It was certainly a picturesque view! It feels like heaven on earth. The pictures just dont do it justice, pictures are great but in real life it's just even better!!
The apartment is fully equipped with whatever you need, from a baby cot , to umbrella to some pots and pans.
Right below is a rather fancy restaurant and people go there to enjoy the view and you get the whole package without having to go there and pay a great price on the food! .I say cook yourself a great meal, sit at the balcony and just relax and enjoy the breathtaking view.
During the day you can just stroll down the street and visit some of the little shops on the island. It's a great Sicilian life really.
First, the positives - absolutely fantastic location, overlooking the sea, beautiful view, great sunsets from the balcony. Right in the centre of town near loads of great bars, restaurants and shops and just moments away from the beach. The apartment itself is clean and well decorated, with a comfortable bed and plenty of space for 2 people. The kitchen equipment is slightly wacky, just missing a couple of details to make it great.
Unfortunately, the negative is a really big one - we went in July and the small fan and open windows just didn't keep the apartment cool. We were so hot overnight we had to sleep separately. It may be ok when the weather isn't so hot but the owners either need to buy some more ventilation or install air conditioning - the rental prices are really reasonable so even charging for air con for those people who want it shouldn't be a major problem. The small, single bedroom was internal facing so there is no ventilation in there at all.
Quite a distance from parking and the entrance is up some pretty steep steps, but the information provided by the owners reflects this.
We wouldn't recommend this to anyone who's not used to the hot weather or mobility difficulties because of the stairs, but otherwise it's a good deal.
