Overview

About the property

Villa in Altavilla Milicia, Palermo, Sicily, Italy - 5 Minutes From A Sandy Beach

Villa Olive is located in a quiet area. Nearby there are very beautiful beaches (at less than 5 minutes by car), public and private. If you like cooking and want to taste some of the best sicilian delicatessen food and fish then you will enjoy the fish market and shops at san Nicola l'arena.

The villa is nice and bright. There is a tiny but full equiped kitchen, a large dining room with a TV corner and a sofa. There are 2 bedrooms, one matrimonial and one triple (1 single bed + 1 bunk bed) and 1 bathroom with shower.

There is a veranda accessible from the kitchen and overlooking the garden and the pool. The veranda is furnished like a lounge area and will give you the possibility to relax "al fresco".

In the garden, in front of the veranda, there is a dining area settle so you can organize your dinner directly there or organize a BBQ.

The swimming pool works also in spring and autumn so if you fancy to take a swim off season it will be possible.

The property around the villa is completely fenced so it is safe for children (the swimming pool is not fenced/guarded, it will be your responsibility to watch carefully at children or any one not able to swim).

Lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

This could be a five star review but for a few things, mostly beyond the owners control, which I will come to.

First I have to say that the garden and pool are absolutely fabulous and, as this is where you should spend most of your time, this is really where the 4 stars are earned. The pool is massive, we've been renting villas across Europe for 20 years now, and the pool is the best we've ever had. The garden is well laid out and mature and it was wonderful sitting in the shade of the olive trees watching the dragonflies and the lizards flit about. The large table and parasol is a great spot to sit and eat.

In the evening the balcony was a terrific place to sit. There's plenty of entertainment to be had watching the bats feeding on the moths attracted by the spot light above it. It also meant we weren't soaked by the garden sprinklers that come on around midnight.

The villa is not large, but is clean (although the cooker needs a scrub), comfortable and perfectly functional. Having a decent parking space that you could lock the gates on was good too. Once the gates are locked you could feel very safe here.

The things that detract are 1/ The closeness of the motorway. It's a constant background noise in the day (but you really don't hear it once inside at night). 2/ The wi-fi provided is best described as poor, fortunately we had large enough data packages to get us through the week. 3/ We like to be able to walk to somewhere in the evening, but a car is absolutely essential here. The villa is tucked away down some very narrow back streets and there is nothing within walking distance by way of shops or restaurants. You even have to take a drive to get rid of your rubbish.

Finally, I would recommend the owners provide more comprehensive instructions on how things work around the villa. They don't speak English and we barely understand Italian, so it was a bit hit and miss as to whether we got what they were telling us on arrival. (Thank God for Google translate though!) A folder of some sort with clear instructions on things like the villa lighting, pool lights, what to do when the power goes, the washing machine etc would be useful. It could also contain more detail about how things work in Sicily (eg the supermarkets don't open on Sunday afternoons) and where the nearest banks, shops, restaurants and attractions are.

Overall, this is a villa I would definitely recommend providing you don't mind driving.

Le seul atout : la piscine

  • 2 of 5

Maison proche de Palerme et facile d'accès, indépendante avec un grand jardin et une grande piscine, dommage que tout cela soit gâché par un environnement bruyant (chiens qui aboient sans cesse même la nuit et autoroute reliant Messine passant au bout du jardin).

L'intérieur de la maison est à rafraichir et notamment la salle de bain qui n'est pas des plus propre, de même que le bois autour de la piscine où les vis ressortent ce qui est dangereux principalement avec des enfants.

Propriétaires ne parlant ni le français, ni l'anglais ce qui est quelque peu gênant quand on loue à l'international.

Enfin WIFI inexistante.

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre commentaire. Nous sommes désolés d'apprendre que votre séjour a été perturbé par les chiens du voisinage, ce n'est malheureusement pas un élément que nous maitrisons. Toutefois nous tenons compte de votre remarque et nous aviserons les voisins. Je tiens aussi à préciser que l'autoroute n'est pas attachée au jardin de la villa, de plus la proximité de l'autoroute et la position exacte de la villa sont indiquées sur l'annonce. Pour la connexion Internet, il est aussi clairement indiqué sur l'annone que la connexion se fait grace un modem 3G WiFi et non une connexion ADSL WiFi, qui peut etre moins rapide mais qui permet toutefois de naviguer. Il est vrai que les propriétaires ne parlent qu'italien mais nous sommes toujours disponibles en cas de besoin. Pour le reste de vos remarques, nous avons informé les propriétaires de façon à ce qu'ils puissent effectuer les ajustements nécessaires. Cordialement
