“A superb holiday rental property”
Reviewed 25 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Villa Manfredi is a very high quality holiday rental property. Facilities are exactly as described, and just as the pictures show it to be. The living room/kitchen/dining room is exceptionally large, while bedroom and bathroom are generous sizes. Everything was immaculately clean and all in perfect condition - no chipped paintwork here ! Furniture etc is all high quality. There were numerous nice touches from the owner such as two welcome bottles of wine. The large terrace gets the morning sun for alfresco breakfasts.
Visitors should be aware that, apart from Caltagirone itself, places of interest to tourists are all at least 1.5 hours driving time away (less for the locals!). Sicilian drivers are very assertive and it is no place for timid drivers. Towns can be a nightmare for driving, with narrow streets, double parking, and very poor signposting. You need a good feel for the width of your car. However I quite enjoyed the challenge.!

“Great Hospitality”
Reviewed 3 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This lovely apartment is near Caltagirone, the famous ceramic stairs and there are over a hundred ceramic shops. Jane the owner was so very kind and welcoming. She went out of her way to ensure we had a very nice stay. We will definitely be back!

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is a lovely flat, very spacious in a peaceful location. We wish we had stayed longer. We took part in the lighting up of the scalinata on July 25th, an incredible festival.

“Doesn't Get Much Better Than This”
Reviewed 16 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Sadlyi in one day I will be leaving this Paradise after one short but very enjoyable week. The location is ideal. Very close to Caltigirone and other places of interest including Piazza Armerina. Very easy to find your way around. The apartment is spacious, elegantly furnished and beyond comfortable . It is situated in a beautiful area with an abundance of green! Lovely flowers, birds singing, sweet scents in the air. A stunning terrace to enjoy day or night.

Jane and her husband Emanuele were so welcoming, kind and generous. Great information about the area, sightseeing, shopping with excellent directions. I would highly recommendation this apartment to enjoy both day trips and to enjoy the sweetness of doing nothing.

“Lovely home, perfect base for touring the area”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 for a stay in September 2013

The Villa Manfredi is a beautiful apartment, made even more attractive by the hospitality of its owner, an Englishwoman who has lived in Sicily for decades. She provided us with all sorts of inside information about sights in the area. Caltagirone is a lovely Baroque town with a rich ceramic tradition. In addition we were able to drive to many wonderful places on day trips. It was so nice to come home in the evening to a lovely apartment.
