We have just returned from two weeks in Villa Palmento. From the moment we made the enquiry with Denis the whole experience has been amazing.
We have rented holiday homes all around the world for over 30 years and the customer service delivered by Denis and his team was the best we ever experienced.
Everything in the Villa was perfect. All the furniture and appliances are new. The bedrooms are perfect as are the 3 bathrooms .
The garden , terraces and pool are all out of this world and perfectly maintained .
It is a heavenly place , 10/15 mins drive to beaches that go on forever and I visited a different one most mornings.
The beautiful town of Scicli is less than 10 mins drive away with it’s wonderful buildings and plenty of amazing restaurants to suit all tastes. The location of the Villa is ideal for visiting many of the sites in Sicily and we visited Taormina , Ragusa, Noto, Syracuse and Punta Secca ( little gem to visit at sunset).
We enjoyed our trips . But were more than happy to spend the days sitting by the pool during the day and chilling on the terraces in the evenings.
The food in the area is amazing and I recommend everyone to avail of the Sicilian welcome meal which can be delivered to the Villa .
Denis and his team could not have been more helpful. There were some minor technical glitches that occurred during our stay and Denis immediately responded to resolve them in a professional and courteous manner. He even paid for dinner for us in an amazing restaurant Pinsere in Scicli as a gesture which was totally unnecessary but really enjoyable .
I recommend trying as many of the local Scicili restaurants as you can . We took the recommendations from Denis and they were all perfect .
Denis went above and beyond to help make our vacation the best it could be . He even sourced the best bus for my brother to travel to Catania airport from Scicli.
The little cafes in Sampieri and Cave D’Aglia are perfect for morning coffee , granita and a brioche . You will be dining with the locals who are the friendliest people we have ever met .
Everyone we met during our visit in Sicily were friendly and while very few people spoke English they all made an effort to accommodate us.
I would love to keep Villa Palmento a secret but it would not be fair. Denis and his team have put a huge effort into the villas and we can’t wait to return .
Thank you to Denis and the team. You have created something special which visitors are going to love .
