I loved our time at Villa Schuler, the last stop on a 9-day trip around Sicily on a small tour with Davisville Travel, led by June Hager. June had checked out the hotel on an earlier visit; if anything the reality exceeded her raves. The best things in my opinion are the hospitality of the owners and staff, the homey feeling, the efficient and warm service, and breakfast on the patio. Also high on the list are the fantastic view (sipping wine from the balcony), the location near the center of town, and the comfortable rooms /beds. I enjoyed reading the history of the Schuler family and the hotel, speaking a little German with Gunther and Christine, and taking advantage of their recommendations on restaurants and shopping. I think this is exceptional value and I hope to return.
