“Amazing accomodation in beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

These apartments were perfect. Beautfiul, tastefully decorated, 'country kicthen style'. Really comfortable bed. Our own little outdoor area. Outdoor bbq areas, a lovely garden with an amazing view over Sciacca. The owners, Salvatore and Pascale were great, they gave us access to their fresh herb garden ad gave us peppers and chllis from the garden and eggs from their hen. They were very helpful and gave us any local information we needed. There is also a wonderful common room, with a pc, hundreds of books, great cds, dvds, leaflets and guidebooks on Sicily. We could've happily moved in! Would go back to Sciacca just to stay here again. Excellent value for money, in the uk the equivalent would be several times more expensive. Stay here!

Following friend's advice we stayed in this delightful home away from home little paradise.
We were given a cosy apartment with very nice outdoor space. The hosts were most gracious, everything was tasteful, neat and clean. Comfortable bed, peaceful environment. Best sleep ever!

We planned to go to Sciacca after a visit to Selinonte. It was getting dark and couldn't find our way in the town. We decided to leave town and ended up on top of Monte Kronio. Fortunately, Verdetechnica was close and recommended in our travel guide.

That was an excellent choice. You end up in an appartment, with ur breakfast for the day after waiting for you on the kitchen table. Pascale and Salvatore are really nice and you feel welcome. There's a library with telescopes where you can watch the stars and make your expresso coffee. Wi-fi worked perfectly.

We just spent a night, but I'd recommend it for longer stays for those who plan to visit Agrigente, Selinonte and other places in south of Sicilia.

As other reviewers before me I can't but once again highlight how both Pascale and Salvatore would do their utmost to ensure a most memorable stay. Originally, we had booked Casa Lucchese which is a very nice rustic style villa and can accommodate up to 11 people. Unfortunately, on our arrival, we thought it was too distant from the nearest inhabited area so we asked whether we could have another accommodation. Pascale immediately settled us out in other apartments next to their home. The location of Casa Lucchese is wonderful and being located on a valley full of olive trees etc the scenery is exceptional especially at dawn and dusk. The apartments just the same as their other properties offer comfortable lodging, with all that is necessary in a self catering establishment, to include a well equipped kitchen, sat tv, dvd, stereo with a very good choice of cds and wifi. Then, there is a conservatory which is common to all apartments where one can find a coffee machine, a library with loads of books about Sicily, cds and a couple of telescopes! It is very nice to enjoy others company especially if you're travelling in a group with kids. As for location, Sciacca is very well located within a comfortable drive to the most distant town of San Vito Lo Capo, thus you can cover the area all down to Marsala, Mazara Del Vallo and Selinunte very well, and the roads are really good!

We loved our little apartment that was tastefully appointed and the private courtyard. We were both sad that we only spent 2 nights there and on our next trip will be sure to spend at least a week. Pasqual and Salvatore were delightful hosts, there for anything you may need but very respectful of your privacy at the same time. If you go make sure to visit the Terme (Spa) the mud pack (Fango) and bath were quite the experience.

We stayed here for only one night on the way from Agrigento and we absolutely loved it. We got slightly lost on the way here as it was getting dark. When we finally arrived, Pascale came out looking relieved that we got here. Her worried look said it all - this is a place really cared for by hosts who care about their guests.

Pascale was a wonderful host explaining to us the food choices nearby and giving us a bigger room for the same price. Unfortunately, we were there only for one night, but I can see how this place can serve as a base from which you can explore nearby Agrigento, Selinunte, Segesta, and Erice.

We loved it here!!!

We didn't have a reservation, we just showed up late in the evening. Pascale, the owner, was cheerful and showed us to a fantastic apartment. We loved it so much that we decided to stay another three days...
