Great villa with beautiful garden and view on the sea!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property in July. We stayed there with our 3 small children and the house is ideal for families. It has a spacious living and dining room, open kitchen, nice bedrooms (one with bunk beds for the kids), toys for the kids, most necessary appliances and a very nice outdoor area with garden, veranda, outside shower and kitchen. The house is also very well located between Palermo and Cefalu with easy access to the main motorways to Agrigento, Trapani or Messina. Lots of nice towns and sites to visit in the area. The better beaches are a short drive away, some restaurants in the local town and others in Palermo and Cefalu of course. The owner Sarah is very kind and welcoming, she showed us around upon arrival, made sure we had everything we needed (including baby bed and high chair for our little one) and even went grocery shopping for us on our first day when we arrived tired on a Sunday afternoon.

All in all a great place to be recommended to anyone that wants to explore Sicily!

This property is an excellent and comfortable base to explore Palermo, Cefalu and beyond.

  • 5 of 5

Sara is keen to make her guests feel welcomed. Her little touches of detail throughout the property add to its appeal. The property is well-equipped and clearly well looked after by Sara. We used both kitchens, inside and out and loved the fact that there were different places in the garden and patio areas to sit and relax. We also found garden herbs and used them too! The property’s location make it easy to wander down to the small town for provisions, a drink or a meal. It is also well-placed for a train ride to Palermo- far easier than navigating the traffic to be sure,- and as you may well wish to visit more than once, this is desirable. Journeys to Monreale and Cefalu are within distance too. Certainly, the property is near, but not in sight of the rail track, but this did not pose a problem for us. This was an ideal base to visit the north of Sicily and a comfortable one, too.

Lovely house in beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

We had a fatastic week in Sara's lovely house.

Sara met us at the house and was very welcoming, showing us around and explaining how things worked, she even provided us with some local produce.

The house is beautifully decorated and was equipped with everything we needed for our weeks stay. The gardens are well maintained with various sitting areas to make the most of the great weather, to allow us to enjoy outdoor dining, there was even a sea view while using the bbq.

The house is in a great location for exploring Sicily, and is very close to the major road network. We managed to tour the north and west of the island and if we'd had more time I'm sure we could have gone further east.

The house is within 5 minutes walk of the village centre which has an array of restaurants, bars and small supermarkets. We visited various restaurants and enjoyed local fresh seafood, served by friendly and helpful staff.

Overall our holiday experience was fantastic, and the house is possibly the nicest we have stayed in, thank you Sara for a lovely holiday.

Sicily holiday in very nice city

  • 5 of 5

This house has a very good location close to many attractions.

The owner welcomes you and goes through the house and everything.

The house is very well kept and you have all you need for a good holiday. Barbeque grill, outside kitchen and places you can sit and look over the sea. The local city is very nice and there are supermarkeds and places you can buy fresh fish. The harbour area is very nice and you have a local beach as well.

We went to Cafalu, Castelbuonu, Corleone, San Vito lo Capo, Trapani and and Palermo. We saw the beautifull country driving to those places.

We sure can recommend this house to people that would like to see the northeastern part of Sicily.

Comfortable and Great View!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights at the end of April. Sara and her husband met us in town and we followed them to the villa. They are a very pleasant couple and presented us with a large bowl of fruit, much of it from local trees, including oranges and lemons. The villa is down a narrow lane which leads to their electric gate which provides private parking. The view is spectacular, looking over the sea, and the yard is lush with grass and fruit trees. Inside, the downstairs is comfortable, with an open plan encompassing a living room, dining room, and kitchen. The satellite TV has mostly Italian stations, or course, but we found a few English speaking news stations to keep us informed about the world. Since is was a little cool at night we made a fire in the fireplace a few times, which really warmed up the villa. Sara has provided lots of firewood on the outdoor patio. Up about four steps are the bedrooms and bath. The bed was very comfortable, and the bath had plenty of counter space for the two of us. There is a nice patio with table and chairs, and another kitchen, which we did not use but would be convenient for outdoor eating. All in all a very nice stay!

fantastisch vakantiehuis!

  • 5 of 5

Een mooie villa met alle gemakken voorzien en meer! Van open haard, buitenkeuken, leuk en goed onderhouden tuin tot fris beddengoed en handdoeken. Het huis is mooi ingericht, schoon en comfortabel. Daarnaast zorgen Sara en haar man ervoor dat je je erg welkom voelt. Flesje wijn in de koelkast, vers fruit uit eigen tuin en een heerlijk hapje als ontvangst. Werkelijk een aanrader! Een lief stel die hun bezoekers graag in de watten legt! Een grote aanrader!
