Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Amico Agrigento
To have a nice time!
We travelled on Sicily by car and some times it was hard to find the accommodations. But in Agrigento we had an very sincere welcome because the owner of that house shows us from an central point of the city by his own car the way. The house is very near (by car) to the beach and also to "Valle dei Templi". The rooms were clean and there was really no noise level. Bathroom was clean and amply. By the way it was really good to see how enthusiastic the owner is doing his work, I hope he keep that for a long time. With my experience I really can advise that accommodation.
Wonderful Italian Hospitality
We arrived in Agrigento by car and immediately were lost. One call to Pierdomenico and he was there to lead us to Villa Amico in a few minutes. The Villa is in San Leone, a seaside town about a 10 minute drive from Agrigento and even closer to the temples. Our room had a little terrace overlooking the garden. This is a great location for visiting the temples and Agrigento. It is close enough to the beach to walk and there are fine restaurants and Gelato there. Although we had a car (free parking) there were people staying at the Villa who were using the bus to visit Agrigento and the temples. Pierdomenico also let us use his washing machine. The breakfasts were wonderful - breads, juice and Italian coffee. The passeggiata on Saturday night at the beach was lots of fun. We had an unpleasant experience eating at Trattoria Da Fofo, but the Ristorante Il Molo next to the gas station at the end of the Lungamare had a fixed price (15 euros) Mediterranean fish meal - 10 antipasto, 3 primi courses, water and wine - you get what they serve - the restaurant was full of locals and the food was delicious.
Very pleasant stay
Even though it is not easy to find we can definitely recommend Villa Amico. The owner (Pierdomenico) is very friendly and helpful. It has a good location to visit the temples and within a 10 minute walk you can reach the sea and some very nice restaurants. Our room was very spacious (except for the shower which was rather small)
Because of its very good price/quality ratio this is a very good deal.
A real gem in many ways
We heartily recommend the Villa D'Amico in San Leone for anyone who is visiting Agrigento for the ruins. Out of the city itself in a lively beachfront town with its own charms, the villa, which had been the gated summer home of a family now elsewhere, provides immaculate, large comfortable rooms, with excellent bathrooms, on a quiet street off the 'lunghimare' (waterfront). The breakfast was excellent: better than we had had in more expensive places. After some trouble finding the street, we called, and the owner's charming, friendly and intelligent son Eugenio,(who speaks a fair amount of English)came for us in his car and personally led us to the Villa, which is much nicer than it seems in the picture on their website. The Villa proved a better location for getting to the Valle dei Templi than the city of Agrigento would have been. The Villa provides maps, lists of events in the area, and suggestions for restaurants in all price ranges in the area. In the evening, after an excellent dinner, we joined the 'passagiatta' with the many residents and visitors along the pretty, palm-lined waterfront, sampled excellent gelato and had a wonderful night's sleep in the quiet of the Villa. Another plus: we could park our car inside the gated Villa. Terrific place, well worth the price!
Fine place to stay - own bathroom with shower, bidet, etc. clean and fairly recently built? run by very friendly Pier Domenico. Catch bus number 2 from outside Agrigento train station (every 20-30 mins) all the way down to the sea (villa is about a hundred metres back up the hill). Recommended

... 7 socials studies. It is utterly beautiful. I thought that it was one of the most admirable monuments on Sicily.
I counted six temples along the ridge in varying degrees of ruin, some such as the Temple of the Olympian Zeus which even at the peak of the golden age was unfinished, lying mostly on the ground. It is the largest Doric temple ever known with my guide book saying it had an area as large as a football pitch! We ...
... on the patio and couldn't talk with the wind whistling through the trees. It was not a particularly memorable lunch.
The rest of the trip for Larry and therefore for us was uneventful. We had a brief diversion to find some wine and then onto Agrigento where we checked into the hotel amid a tourist bus of 35 Americans, met some Canadians our age biking around Sicily. Now given the traffic in Sicily that is to be admired.
We only had one ...
... and folded every table! Year 8 at a guess, and they reminded me that I'm on long service leave, and it's not my problem! I felt great! Once they alighted, the poor woman conductor, who had avoided coming up my end of the train during the chaos, breathed a clearly audible sigh of relief! It was an interesting 2 1/4 hour trip, heading east of Palermo first, so I saw that lovely coast again, and then turning off to the south, travelling through rocky hills with a few straggly ...
... to visit two of the temples. Both the Temple of Juno and the Temple of Concord date from around 450 BC and are in various states of decay. They are still quite grand and imposing buildings set into a rocky landscape surrounded by olive and almond trees. And while the modern city of Agrigento is clearly visible on the distant valley side you can still get a strong sense of the ancient city set out before you. It was hot though and we were keen to go to a beach on ...
... clients of the place. We tried this new approach, offering to book a room just to store our bags(can you see how desperate we were getting?), but the girl at reception refused to charge us the 100 euro fee. At least she was not that greedy.This, however, gave us an idea. and we returned to hotel #1, and the super-nice guy, with the same proposition. It worked, and even better than we could've hoped! He felt SORRY for us, and said he ...
