Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Villa Mama in August 2014. We were a part of a party of 5 adults and 5 boys between the ages of 3 –7 years! We spent a couple of nights in Palermo ( Mango Pizzeria was fantastic) and then drove to the villa. On arrival we were greeted by the owners with a wonderful selection of fresh melon, figs, strawberries and grapes picked from their land. The large villa was amazing and perfect for a group of our size. The children and adults all loved the glorious swimming pool and in the rest of the villa there was everything we needed there for all of us. The rooms were clean, spacious and very well laid out. A car is essential in this location I would say – especially if you want to make the most of the amazing coves scattered along the coast. Our favourite spot was in Scopella! Fantastic for snorkelling. Thank-you for a great holiday!"

average rating of 4.8 based on 6 reviews

Villa Mamma is a lovely rural retreat. Not too far from shops and restaurants.

  • 4 of 5

The villa is lovely, Renato left us a whole box full of freshly picked produce on our first day, he also came occasionally with some freshly laid eggs. The pool is a great size for swimming and ball games. The kitchen was fully kitted out with plenty of everything you need to cook and eat here. We used the BBQ and the wood burning pizza oven, which was a really great way to cook. The grass surrounding the pool area was cool to walk on a hot day, the breezes came across the valley which helped to keep the 30+ degree temps reasonable. We all had a great week and the only minor complaint is that the beds were a bit firm for our liking. Aircon in all rooms was a big bonus and the villa is full of character surrounded by farmland and mountains with beautiful and panoramic views from the pool area. Our thanks to Francesca and Renato

Spacious, well constructed & very clean

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this property with my wife and four children. The house is immaculate and it's a very quiet area, only 5 minutes from town. Pool was great and they cleaned it every day. I am definitely going back here.

Villa Mamma : An amazing oasis

  • 5 of 5

This house is the most beautiful property we have ever stayed in.

The photographs do not do the house justice! It is so much more beautiful in real life. In particular, the living area is much bigger. I would highly recommend Villa Mamma for a group of friends or family travelling together. There is space to hang out together, but also to get away from each other!

The house had the perfect configuration for our group (4 couples, one single person and 4 kids) with 6 bedrooms.

And the warm welcome from Francesca and Renato, made us feel like we were visiting friends.

The house is just a dream. And everything was supplied: dishwasher tablets, washing powder, toilet roll, and a load of food to start us off: tea, coffee, meat , bread , fruit, wine and beer.....The bbq and pizza oven in the garden made eating at home a pleasure. And there were fresh beans and peas from the garden. And fresh herbs from the garden that could be thrown into salads.

The location of the house , about 5k outside Alcamo, means a car is essential, and an assertive driving style helps! The location means that you can go to Alcamo for an authentic Italian country town vibe (we highly recommend Algatopardo restaurant in Alcamo) , or to Castellare del Golfo (about 15k) for a more touristy atmosphere. And it was the perfect base for travelling a bit further a field.

We were in Villa Mamma for the first week of May, and a week was not enough to see all of the sights that we would have liked to see.

The personal touch provided by Francesca and Renato really added to the experience, and the advice that gave us about what to see and do, was invaluable.

Overall, a brilliant property , run to an extremely high standard by the very attentive Francesca.

We stayed at Villa Mamma with 5 children last year and it was absolutely AMAZING. I am just trying to book another few weeks for 2016 in Sicily which prompted me to write this late review. We want to try another side of the island otherwise we would definitely stay again. It was a perfect, fantastic villa, brilliant pool and wonderfully tranquil location. We explored so many parts of the island from this location with no problems. Highly recommend.

Best Property We've Ever Rented

  • 5 of 5

We've rented properties all over the world for 25 years, and Villa Mamma was, without a doubt, the best house we've ever stayed in. The house and pool were immaculately presented, the location superb and tranquil, and the kitchen incredibly well equipped. Add in the wood fired pizza oven, the huge built-in barbecue and some added surprises that we won't spoil here, we would love to return and would be happy to recommend the house and the area to anyone.

Francesca and Renato were incredibly welcoming and helpful, and Francesca speaks very good English.

Alcamo is within easy reach and is itself a lovely town.

We needn't have gone any further if we hadn't wanted too, but within an hour of Alcomo are a range of the most amazing places and beaches to visit. All of this within 40 minutes of Palermo airport. If you're thinking of visiting Sicily, then you'll be hard pushed to beat Villa Mamma.
