“Villa Bragone”
Reviewed 25 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Maria and her family were more like our family than hosts. The Villa is wonderful and central to the great sites in Palermo and surroundings.
The cooking class turned into a family feast. Our stay created memories of a lifetime!

We spent also memorable time with you. It's interesting to see that a Sicilian cooking class is the occasion to remember old warm memories of our grandparents. And food is a way to meet people and understand them better. Thank you!

It was great to cook with you zucchini flowers, tasting them slowly and preparing together tomatoes from our garden with fresh basil for an unforgettable souse. We understood that cooking is a nice way to meet people and understand a foreign country. Thank you for your stay!

“Perfecto and then beyond Perfecto!”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The hospitality throughout our entire stay by Maria and her entire family was excellent! The house, space amenities and the atmosphere felt like home and the close proximity to the beach without need of a vehicle was wonderful. Termini is a familiar place for me; since I have family there and I could not of chosen a better place to to be close to my family, the Mediterranean and so much more. Our 6 year old grandson so loved his bunk bed room and his trips to the beach; in fact he loved everything about the house and Termini Imeresi as our entire family!

“Authentic and cool Sicilian villa”
Reviewed 22 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

What an amazing place to visit and what an amazing villa to stay at. The house was huge: tall ceilings, two gardens. Very thick walls ensured that the house was very cool during a hot weather. The house was like a home - it definitely did not feel like a "rental". The owners also ensured that the house has everything you would need. Baby bath, toddler toilet seat, games, table cloths, you name it, it was all there.

It was lovely to have a beach so close to the house. We stayed during May and June and we almost had a beach to ourselves. It was wonderful to spend a few hours by the sea and walk back home for some lunch and a siesta!

We found ourselves to be one of very few tourists around the area. Nearby small towns were very Italian, and it was a pleasure be around locals and see how the Italians go about their business. Food in surrounding restaurants was fresh and delicious. Staying with the locals it definitely has its pluses: we have never paid 9 Euros for a bottle of wine at a restaurant before, or 4 euros for 2 cappuccinos and 2 chocolate croissants (this was a busy sea side/ marina cafe at San Nicola l'arena).

During our stay, we visited many surrounding towns and went a little further out to see the ancient temples, Mount Etna, Taormina, Alcantara Gorge, Palermo, scuba - dived in Cefalu and of course, Savoca, where Godfather was filmed.

It was a pleasure to meet Maria and her family. Her husband is an excellent cook - we loved the Sicilian cooking class. We have attempted to cook the same meal since being back home - and it is just not the same...

You will truly feel like from home to home. It is a stunning villa :)

“Tremendous”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

If you truly want to experience life in Sicily then this house is for you. Very close to shops and food with an indescribable view out the of the window. The house is impeccable clean, private and comfortable with all modern conveniences. Maria will certainly treat you like family. She will also be able to set up cooking classes or wine tasting parties in the house. If you really want to eat, drink and sleep like a Sicilian, stay in this Villa.

This is my 3rd visit to Sicily and Villa Bragone. I am Sicilian decendant from Termini Imerese and this vacation home is the best place to stay. The home is nicely decorated and the owners very accommodating. It is centrally located to town shopping and historical sites.The sea views are magnificent.

“Fantastic Vacation Rental”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

I am so happy that I stumbled across this villa as it was absolutely perfect for me and two family members for our week-long stay in Sicily. First, the location is fantastic, especially if you're interested in exploring more of Sicily than just the Palermo area. The short walk to the beach adds another highlight if you want to enjoy the beautiful sun and surf without having to make a major event out of it. The villa itself is a very spacious, updated and comfortable place to stay. The owner, Maria, is incredibly kind and very helpful with providing suggestions and is a very hospitable host. There are two beautiful outdoor seating areas that are lovely to take advantage of for morning coffee or an after dinner drink. I'd certainly recommend staying here - you'll find that it fits your needs whether you're out all day or plan to spend time at the beach cook at the property at night.
