Villa overview - owner's description

Mortellito Castle is situated on the sunny island of Sicily, on a hill in the middle of olive trees and lemon trees. On a clear day it is possible to see the Aeolian Islands from its windows. The actual owners, members of an old aristocratic family since 1447 have restored and improved it in the course of the years. The house has a magical atmosphere, a mixture of history and memories of the past, from the exquisite porcelain of “Doccia”, especially created for an illustrious ancestress to the many, signed photographs of the Italian Royal Family, who were friends with the family already since two centuries. The castle is surrounded by several large, sunny terraces, in the midst of palm trees, bougainvillea and giant sterilities. On one of them there is lovely pool (17x7m in size and 2m deep). The interior is filled with elegant furniture of exquisite taste, from the wide dining room to the wonderful library with many old and precious volumes. There is heating as well as air-conditioning. As stay at Mortellito Castle offers plenty of possibilities for excursions in the area, where there are many places of historical and touristic interest. The harbour of Milazzo is only 10 miles away, from there it is possible to reach the Aeolian Islands by steamboat or hydrofoil.

Friends from Denver, USA Jun 2018

Fantastic property with an amazing history. The family has done a wonderful job renovating the property while maintaining it's history. The local staff was super friendly and very accommodating. The property is a bit off the beaten path and that might be a draw back for some people. We saw it as a positive.

Frequently asked questions

Directions and details on how to collect the keys will be emailed to you after you have paid for the booking in full. You will receive full details about your booking including directions to the property and a booking voucher that you need to hand over to the property manager when you receive the keys. In some instances you may need to collect the keys from the property manager’s office or some other location which is not the actual property you have booked to stay in. Please note that the agent provides us with the GPS co-ordinates in the travel directions and we communicate these to you; you should contact the property manager if these are unclear.

The exact dimensions will vary from property to property but the agent has specified that bed sizes are as follows:

  • A single bed is typically 70cm to 85 cm wide and 180cm to 190cm deep.
  • A double bed is typically 140cm to 180cm wide and 180cm to 190cm deep.
  • A “grand lit” is a European double bed, suitable for couples, and can be smaller than the usual UK or American doubles. It is typically 130cm wide but in some instances may be wider; it is approximately 180cm to 190cm deep.

A bunk bed is two single beds, one on top of another. Some properties also have pull-out beds, sofa beds and/or bed chairs; in a few properties the bed can be low in a wooden frame on the floor. The beds often have terry cloth sheet mattress protectors to protect the mattresses; please use them with the bed linen.

Some properties may have a loft as a bedroom: this is usually an open room at the top of the house with sloping walls and mattresses on a low bed or on the floor itself. You need to climb a ladder to reach this room. Lofts are very popular with children but may not be suitable for adults or elderly guests.

If a property has an annexe then it will typically be a building attached to the main property or a small self-contained building. Annexes often have no central heating.

Please note that bedrooms in holiday rentals are usually not that large; you should refer to the floor plan to get a sense of size.

Quality rating: three stars. The agent rates this as a well-kept, middle of the range holiday property.

You will need to pay for the energy and water you use during your stay of which electricity is usually the most significant cost. Charges can be based on a fixed per day rate or by the amount of energy used (e.g. kilowatt hours for electricity). We can’t give you a definite figure but as a rough guide you should expect to pay €10 per day for a two bedroom apartment and €20 per day for a 4 bedroom house in the summer months. Please note: air-conditioning is the biggest factor in any bill; if you leave it on all day and open the windows to let in some warm air when the room gets too cold then your electricity bill will soar. Again these cost estimates are a crude rule of thumb and are for guidance only.

Your local agent will advise you of the extra consumption costs when you arrive; these can include electricity, water, heating, gas, telephone calls, internet usage and any tourist taxes where applicable.
