Interaction with guests
Both Agostino and I attend to our guests personally. Before their arrival we both see to it that the apartment is in perfect order. We meet them at the apartment regardless of their time of arrival. From the time they land and throughout their sojourn we keep in touch through AIRBNB messages. I make sure they know that they can count on us. We live nearby ready to offer any assistance, above all to assure you a pleasant Sicilian holiday but the same time , we respect our guests' privacy.

I was born in New York, grew up in Manila, studied in Madrid and Perugia and finally settled down here in Mascali, my husband's hometown. Agostino (a retired middle school professor) and I have been living here since we were married in 1969. Our three adult kids live not too far away from us so we often get together along with our three grandkids. Ever since I can recall we have always hosted family and friends from abroad. These were all rewarding years which always bring back pleasant memories. Today, we get even more satisfaction offering our apartments to guests in search of a home away from home. Since we ourselves love traveling we know what it means to be guests in another land. I love Sicily and I know you too will just fall in love with "our enchanting island in the sun" and even more, the warm-hearted Sicilians. "A presto!" ( See you soon!)
