I agree with the previous reviews, this guesthouse is brilliant with hosts that can't do enough for you if you need them. They care so much about you having a good time, they helped us map out our way along the panorama route and gave us an ice box to keep our drinks cool. I would recommend the walk all... More

Apologies for the late review but Villa Ticino is a wonderful guest house which we couldn't praise enough. The location is fantastic in a completely safe area and there are several good restaurants catering for all tastes within a few metres, in addition to a Spar. The welcome was outstanding and Felix and Ute really can't do enough for you.... More

I stayed for only 2 nights at the Villa Ticino but wished I could have stayed longer. The house itself is very spacious with large public rooms for a relatively small number of rooms. The bedroom was comfortable with an outdoor terrace. The comfort of the house is, however, surpassed by the kind attention of the hosts who do everything... More

We started our journey with a stay at Villa Ticino. The owners Felix and Ute are fantastic hosts. Whatever question we had Felix provided the answer. He gave us a lot of valuable tips and also our first insights on life in South Africa. If you plan to stay in Sabie I highly recommend Villa Ticino.

We stayed at Villa Ticino at the end of a 3 week trip to South Africa. Having stayed in basic accommodation in Kruger was very nice to have such a comfortable stay. Spacious room, lovely bathroom.

Many, many thanks to Ute and Felix for making us so welcome. First class accommodation and extremely relaxing. Sabie is a lovely town. Cindy and Ian are very lucky to live a little closer (few thousand miles closer) than we do.

A very pleasant stay at the start of this South Africa trip. Felix and Ute are outstanding hosts, going out of their way to make guests feel at home. Comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Very nice breakfast, served on the terrace with a view on the lush garden. An unexpected extra: Felix has his own roast of coffee .... wonderful.
