Excellent location with a spectacular view! A nice and quiet yard for both adults and kids. One should have a car available to reach center of Sciacca. La coppia, Giuseppe e Irina, è molto gentile. Grazie a lei!

The owners have thought of everything you could need. They have been most helpful and welcoming. The tour of the town was most useful, giving us a real sense of where to go and what to see! The villa is very secure and everything including the pool is very clean. Thank you for a lovely stay

                                                                                                      Villa Mara is absoluut een plek om van te houden: wij werden er verliefd op. De on-meditteraans grote ramen die heel veel licht binnenlaten en een geweldig uitzicht bieden naar zowel het dorpje als de zee, de olijfgaard rondom, de rust, inderdaad, de vogeltjes en de krekels, zonsondergang vanaf je terras. Geweldig. Toch is het huis niet perfect. Isabelle en Francesco gaven dat bij aankomst ook direct aan: het huis heeft jaren leeg gestaan, het is met vrienden weer opgeknapt, en het heeft wat kleine onvolkomenheden. Die zijn in enkele gevallen te onbeduidend om te noemen, zoals de deur van de koelkast die je even moet optillen voordat deze sluit, de voordeur die klappert als het waait – wij staken er een enkele keren dubbelgevouwen A4 onder –, de douchekop die niet te verstellen is en waarvoor je met je 1 meter 83 even door de knieën moet … Toch 5 sterren? Absoluut! Deze zaken vallen weg als je kijkt wat je ervoor terugkrijgt. Francesco en Isabella doen er alles aan om de villa nog comfortabeler te krijgen. Bijvoorbeeld de achterdeur heeft sinds een vorige review een extra schuif gekregen waardoor iedereen de deur op slot krijgt. En het keukenblad en de koelkast lagen zo vol met eten en benodigdheden dat we de eerste avond – we kwamen in het donker aan – er niet meer uit hoefden om boodschappen te doen. Olie, azijn, brood, beleg, pasta, saus, water, wijn, … alles aanwezig! Overigens is de kronkelweg naar het huis gewoon geasfalteerd, zie reviews hiervoor; er zitten hier en daar wel wat gaten in. Onze Fiat 500 had er geen moeite mee. De rust is geweldig, in de olijvenpluktijd kwam er hooguit elk kwartier een auto voorbij, voor de rest: stil! Capada is een goed restaurant in Ribera, Lido Garibaldi aan het strand in Ericlea moet geweldig zijn maar er was stranderosie en daarom was het gesloten; daarentegen vonden we het strand van Bovo Marina geweldig, haast een privé-strand zo rustig, 3 kilometer gelopen zonder iemand tegen te komen. Aan het begin Solera Beach, een heerlijk strandtentje met verse vis en aardige bediening, auto staat op honderd meter afstand. Voor 30 euro met z’n tweeën geluncht. En de zee: in oktober was het 25 graden, de zee 23 graden, niemand te zien …. Ongekend!
