Schitterend uitzicht op zee met verschillende terrassen om te vertoeven!

  • 4 of 5

Nog niet eerder hebben we een huis gehuurd met zo'n bijzonder mooi uitzicht: schitterend! De tuin rondom heeft verschillende terrassen waardoor je door de dag heen altijd de schaduw en zon kunt opzoeken. Airco binnen was fijn. Bedankt voor een heerlijk verblijf!!

Liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Ferienhaus mit großem Garten und Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Meine Frau und ich, beide 50+, verbrachten Anfang Mai 2017 10 Tage im Saffron House. Es liegt ruhig inmitten von Natur und bietet einen herrlichen Meerblick auf die Bucht von Saint Elias. Der wunderschöne großer Garten bietet vielfach Inspiration für Fotomotive. Die Mahlzeiten fanden ausschließlich auf einer der Terrassen statt, je nach Sonnen- bzw. Schattenbedarf. Die vordere Terrasse ist ideal fürs Sonnenbaden.

Das Haus ist liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Die Betten sind bequem. Die Ausstattung entspricht der Beschreibung, alles notwendige ist vorhanden. Schönes Keramikgeschirr und keine Plastikstühle auf den Terrassen machten Lust auf genussvolles Essen. Überhaupt empfanden wir die Abwesenheit von Plastik besonders positiv. Einzig ein Duschvorhang wurde vermisst. Wir hätten unsere Urlaubsliteratur auch nicht selbst mitbringen brauchen, denn Caterina hält interessantes bereit.

Caterina ist eine herzliche Vermieterin. Sie holte uns am Eingangstor der Siedlungsanlage ab und begrüßte uns mit einem frisch gebackenen und sehr leckerem Kuchen, ebenso stand frische Milch im Kühlschrank bereit. Im Bedarfsfall war sie gut und schnell per SMS erreichbar.

Ein Auto ist erforderlich. Der nächste Supermarkt "The Bagh" ist einige km entfernt.

Wir fühlten uns in diesem Urlaubsdomizil sehr wohl und können es empfehlen.

Der Kuchen war echt gut...

Un'oasi di pace e tranquillità immersa nel verde

  • 5 of 5

Siamo appena tornati dal nostro troppo breve soggiorno presso casa Zafferano e già ci manca. La proprietaria sig.ra Caterina ci ha accolti con estrema gentilezza dandoci mille informazioni utili. La casa è perfetta per due coppie di amici come noi: due camere da letto con ciascuna un bagno, salotto comune con cucina con impareggiabile vista sul mare e su un rigoglioso giardino. Tranquillità assoluta "disturbata" solo dalla presenza dei gabbiani. Nelle immediate vicinanze alcuni paesi dove poter trovare discreti ristoranti. Il periodo primaverile è perfetto per visitare Palermo, Trapani, Erice e dintorni. Speriamo di poter tornare!
