We had a great experience and our host was magnificent. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay and parking on the nearby street was plentiful. Restaurants near by with delicious fish dishes. A swimming spot towards the point of Messina (recommended by the host) was worth it too! Would visit again if we were in the area.

Everything about our two days here was delightful. The house is elegant and simple and had everything we needed. We loved Ganzirri and its relaxed and friendly feel, with good restaurants and shops for everything you are likely to need. Although there is a better sandy beach a kilometre away, we liked being able to swim from the stony shore a few metres from the house. Francesco was very helpful and even came to the station to collect us, which made all the difference on a hot day! We hope to return soon.

My stay with Francesco was lovely. He had arranged for us to be picked up from the port and we were given a little tour of the surrounding area. The apartment is lovely, located just steps the beach and restaurants. Inside the apartment was very well furnished and wonderfully presented. It had been cleaned just before we had arrived so it was pretty spotless. There is one sofa, two single beds and a double bed so my party of 4 people was very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked and very easy to use (and very clean) and the bathroom was very well appointed. Only downside is that there is a limit to how much water can be used on a daily basis but it is a fairly generous amount and had we known before we wouldn't have run out as we did. However this was a small complaint in an otherwise excellent stay. Overall an excellent experience, we felt right at home! Thanks Francesco :)

Despite a very last-minute booking request and Francesco being out of town, he managed to accommodate me and my three friends perfectly! One of his friends Mimmo kindly picked us up from the port in Messina while another, Felicia, cleaned and set up the apartment to an extremely high standard for our stay. Together they also offered lots of tips and advice for us to make the most of our stay, which came in very handy! The area was picturesque and offered an authentic Sicilian seaside experience, although quite out of the way with respect to Messina and Torre Faro - these can be reached by bus within about half an hour and 10 minutes respectively. All in all we had a lovely stay and were so pleased that our first few days in Sicily had turned out so well at such short notice. We would all highly recommend staying with Francesco!

Francesco was very kind at meeting us. Though we came late in the evening he waited for us,showed us everything and even made a small excursion around the district. As for the house, it's very comfortable and near to the beach. There was no problems with packing the car. I do recommend this place for a family holiday.

Francesco was a wonderful host, very helpful and friendly. He gave us plenty of tips for sightseeing, communication, eating and interesting places in his area. Ganzirri is a charming village and the Francesco apartment is a real comfortable apartment with everything you need for a holiday. Francesco helped us with everything even solved our problem of getting to the place and finding buses which are a little problem between Ganzirri and Messina. But that is the only one problem. Our stay in Francesco house was a great time!! If you are searching for a place with great people, views, eat, sun and apartment to spend nice time and rest just choose Francesco house!
