What an absolutely beautiful location this home has. The view is breathtaking. There were a total of 6 adults on this trip and the home was plenty spacious enough. We enjoyed that gorgeous view in the mornings, afternoons and at night looking at the lights of Castellammare de Golfo and Palermo. I could hear the waves crashing from the open window in the bedroom.I LOVED that.
The home itself is extremely clean and furnished with everything you could possibly need; glasses, dishes, towels, extra pillows and even wine to purchase if you set that up before hand. The living room is inviting and cozy, the kitchen is fully functional with toaster, blenders and more. The bedrooms had shelving, air conditioning and fans and were very comfortable. The deck where we spent many evenings just relaxing is absolutely amazing!!
The location itself on the West coast was ideal for us. One great feature is that its close to Scopello Market. We picked up food, snacks, wine, pastries, sandwiches, salami, proscuitto, peach juice etc there. Very convenient. At night we took a 5 minute ride to Scopello's tiny city center to enjoy casual dinners after our busy days. During the week we were there we went to Erice (1 hour), Trapani (50 minutes), Cefalu (2 hours..and not to be missed!) and Agrigento (2 hours). Castellammare de Golfo is about 15 minutes away and Palermo airport is only 50 minutes away. The home was in the perfect position for us to enjoy day trips with our rental car.
The house is located on the border of the Zingaro Reserve and I highly suggest you hike this. Its a tad strenuous and there are steep parts but the payoff of seeing the views is worth it. You can walk there or I would suggest parking the car below because its quite steep returning to the house.
Alfonso is VERY very nice and helpful. From before we left for the trip with all my questions to us trying to find the house (its not hard once you know where it is! :) to answering other questions he was wonderful.
I would highly recommend this home on the west coast, away from all the craziness of the bigger cities. The view is so beautiful - today is our first day back and it was so sad not waking up to the ocean. I think I'm going to print up one of my beautiful photos and put it on my bedroom wall so I can ALWAYS wake up to that view. Thank you Alfonso - my family and I loved our trip in your beautiful home and we can't thank you enough!. Arrivederci! Until we meet again!!
