A fine house in a stunning location

5 of 5
The house is as good as advertised. Even in winter the scenery is special. Spacious, with glorious views of the sea in front and mountain behind, well clear of other properties. The parade of sheep and goats twice daily are an extra delight. The owner warned us before we booked that it could be cold and advised how to get the best out of the heating. Despite preoccupation with parents serious illness he took care to ensure we were happy with house and facilities. A great winter break with much better weather than England and no crowds at tourist venues.

Excellent location, helpful owner

5 of 5
We spent there September 2016. The apartment is light, space full and well located. Just around the corner there are the best Sicilian pizzeria Calvine, local shops and main pedestrian street. The owners Biagio and Francesca are very nice and were very helpful with any question we had. Many thanks for really good days we had at yours!
