Trente's house is a real paradise! We enjoyed all of it: the house itself, the nice kitchen, well equiped and good for people who enjoy cooking, the location and the most important: the outdoor spaces with the pool, the spa, the terraces, the views and all the beautiful trees and plants growing there. Thank you Trente for everything. We enjoyed our stay at you villa a lot!!
Prachtig huis op een geweldig plek. Schitterend uitzicht op bergen en zee.
We hebben er van genoten om hier een week te mogen verblijven.
Het huis is meer dan compleet; volledig ingericht, jacuzzi, zwembad, groot zonneterras en buitenkeuken.
Tuin is een klein paradijs. Zeker een aanrader!!!
Great house in a great spot. Gorgeous views of mountains and sea. We enjoyed staying there for a week. The house is very complete; fully furnished, jacuzzi, swimming pool, large sun terrace and outdoor kitchen. Garden is a small paradise. Definitely recommended!!
We had a great time at Trente and Phillip's place in Sicily. They were extremely helpful, recommending restaurants and things to do in the local area. The place was great - very comfortable and it was nice to cook a meal in the kitchen or bbq outside and enjoy the space. One thing was the extra cleaning/electricity/water bills/wine/towels add a hefty chunk to the final bill, so be prepared.
Our family of five had a really wonderful stay at Trente and Philip's beautiful place. We came for February vacation, and used this as a base to explore Taormina, Catania, and Syracusa. The spot is rural and hilly, and we enjoyed taking walks around the house. My Italian is pretty bad, so Philip helped me to arrange an afternoon at a nearby donkey farm, which our kids loved. All of us loved the hot tub on the patio, and the rooms were clean and pleasant. The views from the master bedroom and single room were beautiful, which doesn't show up on the photos. Do the math to make sure you've accounted for the extra fees (sheets and towels, electricity, etc,) but we found that overall it was very reasonable and certainly worth it.
The house is exactly as shown on the pictures and described in text. What is even more exciting for us personally - is a great olive tree garden, a reealy huge one. Philip is very nice and cooperative. We stayed with kids and enjoyed it. Thanks!
My wife and I had a great stay. The privacy is a huge asset. We were not able to use the pool or hot tub, but the views and quietness were welcoming. The access road was a challenge, but the location allowed for easy day visits to the entire area. Trente’s guide to the area includes the best local restaurants and attractions. Fun place.
The description of the house and area complies 100% with reality and the landlords are very nice. And listen to the tips of Trente and Filip like restaurants, sightseeing etc.
We had an amazing stay at Trente and Phillipe's house. We did get a bit lost coming in - but we were not at all familiar with the area and were driving at night. Trente and Phillipe not only found us and but made sure we had dinner and took us to the wonderful pizzeria in town before escorting us to the house. When they say that the place is MAGIC, they are not kidding. The setting and the house are unbelievably beautiful - the grove of olive and fruit trees, the patio with view of the mountains and ocean, the tranquil feeling of the home. Although we loved exploring the area, we often found ourselves coming back early in the evening to make a nice dinner, listen to Trente's lovely music collection and have a soak in the hot tub under the stars. Everything is clean and comfortable and Trente and Phillipe are very kind and helpful hosts. All the little nearby villages were beautiful and charming. We will certainly be back and recommend this special place to anyone looking for a magical visit to Sicily! And Terre di Trente (the wine Trente and Phillip make) is spectacular.

Als Willkommensgeschenk stehn zwei Flaschen vom eigen angebauten Wein bereit und es darf sich im Garten an den Frischen Füchten (Orangen, Feigen, Kakis, Äpfeln und Kaktusfeigen) bedient werden.

Fazit: Absolut fantastisch.
