Vecchia Masseria was a highlight of our entire 8 weeks in Italy. The old farm buildings are beautifully restored and the rooms are a lesson in elegant simplicity. The garden and pool areas are just beautiful. Do not miss the dinner - it will be the best 28 euros you spend in Sicily! The menu includes a lovely variety of... More

Of the 8 locations we stayed at during our tour of the island, this was our favourite. Heavenly location, in quiet countryside ( though approx 10-12 miles from Caltagirone). Restored building in honey coloured stone, surround by pots of geraniums , lush trees and gardens. Family run, with friendly efficient staff, most of whom spoke good English. The restaurant was...

Fantastic hotel set in a working farm, about an hour and a half from Catania airport. Fabulous views from the outdoor hot tub and pool. Room a good size and clean, with the unusual touch of a nesting box set into the wall below our window, sadly empty at this time of year. Quad bikes are available to hire to... More

Beautiful agriturismo. Lovely pool and seating area in the garden. Very good comfortable rooms with modern bathroom. Very friendly, helpful staff. Set menu but fantastic food made with home grown produce. Four course meal for half board plus extras. Breakfast very generous, also. Children's area plus animals. Don't be put off by access along unmade road. It isn't difficult and... More

This review is long overdue, but I really feel it needs to be written, even if it has been some months since we visited this place. We went here two times. Once in october 2014, when I went here with my wife to prepare for a visit with the staff of my company. At easter 2015 (april) we went here... More

This hotel, once we found it, is miles up a terrible dirt track I suggest hiring a 4x4! We used it as a base whilst touring around other parts of South East Sicily. Our room was quite ordinary. We had booked a superior room but the staff said "superior" just meant it was on the first floor! It was clean... More

Set back 2 km from the road this converted farm has everything you want for a short or longer stay. The bed was comfortable, the swimming pool small but lovely and breakfast great. We had dinner at the restaurant. Antipasta wonderful but menu set with no choice. Wifi poor due to the area.

I can't thank the staff at the hotel enough for making us feel so welcoming and part of the family. Food was first class. Four courses and different on each of the 7 nights we ate there. Breakfast choice was fantastic. Great place to sit back, relax and enjoy the wonderful views.

Even though was a set menu food was excellent, probably best ever had in any hotel. Staff were very helpful and attentive with nothing being too much trouble. It is in a lovely location - but is very remote, 40 minutes to nearest town so nowhere else to go in evening.

This is a unique hotel, off the beaten track, with super breakfast/four course evening meals, and atmospheric manor house/converted barn style rooms, courtyard, and patio/pool area. Most of the food is home grown and organic. Has its own mini farm "zoo" including goats that climb trees. A great base to visit nearby stunning historic buildings/mosaics/beaches. Staff couldn't have been more... More
