The villa was very nice with enough space for 6 people to enjoy and laze around the property. it is also conveniently located with great views of the sea from the upstairs balcony. The hosts are very nice people and were willing to help in all matters during our stay. It was a very enjoyable trip and it is highly recommended as well. Some points which I think will make the place even better are 1. the listing shows the house to be airconditioned but it is only in the bedrooms and therefore in the summer months the rest of the house gets quite warm 2. Some of the kitchen equipment needs replacement as they dont work quite well and 3. the villa has a ground floor which is separate and the occupants also share the same pool - that is not really mentioned in the listing.
Having sais that we really had a good time there and would recommend it highly.
Thank You so much for your review and we are very happy that your stay was great.
Im very sorry for the air conditional. Currenctly is in the bedrooms but we are going to put in the living room as well.
For the pool, in the homeaway is mentionated.
We hope to see you again
Great location and views. Helpful owners.
The website photos are a true reflection of how the villa is situated. Its location is spectacular with an uninterrupted view of the sea and the coastline for many miles to the east. The land rises steeply behind the villa which currently not overlooked by any another from the back. Inside, the villa is spacious with plenty of wardrobe space and unusually, no space taken by the owners things. It’s in good condition, tastefully decorated and has welcome air conditioning in all 3 bedrooms. Showers are excellent and very powerful.
A special mention must be made for Manola, who was welcoming and helpful throughout, especially allowing us to leave our luggage securely to accommodate an early arrival by ferry on the Saturday and similarly a late departure a week later. This allowed us the freedom to have a leisurely meal without worrying about leaving the car full of luggage. She also had great recommendations for sightseeing and places to eat.
That You so Much Again. It was a pleasure for us. Hope see you again
This house is a great spot to relax, eat and drink well, enjoy the views, and walk to the beach.
We really enjoyed staying at this villa. It is very large and comfortable (we stayed there with 5 adults and a baby with plenty of room to spare). Two of the three bedrooms have air conditioning, which is nice but the best parts of the house are the outdoor areas. The front veranda is WONDERFUL. There is lots of comfortable seating and the views are stunning.
Once there, we worked with Manola, the owner's sister. She is absolutely lovely and was very responsive to messages. We had an issue with the toilet and the front gate, and she responded within minutes and got everything fixed very quickly. We enjoyed meeting her and were grateful for her care.
The house is within walking distance of two beaches (a small private one, which is very close by, and a large public one, which is a bit further away). Both are easy to get to by foot and have chairs/umbrellas for rent (and they have food for sale). Additionally, you will enjoy simply spending time in the house taking in the views. However, I strongly recommend getting a car if you rent this villa. Beaches are really the only walkable place. You will need a car to get to the Super Market to pick up food, coffee, wine, and supplies (the market is a 5 minute drive away; and while it is walkable, it's a very hilly walk). Also, you will need a car to visit restaurants in the area or in the small town of Aspra (a 10 minute drive away) or in Bagheria (a 15 minute drive away). Also, there is a train station in Bagheria that you can park at if you wish to take day trips via train to Palermo, for example. Finally, there is a pharmacy and an ATM in Aspra should you need it.
We would rent this place again should we find ourselves back in the area. We loved it and you will too! One item to note that I was unaware of (I must have missed it) - the owner requires a 250 Euro deposit upon arrival. The deposit was returned when we checked out, but make sure you have Euros to give up front!
Thank You So much for your comment. I hope to see you Next year, you will find some positive news :-)
Wonderful Christmas in Sicily
Just returned from a ten day stay over Christmas in this lovely place. Our accommodation was wonderful - very comfortable, spotlessly clean and with good heating for the cooler nights. The owners had very thoughtfully placed Christmas lights and decorations all around creating a festive atmosphere. It also has a huge terrace looking directly to the sea and the views were stunning every day.
There were many things to see from there and the weather was sunny and bright every day with temperatures up to 17C so we walked a lot and visited nearby fishing villages, beaches, ancient sites and lovely cities and towns. Food was fantastic and we followed recommendations to excellent restaurants including one just down the road on arrival late at night and an outstanding meal at the Michelin star restaurant Ipuqi in Bagheria.
The family were very welcoming, helpful and kind to us and directions etc all very clear. We really had an excellent holiday.
Beautiful villa overlooking the sea
We (2 couples) spent a wonderful week in November at Villa Sofia. Though the weather was changing from warm to cold and the days were short, we still thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The walk to the lighthouse is spectacular, and one day was warm enough for a swim in the sea, which is a short walk from the house. The villa has lots of outdoor space, but the indoor space is comfortable on chilly days. The lovely fishing village of Porticello is a short drive away, as well as the remarkable ruins of Solunto. Palermo, Monreale, and Cefalu are relatively close. Vincenzo and his sister Manola were very helpful and responsive. All in all, we had a very enjoyable week!
Comfortable villa with great amenities
It was much bigger than it looked in the photos and was very comfortable. We loved the outdoor areas, particularly the outdoor kitchen and BBQ. The shops were easy to get to and the local walks were stunning!
