“Spacious rooms in a tranquil location yet close to Agrigento sites”
Reviewed 22 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We arrived to a very warm welcome from the owner, Laura. The villa is located off the beaten track and, although the unmade road is a little bumpy, this was no problem for us at all. The road leads to Agrigento route SS115 (a few km away) at the top end and takes you to Scala di Turchi and beaches (not very far at all) at the lower end. There were just the two of us and we stayed in the ground floor, very spacious bedroom (1 x double and a single bed) with bathroom, balcony and plenty of wardrobe, drawer space. A large dining room leading to a small, yet functional kitchen. We were glad to have the facilities which included a washing machine, dishwasher and large fridge/freezer. Laura had provided us with bottled water too and some basic ingredients in the kitchen (salt, oil, vinegar, dishwasher tablets, etc.). Two further bedrooms with balconies & fridges on 1st floor, both with balconies and on 2nd floor, two further bedrooms in the eaves, all with ensuite bathrooms. These extra rooms were not used by us or included in the cost of the villa hire. Outside, a lovely garden - huge with olive & citrus trees. A covered seating area and functional barbeque with outside sink and everything you'd need. The rental price was very good value and less expensive than many B&B's. You definitely need a sturdy car and not be afraid of driving down a bumpy road - you're on holiday, so no rush anyway! Bars, restaurants, beaches all closeby but not what we would consider to be within walking distance - but we didn't want to waste time walking (or in the heat) anyway. Two x supermarkets reasonably closeby (by car). We liked the village of Realmonte with 2 x bakers, a great supermarket (Conad) village square with bar and a weekly market (Tuesdays). Agrigento town is about 15-20 mins away by car and we drove past the Valley of the Temples sites frequently (go at night to see them lit up). Great bars, restaurants, shops and gelataria's in town (try Le Cuspidi, it's the best). Some interesting guide books in the house are provided in several languages, there's a TV with limited channels. Laura very kindly let us take one guide book home - she's so helpful and friendly if you have any questions - quick to respond via whatsapp. We have returned to UK fully relaxed and rested. Not sure if we will return to Sicily in the future with so many other places in Italy for us still to visit, but if we do go back, we would definitely book this villa again. Thank you, Laura.

Il gruppetto di ventenni e la SIGNORA Manuela si sono sicuramente infastiditi perché gli ho forse chiesto di effettuare il ceck-out alle 09:00 come accettato al momento della prenotazione?Si sono trovati così male che mi avevano chiesto di lasciare le stanze più tardi per dormire di più. In genere sono molto flessibile con l'orario di uscita , ma non è stato possibile perché dovevo fare le PULIZIE per l'arrivo in giornata di un altro gruppo di persone. Pulizia che è stata fatta con cura pure prima dell'arrivo della SIGNORA Manuela. Infatti hanno trovato tutto pulitissimo, tanto che durante la loro permanenza non hanno segnalato nessuna anomalia di questo genere, se avessero avuto qualche problema e me lo avessero comunicato sarei intervenuta tempestivamente porgendo le mie scuse. Inoltre, tengo a precisare che le pantegane si trovano in città ma non in campagna. posso sicuramente dire che lei e il suo gruppo hanno messo a soqquadro l'intera abitazione, lasciando il disastro più totale, come le docce completamente intasate dalla sabbia nonostante la possibilità di lavarla via utilizzando il rubinetto posto in giardino. prima della prenotazione i gentilissimi signori erano stati informati sull'ubicazione della casa che si trova a 800 metri dalla miniera di salgemma meta di turisti poiché è famosa per la sua cattedrale di sale che è andata più volta in onda in tv in trasmissioni come Lineablu. La Villa non è così isolata se poi sentiva il vicino fare dei lavori nel suo terreno, certamente non potevo impedirlo. I gentilissimi signori sapevano che il vicinato si trova nel raggio di circa 200 metri ed anche i miei genitori abitano li ,tanto che si sentivano urlare e sbattere porte e cancelli. I gentilissimi signori erano stati avvisati che per gli spostamenti necessitava avere l'auto e visto che avevano deciso di viaggiare in autobus avevo loro fornito in anticipo un numero di telefono per noleggiarne una. Ma non hanno ascoltato il mio consiglio. Cara Manuela il giorno che inizierai a lavorare forse saprai apprezzare i sacrifici ed il lavoro degli altri.
