My family and I stayed at Fontana Barone with another two families for a week. Our three units were nestled among Palm, lemon trees and an assortment of other tropical plants. The little villas were placed along beautifully manicured paths that provided a wonderful place to stroll leisurely in the complex. The pool, just steps away from the villa, was... More

Fontana Barone is a very small holiday park, 14 semi-connected houses. I have never seen such a clean and organized small park. The staff, Giuseppe (general manager), Kamel, Giancarlo (swimming pool) and Yvonne (speaks also Dutch and French) take well care of you. It almost feels like home! Every morning they bring you fresh bread for breakfast. The houses offer... More

My husband stayed here for 8 weeks whilst working in Sicily and I was lucky enough to visit for 3 weeks. Duplex accommodation and everything was brand new, I am very fussy about bedding, bathrooms and furniture but it was immaculate with excellent facilities. Staff were super friendly and there is a small cafe bar serving great coffee. The pool... More

Really enjoyed our stay here, been here for 2 weeks. Clean rooms, nice people and of course the great Sicilian wheater! The swimming pool is great and there is a bar where you can buy soda's and coffee. Would be great if they add a restaurant, but there's the option to order pizza to make up for that. Overall just...

The place is of superior quality from every point of view: everything is extremely clean, houses are very well equipped, pool is great for kids and the place is very peaceful and quiet. The staff at the reception and at the pool is very friendly... More

A small but very nice complex only 7 double houses. Great pool for kids and grown ups. Very friendly and helpful staff. Houses well equiped, we stayed with a 1 year old baby, they even had a high chair available. The double bed was a bit dented and hard, the single beds were ok.

We spent half term week here and enjoyed it thoroughly. The villa,pool and surroundings were spotless Thanks to Guiseppe and his team for a great stay. We could not fault this place and would recommend it to all. Check out the fresh pan au chocolate and fresh croissants my boys loved them..

We visited Fontana Barone in May 2010 after reading all of the excellent reviews and were certainly not disappointed. The villas are kept in excellent order and equipped with everything you could possibly need. Guiseppe and his team look after you from start to finish, anything you want just ask. Gardens and pool are superbly maintained and the life guard... More
