Beautiful large villa, very peaceful. Great base to explore.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a secluded area. It's spacious, very well equipped with lovely views and gardens. It's a great base as it's only a 45 mins journey from Palermo airport and there's free off-street parking in Bagheria which means you can travel by train to Palermo or Agrigenta very easily. You will definitely need a car to explore but the local beach at the bottom of the hill is actually pretty good, again with free parking if you can find it. There's a good restaurant / takeaway a mile from the house and a good restaurant by the church in the local village of St Nicola. We went to Cefalu a few times which is one of the tourist spots. If you want to go to Mount Etna or the other side of Island then I'd recommend booking an overnight otherwise it's a very long day!

Pier Giorgio was very caring, helpful and welcoming - but without being intrusive.

We really loved the outside areas of this property where you could have total privacy. I have no hesitation in recommending (and I'm not usually easy to please!).

Very relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for just 7 days; the holiday let was very clean and comfortable, with only a 5 minute drive to a small beach and a supermarket and a few restaurants by the quay.

The owner was very accommodating and pleasant and was very helpful! The owner really helped by providing us with some fans on the unusually very warm evenings and we were very grateful.

We had everything we needed for a 7 day stay!

Owner's Response: Mrs Natasha told me that the reasons for the 4 stars score were: - the absence of the internet wifi (If you choose a house without the internet wifi, whose cost is, therefore, lower, it is a bit bizarre complaining for its absence, isn't it?) - bed linen and towels not included in the price (Considering that the price of the house is fixed, not related to the number of renters from 1 to 4, it would be unfair to add to the price the cost of four sets of bed sheets and towels, when the renters may be three or two, or only one. They could also bring their stuff, as the Italian renters can easily do. So, in my opinion, the correct solution is not adding the cost of bed linen and towels to the price, but getting an amount linked to the actual requests.

Beautiful secluded villa, plenty of space, peace and quiet plus a good base to explore.

  • 5 of 5

On arriving at the villa, you are amazed by the views of the mountains behind and the sea to the front. Beautiful tended gardens and only a 45 mins journey from Palermo airport. You will definitely need a car to explore but the local beach at the bottom of the hill is actually pretty good safe for kids little bit of snorkeling and sandy beach. Our other favourite beach was mazzaforno just before cefalu. Pier Giorgio and family were wonderfully welcoming and we enjoyed a couple of lovely chats over drinks. The Villa is well equipped (the washing machine was very handy) and although there is no air conditioning pier Giorgio supplied us with fans during the surprising heat wave!! The location is fab if you want to experience the real side of Sicily and get away from the touristy bits. The nice thing is you don't get ripped off with tourist prices and as long as you avoid ferragosto you can get around with out too many people around!! Highly recommended we thank you for your hospitality.

Une magnifique maison dans un jardin de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très belle semaine dans cette magnifique demeure.

La partie locative, en rez de jardin est très spacieuse. Il s'y trouve tout le confort souhaitable, et la décoration, sobre, est faite avec goût. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la grande terrasse ombragée, sans vis-à-vis, avec vue sur la montagne, sur un peu du bleu de la mer, sur les fleurs, les arbres fruitiers et les arbustes, figuier, prunier citronnier, sur le carré d'herbes aromatiques, sur les terrasses potagères...avec le chant des grillons qui bercent la quiétude du lieu.

Pier Giorgio et Floriana sont des hôtes chaleureux, serviables, qui savent aussi se montrer discrets. Pier Giorgio parle très bien le français et connait très bien la Sicile. Ce qui est appréciable.

Du haut de ses presque 80 ans, de par son expérience des plantes, Salvatore, le jardinier, amène dans ce lieu toute sa poésie.

Les plages de Trabia et San Nicola l'arena se trouvent à cinq minutes de voiture. Familiales et tranquilles, elles offrent un vrai plaisir de baignade dans une eau chaude et transparente. Palerme est à vingt, vingt cinq minutes de voiture sur une voie rapide qui permet de contempler la beauté de la région.

C'est une ville qui offre une richesse de styles architecturaux très variée. Les Palermitains et les siciliens en général, sont accueillant envers les touristes et vous aident à vous faire comprendre quand vous ne maitrisez pas bien l'italien, comme dans notre cas.

Nous vous recommandons vivement cette région pleine de bons produits, et riche de découvertes. Et bien sûr, cette location dans laquelle nous avons passée une très belle semaine.

Sehr erholsamer Urlaub in wunderbarer Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei wunderbare erholsame Urlaubswochen in der sehr schönen und geräumigen Ferienwohnung verbracht. Die Ferienwohnung befindet sich im Erdgeschoss, der Eigentümer nutzt die obere Wohnung nur wenige Wochen im Jahr selbst. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig in einem sehr schönen gepflegten Garten. Zum Einkaufen, Bummeln, Essen gehen sind es nur wenige Minuten ins nahegelegene San Nicola l'Arena. Insgesamt ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um die Nordküste zu erkunden.

Pier Giorgio ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Obwohl nicht vor Ort, war er jederzeit per whatsapp für uns erreichbar und hat uns mit vielen wertvollen Tipps den Urlaub verschönt.

Da wir außerhalb der Saison waren, konnten wir die nahegelegenen Strandbäder leider nicht mehr nutzen. Wir haben daher unsere Ausflüge nach Céfalu, Castellammare di Golfo (traumhafter Sandstrand!) und anderen Städten auch immer zu einem Strandbesuch genutzt.

Wir können die Ferienwohnung uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen und bedanken uns noch einmal sehr herzlich bei Pier Giorgio! Gerne kommen wir wieder!
