On the other side of the Villa is where usually my parents and sometime me and Giulia spend the summer but also we use to travel so maybe we will not be there the entire period of your stay, however the Villa is designed to guarantee everyone their privacy and tranquility. we rent the villa per week from saturday to saturday. Palermo airport is very close, 15 minutes by car palermo city is reachable in 30 minutes by car. From the house in one houre by car you will reach also famous touristic place as San Vito Lo Capo, Erice, Selinunte, Cefalù, Trapani with the Egadi islands and many other place.
The pool is open seasonally from 15 June till 15 September. It has opening time 10 to 14 and from 16 till 19:30
Be respectful, turn off air conditioning and lights when you are not at home. Leave the bin outside the gates only after 5PM, pick up is at 6PM
Upon arrival we were greeted by the very nice neighbours. The house was better than described. Very comfortable with a great living room, a fully functional kicthen, different patios, olive trees and air conditioned bedrooms.
The swimming pool has a great size and there is a lifeguard present at all times.
The neighbourhood is quiet and the beach club in the small bay situated not far from the house plays music from time to time, but the level of volume will not bother you.
5 minutes drive from the house you will find the center of the town of Terrasini with a number of nice restaurants and a vibrant square as well as supermarkets and pastry shops.
The house is also perfectly placed for a trip up and down the coastline to San Vito lo Capo. Don't miss out on renting a boat in the small harbour of Castellammare del Golfo - 90 Euros including a full tank of gas is downright cheap for a boat that easily carries 4 adults. This is really the perfect way to explore the coastline.
The communication with the hosts worked really well in a timely and informative manner.
If we should return to this part of Sicily we would not think twice about renting this wonderful place again!
In one word- WOW!
We were 5 adult family and we stayed for 4 days,
The villa is absolutely amazing! it was 100% well equipped!
the design is amazing, all new, clean, comfortable, much more beautiful then any luxury hotel I have even been in.
The kitchen is equipped with all necessary and we had fun cooking meals in it and dinning in the big dinning room, or on the porch.
the house has a large garden all around, 3 sitting areas outside, ping pong table, private gym and much more.
Fabrizio was out of Sicily but he was available most of the time and sent someone to take care of any request we had.
the pool is great, shared with the villa area (5 villas I think) it was open on certain hours during the weekend.
Terassini- the place where the villa is located is also a beautiful touristic place located on a cliff. in the center there is a piazza with lots of stores restaurants and bars. Terassini is 30 min from Palermo City and 20 Min from the airport.**you must rent a car in order to stay there.
If we ever come back to Sicily We will deferentially stay on Fabrizio and Gulia's villa. fantastic value for money, made our vacation perfect!
For sure the best place we could have stayed in Sicily! Ms Di Giovanni welcomed us personally, showing us around and making us feel very comfortable from the first second we have arrived, until the end of our stay. She even had organized a bowl of fresh fruits from their garden to welcome us. The house is better than what is shown in the pictures: very nice architecture, first class materials and very cosy. Everything we needed, Ms. Di Giovanni was there with a big smile to help us. All the appliances in the kitchen were working fine and we had more than we needed. We thank the Di Giovanni's for giving us the opportunity of feeling at home during our stay in their place. It is only important to say that you will need a car if you want to stay there (this was made clear by Fabrizio in our first contact). There is a small beach 5 min walking from the house, but I recommend that you use the house as a base to explore Sicily, since distances are not too long. From there we went to Erice, Palermo, Scopello, among other places. Terrasini itself is not the most beautiful town in Sicily, but has nice restaurants, gelaterias and pizzerias. Mr. Di Giovanni's recommendation was really one of the best: Prima Fila, near the port of Terrasini (book in advance). I highly recommend Di Giovanni's place for anyone wanting to explore Sicily by their own means.
All the Best, Di Giovanni's and if you ever come to Brazil, please let me know!
First of all some words about our hosts. We didn't meet Fabrizio or Giuliana but their parents stayed in the villa next to ours. Especially Signora Di Giovanni was very lovely and helpful whenever we need something. Helpful for us was that we speak italian.
The villa was actually as shown at the pictures. Very modern, clean and comfortable, with a big, well-kept garden. We liked it very much. Only the sprinkler which started each morning very early, was a little pain as it was really loud. The pool was big but unfortunately not directly at our site and it was open just at special times, watched by a guardian. But anyway okay.
The environment: a bit stinted and you could only see the sea at the roof terrasse. To go to Terrassini for shopping or for dinner it is good to have a car, you can reach all the Important places in some minutes. In any event a car is recommendable for discovering the beautiful Island and to visit different beaches, which are not so interesting at Terrasini.
The villa is a good alternative to the expensive touristic places, when you are travelling in a big group and when you are willing to use the car every day.
Prachtig huis en een vriendelijk onthaal. Eigenaars zijn zeer behulpzaam. Het huis ligt met andere huizen nabij het grote zwembad. Spijtig genoeg is het zwembad slechts toegankelijk van 10:30 tot 13:30 en van 16:30 tot 19:30. Afstand tot het strand bedraagt enkele honderd meters!
