    The house is located on a mountain, in a peaceful area, there is a Sea view. The living room is stylish, with a soul. The owners are very nice and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much. We wish we could have stayed longer :)

    Nothing.

    Lovely accommodation with lots of space and a huge bathroom, the terasse where we had dinner and breakfast is lovely, and the view from the property is spectacular. Maybe not the ideal location to have an evening out in Messina, but perfect for a quiet evening on the terasse and only a few minutes to the ferry.

    Beautiful view. Very relaxing courtyard where you can get away from the city and sit outside. Interesting interior and hosts who speak perfect English. You should stay here if you have a car because it's outside the main city in a quiet residential area overlooking the straight of Calabria.

    The place is lovely: a big estate run by the friendliest, nicest and most welcoming family. The property boasts a stunning view over the Messina strait and continental Italy. There is a terrace, outer decks, lounge chairs and parking on site. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable, with a nice bathroom. The breakfast is Italian style, but plentiful. The location might be slightly difficult to find, but he host will give good direction if called. It was a lovely stay and I would reccommend it to anyone travelling in those parts.

    Small sign at an anonymous entrance was difficult to see in the dark. Could do with a picture on the site for recognition on arrival.

    The views, extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. As good an Italian breakfast as you are likely to get with some extras and a fun coffee machine. Location on Booking.com was accurate and allowed accurate directions from a Sat Nav - probably necessary to find it easily.
