This is a very special house with a lovely decoration inside and a beautiful garden around it. Other people may think it is a mess because there are things hanging and standing everywhere, but that is just what makes is so special and beautiful. It's perfect for people who are cultural and artistic. The shower is not very good, but you can get clean and it's warm.
Location pour une semaine, très bien reçu. la maison est charmante, très calme et bien située. Nous avons pû voyager en voiture autant à l'est qu'à l'ouest pour visiter.
We stayed at The Oaks for 3 nights! And wow what a view the outdoor space was wonderful and with the Sicilian weather that is where you want to be.
Since we were visiting friend and family we did not spend much time at the house - not even one meal was cooked or prepared there because of our schedule - so I can not share much about the kitchen, cooking or dining there.
The house is dark and cool which is nice in the summer and though it was chilly for our stay once you open all the shutters the Sicilian light warmed all the rooms. It felt a little unwelcoming to only have access to 2 bedrooms since all the other rooms were locked. It took away from the experience of renting a house. Sometimes it nice to sneak off to a new space to curl up to a book.
One big problem was we were told there was internet and when we arrived it turned out we needed some "airport" attachment for our laptops. This actually caused us some distress finding our group we were to meet up with. One other downfall was the linens, pillows sheet and towels all felt worn and old. To me as an Airbnb Host is a basic when offering up your house to guest.
Patrizia and her husband were super friendly and new to the Airbnb but open and eager to learn.
