I have stayed at Tarantola three times now, and each time had a very different experience from the one described below. I went to Tarantola because I wanted to be in the countryside. It is in the most beautiful location - the hills all around are a rich green in season, even in the hot summer, and golden out of... More

Their website is stunning, but we didn't feel this agriturismo quite lived up to our expectations. Fillip is a wonderful host, and the area is quite beautiful, but be aware, it is very remote, so if you drink wine with your evening meal (I mean, this IS Italy!) you probably will be staying home for that. The rooms are basic... More

Filippo T, Proprietario at Agriturismo Tarantola, responded to this review

My website is amazing? No - it is minimal, like my rooms. Unfortunately, your review, while praising my staff (and I thank you for that), contains a couple of inaccuracies. It is true that when you arrived there was a group of 50 people at the farm. A Hungarian television company had asked me to do a report on Sicilian... More

We loved our short time at Tarantola. Only had time to stay two nights but filled the time with wonderful memories of walking to the top of the vineyards to take in the beautiful views, helping to harvest the olives then going with the charismatic owner Filippo to see the oil making process, drinking the delicious Nero d'avola and Cabernet...

My husband and I stayed three very pleasant nights at Tarantola. I don't even know where to begin with my compliments! On our first night we arrived late due to unforeseen traffic and Filippo was still there to greet us with a smile. His staff still happily served us a late dinner. The following day we participated in their cooking... More

This was the meal I was hoping to share with my husband. I studied in Italy a long time ago and remember very fondly the way the program brought us right to the homes of people who were working on farms and making delicious foods. At Agriturismo Tarantola, I got to relive the feeling of being welcomed as if we... More

we stayed at this Agriturismo for one night, but we could easily have stayed there for more! Location: go to Alcamo town, take the CampoReale road, then you will see a sign for Tarantola. take this decent road and then you have the last 300 meters on country road. Setting: the setting cannot be better; an agriturismo/farm in the middle... More

We love everything about Agriturismo Tarantola ! Fillipo the owner is lovely, nothing is too much trouble. From rescuing us with a flat tyre, getting it fixed for us so we can Just enjoy our stay. All organic food, our own private chef whipping up whatever takes our fancy. Taking walks through the vineyards, eating fruit directly off the trees... More
