For 10 fantastic months of our lives, Villa Happy Holiday in charming Fontane Biance, has been our home.
It has been the greatest!

My husbond worked online from the house -towards Norway (our home country), our son went to the local school in Cassibile and I have been a "scilian house wife". We had high expectations when we left Norway to live here, but still this has all been so much better than we dared to hope for.

During this period we have lived and loved the spacy, practical, well-equipped house, the wonderfull pool, the beautiful, exiting garden, this interesing area, the whole island that we have travelled - and most of all, the wonderforull warm-hearted people of Siciliy. In particular, the family who owns Villa Happy Holiday - the Nativo familiy. They have helped us on absolutely everything we needed assistance with, always with a smile and hugs. Thè fact that Marcellos English is brilliant, is a rare gift here, and at great help for the time we still did not understand too much Italian.

In this almost one year-long-wonder-experience we have had visits from lots of friends and family, collegues and the press. Articles were written in several Norwegian magazines. Everyone who came to see us were so impressed and happy to stay in our villa.
No wonder.

Of course, a vacation in this lovely house, is a gift to everyone.
With everything that Siracusa, Noto, Taormina, Cavagrande, Avola, Etna, Enna and Agrigente have to offer of beauty, nature, culture, great food and history, Sicily is an exellent choice for almost everyone.
And did I mention the fantastic weather? As a pale Norwegian, I have for the first time been naturally tanned all year round!
.
Villa Happy holiday off course, is at the strongest recommended to everyone who dreams of a life-time-experience, wheteher it is for a week-end, a week, a month or for a year.
Thank you ever so much, dear Nativos!
We will be back pretty soon

“Excellent Villa, Helpful and Friendly Owner - Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Had a wonderful 10 days with wife and two teenage children at this Villa. We were greeted with a charming and friendly owner to show us around the house and who also provided some provisions to assist us such as milk, fruit etc. The pool and outdoor space was great for relaxing and was cleaned during our stay. The Villa is well located and well furnished. Plenty of space for everyone. The wifi is also great.

The Villa is a short 5 minute drive to Cassible and about 15 minutes to Siracusa and Ortigia. We also visited Etna and an aquapark at Etnaland - about just over an hour away. Locally we went to Fontane Bianche and La Pineta beaches and preferred the latter - less commercial. We also visited Siracusa / Ortigia often where we also able to swim off the rocks and take a boat trip.

London Gatwick lost our luggage bags which did not get our holiday off to a good start! The owner Marcello was very helpful and kept in touch with us to offer his help in contacting Catania airport for us. When the luggage bags were located (damaged) 3 days after our arrival, Marcello drove us to the Airport and dealt with the airport staff for us handling our claim - this was a great help and he clearly went far beyond the call of duty for us. We have stayed at many other holiday homes and never met such a friendly and helpful owner as Marcello. So much so that we would view him as a friend rather than someone we just rented a house from.

Marcello will send you some helpful pages of places to visit and restaurants etc. One he does not mention is Zuma in Ortigia at Via Francesco Crispi. Serving a good mix of local food for those who want this and plenty of choices for teenagers who do not. The staff are helpful and friendly, the portions more than enough and the quality of the food was great. Another good restaurant not mentioned was Il Cenacolo in Ortigia near the main square at Via Del Consiglio Reginale. Owner was friendly, food was excellent and service great. We also enjoyed drinks and food at Cafe Apollo opposite the Temple ruins in Ortigia.

We enjoyed our time here and wish we could have stayed longer. Recommended.

When I decided to start my new venture on lettings, I promised myself I would do my best to be the kind of host that travellers are supposed to meet during their holidays abroad. I know how you feel when you are abroad and get no support, kindness around you. Well ... this will never happen to my guests :-)

Thanks indeed for your lovely, detailed review; that makes me understand I must be doing pretty well.

Next year my guests will also be provided with bikes (free additional service).

It was nice having you at "HAPPY HOLIDAY" VILLA and I do hope to see you again soon !

“Another great vacation at Villa Happy Holiday”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were extremely satisfied with our stay last year, so we booked this year as well. It was an equally great experience. Marcello is the perfect host, and always available! The villa is perfectly located for exploring the south-east of Sicily. We will be back next year as well.

I suppose this is the best review that a host can receive from hs/her guests. Having stated that you consider me as "the perfect host" and having appreciated your holiday in our place make me very pleased, BUT the fact that I have received such a positive review from guests who had already visited us last year and decided to spend their holiday once again in our Villa this year make me double pleased. Thanks indeed. It would be a big pleaure to see you again in the near future :-)

“Perfect house at nice location with serviceminded owner”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We were 4 adults and 3 childern who stayed at Villa Happy Holday to celebrate my wifes 45 birthday. The house fullfilled all our need. Perfect pool with nice patio where we ate lovely brekfasts as well as some lunches and dinners, when we're not dining out. The house was perfectly planned with a base floor including a well-equiped kitchen, a washing area and a big living room. Upstairs accomodated 2 large bedrooms perfect for us 2+2 adults, 1 kiddie bedroom which our 3 children loved and one extra bedroom where we stored all suitecases (but could have been used by two additional persons without problems). The Wifi was fast and up 24/7.

At arrival the owner Marcello ensured that we were happy with everything and gave us valueable advices. We're therefore very happy with our holidays, just as the name implied.
