Gail P. - United States | October 2019

" Che bella villa! We had a lovely stay and enjoyed the surrounding area – Taormina, Siracusa, Ortigia, Fontane Bianche. Our favourite activity was a wine tasting."

Heiner W. - Austria | July 2019

"Thank you for a great experience in this area. Great place, amazing food. We really enjoyed staying here and we are happy to come back!"

Philip P. - Ireland | July 2019

"Talea is lovely, the sitting room is a comfortable space to spend time when it's too hot outside and the outdoor seating areas are a great place to sit and eat and enjoy the breeze. The swimming pool is fantastic, we were almost never out of it. All the facilities you need for a self catering holiday are in place and the location, so close to Nicolosi was ideal for us. We were only a 5 minute drive to the ice cream shop. It's our third time staying in Solo Sicily villas and the website descriptions and pictures always match the places we stay. There are no surprises, the Villas are as good in real life as they look on the website."

Martin W. - United States | June 2019

Gary Scully - Ireland | August 2018

"Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful family home. We have had a wonderful time enjoying the fantastic facilities on your stunning property. We all had great fun in the pool, playing table tennis and chasing lizards. We particularly enjoyed barbecuing and eating outside whilst admiring the spectacular views. We are now ready to return home relaxed and refreshed having made some wonderful memories here in Talea."

Helen Kellet - United Kingdom | July 2018

"What a fantastic time in Sicily and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Good dinners were easy to find in Pedara and Nicolosi. We really enjoyed quad biking up Etna from Nicolosi, be prepared to get very dusty! Taormina was a lovely place to visit and we had a lovely evening watching Rigoletto in the ancient amphitheatre."

Sarah Pomroy - United Kingdom | July 2018

"Thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful house. We have enjoyed staying here and playing in the pool. We also loved looking around Nicolosi and Catania and finding amazing restaurants that we went to time and time again. Thank you again!"

Philip Pierce - Ireland | July 2018

"We had a wonderful time here in Talea, in the pool, on the swing, playing boules and table tennis. Thank you again for opening your wonderful home to us!"

David Kelly - United Kingdom | June 2018

"Fantastic location for exploring this side of Sicily. We arrived after a week spent near Agrigento in South Western Sicily and this end of the island is completely different. We enjoyed trying out the pizza oven and also used the BBQ a few times. Our two year old loved the pool and the boules. Had a lovely day visiting Etna, and another seeing Taormina and Castelmola which were both beautiful. Thank you to Maria and her mother for such a warm welcome to Talea."

Peter Bruce - United Kingdom | May 2018

"Like all of your previous visitors, we have had a fabulous week exploring this beautifiul part of Sicily. Etna wine has been very much enjoyed and the food savoured. Seren and Osian have really enjoyed the swimming pool and all of us have improved at boules. A great week! Will always remain in our memories."

Carsten Boeltz - Germany | September 2017

"Alles war zu unserer Zufriedenheit, Gabriella war stets verfügbar, die Vermieter waren sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend und wir haben uns in der Villa 100% wohlgefühlt. Ein rundum gelungener Urlaub!"

Tessa Webber - United Kingdom | August 2017

"Many thanks for an amazing experience on your beautiful island. We spend an incredible week staying at Villa Talea in Nicolosi in August and could not have been happier. Your website made it easy to find a suitable villa due to the ability to look in different section of the island and see where places were on the map. Booking could not have been easier and your staff were extremely helpful with any questions I had. The pictures were a very accurate of the villa which we found easily and were greeted by the owner and shown around. Everything was explained well and we were also left a lovely welcome pack with tea/coffee/milk and fruit which was appreciated. We were soon settled and relaxing in the beautiful surroundings. Everything was comfortable and easy to  use. The Villa was well equipped and the pool beautiful. The Island offers something for everyone. We explored Temples, Roman Villas and Cathedrals at Noto and Monreale as well as swimming on the beaches of Giardini Naxos, Cefalu, Aci Castello and Pozzallo. We also walked around the crater of Etna and spend a couple of relaxing days by the pool at the villa. Thank you for being part of our experience."

Petra Chrisp - United Kingdom | August 2017

"Villa Talea has been wonderful. Very relaxing – a perfect holiday location. And Sicily is so beautiful!"
