JOEL W. (BOTH VILLAS 07/06 - 12/06/2023)
"Amazing historic villa with unbeatable hosts + Amazing hosts (assisted with all our needs, including chef, boats and taxis), incredible house (perfect for large groups), stunning views, peaceful location but close to ammenities in Trapani. Can't wait to be back. - Loved everything. Perfect trip!"
DONNA C. (DIMORA STORICA 12/06 - 18/06/2023)
"Nothing short of amazing The castle was everything and more than described. The host was amazing in communication, even before the trip, asking if we had any questions or would like her to set up some tours. We set up a personal chef to come cook and teach us how to make pasta one night, it was amazing! They have a room with conveniences to purchase if you forgot something, at very reasonable prices as well as drinks and food. The garden was so large and amazing to walk thru, you can tell the c"
STEVEN E. (DIMORA STORICA 27.05 - 3.06.2023
"Family trip to Sicily This was a delightful place to stay. We were so happy that we selected this listing. Property manager could not have been better…she communicated punctually and clearly at every step…from pre-visit help with reservations as well as tour, beach and restaurant suggestions…and even after check out with finding my missing phone within 10 minutes of departure! The property is charming and very spacious. We had 2 couples, a nanny, another adult and a:20 month old and never felt "
STEPHEN G. (DIMORA STORICA 29-15 MAY 2023)
"A Wonderful Two Week Vacation The property is exactly as stated in the description. The house is comfortable and we’ll equipped. It’s obvious that the owners have a great pride in the manor that’s been owned by their family for generations. The greatest asset of the rental are the two sisters who couldn’t have been more accommodating. Francesca is a wonderful hostess who responded quickly to our every inquiry, recommended places to destinations, restaurants, etc. Her sister Christina was also v"
CRISTELLE M. (VILLA DEL CUSTODE 6-16 JULY 2021)
"Superbe Très belle villa dans un beau parc, notre coup de cœur parmi nos locations en Sicile. Nous avons été vraiment bien accueillis par Francesca. Ses conseils avant et durant notre séjour, sa gentillesse, la petite surprise à notre arrivée dans le congélateur. Vraiment c'était top. Une adresse à conserver, une villa plus grande est à louer juste à côté, c'est bon à savoir si nous revenons plus nombreux."
MARIANNE LONER (VILLA DEL CUSTODE 17-24 JULY 2022)
"A perfect stay at a classic villa We loved the entire stay: the house, the grounds, the pool as well as the tips and care offered by Francesca. It is a quiet location and well equipped for cooking. We could see the sunset on the rock at San Vito Lo Capo from the property. Beaches were all within a 30 minute drive. And, Francesca was very resourceful and even helped us resolve a medical problem! In short, we couldn’t have wished for a better week in Trapani, Sicily."
GIOVANNI D'ALEO (DIMORA STORICA MARCH 2021)
"Incantevole location La vista dalla terrazza è davvero mozzafiato! Ottimo giudizio sullo staff gentile e disponibile."
PR VAN DER BROEK (DIMORA STORICA 24-30 JUL 2021)
"A beautiful little castle Our stay with extended family was excellent. Four very nice bedrooms ( we didn’t use the 5th one) a kitchen, a living room, a dining room and a terrace with a view makes it a very spacious house. The garden including the swimming pool was very nice as well. A small drive to the beach or other nearby sites. In short a very very good holiday destination."
CALOGERO P. (VILLA DEL CUSTODE 19-23 MAR 2022)
"Villa splendida per un piacevole weekend di relax Come quasi tutti gli anni, io e mia moglie siamo tornati a trascorrere un weekend primaverile in questa splendida villa. Che dire, il paesaggio ed il giardino non ci deludono mai, e neanche l'ospitalità delle proprietarie. Quest'anno una piacevole sorpresa: la casa è stata ammodernata ulteriormente con nuovi impianti di riscaldamento e rinfrescamento e con un restyling delle aspetto esterno in piena coerenza con il contesto tipico siciliano ot"
PAUL WINTER (VILLA DEL CUSTODE 21-28 AUG 2022)
"Lovely Villa in a Great Location Great communication meant a smooth arrival, an easy hour or so drive from Palermo airport to a friendly welcome. The villa is comfortable, well appointed and spotlessly clean, the pool was wonderful. In a great location, with easy access to Erice and the coast, and several excellent restaurants. We have no hesitation in recommending Villa Fontana for a relaxing holiday."
CHRISTINE V. D. W. (CASA DEL CUSTODE 1-8 OCT 2022)
"Komfortable Villa in ruhiger Umgebung Wunderschöne, restaurierte alte Villa am Hang, umgeben von einem botanischen Garten, Zitrus-u. Kakibäumen und einem Olivenhain. Ruhige, abgeschiedene Lage, schöner Pool (nur für Schwimmer! Wassertiefe 1,7 m). Interessante Ausflugsziele in der Nähe: Erice, die Salinen von Trapani und das Naturschutzgebiet Zingalo. Nette Vermieterin."
TANIA DUBUIS (VILLA DEL CUSTODE 4-7 SEPT 2022)
"Beautiful tranquil villa with a view We absolutely adored our stay at the villa. The pool was perfect and the views all around were spectacular. Francesca was a fantastic host, giving us great suggestions for nearby restaurants, activities, things to see etc. she was also readily available for any questions. We loved our stay and hope to come back!"
GIUSEPPE TAGLIAVIA (SOGGIORNO 26-29 AGOSTO 2021)
"Accoglienza perfetta! Antica ed affascinante dimora siciliana, con inclusi elementi di fascino unico (parte di una antica torre di avvistamento), ampi spazi con arredamento d’epoca. Giardino -meglio dire parco- curatissimo e pulito. Piscina con vista mozzafiato. Se ciò non fosse sufficiente, a tutto questo incanto, si aggiunge una accoglienza e disponibilità delle proprietarie che va ben oltre la “cortesia e solerzia”. Sempre discrete ma disponibili anche per le più piccole cose, accolgono gl"
PATTY MARTINO (STAY 25 MAY 4 JUNE 2022)
"Wonderful Stay! This is a gorgeous property, and very spacious for our group of 4 couples. The grounds are like something out of a movie! Francesca, the owner, was extremely responsive to any questions before the trip and always available via text while we were there, but never intrusive. She even dropped off some delicious gelato treats while we were there, and has wine available to purchase, which was a bonus for us the night we arrived! You need a car at this location to visit the many nea"
FRANCESCO MELLINO (STAY 3-5 AUGUST 2022)
"Charming Villa, ideal for friends and family holidays We all loved staying at the Dimora Storica. The villa is incredibly charming and is very comfortable for largeish groups of family and friends that still may like some privacy. The hosts, Francesca and Cristina, were kind and very flexible and understanding regarding checking in and out and they also provided some really helpful tips along the way."
GARET HIVES (STAY AUG 7 – AUG 13, 2022)
"wow you really do get to stay in a castle with the most amazing private pool! Francesca was the perfect host and nothing was too much for her to help us with. Her communication ahead of the trip was really useful to get all the questions and worries out of your head. Totally fantastic place, very highly recommended."
LESLEY ALCOCK (STAY SEP 3 – SEP 10, 2022)
"Gorgeous holiday in the Sicilian Sun Our host Francesca has been incredible, nothing was too much for her and I cannot recommend her and her beautiful property enough! Francesca worked really hard to make sure we had a fantastic week, organising our trips and restaurants, she was amazing. The house is beautiful, really spacious with many varied inside and outside areas. It is truly a grand old house, steeped in history. The pool area was fantastic and we also loved the outside terraces and barb"
