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

A lovely place to stay among the tranquil wheat field. Pigeons, chickens, wild flowers everywhere. The owner, Francesco, besides being extremely friendly and helpful, is a very gentile and interesting guy. He cooked us huge portion of breakfast every morning and remembered everything we liked.

I wandered into this place off the road and was lucky enough to land a room for the night. God grant that I someday have a month at Villa Quartarella. The host is learned and quietly enthusiastic about his land, history and surrounding nature, and wants you to enjoy yourself. The rooms are large and comfortable. It is near several... More

A wonderfull set of rooms built and then restored in the country style by Francesco a farmer and nature lover . A little south of Modica on top oh a hill - 'you can see Malta on a clear day'. Our host provides excellent information on history, nature, beaches, ice cream and restaurants, childrens itineries, anything Sicillian. For birdwatchers then... More

When arriving here last week, the only words I could find were "I have arrived in paradise" and I was not wrong or disappointed. The warm welcome, the copious breakfast with fresh eggs from the hens, including the large ones of naughty Federica who likes to wander beyond her boundaries, the great tips and advice about places to go, the...

Quartarella is in a beautiful location and the facilities are excellent. Francesco was extremely helpful in providing advice and directions, as well as info on the local flora, fauna and history. Breakfast was excellent too.

Francesco has created this elegant farmhouse; a labor of love and authentic Sicilian home. Everything is beautiful from the stone floors and walls to the woven ceilings and fireplaces. He grew up just next door and knows everything about the region, including where to find parking in small villages, and what entrance at the nature preserve is the most convenient.... More

We arrived here without a booking and were lucky to get the last room for two nights. The room was beautifully decorated and spacious but very cold - being very high it took a long time for the room to warm up. However the warmth of the owners made up for this. The breakfasts were delicious with fresh eggs both... More
