“Bipolar rental”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is really a review based on a very mixed experience. The villa was a little oasis in a rather tatty location. So inside the four walls of the villa, the experience was great. Good size with seven people staying - didn't feel too cramped and with two full bathrooms, we just about made it all work. Well equipped kitchens (nice to have outdoor and indoor with two stoves and two big fridges). Outside space was excellent with plenty of dining and rest space - also had a BBQ for outdoor cooking. Pizza oven would be nice but it was rusted and dirty and didn't entice us to try. Loungers around be nice-sized pool made for relaxing daytime experience. Beautiful landscaping of palms, lawn and plants. Fresh basil, oregano and mint grew in pots and was used for cooking most nights. Access to local cuisine is decent - a couple of really nice seafood restaurants nearby.
Now for the downside - the area outside Mazara del Vallo is really grubby. Garbage is left everywhere and is dumped unceremoniously by the road - the strong winds mean that there is trash everywhere. Half the local properties seem to be unfinished or abandoned - more Alleppo than Italy. There are really mangy looking stray dogs roaming around that make a lot of noise at night - they bark and fight and are really annoying. Because they are stray, they rummage in the dumped garbage making that situation worse ... And when they are hit by passing cars, they are left to nature by the side of the road. I run - when I went for a run from the villa, the roadkill was a pretty unsavory attack on my senses.
So the trip to Sicily wasn't quite the idyllic scenario we hoped for - very nice villa in a rather downbeat location that didn't have the visual and cultural impact we had hoped for.

We have stayed in many nice villas over the years but this was something special. Antonino and Valeria were brilliant and rightly take pride in their property. The "welcome pack" was way beyond anything you might expect and included a box of local delicacies. The villa is a bit away from local amenities, but it is so nice that we wined and dined a lot at the villa using the great outside eating facilities including BBQ and Pizza oven. Finally the pool was really big; the best we have found in a rented villa. Fantastic holiday and hopefully we will return.
