“Charming house in heart of Punta Secca”

person found this review helpful

This is an exceptionally charming house located right in the heart of the village and just a stones throw from the beach. On arrival we were met by the owner who gave us a quick tour of the village and chatted through some of the interesting local attractions. The house was spacious, clean, bright and well equipped including a welcome pack of local wine, fruit and chocolate. The sunny balcony overlooked the village square where there was a selection of good restaurants and cafes. We spent a wonderful two weeks here enjoying the sandy beach and the local attractions. We would definitely recommend this house to other travellers.

“Perfect house in a perfect location”
Reviewed 23 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The Villa is a very well fitted out house with all one could want for a wonderful holiday in Punta Secca. It is relatively spacious and provides a good space in which to relax..
The owner was very caring and attentive and ensured that everything was right for us. The location is ideal, as one would expect from the name, and provides a good view towards the Montalbano villa. The visitors that flock to Montalbano's place are not intrusive.
The town of Punta Secca is a great place and has all the essential facilities, and is a good base from which to visit surrounding areas.

“It was simply - wonderful !”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our holiday in Sycily was an epitome of a truely beautiful and relaxing holiday. Sicily being one the most beautiful and amazing places we have seen, the land and the people alike, deliver whole range of sensations and emotions.
However hot , we discovered Sicily is also warm. Warm in terms of aura, hospitality and sense of cosiness created by its people.
The house we stayed in follows the best standards and the best of what the country has to offer. In every meaning.
Situated in the central point of Punta Secca, a little village town in the south east of Sicily, the house is very well designed, equally for the eyes and for the comfort of living in it.
The family who owns it,courtious, hospitable, makes you feel at home. It is not just a professional facade... Genuinely.
Quite a separate chapter is Edoardo, who deals with the matters related directly to letting the house. He is one of the most amazing people we have ever come across. True son of his so nice family .
An extremely pleasant and nice person to have around, showing the necessary amount of support and giving sense of security, patient and always ready to attend. In a nice , easy going manner.
What has to be pointed out is that the interior of the house has been designed solely by Edoardo's Mum and the job she's done is great. So she deserves congratulations especially she is not a professional in the area of interior design. Congratulations!
We loved every munute of our stay in the house and in Sicilly.

“A wonderful apartment in a stunning location”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our stay in Punta Secca was part of a longer trip to Sicily, and was without doubt the best part.

Punta Secca is a beautiful little town. Great restaurants, a couple of good supermarkets, a few bars, and that's it, but it's all we needed. A lovely beach with soft sandy areas and a gently sloping sea bed which is great for kids. Oh, and THAT house, for Montalbano fans...

The apartment itself is wonderful. Beautifully renovated, excellent facilities, and 2 minutes walk from the beach. Absolutely perfect. Comfortable beds, two superb bathrooms, a huge kitchen dining area, and a big terrace with a view of the lighthouse, the beach, and THAT house...

Edoardo is the perfect host. He lives next-door and so is often on hand to answer queries. For those like me whose Italian is not great, he speaks English really well. He really couldn't do enough for us. He met us at the bus stop on our arrival, took us to the apartment, and gave us a tour of the town. We lost some luggage on the way down, and he went out of his way to help us replace some critical items. He also drove us to our next stop, helping us avoid a challenging bus journey on a hot day, which we really appreciated.

Overall this is one of the best apartments we have ever stayed at, and we will absolutely be returning in future.

When we arrived we were met and greeted by the owner, Eduardo. He was charming and knowledgable about the property and the locale. The Villa is on two floors, each with a full bathroom. Downstairs are the two bedrooms and upstairs the kithen / lounge area with access to a large balcony. Everything is almost new and very well decorated. The view from the balcony is very, very good - while we were there filming was taking place for Montalbano - which was a bonus,and not intrusive. Two good sandy beaches are within a skimming stone distance and are seperated by the small marina - always a point of interest. There are various local restaurants supplying good locale Sicillian fare. I wish we could have stayed for longer as it would make a good base to explore further afield.
And there's now an iron........

“Outstanding,clean,well equipped friendly clear communication”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Edoardo was a wonderful host Nothing however small was too much trouble including trying to recover a stolen Ipad (beware your baggage when going through the relative chaos of signing up for your hire car at Catania airport!)
Edoardos house is very close to the beach ..is quiet and incredibly well equipped..he has thought of everything and it all works very well
He speaks perfect English (he is a trained pilot and would make an excellent employee ..are you listening Steli or Michael O'Leary?)
Cannot recommend enough a little bit of calm in what can be a slightly chaotic Sicily.
