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.

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.

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 :)

A conseiller absolument pour visiter Palerme et sa région !!

  • 5 of 5

Un lieu idéal ( hors centre ville tout en étant à proximité), dans une dépendance bien agencée, agréable et fonctionnelle située dans un bel environnement paysager ( piscine en sus). S'agissant des propriétaires Annick et Giorgio, ce sont des gens particulièrement charmants, et attentifs. Leur rencontre aura été fort intéressante, avec une touche de sincérité qui fait plaisir...Bref une vraie qualité de service et de très bons moments. A recommander absolument

Quelle déception!

  • 2 of 5

Nous voyageons à l'étranger au minimum 4 fois dans l'année et sommes habitués des locations de vacances. Malgré les avis positifs et le descriptif enchanteur du site nous avons été décus pour plusieurs raisons.

Premièrement ce lieu est loué en même temps que la grande villa des propriétaires, ce qui n'était nulle part indiqué dans l'annonce. La cohabitation, le respect mutuel et le partage de la piscine ne sont donc pas garantis. Tout dépend de qui loue la villa. Dans notre cas il s'est agit de groupes de jeunes adultes bruyants ou envahissants. Ils ne sont pas en cause directement, l'effet de groupe vaut pour n'importe qui, c'est juste un point que les propriétaires auraient dû mentionner auparavant. Si nous l'avions su, nous n'aurions définitivement pas retenu ce lieu.

Deuxièmement, les voisins immédiats sont extrêmement bruyants, avec un chien qui aboit régulièrement la nuit. Ils ont aussi une hi-fi qu'ils ne se privent pas d'écouter avec le volume au maximum si bien que parfois on se serait crû dans des animations de club de vacances. Nous avons souvent dû rester à l'intérieur du bungalow le soir pour cette raison. A cause de tout cela nous avons changé nos plans, fuit le bungalow et pris un B&B pendant 2 nuits.

Troisièmement, ce lieu est confiné au fond du jardin, à côté d'un cabanon en tôle qui sert de remise et un bûcher. Il y a certes une petite terrasse mais qui donne directement sur des haies et à côté des voisins bruyants. Cette terrasse est donc sans vue, sans espace et sans intimitė étant donné que l'allée entre le bungalow et la piscine, mène à la villa, et est empruntée par les locataires de cette dernière.

Quatrièment, du point de vue de l'équipement, il reste assez basique: un petit réfrigėrateur, un four à micro-ondes et des plaques de cuisson. Vaisselle et autres ustensiles sont en quantité suffisante. Le ménage avait été fait de façon plutôt approximative avant notre arrivée (réfrigérateur et micro-ondes pas extra propres) , plan de travail tellement gras qu'il collait aux mains, vitre de la hotte tout aussi grasse. Nous sommes restés 9 nuits et il est évident qu'en ce laps de temps un coup de balai, au minimum, s'avère nécessaire, mais pas de balai, juste un aspirateur avec un sac plein et dont le fil se rembobine en permanence. Par ailleurs, pas non plus de produit vaisselle, 2 rouleaux de papier toilette en tout et pour tout, pas de draps ou de serviette de rechange. Bref, nous sommes passés à côté de nos vacances.

Owner's Response: Voilà cinq ans que nous louons notre cottage et c'est la première fois que nous recevons un tel commentaire. Nous sommes bien sur conscients que celui-ci ne peut pas plaire à tout le monde mais déçus de vous lire, car nous tenons à rendre les vacances de nos hotes les meilleures possibles. Pour ce qui concerne les voisins, nous sommes désolés, mais ceci peut arriver et ne dépend pas de nous, nous leur en parlerons certainement. La piscine quant à elle mesure 15mx6m et normalement un bon partage se fait, il faut peut-etre en parler gentiement et ne pas se braquer le premier soir car fatigués du voyage. Pour l'équipement de la maison, il est clairement décrit dans l'annonce ainsi que la terrasse, avec à l'appui de nombreuses photos. Il nous semble que pour de brefs séjour il y a vraiment tout le nécéssaire, y compris un aspirateur qui fonctionne (si le sac est plein on le change!). Nous fournissons bien sur le linge de maison ainsi que des serviettes de piscine, à la demande. certaines personnes désirent changer d'autres pas, il suffit de le mentionner ou de nous appeler. Nous sommes, comme vous pouvez le lire dans les commentaires, toujours disponibles pour fournir du matériel en cas de besoin. Il suffit uniquement de parler. Nous insistons sur ce point là. Nous fournissons notre n° de téléphone à l'arrivée pour que, en cas de besoin, nous soyons joignables, aussi bien pour la maison que pour les restaurants, les visites, les plages etc... Vous ne l'avez jamais fait, ceci aurait peut-etre amélioré vos vacances.
