Все было великолепно! Запах цветущих апельсиновых садов, вид на Этну, вид на море, мебель в идеальном состоянии, хотя явно антикварная. Полное соответствие фото. Вода, спагетти и сухарики как комплимент от компании suntripsicily. Дали купоны на бесплатный перекус на Этне (чай/кофе, безалкогольный напиток, пицца/бутерброд). Чайник, духовка - все было, кроме микроволновки. Кондиционер почему-то не работал на обогрев на второй день, но мы не стали выяснять. Нет микроволновки, но не критично.

 

Everything was great! The smell of blooming orange gardens, view of Etna, view of the sea, furniture in perfect condition, although clearly antique. Full matching photo. Water, spaghetti and crackers as a compliment from suntripsicily. Gave coupons for a free snack on Etna (tea / coffee, soft drink, pizza / sandwich). Kettle, oven - everything was except the microwave. The air conditioner for some reason did not work on heating on the second day, but we did not clarify. No microwave, but no critical
