William Price - UK | October 2018


"We had the most wonderful time and cannot thank you and Michele enough.  Michele was a marvelous and very generous and helpful host and we felt thoroughly well-looked after by him throughout our stay.  He really went the extra mile to help us.  The house was very comfortable and the garden, with its fruit trees and olive trees, was an absolute delight.  We loved our holiday and very much hope to return. I was very impressed by your customer service and we felt in good hands throughout the process and the website was very user-friendly."

Cynthia Sinclair - Hong Kong | July 2018


"We had a fantastic stay at the La Foresteria di Badia. The property is very clean and well maintained. We love the beautiful garden and the nice small pool to be able to cool off during hot days. The spacious yard is excellent to sit around and enjoy a bottle of wine in the evening before dinner. We love it and will highly recommend for those who wants to rent this property."

Ophelia Hunt - Germany | September 2017


"Thank you Solo Sicily for everything. We wanted somewhere quiet and out of the way and La Foresteria di Badia was just right! The villa was an oasis of calm and our week there left us feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. A wonderful holiday, full of fantastic memories."

Alex Davies - United Kingdom | September 2017


"What a privilege to stay in this villa. The gardens were so beautiful and we were filled with a sense of relaxation and well-being. You helped us no end with our choice of villa and we really appreciated the extra help with our bags when we arrived. We've already told all our friends about the villa and about solosicily."

Bella Nesbit - Australia | August 2017


"The perfect villa for a great holiday in Sicily. We spent most of our time in the incredible garden, but found some energy after big bowls of pasta to go exploring. Our favourite place was Erice."

Clive Stewart - United Kingdom | August 2017


"We can't recommend this villa enough. It was so beautiful! The Sicilian countryside surrounding us was beautiful too and we felt so far removed from our lives at home. We thoroughly relaxed and ate outside every day. We wish we could have stayed longer."

Sven Hansen - Switzerland | July 2017


"Website, service and documentation of the house were very good. House and house also very nice."

Walter West - United States | March 2017


"Thank you for a great time in Sicily! We really enjoyed our holiday for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Our hosts, were very gracious and helpful since we don't speak Italian very well. But we learned a lot during our week here. The soloSicily rep, Emanuela, was also very helpful with our trip.  "

Jess White - Ireland | August 2016


"The villa was so cosy and was perfect for me, my husband and out daughter. We had plenty of space and there was everything we could need. We ventured out to see the sights on several days. The driving was an experience! But all in all a superb break away from it all, especially visiting the Egadi islands for the day!"

Simon Kens - United Kingdom | July 2016


"Everything is better when the sun shines, and it shone without a pause throughout our holiday at this lovely villa. We felt so relaxed! We slept so well and lounging in the garden was heavenly. We'd love to come back, maybe next year. We'll be in touch."

Pamela Baldwin - United Kingdom | June 2016


"We had a great holiday in Sicily. The area where we stayed provided a variety of places to visit - all of which were worthwhile adn we enjoyed the fact that it was off the tourist trail. The villa was very tastefully done out "Sicillian style" and the owner was very flexible, for example about our late arrival and check out times. The phone call from yourselves when we didn't arrive on time was also very helpful. The directions were very easy to follow. We would definately like to return to Sicily at some point - there is a lot more to explore."

Lucinda Murray - United Kingdom | May 2016


"Everything was spotless when we arrived and we felt right at home straight away. We loved the countryside and the garden was so gorgeous. Thoroughly recommended for a family!"

Mike Blake - United Kingdom | April 2016


"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Foresteria di Badia. It was a very comfortable villa and Michele was a charming host. The location was ideal - peaceful and tranquil and yet just a few minutes from Marsala which is a lovely town and an ideal base for exploring the west of the Island.  Many thanks to you and the team at Solo Sicily for you efficiency and attentiveness throughout - much appreciated."

Joan Williams - United States | September 2015


"Very beautiful and traditional little property on a magnificent estate. Can't complain at all. So much to do and see in West Sicily and we have some lovely memories to take home with us...snorkelling in the waters of Lo Zingaro, eating fresh fish, our evening strolls through Marsala and stumbling upon a music event in the main square, lots of ice cream and discovering granita! Full marks to soloSicily!"

M. Sembritzki - United States | September 2015


"Thanks for a wonderful stay in your beautiful house. We enjoyed the time so much and look forward to seeing you again!"

Jackson Family - United Kingdom | August 2015


"We have had a lovely week in La Foresteria, enjoying the beautiful house and scorching weather. The West of Sicily has been refreshingly different..we have enjoyed islands, beaches..taking the cable car up to Erice...and a seaside promenade and dinner in Trapani."

O'Doherty Family - Ireland | August 2015


"A perfect tranquil location and tastefully decorated villa led to a wonderful stay in Marsala and the surrounding regions. Memorable trips include visiting Erice by cable car, Segesta and many lovely beaches. Thanks to a charming and welcoming host, Michele. We would certainly recommend to family and friends."

Nicola Coyle - Ireland | July 2015


"We really enjoyed our stay in Western Sicily. The beaches are sandy and plentiful and the water is safe and warm. We experienced lots of great places including Erice, St. Vito lo Capo and Selinunte as well as the beautiful Egadi islands. Our stay in the stylish and authentic La Foresteria Di Badia was really comfortable and our hosts were kind and generous with their care and attention as well as their help and advice. We would heartily recommend it for couples or families with older children."

Newton Family - United Kingdom | June 2015


"We have had such a lovely stay here and would thoroughly recommend it to our friends and family. The western part of Sicily is delightful – we particularly enjoyed our trips to Erice, Segesta, the island of Mrettimo and spend a lovely day on a pebbly beach in the nature reserve at San Vito lo Capo (though rather a long drive to get there). We also enjoyed seeing Marsala itself, enjoying is civilised, unspoilt atmosphere which is not dominated by tourism. The house is perfect and we very much appreciated the care with which it has been prepared for guests. Finally, we would like to thank Michele and his family for being such kind and thoughtful hosts."

Koopman Family - Netherlands | May 2015


"We really enjoyed our stay here! Especially the beautiful garden with oranges, lemons and olives. It was nice to hear about the history of La Badia and the la Sala family. We thank you for your hospitality."

Jasmine Chanan - United Kingdom | April 2015


"Never disappointed with Italy and this time Sicily. Magical place – house and grounds are enchanting where we felt really at home and used every day to explore the surrounding area. We especially liked Mozia and have read the history of it. Thank you for your kindliness and hospitality"

Dianna Neal - United Kingdom | September 2014


"We really enjoyed our stay at Badia, Marsala and Sicily. The house is lovely . What i imagine a Sicilian house to be like. The area is great for old ruins and lots of ancient history. Thank you very much for such a lovely stay. Best wishes"

Michael P. Gimblett - United Kingdom | September 2014


"We have had a wonderful stay. The house is charming and full of character. It has been an excellent place from which to visit and explore various parts of Sicily. The gardens are beautiful and provide a real barrier from the rushing outside world in which one can relax. Driving was an interesting experience and I have learnt a number of new manoeuvres that I didn't know existed. The only problem we encountered was in hiring the car as it wasn't apparent that the rental company was quite a distance from the airport. Apart from that it was a holiday that will live long in the memory."

Joseph Mayhugh - United Kingdom | August 2014


"Foresteria was pretty much perfect for my wife and I. Beautiful gardens, location was excellent and both soloSicily and the owners very helpful. Great value for money too."

Zuzana Rakcaniova - Slovakia | July 2014


"We would like to thank you for a wonderful stay here. We saw lots of beautiful things, ate fantastic food, had relaxing sleeps and enjoyed a perfect holiday. Thank you very much for your kind hospitality in your casa. We spent a very relaxing time here. With our kindest regards"

Mercedes Moorhouse - United States | June 2014


"Thanks again soloSicily for all you did to make our holiday easy and enjoyable. Staying in Sicily and Foresteria was an unforgettable experience. My friends are keen to book next year!"

James Jones - United Kingdom | May 2014


"We have had a wonderful holiday here. The house is in a beautiful setting and is perfect for a relaxing stay. We have enjoyed the delicious oranges and exploring the garden and spotting lizards. The house is charming and has provided a perfect base from which to explore western Sicily. Thank you for your kind hospitality."

Diana Marcovitch - United Kingdom | April 2014


"We had a lovely time in Sicily! We particularly liked the villa and the people who owned it (they were very friendly and helpful). They even invited us into their lovely house for a drink. We loved Erice but we suggest that anyone planning to visit should go to Trapani and use the funicular rather than that long winding drive upwards. And warn motorists - the Sicilians are WILD drivers! Best to keep of the motorways.... We intend to go back sometime; in fact we will probably return to Marsala."
