pool and beautiful house and cottages, it was perfect for our large family vacation. The children loved the toys and of course the pool. Marie had an extremely easy time with the planing and organizing of the trip. All was great! Thank you for your hospitality. Grazie mille!"

Michael McSorley - United Kingdom | July 2016

"We have had the most perfect family holiday. The villa and surrounding accomodation are ideal for large family groups. And the grounds and swimming pool gave us all the outdoor space and enjoyment we needed .Don't think the children left the pool all fortnight! Grazie mille! PS. I recommend late night in the pool room with the wine cellar close to hand!"

Ilaria Urbinati - United States | June 2016

"Thank you, we had the most amazing time. Such a fun, authentic, tranquil experience. The house was perfect and the grounds kept impeccably – the pool was heaven. We slept like kings! Thank you. We will be back someday! We will always remember this time!"

Your facilities are superb, the pool lovely and the many other seating areas, barbecue area and tables etc. delightful! Hopefully it is just arriverderci! Huw and Becky (the newlyweds!)"

Anne Mette Due - Denmark | May 2016

"Website: Perfect- very instructive with all the information we needed. We were not disappointed when we arrived after having seen the photos and descriptions of the house. Customer Service: Excellent. Very often in contact with Edith and Agata about practical things. They have been very helpful. The welcome pack you sent was a great help. I like the very personal contact I had with you. Le Dimore dell'Etna: We loved the house and the garden. A good choice for a family with smaller children. We enjoyed tennis, the heated pool, ping pong, playground, barbecue area etc. Everything so well kept. Antonio was a charming and helpful host and with Emma he cooked 2 dinners. Excellent Sicilian food. He surprised us with coffee and pasta for lunch when he knew some of us were at home. Emma was such a sweet and helpful person. We appreciated that Trecastagni was in walking or bicycling distance. Sicily: We saw the beautiful attractions and towns, Taormina, Syracuse, Noto etc. And the Etna tour was amazing. The whole family had a wonderful holiday where everything was in the finest order. Our very best wishes."

Susan Steele - Ireland | October 2015

"Thank you so much for letting us stay in the villa for the week. It has been such an amazing experience trying all the Sicilian food and seeing these amazing sights. We really enjoyed it because we felt so welcomed and we will definitely recommend it to all of our friends. We loved climbing Etna, breakfast in Zucchero, the love of Sicilian food, picking fruit in the garden, playing tennis and badminton. Thank you for everything."

Yoshiko Hiro - Japan | October 2015

"Our first time to Sicily and we stayed for one week in this villa before moving to a different villa on west of island. We preferred this villa though :)Very big and beautiful. Sicilians are very kind and friendly and food excellent! We very much enjoyed everything."

Charlie Augello - United States | September 2015

"The Villa was very nice and met the website descriptions. Antonio was very accommodating as well as Emma and responded promptly to our requests. We will use your services again."

Ken Badalamenti - United States | September 2015

"The moment we came to the villa and the doors opened up we knew our vacation was going to be special. This house is amazing! This experience was a moment in time we will always remember. Thank you so much for your generosity and great home-made cooking. Every meal was fantastic! We enjoyed every bite! Your home feels like Paradise – very relaxing – very pleasant! You will always be in our thoughts and payers. We really enjoyed meeting your family and spending time with them. You're very blessed! Thank you, thank you!"

Eytan Rechter - Israel | August 2015

"Our stay at Le Dimore dell'Etna was a real dream. The house and the cottages were all  beautiful and very pampering. The grounds were literally  heaven on earth, where the owner Antonio has take care of every detail. We were there on a family retreat,  and enjoyed the pool,  the jacuzzi,  the tennis court,  the small kids playground and all the hidden beautiful sitting areas. Antonio is the best host one could ask for, available and willing to accommodate any need. He also cooked for us dinners which were both delicious and extremely generous. We highly recommend visiting the Villa."

Collins Family - United Kingdom | August 2015

"We have had such a lovely time; very relaxed and enjoyable. Antonio was such a charming and generous host and made us all feel very welcome and valued. He made the most wonderful vegetarian food and Ken says Antonio's olives are the very best! Thank you for all your kind gifts of granita and ice cream and for your beautiful pool. We hope to return with more family. We are very sorry to leave."

Lucia Benavides - Peru | August 2015

"We came here for the experience of sharing our vacation with the whole extended family. Your home is beautiful and your swimming pool a haven to return to after sightseeing and visiting so many amazing things Sicily offers. You are a most welcoming and helpful host and in addition, a wonderful chef. You could arrange a tasty meal or a light one in the the space of a moment. You were so nice and helpful taking my cousin to the airport without us even asking. Your house and gardens are perfectly taken care of, and beautiful. In addition, your attention to every detail and capacity to create wonderful and comfortable spaces is superb."

Christine Flataker Johannessen - Norway | July 2015

"Thank you so much for hosting our family (11 of us) for 14 days. You have made our vacation in Sicily great in so many ways. First of all the villa, which is beautiful, with jacuzzi/ swimming pool (the children loved it), tennis court (the guys loved it) and the wonderful gardens. Antonio and Emma have been great hosts. We will truly recommend soloSicily to all our friends and family – and we do hope to be back one day. This has been a wonderful 14 days. Thank you!"

Jane Warby - United Kingdom | July 2015

"We've enjoyed staying at Le Dimore dell'Etna and Antonio has been an excellent host. His housekeeper Emma is also delightful and very helpful. Our day trips have included walking up to the crater from the top of the cablecar, going to Taormina, Syracuse and Noto, and visiting the Villa Romana at Piazza Armerina. We've been to the beach at Giardini Naxos, Mazzaró, Fontane Bianche, Lido di Noto and Donnaducata, and liked them all in their own ways."

Lisa Meeks - United Arab Emirates | June 2015

"Everyone made it home safely and everything was better than we could have possibly imagined. First, in terms of solo sicily, I would like to say Edith (from soloSicily) went above and beyond customer service. We had some problems with flights and baggage and therefore, the driver was unable to find 2 of the airport pick-ups. But, Edith kept in touch with me and told me what was going on every step of the way. We then had to cancel a transfer and make some last minute changes when my flights were cancelled and again, she helped me sort everything out. I cannot say enough about how she helped me. Otherwise, our drivers were on time or pretty close and were pleasant and had very nice cars. Now, in terms of the villa, it was just beautiful and just like the pictures. Sometimes, you can't be sure but everything was wonderful. We loved eating at the long family style tables outside and we used the pool, Jacuzzi and tennis courts. Antonio and Emma are lovely people. Each person in my group liked them both. Emma was also very helpful as sometimes it was difficult for Antonio to understand us (as we talk fast). The cooking was great. We all loved the meal and kept on eating even though we were full!! Now, Tita who took us to Etna, the Winery (and the Gambino winery was wonderful, they took such great care of us and we all loved the wine) and Francofonte was lovely and did a great job with all of us. We then had Daniel to drive us to Palermo and San Giuseppe Jato. Palermo was lovely and he showed us all the sights. Again the only reason we found our family in San Giuseppe Jato is because of Daniel. Both of those experiences just made the trip extra special. My mom and I were the last to leave the villa and we were so sad. But, Marco gave me a very nice quick tour of Catania as I could not go to Taormina due to problems/changes to my flight. Thank you so much for everything. In the end, everything was perfect and I could not have asked for things to be different."

Bill Begg - United Kingdom | June 2015

"We've had a wonderful time, truly touched by your discrete attentions and considerations. A beautiful villa, cabins, gardens and pool. Thank you for the delicious meals and lovely wine. Mille grazie."

Lorena Hilsey - United Kingdom | May 2015

"A very special villa. We booked very last minute and soloSicily were very accommodating and helped us with our villa choice. We were celebrating a friends 30th birthday and Antonio did everything he could to make sure our celebrations and stay were unforgettable."

Bridget Newitt - United Kingdom | April 2015

"We enjoyed our holiday and the villa was lovely. Seeing Mt Etna every morning is something else!"

John Heath - United Kingdom | November 2014

"Thank you so much for your wonderful Sicilian hospitality! We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay in your BEAUTIFUL Dimore dell'Etna. The garden is superbly laid out. It was only a pity that the time of year did not allow us to make full use of all the different areas. But we did enjoy several sessions in the jacuzzi and we did taste a variety of the wonderful organic produce of the garden of which the supply seems to be endless.... Thank you so much for introducing us in such an expert way to the “tipica cucina Siciliana”. The fresh olive oil was amazing. All in all a fantastic, restful vacation in a beautiful place with wonderfully generous hospitality. We will return! Next time at a warmer time of the year, although visiting Taormina and other places without crowds or queues does give November something to recommend itself! The ride in the beautiful, classic Cinquecento was as memorable as eventful. Mille grazie!"

Wilson Family - United Kingdom | October 2014

"Thank you very much! I think we all thoroughly enjoyed staying at this villa. One of our best days was the last one when we went to Taormina. Would definitely recommend going there. Although there was not much sun shine. I nearly was in the freezing pool every day. The others were not so keen. Antonio and Emma were very nice and welcoming. They cooked some amazing meals for us and we enjoyed their company. Hope to come again soon!"

Ursula Cholmeley - United Kingdom | September 2014

"The villa is beautiful and Antonio has been the perfect host - nothing has been too much trouble. It is ideally located for visiting Taormina, beautiful Catania, extraordinary Villa Romana del Casale amd of course the amazing veiws of Monte Etna. With love and un abbraccio grande"

Marylou Lea - United States | September 2014

"We had a wonderful week. The grounds are beautiful. It's peaceful & welcoming here. Thank you for the attention you paid to us. We are all blessed to have had this experience."

Maxwell Family - United Kingdom | August 2014

"We loved the villa as soon as we arrived, beautiful surroundings maintained perfectly. Antonio is a fabulous host, so friendly, helpful and a fantastic chef! Emma is also lovely and helpful. The place was big enough for 4 couples/families to spread out and worked wonderfully when we all came together too. We used two cabins in the woods which were like little ski chalets! We were in the pool everyday – didn't need it heated. We got to watch Etna erupt from the veranda which was amazing! Picking fresh tomatoes, herbs, peppers, chillies, grapes etc. from the garden was a great treat and delicious. Antonio's wine cellar is a wonder too, we enjoyed lots of his organic red wine, delicious! Adding, bug zappers to the veranda would be a good idea, we got bitten a lot by mosquitoes – obviously not the host's fault of course! We all had a wonderful time and would definitely return!"

Phil Murphy - France | August 2014

"We loved this holiday. Antonio was a very good host, cooking for us and showing us restaurants. The villa is amazing and the pool is superbe."

Nick Boffin - United Kingdom | July 2014

"We have enjoyed a great stay at Le Dimore dell'Etna! Thank you for your hospitality and your excellent traditional Sicilian cuisine and the best ingredients from your beautiful garden; not to mention the of many high standard. Also for cooping with a mixed party of Brits - Americans with a very variable Italian! Molte grazie per la meravigliosa ospitalità! La vostra casa è bellissima e la Sicilia è affascinante."

Sheila Woodward - United Kingdom | July 2014

"Thank you for an enjoyable and relaxing stay at villa Dimore dell'Etna. Emma and Antonio have been very welcoming and hospitable, cooking us meals using fresh produce from the garden which has been much appreciated! The accomodation has been nice and confortable and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

Peter W. - United Kingdom | June 2014

"Thank you so much for your assistance with a fantastic holiday at Le Dimore dell’Etna, Sicily. Antonio and Emma were delightful and they surprisingly prepared us some lovely meals with wine,(produced by Antonio himself). The Villa itself was perfect, beautiful gardens, lovely swimming pool, and great accommodation. Our Grandson (nearly 3)) loved all the toys provided. We frequently walked to Trecastagni, where there is an amazing coffee shop with lovely cakes, and Pedara, only a 10 min walk was larger than we thought with lots of nice restaurants. We had a lovely trip to Taormina, very smart, although more expensive for food and shopping! Catania was very busy and noisy, with larger shops. We also visited a lovely seaside resort ( Aci Castello). Your Website was very good and Customer Service excellent, so thank you for that. We will definitely recommend you, and when we return to Sicily again we will be in contact with you."

Sheila Woodward - United Kingdom | June 2014

"Thank you for an enjoyable and relaxing stay at villa Dimore dell'Etna. Emma and Antonio have been very welcoming and hospitable, cooking us meals using fresh produce from the garden which has been much appreciated! The accomodation has been nice and confortable and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

Julie Smith - United Kingdom | May 2014

"The villa and grounds were of a very high standard. Antonio, assisted ably by the lovely Emma, were charming hosts. After a long day travelling it was fantastic to be met by Antonio and served lunch and dinner. We also enjoyed his vine. We would recommend this villa without hesitation. Taormina is really worth the visit, as is Acicastello (lovely little seaside town). We also enjoyed scrambling up Etna. If you go for a pizza in town on a Saturday night, it is worth booking in advance as it gets very busy. Enjoy your stay!"

Wulf Family - Germany | April 2014

"Das perfekte Ambiente für unseren "Clan-Urlaub". Ein wunderschönes Gelände und viel Unterstützung durch Antonio und Emma. Grazie mille"
