We had the most wonderful week at Villa Ispica - it’s a real find! The property is incredible - I’ve never known such an amazing villa pool, with such great facilities and there was everything we could need in the house itself, which is simply stunning. The owners were so welcoming and helpful - organising taxis and vineyard trips as well as helping us navigate Sicilian websites to locate our lost luggage! On arrival we were greeted with an incredible spread of traditional food and local delicacies - so much so, there was little need to venture to the supermarket until the following day. We hope to be back very soon! August 2019

We received excellent service from Essential Italy and Villa Ispica is spectacular - it exceeded our expectations and the pool has spoilt us for swimming anywhere else! The owners made us very welcome and had set out a feast for our arrival which was very much appreciated by all in our party. We felt as if we were parting with friends as we said our goodbyes to the owners. We would highly recommend the excellently equipped Villa Ispica. Essential Italy always replied promptly to any query and the ease of communication meant our holiday was stress-free. May 2019

Excellent. Clean, spacious and modern. Beds were very comfortable - like sleeping at home. Pool was excellent. The Vamoos App is very very good and extremely helpful. Daniela was very helpful and responded quickly. I found using Essential Italy to be the best experience I’ve had booking a villa abroad. The additional information provided throughout was very helpful and made the holiday stress free. The App is a brilliant idea and works really well.

We had a wonderful holiday in every way possible. From easy booking, to a simply amazing villa to a very attentive and supportive team in Sicily - a great combination that made for a brilliant Italian get away. Thank you.

The villa was absolutely stunning.... what a wonderful place to stay. Every part of the villa was perfect... the AC in each room was much needed and appreciated, the pool is the highlight - it is amazing - the whole place was beautiful with lovely views. Just superb. This holiday was a first for us as we had not been somewhere new for some time, so booking this villa in Sicily was a new holiday for us all. The whole thing experience from start to finish was wonderful... the owners of our villa are very proud of it - and have taken great care in every little aspect of looking after us as guests and that made it more memorable - we felt special. Thank you every one.

Villa Ispica was lovely - very spacious, immaculately clean and well appointed. The gardens and pool area were particularly nice, providing lots of different areas with sun and shade to allow us each our own space. The owners of the villa were also lovely and very hospitable - they bought a selection of local specialties for our supper the day we arrived and baked several lovely cakes for us during our stay. We were impressed and completely satisfied with all aspects of our experience with Essential Italy. We would highly recommend Both Essential Italy and Villa Ispica to anyone considering a holiday in Sicily and we will definitely use the same company again when we are next planning a trip to Italy.

Fantastic villa which was fully and accurately described in the website advertising. The owners were exceptionally thoughtful - providing us with a lunch on arrival and a gift of local pastries during the week. The villa and it’s facilities were exceptionally clean and equipped to a very high standard. We would certainly recommend Essential Italy to anyone wanting a relaxing and trouble free holiday experience. Sicily this year - Puglia next!

Beautiful and very clean and practical... rural and quiet. A lovely holiday at a super location with perfect weather for end May early June. Also a good location to see various local sites and cities. Ten out of ten!
