Self-Catering-Accommodation Gufo

Overview

Our holiday domicile FONTANA CALDA 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 30.000 square meters in the middle of a grove of olive-trees (the oldest olive tree has about 2000 years!). 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 (thats 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 is also Rubbia, our lovely dog and our cat Chip.
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. Free parking.
The CASA FONTANA CALDA is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday, if you love the uncontaminated nature and if you dont 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.

Modern comfortable apartment containing everything needed for a home from home experience with sunshine! Doris and Massimo are generous and hospitable hosts who genuinely want their guests to have an enjoyble stay. Would definately reccommend to anyone who wants tranquility and beautiful views and yet within a short distance of a lively town and some good beaches.
