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
