8 of us stayed here in August (4 adults and 4 young children) we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Villa Baroni. When we say amazing location this is because it is literally facing Mt Etna surrounded by stunning views. If you want a central location with lots around you then this is not suitable but if you want to stay somewhere quiet in a beautiful setting then it doesn't get any better than this!! There are 3 or 4 local towns which we visited all within 15./20 minute drive and these were all lovely. The supermarket is around 20 minutes away. You must hire a car if you are staying here.
What really made our stay amazing was the Villa managers Luciano and Antoinella, they were fantastic! They dealt with any questions we had, they drove us around in the evenings and sometimes during the day, they bought us items that we asked for, they were absolutely amazing and made the trip very special for us. They are on call 24 hours a day. I would say if no one in your party speaks Italian fluently then make sure you bring a translating Italian book or something as everyone's English is very very limited. Luckily for us one of our party was Italian so she did all the talking. The villa managers organised babysitting for us on 4 evenings, the babysitter actually did speak English and was lovely. We had the Private Chef one night and all we could say was WOW, one the tastiest meals we have ever had, so much so we booked the chef again for our last night. We were very happy to experience Villa Baroni.
We loved our stay! Big rooms, Big pool, King size beds (not easy to find around vacation rentals), Wonderful Villa and above average service (the caretakers speak basic English but are always ready to help). Very well situated to visit Eastern Sicily! We love Tennis and were able to play almost every day. We definitely recommend it.
Luxury, beautiful, unbelievable location (in the middle of the countryside with a unique view on Mount Etna, though well connected), great service and help by the caretakers.
It was easy to organize excursions through the caretaker at reasonable prices.
Even if the price of the Rent, was higher than many other vacation rentals, it was totally worth it.
If you want a unique experience, it is the place to go.
The house and the area is great. Lot of space and all comodities. Very friendly and helpfull staff. JJust need to be heated in advance as in winter it takes around 24 hours to get warm and it was not done. And you need to pay for the heating by the way. Also ensure you agree in advance the number of rooms the open for you as the ads says 6, aparently they are 10 but it depends on the number of guests.
Our stay was amasing. The surroundings of the house are very nice and quiet and the accomodation is excellent for family/friends vacations (lot of space, closed garden). Very good location to relax and rest (rather than for intensiv tourism).
Two points to improve: lower options price (e.g. 170 euros for personal cooker excluding groceries and wines is too expensive) and put a door on the swimming pool access (broken just before our stay though).
Villa Baroni is better than the photos make it out to be. The Villa was perfectly presented and each of the double bedrooms (with ensuites) were fantastic. We also had use of the additional rooms next to the villa which were fabulous as well. The pool and surrounding area is fabulous. We spent so much time at the villa rather than exploring around the area because we loved it so much.
Thank you also to Luciano for his great hospitality.
