Ruhe und Erholung in wunderschöner Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Die Anfahrt zum Haus ist ein kleines Abenteuer - aber es loht sich: Hinter dem hohen Gartentor öffnet sich eine liebevoll gestaltete Idylle mit vielen schönen Sitzecken, einem grandiosen Pool mit Ausblick, einem charmanten großen Haus, das perfekt ausgestattet ist und einem Nebenhaus, das ebenfalls geschmackvoll und funktional zugleich eingerichtet ist. Innen sind beide Häuser ein klein wenig "überdekoriert" - ein paar Trockenblumen, sizilianische Vasen und Aufkleber weniger wären meiner Meinung nach wohltuend;). Viel wichtiger aber ist das wirklich grandiose Gelände mit Außenküche, Granatapfelbäumen und Hängematte. Ein sehr nettes Verwalter-Ehepaar schaut regelmäßig nach dem Rechten, füttert die sehr lieben tierischen Mitbewohner (ein Hund und drei Katzen), reinigt den Pool und hilft in allen Lebenslagen.

  • 5 of 5

"Quel bel endroit .. Les 2 maisons cote à cote garantissent un confort maximum si vous partez à plusieurs familles. La piscine, la vue dégagée sur la campagne, les belles terrasses autours de la maison .. rien de manque. En plus, sur place, un charmant couple très attentionné vient s''occuper de l''entretien de la piscine chaque jour, et vous exerce à la langue Italienne ... Encore merci à eux pour leur accueil si sympathique. Avec notre meilleur souvenir. Les enfants sont nostalgiques des petits chatons..."

"Un posto incantevole in ...

  • 5 of 5

"Un posto incantevole in mezzo alla campagna siciliana, dove con gli amici del cuore e un buon bicchiere di vino abbiamo trascorso serate incantevoli guardando i tramonti sull’isola di Favignana, facendo nuotate in piscina, grigliate di carne e pesce e aperitivi al tramonto sotto pergolati di Bouganville.

La casa è isolata silenziosa e fresca ideale per più famiglie anche con molti bambini, serve l’auto ma è centrale rispetto a tutta la zona occidentale della Sicilia, vi sono posti bellissimi, spiagge meravigliose e calette incantevoli con mare limpido e azzurro in cui è frequente vedere i delfini .

L’ospitalità dei padroni di casa e soprattutto di Vito e Donatella hanno reso il tutto ancora più entusiasmante.

Una vacanza in Sicilia che ci rimarrà sempre nel cuore.

  • 5 of 5

"Cominciando da una posizione geografica esaltante, passando poi alla squisitezza del padrone di casa, alla cucina deliziosa della zona, alle bellezze naturali e artistiche, posso affermare che è stata una vacanza bellissima. La casa è molto grande e confortevole, fresca anche ad agosto."

  • 5 of 5

"La casa è molto confortevole. Durante il giorno e la notte non si sente nulla, è il posto migliore per passare una vacanza in relax. Il contesto geografico è stupendo, con una vista sulla vera campagna siciliana. Non è vicino al mare, ma è al centro di una vasta zona di interesse storico e con molte località di mare.

Il signor C. è stato gentilissimo e, nonostante la casa non sia semplice da trovare, è venuto a prenderci appena fuori l'autostrada. Si consiglia l'uso di un navigatore."
