The two brothers who run Villa Rica are the nicest people ever. We explained we needed some vegetables after living off sandwiches for a couple of days - one brother is a vegan and what a meal was rushed up late in the afternoon for us. At supper the restaurant was closed for their night off (an alternative restaurant was...

Very quaint location with great views albeit a bit hard to find based only on signage. Very hospitable proprietors and excellent food, including fresh fruits from their own orchards. The room and bathroom private bath were quite spacious.

The apartment wasn't clean there were cobwebs and in the third bedroom the sofa bed and camp bed smelt damp and the sheets smelt damp. There was no shower just a hand held...

We were just going to use this as a base to discover the Aeolian islands but in the end we stayed longer because it was so idyllic! The landscape and views are stunning and the house itself offers the perfect terrace for meals, reading, relaxing and sunset drinks! William and Francesco are fabulous hosts and make you feel immediately welcome...

We stayed at Villa Rica for 3 nights of our two week honeymoon in Sicily. The house is situated up in the hills approx. 15 minutes from Patti (by car), the perfect place to escape the tourist traps and, a great base to visit the Aeolian Islands from. The views of the surrounding hills, fields and aeolian islands are truly...

We stayed here for one night in two chambers which were in a separate building close to the main building and swimming pool.

You are surrounded by nature. The...
