“Wonderful home base to explore Sicily”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We spent a week at Le Case del Principe with a group of 25. It was a wonderful home base for us and allowed us to do day trips to other cities around Sicily. The facilities are comfortable and the land is beautiful. Some days, we just spent at the villa enjoying the pool. The outdoor dining area was my favorite part of the entire place, and it's also where we spent the most amount of time as a group.

My only complaint was about the quality of the kitchens - the appliances were not in great condition (broken dishwasher, stove didn't properly match temperature it was set to, fridge was on a switch and accidentally got turned off one day, etc). This, however, was a minor inconvenience, and we loved our stay overall. I'd certainly recommend going here, especially with a large group.

“Exceptional expirience”
Reviewed 5 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a reunion, 24 people. LE CASE DEL PRINCIPE offers exceptional facilities. Located on a huge private estate, but close enough to the vilage and the sea. About 45 min drive from the Catania airport. Swimming pool, gardens, playing areas. All villas nicely decorated. Special thanks to Monica and Maria.

“Heaven”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

After a week's stay at Le Case del Principe in Taormina, Sicily, I cannot get the place out of my mind. Beautiful surroundings, lovely verdant garden, cool rooms in summer, a wonderful rural feel. You can not make a mistake staying here.

“Specacular week of relaxation”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We took 20 of our friends and secured the whole villa for ourselves which was great fun. Monica and Maria looked after us very well and cooked stunning food. The villa has the most wonderful setting, the pools are wonderfully relaxing places. We recommend the villa for anybody wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and who enjoy rustic, peaceful and well maintained accommodation. Thank you Gabrielle for the wonderful villa!

“Amazing Property and Staff!!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My wife, myself, and our families stayed at the property for a week in July. We had our wedding reception on the property towards the end of our stay. It was amazing. The property was so tranquil and picturesque. The staff was friendly and very attentive. Gabriele, Monica, and Maria made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. Maria had a wonderful meal prepared for us when we arrived after a long day of travel. Monica was so helpful. She checked in with us everyday to make sure that our guests were happy while at the estate. And finally, on our wedding day, the staff worked with our wedding planner to pull off an absolutely unforgettable wedding reception. I would whole-heartedly recommend this property. Thank you Gabriele, Monica, and Maria for your warmth and hospitality. We had an unforgettable time!!!!

“This was a magical, wonderful place for a wedding and a holiday!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My daughter and her now-husband found this property online and thought it would be perfect for their designation wedding. And it absolutely was. Le Case del Principe, its owner and the staff exceeded all of our expectations. I wish I could rate this property more than a 5!!! We had 31 guests in total, including the bride and groom's immediate families and their closest friends. The property was magnificent. The housing arrangements were perfect for everyone, highlighted by goat and sheep herd traipsing by our windows each morning and evening! The two pools were wonderful, well maintained and provided an unmatched place to relax and enjoy Mt. Etna and the surrounding mountains. The playground behind the pool was perfect for our 6-year old guest too!

We were cared for exquisitely by the Amazing Monica, the property manager, and had three spectacular, authentic, 5-star Sicilian meals, including the food for the wedding reception, by Maria the Magnificent. We wanted to put both of these remarkable women in our suitcases and bring them home with us!

The arrangements for the wedding and the wedding reception were handled by Monica and the staff down to every detail to where the event was an unforgettable, magical day that nobody in attendance will ever forget! It just could not have been more amazing or spectacular.

All in all, this was a wonderful week of fun, relaxation and joy. Le Case del Principe is the perfect venue for a destination wedding or a gathering of an extended family or friends, you will be welcomed warmly and will feel very much at home in this magical and amazing place!

Magnifico!!!!

“Le Case del Principe”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We had a wonderful stay at Le Case! The tidy rooms, relaxing patios and pool areas, rustic scenery, and the fragrance of orange blossoms from the nearby groves- all in the shadow of Etna made for an unforgettable holiday. Of course the icing on the cake was the indefatigable concierge, Signora Monica. She was always at our beck and call with a smile on her face.
Can't wait to return!!
