About this listing
At five minutes walk from downtown, the room and house were very nice. And the owner know how to make you feel at home.
My house is about 100 square meters, consists of two bedrooms, one single for guests and one double for me. There is one bathroom and one kitchen. The living room-kitchen is spacious and has a balcony where you can enjoy the view of the city from below.
Available high-speed Internet WiFi, air conditioning, shower with hot water at all hours of the day and kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
Guests can expect to meet a host courteous and friendly, attentive and polite, ready to smile and irony. Mind wide open to foreigners and coached by two years of hosting with the renowned site of sofas.
My neighborhood is popular but full of life, greengrocers, grocery store, bars with typical sicilian products, a few steps from the weekly open-air market, 2km from the park of the Valley of the Temples and 1km from the bus and train station.
No pet, no smoke and politeness
Eugenio is a very nice host, helpful and makes you feel like a home.
It was very nice to stay in his apartment.
The place is clean and the location is good as well, only 10-15 mins from the centrum and walking distance to the ruins. Easy to find.
I stayed Eugenio's house for 2 days. He picked me up from the train station. It was sooo thankful in the rainy day! Actually, he is the first host of my Airbnb traveling, and made me have good memories with good hospitality, good food (yeah..he js a good cook) and music, the conversation! Even more, he made a call many times day and night to find a taxi to Scala dei Turchi, since there are not many taxi drivers and no public transportation system equipped to the place.
Thank you again.
Staying at Eugenio is just the perfect plan ! At five minutes walk from downtown, the room and house were very nice. And Eugenio know how to make you feel at home ! Lots of little attentions... Very good cooker, nice talking, good advices, make you discover the area and very great places... Such a great time ! Such a nice host ! Hope to see you again Eugenio ! And grazie mille per tutti !
God, where do I start? For the short time I was in Agrigento, Eugenio helped me cover off everything I wanted to tick off the list and more. My stay would be incomplete in Sicily if not for his gracious and welcoming personality, with an attention for detail like no other. He even borrowed his neighbours hairdryer for me. I had a very happy time in Agrigento as a result. Grazi Eugenio, I hope I see you again. Prego…Arrivederci amico!!
Eugenio was a great host, very helpful and even took me on a late night tour to the Valley of the Temples. Upon arrival he offered to share the pasta he was preparing with me (very tasty!). The room was clean and tidy. Would stay at his place again.
Agrigento is a beautiful city . Crowned by its splendid Valley of the Temples , is also when you walk your eyes for their streets (especially the impossible labyrinth of stairs , around the way Atenea) when it reveals its secrets : charming corners , the authentic Sicily with those people ready to show you how you can go out from there ( an adventure! ) with the funny gesture of the people who understand how easy it is for tourists to lost themselves, following those colored sheets hanging to dry from all the balconies !
And here I find Eugenio. His house is a friendly place , well located close to all the interesting points ( easy walking distance ) , clean, with all the necessary details to make your stay pleasant . It's a nice house, in which like to be .
But undoubtedly what gives more charm to his home is Eugenio himself . He causes all the warmth you can find there .
He offered to pick me up at the station, gave me maps and comprehensive information on the city , accompanied me to the peculiar scaladeiturchi beach ( do not miss it ! white stones become softly orange when the sun is leaving) , gave me enter to see one of the events summer under the illuminated temple of June ... the list is endless . Eugenio good understanding of the true spirit of Airbnb . He is hospitable, available, traveler so he understands the needs of the people traveling , and if it is in his hand , always offers his help to resolve them.
Also, he loves to cook and invited me to taste the Sicilian style pasta rooted ( of carretto ¿ ;-)) , which also gave me his interesting conversation.He enjoys traveling , and benefites the visit of their roomer to sneak by all over the world who come to his home .
Listen carefully , ask with interest , likes to learn, think intelligently, is critical to his reality , striving to improve things, and if this is not enough, have a bright humor with a personal touch ironic ( he always drew a smile in me, easily !)
Recommend Agrigento , and recommend the home of Eugenio hosting, is a safe bet. He is a person of those who , from his simplicity , gives and contributes everything he has . Since then , someone very nice to meet.
Thank you for everything! Here you have a person friend :-)
Eugenio is great! He welcomed us with drinks and fresh fruit after a long trip but mainly with his enthusiasm and interest.
He's a very interesting and you can see he's an experienced host. His apartment is really nice, clean and well located (10-15 minutes by car from the famous Scala dei Turchi), the room is quite spacious.
