Combine Francesco's congenial personality and hospitality with a stunning, converted farmhouse in a wonderful setting and you get the best experience for accommodation in Sicily. Breakfasts were superb with Francesco holding daily court with his guests and keeping us all amused with his humorous banter and anecdotes. The B&B, once you learn how to find it, is well-located for day... More

We stayed three nights here and truly enjoyed Francesco's hospitality and lovely B&B. The rooms are large and spotlessly clean and the grounds are beautiful with flowers, grape vines, fruit trees all around. Villa Quartarella is a fantastic home base from which to explore nearby towns and a wonderful retreat to return to. Francesco is informative and really helpful, speaking... More

Highly recommend this rural and characterful accommodation. A great base to explore the landmarks of the Baroque Triangle and only a 15-20 minutes drive to the beautiful town of Scicli stunningly situated in a gorge. Francesco was a wonderful host and could not have been more helpful in terms of restaurant tips and advice. The breakfast room experience was made... More

All the wonderful things others have written about Francesco and his beautiful B&B are true. He is a beautiful person and one truly feels like you are staying in his home. Our stay there is a great memory of Sicilian warmth and hospitality! I expect we will return someday.

Our 2-night stay at Villa Quartarella in Modica was one of our highlights in Sicily. It is charmingly rustic, peaceful and calming with an ancient farmhouse-like feel. The rooms however have been tastefully renovated with modern amenities. Ours was a large room (particularly by Italian standards), a comfortable bed, a great hot shower and equipped bathroom, with an upstairs loft.... More

We stayed at Quartarella for 5 nights at the beginning of July. It came highly recommended & didn't disappoint. We will return! Francesco is the perfect host; passionate about his country & caring for the countryside around his property. He has thoughtfully renovated farm buildings creating 4 guest rooms, a farmhouse kitchen/dining room & lounge all overlooking the courtyard, small... More

An old estate, renovated with style and love to details. Breakfast/dining room available to all guests, including fridge, kitchen, books, magazines... Francesco will help with advice and whatever you would like to know about the region. Also home made breakfast sweets are delicious.

It comes as no surprise that Villa Quarterella has won the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame again this year, making it 5 years straight. All the reviews below speak for themselves. Best you book now & experience it all for yourself. Thanks again F&F for the great time. Ciao Jock

You cannot help but feel welcomed and at home at beautiful Quartarella which is mostly down to Francesco. The funny stories about his dogs, the interesting information about the area, the restaurant tips etc. make your stay feel more personal. It is as if you are visiting friends rather than staying in a B&B. Entertaining guests and looking after them... More

We wanted to have a bucolic experience in a Sicilian farmhouse and could not have been happier. After our unfortunate experience in Residenza del Reginale in Siracusa, we wanted to make sure this would be special and it was. Perfect service, divine breakfast and lovely owners! Thanks Francesco and Federica
