Like its near-by sister villa, Conchiglie, villa Orca enjoys breathtaking views of the green valley and countryside down to the sea and is located in the hills just behind Scopello and close to the bustling seaside resort of Casellammare del Golfo.
Light and airy bedrooms and living accommodation with modern furnishings and modern conveniences such as air conditioning, plasma screen tv and a fitted kitchen ensure that all that is required for a relaxing, Sicilian holiday is included.
Its the swimming pool and gardens that are the highlight however with those far reaching views enjoyable from the cool waters of the pool itself or from the delightful shade of the dining terrace.
There are a couple of restaurants and bars in nearby Scopello and a much wider selection in Castellammare del Golfo, just 10 minutes away by car. Several small coves are also close by as is the Natural Reserve of Zingarro and the Tonnara di Scopello, where the local fishermen processed their vast catches of Tuna fish, caught off the shore.
As a personal touch the owner leaves a selection of local wines at a reasonable cost payable locally per bottle.

The view is absolutely amazing/stunning and rivals some of the other attractions of Sicily. Villa was clean and well equipped. There is a quota of electricity for which you pay extra if you go over the limit. We would have gone over the quota if we had used the air conditioning. However, we found we didn't need the air conditioning. Feel slightly unfair giving the pool a 3 as we knew it was small but the pump did break down.

Kent Family (the eldest child is at school)
We stayed in Villa Orca as a family of 2 adults and 3 kids (11,13 & 15). The villa is spacious, well equipped, the views amazing and it is relatively close to Scopello.
The nearest supermarket is approximately 5km away.
The Villa's wifi was good, the pool small but did the trick.
The sights in the area were brilliant - as are the beaches !
