We loved everything!! The house is nice, very clean and well equipped. Corrado, the owner is a wonderful host. He suggested us places to visit, restaurants and gave us useful info on how to get to the beach. The house is equipped with everything you need. There's a nice kitchen, two bathrooms (one with no shower but still VERY VERY useful for a family of four!) and a washing machine. Yes, you can do your laundry!! AC is in all rooms and works great. Wi-fi doesn't seem to work in the two bedrooms but works well everywhere else in the house. There are stairs to the apartment so you may want to keep it in mind if you have toddlers. There's parking available if you drive there. Avola is a very nice small town and we could easily drive from there to visit the beautiful Noto, Scicli and Ortigia. Also, it's not far from the Vendicari Reserave and the lovely village of Marzamemi. We loved the location!! Overall, we loved the place and had a wonderful stay at the "Casa nel paese della mandorla".
