Beautiful place by the beach

5 of 5
This is a beautiful place to spend a week. The location on the beach is fabulous, the cottage is really well equipped and the owners are extremely helpful. Franco's son, Claudio, gave us a tour of the area, for a very reasonable fee and it was a great way to see the region and learn more about it. There is some traffic noise from the road but it is not intrusive or very noticeable most of the time. Can thoroughly recommend this place 😀

Well situated and comfortable villa.

5 of 5
This is a villa with character and is well situated for visiting Agrigento and further afield. Although on a busy road, it is well set back and is surprisingly quiet. There are supermarkets within walking distance. The shaded seating area in the garden and the pool are delightful. The villa itself is well equipped and comfortable. Only one bedroom has air conditioning but a fan in the other is helpful. All windows have excellent incorporated mosquito nets. We were given a most generous and thoughtful welcome pack and Alphonso and his daughter couldn't have been more helpful. We really enjoyed looking through the facsimile book of historical pictures too.
