“Thank you so much for the wonderful stay at your villa it was perfect, the house was well appointed and very spacious for the 6 of us. The terrace was beautiful, large and airy, overlooking the sea and cliffs, we watched the sun go down over the sea every night which was so spectacular. Great location walking distance from the beach. The air conditioner was not very good, but all the rooms had fans. Jessica, who we dealt with was delightful and very helpful, she answered any queries really quickly and was very switched on. We hope to return, thank you.”

“A wonderfull villa, with a refreshing pool and only five minutes walk from the sea. The villa has lots of privacy, is clean and spacious (a huge cellar with two bedrooms, bathroom, extra kitchen) and we enjoyed the bbq and pizza oven.”

Mama Silvia is a lovely, if somewhat quirky, villa in the village of Cornino near Custonaci. The Villa sits at the back of a group of Villas at the north end of the village about 400 mtrs from the beach and about 1km from the village centre. Although there are other villas between it and the sea you get a superb view of the sea and surrounding area , the view from the Veranda and Pool area is definitely a highlight of this villa as the views are stunning. The villa is laid out as if it were two, two bedroom apartments with a kitchen/diner/lounge area, two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor and then the same in the basement. We didn’t use the kitchen in the basement other than to use its dishwasher (as there isn’t one on the ground floor). Another slightly strange layout feature is that the washing machine is in the ground floor bathroom. The quality of internal fitments was good although the kitchen was a little dated, it was well specified with gas oven and hob, fridge freezer, microwave and toaster. There was a good selection of pots and pans although we could have done with a few more large drinking classes and cups. The swimming pool is lovely, a really good size and cleaned regularly. There is a good selection of loungers and umbrellas around the pool. There is an external shower and separate toilet area next to the pool. Note that air conditioning is only available in the communal lounge, kitchen, diner. There are only fans in the bedrooms. There are 2 veranda areas, one at the front and one at the back. The large veranda at the back of the villa has a large dining table, a bench swing and other separate seating and table. The view over the ocean, the hill village of Erice and Mount Cofano is magnificent. There is also a separate area with a granite built pizza oven and barbeque, which was great for al-fresco cooking and dining. This area also has its own separate shower and toilet. Service from the owner and their agent was general very good although a change of towels and bedding at the end of the first week of our 2 week stay had to be chased (2 days late). I would highly recommend this villa.

This is a very nice house, with pool, garden and terrace. The house is much bigger than we expected. We had a great time, the house was a perfect place to celebrate my dad’s 70th birthday. As we are climbers, the location was perfect because we could walk to Never Sleeping Wall in 5 minutes. We also went for hikes in the National Park, visited Erice, Trapani, San Vito lo Capo which all are a short drive away.

Giovanni and his brother were very helpful in arranging the visit. They also helped adjust the sleeping arrangements to accomodate us. We had a great stay in Cornino and would greatly recommend the Villa. A beautiful holiday.
