My husband and I had a wonderfully stay at Fontana Calda. We rented PAPERA. It was a perfect size for the two of us. The view from the balcony of the Olive grove was wonderful. Doris was an excellent host. She stocked the fridge with some basics before we arrived and gave us great information about the area. We are already talking about going back. Sciacca was a very nice town as well and close to many wonderful sites of Sicily.
We had a really comfortable stay thanks to Doris thinking of absolutely everything you could want/need on holiday. I would recommend the location too as it is peaceful with lovely views, but with easy access to the town of Sciacca.
This is a very nice villa with everything there you need to have a nice vacation. The only thing that was very annoying was the very loud music and entertainment every night , the noise coming out of town! It destroys the silence and the beauty of the peacefull neighbourhood... I felt very sorry for this, because the villa does not deserve this! Maybe this wil be the fact only in july and august, I dont know.
Absolutely wonderful area close to the sea and historical Temples. Quiet and pleasant atmosphere with Doris (Landlady) and her delicious homemade Lasagnes! We definitely recommend this location! Doris, next time that we are in Sicily we visit you! Thank you again for everything! That was such a great time!
The apartment was in excellent condition, nice balcony, lovely quiet location, very clean and much care had been taken to think of things that guests may need or want to borrow such as picnic bags/candles/leaflets about places of interest. Doris, the owner who lives on site, was very helpful and answered questions we had about the area. A car is needed in this area as the apartment is located slightly out of the town/away from the beach but only 5-10 mins away by car.
