We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay in Villa Palma. The location of the villa is perfect, with the beach, shops and restaurants all within a short walking distance. The layout of the villa is ideal for a family (or an extended one in our case) and has the added advantage of outdoor showers around the pool etc, so there's no need to queue indoors. Salvatore is the owner and makes great efforts to ensure you are informed of everything before arriving, makes sure you're properly housed and is always ready to answer your questions. A very good host and one that many could learn from. Towels and bedding are provided (as well as a welcome 'kit') but if I could suggest one improvement it would be to have some beach towels as well. We bought some from a local shop because we mistakenly thought they were provided but it is the only 'feedback' we have and the supermarkets nearby do have them to hand if anyone else forgets. Marina Di Ragusa has some great beaches for adults and kids alike and is clearly popular with the Sicilians, as it seemed to be a holiday destination for 'locals', instead of being crowded with Chinese (a very positive thing). There's plenty of exploring to be done around the south coast of Sicily but be prepared for some pretty lengthy drives and the 'joys' of Italian driving :-) Overall we really enjoyed our time staying in Villa Palma and would recommend it to others.
