“Great value for money. Ninni is the perfect host!”
Reviewed 29 May 2010

Although not in the center of the resort, Ninni's place is a great option for people looking for a decent and quiet place. The rooms are spacious and clean and they have a large enough bathroom. There are however two things that make the difference: (1) the villa is located in a nice garden, all rooms have their own little terace, there are sitting places in the garden and there is free parking space in the backyard, (2) Ninni, the owner and administrator, is the perfect host, very friendly and helpful, a pleasure to meet him every morning for breakfast for which Ninni was buying fresh croisants and bread- thank you Ninni! His family is running also a good ristorante on the sea side. Conclusion - great value for money, very nice experience!

Reviewed 19 December 2007

This was a totally unplanned weekend trip from Malta to Sicily, while visiting Malta for a week before the Christmas rush. It was going to be mostly a busy shopping trip to Catania but word-of-mouth recommended staying at Villa Archegeta, so we did. And I am so glad of it :-)

The villa is lovely, spacious and cosy at the same time, surrounded by lovely gardens, lots of orange trees all round, and we appreciated having a secure car park, with electronic gates. I felt quite pampered really.

The surrounding area can be completely tranquil. I wish I had my camera with me but, like I said, this was a spur of the moment weekend trip.

I loved getting out of bed and straight into the garden for morning crisp fresh aire, in my boots and coat (well, it was -3C). I mentally escaped to the snowcapped mountain, which you can see clearly from the road where the villa is situated; feels like you are at the foot of Mount Etna, but you are not of course.

It is so quiet out there yet it was easy to get to the local shopping areas and, indeed, if you are an early bird like us, it took us only an hour to drive to Catania for our main shopping, we left 7am and were having hot breakfast with the local market people at 8:15 am at Catania centre. Yummy!

The villa owners were lovely (thank you Ninni) and ensured we were well catered for and well informed in anything we needed. There are no cooking facilities as such at the villa, which was perfectly fine because the owners also run a lovely seaside restaurant, 2 minutes' drive from the villa. Excellent food, specialising in fish and pizza.

Villa Archegeta will be added to my favourite places to stay for short breaks. Love it.

  • Liked — nice villa, tranquil surroundings, easy to get to local shopping centre, seaside, port, restaurants, etc - and secure private carpark. Excellent service and assistance by owners.
  • Disliked — hot water took long time to reach pipes in bathroom but perfectly fine after few minutes
