About this listing
CASE VACANZE ZUCCO
The houses are situated in the Terrasini district 150 metres above sea level and 1½ Km from the beach.
They have a spectacular view of the gulf of Castellamare.
The main house was originally one of the hunting lodges in the estate of the Prince of Orleans, in what
was once called the Zucco estate, which used to extend over 700,000 m2.
Over the years, the buildings were put to various uses and in more recent times the lodge became a farmstead.
Surrounded by an orange grove, they include the old manor house and a courtyard surrounded by smaller houses
each of which has its own patio area.
Holidays in this complex, though featuring all modern comforts, allow you to enjoy the pleasures of rural Sicily
as it once was with its particular style and atmosphere. You can relax completely yet find all kinds of recreational
activities nearby, in the little seaside villages of the Mediterranean or the hamlets sheltered in the hills around
or on the little offshore islands. Towns full of artistic masterpieces and fashionable tourist resorts are
within easy reach. The advantage of a holiday home is that you can choose your own pace and satisfy your
specific needs with your friends and family. Your children can enjoy the freedom of home while being a stone’s
throw from the most beautiful spots of Sicily.
Only a holiday home like this can free you from timetables and schedules. You decide when and what to visit,
yet you get a taste of what life in Sicily is really like.
Book your holiday now! We are looking forward to helping you to relax and enjoy all the thrills that our land can offer.

First of all I'd like to state that this is not supposed to be a negative feedback though it may seem as one. We had some issues with our house but Giovanni, Stefania and Monica were very helpful and cooperative which we very much appreciate. They are nice people and they came all the way from Palermo to welcome us.
When we arrived, Giovanni showed us around. Though he doesn't speak much english, he did his best and we got along well. His wife
The property is beautiful. When you take a walk, there's always something new to discover. Giovanni maintained a lot of the original buildings, garden, walls and sitting areas which gives the whole property character.
The staff was very nice and they were immediatly on the spot when we had a question.
We only stayed one night at their place because the house we booked wasn't available at our arrival. Other issues were a damp wall in the bedroom and the shower that wasn't working properly - just minutes after we texted Giovanni and Stefania, they sent one of their staff members over who tried to fix it.
Unfortunately the WiFi doesn't work in the houses - it works best in the pool area and an outside sitting area.
Simply a gorgeous place to unwind: we stayed in a charming little cottage with the right touch of ambient and comfortable style...superb pool area and surroundings, and not to forget very nice hosts who made us feel very welcome...Great place to hide away!!
Our stay in Casa Laghetto was very pleasant. Giovanni is a very welcome host and catered to our every needs (babychair/beach umbrella/babybed). The house itself is quite basic and has a rustic look, but comes equipped with everything you might need, including airco. Which you really need, since the upstairs bedroom on the vide gets very warm in summer. There are a total of nine or so different houses in the gardens and the swimmingpool is communal. But most of the time its not so busy or you have the place all to yourself. The pool itself and the view to the sea is truly awesome! (as shown on the photo's).
The location of the house is good, altho sometimes a bit noisy, since the highway is located quite close to the houses. But unless you are looking for a place where crickets and birds are the only sounds you want to hear, don't let this put you off. The paradise-like feel of the place more than makes up for this. The place is near to the quaint fishingtown of Terrassini (a nice little town) and conveniantly near to the airport (20 min drive). It's also very centrally located as a jumping off point to a lot of the sights you might want to see in the NW part of Sicily.
We loved this place! Nice house, beautiful view, excellent (and very clean!) swimmingpool.
We spent our mornings very relaxed in the garden or swimmingpool. In the afternoon we left for trips in the neighbourhood. Palermo is not too far away and there are many other nice places nearby to visit.
Guivonni is a nice guy, who made us feel very welcome at his property.
Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour à la casa Lagheto ...
C'est juste le paradis sur terre ... Un endroit magnifique avec des hôtes d'exception ... Giovanni et son frère sont juste de belles personnes .,,
I reccomend Casa Laghetto with swimmingpool, the property is great with orange and lemon trees and and other exotic plants.
The pool is great with a stunning view of the bay, where you can relax all day.
House was modest and charming no frills, but with a beautiful terrace and a barbecue.
Giovanni during our stay was sick, his brother came to us and explained everything to us which was very helpful.
The only negatives were the motorway which runs a few hundred meters behind the estate, which came the low noise and two gates to the property locked with a padlock,which was a pain in the butt:)
Youreally need a car as the local store and the town is 5 km away.
Highly recommend this place and hope to return some day.
Superb, giant property! Authentic sicilian country house lovers: it is your place! Best panoramic swimming pool award goes to their pool! :) We loved it!
Extra: Giovanni's welcome package with wine was a surprise. :)
thanks for everything, we are planning to come back again with a bigger gang. Only one suggestion: if you are geek family, the wifi will superslow for you, not enough for videoskype.
