A beautiful house in a stunning location
We spent a week at the Casale des Poets and were thrilled with it. The house is well equipped and spacious for a large group (we had nine people) with five bedrooms and four full bathrooms. There is so much to do in the area but it's also quite lovely to sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful views and the delightful pool. The house sits on a hilltop that you reach via a winding mountain road. Its about 2 miles up the hill but worth it for the views. Down the mountain, there is a great supermarket that had everything we ever wanted for the week, including lots of great prepared foods, as well as a great coffee/gelato bar. The closest beach is the stunning Tonnare of Scopello and there is also a lovely small old town area in Scopello with restaurants and shops. We stumbled upon this destination by accident, but it proved to be perfect. We took easy day trips to Agrigento, Erice, Palermo, Segesta and Vida lo Capo -- all worthwhile destinations nearby -- the furthest (Agrigento) being just a little over two hours. The family that owns and rents this house were so pleasant to deal with and they were very helpful as well. There was a problem with air conditioning in one bedroom one afternoon and they were there at 7 a.m. the next morning to fix it. The house is well equipped with wi-fi and a washer/dryer and a fully stocked kitchen and outdoor grill and prep area. If you are hoping to visiting Sicily I would put this destination on the top of your list.
