PLEASE READ ALL REVIEWS BEFORE YOU BOOK WITH TURI. Our mistake was that we didn't. We stayed 3 nights and then left before our reservation ended as Turi and his mother made us feel uncomfortable in staying longer. You can stay at Turis, but if you want sheets on your bed and towels, he will force you to pay extra! He charges extra for everything, even to watch TV!!!! Ridiculous!! We have all used Airbnb for a while and never had this experience before. I am a host myself for 1 year and would never dare charge my guests for things a host should provide anyway!! Airbnb refunded us the remainder of our stay. Positives - Great views across Palermo, Good space for 4 people, Turi and his mother started off nice, Gave us a lift to Palermo and local market, Recommended his taxi service Negatives - Too far from civilisation unless you have a car, Taxis to Palermo is €120 return, Property was very basic, No games, books or entertainment for a property so remote, Too far from beach - we couldn't get there, You will be bored if you are a small group, Was very dirty, Showers need new pipes and showerheads as water doesn't flow enough and goes all over the floor, Beds were hard, Rooms were hot, no air conditioning, No mosquito repellents - we were bitten a lot at night, Dog poo around the grounds, No cleaning products - washing up liquid, kitchen cleaner No oil, salt, pepper No Wi-Fi as the listing says - so we had nothing to do When we arrived, Turi immediately tried to charge us €72 for a winter blanket and towels - "winter kit". He said the temperature would drop so we should buy it. We said we didn't need it. Then he said the next day we had to pay €56 for the bedding and towels he had already put on our beds! THEN he said we needed to pay €86 for the property to be cleaned! His mother tried to physically snatch money for this "summer kit" from my hands when I was giving her money for the taxi. She was stopping us from getting our taxi to Palermo for dinner and had Turi on the phone forcing us to pay. We refused to pay. The next two days we did not answer the constant knocks at the door from his mother as we did not want her to take money from us we did not agree to, or was made aware of. I asked him why he did not make us aware of these extra charges, he just said "you didnt read my rules. My rules are my rules". His rules and communication is selective and unclear. His listed extras are not optional, but mandatory. He gives you no choices. He is clearly out to scam more money from visitors!! (you will see this confirmed in other reviews). We had to sneak out of the property...

PLEASE, READ All OTHER 98 REVIEWS BEFORE BOOKING WITH TURI! I do not think I have to add anything except that you have a sense of somewhat altered reality, that you yourself have said that you have booked without first reading the clear rules of the house, my mother knocked on your door to give you a cake to wish you a good holiday, I accompanied you to you and to your friends once a supermarket and once in Palermo free but the third time I called for you the taxi driver and tried there for 2 hours until 4 : 00 of the night picking you drunk in dovve places prostitutes ply their trade at the port of Palermo, which at my villa you can have lots of paid services such as sightseeing boat tour, rent of car or bicycle .. Not all the donuts they can with a hole! Miriam was a superficial guest, who did not respect the rules of the house, that she left without saying goodbye and leaving the house with the door open, which has done damage to my home. After hundreds of nice and polite guests, it had to happen to me too, sooner or later ...

Villa is very nice. We had all second floor for us. I liked very much terrace with a great view. As Additional plus it was allowed to make bbq there. There were some troubles with wi-fi: not all of us could connect to Internet and not every time. But globally, I do think that it's better to have vacation without Internet. All rooms were clear and it's comfortable to sleep there. Each of 2 bathrooms connects to 2 different pairs of rooms. So we didn't have problems to share them. There were only one minus, shower didn't work good in one of bathrooms. We found in the kitchen all necessary dishes. we had good fringe with a freezer, place to wash dishes and another place to wash vegetables, gas stove. We expected to find dishwashing liquid and sponge, but din't find it. So, bought them in the nearest shop. Villa is placed in a beautiful place, and, having a car, you can easily discover Palermo, Cefalu, Mondelo. And I'll recommend you to rent a car and do it. Turi, owner of villa, met us as we agreed, gave as all advices we ask. Thank you again for your hospitality.

Hi Alexander, thank you for your review. About WiFi maybe because you (and the other guests in the different houses) can use max 1 giga for day and you can collect together max 5 devices. I hope to see you soon again!

Turi's place is great! Very spacious and calm! It is also very confortable to contact him easily if we need anything ! We had a great time especially because he suggested to organize for us a day trip on a boat and that was the cherry on the cake to finish our 3 weeks vacation all around Sicilia!

We were a family of 5 staying at Turi's. The villa is really beautiful, the photos don't do it justice. We were welcomed by Turi and also by his mother and Juliana. The villa is situated in a beautiful green garden, Turi's mother was telling us how much she likes to garden and she has done a wonderful job. The villa is built on top of the parent's house, which was lovely as they were always around if we needed help, or just to have conversations with. We did not have a car, and this did make our trip much more expensive than we had anticipated as we had to get taxis to move around, and of course 5 seater plus bigger taxis. Turi was so lovely, he is a very warm and charming man, and helped us with travel/tourist advice and arrangements. I fell in love with Turi's mother, she is truly divine, Juliana was also so very kind and she and the mother arranged for us to have fresh bread delivered. The beach by the lido, is lovely, a pebble beach, but it didn't matter as the rocks in the sea are fantastic for jumping off. We were the only tourist at that beach which probably shows its a hidden gem. Initially we were disappointed and upset that the swimming pool, which was an important booking factor for our holiday was no longer available as it was booked privately by another family, we didn't know this until we got there. Overall a wonderful stay and lovely host and family, would surely return! Grazie Mille Turi!! Anosike Family from London xxx

Our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 children aged from 10 to 12) enjoyed the comfort and hospitality of Turi and his mother for 7 nights. The apartment, the first floor of a self-contained house, his mother living downstairs, is very spacious, clean, convenient and comfortable, with wonderful terrasses, the main one overlooking the beautiful bay. The apartment is located in a residential area up on a hill. We could enjoy the swimmingpool located 30 metres away from the hose, in the same property, where Turi has another 2 houses, besides his own. Despite our hose did not have wifi, he gave us access to a wifi that could be reached when in the pool area. Turi is very kind and provided all the help we needed. During the week, his mother took good care of us. She is a kind and lovely lady, who made sure we always had everything we needed and even cooked a delicious cake for the whole family! I would defenitely recommend Turi's VIlla to anyone wishing to explore the amazing isle of Sicily.

Turi's house was spacious and comfortable for the 6 of us. The views of the bay of Naples are spectacular from the terrace. Turi and his mother made sure everything was well taken care of during our stay. We thought the location was perfect for us - not too far from Naples by car and easy access to the autostrada.

We stayed in one of Turis appartments/villas for three days in july 2014. Turi is a very friendly host, available and willing to help. The house was modern and nice, and had nice outdoor areas with sun or shadow all day long. It may be a little warm - no aircon - but it was a moderate outdoor temp when we were there and we slept well.
