Delightful traditional house on two floors.The property is situated half way up a typical, ancient stone stairway, completely pedestrian and so extremely quiet. It has been recently renovated and furnished and equipped with love and care.Large kitchen/dining and reading corner downstairs. Bathroom with window also downstairs. Large bedroom and small terrace with table and chairs upstairs.Guests have the entire property to themselves.It is the only rental proerty in the road and our dear friends and neighbours give you the keys and welcome you. Although it is in the heart of Scicli, in the oldest part, it is away from tourism and you find yourselves becoming part of local life. It may not be suitable for small children and it is certainly not suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties. If you want to experience the real Sicily from a quiet, charming, comfortable and clean base this is fine.We don't have a tv or free wifi so if you need luxury, TV and contact with many other tourists this is not for you. A food shop is at the bottom of the road and all other amenities in easy walking distance. It is easy to find free parking in all the nearby roads, the whole area is extremely safe.
The perfect retreat if you want to slow down and experience the real

Why Rosalind Amy Price chose Scicli
This house is supposed to be a retreat for us when we get older. Meanwhile, we do not want it kept empty and would like to share both the house and the fun of being in this typical ancient quarter along with the local people.As a family we have seen that prices are very high, we hope to offer modest accommodation for a modest price. The property is ideal for 2/3 guests but if you have small children and are adaptable, please get in touch and we can see what we can do!
