A perfect host

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful, authentic Sicilian retreat with few animals this is the place. The house has beautiful, original features and retro furniture. The garden is large and has loads of herbs, lemon trees and other stunning plants. It's is quiet location but close to Avola, Noto, Siracusa and few pretty beaches. However it is not only the house that was excellent but mostly our fantastic host Corrado. He is one in a million! A perfect host, his hospitality and generosity knows no boundaries. We are truly grateful for a fantastic stay and have no hesitation recommending and hopefully returning.

Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay at the Farmhouse. It's a big property and you can sit and eat outside between lemon and olive trees. Each room has its own cozy and creative design. From the pool you have a great view at the sea. The host Corrado is a really nice and helpful person. He gave us good tips and information about interesting places you can visit in the region. We enjoyed the company of the cats and the dog Spillo.

Sicilian Sizzler

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in the villa. Our two sons, aged 8 & 10, loved the pool, playing with the dog and cats, and climbing the big old olive tree.

Corrado, the owner, comes every day to feed the animals and often brought us some local specialities as a treat. He also gives you loads of information about the surrounding area, including the best places to eat and drink. Unfortunately, a week wasn't long enough to see all of the sights...

The local beach is great and only 5 minutes away so we managed to get a swim in the sea most mornings or evenings.

The villa is full of charm and very clean. Plumbing in the area is a bit of an issue so you can't flush toilet paper down the toilet. This took a bit of getting used and if I was going back, I'd take a box of sanitiary bags with me.

Thanks for a lovely holiday Corrado, we hope to see you and Spillo again!

If you are stressed from work and everyday life just stay a week in Corrados charming farm house.

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples who stayed a week in Corrados modernized farm house, and we really enjoyed it. Corrado took great care of us from the moment we arrived in Avola. He took his time to tell us about all from where to go, what to see, beautiful paradise beaches and where to shop or eat. Coming home from exploring the beautiful cities around Avola it was just wonderful to jump in the pool and then relax in the garden among flowers, lemontrees and herbs. In the evening we sat on the terrace playing cards while Spillo and cats played around us. We have one little suggestion to make this an absolute heaven: Two more sunbeds and a parasol by the pool😉👍😘

If Heaven was a place on earth......

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed `a three night stay here and would highly recommend using this location as a base for travelling the East side of Sicily. The accommodation is stunning and the plot idyllic. The facilities were spotless and well-equipped. Extra bonuses were: A great herb garden, Spillo the Dog AKA Scooby Doo and the friendly cats ! Last but by no means least the owner Corrado is an absolute star - gave up 3 hours to discuss what to see, where to eat and responded to any questions within 5 minutes. All in all a fantastic holiday.....see u soon Spillo !!!
