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.

My wife and I and 3 couples of family and friends stayed 2 nights at Villa Ticino in September 2014. The Good The Guest House is centrally located in Sabie. Once you park your car in the secure car park you are easy walking to distance to restaurants, shopping and a grocery store. The rooms all had ensuite baths and... More

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. Felix and Ute were so so helpful - they planned our trip around the panoramic route and recommended stops en route to the airport... More

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.

Ute & Felix are perfect hosts in a perfect place. They will help in anything that you need, give you advice for sightseeing in Blyde Canyon and in Kruger Park, prepare great breakfast and give you the feeling that you are at home.
