We spent a blissful two weeks in August staying at the villa and really couldn't have been happier. The villa is immaculate, well-equipped and rather larger than the photographs online suggest. We arrived in the blistering Sicilian summer heat to find a cool sanctuary, with a delicious tray of local fruit and bread to sample (plus some delicious red wine) and everything we needed for a relaxing stay, from the spotless pool to the abundance of towels. A really nice touch was the presence of inflatable pool toys, which helped to keep our children amused along with a wealth of loungers and chairs.
The main road through the area is near enough to be very easily accessible but far enough that you're entirely unaware of its existence while relaxing by the pool. There's a reasonably large supermarket five minutes up the road and a rather larger Conad hypermarket in Agrigento at the Centro Commerciale Città dei Templi.
Agrigento and the Valle dei Templi (a world heritage site of Greek and Roman origin) are about 15 minutes away by car and both the town and the temples are well worth a visit - there are, of course, innumerable restaurants to visit, every one of which that we visited was first rate and, to British wallets, extremely reasonably-priced. Speaking of restaurants, La Taberna in nearby Racalmuto is convenient and lovely, while our (vegetarian) children really enjoyed Opera in Agrigento (as, admittedly, did we!). Further afield, Baglio Balata in Enna is lovely and, if you find yourself in Syracusa with vegetarians in need of sustenance, Zenzero is a gem.
We tried two water parks while in Sicily, Scivolandia Cammarata and Etnaland. Both were spotlessly clean and absolutely great fun! The former was smaller and a little friendlier while the latter was immense and some of the rides were not for the faint-hearted!
The villa was a perfect base for our exploration of Sicily - the only shame is that we had to leave!
The stay at the Villa was excellent and Tarek was always very attentive and helpful. The rooms were spacious and very clean together with clean bathrooms and ground floors were spotless especially the kitchen area.
Tarek came to the Villa on each day to attend to the swimming pool and in and around the Villa grounds and many times he had swept and mopped up before we had got up for breakfast. But he was not intrusive and was always polite and willing to answer any questions we had asked him. Throughout our stay we had a brilliant time at the Villa and would certainly visit Sicliy/Villa again.
Thank you for a fantastic holiday and a fantastic Villa, just sorry I could only give 5 stars so I'm giving 100% 10/10
