“A peaceful gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

You'll need a car but Villa Carlo is just iutside Marsala with a view of Isola Grande. Beautiful pool, large room, great breakfast. Have dinner at nearby La Lumie. This is the place if you're looking for peace and quiet and willing to drive to town and nearby sights and restaurants. Try to arrive in daylight. The directional signs are a little hard to see at night.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

Getting to Villa Carlo was easy as the roads are well signposted ands only 20minutes from the airport and the centre of Marsala. The rooms, service and pool area were top class. There is also a BBQ are you can make use of. The highlight was surely the breakfast with a wide range of choise of fresh cornetti, cakes, cereal, eggs and other healthy options such as fresh fruit. The restaurant which is available in the evening is also good for a romantic meal.
Staff are very helpful!

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking pool on the lower level!

If you are a family with small kids and like to sit outside in the evening with a glass of wine after putting kids to bed - this is the place you have been looking for. Located just a few kilometers out of Marsala city so car is essential. No problem to find, very well marked with signposts from any direction. Place was rather empty during out stay so we got some "special attention" from friendly host which was a pleasent surprise :-)

Just a second after your arrival you know it's going to be good. And it is! Very friendly people around there, good food at the restaurant, amazingly beautiful swimming pool - very cold water though. The only thing they could do better is the kitchen - it's outside the "living sector" but it's very small and not best equipped. But it's not the most important thing. The room was very nice, fridge inside, bathroom, wifi.
The location - not the best. We had a car so it wasn't an issue for us but sometimes we had to help other guests to get to the city center or to the beach as it's really far away. Some of them rented bicycles so it was easier to get home after a whole day but they complained that it's not safe to ride a bicycle on those narrow streets of Marsala. I think they are so cute, I love the Italian climax of streets, but are they safe for bicycle riders? Anyway I would get back to this spot and definitely by car.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

it was a nice, relaxing place to stay for 2 nights at the end of our week Sicily.
We were there just outside high season what made it affordable, otherwise i would probably find it too expensive and busy.
You need a car to get around. The swimming pool and breakfast were good.
We went to a nice restaurant in Marsala, it was owned by a family-member and very good! almost only Italians and very good value for money.

Peaceful location near Marsala. Peaceful also means that you need a car if you stay there. Pool was nice, breakfast was also ok. Stuff was very helpful and nice. There is also very nice restaurant about 1,5 km from Villa Carlo called Le Lumie.

If you arrive at night, VC may be bit hard to find. Noise isolation wasn't the best in the rooms.
