We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Casa Grande. The gardens and pool in particular were a highlight – our 18 month old loved exploring the endless gardens and fruit orchard on the site – there was so much for her to see and the views are even more magical than the photos suggest.
Although we did see other guests, the pool was never crowded and we often had it to ourselves. We liked the rustic feel of the house – it felt like an authentic Italian experience.
It was also a great base for being close to the airport – and we enjoyed day trips to Erice (to the east) and Cefalu (along the coast to the west). Highly recommended!
Great place, easy to find once we got the GPS coordinates, beautiful house, good parking, location surrounded by natures. We loved the pool and used the kitchen a lot for cooking (which is well equipped). Had everything we needed and we would defiantly recommend it to others
Really very nice place, house is charming, old sicilian style, wonderful atmosphere on the terrace. We had very nice time there (12 days), also our childern, they enjoyed swimming pool, cats, kittens and garden. Kitchen has good equipement. The house was clean. For sure you need a car. The nearest nice beach is apr. 15 km away (Balestrate).
Two of us have light sleep, they had a bit problem to sleep in the room directed to the motorway behind the house, its only 100m away. During the day it wasn´t any problem.
We can recomend for your holiday. Giovanni and Stephanie are very friendly.
La casa es espectacular, cómoda limpia y con todos los servicios.
Giovanni y su esposa muy atentos en todo momento.
My friends and me spent in "casa grande" a great time! The house is even much more charming and beautiful than the pictures can tell. It is decorated in a very tasteful way, each room is very cosy, the kitchen is something to dream of and the terrace is a place which you do not want to leave because it feels fantastic to sit there. We felt like in the midst of nature and countryside, and it did not disturb us at all that we could hear the motorway a little, little bit and that we could hear each other in the house.
Also the parc is even much more beautiful than pictures can tell. The whole area is like a paradise, where we have spent very relaxing and extraordinary days. The children had much fun, too - there was always something in the parc they could discover and they could go into the swimming pool (which is quite big and very enjoyable to swim in!).
The hosts are extremely welcoming, nice and lovely, they help immediately as soon there is a problem. They even gave us a ride with their car when we arrived with a big delay at 2.30 a.m. (in the midst of the night!) at the airport.
So, all in all: We are very, vey happy that we could spend our holiays in 'casa grande'.
Great place, incredible view, huge swimming pool and we even got a cake from Giovanni who is a friendly and chilled host. The place is located near the airport, around 20min away. It's THE perfect place for a big group of friends :-)
Monica and giovanni werr wonderful hosts, very flexible, communicative and the house was very beautiful!
