The villa is perfectly situated for a great break. The local beach is a ten minute walk away, it's a bit steep coming back but great exercise! Perfect for sunbathing in the early morning or late afternoon and missing the crowds.

The Zingaro nature reserve is splendid and also just a short walk away from the house and is really worth a visit either for walking or sunbathing and swimming in one of the small coves.

Within an hour's drive are Erice (not to be missed), and the greek temples at Segesta and Selinunte.

The little village of Scopello is also walking distance away and great for dinner in the evening. there are a few restaurants either in the small square or overlooking the coast, all quite good.

A couple of kilometres away is the local supermarket which, although small has virtually everything you could need on holiday and excellent local fresh produce.

The house is semi detached but designed in a way the gives you plenty of privacy and there is a wonderful terrace at the front where you can eat in the shade with a gentle cooling breeze.

Finally Giuseppina and her husband were both were friendly and helpful and spoke good English.

We had a lovely break at Ville delle Palme.

“Very relaxing lovely place to stay ,beautiful part of Sicily.”
Reviewed 11 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I would reccomend this villa. We had a lovely week here. the area is beutiful and would come back again. Guiseppina, the owner is very welcoming and helpful, The village is in walking distance where it has some lovely restaurants meaning you can go out and have a drink and lovely meal and not worry about having to drive. Our favourite meal was at the Benistra Hotel in the village. The Villa was well equipped and had all that you needed. Castellamare de Golfo is a short drive away where there is a lovely sandy beach and the reserve is just down the road. We could have walked it but didn't realise how near we were to it. I recommend that you have a car as the supermarket is too far to walk to and there are so many places to visit.

Stayed for three weeks in this comfortable villa. Plenty of outside and inside space and the villa had everything we needed. Well equipped kitchen and handy washing machine. Lovely views from the villa's patio with outside seating at the front and back of the villa. Useful air conditioning unit is in the lounge only. Semi detached aspect of villa was well thought out as both patios were quite private.

Guiseppina and her family were very helpful without being intrusive. Although a steep walk down to the pebble beach, this was not a problem and there is an option of taking a car if the 15 minute walk does not appeal. Scopello is only a 10 minute walk and has a number of options for eating out. The local supermarket is a few minutes in the car and meets most needs, other larger supermarkets in Castellemmarre.

Plenty of places to visit nearby and the local reserve can be reached on foot, although does charge an entrance fee. San Vito Lo Capo good if you want a busier sandy beach, but lots of lovely small pebble coves nearby which are hood for snorkelling. An overnight trip to Mt Etna was well worth the trip and the cable car ride up to Medieval Erice was about an hour away (take an extra layer of clothing).

A relaxing holiday in a peaceful part of Sicily.

“A perfect holiday”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Villa delle Palme is perfectly situated halfway between the Zingaro reserve and the centre of Scopello so wonderful beaches and restaurants are only a short walk away. The villa is spacious and comfortable with a Mediterranean garden so plenty of shade when it gets too hot. It is a really peaceful place in a beautiful location.
A huge plus point to staying here is the owner Giuseppina. She speaks fantastic English and is available to be contacted at any time should there be any problems. Her genuine kindness and interest in us having a good holiday were a real bonus.

“Excellent villa in wonderful location”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Villa delle Palme is a great villa, very comfortable, in excellent condition and very light and airy, well equipped kitchen/cooking facilities. The views are fantastic, big mountain out the back and views of the sea from the front verandah. The road is very quiet.
Guiseppina was very helpful in meeting us, showing us around the villa.
The villa is annexed to villa next door, also owned by Guiseppina, but the arrangement of the villas are such that both sets of occupants have total privacy. Alternatively use of both villas by a large party would also be ideal.
As others have mentioned the driveway is steep and winding and is not easy with a family sized car, so it really is best to get a small car.
The location is walking distance to Scopello and very close to beach. There is a restaurant 200m or so from the villa which is open lunchtime and some evenings. The location is also very good for exploring that side of Sicily.
