This place is brilliant. Go there.

OK, you might want a bit more detail than that, I suppose. The reasons you should go there are:
1) It's as beautiful as the pictures look.
2)The owners are SO nice - they brought us sweet ricotta pastries on our first morning and basically give you a book full of details of local activities (sailing, local festivals, etna tours, private chef to come in and cook for you) and tell you which are the best places to get pizza from.
3) It has AC in the bedrooms and the beds are comfy
4) The owner stocks it with a selection of really nice and very reasonably priced wine and you pay at the end for how much you've actually drunk.
5) Staying there gets you free entry to a really nice lido
6) You have a choice of terraces dependending on mood
7) There are four non bedroom social areas (including the two terraces) so plenty of space for everyone
8) They provide bed linen and towels
9) There are an adequate number of hooks in the bathroom (a personal bugbear)
10) It's a really short walk to the nearby public beach!

Things to keep in mind if you're thinking about booking: one of the double rooms and the twin room have an interconnecting door and the wall between them has a couple of inches gap at the top so you can hear what's going on in one from the other and the double is only accessible by walking through the single room, so could be an issue if privacy is a concern - they also share one AC unit between the two; whilst there are two bathrooms, only one of them has a shower, so it can take a while to get everyone showered and out; the staircase up to the top floor is quite a tight spiral and might not be ideal for anyone with mobility issues; the nearby public beach is really rocky - you probably want swimming shoes (we were the obvious tourists because we didn't have them); and finally, you really, really won't want to come home.
