William and Francesco are the hosts at this beautiful agriturismo in the hills above Patti with views of the Aeolian Islands so be prepared to wind up a sinuous driveway. Our room was large and nicely appointed. The bathroom is accessible. Our dinners were delicious and prepared with local produce as was the breakfast. It is a terrific value. We wished we'd allowed more time.

Amazing in every way!

Posted Jul 8, 2013
Pros: The views, the food, the family who runs it... EVERYTHING!!
Cons: Nothing -- it's perfect
Location: Trips to the islands, beaches, charming towns
The Villa Ricca is situated on a picturesque hilltop surrounded by fragrant trees with mountain and sea views. The trip up the mountain is an adventure itself and the villa is beautiful and full of history. We traveled as a family of eight with a small baby and Salvatore's family welcomed us with warmth and hospitality. They were accommodating in every way. Grazia, the young woman who works at the villa handles just about everything, and she helped us secure tickets for day trips, made sure we had everything we needed and was sweet and charming while working very hard to make sure we were taken care of. The food was some of the best I have had in Italy, and I have been to Italy over 15 times. This is a very special place. The rooms are clean and everything works. We had a memorable experience during our stay at the Villa Ricca and I highly recommend it.

Best choice we could have made

Posted Jun 16, 2010
The views are wonderful, the food was outstanding and the room was excellent. Our large room overlooked the surrounding rural landscape all the way out to Mediterranean and the Aeolian Islands. The food at the restaurant served the best food we had in Italy and tasted like the food my Nonna, who came from the region, cooked . Much of the food is grown locally or on the property itself. The restaurant is very popular with locals, which is a great endorsement. The staff speak English and are helpful and friendly. The hotel is well signed from the Patti Autostrada exit and is close to the Greek and Roman ruins of Tindarri as well as numerous incredible villages perched on mountain tops. For a wonderful relaxing rural Sicilian escape featuring wonderful food, incredible views clean, well appointed rooms, i cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

Posto incantevole a pochi km dal mare...

Posted Aug 24, 2015 on Hotels
Location affascinante, servizio all'altezza delle aspettative soprattutto anche grazie al gestore William, sempre disponibile e gentile in ogni occasione. Ho soggiornato con mia moglie presso la struttura per 6 notti: la camera assegnataci, nella dependance, era molto spaziosa e pulita (unica nota dolente, se vogliamo, la doccia, ancora dotata di tenda in plastica); il per resto la camera era dotata di tutti i comfort (letto molto comodo, aria condizionata, TV satellitare, frigo e bagno molto spazioso). La zona è silenziosissima, cosa che ci ha permesso di riposare in modo magnifico. La colazione presso la Villa è meravigliosa: frutta fresca, yogurt, brocca con spremuta di arance appena fatta, pane e torte fatte in casa oltre ad una buonissima marmellata di agrumi, sempre prodotta in casa. La struttura dispone anche di una piscina con un bel giardino, dei quali però non abbiamo usufruito preferendo andare sempre al mare. Sia la piscina che il giardino sono tenute pulite e molto curate. Abbiamo cenato anche 2 sere presso il ristorante, assaporando piatti abbondanti e sempre molto gustosi, con profumi e gusti tipici della terra siciliana. Struttura che assolutamente mi sento di consigliare.

Geweldige kok en fantastische locatie !

Posted May 26, 2015
Pros: Locatie en de relaxte eigenaar, kok was ook zeer vriendelijk en kookt geweldig.
Location: Ligt gunstig ten opzichte van de Autostrada Messina-Palermo.
Gastvrij, erg vriendelijk en behulpzame mensen. Het eten is voortreffelijk, vooral de antipasti ! Ontbijt is ook goed verzorgd. Zeer aan te bevelen verblijf. Als er een min puntje zou moeten zijn dan is t de in matige staat verkerende toegangsweg met de nodige hobbels en kuilen, maar dit heeft toch ook wel weer enige charme.

un B&B charmant en pleine nature

Posted May 10, 2015 on Hotels
Ce B&B dans la campagne entre Tindari et Patti jouit d'une très belle vue sur les îles éoliennes au milieu d'une nature verdoyante, et de nombreux orangers : un très bel endroit. La bâtisse en pierre et son style rural sont charmants. Son isolement le rend difficile d'accès et limite les allers/retours avec les villes environnantes. L'hôte est sympathique et parle bien anglais, il est accueillant et prévenant sans être envahissant. La chambre est grande et fonctionnelle mais son aménagement et son ameublement sont basiques. L'isolation phonique est bonne. Le petit déjeuner est très bon et très complet, avec des produits frais, des fruits, du pain et du jus d'orange/marmelades maison !

Struttura accogliente con bellissimo panorama

Posted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: Cortesia e disponibilità dei titolari e di tutto il personale addetto. Qualità del cibo davvero eccellente, a fronte di un costo contenutissimo
Location: Dall'Hotel è possibile raggiungere in pochissimo tempo diverse località che val la pena di visitare. C'è solo l'imbarazzo della scelta.
Vacanza davvero piacevolissima, con una spesa ragionevole. Bellissima la vista sulle Isole Eolie
