The most splendid home and gracious hosts. They gave us water and supplied all the basic necessities to cook. We loved our time that we had there and highly recommend for two or a family. There is an extra room with a double bed and bunk beds, a huge covered porch.. highly recommended.

Giussepe et Tina nous ont accueillis avec une immense gentillesse, tout au long de notre séjour, ils étaient à nos petits soins, lorsque nous avions besoin de quelque chose, ils répondaient à notre demande. De plus la propreté de la maison était irréprochable, la décoration très romantique, le cadre et le point de vue magnifique.
Notre séjour a été mémorable.
Encore merci à GIUSSEPE, TINA et SALVATORE pour leur dévouement.

Piccolo paradiso terrestre!
Sono stata in vacanza in Sicilia durante la prima settimana di Settembre con altri 3 miei amici, ed abbiamo soggiornato in questa bellissima villetta di campagna. Il punto in cui si trova è praticamente molto funzionale per raggiungere i posti più belli della Sicilia. La casa è dotata di tutti i comfort per garantire un sereno e tranquillo soggiorno, l’ambiente è particolarmente curato e soprattutto pulito. E’ circondata da profumati frutteti e da un incantevole vegetazione che dipinge dei panorami unici. Indimenticabili i tramonti e incantevole il cielo stellato che si possono ammirare seduti comodamente nella veranda all’aperto. I proprietari sono molto gentili e disponibili, e in particolare ci hanno dato tanti buoni consigli sulle tipicità enogastronomiche.
Abbiamo trascorso una vacanza bellissima. Location consigliatissima!!!
