An unbelievably stunning villa with every convenience you could wish for, in particular the large pool and outdoor kitchen. A wonderful, charming place for families of all ages or a group. The immensely kind owner Francesco, who speaks good English, could not be more helpful or friendly and will help you get the best out of a holiday to Sicily.

Excellent WiFi connection to keep the children happy, plus superb supermarket (great meats/cheese counter), bakery (fabulously fresh bread and cakes) and fruit stall just 8 minutes walk away.

Would recommend visiting Mondello Beach near Palermo and the old city centre.The property was so amazing we are looking at returning in the future.

I travelled with a group that included 4 adults, and 3 children.
We arrived at the property late at night having been collected from the airport by the host Roberto. We arrived to wine, pizza and beer, which was very welcoming.
The property itself is 10 times bigger than what was expected. The pictures do not do it justice. There is nothing that I could fault with the property. There is a large pool and extended gardens around the whole house, plus a great outdoor kitchen with a lovely sheltered area outside for eating, within the house the living area is palatial, relaxing, cool and very well presented. I loved that the whole property was very secure with a high wall and your own private entrance gate which can only be accessed in and out by using a key, so you are safe in the knowledge that your children can roam around the house and grounds safely.
Roberto lives on site as do his family, but it feels as though you are within your own private villa. The hospitality offered to us all was amazing. Rosa and Franco (Roberts parents) were amazing they greeted us and showed love towards the children and adults as we were there own family.
I look forward to returning to the property again in the future.
Within an 8 minute walk of the villa there is a small supermarket, bakery and green grocers.
This is accessed by walking along a busy road with no pavement so not really suitable for young children, but fine for adults.
If you want to visit beaches and towns then a car is required but Roberto is happy to provide a taxi service for excursions. A trip to Mondello Beach is a must, we traveled there late evening 4-5 pm and it was a prefect time for the children to play on the beach and go in the sea whilst the adults were able to sit in a bar on the sand watching the children play, then there are loads of restaurants and bars to choose from for dinner time.
There is also a fantastic fish restaurant in Cinisi which again a car is required so we again used the taxi service provided by Roberto.
If you are after a lovely relaxing holiday that is tranquil and provides a home from home, then this is a perfect holiday destination for you.
It is great for family groups, weekend getaways with friends, airport stopovers as you are literally a 10 min drive from the airport, although you would never know as you never hear the planes coming and going.
If you wish to travel around freely and go further afield for day trips etc then a car is necessary. But if you are happy to experience a home from home holiday then the local amenities are enough to provide you all you need.
I would personally use just the taxi service provided by Roberto.

Roberto's sea house is ideal in every aspect. It's close to the airport and the beach, it is big and cosy (every corner of this villa is relaxing and inviting) and above all it has the greatest host in the world. It is difficult to describe the kindness of this man, you just have to be there to understand. As he sais "my guests are my friends" - and trust me, he means every word.

We were warmly welcomed (even when arrived much earlier then expected) by Roberto and his fiancée. We had a little drink, we were guided around the villa's facilities and we were shown to our room in order for us to rest after our early flight. Everything was clean and nicely decorated.
We booked a room with a balcony. Going out to this balcony every morning and looking at the view was priceless!

We enjoyed every minute. From the comfort of this villa, to the stories and recommandations of Roberto.

Rooms are clean and nicely decorated.
Beautiful garden surrounding the house.
Pool area is great.
Very children friendly.
Newly installed guests kitchen!
Supermarket, bakery and some restaurants are within reach.
Offers bicycles rental.

**** TIP ****
It is highly recommended to hire a car (even though you can do without) because there are INCREDIBLE places to see in Sicily which are not reachable by foot or public transportation (or at least not comfortably). But it has nothing to do with the awesomeness of the villa itself. It is just a tip to enhance your experience ;)

This is how a VACATION should look like.

“Amazing Holiday Villa!”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is definitely the best villa I've stayed in ever! The hosts were so welcoming and kind throughout the entire trip!! They took such good care of us, ensuring we knew our way around Carini and Palermo and organised fun trips for us outside the city! They made breakfast for us every morning, to our requests and made sure were were at our utmost comfort at all times! The swimming pool was an amazing bonus - it was very clean and big enough to fit us all doing different activities!

The villa itself was amazing; very spacious with beautifully decorated living rooms and bedrooms. I was personally very pleased with the size of the rooms and it fit all 8 of us girls staying over!! We made a lot of noise and had music but the owner of the villa and his fiance were very laid back and relaxed and ensured we had fun throughout! He even went out of his way to buy us gelato and locally produced ricotta cheese!

I would definitely recommend this villa to people who intend to stay in Sicily - you will love the owners and you will love the villa!

Although we were out to a rocky start travelling from the airport to the villa (always pre-book a taxi to avoid overpriced fares), we were at once amazing by its beauty. Large gates open out to a large two story home decorated with lush Sicilian flora.

We were greeted by Roberto, who lives on the ground floor with his lovely fiancee. They were both here to help us with any trouble we had. Roberto was so sweet, immediately giving us a tour of the villa and offering advice on attractions as well as helping us order taxis and food. What more could you want? He and his fiancee were very open and understanding about any problems or requests we had.

The view from the balcony of the Sicilian landscape was stunning with mountains in the background. The rooms were tidy, well kept and comfortable to sleep in. The toilets were clean and the shower worked perfectly with hot water and body wash provided. The building itself is surrounded by balconies with dining tables, a hammock and potted plants. The swimming pool was large and the water was perfect. Instead of being chlorinated, it was kept hygienic by being slightly salty (not as much as sea water). This meant that we could swim for hours and see underwater without having red eyes. I very much recommend this villa if you wish to have an amazing stay in Sicily!

Il signore gira tanto e purtroppo molti colleghi diranno quello che sono costretto a dire abbiamo cercato di contattare il signore diverse volte perché forse non s iè accorto che non è un albergo e chiediamo sempre l'orario di arrivo per essere sempre pronti , visibilmente scocciato e incurante che arrivato con 3 ore di anticipo la camera era in piena lavorazione la piscina che gestiamo da anni è sempre stato il nostro punto di forza pulita grande attraente immersa in un giardino curato nei mini particolari , le stanze sono naturalmente adiacenti e alla faccia di chi viaggia spesso(?) e evidente che è una casa posso solo accettare la critica per 1 spugna che effettivamente era dimenticata (stanza fatta in tempo reale con il cliente... che aspettava...ma non posso accettare il resto i nostri bagni sono sempre puliti vedete le altre recensioni di turisti di tutto il mondo ...ma si Sto arrivando! putroppo gli italiani non si adattano a niente neanche ad una spugna..per il resto sconsiglio di accogliere il viaggiatore inquisitore che chiaramente non e uso a viaggiare
