“Vast villa and grounds for a perfect pool & beach holiday.”
Reviewed August 22, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The villa and the local area are outstanding - we are already thinking about our next visit! The pool at Villa Kaukana is stunning; this was the main base for our holiday. There was plenty of room for all 10 of our party to be in it together but it also made you feel like a millionaire, swimming on your own in the early morning or late at night. Sicily is hot in August but there was plenty of shade for those who wanted it; the pool has a large gazebo at either end and there are plenty of shady verandas around the villa itself.
The indoor facilities are simple and functional - there are 3 separate kitchens, 4 bathrooms and plenty of bedrooms. This meant that our teenagers could have separate rooms and a bit of privacy and that people weren't getting under each other's feet. You can cook indoors if you want, but why would you want to? We used the double outdoor barbecue on 8 of the nights and ate out in Punta Secca the other 6. Restaurants, cafes and bars are all cheap and nowhere is set up to rip you off.
Punta Secca itself is a beautiful seaside village and far exceeded our expectations. There are numerous bars and a range of fantastic pizzerias and restaurants. Sea food is a speciality - Enzo a Mare is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in and is located right on the beach. The shell fish is out of this world.
There are lots of typical Sicilian hill towns to explore within a 30-45 minute drive; you can explore as much or as little as you want. Valium might be required however after negotiating some of the hairpin bends in your hire-car!
The beach is a 5 minute walk away from the villa. Although there is only a thin strip of sand, it stretches for miles - quiet spots are easy to find. The local beach bar is cheap and in an idyllic location. Walking along the beach is the best way to get into Punta Secca at night - it takes about 20 minutes but is an extremely romantic way to return home after a great night out.
Rosario lives on site and is available for help or advice if required. His English is excellent. We hardly saw him over the fortnight; it certainly didn't intrude on our holiday in any way. The pool was cleaned, bins emptied and collected discretely during our stay.
Overall the whole experience was brilliant. There are hardly any English in this corner of Sicily at all, but all the locals are extremely welcoming, many speak good English, and they even tried to help us with our Italian!
Thank you Rosario and family for making this such a memorable holiday.

“Beautiful but a bit odd to a British eye”

The villa was beautiful, modern and clean. The pool was large and immaculate but unheated so a bit chilly in late October. The nearby beach, 5 mins walk, was sandy and clean, ideal for our small children. The grounds were extensive - about an acre - with well-tended lawns and plenty of trees for shade, a playground for the children and twin barbecues to feed our party of 14. The pool was securely fenced so no worries about the children getting in. We were surprised at the things we would expect to find in a kitchen that weren't provided - oven, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, kettle. By late October the evenings were turning cold so the lack of lounge seating indoors was inconvenient though earlier in the year sitting outside on the extensive terraces would be ideal.
