Peaceful relaxing charming, but not particularly comfortable - eg not enough easy chairs..
We had a lovely stay, with just one or two problems. Great pool, quiet location, very good local restaurant within walking distance. Plenty of space with the two bathrooms.
We would have liked more comfortable chairs - there were not enough even for 4 people to relax in. Details like lumpy pillows could be improved. The dishwasher didn't work properly at all. And, this is mostly a matter of British taste - we didn't appreciate dead and stuffed birds on the walls.
The greatest problem was to have only one key to the house and garden gate. If one person went out with the key ( to let themselves out of the garden gate) the remaining people were trapped with no way out in an emergency, eg needing an ambulance. We asked for a second key and were told we couldn't have one.
beautiful home in the countryside
Everything you could need privacy nice pool and good WiFi
Grazie di cuore. Giorgio
Very nice place, friendly owner
The house was very nicely presented and we liked the location near Modica. Modica itself is a very nice town to visit and the countryside is lovely. Not to far to the local sites Ragusa 30 mins, Siracusa circa 1 hour. The house is out in the country and the grounds are gated and walled. There are two decent looking restaurants within walking distance, didn't go in as had babies with us and the restaurants open quite late (for Brits).
Communication with Giorgio was very efficient, but all in Italian. In the days of google translate generally no problem, but a guide to the house and info about the local area in English would be a good addition. The gas, electric and local taxes were paid at the end of the stay and a schedule of unit costs in the house would have helped us prepare for departure.
Stayed off season. The house has everything we needed. Unfortunately weather wasn't great and perhaps the layout isn't ideal if the weather isn't nice as the communal sitting area has just one sofa, there were lots of other seats, but not of the comfy variety. There is a pool, but it is closed at this time of year so can't comment on that.
So excellent house, and helpful owner would be 5 stars, but a few minor niggles
Mooi huis met zwembad
Heerlijke vakantie gehad, mooi huis, leuke locatie ,netjes onderhouden. Eigenaar erg aardig en heeft ons rond geleid door het huis bij aankomst. Voelde ons erg veilig door het afgesloten terrein. Je heb wel een auto nodig om de buurt te verkennen, want lopend is niet te doen, maar dat wisten wij. We komen zeker nog een keer terug!
Belle maison dans un environnement agréable avec une grande piscine , idéale pour l'été
Chambres spacieuses avec une excellentes literie, salles de bain fontionnelles avec de beaux matériaux ,grande pièce à vivre
Gros effort à faire au niveau de la cuine , grande et bien équipée
5 poêles en teflon, inutilisables tellement elles étaient abimées
2 petits saladiers dont un en plastique qui était fendu, aucun plat de service
cocottes et fait tout en inox mal lavés , dont un ranger sans être lavé
un four correct mais l'autre non nettoyé
1 seul torchon pour 2 semaines
assiettes et verres très très diparates au niveau de la taille
Pourquoi cette situation? Pas pour le coût j'espère car j'ai acheté une grande poêle, 2 saladiers et 3 torchons pour 14 euros !!
Autre problème : le propriétaire ne parle qu'Italien !!! Pas la moindre notion de langues étrangères, même l'anglais !!!
ENFIN , il serait souhaitable qu'ABRITEL demande aux propriétaires de mentionner dès la reservation (et non pas dans le contat) toutes prestations non incluses dans le prix de base de la location, comme eau, l'électricité ou diverses taxes ce qui éviterait aux locataires de voir le prix majoré (13 pour cent ) en fin de séjour
Avec un propriétaire qui ne parle que sa langue natale difficile de s'expliquer !
Meraviglia della Sicilia
Sono stato in questa casa con la mia famiglia per ben due volte! Che dire! La casa è veramente completa di tutto, perfettamente curata, arredata nel tipico stile siciliano. È una vera meraviglia. Giorgio è veramente stato spettacolare, disponibile, eccezionale! I suoi consigli:utilissimi, i luoghi indicati: da sogno! Io e la mia famiglia non potevamo chiedere di meglio. Tutto è perfetto: giardino, giochi per i bimbi, piscina a misura di adulti e bimbi, casa, comfort... Veramente tutto ciò che si può desiderare. Torneremo in questo fantastico luogo per molti anni ancora e il proprietario Giorgio non si libererà facilmente di noi.
