BnB without Breakfast
We booked a cottage via AirBnB for our first week of a month long holiday in Sicily and the south of Italy. Villa Trabia is a grand old summer residence. There are three apartments to rent in the large gated grounds. We did think we'd booked Lemon, which looked the brighter of the two one bedroom cottages, online but somehow ended up next door in Agave. Friendly check in by the agent and a quick walk through the orchard to show us the pool plus some recommendations regarding local restaurants and then left to settle in. The cottage is nicely furnished with interesting art work, the bedroom has a huge amounts of hanging space and a much needed ceiling fan. A small bathroom, kitchen and a good size sitting room with a dining area is all that we need space wise plus we spend most of our time in the outdoor area. The pool is fantastic and much used and as no one else seems to be staying we have it all to ourselves. It's the perfect place to relax after thirty hours of flying from NZ. We loved exploring the local streets, buying fresh peaches, cheeses and a delicious coiled locally made sausage. We also discovered vino s'fuzo and filled a 5lt flagon with rosé for a ridiculously cheap price. The cottage is very basic and we have to buy quite a few things to make our week more comfortable. Mosquitos are a pest, an ancient electric insect killer is plugged in in the sitting room and sizzles every now and then. But they love me so we have to buy spray and coils for the evening attack. The kitchen is reasonably well equiped for cooking though we have to buy breakfast basics as the provided instant coffee is old and just a solid mass in the jar. There are a couple of excellent little cafes two minutes away, which we visit each morning and I'm surprised that we haven't been provided with vouchers [most AirBnB we've stayed in seem to do this in Italy] for a coffee and croissant. BnB without the breakfast? No washing machine so we have to hand wash and we couldn't find an iron nor ironing board which might bother others. We're in holiday mode and wrinkly clothes don't bother us. No shampoo, conditioner, body wash are provided and the one toilet roll didn't last long. The side light light bulbs in the bedroom and sitting room died and could not find replacements was another nuisance. We enjoyed our week in Bagheria at Villa Trabia, the grounds and pool our wonderful and more than made up for the short comings but for the price we paid [$180NZ a day] we were expecting a few more comforts of home.
