What a wonderful place! We knew we made the right choice from the moment Alessandra opened the gate. The garden is enchanting, fresh figs that can be eaten straight off the tree, lemons and grapes. The children spent a lot of their time playing there.
The house was exactly as we had hoped it would be. A home away from home with plenty of space for nine of us. We were two families and at no time did we feel cramped or running out of space. Everything we needed was there, we had barbecues and cooked.
Casteldaccia is not a touristy town but if you want to experience everyday Sicilian life, this is the right place. Supermarket is around the corner, beautiful gelato can be got just down the road and as for the breads and pastries... don't come here if you're on a diet because you need to try all the delicious fresh and cheap foods available. Some lovely Pizzerias and restaurants as well, if you have children, Piano Verde has a gated playground, nice food and friendly staff.
The closest beach is a good 20 minute walk away, it's hilly.
Now to the most important part. Maria and Riccardo, the owners were unbelievable in the hospitality and helpfulness. Giving advice, organising car rental ( definitely would recommend renting a car), Riccardo doing ceramics with the children, giving advice in an unobtrusive manner and cooking a fantastic meal for us. This has been a holiday to remember for all the right reasons. Don't forget your insect repellent.

“Not just a holiday, it was an experience ”

From the moment we arrived at Castledaccia train station I knew we'd made the right choice with this place. A warm welcome from Maria and Alessandra followed by a excillerating ride up the hill in Marias vintage VW Beetle started our holiday in earnest. This is the most relaxing holiday home I've been to, its got everything you could need, spacious comfortable bedrooms and a great outdoor seating area where we spent many hours relaxing. The accommodation included basics like soap, tissue, washing powder and kitchen condiments this helped us feel at home straight away.

Our hosts struck the perfect balance between being available for advice and assistance with any of our needs and never intruding. Their help is genuine and forthcoming which is great when you're in unfamiliar territory.

After a few days exploring Casteldaccia and trips by train we built up the courage to hire a car and Riccardo was most helpful with organising this.
We picked up a little Fiat Panda from Frank at the car center in Casteldaccia which allowed us to see highlights such as Taormina and Erice. Frank was a pleasure to do business with. If you don't like walking get a car!

This isn't a touristy town, its the real deal. The best gelato we had in Sicily, was here in Casteldaccia. Fantastic value bakerys restaurants and takeaways, just a short walk.

We especially enjoyed the day when Riccardo and Maria made fresh pesto and passata in their little garden kitchen and allowed us to join in the fun.

Coming from rainy Ireland it was a treat to relax in the beautiful garden, a safe place for the kids to play surrounded by fig trees, lemons and grapes.

After two weeks, there are still places left to explore.
This place was everything we hoped it would be and then some.
Both us and our kids loved our trip and will go home with great memories for life.

Thank you so much Maria and Riccardo

“It was good to be back”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was our second visit, and our desire to return was not misplaced. It's a lovely, spacious house, with room to relax indoors and out, and everything works, including the excellent wi-fi.

Casteldaccia is a really friendly little town which we got to know even better this time. We love the place, and plan to return for a third visit. Highly recommended.

“Wow”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Villa della Palma, is a wonderful gem to discover in the middle of a bustling town. It is a spacious family home brimming with Sicilian character. The villa is decorated with stunning tiled floors and authentic furniture. The garden is a wonderful highlight. The orchard was laden with fruit and the scent of jasmine filled the air. Each morning we breakfasted on croissants and coffee on the verandah and discussed the plans for the day. We slept very well in the comfortable beds. I would advise,if you can, to sleep in a bedroom away from the road, as the traffic picks quite early in the morning and it is noisy in the front bedroom. There is a well stocked supermarket nearby and a bakery across the road. It is a great spot to base yourself for exploring Sicily, it's not far from the autostrade or the coastal road.

“A marvellous unvergettable sunshining holiday at a special location”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed as 4 adults at the upper terrace for 8 days and really enjoyed the various space. Maria and Antonio were very kind and most helpful, even transport to the railwaystation in an oldmobile was provided!
The tropic garden below and the sea breeze and mountainview across the valley from above offered us unforgettable memories. The calmness, the hospitality and respectful way ours hosts treated us.... really great!
