Francesco and Stephanie were extremely nice and very helpful. Their English is good and they respond to texts and emails promptly. The directions to get to the property were very good and it was easy to find - Francesco was waiting for us on the corner! The property is an old Sicilian farmhouse which has been in the family for 5 generations. It is on 2 levels with original floor tiles on the upstairs landing. It is located in a quiet rural area below a road with nice views out, 13.5 kilometres from the hilltop town of Polizzia Generosa. There are some lovely hikes in the Parco Della Madonie. Francesco and Stephanie live next door and know all about the local area. The property has ample space for 2 people and there is a large tree shaded patio and parking area. Fresh drinking water is provided. The bathroom water is extremely hot! The cooking area was small. Francesco and Stephanie offer to cook meals at a charge. We were given a freshly made jar of delicious pasta sauce.
Hi Jennifer, thank you for your review! Just one thing to correct: we are 8 km from Polizzi Generosa instead of 13.5 ( this number refers to the begin of the national road which is a bit farer than Polizzi.Thank you, I hope you both are fine and to see you again at our place..
A wonderful experience in the enchanted mountains of Sicily
With my family I spent two fantastic weeks in August in "Casa del Vento". Francesco and Stefania are two exceptional, attentive, kind and helpful guests. The house is spacious, pleasantly cool and functionally and nicely furnished: the best starting point for marvelous walks in the mountains or towards the magical places of ancient Sicily. We stayed very well and we warmly suggest everyone to take a relaxing stop in Casa del Vento.
Unverfälschte Idylle in traumhafter Lage
Im liebevoll restaurierten Bauernhaus umgeben von wunderschöner Landschaft und Ruhe haben wir uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Francesco und Stefania sind überaus herzliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. In näherer Umgebung gibt es malerische Bergdörfer, schön zu besichtigen und gut zum Einkaufen. Also ein perfekter Ort um unseren Wanderurlaub im traumhaften Parco delle Madonie zu genießen.
The house is 500 meters above sea level, halfway between Scillato and the medieval village of Polizzi Generosa, full of squares and monuments that bear witness to the history of this part of Sicily, on the slopes of the "handle of the pan", characteristic geological formation from hence the name, in the Madonie Park. We are 30 minutes from the medieval and the seaside village of Cefalu, with its magnificent Arab-Norman cathedral. A few kilometers from the towns of Gangi, Petralia and Geraci Siculo (avvicendatisi in recent years as winners of the "Village of" villages). About twenty minutes from the main hiking trails leading to mountain peaks with breathtaking scenery through a nature with one of the richest biodiversity in Europe. And much more you'll discover if you decide to come and visit us!
