Et skønt sted
Vi boede 16 mennesker ( bedsteforældre og tre børn med familier) i 4 lejligheder og den femte var fælles. Vi betalte 30.000 kr for det hele i påskeugen og havde den mest fantastiske ferie. Huset er renoveret på smukkeste vis, haven er mindst ligeså smuk og alt er meget velholdt. Selvom det var køligt morgen og aften i april måned brugte vi flittigt den rene pool. Casa Galo er perfekt til en sportsglad familie som vores. Der var ketchere og bolde til rådighed og alt fungerede. Vi plukkede citroner, appelsiner og dragefrugter. Der er en kort køretur til Donnalucata med cafeer og strand. Vi lavede mad i det store køkken og nød at spise hjemme hver aften.
Hvis noget var i uorden, blev det straks lavet. Alt i alt helt perfekt. Kan varmt anbefales til en familierejse.
Thank you Lisa!!!!!!! Kisses to all the company! Have a nice summer!

The most incredible 5* villa
This was a group holiday, 16 people split over 4 families and we stayed for 7 days.
The room layouts are brilliant and gave everyone a separate bathroom, lounge & kitchen. There was also a large open plan area with seating, large table and cooking facilities which we used communally.
The amenities are fantastic with Tennis, Basketball, Table Tennis, French Boule and the star of the show, the pool.
The pool was cleaned by the owners on a daily basis and was in constant use by us throughout our stay. At one point swimming at midnight? Not something you can do in a hotel?
Our hosts were extremely helpful and explained everything when we arrived.
You must have transport here though as it’s a long way from town or shops. The Eurospin supermarket is great value and has everything you’ll need for your stay, and only 3km away.
All the rooms are spotless and a lot of effort has gone into making this an incredible villa.
If you book here you will not be disappointed.
The most incredible review!!
Mr Bevan thank you for your amazing review full of intelligence, heart and sympathy!
A hug to all your company and I wish you a good August.
Bye Elena Nino Pina & company
Beautiful property with a few hick ups..
Stunning property and beautiful appartments with an amazing pool, tennis court and lots of recreational spaces.
Very clean and comfortable place to stay, great for a large group of people to book out the entire property. Highly recommend organising a chef through the hosts, she was amazing!
MUST HAVE CAR!! There is limited public transport and taxis to the town and beach. The initial communication with the hosts was over very good however we wish we had a bit more information...
We were not told to not drink tap water and many of us got extremely ill.
One day the family and their children came to use the pool facilities without letting us know first and during the stay it was difficult to contact the hosts.
Keep track of your own AC power usage as you are charged for it at the end of the stay.
Hallo Kelly thank you for your kind review and for your appreciations about our property and our chef Laura!Thank you too for your tips;only I'm a little bit disappointed that of all our service: 1)free taxi service for your friends from bus stop to Casa Galó in the middle of the night (1 am) after a simple telephone call (not at all difficult calling us, you had our telephone number and we live 5 min far from the property!!) ;2) free linen; 3) free parcel delivery, after your leaving, directly at your friend Camilla's home of their forgotten at Casa Galó silver necklace (the delivery was completely by our charge!!), parcel delivery at the property during your stay of your things forgotten at the previous hotel you stayed, personally from my mother (you know we preferred delivery to our house to avoid delivery at the property when you was not there; 4) not due disposable service of very abundant waste inside and out of the apartments (this is usually guest's task); 5) differentiated homecooking service for vegetarians and not vegetarians in the same meal, you remember now only the air conditioning payment that, if you see, is very clearly specified in our section "additional informations about rental rates" just under the rates on Casa Galó home away listing, but also we remembered you that AR conditioning was an extra in a 5 months ago mail because we want to specify that however linen for you was free; and also you remember the only hour during your stay (really 10 min because after your complaint I immediately called out of the pool the boys!) that my 2 little children went in the pool (not all the family o no!!this is not true! only the two children) when I came the day before your leaving to have information about your check-out hour; really was a very hot day and it did not seem true to my children making a dive, but sure I accept this tip that we should have ask the permit. Finally we usually drink tap water all the year and really we are not ill! The only problem is that in Sicily tap water has chlorine taste. My and my mother's tel number is registered on home away listing and you can see it immediately after booking, you know because your friends called us for being transported at the property. Thank you again for your tips Kelly have a nice summer. ElenaGiovannaCarmela
Perfect house for a family or friends group
We had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing week at Casa Galo. It was a perfect property for a large family group with four small children. The apartments were really well equipped and we particularly appreciated the spacious communal cooking and eating space. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful in providing extra items when needed (high chair and baby bath)
As it wasn’t always easy to go out with little ones, we very much enjoyed and made good use of the pool, tennis court and table tennis.
I would recommend this property without reservation for a family or friends group.
thank you, Heather, for your words. We are happy to know that you have spent a pleasant and relaxing holiday in our house ... we would be delighted to welcome you again!
Casa Galo in one word: MAGNIFICENT!
What a beautifull villa on a perfect location! We stayed in this villa for one week, with 5 families consisting in total of 10 adults and 9 children, varying in age from 0,5 to 10 years and we all had a really great time. The villa is layed out for 4 families (and 20 people), but by transferring part of the common space into 2 bedrooms we managed to comfortably house 5 families! The apartments are all very comfortable, clean, and foreseen with their own kitchen and bathroom. The villa is extremely well suited for children and has varias spots to sit down and relax. The tenniscourt on top of the swimming pool is an absolute bonus. The owners are very very kind and will do everything to make your stay a success. We could more than warmly recommended this villa to everybody and hope to return sometime in the future and if not we will for always keep the good memories of a fantastic week in our hearts!
You need a car, but that allows you to get to the nearby supermarkets (Eurospin/Conrad) within just 5 minutes and to easily get to Scicli, Ragussa, Donnalucata and other beautifull typical Sicilian villages and enjoy the local food, wine and last but not least the icecream!
Perfekt boende för grupp av vänner eller som vi var flera familjer
Bra boende för ”storfamiljer”Vi var 9vuxna och 7barn som alla hade gott om plats i de olika lägenheterna.
Hallo Eva thank you! A big hug to all your grandchildren!!
