As a family of four (2 adults, 2 children) we absolutely loved this villa. The location is perfect and property itself is extremely charming and cosy. There's not one negative I could find. Super clean, efficient and the owners have literally thought of everything. As a keen cook the kitchen was a dream with fresh herbs, oils and supplies all surrounded by traditional crockery and facilities. It's not often the case where I actually want to cook on holiday! We'd eat on the terrace where you got the loveliest sea breeze or by the pool in one of the verandas. Even though we did go to the local supermarkets and veg stalls there's also so much fruit growing around the property and we loved going out and picking our own. The bedrooms were cosy with lots of storage space and comfy beds with fresh cotton linen and the view from our room was over the pool where if you wake up early enough you can watch the sunrise. This villa would easily accommodate 10 people too. Last but not least - the pool is amazing. Deep enough to dive and shallow enough to laze. Lots of super comfy loungers, close to the house so you can easily pop back for drinks and we spent nearly all our time here. We did hire a car and I would say that if you do want to go out and explore you 100% need one. If you book this villa - you'll love it!

We stayed in this Villa for one week at the end of June 2009 and found it to be very clean and private. It also had private parking in the grounds of the house. The Villa was small ~ one large room with a double bed, a settee and a kitchen with gas hob, fridge and utensils/crockery a shower room and a very small box room with a single bed that we used for storage. Air conditioning was very good (0.50 euros per unit), though only in the main room. The highlight of the Villa was its terrace with its amazing views and privacy (watch out for mosquitoes). The lowlight was the shower, which although in perfect working order and clean, was so small you couldnt lift your elbows (at 6ft and 13 stone). The pool was clean and well maintained, but sadly due to the weather we didnt make a lot of use of it. The Owners live on site and were very friendly and helpful. It is located at the top of a steep hill and approx. 10 mins walk to the first supermarket, 15 mins walk to restaurants and 30 mins walk to the harbour and its many restaurants. We would recommend SISA supermarket as it was large and well stocked. We ate in Bar Agora, which has a very nice restaurant at the back (unseen from the front) with an English translated menu, good choice and huge portions. We also ate in Murhpys (near the harbour), which also had an English translated menu with a good choice of food. A word of caution, if you are not a fish lover be very careful which restaurant you chose as many offer little else. We would recommend the Villa highly to anyone who didnt regard the small size or the hill walking a problem (we didnt). During our week long stay we managed to visit Scopello, Lo Zingaro, Segesta, Selinunte, Trapani, Marsala, Erice, Corleone (dont bother unless you happen to be passing) and Agrigento. Top tip, to walk to the harbour from the Villa turn left at the bottom of the drive and keep going until you reach the main street, then go right.

It was a small apartment but as the weather was good we were outside a lot or by the pool so that was no problem. Clean, basic, good facilities, great pool, well looked after and great view from the pool out to sea and the Aeolian Islands. Very relaxing, you do need a car to get around and the bus wasnt very reliable.

The owner was charming and diligent, the place and the pool was kept clean, and they were careful to provide as much privacy as possible on a not very private site. The site has been carefully considered in its layout. However this should not be billed as a four-bed unit. Although the description did say that the second bedroom had no window it did not mention that it was only 1.2m wide, and with a low ceiling, making it more like a cupboard. unbearably oppressive and unuseable. Neither of our children were able to sleep in it, and I was certainly not prepared to sleep in such an unpleasant space. We had to make do with difficult sleeping arrangements throughout the week and I returned home tired. At this price it felt very unfair. Fortunately the surroundings and local beaches were good, although the incessant barking of dogs throughout the night was disturbing.
