If you want to get away from it all then here is the perfect spot, The couple who run the place are absolutely great. One morning she brought us breakfast pizza :-). There is a BBQ there as well. Had a treally relaxing few days. The Villa is fantastic just what you dreamed of when you go to Italy

We have just come back from a weekend in Avola, where we stayed at the Villa. Accommodation was superb and the hosts were super hospitable. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. They kept coming with food for us, and even gave us a couple of dozen lemons to take home. Location is great if a little difficult... More

We'd already read here that the hosts were friendly and welcoming, but were quite overwhelmed when what we took to be an initial supply of freshly made goodies kept coming day after day! The large banana, olive and citrus tree-filled garden (plus papyrus plants, obviously) offer an oasis of calm just minutes from the autostrada exit and the town -... More

We spent nice holidays at the Villa del Papiro. The owners were very friendly. The garden was pleasant too. We were all the same disappointed by the outside environment but felt safe inside with our children. Mosquitoes in April too so bring insect repellent-cream with you! Old-fashioned decoration inside and dark.

The Villa is just off the highway, minutes away from the seaside and from Avola center. The hosts were amazing and took great care of us. Accommodation is of good quality, spacious, clean and well equipped for a good Sicilian holiday. We really enjoyed the olive grove at the heart of the premises. Will definitely return... soon!
