After booking this home in February of 2014 and waiting til September to actually go, our anticipation was high...we were NOT disappointed! We have rented homes worldwide from VRBO and Home Away as well as smaller vacation rental agencies and Casa Pergola, her Owners and Hosts, Paul and David, and indeed the whole of Sicily are our Number One Favorite! Previous reviewer, Donna L. describes the home eloquently and everything she writes is exactly as it is. The home is lovingly restored, with every thought given to offer guests comfort. The pool is a delightful-morning, noon and night...(hey guys, the tiles look beautiful!) and we used it everyday we were not swimming in the sea in nearby Cefalu. Yes, while it seems remote, the home is close to everything...I needed a doctor, there she was just a few moments away (thank you, Paul!). We filled the house with relatives including an 85 yo MIL. The home is easily accessible for any age. To celebrate MIL's birthday, Melissa Mangano was arranged to come cook a traditional, seasonal, organic where possible dinner buffet and her food was over-the-top wonderful! If you are lucky enough to book some time here, consider a small tete-a-tete and have her do it. Fantastico!
Most importantly, enough cannot be said about Paul and David. You will find immediate friends if you'd like to...they are not imposing if you care for privacy. Every need you have will be filled and more. They will share their histories, stories, friends, food and wine...they share themselves and will care for you. They have created a perfect spot for any type of trip...vacation, honeymoon, recovery, celebratory, exploratory, whatever you'd like your time to be. We cannot wait to return....Perfetto, indeed!
