My family stayed at Villa Argento for three nights and truly enjoyed our visit.
Our three bedroom apartment was furnished simply but comfortably. AC and WiFi worked well. No problems with electricity or availability of hot water. The property is securely gated and quiet at night.
The grounds are lovely with orange, lemon, and olive trees in abundance. There are multiple spots to sit in the shade. The pool is outstanding, with a fantastic view out to the sea. Super relaxing. A large olive tree provides shade from the intense sun.
Access to the beach is down a rocky path; the water is clean and blue.
The host Francesco is kind, helpful, and accommodating. He suggested a restaurant - Can Caus - which we enjoyed so much, we ate there twice. We truly enjoyed the hospitality of all the Sicilians we encountered.
The villa is just a few minutes' drive from Aspra which has several cafes and restaurants. I highly recommend the excellent and affordable pastries at Lorenzini Cafe. It's a 10 minute drive to the Bagheria FS train station; we took a local train to Palermo Centrale (18 minutes) and the express returned us to Bagheria in 11 minutes!
The only issue that impacted our enjoyment is outside of the control of the Villa; the local roads are lined with "rifiuti" - bags of garbage - which seriously detracts from the beauty of this place. The Comune of Bagheria and Provincia di Palermo must work harder to address this issue.
