About the property

The little house ' Il Frassino ' is completely independent where you can enjoy a particular privacy. All around there is the green of the country; in ancient times it was a cellar of wines. The open spaces in front of the house is a good place for relaxing under the trees listening to the chirping of birds. The house is not far from the little town of Castelbuono and from there you can easily go for excursions in the mountains, discovering natural beauties. There is a bedroom with a T. V. set a living. Room with a kitchen and a divan bed a bathroom. There is a private parking and if you have pets there is a garden for them.

Bellissima !

  • 5 of 5

Vincenzo fait de son mieux pour que tout se passe bien, et c'est le cas... disponibilité, convivialité... tout un programme !

Sur les hauteurs de Castelbuono, la maison est entourée par la végétation, offrant une vue magnifique sur la Madonie, notamment depuis la superbe piscine parfaitement entretenue. La maison est propre et bien équipée, on déjeune facilement dehors sur la terrasse. Castelbuono a beaucoup de charme, c'est un plaisir.

A recommander sans réserve.

magnificent !!!

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week in house Frassino with 2 children (4 and 6 years old) and we absolutely loved it.

Although the house is not very big, it has all the required necessities. The rooms and 2 bathrooms were bright and cleaned.

There is an outside terrace with table, chairs and sofa chairs. The swimming pool is reached by a stair. It was big and very clean. The view from up here was magnificent.

Castelbuono and its medieval town is not far from Palermo and many touristic places.

The host is very friendly and helpfull. He even gave us some delicious tomatoes from his own garden. I would definitely return.

All you need!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for three nights, but we wished we could have stayed longer. Overall, this place is one of my favourites on Sicily. Located near Castelbuono and the beautiful surroundings of le Madonie, this place is perfect for those who want to enjoy the real Sicily. Nature, culture, sports, gastronomy, etc.. Plenty of things to do and see. (Do make sure you have your own car!)

The apartment was perfect for us: everything was clean, the owner made sure everything was impecable. You have your own terrace here, so you surely have your privacy. Upstairs is a swimming pool which you share with a few other guests. Air conditioning is possible, but if you want to use it you have to pay an extra fee. Although we stayed here in the midst of July, we didn't need it: at night it was cool enough to sleep well.

Overall, we really liked staying here and we would definitely recommend this place to our friends and all other travelers who like to stay in a green and quiet little paradise rather than in a touristy city.
