We have just returned from a week and what can I say it was the best villa we have ever stayed in. Santi the owner came to see if we had settled in ok and he had left us a lovely welcome basket for when we arrived. He also advised us on places to eat and where to go. The surrounding area is lovely and of course you must visit the village where The Godfather was filmed!
All in all I would highly recommend this villa, if you want peace and quiet and fantastic facilities then book it!! We will certainly be returning.
We have rented a few villas over the years. This one is the best we have had. It is very spacious and comfortable. The outside area and pool are great. The information pack we received was very helpful. There are fantastic views and the nearby villages are a must. The locals were very friendly and helpful towards us. We would highly recommend Aloha Mare and Haccabbanna both are restaurants in S. Teresa Di Riva.. Tanja who met us after a very long delay was so helpful. She stopped off with us while we done some shopping and took my husband to a tobacconist as the shops were shutting in half an hour of us meeting her. Then she took us to the villa where we met Alberto who was also very friendly.
My wife and I and our two adult daughters spent 2 weeks at Villa Oasis in late June / early July. The booking process dealt with by Santi was easy and we were met by Tanja and guided to the villa, as even with a satnav we would never have found it. It is situated about 20 minutes from the coast up in the hills with stunning views over the valley and towards Etna. The villa itself is very comfortable with everything you need but what really sets it apart is the outdoor living space - so many seating areas in shade and sun, a dining area, an outdoor kitchen, barbecues, and, of course, the pool and patio area. In more than 20 years of villa renting it is the best outdoor area we have ever had. The pool was cleaned and treated 3 or 4 times a week by Alberto who would quietly appear at about 7 am and disappear before most people saw him! We were treated to a welcome pack and unexpected but much appreciated croissants from Alberto every few days. Both Tanja and Alberto were always available and very helpful in providing information about the local area. They are superb hosts. Santi visited after a couple of days to introduce himself and offer his assistance should we need anything.
There are several restaurants within a few miles at Casalvecchio and Savoca so there's no need to travel miles. An Etna trip is a must - we drove to Piano Provenzana through Piedmonte Etneo, Linguaglossa and through beautiful woods. Much quieter than Refugio Sapienza.
There are different things to see and do in the area and we paid a few visits but the villa was so quiet and comfortable we did spend a lot of time there!
A definite recommend!

If you want peace and quiet, away from your busy lifestyle , then this is a must.. Great villa , up in the mountain. About a mile from a little village, and about 3 miles from savoca, which is a lovely small town with great eateries. The villa is perfect. A true must to visit this place. Thanks very much.....
