We stayed here in October 2013. The street and entrance to the apartment were a little disconcerting but don't be put off. The apartment is lovely. It's a 10-minute walk to the centre of Agrigento which is a really nice city. Not touristy (despite the temples) and very laid back.
We stayed there at the weekend so we were looked after by Antonia, the most charming hostess. She was so warm and kind to us and our baby daughter. I think during the week her husband serves the breakfast, but as it was we had two wonderful breakfasts with Antonia and enjoyed long conversations with her (thanks to my boyfriend's reasonable Italian, otherwise it would have been more difficult as Antonia doesn't speak English but don't let that put you off as she's very communicative and no doubt manages just fine). Antonia goes out to a selection of local bakeries every morning and chooses delicious Sicilian pastries. Everything is carefully served on beautiful antique glassware. Sounds like a minor detail but it was lovely.
We stayed in the end room with a breathtaking view of the Valley of the Temples. Ask for that room if you can. Seriously mind-blowing. Great bathroom with a bathtub and shower.
If you are looking to meet a warm and generous Sicilian hostess and stay in a beautiful apartment, this is the place for you. I actually feel quite nostalgic about our days with her! She was so sweet to our baby girl too.
By the way, she recommended going to the temples at sunset, and it was a great idea. Very atmospheric.
