James S. - United Kingdom | August 2019

" Third time dealing with soloSicily and they were fantastic  yet again. I really wouldn’t book with anyone else because the villas are quality assured and I don’t worry about access to help of any sort should we ever unfortunately need it. Palummara is an unbelievable villa where the view is only appreciated in person. It is spacious and well looked after, in addition it is close to some stunning beaches. Will definitely be back!"

Timothy Calnin - Hong Kong | August 2018

"It is hard to express in words just how wonderful the whole experience was, from the moment I found the soloSicily website through to the unforgettable experience of staying at Palummara. The process of choosing a villa was made so effortless by the helpful and responsive soloSicily team and every interaction which I had with soloSicily was highly professional and perfectly timely. On arrival, because of the incredible beauty of the villa, we almost cancelled all of our tourism plans in order to spend as much time as possible in this stunningly beautiful place. Every aspect of Palummara was superb. The design of the villa is perfect to a relaxing holiday and the pool is set in beautiful surroundings. There are so many charming outdoor areas to dine, or read, or have breakfast, I fear that we didn’t manage to make use of them all. And the view, of course, is breathtaking.All in all, our experience was utterly perfect and I am immensely grateful to soloSicily for one of the best holiday experiences of my life!"

Andrew B. - United Kingdom | August 2018

"Thank you soloSicily for helping us find this villa. It was exactly what we wanted. Everything was great, from the amazing views to the comfortable interiors. We would live to come back some day to revisit this special place."

Caroel Mueller - Switzerland | July 2018

"Sehr gutes Kundenservice mit freundlichem und zuvorkommenden Personal. Solo sicily hat alle unsere Anfragen sehr schnell beantwortet und die Reise ist sehr gut verlaufen. Das Haus Palumara ist, auch wenn nicht ganz günstig, einfach super. Das Haus ist grosszügig, geschmackvoll und mit Liebe eingerichtet. Die grosse Terrasse lädt zum verweilen ein. Die Sundowners sind atemberaubend und auch der gatren wir von Paolo sehr sorgfältig unterhalten. Die Innendekoration des Hauses ist sehr angenehm, man fühlt sich sofort zu hause."

Emily B. - United Kingdom | July 2018

"We completely and utterly fell in love with those views! It was difficult to say what we loved more. The comfy house, the amazing food or the fantastic local wine. Top marks for everything. There wasn't one bit of the holiday we would have changed."

Frank K. - United Kingdom | July 2018

"The whole family got together for this holiday for the first time in several years. Our two children and their partners and us. Thank you for everything. The photos don't do justice to the sea views and we had a lot of fun relaxing and eating and drinking too much good wine. We're already planning another similar holiday for next year!"

Tanja Bortis - Switzerland | June 2018

"Ich möchte Ihnen gerne mitteilen, dass wir soooo schöne Ferien im Palumara hatten. Alles war genial und alles sah genau so aus wie auf den Fotos Ihrer Webseite.  Auch die Hausvermieter war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die supergepflegte Umgebung waren wunderschön. Der Pool immer sauber und schön warm. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Auch in der Küche, wir hatten einfach alles. Der Service ihrerseits ist super und sehr sehr nett. Alles ist super und ich empfehle Ihre Homepage weiter.  Wir sind am überlegen, ob wir nächstes Jahr wieder nach Sizilien kommen möchten.  Danke für alles, ihr seid eine sehr seriöse und zuvorkommende Firma."

Bill Selwyn - United Kingdom | September 2017

"We hope you love your stay at Palummara as much as we did. Do make sure to visit Bovo Marina beach to enjoy the quiet beach and great restaurants. Best wishes and enjoy this unspoilt part of Sicily."

Stella Hartley - United Kingdom | July 2017

"Absolutely wonderful villa! Beautiful views and very well equipped!"

Antonella Burgio - Australia | July 2017

"Thank you we loved our stay and such a beautiful villa."

Hans Brandli - Switzerland | April 2017

"The week we spent at Palummara has passed way too quickly! We have definitey utilized all the perks the house has to offer. Be it the grill, the pizza oven or the pool. During our stay we have come to enjoy a stunning view with amazing sunsets and sunrises. The house's interior was decorated with loving care which makes you feel at home from the first minute you take a step inside. All the best."

Carol Fraser - United Kingdom | September 2016

"This is a villa that is the most wonderful place to spend a holiday, we came home so relaxed. The views were incredible from both terraces, it was a joy to get in the morning  and look out over countryside and sea. Inside the villa it was cool and very comfortable either relaxing in the lounge or sleeping in the tasteful bedrooms. Both inside and out there are so many  wonderful  pieces of art, from paintings,  decorated tiles and painted stones and pebbles. Even after being there ten days we were discovering something new in the garden. The swimming pool is large and kept very clean by Paulo who also tends the garden with care that shows. Palms, colourful flowers and trees for shade. Your customer service team were the best we have ever used from the initial booking right through to the end of our holiday. They were always very helpful when I phoned to inquire about something and sent us details of where we could find a shop open as we arrived on a Sunday when most things are shut. Booking a holiday with your company results in a trouble free experience with the very best of help. We will always remember the beauty of Palummara, a big thank you to you all including Rosamaria and Paulo."

Eberhand von Hodenberg - Germany | September 2015

"Thank you for wonderful days in a beautiful house. We enjoyed the landscape, the fantastic view and also the pool."

Luda Semenova - United States | September 2015

"I loved SoloSicily's customer service. Emanuela was so patient while we went back and forth with our short list) and diverse villa collection, so we will definitely be back, as we go to Sicily every year. This was our first time to Southwestern Sicily, which differs quite a bit from the Northeastern Sicily/Taormina area we normally go to; we found the location for exploring that side of the island ideal as it gives you good proximity to both Agrigento as well as Sciacca; plus numerous beaches along the coastline to explore. Directions to the villa were great. There was lovely welcome basket with some food and fruit and water bottles waiting for us. We have been to many properties, but never have seen such attention to detail and very unique and true to Sicily decor - loved the villa! Terrace was absolutely spectacular for breakfasts and dinners and courtyard table worked so well for lunch when it was too hot on the terrace; we didn't even use outside BBQ area as kitchen was spectacular for me, having every single gadget and pot and pan an experienced cook would want - first time I have seen such great kitchen with so much attention to detail. Air conditioning worked well. Villa is absolutely perfect for a mid to large size company, the pool was great, but there are several beaches within 10-15 min drive, our favorite was Bovo Marina, which had several lovely restaurants and was very clean compared to some other ones. Wild beach at Torre Salsa Reserve, though, harder to get to, was unique and serene, but you need an umbrella. We would highly recommend the villa to anybody who is looking for unique property with spectacular view and sunsets."

Isabelle Stainier - Belgium | August 2015

"The house was great, very nice location, quiet, house very comfortable with a wonderful terasse and view. We also really enjoyed the pool. We had excellent support from Emanuella (soloSicily) during all our conversation. In conclusion we are very happy about this week and we would recommend this villa without any hesitation."

Giles Heilpern - United Kingdom | August 2015

"We had a great week. Incredible setting and views. House lovely and well equipped. Beautiful beach in the nature reserve."

Clemes Weiss - Germany | August 2015

"We had a wonderful week in Palummara."

Robert Chris Walker - United Kingdom | July 2015

"Most amazing and LUXURIOUS villa we have ever stayed in. Love it! Had a great time in the pool and enjoyed watching the spectacular view. Amazing. Lots of archaeology and pool time. Definitely coming back soon. A marvellous house for a week in the heat of July. Paolo and Rosamaria were a tremendous help. The fruit Paolo provided was some of the best I have tasted."

L. Draper - United Kingdom | July 2015

"We loved every minute of our holiday. Having travelled around Italy and the main cities it was nice to step back and spend time in Sicily – still fairly untouched by tourism. It really felt like we were experiencing 'authentic' Sicily which is exactly what we were after. Grazie!"

Melissa Attipoe - Germany | June 2015

"So much fun and great memories we have taken home from our time at Palummara. We were very sad to leave but we made the most of it. Our children had fun in the sea and in the pools. We relaxed, read books and spent happy family times together. Thank you soloSicily"

Jacqui Vanz - France | June 2015

"The house and pool was very nice. Beautiful!"

Grant Millard - United Kingdom | May 2015

"The villa is beautiful. Super holiday!"

Elizabeth Miller - United Kingdom | September 2014

"We loved the terrace and BBQ area. Cooked up a storm with fresh fish and prawns we bought from Sciacca! We got a little bit lost finding our way to the villa but a quick call to soloSicily and we were back on track. Lovely warm welcome when we arrived. Everything was excellent. Great views and very relaxing for everyone."

Matteo Tannen - United Kingdom | September 2014

"Thanks soloSicily..we had a fantastic time and the villa was great for a family of 5. Lots of outside space for the children and the pool was lovely. My wife and I never got tired of looking out across the countryside and the fact we rarely ate out for dinner and nothing compared to sitting on our terrace. Really good proximity to Agrigento, Sciacca and the beaches of Eraclea. We want to come back!!!"

Tim Davies - United Kingdom | August 2014

"The villa is in an outstanding location and the views are beautiful. My family had a great time and managed to squeeze in a lot of sights, beaches and pool time. We were very impressed with soloSicily and how everything was organised."

Marie Hayes - United Kingdom | August 2014

"I would like to give some feedback. I recently visited Sicily for the first time and had a wonderful time. The people were outstandingly friendly even though we spoke no Italian and most of them very little English. Between our pigeon French and spanish we managed to communicate everything we needed to and they helped in every way they could. The tourist sites we visited - The valley of the temples and the Villa were magnificent and far better than expected (there would have been waiting lists to see them in this country ). The local beaches were idyllic and the fresh produce made for some great meals. Some of the meals in the restaurants could be hit and miss but on the whole we had some good meals. The villa Palumarra I am very tempted to try and put people off as we would love to keep it for ourselves and are already planning our next years trip. Even though it would be quite a distance to travel to the other tourist sites on the other side of the island we would prefer to stay here again and travel to see them. The pictures on the website looked lovely and was the reason we booked it but they did not do it justice, it was even better than the pictures. So much so that we ate in quite a few nights because finding a restaurant with a better setting was difficult to beat. Instead of the unusual facilities which are provided for rental it had everything a fully equipped home would need and more. The sunsets from the terrace were amazing, the pool was blissful and Rosamaria and her husband were so helpful. Although we did get told off for not eating enough of the grapes from the vines. They were so much better than those from M & S and to eat them freshly picked was fantastic. Our fruit bowl was full every day with the grapes, figs, and plums along with all the herbs from the garden as well. It was the first time we had travelled with Solo Sicily and were very impressed by their attentiveness . The booking was easy, the directions with pictures easy to follow with follow up call when we arrived to see everything was alright and we had arrived safely. I would definitely use them again. All in all I wish I was still there."

Jason Corvacho - United States | July 2014

"A very interesting location. Quiet and peaceful but enough to keep us occupied on the days that we were not lazing by the pool. The Torre Salsa Reserve was really special and Sciacca was very nice for a fish lunch. Enjoyed not being surrounded by too many tourists. We found soloSicily to be an efficient and friendly company."

Fredrik Eriksson - Sweden | July 2014

"I would like to say thanks to Solosicily for handling everything extremely well. One day we had a grassfire around the house and your team gave us very quick feedback. We really appriciated that. Some comments regarding Palummara: Great house with stunning view and we really liked it. We where 8 and that is no problem being that many. RosaMaria (and her husband) are just fantastic. I will definitively recommend SoloSicily for friends."

Greg Riley - United Kingdom | June 2014

"It was an amazing holiday with our friends our family. The location was excellent and we were able to really appreciate and enjoy south-west Sicily."
