We have spent a wonderful two-week holiday in this apartment. We enjoyed the beautiful view from the terrace across the colourful garden and sparkling Mediterranean towards Sciacca and the mountains beyond. It is well worth getting up early in the morning to watch the sunrise.
It is an ideal location for exploring the fascinating layers of history in this region, from the ancient ruins at Segeste and the classically beautiful temples of Agrigento, to the dramatic medieval town of Erice. Relaxing days can be spent at the local family beach of San Marco or at the more remote locations in the vicinity of Eraclea Minoa. We did not attempt to use public transport and a car is probably a necessity. And our advice – “when in Sicily drive like a Sicilian!”
The apartment is comfortable, well-appointed and good value for money. However, it is the owners, Giuseppe and Iryna, who set this apartment above all others. They are very unobtrusive but more than willing to help if asked. Giuseppe will proudly share his local knowledge and give advice on sites to visit and places to eat. But, more importantly, we will always be eternally grateful for their support, kindness and generosity when my husband required urgent medical treatment. Giuseppe acted as our chauffer, interpreter and
carer during our hospital visits. We appreciate everything he did for us and will never be able to thank him enough. We also thank Iryna for supplying comfort food and polishing our car before our return journey home. Above and beyond the call of duty! Whether Jim is allowed to go on holiday again is up to the result of Brexit and his wife!!!
Have just returned from Sicily, staying in this great apartment with views of the sea from the terrace! On the 4th floor, there is a lift to floor 3 & 21 steps to floor 4. The steps are shallow & easily managed! The apartment has sloping ceilings & for the first time in my life, I was at risk of bumping my head! Having said that, it added to the charm of the place!! The apartment was well equipped & thank goodness had air conditioning, which was vital with the wonderful weather we had! Great base to visit Mt Etna, Taormina, Siracusa & Ortigio. More locally Aci Trezza is worth a visit! The owner is extremely helpful & kept in contact with us throughout the 2 weeks & was easily contactable if there were any queries. Having a designated parking space was also great, no having to search for a place on return from a day out! Enjoyed this 'home from home'!!
