The villa itself was just right for our group of seven with lots of space for everyone and the sea on our doorstep. Nathalie was lovely and really helpful, giving us great advice for our stay. The coast here is stunning with the Zingaro Reservation next to us on one side, the Tonnara at Scopello on the other, and the beautiful clear water of the sea just a short walk from the villa. Our holiday was at the end of the summer season and so everywhere was probably quieter than at high season, which was fine for us, and temperatures were also just right at 28 degrees. High winds on the first couple of days made getting into the sea from rocks a little challenging, but worth it. Once the wind had reduced the swimming was fantastic and especially so at the Tonnara at Scopello which was amazing. The villa was perfect for us to use as a base from which to see some of the amazing sights in the west of Sicily - Erice, Segesta, and San Vito Lo Capo were all within easy reach and worth the drive. We used the local shop on the road from Scopello where, although it was expensive, the fresh produce was very good quality. Castellammare was close enough for general supermarket shopping and Nathalie was very helpful pointing us in the right direction. First time driving in Sicily and was a bit nervous about the local driving but it was fine once we were used to the interesting approach to speed limits and how close people drive behind you! Can't praise Sicily, this area, the villa and Nathalie enough...a superb holiday we would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone.

Peaceful and relaxing. The residence was spotless and had everything needed for a 10 day stay. Our hosts, Nicola and Carmen, were lovely and welcoming. The terrace overlooking the sea is entirely private and there is ready walking access to a private cove from which to swim in clear and clean water. Local amenities are limited so a car is essential. The nearby "Market" has everything you need including an amazing array of local cheeses, local wine and meat and fabulous local vegetables, olive oil, and fruit products. Easy vehicular access to nearby towns for days out. We went in early September and if it is solitude you want and a place to relax this time of year this is it. We will return.
