A wonderful week at an extraordinary location

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of 4 with two teenagers) spent a wonderful week in this beautiful house in an extraordinary location. A car is a must as the house can be reached on a quiet private road (dead end). It is surrounded by a large garden with many trees (citrus, olives, pears,...) and the sea view from the large shaded terrace is really wonderful. Even though we were there in July, the temperatures in the house were never extreme due to it’s location close to the sea. Only a short walk from the house (although the last part downhill is quite steep) there is a quiet sandy beach. There are no facilities on the beach, so make sure to bring your own umbrellas, but it is idyllic and there are hardly any people! The water is quite shallow and thus also ideal for smaller kids. On two days the water was rather chilly, but the remaining week the water temperature was wonderful. One can walk on the beach either to the next town Porto Palo or to larger beaches in the direction of Selinunte.

The house is very well equipped, with a kitchen and a large dining table in the living room, and another table on the terrace.

Evelina was a wonderful host, and gave us lots of hints on local attractions and responded quickly whenever we had a question. She cared perfectly for us during our stay!

Maison de la nature, du calme et de la sérénité

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé (2 personnes) deux semaines merveilleuses dans cette belle demeure,dans laquelle rien ne manquait. Une voiture est nécessaire!

C'était des vacances dans le calme,la route est privée et il n'y a pas beaucoup de maisons aux alentours. De la terrasse de la maison, on peut admirer un grand jardin pourvu de toutes sortes de plantes comme oliviers, agrumes et autres plantes méditerranéennes, le tout couronné avec vue sur mer et les chants des oiseaux.

La plage, à environ 200m, est composée essentiellement de sable et de quelques rochers,elle est très plaisante,puisque la profondeur de la mer n'augmente que très doucement.

Aux alentours,à Porto Palo, il y a 2 petites superettes où vous trouvez le nécessaire,et en plus ,il y a de bons restaurants.

Endroit idéal aussi pour partir à visiter tout l'ouest de la Sicile comme Agrigento,Selinunte,Segesta,Trapani,Erice,pour les villes principales,ect.,toutes des merveilles.

Grand merci à Evelina, une dame d'une grande gentillesse, toujours disponible et prête à nous donner des informations sur divers sujets.

Un endroit merveilleux et à respecter, un endroit à y revenir.

Schmetterlingshaus - House of butterflies

  • 5 of 5

The house of butterflies is a beautiful place. Especially the kitchen has everything you need. I was there with my whole family and was looking for a place where kids can play around… If you have had a busy summer, this might be the best place to come to. At Portopalo you are leaving a stressful society behind to listen to the sound of nature instead. Also you can eat there lots of local fruits. The sea is really refreshing and clean. It’s a place where you can cool down. It was really easy to contact the host for specific questions. Thank you Evelina for that amazing week, I’m really looking forward to come here again.

Das Schmetterlingshaus ist ein außergewöhnlicher Ort. Vor allem die Küche hat alles was man sich wünscht. Ich war dort mit meiner Familie weil ich nach einen Plätzchen suchte wo meine Kinder spielen konnten… Wenn ihr Sommer stressig war und sie nach einem Ort suchen wo sie die Natur hören können dann kommen sie her, es lohnt sich! Man kann hier ganz viele Früchte probieren. Das Meer ist angenehm kühl und glasklar. Ein Ort an dem man sich entspannen kann. Es war wirklich einfach den Gastgeber zu kontaktieren. Danke Evelina für die wunderbare Woche. Ich freue mich schon auf das nächste mal.

Un incanto della natura

  • 5 of 5

Ho soggiornato con la mia famiglia in questa bella, comoda e, di tutto e per tutto, attrezzata villetta, situata in un vero e proprio paradiso naturalistico che è la Riserva del Belice. Spiaggette e scogli, declinati in calette, su cui una macchia mediterranea, antica e verde, fatta di palme nane, arbusti, ginepro, pini mediterranei, si affaccia sul mare e copre i declivi. Il posto è di commovente bellezza. Poco frequentato (che fortuna grandissima...), silenzioso, privo di strutture balneari, selvaggio e puro. Mi auguro che il meno possibile sia violato nella sua integrità dagli uomini e sia, invece, rispettato ed amato. Splendida la padrona di casa, Evelina, gentilissima Signora di altri tempi, premuorosa ed efficientissima. Una meraviglia tutto

C'é a chi piace girare il mondo,ma io dico sempre, "prima assaporiamo la conoscenza del nostro paese che ha meraviglie e risorse inestimabili"

Una di queste É sicuramente la Sicilia e nella fattispecie la zona di Menfi e porto Palo,dove si può trovare un oasi naturale e incontaminata,immersa nella natura, Villa Mariposa di Evelina Cuffaro,proprietaria di una perla di rara bellezza.

Una villa accogliente come la padrona di casa,persona squisita è sempre disponibile.

Di nuova costruzione, ampia e ben rifinita,con un patio coperto che É una meraviglia. Adatta alle famiglie e per chi ama la pace e la tranquillità.Si raggiunge a pieni una delle spiagge più belle, ed anche in agosto ci sono poche persone in quanto l accesso É privato.

Indimenticabili sono le sere passate a guardare le stelle e la via lattea,visto che É privo L inquinamento luminoso.

Sicuramente la consigliamo a tutti e noi abbiamo deciso di tornarci presto,perché é impossibile non innamorarsi di un posto del genere.

Grazie alla signora Evelina che ci ha accolto con il suo calore e ci ha fatto sentire come fossimo a casa nostra.

Natura incontaminata e silenzio

  • 5 of 5

Ho soggiornato con la mia famiglia (2 adulti e 2 bimbi) a Villa Mariposa tra la fine di luglio e l'inizio di agosto. La casa e' molto comoda (ha ben 3 camere da letto e 2 bagni) ed e' dotata di tutto il necessario, ha una ampia veranda con sdraio e amaca per i momenti di relax e un grande tavolo dove si puo' mangiare all'aperto. La cosa che ci ha stupiti e' che non abbiamo per niente sofferto il caldo nonostante il periodo poiche' la casa e' sempre ben ventilata essendo posta su un promontorio vicino al mare. Un' altra piacevole scoperta e' stata la spiaggia che si raggiunge in 10 minuti circa percorrendo un breve tratto della strada sterrata e poi un sentiero un po' scosceso che scende fino al mare. Non potevamo credere che una spiaggia cosi' bella fosse praticamente deserta in questo periodo dell'anno, solo durante i week-end arrivano un po' piu' di persone ma non si puo' proprio parlare di affolamento. La spiaggia e' libera e senza servizi ma la consiglio vivamente a tutti coloro che amano la tranquillita' e il mare limpido, e' adatta ai bambini poiche' e' sabbiosa e l'acqua e' poco profonda fino a delle rocce dove anche i piu' piccoli possono divertirsi a guardare i pesciolini con la maschera. Anche la casa e' molto silenziosa e tranquilla poiche' le case vicine sono abbastanza distanti e sulla strada sterrata passano pochissime auto. Consiglio a tutti coloro che amano la natura e il silenzio questo angolo ancora incontaminato delle coste siciliane, non verrete delusi !!

Infine ne approfitto per ringraziamento la gentilissima signora Evelina per l'ottima accoglienza e la sua disponibilita a qualsiasi nostra richiesta.
