Relatively easy to reach, though in the middle of nowhere. Follow the signs after uscita Lentini carlentini. Parking available free. Superb breakfast with cereal cakes and salati cheese and bread, juices coffee, tea etc. Very good restaurant and pizzeria on site. Very reasonably priced. One can also venture to nearby carlentini by car for cheaper pizzerie and other culinary options.... More

We had booked this agriturismo for a night to give ourselves a comfortable base and a means of storing our luggage safely while we waited for a late night flight. We arrived shortly after 10 am, hoping to just leave our bags while we went sightseeing and were delighted to be told that the room was ready. The bungalows are... More

I was completely surprised by the place. Very good restaurant food, room comfort and cleaness, the quantity of farm animals that were there for kids fun, the natural high quality products available ( natural soap, hooney), the site itself is very well trated, the swiming pool very nice, the localisation couldn't be better ( 10 min from the beach, 15...

This was our third "agriturismo" we were visiting on Sicily, and what a disappointment!!!! Compared to the other two, this place is an upgraded trailer park!!!! This is not what you expect when you plan to stay at an agriturismo. This place is next to a highway, and the area looks like an dirty industrial area and. not the nature... More

Dear Katharina And we are sure that you have been in our house? We can't accept your review because it isn't right. The Garden of the Sun is a 1600 farmhouse renovated in 2010. Maybe the language does not help us but Farm means business accommodation in a farming. The windows are the original and permitted by the frame, masonry,... More

We spent four days in heaven. I can safely say this. We were a party of 12 adults and three little kids who spent their days playing with three little kittens, swinging at the swings and splashing in a well sized pool. We also had some particular culinary needs who we're attended to without any nays or says. The food... More

We started our Sicilian holiday in Il Giardino del Sole, primarily because of its proximity to Catania Airport (20 mins) and to Mount Etna and Siracusa (both about one hour's drive). Having read many positive reviews, our expectations were high - and they were fully met. Our rooms were spotless and were cleaned every day. The food was excellent and... More
