Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at Villa Anna as a family of five (children aged 10-15) and found it a very pleasant base for exploring the North Eastern corner of Sicily. The villa was well situated - private and in open countryside, but within easy access of Villafranca and the motorway. It was clean, well equipped and everything was pretty much as advertised. There was internet access available but not wi-fi, and there were no English language channels on the TV. The patio had lovely views and we made use of the brick BBQ too. There was lots of parking space in the grounds for a car but take care if you have a wide vehicle as the entrance was quite narrow. We were fine in a large 5 seater Fiat 500. Everything worked fine during our stay, and the owner was excellent in his communications and information. Our security deposit was returned very quickly. In all, highly recommended if you want to explore this part of Sicily (Etna, Taormina, Tyndaris etc)

About the neighbourhood
Villa Anna is set in a quiet haven yet close to the spectacular beaches and attractions of eastern Sicily. Just 5 minutes drive (2 km) down the hill are the coastal towns of Villafranca Tirrena, with its sandy beaches, shops and restaurants, and Ortoliuzzo with its beautiful sandy beach. Here you can sunbath or swim in the crystal-clear warm waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea which make swimming pleasant from mid-April through October. The villa is within easy driving distance from the breathtaking sandy beaches of Milazzo (25 mins drive) and Tindari (35 mins drive), with its extraordinary sandy “tongues” (a sandbank stretching 1.5km into the sea which is now a nature reserve). Just past Tindari is the charming seaside resort of Capo d'Orlando, with its magnificent sandy beaches and turquois... more
