About the property

Two double bedrooms, large living room, small kitchen, two bathroom, terraces

The house belongs to a group of houses set on a hill at walking distance from the seaside (100 m), away from noise and car traffic.

The property overlooks the rocky bay of Makari, in a gulf between Cala Mancina and mount Cofano where the sun sets. The house is arranged on two floors. On the ground floor: a double bedroom , a large living room with a bed and sofa, a small kitchen with fridge/freezer and oven, a restroom with shower. On the first floor: a double bedroom and a bathroom. Outside there is also a barbecue grill and a shower. There are panoramic terraces with seaside view on both ground and first floor. There is a third terrace on the hillside with a barbecue grill. The town of San Vito and the sandy beaches are 3.5 km (about 2 miles) away. A restaurant overlooking the sea, “il pocho”, perched on the hill is also at walking distance.

About Maria Rosaria Spoto

I grew up in Palermo where I studied medicine and work in universities. I have two grown children, one lives in the US, the other in Milan. Also I in 95 I moved with my children to live first in Switzerland and then in Milan. This was the summer home where with my children we spent wonderful holidays at sea.

Maria Rosaria Spoto purchased this house in 1986

Why Maria Rosaria Spoto chose Macari

This house is a comfortable home for children who can play outside safely, away - close to the town for shopping or walk for an ice cream. Away from the crowds, it allows for the proximity to the sea not to take the car but you can go to the beach and return to home for a glass of water.

What makes this house unique

You can have breakfast in the morning and eating dinner on the terrace, admiring a beautiful bay overlooking the Aegean archipelago.You can swim around the Isulidda and with masks and fins to fish. And for those who like to climb, there are cliffs or caves to explore, 100 meters from the house.

Una vacanza in paradiso

  • 5 of 5

Casa vacanza bella, comoda, spaziosa. Perfettamente attrezzata con condizionamento caldo freddo. Terrazza con vista mozzafiato e mare cristallino a pochi passi. Pesce freschissimo da pescatori locali indicati dalla proprietaria cucinati al barbecue della terrazza posteriore e mangiati in quella anteriore vista mare. Vacanza da ripetere.

Traumlage, einfach, aber gut ausgestattet

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus ist genauso wie in der Beschreibung, es liegt in einer traumhaften Lage mit Blick aufs Meer, ist einfach eingerichtet (keine Spülmaschine und wenig Ablagefläche in der Miniküche, Einrichtung schon ein wenig älter...), aber die Lage und viele kleine Details entschädigen dafür (Waschmaschine, jede Menge Geschirr und Urlaubszubehör wie Liegstühle, Badehandtücher etc., Traumblick beim Frühstück und auch von der oberen Terasse abends). Am zugehörigen kleinen Steinstrand kann man super baden, das ist ein Vorteil besonders in der Saison, wenn San Vito völlig überlaufen ist (nur unbedingt Badeschuhe mitnehmen, sehr steinig).

Die Besitzer sind sehr freundlich!! Maria antwortet fast umgehend auf jede Mail, vor Ort kam sofort jemand und hat uns an der Tankstelle abgeholt, am Ende kam noch mal die ganze Familie und hat gefragt, wie es uns gefallen hat, sehr sympatische Menschen, vertrauenserweckend.

Bezahlung ging problemlos, einfach den Betrag überwiesen, wir hatten keinen Vertrag abgeschlossen und uns auf unser Gefühl verlassen - hat geklappt!

Wir können das Haus sehr empfehlen!

for Families, Climbers and Water Rats

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben mit unseren Kindern (2 und 5 Jahre alt) zwei Wochen in der Ferienwohnung verbracht und fanden die Bedingungen für Familien hervorragend: Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr gepflegt und bietet genug Platz. Das Gelände ist eingezäunt, so dass die Kinder sich frei bewegen können. Trotzdem ist der Weg ans Wasser sehr kurz und für Kletterer der Weg an den Fels so kurz, dass man das Auto eigentlich nur zum Einkaufen braucht. Wir kommen gern wieder.

Amazing view, nice and functional house in quiet and well kept residence

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay , 2 weeks, and can warmly recommend the house, perfect for families! This residence is a little bit of paradise very close to San Vito lo Capo, and several beautiful beaches with crystal clear water.

The owner was very nice, friendly and helpful at any time! The house is very functional, not over-furnished, and clean. You can enjoy amazing and dramatic sunsets from the patio and upstairs terrace. The location in the residence might actually be one of the the best.

Cold bottled water in the fridge when we arrived was very appreciated!

The outside kitchen on the backside patio could need some attention, and a table there would have been great, but except from these small details everything was perfect.

We hope to wake up there again, and again.

Einfach schön

  • 5 of 5

Einfaches gut ausgestattetes Häuschen mit wunderbarem Ausblick und kurzem Weg zu einer kleinen Bucht. Sauberes Wasser, kein Sand, schöne bizarre Felsen daher Wasserschuhe empfohlen. Ganz nach unserem Geschmack ruhige natürliche Umgebung. Schnorchelempfehlung. Kompetenter zuverlässiger Kontakt auch vor Ort.
