Molto accogliente

  • 5 of 5

Un monolocale perfettamente equipaggiato di tutto. Molto accogliente, consigliato per due persone. Panorama superbo di Petralia sottana e ampio spazio esterno dove potere organizzare un barbecue e prendersi il sole. Un ringraziamento a Calogero che ci ha accolto donandoci una bottiglia di vino rosso e una di olio di produzione propria. Consigliato.
