A WONDERFUL HOUSE IN A FAIRYTALE SETTING

  • 4 of 5
The house is set in beautiful acres, very private with beautiful nooks to explore, a little brook, an orchard, a wisteria-clad porch, and all in the midst of the dense Madonie Mountains. We couldn't have asked for a more idyllic place.
The house has been very tastefully renovated - wooden beams with quirky colours, old reclaimed windows next to a modern poster.
As you enter, you find a drawing room, and a separate dining room, leading to a tiny, but well-equipped kitchen.
There are two rooms upstairs - one with a very comfortable double bed, and another with an equally snug double-sofabed. Ample, clean bed linen were provided.
Close to the property is a wonderful pizzeria and alimentari called Spaccio Colombo. The owners are lovely and warm, and the food as wonderful as you expect Sicilian cooking to be.

The drawbacks to the property:
- Though the bathroom is clean and comfortable to use, the shower cubicle is very small, and would be a challenge for most. I'm a small person, and I could barely move.
- The stairs to the first floor is very steep and narrow, and would certainly pose a problem for many.
- Access to wi-fi is almost non-existent: there is one faraway spot on the property where you can get wi-fi, so you have to take your phone/laptop and walk across to the other side of the property, stand at that exact spot, do what you need to and get back to the house.

This is a house for those looking for a rustic, adventurous holiday in the woods. It's a wonderful place for children - my five-year-old enjoyed it thoroughly. And for the price, it's very good value for money.

WUNDERSCHÖN UND SEHR SEHR NETT!!!

  • 5 of 5
Ein wunderschön gelegenes und stilvoll eingerichtetes Haus!!! Sehr sauber! Etwas klamm war es, da es in den Bergen im Herbst etwas feuchter ist - aber das war kein Problem da wir es mit dem Ofen einfach wegheizen konnten.
Wir wurden sehr sehr herzlich empfangen und zwischendurch mit frischem Obst und Kuchen verwöhnt! Vielen Dank für die schönen Tage!

RELAXING HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent 6 nights here at the end of a two week stay in Sicily, and can say without hesitation is was by far and away the best place we stayed! The cottage is as good as the photos, if not better, and Pamela and her family were extremely welcoming and friendly. The house was very comfortable and is extremely well placed for exploring the coast and the Madonie, or simply just staying in the garden, enjoying the fresh fruit (we were there at apple, chestnut, fig and persimon season), relaxing and taking in the views down to the sea. The pool is lovely too (although a little on the cold side in the middle of October!), but the sea was beautifully warm still, so we weren't complaining. Coupled with the wildlife - we heard owls every night and saw a large range of birds, not to mention the family of wild boar who came up to the fence while we were having breakfast, this makes Casa Bianca a fantastic holiday house. We have already discussed when we hope to be back!

LOVELY!

  • 5 of 5
Firstly, what a beautiful setting. Then there's the cottage, which is lovely - simple but designed and decorated with flair.
Added to that Pamela and her family are rare gems. Friendly, thoughtful and discrete, with good english and a very helpful approach.
We certainly hope to be back.
Thank you so much Pamela!
