Description of House 59421

Typical house with garden by the sea

Old farmhouse surrounded by the Sicilian countryside, with typical vegetation of orange, mango and banana plantations. The round stone beach, not private but little frequented, is located a few meters away, access through a small grove of eucalyptus trees. Inside, the house is very spacious, comfortable and furnished with taste and simplicity. The large front yard, with the shade of a large palm tree and an ancient pine tree is a pleasant place to eat and relax in the comfortable lounge chairs. The bedrooms have a small private garden with tables, chairs and hammocks. On the large terrace, the sight and smell of the sea will delight you. All around the countryside is at your disposal for long delightful walks where the children can play. We offer everything you need for the beach like flippers, fins and masks, blankets and chairs and even a nice boat. Every season is a surprise, the scent of orange blossoms in the spring, orange juice collected from the trees in winter, mangoes in the fall .... Not much reception for mobile phones. You may possibly encounter a spider or a worm, the house is surrounded by nature and they are the main inhabitants, not enemies...

Renters' reviews

Recommended by our renters

Laura, on 08/09/14

  • English (US)
  • Italian

This text has been machine translated.The house is beautiful, the lovely, clean and very close to the sea, the beach and the owners sparsely populated exquisitely polite. Not only I found super well, but I have already booked to go back next year. Besides, the area is full of beautiful places to visit so you do not own, if you wish, chance to get bored even if you're so well that you do not even want to move.

View the results of the procedure

If this box is checked, the quality control inquiry did not substantiate the allegations made by the guest, or the problem is unlikely to affect future guests. In this case, no action will be taken. However, you can discuss the matter with the owner.

Problem resolved by the owner with backup documents forwarded

If this box is ticked, the quality inquiry has noted the need for further information. We therefore asked the owner to alter the listing, and checked that the new information was indeed added.

Corrections made to the description or further information added to the listing

If this box is checked, the inquiry noted the need for more information concerning a potentially deceptive aspect of the property. In this case, we added a MediaVacationRentals.comQuality Information message to alert potential guests to the aspect in question.

Inclusion of a quality service message

If this box is ticked, the inquiry highlighted the need to change, repair or replace an aspect of the rental or the equipment. The owner corrected the problem and sent us proof when necessary. Should there be a delay in correcting the problem (structural work required…), we will add a MediaVacationRentals.com Quality Information message or possibly suspend the listing.

Deletion of the listing

If this box is checked, the quality enquiry indicates a serious problem or one that cannot be corrected by any of the above-mentioned actions. In this case, the listing will be deleted for good.
