Excellent family run BnB with a helping and friendly staff! It is ideally located between interesting places to visit close by (by car!) But stille in a relaxed small town right at The Beach. Rooms are spacious and clean with a small balcony. There is a beautiful garden to have breakfast and to relax. You can even park your car... More

very accommodating english speaking owner, B&B as you wish for and even better than described, super location by the sea with private garden and super secure. We arrived at 2 o'clock in the morning after missing our flight, but still got a very warm welcome and were treated to a later than normal breakfast with homemade jams and freshly made... More

Three friends and I stayed here for two nights in early May of this year during our European tour. This was by far our favorite place to stay! The family is wonderful, very warm and welcoming, the place was spotless and constantly being cleaned by their equally as warm and wonderful cleaning staff. The garden and rooms were beautiful with... More

A really well positioned small B&B overlooking the beach. Rooms have small terraces and although they do not face west, they remain a good place to feel the sun go down at the end of a long day. Avola is quite interesting for exploring this part of Sicily. Breakfast is served in the garden and is adequate. The staff are... More

Lovely place to stay. Clean, quiet and right on the beach. Very friendly service and delicious breakfasts that are served in the garden-terrace overlooking the sea. It is easy to get to and the hosts were very helpful before our arrival and during our stay. Definitely recommended for people who want to explore Noto and Siracusa.

We spent the last three nights of our honeymoon at La Terrazza Sul Mare, owned by a charming and friendly family. Upon learning it was our honeymoon, Salvo – who speaks English well – immediately upgraded us for free to a room with a terrace when we arrived, as it was low season (October). Despite it being low season, it... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights here, and had a fantastic time. The son who helps to run the place was very welcoming, with lots of suggestions of what to see and where to eat. As we arrived mid afternoon, the 1st thing we did was head to the beach, which via a private access was only 1... More

We arrived in Avola in May looking for some peace and quiet after a hectic couple of days in Catania - and we found it. With an idyllic garden - palm trees and bananas - right next to the sea, the Terrazza sul Mare is run by a charming family, who all partcipate and who do everything to make you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The B&B La Terrazza sul Mare has been hosting people from around the world since 2005 and It's now the benchmark in the south-east sicily accomodation giving both the typical sicilian family hospitality and the facilities of a common hotel. The place is located by the sea having access direct to the beachside. From the garden Terrace people can admire all the bay from Avola to the extreme south point of Sicily, Portopalo. The breakfast is very important for us, and we try to serve all organic fruit from our farm, preparing fresh jams and 'granita', or the winter-spring fresh orange juice; when it's not possible we select only local food. At the B&B you will be able to go kayaking, training in our private Gym, or just enjoy the beautiful sicilian sun in the garden. Still the place is a great start point to visit south east sicily, in few-minute drive you can reach Siracusa, Noto, Marzamemi, Cavagrande (the canyon), Portopalo and many more places...We are waiting for you! ... more   less
