My husband and I both needed break from the stressful UK, we love Italy so having read the reviews and looked at the Villa Arianna website, we booked a 2 weeks stay in June ……. resulting in one of the best holidays we’ve had. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left Salvo & Pia could not do enough for us, they are a truly fabulous couple who pride themselves on making your stay extraordinary.
Every morning they would arrive with the most amazing breakfast that was served on the large private terrace with a panoramic view of Mazzaro Bay, which for us was a very special way to start the day and not to be rushed. Salvo always asked if we needed anything else and nothing was too much trouble to provide.
The room was of a very high standard and ornate traditional Sicilian features with everything you need, also spotlessly clean, and definitely lives up to your expectations from all the photo’s you can see online. The air-conditioning was brilliant, as was the large satellite tv, all combining with the romantic lighting to provide a wonderful room.
Salvo is fully of useful information and was prepared to go out of his way to book a special excursion to Mount Etna also getting us a discount.
The location is excellent just across the road from Mazzaro beach and round the corner from the funicular, which takes you up to the town centre high above in a couple of minutes, although Salvo showed us an alternative footpath to walk off that breakfast !!!
We would give it 10 out of 10 and have no hesitation in going back again, which we are looking to do in 2014, a truly wonderful B&B and far better than the stereotype hotels in the area.
