It wasn't as luxurious as it looked in the photos. Although the kitchen was well equipped I wouldn't have fancied cooking as the lay out was not good with no work space and the sink next to the hob. But it was lovely surprise to have basic items like water, bread, milk, coffee, salt, pepper, oil, dishwasher tablets & washing powder all supplied as not many villas or apartments have this and it made big difference on arrival not to have to find a shop immediately. There were other lovely touches like bathrobes, slippers, hairdryers and hotel style toiletries.
There are lots of lovely restaurants a short walk from the apartment and the bus service was very good to explore the area.
Great views and impeccable service from Maurizio and Alessandro. Nothing is too much trouble. Always there to answer queries and offer valuable advice. Appartment is spacious and with all mod cons, including 3 different ways to make coffee, just in case you forgot you were in Italy, sorry, in Sicily. Just as good as in the photos. Fantastic location and very quiet, despite the odd excitable dog(s), minutes from all the main attractions. By the way, Maurizio is a wine guru, so get your wine advice right there, and Alessandro a great photographer with a keen eye, ask to see his work, you will not be disappointed!
