3 bedroom holiday villa in Sicily, Italy, with private pool
January 2020

I for one was sceptical (as always) about the villa and the surroundings, so we had a bet that if it lived up to my expectations I would be the one placing the review. And so I am here writing as promised because in one word WOW!!! I had a blast going out to bars ( jugga jugga jugga), eating REAL pizza to my hearts content, going on nature hikes and best of all....being able to return to a cozy villa with its modern mix and traditional setting to relax. The pool?....I have nothing more to say than.....Tha Bomb!

2 bedroom villa with private pool in Sicily, Italy
January 2020

Villino Malva House is despite its small size, very suitable and spacious enough for 4 people. Already when you enter the site you will be struck by the cozy feeling. The site is large and well maintained and has a good-looking swimming pool. Here we could do enough about the sun on the terrace around the pool. The privacy is guaranteed because of the grounds surrounded by greenery. The house itself is well maintained, and we have always been well served by the cleaning team and where necessary we were allowed to use the caretakers service. Our presence on the beach was an experience by itself where we were able to enjoy our own location, the many meals and local drinks, in addition to the

A beginner's guide to villa holidays in Italy

Discover the masterpieces of Uffizi GalleryPalazzo Pitti, Duomo and Florence Cathedral with its exquisite Renaissance dome. Of course a trip to Tuscany wouldn't be complete without seeing the famous tower of Pisa.

Sardinia boasts 2,000km of coastline and is the second largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily. Home to stunning white sand beaches and coves, bordered by vast mountains and mysterious Bronze Age ruins, dive into the piercing blue sea and enjoy a traditional Italian coastal escape.
