First I have to say that the garden and pool are absolutely fabulous and, as this is where you should spend most of your time, this is really where the 4 stars are earned. The pool is massive, we've been renting villas across Europe for 20 years now, and the pool is the best we've ever had. The garden is well laid out and mature and it was wonderful sitting in the shade of the olive trees watching the dragonflies and the lizards flit about. The large table and parasol is a great spot to sit and eat. In the evening the balcony was a terrific place to sit. There's plenty of entertainment to be had watching the bats feeding on the moths attracted by the spot light above it. It also meant we weren't soaked by the garden sprinklers that come on around midnight. The villa is not large, but is clean (although the cooker needs a scrub), comfortable and perfectly functional. Having a decent parking space that you could lock the gates on was good too. Once the gates are locked you could feel very safe here. The things that detract are 1/ The closeness of the motorway. It's a constant background noise in the day (but you really don't hear it once inside at night). 2/ The wi-fi provided is best described as poor, fortunately we had large enough data packages to get us through the week. 3/ We like to be able to walk to somewhere in the evening, but a car is absolutely essential here. The villa is tucked away down some very narrow back streets and there is nothing within walking distance by way of shops or restaurants. You even have to take a drive to get rid of your rubbish. Finally, I would recommend the owners provide more comprehensive instructions on how things work around the villa. They don't speak English and we barely understand Italian, so it was a bit hit and miss as to whether we got what they were telling us on arrival. (Thank God for Google translate though!) A folder of some sort with clear instructions on things like the villa lighting, pool lights, what to do when the power goes, the washing machine etc would be useful. It could also contain more detail about how things work in Sicily (eg the supermarkets don't open on Sunday afternoons) and where the nearest banks, shops, restaurants and attractions are. Overall, this is a villa I would definitely recommend providing you don't mind driving.

Our plane was delayed and we arrived late, so it was fantastic to arrive to find a feast of lovely cheese, meats, bread and wine. We also appreciated the tour of Caccamo the next morning and to be shown the best butcher and bread shop and restaurants. Caccamo is a small town; very Italian and very friendly. Palermo was great; we took the train from Termini as recommended by Anne and Doug which worked well. Dolce and Gabbana were staging their autumn show which added to the day. Another day we went to Segesta to see the temple and amphitheatre as we were taking one of our sons to the airport. Relaxing at the house was easy as it is very well equipped and really comfortable. The pool is lovely and you can choose sun or shade.We had not visited Sicily before and will definitely go again. Anne and Doug's lovely home is definitely a wonderful place to stay .
