Review 5630: Solosicily, Amaltea


Review by Frank Allen from NY

2bed/1bath cottage near Pozzallo, Sicily


July 2013, 1 week


Pozzallo is a lovely little village right on the sea. It is beautiful, quiet and relaxing. The property of the villa we stayed in was very private with the sea in the back yard. I loved the area.

Nearby Amenities

You must drive to grocery stores and restaurants, all within 10 minutes.

The House/Apartment

My family and I were able to get a lot of peaceful rest and relaxation in. The garden was a favorite place to read and also to have lunch. The beach touches the villa property; it was perfect. The villa itself was well cared for. The master bedroom was very comfortable and the kids had a lot of fun with the bunk-beds in their room. The villa is all on the ground floor, the kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom was perfect. It was a small villa, but exactly what we needed, lots of privacy, no other rentals around.


No pool, big private garden with palm trees leading to the beach.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The weather was great, we spent all our time outside. There is no real living room but there is a nice sofa in the kitchen. The house was very well-equipped, everything was clean. No complaints.


We new there was only one bathroom before we rented it, which is perfect for our family. Rooms were perfect exactly as they are pictured on the website.

Problems or Bonuses

The beach was empty! I couldn't believe it, no one was there besides us on most days.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The driving directions Solosicily, the agency, provided us with were top-notch. Once we called their on site person about a restaurant, they made the reservation for us. We spoke with a mother tounge English speaker, thankfully since our Italian is non-existent.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
