“It was good to be back”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was our second visit, and our desire to return was not misplaced. It's a lovely, spacious house, with room to relax indoors and out, and everything works, including the excellent wi-fi.

Casteldaccia is a really friendly little town which we got to know even better this time. We love the place, and plan to return for a third visit. Highly recommended.

“Wow”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Villa della Palma, is a wonderful gem to discover in the middle of a bustling town. It is a spacious family home brimming with Sicilian character. The villa is decorated with stunning tiled floors and authentic furniture. The garden is a wonderful highlight. The orchard was laden with fruit and the scent of jasmine filled the air. Each morning we breakfasted on croissants and coffee on the verandah and discussed the plans for the day. We slept very well in the comfortable beds. I would advise,if you can, to sleep in a bedroom away from the road, as the traffic picks quite early in the morning and it is noisy in the front bedroom. There is a well stocked supermarket nearby and a bakery across the road. It is a great spot to base yourself for exploring Sicily, it's not far from the autostrade or the coastal road.

“A marvellous unvergettable sunshining holiday at a special location”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed as 4 adults at the upper terrace for 8 days and really enjoyed the various space. Maria and Antonio were very kind and most helpful, even transport to the railwaystation in an oldmobile was provided!
The tropic garden below and the sea breeze and mountainview across the valley from above offered us unforgettable memories. The calmness, the hospitality and respectful way ours hosts treated us.... really great!

“Lovely place to stay in Northern Sicily”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Lovely villa in lovely garden -- easy access to trains to Palermo and Cefalu as well as highway for driving trips. Extremely generous and helpful and friendly hosts. House is very charming, garden is gorgeous. We ate figs off the trees. Very comfortable rooms, slept very well. Nice, not-at-all touristy town to stay in.

“Holiday Rental ticked all the boxes”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We liked the village feel close to the property and the tropical garden .Maria and Ricardo were helpful hosts .I Loved the village of Castledccia and the friendly people who welcomed us into their world for our stay including dancing Italian /Latin Rythms almost nightly in the Piazza inc sampling various coffee houses etc all friendly and interested in your experience of their town.
The beach/cove at Santa Elia with the nearby plunge from the rocks area was a hit with my children who are good swimmers .
The archalogical site of Solunto a must !.
Palermo City a world treasure .
As a cautionary note I would avoid using Taxi services as they are usually expensive .All in all we had a wonderful time and would not hesitate in recommending same .

“Experience the real sicily”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Casteldaccia is an unpreposessing village hiding an experience of the real sicily. Maria and ricardo's villa takes your breath away, and continues to please. So much is accessible from here that even after a month we are still trying to see all the experiences. Ricardo has given us endless access to how things are done locally, as well as his own artistic expression. From cafés to food from shops and restaurants everything is superb and cheap. You should have Ricardo show you how to really cook Sicilian food. If you choose this villa you are choosing far more than somewhere to stay, but also a place full of comfort and delights.

“After this taste of Sicily...you want more !”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 for a stay in July 2012

From the moment you unpack your suitcases in Maria's and Riccardo's home forget what you left behind...at least this is what happened to us, myself and my daughters, while in Casteldaccia and surroundings. The house is quiet but exciting, solid elegance and modern comfort, you are always immersed in a luxuriant garden, the beach only a short drive away. In the long Sicilian summer day there is room and time for a refreshing dip into the sea in the morning, while from the early to the late evening you can go for excursions to Palermo as well as to a number of surrounding magnificent old towns that you have seen only in movies or read about in fictions. The town itself offers opportunities to taste genuine Sicilian specialty food, from you morning coffee to relaxing night suppers in the garden of some local or nearby "trattoria" .. and, above all remember., there is nothing that Maria and Riccardo would not do to make you feel at once at home and in the real thing !
