“Very enjoyable”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Michele was great at communicating and corresponding quickly. The villa was perfect for our needs as it provided an excellent baee for us to day trip from as we had a car. In addtion to sailing, swimming and snorkelling, we walked through the Zingaro park, visited Cefalu, Segesta, Selinunte, Marsala, Palermo, Erice, castellammare del Golfo, and if course Scopello. The people in the msin were very friendly and we had a wonderful time. However, you do need a car iv you intend to do more than swim and relax in the villa, as Scopello is not on the main route for any public transport

The villa, location and Michele all contributed positively to our wonderful holiday.

“Fantastic holiday”

Myself, my husband and 3 children, 15,11 and 5 spent 2 weeks at villa aquamarine, the house itself was great, each of the bedrooms were very comfortable and the air con made a hide difference. Michele was available for any problem that arose and they were sorted out immediately.
Each day we went to the beach which is an easy walk down too, a slightly more difficult walk up from, and is slightly rocky which isn't a problem, but some may prefer beach shoes.
The nearby village of scopello is lovely, lots of great bars and restaurants. All in all a lovely holiday.

“Lovely first time in Scopello”
Reviewed 19 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My wife and I stayed at the lovely Villa Aquamarina in Sept 2015 with our extended family from USA. We were here to trace their roots back to their Sicilian family, and the villa and Scopello provided a great base to do that.

The villa was well appointed, great value and had a wonderful location. Close to local shops and sights in the little beautiful Scopello, as well as secluded beaches and its own private path down to a lovely private bay.

We lost water early on in our stay and Michele resolved this very quickly, sending the great Gaspare round to sort things and we had water back in no time. The only thing I would perhaps say is that we would have liked a few more bath towels. This didnt affect our stay but it would be nice.

Location was so private, off the beaten track .. we couldnt believe it when we drove down the tiny road to the property. It was so beautiful!

The villa had everything we needed and we would definitely stay there again.

Thanks for a great trip!

“Fantastic vacation”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at villa Aquamarina in August 2015 for two weeks. Great place to stay, we enjoyed it tremendously. The house has very nice and big garden. The apartment is spacious. There is everything you may imagine to need at the villa. Kitchen is well equipped. It is very pleasant to find all the 'small things', like salt, sugar, oil, spices, tea, rubbish bags, etc - the things you usually buy at the first day when you arrive to a rented house (we had 3 times experience renting houses in previous years). There are even 2 umbrellas and 3 sun beds, several soft rugs to take to the beach.
The small beach is not far from the house, it is fine to swim in the sea after sightseeing. There is pebble on the beach, but we did not face any problems, swimming without special shoes, the are no urchins in the water. The water is very clean, transparent and warm. We went to some other beaches for the day long, because it is difficult to find the place on the beach near the villa if you like to sleep long.
We loved the silence of the place, fantastic view from the terrace. Having breakfast with sea view, having dinners, smelling the sea and listening to it - it is the loveliest experience, the best you may wish for summer holiday.
There were three small charming lizards, that came in the evening to the terrace walls. It was interesting to watch them having their 'dinner' - hunting for the flies - the speed of their movements is impressing. Lizards never came to a house - as we understand, there is a special thing, that makes a special kind of quite sound, that scares them. This sound do not disturb you. There was also no problem with the insects - there are fumigators in the house. So our stay was very comfortable in all aspects.
Michele is very caring and thoughtful host. We didn't face any problems during our stay. Thanks a lot for the attitude and the house.
