“Excellent!”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Back from another fantastic visit at Villa Mara, turning into an annual event! The pool is fantastic and the house very comfortable. Agree with previous note about the lack of good knives in the kitchen, otherwise very happy – and the views can’t be beaten!

Drinks in the main piazza is very nice, but if you want to eat in the restaurant, bear in mind that it gets busy.

I would recommend a car – we went to Cefalu for most of our grocery shopping and bought smaller items and water in the local store.

Antonio was great as always, and very helpful when my luggage was delayed. Can highly recommend this Villa!

Great place. We will be back some day. Walking the hills was tough for my elder father and uncle but we worked it out. Great village. Antonio is a great man. Thanks to all.

“Absolutely stunning”

We stayed at Villa Mara with our 2 very young children. The view from the balcony of the property and the pool which is on a different level and accessed by an external stair is absolutely amazing! The house itself is perfectly adequate and in what I assume is a fairly traditional Sicilian style, the owners had put in a stair gate for us which we didn't think to ask for but was very much appreciated and also provided a high chair and cot. It is the outside spaces that really made the property for us.

The living room is down beside the pool and also accessed by the external stair so we didn't tend to use it as in the evenings it would mean that the children in bed were in a different section of the property, this didn't matter to us and if you didn't have young children then would be a lovely additional space.

The property has it's own parking space which is very useful but it is a narrow pass to get to it so don't get too large a car (we had a 5 door car around the size of a Ford Focus and it was fine). Getting out of the space is not for the faint hearted as it is quite a steep exit, but manageable.

Antonio is great and very helpful.
