This is a small hotel in the centre of the town/village. We were made most welcome and ate in the adjoining pizzeria/restarant. The food is good but exceptionally busy on Saturday evenings, so book on arrival. Slightly difficult to find in a car, so park up and walk. Good value for money. Room was large with good en suite but... More

This guesthouse is well signposted as you drive through the barrow streets if Petralia Sottano. When we arrived we called the number listed on the door (note: the reception desk is not manned) and somebody arrived to check us in within 5 minutes. We were immediately impressed with the room as it was traditional & spacious enough. Spotlessly clean &... More

This is a beautiful hotel. The accompanying restaurant is unforgettable, especially if you arrive for the weekend pizza spectacular. The pizza chef means business and delivers the goods. The event is not to be missed. The whole town (not tourists) fills the restaurant on weekends. Our room number 4 was spacious, modern, and ultra comfortable. With it came this great... More

After a couple of nights in Gangi, at the suggestion of that hotel, we drove over to Petrallia Suttano (not Soprano), and the Il Castello. It's up on top the hill and some care and patience is needed to get to it but once you see the first signpost it's not a problem. We were able to actually back up... More

We stayed here only one night, in November. A beautiful little mountain village, like staying in a castle, the owner very friendly and accommodating. Very quiet. Would liked to have more time here. But we know now it would be a nice place to return to. Great breakfast.

We stayed a couple of nights in late September in this delightful, secluded hotel and were charmed by its beautiful restoration and thoughtful owners and staff. Very pleasant welcome and a most comfortable room, full of character. Delicious breakfasts and excellent dinners in ll Castello's own un-signposted and busy restaurant. Many thanks.

The B&B was in a great location, exceptionally clean, and had friendly staff. It was located in a beautiful town. The room was large and comfortable. We ate at the restaurant on two occasions and it was the best pizza that we ate in Italy. (And, I'm Italian!) We came to this town to cycle in this area. The views... More

Stayed in the hotel while on a walking holiday with friends in the Madonnie. The town is mostly untouched by tourism and the locals were very friendly. Surrounding countryside was beautiful with some great walks. The hotel is built on the remains of a small castle and has been very nicely refurbished to a simple, yet high, standard. Rooms were...

The location was excellent - virtually just below the snowline in Petralia and Piano Battaglia - which one MUST visit in winter! We could not believe we could drive trhough so much snow in Sicily! The rooms are very good - heat pump airconditioners in each room, ensuite bathrooms, good quality furnishing and very clean. Breakfast was good with excellent... More
