Have just returned from our second two week holiday at Villa Angela.
Must admit I was hesitant to return there so soon after an amazing holiday there last year. I thought that it might not live up to my memories of last year and my expectations as "they" say you should not go back as it is never the same. Well "they" were totally wrong as it was absolutley amazing again.
Katharine, Charlie, Mario, Ayda and all the wonderful staff welcomed us back and could not do enough to ensure that we had an amazing time again. In fact, in our opinion some things were even better than before. Such as the lovely breakfasts of hot and cold buffet. Bacon, eggs and sausage. Delicious fresh fruit (and some tinned), delicious crioisants, freshly baked rolls, cakes, pasteries and gateaux to die for whilst gazing over the stunning views of Mt. Etna. Some evenings the resturant did evening meals too and there was a good lunch menu and a snack menu where you could order anytime.
The rooms are comfortable with large sunny balconies where you can soak up the sun whilst admiring the views. This rooms are serviced by an exemplary team of maids. The shuttle bus provides an excellent service which is most welcome as the hotel is situation on a steep hillside.
Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff who are professional, polite, cheerful and obliging.
We certainly enjoyed the company of Jim Kerr's father and his friends whilst we were there and then Jim himself turned up for a few days.
Taormina is such a beautiful place and we can't wait to go back soon. So I will conclude by saying keep the sparkling beer cold ready for our third return to Paradise.
Thank you all for such a great holiday.
