The house was very impressive, set on a steep hill surrounded by olive trees, with views over the Mediterranean from all 3 terraces. It is a spacious well equipped house with 3 double bedrooms & 3 bathrooms & is continuing to be improved. The outside space is stunning , with a newly landscaped driveway . Each of the terraces looks out to sea with it’s ever changing shades of blue & allows you to watch the fishing boats & expensive pleasure craft going in & out of the harbour. Sitting under the Carob tree on the terrace to the side of the house is particularly beautiful at night thanks to the extensive lighting system. There is also a second well equipped kitchen on the terrace for barbecues & outside cooking - it wasn’t quite warm enough for this in early May this year.
Licata is a hilly town & the house is on the outskirts so although it is possible to walk down to the beach & into town via the beach it’s very steep & you need stamina - we did so several times but a car is really essential.
We were very warmly welcomed by Melinda & Pepe & they drove into town & the supermarket with us in convoy to show us the way which was extremely helpful and were available throughout our stay had we needed them.
A great house for relaxing in the sunshine with all essential shopping facilities in Licata - we arrived at the weekend of the annual festival of their patron saint so the town was buzzing. It’s also very convenient for visiting Agrigento & the amazing Valley of the Temples which is definitely worth a visit.
We stayed for three nights but would loved to have stayed longer. Unfortunately we had to get to out next place.
The villa was clean and tidy and had just about everything we needed. We didn't travel too far since we loved the ocean view and sat on the patio a good bit of the time. Not all the properties have washing machines but this one did. It would have been nice to have had a toaster available but this would be my only negative comment.
