When I booked our Accomodation on line for our 12 days in Sicily I hope that it would give us a true feeling of the life style and country where my husband was born. Well Giovanni and Patricia delivered far more than I could have ever expected. On arrival to our apartment Giovanni took the time to show us around and making sure that we were comfortable. The little things that made the difference was a bowl of fresh fruit on the table, fresh bread rolls on the side board, coffee and tea, fresh water and condiments in the fridge. And then there is the location of Palazzu Stidda, it is central to the Fresh Markets where you can get just about anything you desire. You are only a short walk to all the attractions within the City, Patricia and Giovanni had supplied a detailed map of where to find all the essentials and an abundance of tourist information available so we could plan our days. Staying here was a fantastic introduction to Sicily and we were able to get a true insite into the lifestyle that my husbands father lived before he immigrated to Australia. Our only regret is that Dad passed away before we made this trip and he didn't get the chance to accompany us and enjoy the hospitality of Giovanni and Patricia.
