Villa Platani
Ranked #1 of 2 Cianciana B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Apologies for having forgotten to write this! I returned to the Villa in September alone to buy a property - (a rather daunting prospect, even for an italian speaking woman) for one week and I would recommend it for any lone travellers out there wishing to explore Cianciana and the surrounding areas.

Teresa and Clive were supportive, informative and welcoming as usual. The pool was immaculate, lovely temperature and so relaxing and with the internet readily available, I was able to retreat, read and work at my leisure.

I would thoroughly recommend the Villa to lone travellers, looking to escape!

Stayed: September 2013, travelled solo

"A safe Haven of Luxury" Thank you for that review and although it has be mentioned by many during conversation you are the first to include it in your review.

The last I heard the annual crime rate in Cianciana was 0.01% which was probably when a cat got run over by a family of 5 on a motor bike. ( only joking those days are long gone ) In nearly 30 years of visiting and more recently living in Cianciana I have never seen a street fight or a drunk.There are no graffiti artists and no drugs that I am aware of yet during the summer months the town is buzzing with tourists well into the early hours of the morning. For the younger ones there are disco bars and for us others there's plenty of friends to meet and stories to tell over a glass of Vino. When you add the peace and tranquility of Villa Platani with its own private pool,nearby large towns like Sciacca,the world class Forte golf course and the fantastic sandy beaches a short drive away through some amazing scenery then yes I totally agree with you. This is definately a safe Haven for families and those travelling alone.

This was our second visit to CianCiana and Villa Platani and it was even better than the first.

Sometimes when you revisit a destination and a particular Hotel you often expect the experience to be as good as your previous and inevitably it isn't and end up disappointed. Not with this combination. It just gets better ! The Town. The Accommodation and the Hospitality of both the CianCianese and Clive & Teresa make this an unforgettable experience that we both cant wait to repeat again and again.

We will see you again soon.

David & Jules.

I can really only reiterate what many others have said... the way the house has been restored and tastefully decorated is very impressive. We were there in October when weather was perfect, lovely sunny days with temperatures of around 24C. Unfortunately we only had one night in the villa as my partner was keen to move on to Siracusa, he's of Sicilian origin and it was his first time back for 45 years! Still he got to see a side of Sicily he hadn't seen before. I would have loved to spend more time at Villa Platani as the views and the air were wonderful and Clive and Teresa very interesting people, so it would have been nice to have more time to chat with them. I would also have liked to explore the surrounding area and the beaches. I can't find anything very original to say but things like nice firm beds, beautiful bedding and a good shower are very important to me! I've just realised that I gave the fitness centre and spa 5 stars, but didn't actually see them as I was there such a short time - but imagine the standard is just as high as for everything else in the villa. I highly recommend Villa Platani.

We stayed at the lovely villa Platani for 2 nights. The owners are as lovely as everyone describes them. They were very helpful with every question we had (and we had many). The rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated. Cianciana is a quite little town, perfect for taking the time off to simply relax and enjoy.

Superb recently restored Villa Platani. Luxury in a beautiful setting.
This villa B & B has it all, lovingly restored and fit for Royalty. All of the bedrooms are exquisite with beautiful decor and opulent furnishings, all provide a restful and very pleasant stay. There is a wonderful swimming pool and superb poolside lounging providing plenty of sun and shade for spending many hours reading, relaxing and indulging in wonderful surroundings. Ideally located for exploring nearby temple ruins and just 30 mins from lovely beaches. Clive and Teresa look after everyone and nothing is too much trouble. Book early as they are often fully booked which is only to be expected. We will be going back.

Villa Platani is located in the small town of Cianciana surrounded by rolling mountains. The villa has been lovingly restored by Clive and Teresa to an exceptionally high standard. It really is a home from home. Clean and comfortable rooms beautifully decorated with tea/coffee facilities, WiFi and TV in the room. The villa is perfect if you are touring Sicily and need a stop over or visiting family near by. Breakfast was naughty and nice at the same time - fruit, yoghurt, cereal and breads all provided and Teresa very kindly allowed for my milk allergy and provided rice milk - super star. We were made to feel very welcome and only had to ask if we needed anything or wanted to know about the local area.
Lovely peaceful location with a beautiful pool and plenty of books to read if you finish yours!
If you are in the area this is a must stay.

yet another wonderful break on the beautiful Island although this time with spectacular weather conditions.
the pool and garden now finished look stunning and finishes off the villa as a luxury place to stay.
as always highest standards of comfort and cleanliness, healthy full breakfasts and relaxing villa with plenty of books to read or music to listen to and a great place to play ( and win) at Cards..

Room Tip: the best room is the one looking over the hills towards Ribera
