It's a small family run bed and breakfast that feels secluded and on a beautiful estate that grew oranges. There was also a pool, but during our stay, it was still drained as it was early May. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly, and they were very helpful with any questions we had. Any meals that are prepared, such... More

Make sure you have your own transport if you book this place - the driveway is a 2 min drive. The place is peaceful - the pool was being filled when we arrived and it took a day and a half to be filled - we used it but the water was freezing. The room was clean - although we... More

Nice little oasis to end touring days of the Baroque towns of SE Sicily. Adequate facilities with a nice pool. Welcoming, friendly and pleasant hosts. Central wifi but not in the rooms. Then again, if you stay here no constant wifi is a bonus.

Chose this place for a short 2 night break during a cycling holiday. Found the place easily as it is very well sign posted even though it is in a quiet rural area of Avola. It was a good base to explore the surroundings including Cava Grande. Since we were there in low season no breakfast or meals were offered,... More

We arrived at La Petrara "Resort" which we were able to find very easily, as directions on the roadway are clearly marked, however, at reception, sort of a "room" cluttered with a child's swing, ironing board, toys as well as a Great Dane who slobbers all over my husband's clothes, we met the hosts. Their reception desk is a plastic... More

We stayed for 10 nights at the end of July. We loved it! Pure relaxation in the lemon groves. Room had plenty of space, good air conditioning and a great shower - what more could you want? We went out most days, plenty to see and do in the area, we found a beautiful beach about 30 minutes away. The... More

The Petrara Resort is a charming agriturismo resort in Avola. During our stay there, there were no wandering farm animals except for a couple of cats. The pool is really big and kept clean and kids have plenty of room to wander about and play. We had a quadruple room which was quite spacious and very clean with quite comfortable... More

We traveled the end of may through Sicily and because of the low season we just passed by without a reservation and became a fair offer for three nights in a 3 persons bungalow and a remote control for the gates. Furnishing, decoration, colors of our room were both tasteful and rural. The quality of the matrasses could be beter,... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Petrara Resort and I can just say it is an Oasis. You have everything you need as the rooms are great, a pool and an area which is surrounded by Orange trees...just wonderful. The breakfast was a local italian breakfast and was always enough for us as this is what we have been looking... More
