A spacious totally indipent apartment (private entrance totally indipendent from that of the villa) in a beautiful holiday villa with pool, at very short drive from the sea. The residence is full of palm trees, olive trees and other Mediterranean plants. The residence consists of only 2 villas (the villa of the owner and the appartment that they rent). The holiday residence have several areas, which remain cool and shaded throughout the day. The pool is in use from the 3rd April to 31 October. The residence distance 5 km from beautiful sandy beaches. The appartment is ideal for short trip to Palermo, Cefalù, Monreale, the villas of Bagheria, the Zingaro Park, Trapani and Marsala. The residence is very confortaqble because is only 20/25 mins from Palermo airport.The owners of the villas are old people: they very kind and do not usually take swimming in the pool.. Therefore the pool will feel pretty much as private . The size of the apartment is about 70 m2. The rooms have air-conditioning. The house consists of 2 double bedroom, a bathroom (with shower) a living room with kitchen corner, a dining table and an open kitchen. There is shade patio where to eat outside with barbecue corner.
The owners are really lovely and helpful. They dont speak English but their daughter-in-law does and she was there to greet us. She even gave us her phone number in case we needed anything. We felt very welcome. We had trouble finding the villa though as the instructions were brief and wrong! Tried to ring the person who arranged the rental on behalf of the owners but got an answer machine. My Italian is rudimentary but Sicilians are so friendly and go out of their way to help you that we found it eventually.(and finally got through to this person). The appartment is at the back of the villa and the outside not shown in the photos. I thought it was but the buildings shown are part of the owners villa. \the appartment has a stange layout so I would only go as a family and not friends - the shower (in need of replacing) is in the first bedroom which you have to walk through to get to the twin bedroom and where the other toilet is behind a curtain! The air-con is great ( we had it on at night ) and on the whole the appartment is satisfactory. One thing I do disagree with is it is NOT suitable for wheelchairs. There are steps and no access to a toilet. The owners have 2 dogs which are very friendly (Igor and Si-si) and are kept outside in a run but they do bark occationally. It didnt bother us. I would still recommend the appartment as long as all the facts are known.
