We just completed a month of May at the villa. We were greeted by the entire family after our arrival. Communication with the owners were a little difficult since English is not their native language. One surprise we got was we were told we had to clean the villa before we left. I just assumed there would be a maid or house cleaning service. we did clean the entire villa before we left as told. When the owners checked us out, she seemed surprised we had cleaned it, I had told her she said we were supposed to leave it clean. I'm not sure I understood what she meant.
On the other hand, we enjoyed our visit, and Terrasini is an excellent location in traveling around Sicily. The villa ,however, is not exactly how the photos appeared. It has aged and not kept up as the photos show. Some of the items in the home show neglect and the idea of less is more might need to be applied.This is Mamma's home, but some upgrading of kitchen items and comfortable seating, would help a great deal to keep the villa in the running.
