“FAMILY ATMOSPHERE, EXCEPTIONAL CLEANLINESS”
Reviewed December 31, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

Villa Carrubbo is one of the apartments of the Residence degli Ulivi in Avola.
The building is set in an olive grove, where you can also find fruit trees and shrubs. Villa Carrubbo, which is about 70m2, consists a small but well equipped kitchen, a bedroom with a very cosy bed and a huge closet, another small room and a pretty big bathroom with a shower. The water (hot or cold) is available all day which is rare in Sicily. As well as the sheets and towels, changed every 2-3 days, the whole apartment was extremely clean and fresh. WiFi is available, you can also use the microwave or the washing machine.
The greatest asset though, would be the constantly smiling, tremendously kind and energetic lady of the house who makes the guests feel like home. Grazie Carmela!
The residence is a great starting point to sightseeing the east and south coast of Sicily. Of the nearest attractions we recommend Noto, the Syracuse and La Gallina, a small and calm beach a kilometer away. A car is necessary!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 19, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had planned to spend a few days by the pool and a few days sightseeing but our holiday plans were spoilt by the pool not being available. It was empty when we arrived and still not ready for use when we left. The villa is about 1 kilometre from the beach but we're not beach people. A car is not just advisable it is essential, the villa is located on the edge of Avola near the football stadium with no nearby shops or restaurants. Accommodation is basic with a sofa bed which was not comfortable for two people. There was no toaster or microwave and the oven was not working. The villa was not cleaned while we we there but a change of towels and bed linen was provided. Owner was very friendly but could not speak English and as we don't speak Italian conversation was difficult but we got there in the end.
