I was lucky enough to stay at this house during my recent vacation in Sicily. The house itself is very comfortable and well appointed. The bedrooms were spacious, the kitchen well stocked and the gardens were lovely. There are wonderful beaches and other attractions within driving distance.
Any concerns we had were addressed by the housekeeper and her husband quickly.
This house is a gem! It even came with a friendly cat, and a herd of cows that strolled by everyday (on their side of the fence).
I would recommend this house to anyone who appreciates nature, comfort and easy living!
My wife’s dream since she was a little girl was to go to Italy. For our honeymoon, we made a compromise. We could go to Italy as long as we spent no more than half the time sightseeing. We decided to stay four days in Rome and were looking for another place to stay in Sicily for a week for the relaxation portion of the trip.
Now, I must preface this by saying I am extremely picky. We had a travel agent check for hotels and resorts in Sicily and none of them seemed appealing. I then stumbled across Lalla’s property and showed it to my wife. We both agreed that it looked spectacular so we decided to book it.
As beautiful as the place looks in the pictures, it is even better in person. The views are nothing short of spectacular at all times of the day. The pool and outdoor seating areas were also comfortable and very nice. The inside of the villa was extremely clean, well-appointed, and had everything you needed to relax. It had a nice bluetooth speaker, flatscreen TV, and Wi-Fi that worked the entire time. It was also equipped with high-end appliances and cookware.
The location of the villa is also perfect. It is secluded on the side of a mountain but is just a short fifteen minute drive down the mountain to a local market that has amazing food, many types of alcohol, and anything else you might need. You can also get to almost all of the major attractions and cities on the northwest coast of the island (Segesta, Erice, San Vito Lo Capo, Custonaci, Castellammare del Golfo, Palermo) within 40 minutes. The closest town, Scopello, was about fifteen minutes away. About one mile away from the aforementioned market there are three excellent restaurants in the Scopello town square.
In addition to the villa itself and the location being perfect, Lalla also couldn’t have been more accommodating. She is extremely polite, accessible, and was willing to help with anything that we needed.
The bottom line is if you book this villa you will not regret it. We were already trying to figure out how we could get back before we even left!
