Very nice stay in a very pleasant villa by S. Martel - France from HomeAway
We strongly recommend Mario's villa. We had a very nice stay in the villa and Mario is a very nice person. The house is well located, in the middle of the Baroque Sicilia - thus you can visit the whole region easily from the house, the driving is never very long to go to all the nice places around like Ragusa, Noto, Modica, Syracusa, Piazza Armerina and we could even go to Agrigente. The villa is clean and surrounded by a beautiful garden with a very nice view on the landscape. The vast and shaded terraces are very pleasant, we could spend a lot of time outside for lunch, dinner, reading, etc... The swimming-pool is nice and big, equipped with a diving board and very convenient with children as you can keep an eye on them when they are in the water. But the most important and valuable was Mario's attention: he came to us to show the access to the villa, he welcomed us warmly with a bottle of wine, cheese and fruits. We were quite unlucky at our arrival with a big storm which caused a long power cut in the villa and in whole area. Mario equipped us with candles, made his possible going to the village to get information about the duration of the cut and he stayed with us in the villa until midnight. Fortunately the electricity came back during the night. Eveytime we needed his help during our stay, Mario has been very prompt and reactive to answer to our requests. Beyond the villa itself, this is certainly the most important and appreciable thing as you feel the attention of the owner of the villa. Thank you Mario for your Sicilian simplicity and hospitality! We keep a very nice souvenir of our stay in your villa!
