Holiday at villa in Ribera
The house is lovely - beautiful garden and pool, well equipped and very comfortable. The house is not in Ribera - it is near to Seccagrande which is a rather rundown holiday resort but very Italian and friendly. We were there mid September so end of season and may be more charming in season. However the sea is gorgeous and we walked down from villa to swim every morning. For a relaxing holiday I would recommend this villa highly.
Superb villa with a fabulous pool in a great and convenient location
This superb house has been absolutely ideal for our 2 week summer holiday. We were a mix of 2 families - incorporating 2 couples, 2 teenagers and 2 younger children (age 8).
Everything was ideal - the correspondence during and leading up to our holiday was great - we had quite a lot of questions and got quick answers back. The directions provided to the house were clear, and communication on our way to the house was fantastic.
On arrival, we could immediately see that the villa was better than expected. The setting outside was great - the pool, patio and seating areas were fabulous.
The first thing we noticed in the house was how clean it was, and that the sizes were better than the pictures showed.
The configuration worked really well - three very generous double bedrooms on the first floor, and a very large double bedroom upstairs which was in the eaves room. Each bed was also on the large side, and all were very comfortable. In addition, 4 shower rooms was perfect with plenty of hot water.
The kitchen facilities were excellent, and we made good use of the barbecue. There was a dining area and sitting area, however we were outside all day and all evening enjoying the terrace.
We had a couple of questions during our stay and the owner, Gaspare, was very quick to reply and help. He called in to check the pool at the end of the first week and his team changed the bed linen and towels over.
The air conditioning was also very effective , and certainly helped with the comfort in the evenings.
The pool area was great - plenty of sun beds, tables and chairs for us all to laze around.
There is good screening around the property and very quiet. You can see on the map that the villa is close to a main road and other reviews advised that this wasn't a problem - we would all agree with this. Occasionally we could hear traffic, but really was still such a quiet location with the advantage of having a good road network close by.
There were plenty of beaches nearby - we didn't walk to our local one due to the house being up the hill and too hot for the children ! However, lovely beaches within a very short drive. Beautiful seas and sand. Plenty of amenities nearby - supermarkets and so on in easy reach.
All in all, a great holiday location and would certainly recommend this lovely villa.
Good Place to cisit the west side of Sicily
The house and grounds are very good. Mosquito screens need repairs and main door to kitchen is very sticky. Location is just off highway, but noise is minimal. The owners could do well by having an English manual that explains the washing machine, dishwasher and so on. Overall, excellent.
Our family of 9, 7 adults and 2 children stayed here and it was comfortable accommodations for us. The pool was great especially for the children's enjoyment. The outdoor space is beautiful and very much enjoyed. The house was clean and the owner welcomed us with a basket of local produce and fruit. They also had some items to get us started such as coffee and some breakfast items. We came to Sicily to meet family and they helped provide English speaking translators. The villa was lovely and the owners were very helpful. We greatly recommend this property to a larger group and if you have children. The four bedrooms and 4 bathrooms worked great for our group. We give the property five stars!
Thank you for the wonderful accommodations.
A fabulous villa for a family holiday!
We arrived after dark and the sight of the villa all lit up was wonderful. The owners were waiting to greet us and were very welcoming. The villa more than met our expectations and was so comfortable and well equipped, down to the cot and high chair for our granddaughter. The grounds are spacious and the outside living area allowed for us all to have space to do what we liked without feeling on top of each other. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. A great choice for our family holiday. We made lots of great memories here and would definitely return.
Even more spacious than the photos suggest. Pool is long enough to swim in with plenty of space around it to sit in the sun on the loungers, the chairs and table, or the hammock. Lots of covered space for shade / in the evening with several tables and chairs, the largest of which sits 8 for a meal.
Galley kitchen is well suited for holiday meals. Inside lounge is comfortable if you've had enough of being outside.
Everything immaculately clean.
Food and wine there on arrival was a nice touch.
Owner was very helpful in providing advice on things to do.
If we go back to Sicily we'll definitely go back here.
The villa is located in Ribera, a nice village which rises on a wide hill nearby Agrigento and famous for its international oranges production, so that it is known as “City of oranges” all over Europe.
Ribera is surrounded by gorgeous, uncontaminated and also unknown beach places; their long, white, sandy beaches will take your breath away! Some of them are natural reserves thanks to their beauty and their wildlife conservation.
One of the most beautiful is “Foce del Fiume Platani”, a protected area between Borgo Bonsignore and Capo Bianco, whose calcareous cliffs rise up marking the landscape incomparably. This area is characterized by sandy dunes, mouth zones, hill landscapes and Mediterranean wood that blend harmoniously each other.
“Torre Salsa” is another natural masterpiece, located between Siculiana Marina and Eraclea Minoa. Its peculiarity are the chalk and clay cliffs and the very bright sea, whose bottom is marked by a rich blooming flora and fauna. The six kilometers of wild nature encompass jagged shores, golden and secluded beaches, sandy dunes and uncontaminated paths which will fascinate sea and nature lovers. Furthermore you can admire the old famous sighting tower that dominates the top of a little promontory in the very centre of this oasis.
What you mustn’t miss is “Scala dei Turchi”, a singular white cliff made by limestone and clay which rises along the coast of Realmonte and overlooks a crystalline sea. Its name comes from the Turkish invasions. According to an old legend, the Saracens got there from the sea and climbed the cliff until the top; once there, they attacked the local people. It has became a tourist attraction for its particular color and shape; wind and rain have modeled it throughout the time, creating a huge natural staircase whose lines are rounded and irregular. Its white rocks look brighter thanks to the sun light and the water is incredibly clear.. it’s a paradise!
THE VALLEY OF THE TEMPLES - AGRIGENTO
The Valley of the Temples is one of the most suggestive attraction of Sicily. It rises in the southern part of the old city and is considered the biggest archaeological park in the world. Among a blooming almond trees countryside, the wonderful ruins of the temples, whose architectural majesty is still intact, will fascinate you.
This archaeological marvel consists of eight temples built in the 5th century BC: the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Heracles, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Temple of Castor and Pollux, the Temple of Hephaestos, the Temple of Demeter, and the Temple of Asclepius (the God of Medicine). The last one is situated on the banks of the Akragas river, all the others are in the same area on a rocky scarp in the southern modern Agrigento.
The Valley of the Temples is the most sublime evidence of the Greek civilization in Sicily until today and it has been an Unesco world heritage site since 1998.
Dwelling A' Turri will offer you this and a lot more. You will experience the emotion of a special vacation combing the typical rustic quietness, magic landscapes, sea and natural paradises but also marvelous cultural routes.
