Everything about our stay was perfect. Anne and I exchanged many e-mails prior to our stay and they were always answered quickly and her passion for Sicily shone through. The fridge on our arrival was full of delicious local produce, wines, beers and proseco. This was really appreciated after our long journey and a lovely welcome. Anne went to the trouble of buying lots of gluten free products including fresh bread and pasta as I have coeliac disease. The villa was immaculately clean and had everything we could possibly want and need. On the first morning I was lucky enough to see a beautiful sunrise, the spectacular view really took my breath away. Anne and Doug took us around Caccamo, showing us the butchers, supermarkets and local restaurants on the first morning, this was very helpful to us. Out two teenage sons spent time at Lake Rosamarina jet ski-ing, kayaking and speed boating, they loved it! We also visited Cefalu and walked up La Rocca, where there are amazing views from the top, thoroughly recommended. Our visit to the Madonie mountain range was fabulous, with stunning scenery everywhere you look. We also had magical times in Mondello, Scopello, Zingaro nature reserve, Caccamo castle and Monreale. Please do not hesitate to book this gorgeous villa, you will not regret it. Thank you Anne and Doug for a truly wonderful holiday in Sicily, you made it so special for us all.

We went with our two daughters who loved the pool and the gardens. The house is really well equipped and spacious and the two bathrooms really suited us and our two daughters. The owners came to check on us regularly and gave us a delicious chocolate cake which was an unexpected treat. The wifi was very handy and we used the DVD player most days. As a family of foodies we had no complaints with the kitchen equipment or the outside cooking space. This was one of the best equipped houses we have stayed in Italy. There is plenty to do closeby. We spent a day at the waterpark and another in search of the locations used in the Godfather which were not too far away. The local town could have done with some more amenities but there are some excellent shops full of local produce. All round a very enjoyable stay.
