Aspra, to discover!
After a long day of travelling, Giacomo, got in touch with us prior our arrival to give us some instructions. And wanted to make sure he could welcome us in his house. That was reassuring. He gave us instructions and relevant information to explore the area. And he was present and available when needed. There are steps to go down to reach the villa but not too many. The parking at the villa is for seasoned driver, can be tricky for others. The villa has an astonishing view, morning, afternoon and nigh, just as per the pictures. The kitchen is well equipped for cooks. Coffee is available, combined with his Bialetti, how better to get accustomed to Italian espresso, that was a plus for us 😊 Villa was clean, main bed was comfortable (pillow a bit thin for my habits). The sofa bed was fine for a few nights. Although the pool water was a bit cold, it was perfect for our daughter that did not seem to mind. Aspra can be reached by walking. Beautiful view of the port, with a local fish market every morning. We bought fish that we cooked at the villa, it was very good! Palermo is only 10 min away by train, which is an easy ride. And plus, there is parking at the train station. There is a grocery store nearby, in Dragheria, again, with parking. For runners, I was able to run every morning, alongside the port and further. Felt safe on the roads and everywhere I ran. All and all, I would stay there again. Merci Giacomo for making us feel at home at your home!
