Stunningly beautiful location, as others have commented. What a view over the Tyrrhenian Sea!
The outside facilities were really super - plenty of places to sit, relax and enjoy the view. The outside, eating area was comfortable and well shaded even when the sun was at it's height.
We really loved the swimming pool, very well designed and very clean - great to be in as the sun sets, being an infinity pool it made the best of the fab view!
Villa Dammuso is peaceful, tranquil and away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy areas so you do need a car, this is what we wanted. It is close to the Nebrodi National park with birds and wildlife all around.
The villa was clean and tidy and ready for us when we arrived with a welcome bottle of wine and local biscuits - a lovely touch.
We were 2 people and the space was fine for us, however I think that it would be cramped inside for more than 2, although the outside space is more than adequate.
The one thing that was an issue for me was that when we visited it was very hot and humid and as a result there were a lot of biting insects, which despite a variety of measures were still problematic for me. As a result of this in the evenings I needed to stay indoors for much of the time and there isn't anywhere comfortable to sit and relax, as opposed to outdoors which is very well equipped indeed. I realise that this may not be a problem at other times of the year nor for other people.
Stefania (the owner) was extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. We were provided with all of the information that we needed and queries were responded to straight away. This was backed up with very useful written information.
A lovely introduction to Sicily - thank-you!
The picture of the pool and amazing views were what attracted us to this villa on the Northern coast. The position was ideal for visiting Messina, Cefalu and Palermo. Guiseppe and his daughter Anna were extremely helpful both before and during our stay in ensuring that we were informed of the location, facilities and local.
The swimming pool and its position was outstanding with a great seating area for soaking up the sun and relaxing. We had a proper wood burning pizza oven available for our use which was a fab experience.
The villa itself was extremely spacious, commanding a fantastic view across the coast, and providing 3 excellent bedrooms.
However many of the internal fitments (plus some of the pool chairs) were extremely dated and should have been replaced as they were 'not fit for purpose' and breakage would be charged for. The internal lounging chairs were uncomfortable and the shower needed careful attention as it drained very slowly and could flood the area. Air conditioning was available to cool the inside of the villa.
If the above had not been a concern to us during our stay then we would have easily given the review 5 stars or higher, due to how spectacular it was.
