We are a family of 4 (2 teenage girls), and we had a wonderful week staying at this lovely orchard in August. Giuseppe is a most generous and welcoming host, and he supplied us with gorgeous grapes & figs fresh from the orchard, as well as his own delicious home made wine and olive oil, both of which we polished off within days!
The 2 bed house is small but comfortable, but the pool & gazebo is where we spent most of our lazy days. The excellent outdoor space is surrounded by citrus & olive trees, and the big deep pool that was perfect for cooling off.
We self-catered mostly, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook up a Sicilian storm, with groceries bought either at the daily fresh fruit market in nearby charming Collesano, or a simple 20 minute drive to Campofellice di Rocella where the supermarkets had everything we could want.
Local village of Scillato had an exquisite and very inexpensive pizza restaurant that we used several times, as did Collesano.
A day trip to the marvellous Cefalu was an easy 30 minute drive, and the beach was a lovely change, albeit very very popular in August!
A fabulous stay in every way.
We had a very relaxing time. The house is lovely, the pool is gorgeous and the local area is fascinating and beautiful. You can still travel to beaches and historical sites in Sicily from the house - but most days you'll find it hard to leave!
The local town is a working town and full of lovely local shops and is very warm and inviting. We can really recommend this villa.
