“one of our best stays ever!”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had the casale dell ulivo from Margo and Johann reserved for the last part of our hiliday in Sicily for 4 days.
We regret that we did or could not reserve this great place for the whole week, setting in real quiet and agricultural area.
No loud barking dogs, Karaoke at night, no disco sounds or garbage belts like in some other places in Sicily like Balestrate.. This is a much cleaner area!
Only nature and a small real sicilian village with all the amenities, even a small but well equiped supermarket.
Great swimming spots nearby like Margharita bay and others with crystal clear blue water.
The house itself was like a dream for us, very private and spacious and with all the things you need..
Although the owners where not there at the time of our stay the contact was always there and very to the point and friendly.
Gave lots of advise!
Wish all the stays in Sicily where like that.

“Beautiful region, nice, spacious house, garden with a beatiful view over olive groves and wineyard, most friendly host”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Very nice region, I loved the countryside with its fields, wineyards and olive groves. A convenient starting point to explore beauties of western Sicily. House is really spacious, clean, beds great, big garden. Kids enjoyed the hammock! Very friendly hosts, helpful from the very beginning with tips for local specialities. Personal attention. Would love to come again and absolutely recommed the property.

“Great location in the olive groves, really helpful owners!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A really good location nestled in the olive groves and vineyards but also very close to the village amenities. The accommodation is bigger than it appears in the photos and we really enjoyed having the shutters open to enjoy the countryside views even when it rained! The owners are incredibly helpful, emailing ideas, answering questions and even sent homemade olive soap after the visit.

There are interesting places to visit within a short drive.
We thoroughly recommend:
- a trip to the hilltop ancient town of Erice, park close to the cable car station in Trapani and take the cable car for a fantastic view. Watch out for some "interesting" driving in the city, you need to have your wits about you but it is well worth the visit!
- the Zingaro nature reserve. There are some lovely little coves and beaches. Take your lunch and swimming things, wear reasonable footwear on the hike to them.

All in all a great place - would love to go back!

“Perfect tranquil countryside villa”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 for a stay in May 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Our first visit to Sicily and we are so pleased that we chose Casa del Ulivio in this lovely North West area of the island. The villa is in a great tranquil position with views of the vineyards and olive groves. It is also very conveniently positioned with basic shops and a good restaurant and Pizzeria within a few minutes walk. It is extremely well equipped and the owner and his family who live in the village are very welcoming and helpful. There are some good coastal resorts and historic sites within a short drive.

“Excellent accomodation, interesting surroundings - a wonderful experience!”

people found this review helpful

The cottage is spacious, clean and well taken care of. Amenities are close by, we found everything we needed for our stay in the town within walking distance. The location is perfect as a base for exploring the wonderful sights and locations of western Sicily - beaches, history, arts, and local culinary delights abound! The cottage also provided for wonderful evenings relaxing by the fireplace. The owners were really helpful and were in constant email contact with us - ask them for hints and tips as they can really guide you around to some of the best spots!

Liked best: The location is one of the cottage's best features - perfect as base for exploring all of western Sicily.
Liked least: Public transport is possible but connections are not that frequent - hiring a car is advisable.
