Also every Friday morning Termini Imerese has a large, busy, colourful market next to the port The old town of Cefalu, with its beautiful beaches is 20 minutes away. There are many beaches and coves to explore along this coastline. Palermo is a wonderful city by day, with its colourful markets, shops and historical buildings.

Palermo has been awarded the Capital of Culture for Europe 2018. It is going to be amazing, so book early for 2018.

Anne & Doug will welcome you on your arrival. We will come and meet you and guide you to the villa, if needed.

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?

February is Carnival Time here in Sicily. A visit to Acriale 2017 25th Feb, A truly wonderful Sicilian Carnival, approx 1hr 50 min drive. Also many small towns boast their Carnival! Teatro Massimo Palermo 35min drive, always has amazing events going on. Palermo also offers many Jazz, Blues, and Pop events.

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!

Perfect base in a charming hill town for our Sicily adventure

  • 5 of 5

This place is a lovely perch on a hill with the most amazing view. The house is generously provisioned and very comfortable, with modern well maintained amenities. The kitchen is well equipped, and the outdoor living space is pretty hard to beat. Hosts Anne and Doug are the best - very helpful, and an awesome source of tips for things to do. We miss them already.

Caccamo is a charming village with an amazing castle, and several very good restaurants. This is a quiet, peaceful place, but convenient to Palermo and Cefalu, and other beautiful Sicilian attractions. We hope to be back some day. Ciao!

Outstanding hosts, nice villa

  • 5 of 5

We have spent 6 nights at the villa during Christmas vacation. We have arrived late in the evening and have discovered that the refrigerator was full of delicious food, beer and several bottles of wine. Anne and Doug even brought Panettone cake for us! Before our arrival we had exchanged multiple emails with Anne: she recommended places to visit, restaurants to go, events to attend. The villa is located between Cefalu and Palermo, so we were able to visit these cites and all the surrounding towns, including Monreale, Erice and Caccamo. The descriptions of the villa is very accurate. We didn't have a chance to use the pool because of winter, but the view from the house is outstanding. I would say that the only drawback of this place is that you have to use the car to get anywhere. The surrounding roads were not built for pedestrians.

The weather was perfect for this time of year: 15C and no rain for the whole week. Also, there were not a lot of tourists and we were able to enjoy all the museums and restaurants. To our surprise, we were able to find nice places to eat on December 24th and 25th.

Thank you, Anne and Doug! Happy New Year!

Tanya & Ilya

  • 5 of 5

This villa is truly outstanding for it's views and standard of comfort as are Ann and Doug who were perfect hosts in providing everything that was needed and more.It was so nice upon our arrival to find the fridge full of everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay,and found it as a good location for visiting Palermo, and the old town of Ceflau which we particularly liked with its lovely beach.

Outstanding villa, outstanding hosts

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this beautiful villa and the hosts Anne and Doug highly enough. Everything about our stay was perfect.

Anne and I exchanged many e-mails prior to our stay and they were always answered quickly and her passion for Sicily shone through.

The fridge on our arrival was full of delicious local produce, wines, beers and proseco. This was really appreciated after our long journey and a lovely welcome. Anne went to the trouble of buying lots of gluten free products including fresh bread and pasta as I have coeliac disease.

The villa was immaculately clean and had everything we could possibly want and need.

On the first morning I was lucky enough to see a beautiful sunrise, the spectacular view really took my breath away.

Anne and Doug took us around Caccamo, showing us the butchers, supermarkets and local restaurants on the first morning, this was very helpful to us.

Out two teenage sons spent time at Lake Rosamarina jet ski-ing, kayaking and speed boating, they loved it!

We also visited Cefalu and walked up La Rocca, where there are amazing views from the top, thoroughly recommended.

Our visit to the Madonie mountain range was fabulous, with stunning scenery everywhere you look.

We also had magical times in Mondello, Scopello, Zingaro nature reserve, Caccamo castle and Monreale.

Please do not hesitate to book this gorgeous villa, you will not regret it.

Thank you Anne and Doug for a truly wonderful holiday in Sicily, you made it so special for us all.

Debbie, Mike, Jamie and Harry.

Perfect hideaway in the Mountain

  • 5 of 5

We are having the greatest time here in Anne and Dougs beautiful villa up in the mountain. It has the most amazing view over the sea and we can see the city far belowe and the mountainview is great! I think this must be the best view ever!

The villa is beautiful with everything you need for an relaxing holiday.

The porcelain, furniture and the gardenflower is beautiful so you can have gorgeous settings at all time.

And the pool is beautiful also with the best view and nice sunbeds. The kids loved the streaming water in the pool!

We had the best welcome with lots of local fresh cut deli and wine! Even some chilled prosecco to enjoy on arrival!

Perfekt!

Anne & Doug is the most warm & welcoming people, so sweet and available for questions we may have at all time.

We like it so much here that we've spent more time here instead of exploring the Island! We Will defenitly be back here to enjoy!

Thank you Anne & Doug for letting us in!
