Bellissima location e un padrone di casa gentile e disponibile.
He is a perfect host.
Appartement très sympas, au sein d'un petit lotissement au milieu d'une végétation abondante, qui laisse se dévoiler une mers pudique.
Cuisine minimaliste mais fonctionnelle, le personnel de maison est facilement accessible pour répondre à vos besoins.
A notre que les autres logements sont occupés par des hôtes cosmopolites ce qui aide à se familiariser avec les sonorités d'autres langues.
Facile d'accès à un pas de l'autoroute.
A éviter absolument l'hiver ! Avec le chauffage en option à 4 euros de l'heure, cela double le prix de la location !
J'ai aimé : la possibilité d'arriver à une heure tardive, le parking intérieur, le calme
J'ai détesté : le coût du chauffage, le revêtement de sol écaillé à de nombreux endroits, l'équipement sommaire (exemples : aucun rangement dans les chambres, pas de four ni de micro-ondes), les fuites à un radiateur et au chauffe-eau, 2 ampoules sur 3 qui ne fonctionnent pas dans la pièce principale, etc...
Dear Daniel, you have to remember the price you paid for the apartment: EUR 40,00 per night for 3 people and a dog !!
You must also remember that I discounted the price of heating, since you have been in villa for 11 days.
With regard to the two bulbs that did not work, you could inform me: I would have to change urgently, even though in the living room there are 4 other lamps good working.
The floor has a small chip in at only one point, which it does not compromise the functionality nor the safety and / or aesthetics.
That said, I believe that you were comfortable with the heat well related to your needs, as you yourself have programmed it wanted, and then I'll wait for your soon vacnze summer.
Turi made us feel very welcome at his villa and was very helpful suggesting wine and food at the supermarket for us to try.
The apartment was very clean and the apartment and outdoor space generously sized
Only downside was the wifi not working during our stay
I would happily stay here again - thanks Turi

Turi's villas are located in a residential area some 30 minutes’ drive from Palermo centre in relative proximity to the beach. Even though the villa's only 800 m away from the sea, it's still advisable to drive to the nearest beach as you’ll end up walking along the highway (with no sidewalk) for ca. 10 min to reach it. Beware that the beach is open only during the high season. Nearest supermarket is located in the next village, which can't be reached by foot either. Bottom line, you really need a car to get around, as there's no public transportation in the neighbourhood whatsoever!
Once you have a car, it’s very easy to get to the highway to explore the north-eastern and southern parts of Sicily, avoiding the traffic around Palermo.
We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment in one of the villas with the swimming pool. We were lucky to get an exclusive use of the pool too since there were no other tenants in this villa at that time.
There’s one thing to consider though: acoustics in these apartments is incredible, you can hear almost everything that’s going on inside and outside the house, which can be disturbing sometimes.
The premises are very nice and clean, the villas are surrounded by pine and olive trees. Sunbeds and garden furniture are at your disposal at any time.
Turi is a wonderful host! He and his wife Elvira were most helpful and accommodating, e.g. organising transfers and car rent, showing around the neighbourhood, providing sightseeing and restaurant tips, etc. First time in Sicily, we always felt that we were in good hands. Thank you!
Dear Larisa, thank you for your detailed and careful review and are happy to know that your first time in Sicily was a success. Regarding access to the beach I though have to make a clarification; the beach that you have found closed is the Lido Sporting's beach, because it has a private access to it. But you can get to this stretch of beach accessed from the beaches adjacent to it, at any time of year. Luckily there still are no private beaches in Sicily, but only private access! ;-))
Another specification that will help other travelers is that of the supermarket; in the summer months the nearest is to 800 meters, although I always recommend to reach the nearby fishing village of San Nicola L'Arena, 3 km far away, where you can buy everything.
I'll wait for yet a second time!
Très bonne location. tout est bien agencé et fait avec beaucoup de goût. endroit paisible, très agréable et à proximité de voies rapides, ce qui permet de se rendre rapidement à divers endroits. Turi et sa famille sont vraiment très accueillant et aussi très attachant. Bref, on se sent bien .... Allez-y.
