"Prachtig uitzicht" is nog een understatement!

  • 5 of 5

Als je hier eenmaal binnenstapt wil je gelijk al niet meer weg. Fantastische locatie met uitzicht over een hele mooie vallei en de zee. Alles aanwezig om het je naar de zin te maken. En ook een enorme plus; de gastheer Gianca een ongelooflijk aardige man, komt je de eerste keer ophalen omdat het niet makkelijk te vinden is. Daarom ook een heerlijk rustige locatie. Hij runt ook een toeristisch bureau en weet je dan ook feilloos de beste plekken en mooiste plaatsen aan te bevelen. En die zijn er volop! Niet twijfelen, maar gewoon boeken! Bedankt Gianca voor een heerlijke week!

Großzügige Ferienwohnung, fabelhafter Blick

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt auf 200 m Höhe mit einem phantastischen Panoramablick. Alles ist individuell freundlich und komfortabel eingerichtet. Auch ein Parkplatz unmittelbar vor dem Haus ist garantiert. Leicht beschwerlich ist die Anfahrt über steile Serpentinen. Dieser Aufwand wird mit dem Ausblick belohnt. Das Treffen zur Führung zur Wohnung und zur Schlüsselübergabe erfolgte problemlos.

La baie de Carini à ses pieds

  • 5 of 5

Tout d'abord c'est une vue splendide depuis les terrasses de ce vaste appartement sur la baie de Carini qui reste en mémoire. Le soleil qui se lève sur un petit déjeuner et au loin la mer qui scintille de mille éclats. Le soir venu ce sont les montagnes qui s'enflamment sous le soleil couchant, et au loin l'Isola delle Femine qui baigne dans une lumière ocre. Les bruits de la vie qui s'organise dans la baie montent comme une mélodie sans pour autant être désagréables.

La nuit à La Montagnola se déroule sans bruit et le repos y est appréciable.

La maison est vaste et donne envie de s'y prélasser, mais en même temps la proximité de sites à visiter appelle à redescendre de La Montagnola: Carini, Palerme, Monreale, Segeste, Erice, Trapani, les îles Egade, Castellamare del Golfo, Terrasini etc... Une belle petite plage à Cinisi offre le plaisir de goûter à l'eau d'une mer chaude, accueillante et propre.

Enfin il ne faut pas oublier l'accueil offert par Giancarmine, qui vient vous chercher à la sortie de l'autoroute, pour vous conduire par une petite route sinueuse qui grimpe sur la montagne. Il fait tout son possible pour rendre le séjour agréable, conseille volontiers mais reste discret et disponible.

On ne peut qu'aimer La Montagnola.

Location avec vue imprenable et très bien située

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable dans cet appartement situé au dernier étage d'une belle villa surplombant la baie de Carini. La vue est époustouflante! Gianca se plie an quatre pour que votre séjour se passe dans les meilleures conditions possibles. De plus, la situation de la location permet d'acceder aux nombreux sites du Nord Ouest de l'île... que Gianca se fait un plaisir de vous énumérer. Une location a recommander vivement.

soggiorno presso la montagnola

  • 5 of 5

"L''alloggio è conforme a quanto descritto anche se personalmente un po troppo ripida è la strada per arrivarci per una famiglia che ogni giorno deve far su e giu per andare in spiaggia. La pulizia all''ingresso è ottima,l''accoglienza anche. Le attrezzature sono un pò vecchiotte, ma per una casa vacanza possono andare, unica nota dolente della nostra vacanza la promessa della pulizia a metà soggiorno che non ci è stata."
