Elena's Mom met us at the gas station in Castelbuouno and brought us to the Mini-house. The house is great, exactly what is shown in the pictures. Very cleverly designed inside to give you a great sense of space in such a tiny enclosure. It's in the middle of the mountains so it's great to get away and relax. A car is obviously a must, and a gps or maps is also quite important to find your way back. Overall it was a great experience and we were really happy to give this one a try!

What a nice, clean tiny house! Everything was inside! With a very good bed! And the surrounding is quiet in the country-side, but close to castelbuono and a half hour from Cevalu. The parent of Elena meet us in castelbuono and bring us to the house. What a lovely people! We also enjoyed the cats near the house, we hope somebody else will take care of them too ;)

Elena runs an indeed very small but charming house (4x4m) which is incredibly complete though, and divided very clever. With the bed on the entresol, a small kitchen and table, a separate bathroom (with splendid shower) and a couch, everything you need is actually there. The apartment is well equiped (except for wifi) and also has a spacious terrace outside overlooking the mountains. It's a steep climb 2 km outside the nice village of Castelbuono, but it is located beatifully. We had 2 lovely days there. We didn't meet Elena herself, but her mother took us to the apartment and was very friendly. Although we experienced small misunderstandings (unclear meeting point, wrong coordinates) the communication was clear and kind.

We spent 5 days in the mini house. The house is clean ans ideal for 2 or 3 people and idealy located in Castebuono in the madonie parc. The sea is near (25 km) and it is possible to go in Cefalu or Castel di Tusa. Catelbuono is very nice town, we really enjoyed this town and the atmosphere. Btw the house is outside the town and a car is recommanded.
