Client Reviews of Oro Blu

See what our clients had to say about their holiday to Sicily and time at Oro Blu

 Lovely pool area 
Wonderful sea view 
Plenty of outdoor space

Ben M. - United Kingdom | July 2019

"The Villa Oro Blu was a stunning property with amazing views.  The multiple places to sit and relax and enjoy the surroundings was a real pleasure. The Villa owners were hugely helpful with everything you could wish for being supplied, as an example our Daughter had her birthday during our stay and the owner arranged an amazing personalized ice cream cake and then also delivered an incredible homemade Lasagna. On the website / customer service – very helpful, easy to book, good villa recommendation and great welcome booklet to give hints and tips for the local area. Will 100% be returning to Sicily."

Barbara W. - United Kingdom | June 2019

"We had such a wonderful week at Oro Blu! Your customer service both before and during our stay was fantastic. Also the villa pack you provided before we arrived with the interactive map and directions proved so useful. Oro Blu itself was a lovely villa. The views and the grounds are stunning and the pool so much bigger than the pictures!"

Valerie Milne - United Kingdom | September 2018

"We had a really lovely time at Oro Blu. The house is beautifully positioned for great views in every direction.  It is well designed with terraces facing every aspect so always easy to find a place to sit in sun or shade.  We were there for a month and the house, pool and garden were very well maintained in this time. I loved the garden which is full of scented herbs and exotic planting.  The owners were really lovely and brought us the most fantastic Sicilian home cooked food which we loved.We also loved the area which is very natural and beautiful ( not over developed for tourism which for us was perfect). If you want a 'tourist' place it's only a half hour drive to Cefalu where the highlight for me was climbing up to the castle for the best views ever.Good website and good advice - thank youSolo Sicily - very happy with the service and support.  "

Manda Hutchinson - United Kingdom | August 2018

"We have truly had an amazing week at Villa Oro Blu. The villa is amazing, so well designed and just like being “at home”. The pool, gardens and view are spectacular! Marzia, you have been so helpful in every way possible and having dinner cooked for us by your mum was the icing on the cake. Such as wonderful gesture. We will highly recommend your villa and hope to return in the future. Thank you for everything."

Nicole Voyat - Switzerland | July 2018

"Uns hat die Villa Oro Blu sehr gefallen, die Eigentümer waren sehr nett und immer erreichbar sowie hilfsbereit. Alles zu unserer Zufriedenheit. Die Agentur SoloSicily über die wir gebucht haben, hat mich sehr überzeugt."

Arthur Aidala - United States | July 2018

"A beautiful villa. A beautiful location. A beautiful poo. But and even more beautiful family! The hosts of a villa can make your comfortable or uneasy. This family – especially the twins – welcomed us with openness. And if you have Mamma Maria cook for you – it will be a special treat. We are leaving now and are so sad but we are confident that we will return. It was a beautiful birthday week!  "

Elisabeth Godfrey - United Kingdom | June 2018

"We thought both were excellent. The videos and photos really showed what the villa was like and gave great details. All contact whether by email or phone was helpful, friendly and very efficient. The information pack sent just before we travelled was really useful. The villa was fantastic and we couldn't have been made more welcome by Marzia and her family. The setting was stunning with mountains to the back and sea view to the front and it would have been easy never to leave but just sit by the pool and look at the views all day. The villa was very well equipped and very comfortable. We really liked all the different outdoor seating areas and the way everyone could have their own space. We felt extremely well looked after, from delicious food on arrival to a full meal prepared by Antonella towards the end of the week. We also loved Sicily and found everyone very friendly, tolerating my attempts at Italian. I did a short course to learn some basics and it helped a lot. All in all it was an excellent holiday and we will definitely recommend Solo Sicily and Oro Blu to our friends and family."

Dag Heydecker - Germany | October 2017

"Me and my wife enjoyed our holidays in your nice house. The days went by so quickly and we love to stay here. We made trips to Cefalù and Taormina, beautiful places."

Sonia Booth - United Kingdom | October 2017

"Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and welcome you gave us, not to forget the perfect lunch from your mother, which was delicious! We really enjoyed the comfort of your beautiful house and the refreshing pool, which is kept in a good condition. We made a lot of trips to Palermo, Cefalu, Agrigento and Madonie. All of them were amazing, but the one which “blew our mind” was Monreale – one of the most remarkable buildings I've ever seen! We used the kitchen a lot and cooking here and having a barbecue was almost as comfortable that at home – it is really well equipped, thank you! We will definitely recommend your place, which really was wonderful. Thank you so much!"

Sara Fraser - United Kingdom | September 2017

"Thank you for a very relaxing stay at the beautiful villa Oro Blu. We have enjoyed the peace and pool at the villa, and travelled around also visiting Cefalù – a very beautiful city and cathedral and Palermo marina where our son's yacht was for a few days (working skipper!). We have had a brilliant time and the family who own the villa are so helpful and welcoming!"

Sally Hedges - United Kingdom | September 2017

"We have had an awesome holiday. Thank you for the great lasagne and all the other goodies. I loved the pool! The house is brilliant and really well equipped with everything we needed. Thank you so much!"

Ian Walker - United Kingdom | August 2017

"Fabulous time at the villa. Thank you. Lovely pool and grounds. We really enjoyed chilling by the pool. The dinner provided by the owner and the breakfast croissants upon leaving were a lovely touch. We hae really enjoyed Sicily."

Sarah Turner - United Kingdom | August 2017

"I cannot fault the service provided by Solosicily and would not hesitate to recommend you. The 'Welcome Basket' and other goodies were the most generous we have ever had at a rental property and meant that we did not have the stress of finding a supermarket until the next day.   The house itself was entirely comfortable with plenty of space and as I say, the pool and gardens were gorgeous! The views are spectacular and with the wall to wall sunshine,  I'm afraid we did very little all week but relax in and around the pool. Many thanks for a fabulous week."

Erika Trinka - Austria | August 2017

"Wir haben unseren Sizilienaufenthalt sehr genossen. Das Haus war wunderbar, hat die Beschreibungen sogar noch übertroffen. Es war alles sehr sauber und gepflegt, die Küche war grossartig ausgestattet, die Einrichtung sehr liebevoll. Die Eigentümer sind ausgesprochen nett und zuvorkommend. Auch für unsere Kinder war es ein tolles Erlebnis."

Marius Lengkeek - Canada | July 2017

"We really enjoyed the villa. The view is amazing. We spent time in the pool everyday and really enjoyed it. The dinner provided by the owner was great and gave us time to enjoy our friends. Thank you so much!"

Eileen Coan - United Kingdom | July 2017

"The villa was lovely and Antonella and family were very welcoming and brought us a lovely meal.  Great care was paid to the amenities and everything was beautifully clean and well-maintained .  Fabulous pool. Thoroughly recommend. The responses from Gabriella and Edith were prompt and very helpful and we would certainly recommend your company and your help in booking the properties. Thank you again for your help and we may certainly be looking to use you again in the future."

Nina Werner - Germania | June 2017

"Thank you for caring about us during our holidays. You are all so nice and cordial. The house and the pool are wonderful and we enjoyed spending our holidays at Oro Blu. Also many thanks for the delivered dinner/lunch. It was soooo delicious. In summary we had a wonderful time. We will come back to Oro Blu! Thank you for everything and best wishes to you all."

Pinkie Eliston - United Kingdom | April 2017

"We've had the most relaxing and tranquil holiday in this very peaceful place. Thank you for your warm welcome and delicious food."

Barb Nugent - United States | April 2017

"I found SoloSicily excellent in every regard….your website, your customer service and your trip information/directions.   Both Zahara and Oro Blu were perfect and we enjoyed them both immensely. I would not hesitate to recommend your company and both villas.   Thank you for a wonderful experience in sunny Sicily!!  "

Dmitry Livanov - Russia | October 2016

"Thank you very much for warm hospitality in Sicily. It was a wonderful vacation period at your beautiful villa. Grazie  "

Petra Maschke - Germany | September 2016

"Thank you for caring about us during our holidays. You are all so nice and amazing. The house is wonderful and we enjoyed the pool every day. Our son spent most of the time in the pool and did not want to go to the sea. He said “pool is much more better than the sea.” The dinner you delivered us was so delicious. The best we ever had, said our son. The lasagne was the best ever! Thank you so much for all what you have done for us and we're made to feel very welcome every day. We will come back. Oro Blu is awesome! Thanks and best wishes!  "

Sarah Whale - United Kingdom | August 2016

"Thank you for your hospitality and for making our holiday so enjoyable. It was clear that our enjoyment was your principle concern. Very many thanks. We had a great holiday!  "

Rob McCormick - United States | August 2016

"Thank you for looking after us so well during our two week stay at Oro Blu. Your villa is absolutely beautiful, well looked after and well kitted our. A perfect base for exploring Sicily. Our three boys spent most of their time in the fantastic pool, and George finally learnt to swim without armbands. They had a great time chasing lizards and geckos in the garden too and exploring the rocky coves with their masks and snorkels. The pizzas at L'Olivios were a great hit as were the pasta dishes, although all were surpassed by the delicious home cooked lasagna you delivered to us. Amazing! Thank you so much for making our stay so easy. We felt well looked after and were made to feel very welcome. In fact everyone I met in Sicily has been very friendly and accepting of my pathetic attempts to speak Italian! Grazie mille!  "

Chris Miller - United Kingdom | July 2016

"Thank you so much for your very friendly welcome (and delicious welcome basket) to your lovely home. We really enjoyed our stay here – and the precious couple of hours of sunshine we had each day! It is a lovely spot. Thank you for being such good hosts and making us a tasty meal. We were here as an adult family so we had a great time here going around and about. Not to forget the local restaurant L'Ullivo – very friendly and great food! I am sure we will be back!    "

Sarah Miller - United Kingdom | July 2016

"We had a wonderful stay at Oro Blu. It was a lovely villa with everything we needed for our week. It is very well looked after by the owners who keep it all immaculate. We enjoyed all the different seating areas which let our group spread out and loved the views.. Marcia went the extra mile collecting us from the pick up point, ordering a taxi for us and arranging for her Mum to cook us a meal - all greatly appreciated."

Marco Di Modugno - Norway | July 2016

"Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at Villa Oro Blu. We have had a perfect stay for both grown ups and children. The house and scenery is beautiful and well-equipped. Marzia with family have been so generous, sweet and helpful. We have just finished a really wonderful meal cooked by Maria's mum. We have spent the week with slow days by the pool, great trips to Cefalu, Palermo, Mondello beach, Altavilla, the beach in Trabia and then Tivoli. We have enjoyed ourselves so much this week. Thank you and best wishes!"

Davina Gill - United Kingdom | July 2016

"We have had a wonderful week at Oro Blu and recharged our batteries in this oasis of peace and quiet, looking at the spectacular views and lazing by the wonderful pool. The villa itself is just perfect – with everything to hand that you could need and so immaculately presented. We wish we could stay longer! We could have wished for better hosts and will certainly be telling all who will listen to come visit. Thank you so much."

Damain Finn - Ireland | July 2016

"We had a wonderful week in Villa Oro Blu. The day we arrived we were greeted by Marzia's parents and they were so pleasant and proud of their villa that they really impressed us. There is no doubt about it that the villa is beautiful and well equipped. Marzia's mum made us a fabulous meal and we were really overwhelmed by her generosity. San Nicola and Cefalù were lovely to visit. Overall the week was relaxing, extremely pleasant and we would all give it 10 out of 10. Thank you so much!"

Martha Piazza - United States | June 2016

"Bella bella bella! You are wonderful hosts on a wonderful island! Your home is spectacular and your attention to detail in its furnishing went beyond what we ever anticipated. Mille grazie for everything, you are the greatest!"

Thomy L├╝thi - Switzerland | June 2016

"Wir hatten 14 wunderschöne Tage im Oro Blu. Sehr angenehme Temperaturen bis auf einen Tag (43 Grad). Auch der Service und das feine Mittagessen von Familie Ienna war köstlich."

Manuela Lang - Switzerland | October 2015

"Die Woche in Oro Blu hat uns super gut gefallen. Eine weitere Woche hätten wir uns vorstellen können. Ein schönes Haus und total nette Besitzer. Das Wetter war perfekt. Wir hatten einfach Glück. Abschalten uns genießen, dies war unser Ziel und wir sind auf unsere Kosten gekommen. Es hat alles wunderbar geklappt. Von Anfang an, bis zum Schluss. Marzia hat sich um uns bei der Übergabe gekümmert und sie und ihre Familie waren für uns permanent erreichbar und waren zur Stelle. Für mich war es ein wenig nach Hause kommen. Ich kenne diese fürsorgliche Art von meiner italienischer Familie. Auch Ihnen möchten wir danken. Wir haben uns gut und schnell beraten und bedient gefühlt. Wir haben genau das angetroffen, was wir auf den Bildern gesehen hatten. Die ausführliche Dokumentation und die vielen Tipps waren hilfreich. Wir werden SOLOSICILY weiter empfehlen und kommen sicher wieder."

Alison Born - United Kingdom | September 2015

"Hi, your service was generally excellent, we liked the Villa and the owners were very friendly and helpful."

Nesan Bandali - Canada | September 2015

"We came for one week and had a wonderful tome. The hosts were very welcoming. They had dinner made for us so the first day we didn't have to worry about finding a place to eat. Marzia's family also left a welcome basket which was much appreciated. We didn't have to worry about breakfast the next day and were able to go shopping at our leisure. The view is just exceptional and we enjoyed looking out to the ocean every morning. Thank you for making our visit so much fun! We all came to celebrate our 50th birthday and couldn't have been happier anywhere else!"

Angela Bilsby - United Kingdom | September 2015

"We were only here for one week but wish we'd stayed for two! The villa is in a lovely spot with fantastic outdoor space. We'll miss our lunchtime vistas. Antonella, Marzia and their family could not have been more warm and helpful. The meal that their mum prepared for us was just amazing – and would have fed three times as many of us. Thank you for making us so welcome"

Julia Rollinson - United Kingdom | August 2015

"We had a fantastic time at Oro Blu. The villa is a little piece of calm away from the hustle and bustle of the coast. We were warmly welcomed by a delicious lasagne and fresh bread amongst a vicious thunderstorm! Despite unusual weather for Sicily, we have had a very relaxing holiday. The villa is perfect. Thank you"

Karen Lipworth - United Kingdom | August 2015

"We can only echo the sentiments of your previous guests – wonderful to discover the charms of Sicily and this area. Especially Cefalù. It reminded us of holidays abroad back in te 1950s! We've been delighted and most grateful for all the care and friendliness generously given by Marzia and her enthusiastic family – and Oro Blu is the tranquil jewel in the crown. Many many thanks"

Elizabeth Gault - United Kingdom | August 2015

"We had a great holiday in Oro Blu. It is a lovely villa and the owners were very helpful (thanks to Marzia's mother and father for the lovely food). We enjoyed visiting Cefalù, Palermo and Caccamo. Caccamo castel is very interesting and has amazing views. I want to thank your team for making the booking process smooth running and easy. You were always very prompt with replies and information. Many thanks. Just sorry that our holiday is over!"

Tim Cummins - United Kingdom | July 2015

"We have had a wonderful holiday at Oro Blu, a magical place and perfectly tranquil. Highlights for us were a visit to Cefalù and a wonderful day out on a boat. Otherwise it was just fabulous to be tucked away and far from the madness of real life! So thank you for that opportunity and we hope to be back one day soon!"

Carla Whelton - United Kingdom | July 2015

"We had a lovely week at Oro Blu and wished to pass on our comments. The villa is immaculately presented with a lovely, good sized pool. The living space is sectioned off well, giving areas of shade, sun and views throughout the day. As a party of 7 we never felt crowded but completely at home in this lovely villa. Marzia and her family made us feel incredibly welcome, and supplied us with a delicious hot lunch! All in all, we felt this was by far the nicest villa we have had the pleasure to stay in. Thank you to soloSicily for your helpful and professional service."

Daniela Salvemini - United States | July 2015

"We have fallen in love with Sicily and especially your beautiful villa! It is truly perfect – everything we needed, so beautifully furnished and situated so wonderfully on the mountains. There is always a wonderful breeze. We cannot thank you enough and we hope to be back someday!"

Edward Hopcroft - United Kingdom | June 2015

"We really appreciated your support throughout the booking process and holiday. You were excellent and it made a big difference to our holiday and we would like to say a big thank you to you."

Tanja Harbauer - Germany | May 2015

"Ich muss wirklich ein großes Lob an ihre Agentur aussprechen. Von der Buchung bis zur Übergabe des Hauses bis zum Check out hat alles super toll geklappt. Ihr Internet Auftritt ist sehr ansprechend. Es ist alles sehr übersichtlich, besonders die kleine Karte von Sizilien - wo sich die jeweilige Villa befindet finde ich sehr hilfreich. Es gibt viele sehr schöne ansprechende Bilder die auch naturgetreu sind, zumindest kann ich das für die Villa Oro Blu sagen. Die Buchung selbst per Telefon hat wunderbar geklappt und dank ihrer hilfreichen Informationen hatten wir die richtige Villa für uns schnell entschieden. Das Haus selbst ist wie auf den Fotos beschrieben wunderschön mit einer spektakulären Aussicht. Der Empfang durch Antonella der Hausbesitzerin war sehr Gastfreundschaftlich und wir haben ein ausgesprochen reichhaltiges Willkommenspaket erhalten. Das Haus war sauber und ordentlich und auch der Pool beanstandungsfrei. Vielleicht könnte ein bisschen mehr Geschirr vorrätig sein. Ein besonderer Dank gilt Marzias Mama die uns mit köstlichen sizilianischen Gerichten verwöhnt hat. Alles in allem ein gelungene Woche Urlaub in Sizilien, wir werden sie auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen."

Karim Atabaki - United Kingdom | May 2015

"Our stay was fine – the villa was great, the hosts were amazingly friendly and kind. As for the SoloSicily element, everything was perfect and well organised, so thank you for all your help."

Karsten Muehe - Germany | September 2014

"Als erstes ein großes Lob und Dank für Ihren Service. Ich habe mich seit dem ersten Call von Ihnen super betreut gefühlt. Deswegen war mich auch klar, dass die was-muss-ich-essen-bevor-die-welt-untergeht-challange natürlich von Ihnen gemeistert wird. Danke für die Tipps, noch ein paar Tage länger und Allitalia hätte Übergewicht berechnet. Gut, dass wenigstens der Fisch leicht war. Oro Blu war von der ersten Minute an sehr schön. Toll war der kleine Rescue-Basket mit Essen. Sowas ist schön und kam gut an. Die Tour von Marco war wirklich ganz großes Kino. Marco ist wirklich lässig und hat ein gutes Gefühl für unsere Gruppe gehabt und sich darauf eingelassen. Alle inkl. Eltern hatten viel Spaß."

Alison Rothkopf - United Kingdom | September 2014

"Firstly thank you for your prompt and invaluable assistance. Knowing no Italian and nothing about Sicily, we needed your help and felt we were in excellent hands. Marzia and her family were also keen to help us, as were all the shopkeepers and other Sicilians we encountered. As a tourist we felt very welcome. Oro Blu was exactly what we had hoped it would be from the website - attractively furnished and well designed with great views and large pool. Everything was clean and in good order. Marzia speaks good English and is very proud of the standard of accommodation her villa provides for her guests. The position of the villa meant it was very quiet and we drove everywhere using satnav.  We enjoyed easy excursions into Cefalu and Bagheria and longer days driving to Enna and Mt Etna. It was fascinating and relaxing and we hope to return to see the rest of the island. We thoroughly recommend Oro Blu for its comfort and position and Solosicily for being an indispensable guide to making the most of a first visit. The website was well designed and reflected the high standard of service we received from Solosicily and Oro Blu owners."

Francesca Perez - United Kingdom | August 2014

"We had a wedding in Cefalù so we decided to treat ourselves with a week holiday and a soloSicily villa...and what a treat!!! We only had one day of rain and the rest were warm and sunny so we made the most of eating outside (albeit with jumpers on) so that we could make the most of the incredible views. Perhaps as it is slightly off-season, it was extremely quiet and peaceful. The villa was cosy and warm and close to lots of sights. We really had a super duper holiday! And...Sicilian weddings are amazing!"

Jane Freedman - United States | August 2014

"The villa Oro Blu was wonderful and perfect for our needs. A very nice and comfortable villa. Well located for travel around Sicily. The owners were lovely and so incredibly helpful and friendly and welcoming. SoloSicily was also incredibly helpful and welcoming. We highly recommend both for future trips!"

Martin Munz - Germany | July 2014

"Oro Blu is a gem. The house, the garden and the pool are meticulously maintained and serviced. The house would serve six adults and three kids, however we enjoyed having the space for our five person family. The view is great, the pool is spacious. Everything was working well and in perfect condition. We enjoyed the owner family's hospitality who provided us with advice and even with a food starter kit. Of course, one needs a car. The next shops are at little San Nicola L'Arena (two supermarkets, two bakeries, a green shop, some small shops, a pharmacy, a nice harbor, great ice cream and a good open air bar at the harbor, a good restaurant), 7 km or an 8 minutes' drive from the house. The next (and only nearby) restaurant (with the music) is five minutes by foot. Just twenty something minutes away from Palermo, thirty-five minutes from Cefalu by car. We warmly recommend Oro Blu."

Trinny Gracias - United Kingdom | July 2014

"Superb villa! Exceeded all our expectations!"

Ali Odom - United Kingom | June 2014

"The villa was great. The website and soloSicily staff gave accurate descriptions of the villa and we were fully aware of the passing train."

Lyndsey Wheems - United Kingdom | May 2014

"We loved our holiday. The house and pool are fantastic. We were also happy with the soloSicily service."
