"A nice villa in a good location....."
I booked and stayed at the Villa Cristalli during early August with 3 other adults. The 3 main reasons I booked the villa were; location, price and pool.
The location was excellent for Syracuse being only 10 minutes by car and about 5 minutes drive from the beautiful beach of Arenella, the area of Plemirrio was a little disappointing, it seems that it still being developed and in 10 years time, I'm sure it will be a very nice Italian holiday community. The area was mainly dirt tracks, with wild dogs and quite a lot of litter just thrown at the side of the road. The villa is a 2 minute walk from a lovely bar, which served great coffee, gelato and pizza and the people there were very friendly. There is also a supermarket 5 minutes walk away, which was excellent, fresh bread every day, and a great choice of fruit, vegetables, meats and cheeses. I wouldn't personally choose Plemirrio as a base again until it's tidied up a bit.
The price for the villa was very good and a lot less than other villas, we paid €1,200 for the week and this was attractive as we were also staying at hotels at the start and end of the holiday.
The garden and pool area was excellent, a nice big and deep pool perfect for us. The garden always got the sun and had a lovely shaded terrace for when it got to hot. We also had a nice view of the sea.
When we arrived, we were met by 3 representatives of the agency who were very nice, showing us around the villa and explaining to us how things worked, they also provided us with some fresh fruit and juice which was a nice touch. The villa itself was okay, it was a good size and had air conditioning in 2 of the 3 bedrooms and had a large sitting room and a wonderful terrace. My criticism of the villa was that the kitchen area was disappointing, the utensils were not adequate for 4 people, only 1 cup for coffee, the coffee makers were extremely dirty and the oven was greasy and should have been cleaned.
In summary, the villa was good value for money as coastal villas in Sicily aren't cheap, and the outside area and pool is excellent. It would be a great improvement if the kitchen area was cleaned and updated and that there should be adequate eating and drinking items. Sicily is an absolutely wonderful country and I definitely will return (hopefully many times) but for me it is a dichotomy. One is its beauty, friendly people and stunning views and the other is the lack of respect and care for certain areas, please tidy up the rubbish and have more respect for a beautiful country. I would recommend this villa for people on a budget, but I will spend more next time to get something a little better.
Thank you for your comment. We are glad that you enjoyed the villa and that you liked so much. We hope to have you back another of the guests in our facilities. Sicily is beautiful is managing facilities throughout the territory we can let you enjoy the most beautiful places.
