Lovely relaxing place with great views

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The property is so well equipped and it made it so easy to self cater with a few basics already there-salt, pepper, herbs, oil and a few other bits. Views are splendid and the garden was really pretty and well maintained. So many butterflies in the garden and lizards too, just great for wildlife. Lazing in the hammock under olive trees was divine. Bed was very comfortable and air-con meant temperature was fine too. We had a lovely welcome from our hosts when we arrived and the place was really clean and welcoming. You do need a car really as all the beaches and places of interest are a bit too far to walk but if you have transport it is ideal. The beaches in the area are fabulous and best snorkelling ever in the Nature Reserve which is a short drive away. Highly recommended.

Spectacular!

5 of 5
This place is absolutely amazing. It is located near Castellammare del golfo, but completely secluded and private up in the hill. The small house is lovely, clean and has everything you need. The pool and the outdoor space is gorgeous. Loredana, our host, was also lovely and responded within minutes to any request. I would love to come back!
