The apartment was truly Sicilian with its furnishings and wonderful fresco. The host, Valeria , was lovely and went to great lenghs to make sure we were comfortable. The views from the balcony are stunning. Be sure to see a sunrise. Literally a stones throw from the piazza with a selection of friendly bars and restaurants. Very few touristswhich was lovely. You felt very much part of the community. Overall, a beautiful apartment with a lovely host in a part of the real Sicily.
After an initial hiccup in following the directions, the Q8 filling station referred to as the waypoint to look for before turning off the main road is no longer there resulting in a lengthy delay, we eventually landed up in the rather bleak looking piazza of Borgo Bonsignoro which was totally deserted and relieved only by a friendly pizzeria, there we were met and taken to the villa by the owners mother and her friend, neither of whom spoke any English, however the friend spoke good German and as my wife is German there was not a communication problem.
The villa is a compact two bedroom design with a large kitchen the major feature being the verandah which is covered and open on two sides, marvellous for meals, relaxing etc. The views are superb. It is surrounded by an interesting garden with many different types of cactus etc and the whole area is secured by a lockable sliding gate.
We were unfortunate with the weather, it rained for three days and was windy every day, this didn't detract from our enjoyment of the holiday though and we managed to visit Agrigento, Marsala etc which is well worth the effort. We did visit the long sandy beach, the weather prevented any swimming but it is clear that on a calm day the beach would be a major attraction.
