Forty minutes from Villa Romana de Casale at Piazza Armerina. Provisions available in Reisi, a 5 minute drive away. Accommodation was excellent, all that we needed to ensure that we had an excellent stay. Superb views to the mountains. Looked after by the parents of the owners. A bowl of home grown grapes, some home grown figs and bottles of water were in the fridge when we arrived.

Perfect surrounding in a secure gated and fenced setting. Amazing views of the countryside and the sea. We saw Some beautiful birds in the garden and if you are up very early there were bunnies and a tortoise too! The property was spotless, clean and in excellent decorative order, very well maintained. The owner was very helpful and we communicated well via google translate. We were told to help ourselves to the olive oil and various dried pasta foods that were in the cupboard, which was great for the first night, although we had stopped at a supermarket on the way. There are 2 very well equipped kitchens at the villa and we used the outside one most of the time. Toaster, dishwasher, coffee machine etc all in excellent condition. The towels and bedding were provided. I would recommend the villa to anyone And will definitely return there for more than a week next time. There's so much history nearby, the valley of temples is a must but there is far more to see, we just didn't have time. There's a restaurant / pizza/ pastries/ drinks about a 10 minute drive away, it's called 3P and is extremely useful. It has basic groceries but ideal for a nice breakfast pastry too. The owner recommended a restaurant called TOTO which was in Gela. It's ideal for a special meal out and the anti pasti is lovely. The "sea front " at Gela has many restaurants and you can get a pizza, drink and a starter for around 10€ . You pay for electricity when you depart, it's not much but there's no need to use the air conditioning until you climb into bed, it's very efficient and you can have it on the lowest setting and it's ideal. We will return for sure. We arrived as guests and left as friends. Thank you Villa Alessia for such a wonderful week.
