Once was not enough

  • 4 of 5

We were so happy here in 2013 that we returned in 2014--and enjoyed it almost as much. (The weather wasn't as perfect, and mosquitoes were a problem.)

Although we stayed in the same apartment as last time, Marco has added Galatea, which is somewhat smaller but has a larger terrace, as well as a larger shower (a real boon). He was also working on Aci upstairs. No terrace there but it looks like it's going to be cute and does have sea views.

Returning to a place you loved is always risky--because it may not live up to your memories--but I'd go back a third time. Authentic rustic charm isn't that easy to find nowadays.

Villa Cavallaro really was a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We rented Villa Cavallaro on our first trip to Sicily this April, and it really was like having a home away from home. The apartment more than lived up to its description and the photos, from the beautiful terrace with its sea-and-palm tree views (not to mention an ancient cistern) to the rooms furnished with antiques to complement the Sicilian-tile floors and overall feel.

Our host, Marco Cavallaro, helped make the experience memorable. He'd thoughtfully stocked the fridge with a few breakfast essentials, as well as a selection of typical liqueurs, including a 60-yr-old one made by the family. A basket on the dining room table was laden with blood oranges and lemons from a relative's garden. Fresh linens were provided as needed, and the apt. was cleaned weekly. And practically every day Marco asked if there was anything we needed.

I would return in a heartbeat, but there are a few quirks worth knowing about, among them slightly tricky locks (on doors made by Marco's father) and a rather small shower. Also, the busy roadway out front can be difficult to cross. Still, the charms more than compensated for these minor shortcomings. And did I mention the greeting committee? Three friendly Sicilian labradors.

Wunderschönes Sizilien

  • 5 of 5

Villa Cavallaro, ein wunderschönes Ferien Appartement, in das wir immer wieder zurück kommen würden! Das Haus liegt in einem traumhaften Garten direkt am Meer. Es ist super ausgestattet und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet.

Trotz später Ankunft wurden wir sehr herzlich von der Familie empfangen!

Der Kühlschrank war gefüllt, für ein erstes Frühstück und wir wurden im Laufe der Woche immer wieder mit sizilianischen Spezialitäten versorgt.

Marco war sehr um unser Wohlergehen bemüht und stand uns immer mit Rat und Tat beiseite.

Wir können es nur weiterempfehlen, einzigst die große Straße vor dem Haus könnte für manch einen problematisch sein.

Viele Dank lieber Marco und Familie, wir freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen!

Pasqua ad Acitrezza

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso le vacanze di Pasqua in questa bella situazione sul mare ad Acitrezza ospiti della famiglia Cavallaro. L'appartamento davvero confortevole e molto curato ci ha accolto per circa sei giorni, durante i quali ci siamo rilassati con lo stupendo panorama ed il rumore di sottofondo del mare. La posizione davvero invidiabile pienamente godibile dal delizioso terrazzino e la gradevole ma discreta presenza dei proprietari a fatto di questa vacanza un momento da ricordare.

Splendida esperienza

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso il Capodanno in questa incantevole abitazione e speriamo di poter ripetere l'esperienza anche in futuro. La casa è accogliente, ben arredata ed estremamente funzionale...Per non parlare del soppalco, una vera chicca!! Ideale per soggiorni estivi, ma consigliatissima anche in periodo invernale. Romantici e non, l'alba dal meravglioso terrazzo è un momento suggestivo da non perdere.Ciliegina sulla torta? Proprietari squisiti, cordiali e sempre disponibili a soddisfare le vostre richieste. Dieci e lode a questa piccola perla.
