Sicilian country style villa in an enchanting location

Located on a hill overgrown with cypresses, pines and various lemon- and orange trees Villa Maio is the last house at the way out of Rodi Milici. Quietly located in a small lane without through traffic it guarantees restful and stress-free holidays.

In January the wall got a new coat of painting. A nice and friendly atmosphere is awaiting you. The house is decorated with nice pictures and a lot of nice small things – just to make you feel at ease.

Via two entrances you enter Villa Maio. The main entrance is by a wrought-iron gate leading you to the terrace and the front door. From here you have a look into the idyllic garden right in front of the house probably your favourite place during your holiday.

Thank God! Instead there is a meadow with trees and embellished with all Sicilian wild flowers. Mandarin-, lemon- and orange trees, a stunning view of the village Rodi and the surrounding mountains, a lot of space – all is available for you! It is perfect for children`s play and for parents`relaxation as well as for the whole family to have a barbecue or just for social gatherings. Of course garden furniture and a grill are at your disposal.

Through the front door you reach the living/dining room (ca. 45 qm). Two big terrace doors provide for much light in the house. There is a dining table for 8 and for sitting together in comfort cosy seats (two comfortable armchairs, a sofa for 3 and a coffee table) are located near the open fire. The huge open fire integrated into the red brick wall gives country house atmosphere. With the blazing fire this area will be the most pleasant spot in the house especially on cooler days. SAT-TV with all international programmes and radio are available.

By a swing door you reach the anteroom of the kitchen. This room is perfect for the early morning breakfast or the little snack in between. From the relatively small but well fitted kitchen a window opens to the terrace. Very handy for a meal al fresco. From the living area you reach the hall.

The bathroom with shower, WC, bidet and washstand as well as the large bedroom with double bed are facing the garden. Further down the hall you reach the second bedroom with two single beds, after that the third bedroom again with double bed, then the entrance at the back of the house.

Rodi Milici is the ideal location for trips and sightseeing on the whole of Sicily. Via well built motorways and country roads all destinations near and far are reachable within short time. Though Rodi is not located directly at the sea it takes you only ca. 5 – 10 minutes by car to the various beaches (3 – 6 km).

Leisure activities like hiking or cycling are highlights in this beautiful nature. Riding and diving, surfing, sailing and other watersports we can recommend as well. Shopping you go in Milazzo or Barcellona. Here on the weekly markets you will find everything your heart desires. If you have any  questions – just ask us!

Rodi Milici « Messina « Sicily « Italy

Neither is an impressive dome watching over the piazza of Rodi Milici nor is an antique temple waiting for the visitors. But there are three churches in Rodi and though not mentioned in any travel guide they are worth seeing for their typical rural charm. But not for the churches our guests come to Rodi Milici. The village is not depending on tourism. You won`t find souvenir shops or expensive luxury goods round each corner.

It is an original, traditional and vivid Sicilian village. Not even in winter you`ll find the shops or restaurants closed and the pavements “fold up”. You are part of sheer Sicilian every-day-life – 365 days a year!

Many of our guests emphasize again and again the genuine and unaffected hospitality of the residents. This they notice every day in the village either at the hairdresser`s or in the bakery, in the supermarket or the butcher`s shop. – Always you will feel the enjoyable and decent kindness and helpfulness. In Rodi you will get on well even without speaking Italian.
