“Peaceful with the most fabulous sunsets”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our Family of four (two teenagers, 15 and 16 yrs old) thoroughly enjoyed staying in the Upper Villa at Makarios Houses. It is a simple and stylish layout with two terraces and beautifully planted grounds with fresh rosemary, sage, bourgainvillia, agapanthus, jasmine and more. It is more like a large luxury apartment as it's one one level and there is another Villa below it but you are barely aware of the other guests. Due to its position the villa enjoys both the morning and evening sun. Its setting is dramatic as it overlooks the sea in one direction with rocky hills rising up behind it. The sunsets every night are just beautiful and you never tire of them and whilst Sicily can be very hot, you benefit from the sea breezes. There are a few small beaches that are close by which are much nicer and more interesting than the regimented parasol/sunbed packed beaches in San Vito Lo Capo. Fabio is a lovely guy, very attentive and helpful and always available should you have any questions.

“Tranquility Found”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I and my two travel companions spent 7 days of pure heaven at Makarios houses. Fabio, the owner, greeted us upon arrival and gave us a thorough introduction to our "Upper Villa," as well as excellent suggestions for local dining, food, art, hiking, and music. The house is well stocked. Everything you would need whether you wanted to spend time at the house relaxing, or whether your plans are to be on the go in the fabulous province of Trapani. We did a little of both. It was easy to get to Trapani, Segesta, Scopello, the Zingaro Reserve and Palermo airport, but renting a car is highly recommended. The local beaches are also varied and very good--some accessible on foot.

Inside, the bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas are top notch. The kitchen is a little small really big enough for one person, but it has every possible pot, dish, cup you could need. Coffee, sugar, water were all made available.

Outside the two terraces are pure heaven. One has a lovely shaded couch area along with outside dining table. The other has a lovely round table perfect for breakfast in the morning. In fact we had a little work to do while traveling and used a cloudy day to sit outside and hammer out some writing.

The garden is also lovely, we used some of the herbs for cooking, but unfortunately it was too early for any citrus. But the best feature of the "Upper Villa" are the spectacular sunsets to the west. On clear nights the moonsets were equally spectacular. A glass of wine, olives, arancini, salami, and cheese while watching the sun kiss the ocean was a divine end to the day. Also if you don't want to cook and drive somewhere for food, the restaurant across the street is quite good for either lunch or dinner.

I can't wait to return, its definitely worth every penny spent on a truly lovely and unique spot. And lastly if you are into design, as I am by profession, the design and decoration of the house is tastefully well-done. Thanks a million Fabio!

This is a great villa, its really comfortable and spacious with a well equipped kitchen. The 2 outdoor eating areas are great as is the outdoor lounging area. The views and sunsets are hard to beat especially with a glass of cold prossecco in your hand, Villa is really handy for the local beaches, walks and climbing areas.

We enjoyed the stay very much. The flat is spacious with unbeatable bay/sunset view. If you go for the beach it´s worth to drive 10 minutes to S.Vito, especially if you travel with children. The apartment is very clean with great garden outside. Nice restaurant, Azzura Makari (best spaghetti with nero di seppia I´ve ever had) is just across the street. Good location for trips to Segesta/Trapani/Erice. And on top, the host Fabio is really nice and helpful guy, source of information about the neighborhood (incl. trip proposals, restaurant recommendation and many more). We would love to come back!

“Modern lovely Villa, well situated and with a great view of the horizon”

We travelled with small children and had a wonderful stay at Makarios in the end of September. The villa is clean, modern and well furnished and the spacious terraces offer a lovely view towards the sea and the sun set.

The Villa is situated up the hill at Macari, but still a walking distans from the sea and a pebble stone beach. However, to get around easily we used our car quite frequently. The beach at Macari is perhaps not as white as that in San Vito lo Capo, but less frequented by vendors of sunglasses, massages and the like.

Opposite the road is a nice restaurant, Azurra, open for lunch and dinner. A second restaurant is at a 10 min walking distance (closed from October to April).

The host, Fabio, is extremly nice and helpful and speaks English fluently.
