Wonderful house for the whole family!!!

  • 5 out of 5
We couldn't have been luckier with another house for our first trip to Sicily. Upon arrival, we had a grand welcome by Sandra and Piero, the owners, themselves. They are very proud of their house, with good reason and wanted to show us around themselves. The house and the grounds are BEAUTIFUL!! They also set out a few baskets in the kitchen with local treats: cheese, prosecco, salami, honey, olive oil, lemons and tomato sauce (the last 3 from their own grounds). The house is very clean, charmingly decorated and includes everything that you could need for the vacation. We were with grandparents and 4 children (ages 12-5) and there was something for everyone, from reading in the shade on the comfortable lounge chairs to playing voetbal or table tennis, to swimming in the pool to walking around the grounds and neighborhood taking in the gorgeous scenery. The views from the house are open and breathtaking! The house has no obstuctions around so you can see the beautiful nature all around you. Polizzi Generosa, the closest town, can be seen from the yard and the view is both by night and day is an enjoyable sight. We went to Polizzi Generosa daily for bread/groceries, but also a few times for dinner. The tiny town has everything you need. About a 20 minute ride away are the beaches of Cefalu. Within 15 minutes in the opposite direction are beautiful trails for hiking. In short, a week here was not long enough. When we return to Sicily, we will definitely stay again in Sandra and Piero's house. We loved the house and our vacation in Sicily!

ein Traum!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Dieses Haus ist ein Traum. Es ist hervorragend ausgestattet, mit viel Liebe neu renoviert und in altem Landhausstil eingerichtet.
Wer absolute Ruhe sucht, wird sie hier finden. Der pool wurde von unseren Töchtern ausgiebig genutzt.
Wir haben relativ wenig vom Norden der Insel gesehen, bis auf zwei Wanderungen in der wunderschönen Madonie, da es einfach zu schade war, dieses Haus zu verlassen.
Sandra ist eine sehr aufmerksame, freundliche und unkomplizierte Vermieterin, die uns mit einigen lokalen Produkten verwöhnt hat.
Dieses Haus ist sehr zu empfehlen.!!!!

Great stay in this beautiful house

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely stay in this very beautiful house.

The house has a lot of space and the garden is very well equipped for children. The house itself is in a very good state and the owners are very helpful.
The location is very good for hiking in the Madonia.
The view from the terrace is very beautiful.
Our only problem was the weather : April 2013 was rainy, but the owners were very kind regarding the heating. So, a very good stay, we sure will have to come back.
