A perfect location and a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The very friendly and welcoming owners did all they could to provide us with information and support when necessary.

The villa, in a great setting, was well equipped and handily situated as a base for touring. The garden, overlooking the Mediterranean was full of lovely flowering shrubs (e.g. hibiscus, oleander and bougainvillaea) providing a relaxing and peaceful spot for doing nothing. The outdoor spaces had both shade and sun, ideal for eating al fresco.

The house was clean and comfortable with a wonderful view of the sea which was only a five minute walk away, The sandy beach was clean, the sea crystal clear and safe to swim in. . Nearby restaurants in Portopalo provided good and reasonably priced food. The villa was well-placed for access to the small town of Menfi for groceries,sightseeing in Selinunte and further afield e.g. Segesta and Palermo. Car essential.

Immaculate property, great, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We came with two children aged 12 and 10. Maurizio and his Mother met us as arranged, they are both very charming and welcoming hosts. The house is set on a private lane so very quiet and literally 2 minutes down to the beach. The house is very clean, tidy and well equipped. Exactly as described on the web site. Lovely garden in which to relax.

Nice walks along the beach in both directions. children very happy playing in the sea and the dunes.

Vittorios fish restaurant is very good and walkable from the house - very generous portions! All in all an excellent property. thansks Maurizio.

Overlooking Portopalo beach

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed one night in Portopalo on a short visit last October and were taken with the rugged coast and the superb restaurant, Da Vittorio’s on the beach, so we specifically wanted a villa early this May in this area. We were not disappointed. This villa is very secure with fencing and gates on a hidden private road. It is surrounded with a lovely garden, flowers, butterflies and birds, has a large terrace with sea views and seating and is clean and very spacious inside with two bedrooms, a good sized modern kitchen, living room and bathroom. 150m down a steepish private road to the natural beach and dunes complete with lovely marine vegetation, and also well hidden off the main Portopalo-Menfi road. In early May Portopalo itself is a very sleepy village with very little open, but with Da Vittorio’s in sight, we were in heaven. The beach was virtually empty all week Easy access for Selinunte, Marzara sur Vallo, Sciacca and Agrigento and right in the heart of a good wine area. We shall be returning.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My Mother and I stayed here for a wk in September. We had the downstairs apt, upstairs was empty so we had the entire property to ourselves and it was a beautiful place to stay. The weather apart from the first couple of rainy days was sunny with a lovely warm breeze and although we had every intention of heading out to visit Agrigento and Marsala, in the end it was just so relaxing at the apartment that apart from visiting Sciacca and Selinunte, we did very little. The beach is close, but down (and up) a pretty steep road, my Mother is in her seventies and managed well but it was also possible to drive the car halfway down which we did. The beach is amazing, wide golden expanse of sand with very few people around and the water, though cold, was the clearest i think i have ever experienced. There is a very good fish restaurant 2 minutes along the beach, Vittorio, where we ate twice and both times found it to be excellent food and good service and also quite reasonable, around 50 euros for the two of us for a good meal with wine, bread and water. We did not find anywhere much else open in Portopalo at this time of year, most places had shut for the season but you could easily head to Menfi which was a bit busier. Menfi also had a very good Penny supermarket just outside the town where you can stock up. It is handy to know that most shops do shut for siesta betwen 1400 and 1530 hrs so bear that in mind. We also had a very handy and well stocked small minimarket and adjoining fruit and veg stall just along the main road from the apt towards Portopalo. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful and you could find most basic requirements here including a good bottle of wine, bread and a deli counter. The apartment itself was light, airy, clean and had everything you could need. The kitchen is well stocked with all utensils, there is a washing machine and full cooker. The outside space and gardens are just beautiful, the plants are well established and healthy and the whole area has been really well built and finished beautifully. There is a barbecue area, a large covered dining area, space for numerous cars if needed, and the terrace has table, chairs, deck chairs and an amazing view over the bay. It is easy to find shade as the terrace has the overhang from the upstairs apt so my Mum could sit in the shade whilst i sunbathed on one of the many long cushions to be found around the property. I would highly recommend a stay here! Thankyou Maurizio and your Mum.

Relaxing seaside holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a relaxing seaside holiday.

The house is in a fantastic location - on a little private road (6 or 7 houses) surrounded by open fields, which leads down to the sea. It is very peaceful - we saw maybe 3 cars drive past the whole week we were there.

The house itself is simple but well equipped and immaculately clean, with wonderful views.

We particularly liked the outdoor eating area - a beautiful big marble topped table under a pergola, with a pizza oven, barbecue and sink, surrounded by colourful raised flower beds. And the outdoor shower (with hot water) made it easy not to trail sand into the house when we came back from the beach.

It is less than 5 minutes stroll down to the beach, which has fine white sand (perfect for sandcastles!) and was always uncrowded. On weekdays we sometimes almost had it to ourselves. It shelves gently into the sea, so is very safe for children. The sea was beautifully clear, and we saw shoals of tiny fish swimming around our legs, which delighted our boys.

We were welcomed by Maurizio's mother, who was charming and very helpful and recommended some excellent local restaurants (our favourite was, conveniently, just 10 mins walk along the beach).

This is a lovely area and the house is an ideal base for exploring it - the Greek temples at Selinunte are about 30 mins away, Agrigento is an easy day trip, and the local towns are full of interest.

Highly recommended.

The Villa is located near the beach on a hill overlooking the whole beach. In a sunny location at only 200 meters from the sea the villa has a large terrace, very large garden, barbecue, outdoor living area well stocked and equipped and is totally independent. The use of the garden and all the accessories are exclusive and relevance of the villa.

The town of Portopalo of menfi is world famous not only for the beautiful sea (he won it for 12 consecutive years the Blue Flag award as the cleanest sea) for the excellent wines produced by large wineries such Settesoli, Rallo, Duke of Salaparuta Tasca Lanza, etc.

The area is also ideal to be able to visit the most important archaeological sites and museums in Sicily (Selinunte, Erice, Valley of the Temples, Sciacca, Gibellina, etc).

We guarantee you a wonderful holiday!
