This house is a great spot to relax, eat and drink well, enjoy the views, and walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful Christmas in Sicily

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at night. We got lost not following our directions. We called Vincenzo and he met us at an exit in Bagheria. We followed him to the villa. When we removed our luggage from the car he helped carry our luggage inside. The villa is gorgeous. Interior and exterior. The huge patio overlooks the Mediterranean with the majestic Sicialian Mountains on each side. The interior was beautiful with modern bathrooms and tastefully furnished bedrooms.

There is beach access. Jus ask Vincenzo.

Also in Bagheria there is a great bar, pastry shop and gelatoria called IL Bascio Bar. Very popular.

A car is a necessity.

We highly recommend this villa.

A Home in Sicily

  • 4 of 5

Myself and friends from Rome and Como spent a most enjoyable nine days at Villa Sofia. The owner is most gracious and accommodating. The house itself is very well appointed, especially the outdoor areas. In fact, other than sleeping, we spent the entire time outdoors enjoying the views and the convenience of the outdoor kitchen. The location is very good for those who want to see the area. Palermo is about 20 minutes away by car as is Monreale. Cefalu' is forty minutes east and the beautiful mountain town of Buoncastello is nearby as well. All in all, a great vacation at a lovely place with wonderful friends.
