“Fabulous authentic villa with beautiful garden and fantastic pool”
Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The villa is situated on the edge of an interesting authentic Sicilian town of a good size; not touristy with all the necessary shops! It's in a lovely part of Sicily with easy reached day trips to Parlermo, Erica, Trapani, Marsala del Valla and the ruins of Selenunte, Segesta and Agrigento as well as the lovely coastal areas.

The villa itself is surrounded by a beautiful walled garden and is approached via large antique gates with a long drive. Within the garden there's two self contained cottages each with a double and single bedroom, kitchen and living space, both of which are delightful. The villa has 6 bedrooms over 3 floors (one in the attic ) and all the rooms are large with beautiful antique furniture. Downstairs there's various living rooms - so Lots of room to relax .

There's also a lovely area outside the kitchen to eat breakfast and lunch with a large table enough for a big party of 16.

The pool area is fabulous and the pool deep and large enough to do proper lengths and have a lovely swim. There's also lots of facilities and a table tennis table.

This was a fantastic villa, in a a beautiful setting. It was in a perfect location and very peaceful. Everyone had a brilliant time and I would love to stay there again!

“A wonderful experience from start to finish”
Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Fabulous villa and a wonderful friendly welcome from the owner Livia and the manager Nino. Would highly recommend a visit. The west part of Sicily is quieter than the more touristy east coast but still plenty to do.

We had an absolutely amazing stay in this wonderful villa. The owner Livia was most welcoming and could not have done more wugh her hospitality. We were a large group of 8 adults and 7 children ranging from 14 to 5 year old. We were greeting with warm smiles, helpful local information and the best local ice-cream around.. What a lovely surprise.

The villa is beautifully decorated both inside and out. The swimming pool was the perfect temperature being in full sun all day
We ate evening meals on an open outside terrace facing a magnifiscent fountain and swam everyday surrounded by beautiful statues and Palm trees
We were all in group agreement it is buy far the most beautiful villa we have stayed in

“Luxury Villa”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in October 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We rented this villa for the last week in October with my elderly parents and two families which included children between the ages of 9 and 17. The owner could not have been more helpful, from helping us book a car from the airport to providing charcoal for the BBQ, wood for the fire and a welcoming parcel of food. Nothing was too much trouble. The bedrooms were luxurious and we all had our own towelling bathrobe. Partanna is quite high up and as we were there at the end of October it was chilly in the morning and evenings and we weren't really able to dine outside and the table inside was quite small for 11 of us but the owners gave us wood and we lit fires. They also very generously heated the pool to a gorgeous 28 degrees so that we could swim even when the outside air was chilly.

The photos of the property really don't do it justice. Located in easy driving distance of all the sites worth visiting on the west of the island and with beautiful views.
Normally when a large group arrives there is a battle for the best room but here they are all on par.
Partanna is not the place to visit for bars and nightlife however with this villa you want to need to.
