Just arrived back from one week break at the fantastic Villa Ducale. Our expectations were very high but I can honestly say they were certainly surpassed. It has everthing including views to die for, fantastic breakfast and if you like cakes you are in for a real treat. However, what really makes this hotel so special is the service. All the staff were very friendly and always willing to help. They were passionate about their region and very knowledgeable. I don't generally single out any one single person especially as all the staff were great. However, special mention has to go to Serena who works in the restaurant and is particularly passionate about the wines of the region. I run my own wine school back in the UK and I can honestly say that she inspired me so much that in the future I want to run a number of Sicily themed tastings at my school. In terms of the facilities, our room (room number 22) was very comfortable with a good size bathroom. We also had a good size balcony that included 2 loungers, a table and two chairs, and of of course a fab view of Etna and of the bay. We are already planning a return trip, possibly in the Autumn. Thanks once again to all the staff at the Villa Ducale for such a memorable time.
