The outdoor spaces are very spacious with two verandas- one at the front of the villa and one at the back. The front veranda is like an additional spacious living room dotted with comfortable chairs, and the veranda at the back is assigned to the dining area and a second kitchen. All the outdoor furniture is in very good taste. The garden is spectacularly big with palm trees and olive trees and lots of enormous terracotta pots with beautifully colored plants. The residence is on a hillside, therefore, is very quiet and peaceful and if you have a contemplative nature that is the place for you. Moreover, at night the chirping sound of the crickets are a-kind-of lullaby. Both landlords are very nice and helpful; they gave us helpful tips on local life and places to eat. They were friendly and willing to satisfy our needs when we asked for an iron and iron-board. Overall, a very comfortable and happy stay and we highly recommend the villa and locality.

We have two children aged 12 and 10, so needless to say the big hit with them was the private pool which is kept in pristine condition. A huge thank you to both Cinzia and Giovanni our hosts. They are super friendly, but not intrusive, and told us about all the sights we should see. The house is perfectly sized for a party of four and very homely with everything we required to make our stay comfortable, plus the two essentials, air conditioning and wifi. The location as far as we were concerned is glorious. It's quite rural and very peaceful with superb views from the roof terrace towards the sea, but a short drive and you a quickly in the buzzing seaside resort of San Vito lo Capo. We enjoyed several beach days but loved coming back to the sanctuary of our private pool and garden. We have had a seriously relaxing holiday and would highly recommend this property for people who like peace and quiet. There is a very authentic Sicilian restaurant within walking distance which is well worth a visit or two. Cinzia & Giovanni, it's 5 stars from us. Giovanni, sorry my coffee was terrible, next time I will have had more practice!
