More than surpassed our expectations!!
Casa Dei Granci is beyond beautiful. Panoramic vistas from all areas of the property are stunning. It is brimming with character and while clean and tidy, it feels warm and lived in and contains everything you could need while on holiday. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for large dinners, and there are multiple areas to eat depending on the weather. The garden is plentiful with fresh herbs and fruit. We spent days playing table tennis, football and relaxing by the massive swimming pool, which has a breathtaking backdrop of rolling Sicilian hills!
The closest shop is about 10 minutes away by car in Polizzi Generosa - a beautiful little town that is home to the most friendly and kind people! We browsed the local market and ate delicious pizza. Sandra and Piero were welcoming and helpful during every part of our trip, and always responded quickly to any questions we had. We made some extremely fond and ever-lasting memories at Casa Dei Granci and will definitely be returning!
We loved this generous stylish house with its stunning views and pool. It’s a very special place.
We arrived at the villa to find our friendly and helpful hosts Sandra and Pietro waiting, with a basket full of delicious local food and wine.
The house is a wonderful large, sturdy and stylish family home, with big tables to sit around and an excellently equipped cook’s kitchen. It’s a place to whip up feasts for slow lunches and five course dinners. The bedrooms and bathroons are also stylish and very comfortable and the views from the house are stunning, The courtyard and lush gardens provide lots of spots for dining and dreaming and the orchards are fun to explore -we gathered apricots, plums and oranges. The pool is perfect, again with great mountain views. If you’re looking for a rural property and a central spot to explore the interior and the coast I couldn’t recommend this more highly; what a perfect place for family and friends.
Among the most amiable guests of all time, attentive, tasteful and deliciously ironic. We appreciated their punctuality and their preferences that we found to be very similar to ours. Ideal guests, which we would like to host at least once a year. See you soon.

Glorious House and position
This is a very unique property sitting on a ridge with simply glorious uninterrupted views of the beautiful Madonie national park. the house is very well cared for and beautifully equipped. it is the family house of the owners, and it has a beautiful feel to it. The large swimming pool is is sunlight all day and a joy to swim in. There are many fruit trees on the property and every day we had freshly squeezed orange juice from oranges we picked seconds before. The people in the nearest small town Polizzi Generosa are exactly that- generous and very kind and friendly. This was one of the best, most peaceful holidays we have ever had.The owners even drove from Palermo to change up our internet to give us more gigs per day! Perfection. great local food, wonderful hiking. Peace. We shall most definitely return.
Wonderful house for the whole family!!!
We couldn't have been luckier with another house for our first trip to Sicily. Upon arrival, we had a grand welcome by Sandra and Piero, the owners, themselves. They are very proud of their house, with good reason and wanted to show us around themselves. The house and the grounds are BEAUTIFUL!! They also set out a few baskets in the kitchen with local treats: cheese, prosecco, salami, honey, olive oil, lemons and tomato sauce (the last 3 from their own grounds). The house is very clean, charmingly decorated and includes everything that you could need for the vacation. We were with grandparents and 4 children (ages 12-5) and there was something for everyone, from reading in the shade on the comfortable lounge chairs to playing voetbal or table tennis, to swimming in the pool to walking around the grounds and neighborhood taking in the gorgeous scenery. The views from the house are open and breathtaking! The house has no obstuctions around so you can see the beautiful nature all around you. Polizzi Generosa, the closest town, can be seen from the yard and the view is both by night and day is an enjoyable sight. We went to Polizzi Generosa daily for bread/groceries, but also a few times for dinner. The tiny town has everything you need. About a 20 minute ride away are the beaches of Cefalu. Within 15 minutes in the opposite direction are beautiful trails for hiking. In short, a week here was not long enough. When we return to Sicily, we will definitely stay again in Sandra and Piero's house. We loved the house and our vacation in Sicily!
Dieses Haus ist ein Traum. Es ist hervorragend ausgestattet, mit viel Liebe neu renoviert und in altem Landhausstil eingerichtet.
Wer absolute Ruhe sucht, wird sie hier finden. Der pool wurde von unseren Töchtern ausgiebig genutzt.
Wir haben relativ wenig vom Norden der Insel gesehen, bis auf zwei Wanderungen in der wunderschönen Madonie, da es einfach zu schade war, dieses Haus zu verlassen.
Sandra ist eine sehr aufmerksame, freundliche und unkomplizierte Vermieterin, die uns mit einigen lokalen Produkten verwöhnt hat.
Dieses Haus ist sehr zu empfehlen.!!!!
Great stay in this beautiful house
We had a lovely stay in this very beautiful house.
The house has a lot of space and the garden is very well equipped for children. The house itself is in a very good state and the owners are very helpful.
The location is very good for hiking in the Madonia.
The view from the terrace is very beautiful.
Our only problem was the weather : April 2013 was rainy, but the owners were very kind regarding the heating. So, a very good stay, we sure will have to come back.
