A comfortable property run by a charming family

  • 5 of 5

We flew to Catania and drove overland in a hire car to this small fishing town on the north coast. The car was useful, but, in fact, this apartment is very close to San Nicola L'Arena' s railway station, which offers easy trips into Palermo, Cefalú and other stations along that line.

The accommodation is very comfortable and remains cool during the hot Sicilian day. The three generations of the family who own the property, live right next door and are really welcoming, charming and were prepared to help with any queries we had.

We would wholeheartedly recommend this apartment for a stay in Sicily.

séjour à San Nicola l'Arena du 4 au 7 mai 2016

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'accueil chaleureux et la gentillesse d'Afonso , Maria et Marie ; toujours disponibles et aussi très discrets !

la proximité immédiate de la gare était très commode ; cela nous a permis de nous rendre à Palerme rapidement ( à peine 20 minutes de train ) sans avoir le soucis de parking et de circulation pour le véhicule .

L' appartement est spacieux et a tout le confort; le seul bémol est qu'il est un peu sombre, mais ça ne nous a pas trop gêné car nous n'étions pas beaucoup présents en journée.

Nous recommandons cette location .
