Großzügige Wohnung mit atemberaubendem Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist recht groß und angemessen ausgestattet. Das Highlight ist der große Balkon, auf dem man besonders am Abend mit einem Glas Wein die herrliche Aussicht genießen kann. Die Anfahrt mit dem PKW ist -besonders beim ersten Mal- etwas spektakulär, deshalb empfiehlt es sich, sich von Gianca am vereinbarten Treffpunkt abholen zu lassen. Der nächste nette Ort mit Piazza, Restaurants usw. ist Terrasini. Erreichbar mit dem PKW in ca. 15 Min. Gianca ist sehr nett und gibt viele Tips für Ausflüge.

We hebben genoten!

  • 5 of 5

Wat een heerlijk huis met een fantastisch uitzicht! Lekker groot, comfortabel en huiselijk ingericht, maar natuurlijk zaten we het meeste op het terras met het mooie uitzicht. En in tegenstelling tot heel veel andere vakantiehuizen in dit huis heel veel informatie over de omgeving, met folders en kaarten maar ook door de eigenaar Gianca, die heel enthousiast is, goed Engels spreekt en met wie we leuke contacten hadden. En met la mamma konden we ons beetje Italiaans oefenen! Het was een mooie week met uitstapjes naar Palermo, Monreale, Segesta, mooie autotochten langs de kust maar ook door het binnenland, genieten van het uitzicht (heel vroeg opstaan om de zonsopgang mee te maken!)...het was een heerlijke week, grazie mille Gianca e la mamma per tutto!

"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.
