“Sikelia Luxury villa”
Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

Very well equipped for a large family or group. Beautiful surrounds with a view from its hillside setting in an Olive grove and with lovely mountains in the background.

Villa is elegant very clean and well kitted out with cooking facilities and home washing utilities.
Could do with a kettle and a teapot to cater for tea drinkers. Coffee drinkers have no problems.
Beds are not hotel 5 star standards but comfortable.

The pool is excellent and the setting is beautiful for swimming. Top marks from all. I am sure more active individuals can have run or biking excursions from the villa.

You can drive to Palermo, Cefalu and other baroque sites with ease. Ideal for self-catering foodie holiday makers! Food and produce, fish markets and local bakeries arr all within as short drive. There is a massive outdoor woodfired pizza oven and bbq trolley...ambient lighting for night partying included.

Our host is very helpful and will respond to any queries within a reasonable time.

Highly recommended villa and location.

“Everything was great!!!”
Reviewed August 23, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Very good accommodation, great pool, big and clean!!! The house is big, airco is great, sleeping rooms are very nice and the bathrooms also!!! Benny is a great person, he helps where he can. He is also a great cooker. The fishdinner he makes for us was so yummy!!! Thanks a lot for the free sicilian desserts!!! The boat trip was so excited and beautiful. It was a lovely day. Thanks a lot that we could stay a few hours longer because our flight was in the evening. Benny, you are a great person and your daughter is so sweet. It was a great vacation.

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed November 3, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a great stay here in early October 2016. The best point about the property is the outdoor space which is extensive and well-equipped. The pool is a really good size and it was warm enough to swim every morning. Benny was good enough to dig out some inflatable floats for the children to use (2.5 and 0.5 years) which was a really nice touch. The outdoor space also has a good manual BBQ and pizza oven. Benny even supplied the fuel (wood) which was nice. Indoors, the downstairs apartment is very spacious and modern. It has particularly good communal space for lounging and eating. The kitchen was fairly well equipped. The automatic coffee maker was a real luxury and we used this a lot! The kitchen cooker wasn't working during our stay but this wasn't an issue since there was another one in the utility room we used instead. Bathrooms were also very good. Showers modern, powerful and always hot. It also has a bath which was useful for bathing our little ones! In terms of the location, the house is very well placed for visiting small Northern coastal towns such as San Nicola, Casteldaccia and Bagheria. There are also some good beaches nearby. We made a couple of longer excursions to Cefalù and Palermo. (There's a good train service which runs through local towns which was very useful for avoiding parking in Palermo!) Due to its location near to the A19 main road, we also managed to get down to hilltop town Enna and the mosaics at Villa Romana del Casale. This was a very long day out though! In summary, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property. We had a fantastic week and would love to return some day!

“Great place, fantastic swimming pool”
Reviewed September 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Back home again from our 2 weeks' holidays. We were pleasant surprised when we arrived at Sikelia Luxury Home. We loved the house and garden, and not to forget the great swimming pool. The house was fully equipped and we could use the barbecue and pizza oven as well. As from the start we felt welcome and enjoyed the peaceful and pleasant environment. We went to St Nicola L'Arena for our groceries. There are nice restaurants in the neighbourhood. We explored the island: Palermo, Monreale and Cefalu is nearby. We also went to the vulcano The Etna which was convenient to do via the high way. Also we went to Agrigento. Thank you Benny for your kind help and welcoming us at your home. You did an excellent job to start up our holidays. And special thanks for the groceries you bought for us as a start. Much appreciated! If you are looking for a nice place nearby Palermo, don't look any further, this is definetely the place to be. The house/place is even more pleasant than you will see on the pictures and the owners are excellent hosts.

“A wonderfully quiet and luxurious villa in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed August 5, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed one week in this beautiful villa and I can highly recommend it to others. The owner was particularly attentive right from when we first made the booking, helping us with directions and on arrival provided a warm and sincere welcome. A bottle of preosecco in the fridge was a lovely touch a long day travelling! That helpfulness continued through our stay and he even helped out with some local administration issues after we left (Benny - you're a star)!
We are a family with young children and the secluded location a few kilometres up the hill away from the coast was perfect for us. The setting is secluded and framed by the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. We spent many peaceful evenings under the stars with the lights of Palermo twinkling in the distance. Our daughter was also delighted to make friends with the family's little children.
The house is wonderfully spacious, spotlessly clean and very tastefully and luxuriously appointed. The grounds are huge and beautiful with olive groves, two large terraces and an outhouse with barbecue and wood fired oven. I'm a keen swimmer and I cannot fail to mention the large pool; very different to the extended bath-tubs you find in a lot of villas, This one you can actually swim in properly!
You'll need a car and the location is good for both Palermo and Cefalu and a great base for exploring inland.
If you want buzzing nightlife, it's not for you, but if you want a peaceful, relaxing holiday in a beautiful villa with a great pool, beautiful views and friendly folks to help and advise you then look no further.
