Reviewed 23 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The photos of this apartment do not quite do it justice! It's very comfortably fitted out and the large balcony gives wonderful views over the roof tops and the network of small alleyways. While relaxing on the balcony, it's very pleasant to hear locals chatting among themselves while preparing their meals outside. Although it's a fairly steep climb up to the apartment, it's enjoyable nevertheless because you meander through alleyways lined with flowers and plants and you get very friendly greetings from the locals along the way. The kitchen was very well equipped, an added bonus for us as we enjoy cooking. The bedroom had a good king size bed and the bathrooms were good with lots of hot water and a good shower. The owner gave us good directions for finding the apartment and very helpfully allowed us to arrive late in the evening. We would highly recommend La Sostra di Minerva as an excellent place to stay and relax in and we definitely hope to return next year.

Reviewed 28 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed in Gabriella apartment in Scicli in June for 9 days. The apartment itself is not so bad, although it's getting a bit tired and was not very clean but the most interesting part of it is the balcony where we stayed most of the time. The problem with the balcony was that it's very badly furnished, two sunbeds, one broken and the other torn so not usable, the rest uncomfortable chairs or benches. But the biggest problem we had was with the Wifi which you rent with the apartment. It only worked for a day and a half in the beginning and when I complained to Gabriella nothing happened for a day but finally it was working again and then only for a day. When I complained to Gabriella I got no response and even though I sent her some 5 messages she never replied to them. For this reason we were out of any interenet connection for the last 4 days of our stay which means a huge phone bill for us. Not replying to my messages shows what kind of a woman Gabriella is so don't trust her...

Management response:

Anna send me the pictures of how you left the house. Are you use to livelike this?
