“A house with a beautiful garden in a peaceful, rural locaction in the hills on the North coast of Sicily”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I stayed here with my 2 teenage sons and 11 year old daughter for a week. The house is very clean and had almost everything we needed for our stay. We really enjoyed sitting in the beautiful garden enjoying our surroundings, with lemon, fig and olive trees, flowers, birds and butterflies buzzing around and the sound of crickets. Half the garden was shaded by a large vine covered pergola and was where we had all our meals. In the distance we could see the faint outline of some of the Aeolian Islands. There was another area outside, a balcony on the first floor, which we could also use for meals and better views of the islands, but we enjoyed the garden so much that we didn't use it. Beware that in the evenings there are mosquitos so take repellent and insect cream for bites.

The house is located about 15-20min drive up a steep twisty road from Patti, on the north coast of Sicily, and is 15 minutes from the auto-route. It meant we were in a very peaceful, rural location, up in the hills. While we were there we enjoyed several visits to beaches, a full day visiting 2 of the Aeolian Islands, Panarea and Stromboli, on an organised boat trip (highly recommend), and a day visiting Cefalu.

Fabio and his family were very hospitable and we spent a day at the beach with them. We met Fabio after coming off the auto-route at Patti and followed him up to the property. He gave us a tablet to use and had marked on a google map all the supermarkets, restaurants, banks etc. For someone who is comfortable with this it would have been very helpful. I am someone who prefers old-fashioned maps and leaflets so didn't find this so useful. Also the internet, although we had least had it, wasn't always very reliable as at times it didn't connect with the server.

I have not given this property 5/5 as the kitchen could be better equipped. As a family we mostly self-cater. There was only a very small oven and I would prefer a proper oven to have been able to roast or bake in. Also more utensils for cooking. A folder of instructions would have also been useful including leaflets/descriptions of local places and beaches to visit. The garden with its views makes this house a property I can recommend. The house itself is straightforward, clean and comfortable.
