If you like lots of hairpin bends and being away from it all this might be for you. Friendly host even if he was only present in morning. We were the only ones staying there. Rooms were a good size but damp. Cats were persistent and noisy. It was cheap but I wouldn't book again.

Expect a fair value for the money you pay. The room we got was big, a bit grandma's style but clean. What we really loved was the garden and the view, amazing! The breakfast was a bit of everything, fresh and tasty products, delicious croissants and bread. Considering the acces to Larosadelmare is fair to mention that is far away... More

The first thing I noticed upon our arrival was the incredible view of the ocean and neighboring town . It was very clean and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The owner Pippo is very friendly and speaks english very well. He went out of his way to make everyone happy and comfortable. I plan on returning to this place and... More

Friendly staff, beautiful view, free wifi. Amazing road and of course a hospitable sicilian family. Highly recommended for those who seek quiet and peaceful place to stay, combined with a great taste of devine nature and high altitude air.

Was taking a ferry to a couple of the Ionian islands for a day and the people we were visiting found this place for us online. Difficult to get to but absolutely outstanding. Room was fine but secondary to the views. Took a walk up the road to watch a spectacular sunset, got to see where and how some locals... More

To say that this hotel was amazing, would be true, but also it would be true to say that this hotel is horrible. It depends, what you are looking for. First the good things: hotel is situated on a steep hill overlooking sea, view is fantastic. It is really peaceful haven, if you just want to sit in the garden... More

even though we arrived at pitch dark, we had no trouble to find this quite remote place. In the morning we had a great view on the coast and islands. Host is a very nice person, speaks English and is very helpful to indicate things worth to do around. Ha called and fixed for us a visit in a local... More

We booked this mainly based on price - it was one of the cheapest places we could find on the whole Island, but it would be worth a whole lot more than the asking rate. It is located on a hill side overlooking the sea and is on a tiny road that you could easily mistake as someone's driveway so... More
