We loved it here. The property is light, airy and clean. It has wonderful outside space with a front porch with table and chairs to sit and watch the sunset. The rear garden has an enclosed 'outdoor kitchen' area with a great built in barbecue. The small pool has a view of the sea, and sun loungers. The driveway has an electronic gate so you know your hire car is safe!
The property is situated about 1 kilometre from the seaside town of Cava D'Aliga, which is small and quaint - not too busy. We found all the beaches in this area of Sciliy to be lovely and clean with clear water. At Cava there are 3 small cafes and free parking. Sun loungers are available at €18 for 2 loungers and parasol for the day. Sampeiri beach is about 6km up the road and this is just as good but on a larger scale. If you don't want to sit on the beach, there are many interesting baroque towns within half an hour drive which are wonderful to look around.
There are 2 supermarkets within 10 minutes drive of la Finca
Our family inc kids(22yrs & 17yrs)lol, Were literally thrilled as we turned into electric gated villa grounds.Kaethe the host was very welcoming speaking German italian and much more english that I knew italian! Superb trees, palms,flowers, olive trees in a garden & grounds that will be forever jealous of, surround the accommodation on all sides. Plenty of parking.
The out door spaces excel with the variety of seating, loungers & table options available to choose from in and out of shade.The good sized pool is kept clean both inside and out. kaethe is very discreet in her pool & grounds maintainace. The accom is set to side of small town, but it's budget cost, so should really expect a little traffic & community sounds. This doesn't however detract from it feeling safe and private.
Inside the accom is generous with functional sized bedrooms 2 full bathrooms & washing machine... Which we used daily( August was hot as expected but also very humid!) so only lightest clothes could be worn but no probs, as able to wash & dry in hours.
Fabulous location to see historical caves, amazing architecture in nearby towns or beautiful sandy beaches in nature reserves all within 20mins - 45 mins easy car journey
THE FOLLOWING COMMENTS ARE NOT ABOUT THE ACCOM,WHICH WAS EXCELLENT
**Only warning-Mosquitoes in italy & med there is a new species called TIGER MOSQUITOES. you will need the highest protection even if dont usually get bitten. They shouldn't affect holiday if you have protection. I always react ( have even had two trips to emergency over the years in other countries ) so always take precautions creams sprays candles etc but these mos' bite during day as well as night and causing problems to locals & holiday makers. I used up all my own anti mos' supplies & tried local ones but still ended up in giant red welts.
LUCKILY THE BEAUTIFUL POOL SOLVED ITCHING and kept me cool.
Would go again in a heart beat
