Secluded Gem, Stunning Pool

  • 4 of 5

We spent a marvellous week in Sicily staying in Marina’s apartment. Marina is charming and made us feel very welcome. The apartment is spacious, especially the sitting/dining room. We were pleasantly surprised there are two bathrooms (one with bath, the other a shower and both with WCs). The twin bedroom is spacious, as is the double bedroom (which also has a single bed in it). The third bedroom is accessed by walking through the double bedroom and is a small, twin room. Bed linen and bath towels were provided and the apartment was clean and tidy. The garden is wonderful and secluded (although there are mosquitos) and the enormous pool is fantastic. It is not heated, so was a little too chilly in mid-October for us to swim in. However we had lovely lunches out by the pool in the sunshine and several enthusiastic table-football matches too. There is also a large and efficient gas BBQ which meant cooking ‘al fresco’ was very easy. The property is only minutes by car from a Pizzzeria and the village of Paolini where there is a bar/café, a bread shop, hardware store and mini-supermarket (we had some delicious chicken and pork kebabs with fennel seed from the butcher in the supermarket). A car is essential, but the apartment is very well positioned (15 mins in either direction to Trapani airport and to Marsala) and there is SO much to see and do in the surrounding area. Highlights for us and our two children (aged 7 & 8) were: Selinunte (with lunch by the sea in Marinella); the Church in Monreale; the Oratorio di Santa Cita in Palermo; Segesta and Erice. We also did a lovely Marsala tasting in the Enoteca Garibaldi and visited the Planeta winery in Sambuca di Sicilia. All in all we had a lovely holiday and hope to come back again.

  • 5 of 5

"We had an excellent time in this villa. Very nice and big garden, sun and shadow. Great (big) swimmingpool, several places outside to sit and eat. Big plus for us was the very short distance to the airport (Trapani) and to Marsala, Trapani, the Islands (e.g. Favignana) and Erice. The place gives privacy and shops nearby (walking-distance). We rented a car down the street, also very easy. Internet was very good. The lady of the house very friendly and helpful. We were with two families and each had there own bathroom, very nice. We were there in oct and the weather was still very nice, still sunbathing by the pool. Don''t forget to bring repellent for the musquitos."

  • 5 of 5

We where a big bunch of adults and children aging from 1,5 to 14 staying here. We had a wonderful 2 week stay in Marinas lovely aparment. The garden with its pool, flowers and threes is a true beauty. Marina was very helpful in all ways, always willing to help us. There were also many good things if you travel with a small child like babycot and a slide.

The surroundings/roads are maybe not so good if you like to walk around or go without a car. But the nearby village Paolini offered anything you needed with grocery stores, butchers and fruit/vegatable vans etc. Also very friendly people. A genuine Sicilian area with not many tourists.

We might return some day to explore more of West Sicily or just to hang out by the pool at this nice place.

  • 5 of 5

"Marina was the perfect host, she made every effort to ensure that we had a great holiday. She met us at the airport and escorted us to the house. The pool and it's surroundings are superb, it is clean and well maintained. The house is spacious and well furnished. We found the second bedroom was not ideal as our two sons had to pass through our bedroom to reach it. It is essential to have a car when staying at this property. I would also advise bringing mosquito repellent."

  • 5 of 5

"Having stayed in Villas throughout the world.

This one is one of the best we have experienced.

The attention to detail, the rustic charm, the incredible garden and pool makes this the ideal setting for a relaxing holiday.

Above all our host Marina will always have a special place in our hearts. She saw to our every need and what she did for us will never be forgotten.

We can not wait to go back!"

  • 5 of 5

"We were very warmly welcomed by Marina who kindly met us at the airport. The property is very spacious and clean with a lovely pool and large garden with trees and colourful flowers. The children very much enjoyed the table football which arrived during the course of our stay. Within easy access of Marsala and good restaurants recommended by Marina. A car is recommended as to walk anywhere you have to go from the house along a fairly busy road and there is not much to do in the immediate vicinity. Although near the road, it is not noisy in the property or in the garden. The local Bar Tahiti was very useful for pizzas and cappucinos and the staff very friendly. We had a very good holiday."
