A beautiful little guest house. Has a nice outdoor bar, great breakfast, and such friendly staff. Perfect location close to all the best restaurants and shops in Sabie. Would have given higher rating but they only takes cash.

We stayed here 2 nights on our honeymoon and it was wonderful. The hotel manager gave us lots of suggestions on where to drink and eat, all of which was just a few minutes walk away as Sabie is small and Ticino is right in the middle. Greg, the manager, also cooked us a fantastic meal one night, which we highly recommend.

We stayed at Villa Ticino in Summer 2016 at the start of our trip. I agree with what other reviewers say and the hosts are the outstanding feature of this guest house. We had a mix up with flights and arrived a day late. This was completely our fault (and the airlines) but when we explained Felix and Ute did not penalise us for that. Felix was determined that we should see all the highlights of the region and spent ages with my son and husband planning a tour with them. His local knowledge was invaluable and made sure that we know how to keep safe, the best places to eat and how to make the most of our shortened trip. He gave us advice about Kruger too! We loved the breakfast and the guest house, but most of all would just like to thank the hosts

This gets the best score for the hosts alone and the accommodation is a bonus. Rooms are spacious and have everything in that you could need/want. The place is spotless throughout. Felix is truly entertaining and has a lovely sense of humour and is a mine of information. We have never been made to feel more welcome and cared for. Villa Ticino is in the heart of Sabie so a short walk to the brilliant Wild Fig and Woodsmans for drinks and food, Sabie is a small and safe place to be but has loads of different eating and drinking venues just be sure to eat at Ticino for breakfast to see what Felix is cooking up.

The villa does offer only spacious rooms, but also a generous living room to relax sitting in front of the fire place or while reading or playing billiard & chess etc. Besides there is swimming pool and a balcony. And most valuable are the travel tips the friendly and very helpful hosts gave us. They really know their way around and can tell you where to go and what to see.
