First of all : fantastic people, honesty is a great quality. Always ready to make it a fantastic week for us. Thank you Fabiola
We had a incredible week in and around the villa. The pool and all around was really great.
The location was breathtaking with incredible olive trees and a fantastic view on the mountains and perfect privacy
Great outside covered terras where we enjoyed all of or meals
Not far from interesting villages to visit
I would recommend it to everyone
Absolutely Beautiful and Conveniently Located !!!
My family of 5 enjoyed every minute of our time at this property. The home, the grounds and the swimming pool were all top quality, beautifully designed and spotlessly maintained. The property is very secluded about two minutes from the main coastal highway. It is in the midst of an olive grove and set in a wide and sunny valley surrounded by thousand meter tall hills not too far away.
The property is well located to allow day trips to local beaches (10 to 20 minutes), the historic coastal city of Castellemare de Golfo (10 minutes), the ancient ruins of Segesta (25 minutes), the cable car to the stunning ancient hilltop city of Erice (45 minutes) and the city of Tapani just beyond (visit the salt pans and the museum of optical illusions there).
We took our excursions early each day to beat the crowds and the heat, had lunch and relaxed by the pool in the afternoon, then headed to the small coastal towns at night. It was a perfect arrangement.
Lazy summer sun older family holiday
The property is absolutely stunning, as was its setting. Really close to Palermo (45 min drive) and the beautiful area of San Vito Lo Capo (also 45 min drive away). The pool area / gardens in particular made it for us, so relaxing and completely private. Really clean too.
A few things to flag to the owners though that would make a future stay better:
1) Property guide - when we arrived, a number of the services were not switched on (gas hob, boiler, etc.) which meant that we had to contact the owner and get them to come out and help us. If this was all switched on in advance of arrival, walked through on arrival and documented in a property guide this would save time / hassle for all.
2) Hot water - it was not possible most evenings for all 6 of us to have hot showers. I presume this is down to the boiler / water tank set-up, but this has to be an easy one to fix and would make a big difference to guest experience.
3) Fuse blowing / electrics cutting out - we think this was linked to trying to cook, shower (the water was on an electric pump) and use the aircon at the same time. Should also be a quick fix though.
4) Other - more wine glasses are needed to be provided.
Worth every single penny!!!!
My family and I returned to Italy to see some of Scicily, all I can say is wow to this house. Fabiola, her sister and boyfriend were so sweet to us and made sure we had everything we needed. They were always available for any questions and honest about all that was expected. The house itself is elegant, well maintained and sits in one of the most beautiful areas. Its just outside of town so its quiet and private. Inside there is plenty of room both in the bathrooms and the bedrooms, there wasnt anything inside that didnt work at 100% The sitting and cooking areas are perfect outside and really you wont want to ever go inside! Thank you again to Fabiola and her wonderful hospitality. We will definatley come stay here next time we come to Castellemarre Di Golfo!!!
Family Friendly Home
Beautiful house with all the comforts of home! Very family and kid friendly. There are several outdoor spaces to lounge and enjoy the lovely garden planted with fruiting pomegranate, fig and olive trees. The moon rises over the mountain ridge that you can view from the poolside cabana. The house is clean and quiet and comfortable. It is very lovely, we enjoyed our time here!
A little piece of paradise in Sicily!
What a little piece of paradise we have found in Sicily! We have just returned from 2 fabulous weeks in this beautiful villa and we can honestly say it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. The villa is decorated to a high standard and very well equipped and the gardens are immaculately maintained. The pool was perfect and very clean with a Jacuzzi at one end and a diving board which my husband and son loved. We made pizzas in the wood fired pizza oven in the garden and roasted figs picked from the fig trees. The owner Fabiola is so lovely and the few problems we had were sorted out immediately. The villa is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains but only a 10 minute drive from Castellamare del Golfo which is a typical Sicilian town that comes alive at night with a lots of fantastic restaurants overlooking the harbour. There is lots to visit in the area; Scopello is nearby where there are some lovely restaurants overlooking the sea and Erice is well worth a visit via a cable car from Trapani. Palermo is only an hour’s drive away as well. We have fallen in love with Sicily and cannot wait to return.
Villa FaTe is an elegant house, located in the countryside of Castellammare del Golfo, a town called Fraginesi. The villa is 7 km from the town where there are all the main services such as banks, post office, restaurants, supermarkets etc ... Distance 7. 5 Km from the exclusive and famous seaside resort of Scopello and the Zingaro Nature Reserve, characterized by beautiful bays where the sea is still clear and the nature untouched. The location of the structure allows you to visit places of naturalistic, tourist and archaeological, such as: Scopello, Castellammare del Golfo, Trapani, Erice, Marsala, Segesta, Selinunte, Agrigento, Palermo.
