Some of you may remember me telling you about my wife cousin who is converting a barn in to a holiday let. Well it’s nearly finished with first guests due in Sept 2014.
The property is located in Grotte (Agrigento provence) which is approximately 1 3/4 hours from either Palermo or Catania airport which connected by London airports via Easyjet or Ryanair. A car rental is a must as there is quite a lot to see around this area however my cousin said that they could provide a car if needed and also arrange transfers to and from the airports.
The let is located about half a mile outside my parents home village of Grotte, Agrigento on my cousins summer villa estate. It currently comprises of two double bedrooms with en-suite inc showers, a reception, a kitchen with a lower ground room which has a stone oven, baking area plus storage, three terraces and a decked terrace on the ground floor (to be complete). The let will also eventually have a 10 x 5 metre swimming pool. The area around the let has fruit trees and gardens with vegetables, herbs and fruits which will be available to guests, together with drinking water and a couple of bottles of local vino.
The area around Agrigento boost some of the nices private and public sandy beaches in the area, plus lots of Greek and Roman ruins such as the UNESCO Valley of the Temple Heritage site only 20 mins away and surreal places like the Scale dei Turki.
The let can be on B&B basis or room only for a maximum of 4 people. If anyone’s interested please ask when you’re next in or send an email with your interests to firstname.lastname@example.org
