    We are very grateful for you letting us stay in your beautiful house. It was absolutely perfect for our family. Besides, the location has been great for seeing all of the south-eastern corner of your amazing island’s history, culture and nature. And finally, for end of October, the weather could not have been better! Your sincerely, The Kroon family, from Estonia.

    Many thanks for such a splendid villa for our annual family vacation. Villa Don Salvatore is beautifully decorated and well appointed. Gabriella is such a gracious host and very responsive. We have enjoyed many glasses of mount Etna wine, champagne and delicious meals on the patio. We very much enjoyed the sight of Siracusa and Ortigia. So many arancini and gelati! This is also a perfect location for day trips to Noto, Agrigento for the Valley of the Temples, beautiful Taormina and mount Etna. We are all very grateful for the opportunity to visit this beautiful island and have made life-long memories. Thank you for trusting us with your beautiful home. We hope to return some day.

    Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la maison, vraiment sympa, et proche de Syracuse, c'était vraiment facile pour nous de nous y rendre rapidement. La maison est vraiment super, il y avait tout ce qu'il faut, nous avions beaucoup d'espace et tout le monde l'a beaucoup aimée. Nous n'avons pu profiter que de la terrasse les midis, pas de la piscine, car c'était encore très froid. Même si la meteo était capricieuse, nous avons pu faire tout ce que nous voulions. Gabriella est charmante, très à l'écoute et de bon conseil, un très grand merci à elle pour sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité.Tout était conforme à ce qui se trouve sur le site par rapport à la maison, c'est très appréciable, et le fait d'avoir une interlocutrice plutôt qu'un site anonyme est vraiment très confortable. Tous, nous recommandons vivement la maison à tout groupe tel que le nôtre, pour son cachet et son confort. Très cordialement, Patricia

    Thank you for the hospitality at villa Don Salvatore. It has been a pleasure to relax in between the lemon trees and the pool, even though the water was still cold. Best wished from Munich

  • Ms. Susanne , Germany

    September 2021

    Anfang September hatten wir, 2 Paare aus Deutschland, das Glück eine Woche im wunderschönen Ferienhaus von Gabriella, Don Salvatore verbringen zu dürfen. Das Haus hat alle unsere Erwartungen noch weit übertroffen. Eingebettet in einem Zitronenhain etwas außerhalb von Syrakus konnten wir unseren Urlaub in vollen Zügen genießen. Das Haus ist spektakulär, eingerichtet mit so viel Liebe zum Detail. Mit 5 Zimmern und 3 Bädern können hier bequem 8 Personen wohnen. Das Grundstück mit Pool ist traumhaft. Im Haus hat man alles was man für den Urlaub braucht. Gabriella ist absolut hilfsbereit und darauf bedacht, dass man einen sorgenfreien Urlaub genießen kann. Einzige Anmerkung: Wir konnten das Haus bei der Anreise nicht finden, da die Zufahrt sehr versteckt liegt. Aber mit Hilfe von Gabriella war das dann kein Problem. Gerne würden wir jederzeit wiederkommen.

  • Mr. Robert , Netherlands

    July 2021

    Thank you so much for a lovely stay! The house was amazing. It was so good we stayed almost the whole vacation at the house and spent lots of hours in the beautiful garden and pool. We would definitely recommend to family and friends.

  • Ms. Daniele , Malta

    September 2019

    Wonderful villa: tastefully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. A well kept garden with a nice pool and terrace . The location is excellent: secluded property, yet only a short drive to Ortigia (Syracuse); there are supermarkets and a few family friendly restaurants nearby and it is a good base for visits to the Cavagrande Del Cassibile, Noto etc. The host was very friendly and forthcoming. Highly recommended.

  • Mr. Damien , Australia

    August 2019

    Very good property, well appointed, peaceful, lovely gardens, pool

  • Ms. Sarah , UK

    We all had a lovely time in this villa + great for a family with young children. Also we had the cook Maria the first night which was fantastic when we arrived.

  • Ms. Aoife , Ireland

    September 2018

    We stayed for 1 week. In the middle we had our wedding (Sicilian-Irish) reception for 70 guests in the garden.....which was beyond beautiful. We enjoyed the buffet beside the pool and dining on the other side of the garden. The patio area was perfect for dancing the night away. We used Navarria catering from Lentini (amazing food and great customer service). For extra lounge areas and lighting we used IES Allestimenti in Siracusa. The house is quite grand, with a country feel filled with beautiful antiques. Big toilets (3 in total)- great for guests. 8 people staying, we were very comfortable. Our wedding ran smoothly thanks to Adriana Smentek Wedding planner 'Chic Weddings in Sicily'. And finally huge thank you to the owner Gabriella!! I would reccommend Don Salvatore as luxuious family holiday and/or an intimate Sicilian wedding venue!

  • Mr. Martin , UK

    July 2018

    Our two families enjoyed a fantastic week in this lovely 5-bed villa, easily the grandest, most spacious villa we have ever rented. Inside the large rooms are very well furnished and decorated, providing lots of character and astmosphere. The large kicthen is very well equipped with lots of storage space. Outside the pool is set in a lovely grassy garden with plenty of trees and shrubs to provide complete privacy. There is a large airy pergola providing shade for a dining area, where we enjoyed many breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The villa is accessed by quite a busy road but is set well back along a driveaway. With a hire car (recommended) the villa was a great base for trips to nearby Syracuse and Ortigia, as well as further away to Noto and Etna. Gabriella was a very helpful host providing information and recommendations whenever we asked her. All in all, a great week with many happy memories.

    La Villa Don Salvatore e' una spledida ed eccezionale location. Il soggiorno presso la Villa e' stato molto di piu' che gradevole ed indimenticabile, e l'accoglienza ed assistenza da parte della proprietaria straordinaria. La Villa e' arredata con estrema eleganza e raffinatezza e l\'ampio giardino con la meravigliosa piscina e' un'oasi di relax. Grazie alla signora Gabriella per la sua cortesia e gentilezza. Torneremo sicuramente presso la Villa Don Salvatore.

  • Ms. Jennifer , Australia

    September 2017

    Don Salvatore is a beautiful, elegant home which far exceeded our expectations. The villa was in a perfect location to access Siracusa, surrounding small villages and beaches. The bedrooms were large and well appointed. The gardens and outside area overlooking the pool is magnificent. Gabriella the owner, was very thoughtful providing a well stocked fridge and pantry. We will definitely return next year. The best villa we have ever rented.

  • Ms. Annalisa , Italy

    August 2017

    Don Salvatore è una villa di charme, molto accogliente ed elegante, con una comoda piscina e un giardino assai curato. Sembra di essere ospiti in una bellissima dimora privata. La fornita cucina e il gazebo consentono di trascorrere piacevolissime serate in giardino. La signora Gabriella ci ha accolto con simpatia e amicizia, dandoci ottimi consigli e facendo fronte a tutte le necessità con molta disponibilità. Il luogo è ideale per godere della tranquillità di un soggiorno rilassante in campagna e delle bellezze barocche di Ortigia. Può essere anche un comodo punto di partenza per visitare mare e terra della provincia siracusana.

  • Ms. Maria Grazia , Italy

    August 2017

    Abbiamo passato una magnifica vacanza in questa casa accogliente, dolce e romantica. Un particolare ringraziamento alla proprietaria per la disponibilità e gentilezza. Speriamo di vederci presto!

    July 2017

    Fabulous villa, large spacious rooms tastefully furnished. WE enjoyed a great family holiday and the warm welcome from Gabriella where nothing was too much trouble.Super pool and outdoor facilities although not enough seating for 7 people at the table and the bbq was a little on the small side.The access can be tricky off a busy road but the villa is set well back in its own grounds.Thank you for a lovely holiday.

  • Mr. Roberto , Italy

    July 2017

    We have always loved Siracusa. Should you also have the chance to spend your holidays at Don Salvatore as we did, you’ll find one more reason to come back! Bagni di colore a Ortigia, tuffi nel mare cristallino della costa siracusana, la pace nell’accoglienza e nell’atmosfera del Don Salvatore.

  • Mr. Peter , Switzerland
