Trip of a Lifetime
Our stay at the Gulliver’s Nest Villa was one of the best experiences in our lives. We travel extensively and we wanted to try a Villa rather than a Hotel. This Villa is in one of the most beautiful areas in the world, surrounded by mountains and a spectacular view. Everything in our stay exceeded our expectations. The place is simply immaculate, secure and very comfortable. Everything you could possibly need is provided, full kitchen, comfortable beds, cable TV, swimming pool, Hot Tub and much more.
We were welcomed by the owner, Giovanni Rappa with a spectacular home cooked meal that compared to the best of restaurants anywhere. The Villa is located near some of the most beautiful countryside that you can imagine. Your visit to Castellammare del Golfo will be treasured for a lifetime.
Needless to say, I look forward to my return to this paradise. Thank you Giovanni for making our stay Perfect.
Thank you for choosing us It was a pleasure staying and sharing time together
Home away from Home
Our host Giovanni was the true gentleman and ensured everything throughout our stay went smoothly. A highlight of the week was his Sicilian supper which he served to us. It was beautiful and all the better when we received the background knowledge on the preparation of each dish. Giovanni proved to be a mine of information on all things local and even further afield. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience in Sicily and found everything to be great value. The Sicilian people are truly laid back and welcoming also which makes it a wonderful place for kids. We shall return some day again in the future to enjoy once again this great country.
Castlemare Del Golfo is a bit offputting with its steep hills and tiny streets especially when you've hired a car but it's so worth a visit as there is a wonderful atmosphere at night and great value in all the restaurants as well as being a beautiful little town.
Fantastic cannot wait to return next year.
MY BEAUTIFUL HOMELAND.
Gulliver's Nest What can i say Wow Wow !!!
My father was born in Trapani therefore i have been to Sicily many many time.During my visits i usally stay in an apartment, on this occation due to my family (Daughter, Son in Law & Grandson ) comng with us we decided to rent a villa.
Wow - Wow - Wow - Wow - Wow
So many villa's to choose from and we chose Gulliver's Nest.
WHAT A PERFECT CHOICE.
On arrival we were greeted by Giovani, whom i will now call Gio.
I can say many words that can discribe Gio but I will say Two - True GENTLEMAN & True FAMILYMAN.
Gio will make anyones stay at Gulliver's Nest the perfect stay.
The Villa stands in it own grounds which is very secure and most of all very safe.
I appreciated the Scillian traditional herritage of the villa, the decor of the villa reminded me of my childhood and brought back so many memories of my Grandmother.
Entering the villa is like walking into someones home family portraits hang on the walls, everything about this villa was above our expectations. Everything was clean and tidy, there is everything in the villa you will need to live very comfortably.
During our stay i asked Gio if he minded if i invited some of my family members to stay at the villa during the weekend, Gio embrased this suggestion with open arms and also suggested that we suprise them with an evening meal.
All of our expectations were fulfilled in every way, not only was the meal Gio prepared for us of exceptional standard which would be expected from a 5 star retaurant he also waited on us ( 9 adults & 1 child ).
No words could express what Gio did that evening .
GIO YOU PLANTED VERY SPECIAL MEMORY IN THE HEARTS OF A VERY SPECIAL FAMILY WHICH WILL LAST MANY LIFE TIME.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.
I only have one dissapointmnet i have got to go back to England, we will be leaving tommorow so bye bye my beautiful Sciliy i love you and will be back.
Just a quick note to anyone that has not been to Sciliy visit Erice, Segesta & have a Cannoli.
A magical villa, a magical vacation...
Our time at Gulliver’s Nest was magical, and all of the credit goes to the wizard behind the scenes, the proprietor, Giovanni Rappa.
The magic began the moment we stepped into the villa; Giovanni met us at the door with a Rappa specialty--homemade lasagna and a salad fresh from his garden. His homemade wine mellowed us into Sicilians within moments. What a great start to our vacation!
Gulliver’s Nest is a spotless, spacious villa, beautifully furnished with contemporary furniture and ‘found’ architectural elements from Giovanni’s travels around the world. We especially loved the kitchen with its 100-year-old windows, beautiful carved wooden cabinets and marble-topped double-island. The kitchen is huge and well equipped—the perfect space for any level of culinary expertise. A plus for us is the long wooden table, large enough to fit our whole party and several dinner guests.
We had many opportunities to entertain guests and Giovanni made each event special by surprising us again and again with gifts from his kitchen. One day it was a jar of sun-dried tomato pesto to be eaten with fresh pasta and tuna. Another day was an extravaganza of sausage, pork, meatballs, potatoes and peppers prepared on site just for us on two large lava rock cooking surfaces. Incredible!
Giovanni makes sure that all of his guests’ needs are met. The furniture in the villa is lovely and well maintained. The beds are comfortable. Plenty of linens are provided. The villa is very airy and well laid out, there is ample room for everyone to gather in the main rooms and plenty of nooks if you want to get some privacy.
Gulliver’s Nest is in the quiet neighborhood of Fraginesi. Fraginese is just off of the main roads, so we could choose between staying at the villa for lazy, sunny afternoons on the chaise lounges by the pool; or hopping over to the crystal clear Guida Loca beach nearby; or day trips exploring the many foreign influences that have created the unique Sicilian culture - ancient Greeks at Segesta, Elymians at Erice, the Arab markets in Palermo, the Byzantine beauty of the Cathedral of Monreale.
We had an amazing, fun filled vacation and can’t wait to come back to both Giovanni and the lovely Gulliver’s Nest. We’re already planning our next trip. I’m ready for Christmas in Sicily!
Thanks very much for the amazing review. It was a pleasure to entertain you all with some typical sicilian food. Above all the gulliver's dish full of Mediterranean taste and give you a lasting souvenire of your stay in sicily at Gulliver's nest. thanks again and you are welcome in my house whenever you make up your mind to get one week free from november up to january within three years from now. thanks for choosing gulliver's nest
Beautiful, clean, spacious, great views, nice location, very private.
The house was wonderful. Very comfortable and was great for our group of people. We were able to entertain and used the outside dining area a few times as well. Pool was nice to have even though we mostly went to the beach. Giovanni was a great host! He checked on us often and cooked delicious food for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sicily and Gulliver's Nest was a big part of the reason we had such a fantastic vacation!
You were fantastic people. Above all you franc with that little baby that you take care and love. If you want to come during the time that goes from beginning of November up to the end of January one week is free for you. No need to pay. Thanks very much for choosing gulliver's nest
Feels like home
The Villa is beautifully landscaped and the interior is very comfortable. I found myself referring to it as "home" on several occasions! The Villa was impeccably clean as were the linens and appliances. The mountain views from the Villa are breathtaking! Our Host was very gracious and accommodating.
Thanks very much for the review. You are always welcome at gulliver's nest
take the motorway...,The villa is situated between the airport of Trapani Birgi and Palermo airport which are only about 40 km away form the villa.
At the owner's discretion,he reserves the right to surprise their guests with special dinners, not only to give a special welcome, but to leave an unforgettable day at villa gulliver’s nest. The oner is a very professional cook.
