Very well equiped villa with excellent views

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and tidy, both indoor and outdoor living spaces

Exceptional views from every angle with scenery to die for

Very well equiped and everything worked perfectly.

The only slight issue relates to the pool, which could be bigger and requires more frequent cleaning tyhan we experienced during our stay

Shame about the pool

  • 3 of 5

Unfortunately the pool pump was not working and could not be fixed. This was a major disappointment and we were grateful for a reduction in the overall charge to compensate - up to a point. We also felt that at least one of the bedrooms downstairs was unsatisfactory with a noisy water pump in a cupboard off the room, and there was not sufficient clothes storage. This kitchen and barbecue were well-stocked.

Casa Bella !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Elena was fantastic ! The house itself is beautiful with an amazing pool and a beautiful area to relax on lounges and enjoy the outdoors. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the location to shopping and dining is very convenient. The outdoor patio area is very large and the view of the mountains and water is spectacular. Thank you Ann for a wonderful and memorable vacation.

a Great place to stay in Sicily

  • 5 of 5

Villa Elena is a perfect place to relax at home or to go see the sights of Sicily. We loved spending time on the terrace looking at the beautiful view of the mountains and the sea. Sunning by the pool or cooking in the outdoor kitchen was a delight. Easy access to the Autostrada made it easy to get to all the tourist spots in Sicily. The local town of Caccamo was convenient, beautiful, and friendly. There you can find any supplies you may need, plus great restaurants, and a spectacular castle. Villa Elena is clean, comfortable, and has everything needed for a great holiday. The first time I stayed here, the place was managed by the previous owner. Since then, the new owner has made many improvements to the property both inside and out. This was the perfect place for me and my family to vacation. I will go back and recommend it to anyone who wants to vacation and have a true Sicilian experience.
