About Annick Le Jan

Giorgio, the owner is a architect and live in the principal house, Annick, his partner is french and live in Palermo for years.

Annick Le Jan purchased this house in 1984

Why Annick Le Jan chose Palermo

We want to meet persons who lives in other part of the world and want to help them to pass good moments in Sicily.

For Annick it's a pleasure to turn to speak french ant to practise english. Giorgio like a lot spanish and portuguese, and german too.

Why to rend it? Because we dressed up it alone and we don't want to see it empty! And it will be easier for us to continue to maintain the garden and the swimming pool.

What makes this house unique

Separate house in a private garden (2500m) and private swimming pool of 15m x 6m.

House in an interesting place near the sea, the town and the airport.

Clean and private with a lovely pool

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed our stay for a week. We didn’t hire a car so getting around was a challenge but we soon mastered the bus timetable. It takes two buses to Palermo and Mondello and takes about an hour. To enjoy cafes restaurants and other facilities you really need a car because there is nothing within walking distance other than a small supermarket. However Annick was very helpful and picked us up and dropped us off at the airport.

The perfect honeymoon in Sicily

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived home from what we can only describe as a perfect honeymoon in Sicily. The poolhouse cottage provided the perfect location and base for our 12 night stay.

We arrived to an extremely friendly welcome from the owner Annick who was preparaing the cottage for our stay. Annick armed us with useful information on where to visit and eat, buses and transport across the area. Annick is very friendly and made herself on-hand to answer questions we may have over text message if required.

The cottage itself is perfect for a couple giving plenty of space. The kitchen is well equipped and there's even a BBQ to cook outdoors.

The bathroom is modern and the bedroom spacious. The aircon is ideal in the hot temperatures.

During our stay there were people staying in the main house for the first 5 days so were sharing the pool. We hardly saw them during this time so it made no difference to us and we still had privacy. For the last week of our holiday we had the grounds to ourselves which was even better, so we enjoyed numerous lazy days by the pool. This was so relaxing and enjoyable. We made friends with a little cat that was forever exploring the beautiful gardens and fruit trees.

The location is fantastic with both the beach and city well connected by public transport. We used the buses regularly to go to Mondello, SanLorenzo and city centre. You just need to remember to purchase tickets for the newsstand as they're not sold on the bus themselves. With the cottage are two bikes which we used one day however the roads are so crazy so we didn't dare go out on them again. Be careful if you do.

There's lots to do in the city, we enjoyed a boat trip, historic and street food tour. We visited the cathedral and palace as well.

There are lots of places in Mondello to eat, but we enjoyed SanLorenzo Mercado, a place called Guesto near the mercado and cappuccino and breakfast pastries at Gardenia just down the road from the accommodation. The gelato (ice creams) were amazing and there were bars offering them on every corner. When you visit you must try one in a brioche bun!! Incredible.

Where the cottage was located seemed very much non-touristy and more residential which made it even better as everyone was a 'local' apart from us. This was just what we were after.

We could not have wished for a better honeymoon. Thank you Annick for all your help during our stay.

Wonderful week in beautiful Sicily!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for just over a week before going to Rome. Loved everything about the place,it was very well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed lazy days by the huge pool enjoying the sun and cycling down to the beach in Mondello. Palermo was very close and easy to get to and loved exploring it. We hope to come back soon, thankyou Giorgio and Annick :)
