Lovely house in a beautiful and tranquil setting
My husband, two small children and I spent 9 wonderful days in this house in August 2014.
Firstly, the location: the house set in a truly beautiful landscape of lemon groves set against a background of stunning mountains. The area is totally tranquil with no neighbours and just the tops of houses from the nearby town of Scillato in the distance. Scillato is fine for going out for an ice-cream and a wander around a pretty and peaceful Sicilian village. You will need to travel to the coast, about 20 minutes drive away, to reach larger, well stocked and cheap supermarkets. The drive from Palermo is very straightforward and takes about an hour and a half. Car hire is essential.
The house and grounds: The house is lovely, quite rustic, but very comfortable with all modern conveniences. The size of the property was perfect for our family with two good sized bedrooms, a large kitchen and dining room, decent shower room and comfortable outdoor living room (great for warm evenings). The house was spotlessly clean and very well equipped for cooking and dining at home. Wifi has a daily data limit, but this was not a problem and was perfect for our needs, and we use the internet quite a lot. Great BBQ and outdoor dining area. The surrounding gardens are beautiful and well cared for. The pool is a great size, clean and perfect for adults and kids alike (although quite deep, so kids need armbands if not that confident in the water).
The owners: Giuseppe and his family were extremely friendly, generous and hospitable and made our stay a very happy and comfortable one. Thank you! Giuseppe does not speak much English but he uses a great online translation service.
Things to do: the house could benefit with more information on places to visit, restaurants to try, directions to the supermarket, etc, but at least with the internet you can research all these things. With two small children (who loved the pool!) and such a beautiful and relaxing setting, we spent most of our time at the house. Cefalu is stunning and enjoyable for evening meals out.
We would recommend this house without hesitation. Enjoy!!
Une maison au calme en pleine nature, la piscine et l hospitalité de giuseppe...c etait parfait.
Encore mille mercis pour votre hospitalite et pour avoir contribué à faire de notre sejour un moment hors du temps aussi reposant que ressourçant. Encore merci pour les citrons, les pêches et pour votre présence attentive.La maison est tres agreable, juste la bonne taille pour 4 personnes et tres fonctionnelle (il manque juste une paire de ciseau dans la cuisine 😉�). Le jardin, la piscine , et les champs de vignes et d oranger sont evidemment le clou de la propriété. Nous avons pu profiter aussi de la plage a campofelice et le petit village de scillato est tres sympa pour une pizza le soir ou pour acheter ce qui manque...bref je recommande votre maison pour des vacances inoubliables.
Nous vous souhaitons une bonne continuation ainsi qu a votre epouse et peux etre a un de ces jours.
Amicalement. Veronique et tte la famille
Grazie ai coniugi Veronica e Sergio , mi fa immenso piacere della vostra soddisfacente vacanza trascorsa nella mia casa con tutta la famiglia peccato che è stata breve , ma per visitare e conoscere la Sicilia occorre più tempo , chissà il prossimo anno se volete sarete i preferiti. Complimenti per la vostra semplicità e nobiltà , vi ricorderò come tra i miei migliori ospiti , ancora grazie Giuseppe.

Family holiday in Sicily
The house was perfect for a familly of 4 and very well equipped and clean, it contained everything we required for a 3 week holiday, a real home-from-home. The large barbeque made cooking easy, and the swimming pool of 10 x 4m was perfect for relaxing, the large garden was full of orange trees. All was as descibed on the the homeaway site. The owner, Giuseppe and his wife were very kind and helpfull; Giuseppe came by every evening to clean the swimming pool and gave advice on places to visit in the area. A car is absolutely essential, the house would have been difficult to find, but Giuseppe arranged a meeting point to take us there, so we didn't get lost. We would definitely recommend this holiday home, it's perfect for families
