Ideal solution for two couples

  • 5 of 5

Customer service is great. Light touch management with a warm welcome from Livia and her husband. Sunday arrival and departure not a problem. Restaurants are open Sunday evening, as are the shops. Communication prompt and accurate.

Property description accurate. Light, airy, clean and two streets above the centre of Noto.

For two couples travelling together this is the ideal solution. Livia has two adjacent apartments which have a communal entry. We rented both concurrently for a week. Everything you need for self catering is to hand. Everything works.

We would happily return for more and will recommend to friends.

"The house is very big and confortable, with everything you need to cook and clean. We never had problems with parking the car nearby, and Noto has the best cafe' in the area (5 min. walking from the house)! It was very silent during the night, as it is located in the upper town, and quite fresh despite the very hot summer. The owner is very nice and friendly."

Une excellente adresse a Noto

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué les deux appartements, un pour nous et l'autre pour les enfants. Ils sont reliés et on peut faire ne sorte qu'une seule porte donne

sur les deux appartements, comme s'il était d'un seul tenant. Les enfants ont apprécie de pouvoir disposer d'un endroit nuit pour eux, plus a l’écart.

Nous avons vraiment apprécié le logement, les hauts plafonds, le volume, la vue sur Noto, et le confort.

La maison se trouve au centre de Noto, entre le tres beau quartier baroque du bas, plus touristique, et un quartier que nous avons trouvé plus

authentique, avec ses petits commerces (boulangerie, pâtisserie, poissonnerie, épicerie …) ou nous avions nos habitudes. Nous y avons rencontre

des commerçants très sympathiques.

Nous n'avons pas utilise le garage, ce n’était pas la peine. Notre voiture est restée garée juste en bas de l'appartement, sans problème de place.

La propriétaire s'est montrée très efficaces lors de la réservation, et très disponible.

Sehr zu empfehlen...

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unsere Tage in dieser Wohnung sehr genossen und konnten uns hier sehr gut erholen. Durch die gute zentrale Lage ist man überall sehr schnell. Die Wohnung ist schön eingerichtet, sehr geräumig und sauber und gut ausgestattet, es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Zudem ist Livia eine sehr herzliche Gastgeberin und stets um alles bemüht, wir wurden sogar mit einer Flasche Wein und Süssigkeiten empfangen. In allen Bereichen eine sehr angenehme Unterkunft.
