I spent 5 days at "Villa Piera" and loved it!
The flat: it's very large, exactly as described, but much nicer when there! Mr and Mrs Saputo really looked after every detail in there to make guests feel confortable....
Rooms are big, beds very comfortable, bathroom very large. Flat extremely clean.
I particularly enjoyed the terrace upstairs. Amazing views and... shower! I strongly suggest having one, with views on seaside and hills...
The village: it's a cosy little village, very authentic, people very welcoming. Beaches are walking distance and seaside is amazing. Good choice of restaurants, cafe, bakeries...
We rented a car, but that is common in Italy I would say.
With no car, train station is nearby and walking distance, buses run as well. You can still reach the closeby Castellammare sul Golfo, Palermo or Trapani.
I've been overall impressed by the hospitality and availability of the owner, mrs Piera. She really made her best to make us feel at home, giving us advise every day, yet giving us a lot of privacy!
Mrs PIera can also arrange transfer from airports or sourrounding areas, she did it for us on a very short notice. Definitely a plus!
overall strongly recommended, I couldn't believe it was such a good value for money!

Owners made us very welcome nothing too much trouble. appartment very well equiped view from balcony disappointing but rooftop view was better. sea and beach not as near as described and was rather dirty but great for swimming and deserted but no amenities. Good variety of bars and restaurants in the evenings but you need a car to explore further. Loved the people and food and scenery.
