Apartment overview - owner's description

Our estate is situated in a rural and very peaceful idyll of about 50.000 square meters in the middle of a grove of olive-trees.

Our holiday domicile is situated at the bottom of SAN CALOGERO mountain, which is very famous all over the world due to its natural vapour bath grottoes, good for rheumatism and neuralgia therapy. Our estate is about 4 km from the town centre of Sciacca and also from the sea, situated in a rural and very peaceful idyll of about 50.000 square meters in the middle of a Grove of olive-trees (the oldest of our olive trees is about 2000 years old!). In our large villa, we live in the ground floor: my husband Massimo, Sicilian (a very simpatico one), our son David, 1/3 German + 2/3 Sicilian (that's what he says) and last but non least me, Doris, German (who is living here in Sicily for more than 10 years). Part of our family are also our lovely dogs Camilla and Theo, our cats Chop, Mitzi and his Harem and our chickens.
The four nice and cosy apartments are situated on the first floor (mansard). All units are fully equipped with TV, Hi-Fi, fridge, toaster, heating, air condition, standing fans, linen and towels weekly change, our Olive Oil extra vergine during your stay, garden furniture (sunshade, chairs, table, storm lantern, candels), clotheshorse etc.
All our guests can use the washing machine, the iron and ironing board, and our internet to check or send emails. Happy to announce that our apartments now has Wifi, so bring your own laptop and surf the internet at top-speed.
Free parking.
The CASA is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday, if you love the uncontaminated nature and if you don't want to miss the closeness of the sea. You will have a most impressive panoramic view. We are looking forward to our guests who prefer to live individually and to enjoy nevertheless a certain comfort.

Family from Burchetts Green, United Kingdom Jul 2015

This is a lovely small apartment that still fitted our family of six very comfortably. The views over he olive groves are superb and we sat out on the balcony every night.

We'd recommend to anyone looking to stay in rural Sciacca for a few days.

From Wantage, United Kingdom Mar 2011

Perfect for a young family - quiet location with beautiful views, but close to town and shops. The owners, Doris and Massimo were extremely welcoming and thoughtful, providing food for us when we arrived too late to shop. The communal hall was filled with things that we could borrow - lego for the children, guide books and beach equipment. The apartment had a convenient layout and everything we needed. Sciacca is a good base for visiting western Sicily - all the major sites are within about an hour and a halfs drive.

We enjoyed our two week stay at Localita Fontanacalda enormously. Ourapartment was spotlessly clean on arrival, and the welcome hamper wasgenerous and much appreciated. The details given on the internet areaccurate - and not exaggerated at all. Doris Ackermann was extremely helpfulwith all our queries and requests. The rural, peaceful setting with easyaccess to splendid ancient and medieval sites as well as to attractivebeaches was just right for us. We hope to return before long. We canthoroughly recommend Fontanacalda!Graham Stanton, Cambridge, UK
