The extensive terraces belvedere of Villa Council offer the opportunity to enjoy a heavenly view with -spettacolare- and unique view of the vast gulf-termitano that gives the feeling of being immersed in the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea and on the other side of the scale top of the charming Monte San Calogero.

Oasis of calm

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival in Termini Imerese we were met at the cathedral by Pietro and his wife Rosella. We followed them to their home through the winding streets and came upon an oasis of calm. Each morning we would awake to a rising sun over the sea , followed by a dip in the pool. Breakfast was enjoyed on the veranda . Grounds are beautifully decorated with replicas of Roman sculptures. The facilities are very good and are set up for large parties. Access to the autrostrada is only 10 minutes away, once you learn the way. As a tourist this was a challenge we learned quickly with Rosetta's help. The bedrooms are on two levels and worked well for our party of 4 . The kitchen is well equipped , although we did not cook other than breakfast. Food shopping was nearby and we stocked up on basics like coffee and munchies.

Creating an everlasting memory of our stay was the Sicilian feast prepared by Rosella with support by Julia. Not only did we enjoy the most fabulous food but we engaged in great conversation and were able to learn more about our hosts. This is an additional cost, but well worth the experience. We were also able to travel to Cefalu, Palermo and Argegento on day trips . This was in addition to fully enjoying a very leasurly time at Villa Consiglio.

Have you ever wondered?

  • 5 of 5

Vi siete mai chiesti che cosa sarebbe come scoprire la famiglia da altra parte del mondo? E "INCREDIBILE"!!! Ci sono i pasti della famiglia, danzante e famiglia e autoscatti, e pasti in famiglia, e piccole principesse, ben si ottiene l'immagine un sacco di pasti in famiglia!!! Ancora più importante se sei nato in una famiglia siciliano come il mio veramente beati voi!

Questa casa e stata la scena più incredibile per un qualcosa di 50 donna per scoprire la famiglia mai incontrato prima. La casa era il più sereno eppure spettacolare luogo di esserla sarebbe difficile descrivere quanto confortevole siamo stati veramente per i 15 giorni che abbiamo occupato questa casa ancestrale. Foto alberi di ulivo vecchi di 300 anni e statue che risalgono 150 anni las nostra famiglia torneremo in questa casa ogni volte che visiteremo Sicilia, sopratutto a causa dell'amore e la cura della famiglia e il personale di questa incredibile tenuta!

Senti nessun ulteriore...questo rimane di proprietà!

PS ~ E non caricare la posizione del giro in auto ad esso vi farà sentire stupido, come ho fatto io!!!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to discover family half-way around the world?!...It's AWESOME!!! There are family meals...and dancing, and family meals, and selfies, and family meals, and little princesses...well, you get the picture...LOTS of family meals!!! More importantly, if you are born into a Sicilian family like mine...you are TRULY blessed! This home was the most amazing scene for a 50-something woman to discover the family she'd never met before. The home was the most serene, YET spectacular place to be. It would be hard to describe just how comfortable we really were for the 15 days we occupied this ancestral home. Picture 300 year old olive trees, and statues that date back 150 years. Our family will stay in this home each and every time we visit Sicily...most ESPECIALLY because of the love and care of the family and staff of this amazing estate! Look NO further, this property will amaze you! PS ~ don't judge the location by the car ride up to it, you will feel foolish, like I did!!!

Saluti...Terry & Dannette Lo Coco - Lee

Amazing hideout with a gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Villa Consiglio.

The view are amazing, overlooking the sea and the mountains, the house are beautiful with Classic Italian woodtables and the garden are perfekt with gorgeous palmtrees, cactuses and flowers between Roman statues.

We had our breakfast out on the huge terrasse and early nigits we had dinner with the great view overlooking the sea.

Late dinners we were sitting in the valv overlooking the uplightned pool.

We had the best welcome from Pietro and Rosella with supplies stucket in the kitchen and they also made us some antipasto for us to eat when we arriverat late. Perfekt!

We also had Pietro and Rosella to come over to cook great Sicilien food one night. Great antipasto with frutte de mare, 2 gorgeous pastadishes and ofcourse some local Dolce. It was amazing!

We spent lots of time in the garden by the pool, Reading books, looking at the kids having fun playing. Relaxing!

We recomend this place highly!

Thank you

Unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

Our experience staying at Villa Consiglio exceeded all expectations. Having breakfast in the fresh air in the morning -- or family dinner in the early evening -- at the big table on the balcony with a spectacular view over the tranquil Tyrrhenian Sea is an unforgettable experience, even for very seasoned travelers. The villa, surrounded by classical statues, is beautifully integrated into an olive grove with full, unimpeded, view over the sea. It had all amenities needed for our multi-generations family. The pool ensured that the grandchildren were happy all the time.

We cooked and shared dinners ourselves, except one evening when owners Pietro and Rosella prepared a most sumptuous, traditional Sicilian dinner for us, starting with a rich selection of antipasti, followed by the primi piatti (not only one, but two delicious pasta dishes). Then we had the secondi piatti - steaks and sausages. By then we already were full, but the temptation to eat more was irresistible. The dessert was a tray of cannoli and other local delicacies that rounded off an unforgettable dining experience. We even enjoyed leftovers for the next three days.

We were happy to spend much of the time just relaxing, at the villa and giving the grandchildren time to get wet in the pool. However, we also found time for daytrips to nearby Cefalu and the Norman castle at Caccamo.

We share vacation with our children and grandchildren at least one time a year. The overall ambiance of Villa Consiglio and Sicilian hospitality made this one of our absolutely best family experiences.

Beautiful villa for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Consiglio the second week of September. The villa is located close to the centre of Termini Imerese, where you can find supermarkets and a lot of nice restaurants. Cities like Palermo and Cefalu are within driving distance for a day trip.

At arrival the owners welcomed us with a plate of fresh fruit, and gave us a tour around the house and property. We stayed in the lower part of

the house, which consists of two good styled and clean bedrooms with AC,

a big dining room with small kitchen. What we missed; a small

living room, internet connection and music system, but this depends on

personal wishes and purpose of the staying. The villa is an excellent

place to give (dinner) parties, outside a large bbq and lots of tables

were available. From the large terrace you have a beautiful panoramic

view over the sea.

The swimming pool was a very nice facility, to take refreshing dive on a

hot day.

During our stay the friendly and hospitable owners did everything to

make our stay as comfortable as possible. It was a great holiday!

Lovely house with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Consiglio for more than a week with 5 friends. We had an amazing time at the villa, which is located approximately 5 mins drive from the old and new centre of Termini Imerese. From the villa it was easy to plan day trips to Palermo, Mondello and Cefalu, which is all within 45 minutes driving distance. The villa itself has huge property, the view is absolutely amazing and the garden is beautiful. We stayed in the lower part of the house; for bigger groups the hosts also rent out the top floor of the villa - the view from there is magnificent. The hosts were lovely, despite the language barrier they did everything within their power to make our stay as comfortable as possible. If I ever decide to go back to Sicily (there is so much to see there) I would surely stay at this villa again.
