Unit Monika, 1 Km. out of Sciacca
Sciacca is a fishing town situated on the famous archeological road between Selinunte and Agrigento in Sicily, is one of the oldest towns in the island
The real heart of the town centre is steeped in history and ancient architecture of Moorish, and baroque style, ancient alleyways and courtyards. A labyrinth of houses and streets, some of which can be narrow enough to fit only a single person at a time.
Throughout alleys and little squares of the port area and the town center there are many restaurants, which all serve delicious (sea-)food. winding stairways, narrow little streets and alleys and window boxes filled with the inevitable geraniums.

Distance to sightseeing
Palermo (~90 km), the Greek temple of Segesta (~85 Km), the Greek city of Selinunte and Eraclea Minoa with superb beaches (~30 Km),temples valley Agrigento (~60 Km), Trapani(~90 Km), Erice (~95 Km), the marine natural reserve of "Lo zingaro" (~85 Km) and the white sandy beach in San Vito Lo Capo (~90 Km).
Further afield are Piazza armerina (200km) The fabulous Roman mosaics of the Villa del Casale and Mount Etna (300km), are well worth the journey.
Another important point to remember: the nearby town of Caltabellotta (~20 km) an old village nestled on the flanks of the mountains at an altitude of 1,000 metres, the Matrice church, the Castello Mount and the Hermitage (13th century) with a stunning views over the coast and the valley for miles away.

The appartment was a nice place to hang my hat and we were happy with it over all. The view of the Med was a bit over rated but all in all we were happy with our home away from home.

From London, United Kingdom Mar 2006

The 3 bedroomed house we were given was exceptionally light and airy with great views over Sciacca from upstairs. The decor was very simple with some nice touches, but entirely suited the setting. The outside area was excellent - a great place for sitting and soaking up the sun even in March, and we thought it would be amazing in summer with the covered barbeque and large seating area. The house was very clean and had just about everything you'd need in it - from the DVD and CD players through to all the cooking utensils you'd need.

The owner was very accomodating, and provided us with herbs from her greenhouse, a basket of the essentials on arrival, and even the ingredients for a dinner on the first night. All in all a great, quiet place to stay for a relaxing break.

This review does not concern Apt Monika (this unit doesn't have three bedrooms) but Casa Pauline.

We recently spent two winter months at Verdetecnica in Sciacca and we would recommend it to anyone who wants a holiday where peace and quiet reigns and where the hosts are most helpful, amiable and knowledgable. Our one bedroom apartment was comfortable and bright, and there was transportation into town easily accessible . Sciacca is near all sorts of wonderful places to visit, either with a car or without. my husband and I did not have a car, but we managed to do a pretty extensive tour by bus. We especially liked the laid-back atmosphere and the many places around Verdetecnica where we could relax, enjoy the view while sipping a good glass of wine., We hope to go back soon., A great place to avoid winter!

Dear Pascale and Salvadore,Firstly I hope I have the spelling of Salvadore's name correct!!!!!Now I want to say that we arrived home in Canada on Sunday night safe andsound.

We enjoyed the accommodation "Monika", as it authentically gave us a glimpse of how it would be to live in a "Sicilian Home", I loved the kitchen.We especially loved the town of Sciacca, South-Western Sicily and the genuine friendliness & helpfulness of the people we met along the way.Lynette & Michael S.
