We had amazing time here at this lovely and peaceful farm property. The owners are probably the sweetest and the most kind people you will ever meet, who are also happy to help if needed.
There was plenty to do in the nearby cities or ancient villages and we especially enjoyed Torre Salsa beach which is only 30 minutes drive away. Ribera (nearest town) offers plenty of nice restaurants and supermarkets shall you decide to stay in and cook food.
If you going to stay here please do ensure you hire a car as it's very remote.
Over all we had lovely time in here and are happy to come back any time.
Lovely peaceful location (down a very bumpy track from Ribera!). We loved sitting on the balcony (particularly at sunset) which has far reaching views towards the sea and mountains. Please note the sea is not a 10 minute walk as suggested by one reviewer - we put this to the test despite our doubts - and gave up after 40 mins of walking down a track that didn't really lead anywhere.
Ribera is only really good for supermarket shopping (Lidl is the largest and has the best choice). During our 2 week stay, some of the places we visited include Sciacca, Caltabellotta (highly recommend Ristorante M.A.T.E.S for an authentic Sicilian, home cooked 4 course set meal for around 30 euros a head), Valley of the Temples, Mazara del Vallo and Scala dei Turchei (also recommend). For an extra special meal, head to Cantine de Gregorio (the other side of Sciacca) - where you can get a tour of the winery and a set dinner with wine tastings for 50 euros a head in a lovely location. Absolutely worth travelling that bit further and not bad value for fine wining and dining (all included in the price)!
Francesco was always at the end of a text/phone call and quick to solve any queries or problems. The living area is spacious and the air con in the bedrooms was very welcome in the 36C July heat! Our only negative was the very small shower however it did not impact our enjoyment of the villa. Already dreaming of being back having returned to a dreary British summer...
