The spaciousnous of the villa accommodation and garden with a good sized pool is the first thing you appreciate on arriving at Vilia Livia. Myself, my wife and three adult daughters occupied 4 of the large well appointed double bedrooms including one in one of the two self-catered garden annex properties next to the villa. A large outdoor covered BBQ area next to the pool was used for many of our 'al fresco' evening meals beside the pool. The choice of where to sit down and eat a meal was vast. A choice of 4 locations outside, an enormous conservatory along one side of the villa and at least 3 different dining locations inside the villa meant we ware spoilt for choice. Although we were only 5 , with a larger party there would be no difficulty in finding your own space amongst the choice of rooms in this three storey property. Partanna itself is off the tourist track with only a limited number of sites for visitors to see. However, you are well positioned to visit beaches on the south or north coasts as well as coastal towns on the west. When you visit Trapani make sure you take the cable car up to the hill-top village of Erice and avoid the middle of the day heat when you visit the vast temple sites at Selinunte and Agrigento. It is also easy to reach the wine centres of Menfi and Marsala. Owners Livia and Filippo could not have been more kind, hospitable and helpful. Minor issues with the much used wi-fi and one of the showers were very promptly dealt with and Livia was always only a text message away. Picking figs from the tree, and enjoying prickly pear for the first time, added to the enjoyment of the well-tended garden full of date palms, fruit trees and luscious lawns with a wonderful heated pool in the middle. Even during the two days we had rain, the villa offered a stunning panoramic view of the approaching storm clouds from a top floor room.
Overall Villa Livia in certainly a property we hope to return to with a larger group of extended family as an ideal place to both stay and relax and a base to see parts of the magnificent Sicilian countryside.
