We will make sure the refrigerator is stocked with Water, Milk, Eggs, Fruit juice, wine and Beer. Also coffee, sugar, bread.....and some Sicilian treats so that you can relax and recover from your travels. The villa also has its own Extra Virgin Olive Oil, we hope you enjoy it!

If you would like to join us for olive picking (between mid October and mid November) and visit the olive mill to see how the oil is produced, you will be more than welcome. The days of olive picking go something like this...Pick a few trees..a glass of wine...pick a few more trees...Enjoy a picnic under the trees and maybe another glass of wine! The afternoon is much like the morning although a little slower. Make sure you leave enough room in your luggage so that you can take some oil home.

Thinking of a winter break?

Wonderful home in wonderful part of Sicily

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying in Caccamo. Our plane was delayed and we arrived late, so it was fantastic to arrive to find a feast of lovely cheese, meats, bread and wine. We also appreciated the tour of Caccamo the next morning and to be shown the best butcher and bread shop and restaurants.

Caccamo is a small town; very Italian and very friendly. Palermo was great; we took the train from Termini as recommended by Anne and Doug which worked well. Dolce and Gabbana were staging their autumn show which added to the day. Another day we went to Segesta to see the temple and amphitheatre as we were taking one of our sons to the airport. Relaxing at the house was easy as it is very well equipped and really comfortable. The pool is lovely and you can choose sun or shade.We had not visited Sicily before and will definitely go again. Anne and Doug's lovely home is definitely a wonderful place to stay .

What a wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful holiday we had. Doug and Anne gave us a warm welcome when we arrived and filled the fridge with delicious meats, wines and fruits. The house perched on a hillside has beautiful views and was spotlessly clean. Doug kept the pool clean and topped up during our stay. Caccamo has plenty of tasty places to eat and is a pleasure to wander round. We didn't get into the castle but enjoyed looking at it from the restaurant below.

we visited Palermo ( the catacombs are well worth a visit) and Cefalu ( beautiful beach but gets busy).

Couldn't recommend this place enough for a holiday. We hope to go back one day.

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We have relied on VRBO to find vacation homes consistently for 12 years. Sometimes the experience has been hit and miss but we have continued to use the site. We are so glad we did! Anne and Doug's lovely villa exceeded our expectations and made leaving to return to New York almost painful. The home reflects the warmth of their personalities, their relationship and their passion for this extraordinary island. They welcomed us like old friends but gave us space and privacy. We will never forget their generosity and kindness and the only way we could tear ourselves away this morning was by reassuring ourselves that we WILL be back.

Thank you

Michael and Mark

The most comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very relaxing, get away from it all week here in early June. The villa is one of the best we have ever rented. It was extremely comfortable and everything you could possibly need was supplied.

The outdoor seating was especially well thought out. A lovely sofa on the veranda, a table in the sun and the most wonderful table under a trellis of passion flowers. My favourite place for reading in the midday sun.

The views are magnificent, in one direction the vast panorama of the sea and in the other the mountains ...with the full moon rising , spectacular.

Ann and Doug were amazing hosts. From the very welcome drinks and food left for our arrival, to the help Doug gave us when we incurred a parking ticket.

We highly recommend a stay here for a thoroughly relaxing holiday.

Lovely villa. Great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week in May. As so many before us have already said, this is a great villa with fabulous views. Anne and Doug filled our fridge with enough lovely food and Prosecco which as we were very tired saved us going out on our first night here (after our 3.30am start from the UK! ) They were marvellous hosts, showing us around Caccamo and then enjoying a drink in the town with us. They are great fun.

The villa was beautifully furnished and we appreciated the fresh flowers from the garden. The pool was also lovely and we found it hard to drag ourselves away to explore the island!

A car is an essential here.

Thank you Anne and Doug and we will remember you fondly.

wonderful property, extraordinarily helpful hosts...

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five adults stayed at this property, from 7-14 May 2017, during the 2nd week of our Sicily vacation. We chose this property as a base to tour the western half of the island. Before selecting this particular property, I reviewed many of the VRBO properties in the area and selected this one on the basis of the reviews and, of course the photo images.

We were not disappointed and recommend this property ,most highly. It is as absolutely as described. It is, however, suitable for travellers who have a rental vehicle. As it is located about 5-6 km. from Caccamo.

Anne and Doug were extremely helpful and available at all times. We even lost track of the dates during our first week in Sicily (I would have thought that was the purpose of a vacation) and showed up a day early. Anne and Doug, took it in their stride and within 20 minutes had made arrangements for us to stay in a nearby, vacant villa for the night!

Ann and Doug also took us on a short tour of Caccamo and pointed out the best supermarket, butcher and bakery in Caccamo, which made our provisioning throughout our stay a simple matter.

The villa is also an easy drive from the train station from Termini Immerese for convenient rail commutes into places such as Palermo or Cefalu. As for Palermo, Anne put us in touch with a Marco, a guide who provided us with a most enjoyable tour of the old city and markets of Palermo. Highly recommended as well.

Whether your simply looking for an ideal location and villa to settle in and relax or a base for touring the western half of Sicily, this property should be on your short list...

Thank you Doug and Anne for your welcome and for all that you did for us during our wonderful stay at your property!
