Why Rosaria Riso chose Isola delle Femmine
Unlike tourists unfortunately not always the Sicilians not realize how lucky they live in Sicily, I like to share with my guests the enthusiasm that manifest after enjoying the sun, sea, our kitchen and often breathtaking sunsets . I also love this house because it allows me to enjoy the sea and the beach as often as I want.

Cozy and Near the Beach!
This is a very cute apartment for two, with a short walking distance to the beach. The apartment has a nice little terrace as well, which made meals al fresco quite lovely! Rosaria was very attentive and helpful at all times and was very easy to reach.
There are, however, some improvements to be made. The master bedroom mattress was terrible; it was more akin to a large cot and not comfortable at all. Another simple change would be to replace the bathroom shower drain-- not a costly "repair," but one that is necessary. The kitchen needs to be better equipped. For vacationers who plan on eating meals out every day (especially dinner), it's fine. However, we prefer cooking dinners and it was almost impossible. This is not a full-size kitchen. There are two tiny hotel-type refrigerators, so purchasing melons was impossible, nor could we keep our water refrigerated in order to save space for food products. There were, literally, five forks, four or five knives and a few spoons, and no space to prepare food.. The stove consisted of two electric burners that did not work properly when used together.
Although there was a second bedroom (with bunk-beds) for children, we could not imagine a family of four staying there comfortably with so little space.
We are in Sicily every year and so we've experienced many of its beautiful beaches. The beach at Isola is not one of the nicest. While the views are superb, as is true throughout western Sicily, the beach itself was not that clean, prompting us to keep away from Isola in the future. Also, if you have young children who are accustomed to sand-bottom water, beware; there are lots of rocks and holes on that sand so hold their hands tightly! There are some cute shops and tasty restaurants lungomare but the beach just isn't worth it.
Overall, my husband and I enjoyed our stay, but we have some reservations about giving it the full five stars given the issues discussed, above.
Nice villa with good loca...
Nice villa with good location - see beach in 100 meters. Polite, caring owners, living in the same area but very separately. The only problem - very small fridge.
Relax di gran classe
Siamo stati in questa villetta per soli 4 giorni, mio marito, mio figlio ed io.
La casa è molto bella, nuovissima e pulitissima, accogliente e comoda (che infissi, che pavimenti!!!). Se proprio si vuol trovare il pelo nell'uovo posso dire che manca la lavatrice ma per il resto il soggiorno è stato ottimale.
I proprietari Rosaria e Pippo sono persone a dir poco squisite, generose e disponibili. Consiglio vivamente il soggiorno in questa struttura
Paola da Roma
Anche voi siete stati ospiti graditi e più che simpatici spero tanto di incontrarvi nuovamente e potervi ospitare per un periodo più lungo, anche perché la lavatrice c'è, (é nella lavanderia giù).
BENESSERE E RELAX
Bellissima ed accogliente dimora, vicinissima alla spiaggia con una fantastica terrazza in cui pranzare in tutto relax assaporando la brezza marina, proprietaria cortese e disponibile, bellissima vacanza da ripetere al più presto!
