Wir verbrachten die letzten beiden März-Wochen in der Villa degli Allori und waren begeistert. Obwohl w/ des strengen Winters die Landschaft noch nicht wirklich grün war war es doch beeindruckend bei schönstem Wetter von der Terrasse auf den rauchenden Ätna zu gucken. Das Haus ist sehr komfortabel ausgestattet und sehr geräumig (Heizung benötigt man im März noch hat uns 100 Euro für 2 Wochen extra gekostet). Der Standort ist ideal für Weinliebhaber da fast direkt an der Strada del Vino gelegen mit sehr hochwertigen Weinen. Auch für Golfer super da ein excellenter Platz nur 15 Minuten entfernt. Verwalter Alessandro ist super freundlich kann englisch und französisch und hilft bei allen Sachen sofort weiter. Man bekommt sogar ein eigenes Handy um ihn jederzeit bei Problemen anrufen zu können. Alles in allem eine wunderschöne Unterkunft für Leute die fernab vom Rummel auf einem Landgut unterkommen möchten und von dort Sizilien entdecken wollen. Achtung da Haus bereits in 500 m Höhe liegt immer etwas frischer als an der Küste und auch die Vegetation hat etwas Verspätung.
Wir verlebten einen wunderbaren Urlaub. Der Urlaub fängt sofort an. Im sehr schön und hochwertig ausgestatteten Haus warteten frische Blumen, Zitronen, alle Zutaten für ein Pastagericht....und köstlicher Wein vom Vermieter auf uns. Der Vermieter ist unheimlich nett und hilfsbereit. Gibt einem viele gute Tips, organisiert Ausflüge, etc.. Super. Wir machten viel weniger weite Touren wie geplant, da die Umgebung, und das Haus so wunderschön war. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen.
The villa was bigger than it appeared in the photographs and was very comfortable. Fans would be a good addition because the air con wasn't very effective but this didn't spoil the holiday. Lovely peaceful setting with great view of Etna but a car required for easy access. Plenty of good local restaurants and supermarkets. Driving very easy because the roads were almost deserted. The manager and his wife were excellent and couldn't have been more helpful. Etna excursion, Alcantara gorge, Taormina and Savoca well worth doing. Great for a quiet, relaxing holiday. Would definitely return. Villa would also benefit from a microwave, kettle and toaster but otherwise well enough equipped for me, my wife and daughter.
The pool area is beautiful with magnificent views all around particularly of Mt. Etna. Luciano and Antoinetta are lovely hosts and were so good and kind when they took Edith and I to the hospitals in Randazzo and Bronte much thanks to them for their help and care.
Other reviewers mention the road which is bad but we managed by driving slowly and carefully it seems to be a thoroughfare for hikers and horses. The pizzas provided by Luciano were delicious.
We booked the Villa Nocellara, which is next door to Villa Allori but no longer appears to be available on this website, effectively they are the same when looking at the pictures and there are on the same estate, operated by the same people.
After a pretty horrendous drive down a pot holed track which can take up to 5 minutes as it is necessary to drive so slowly, we arrived at the property. The directions provided were very good, with the Villa easy to find.
The Villa is located in vineyards and has a great view of Mount Etna. The swimming pool is opposite the villa, it is not heated but large enough to take a swim. There are chairs and umbrellas but unfortunately no fully reclining chairs or sun beds.
The Villa was well equipped, with clean, fresh bed linen and towels. A couple of items to highlight we did not have a bottle opener (this was quickly supplied) and the air conditioning didn't work.
When making our initial enquiry and after looking at the Resort website we were advised there were Mountain bikes, air-conditioning/heating, a Manager on site speaking English, plus additional services including private cook, tour guide, Italian classes, Cooking classes, housekeeping, Wine tasting, The Manager we met with is very nice but speaks no English and as we don't speak Italian, this made communication difficult and we could not ask questions regarding the local area or services advertised (none of these were offered during our stay).
We arrived after 7pm on a Sunday evening, it would have been nice if there had been a bottle of water in the fridge (maybe wine as it is on a vineyard?) and a basic food welcome pack (happy to pay for this). Instead it was necessary (now dark) to find the local town and something to eat ( we had to resort going to the local supermarket which was thankfully still open).
Due to the track to the Villa and narrow, winding roads it can take 20 minutes to the local Town (Randazzo), 1 1/4 to Catania and 45 minutes to Taormina. Randazzo has a number of very nice Cafes/Restaurants, Street Pizza served in the local square plus there is a market on Sunday mornings.
We did have a very nice stay at the Villa, the location makes for a very relaxing holiday.
the house is very nice decorated, good beds, swimming pool is very simple - needs some restyling. The road to the hous is really very bad, beware of your tires! In the middle of now where
The landlord is a very nice, helpfull man!!!!
