We traveled the end of may through Sicily and because of the low season we just passed by without a reservation and became a fair offer for three nights in a 3 persons bungalow and a remote control for the gates. Furnishing, decoration, colors of our room were both tasteful and rural. The quality of the matrasses could be beter, for my wife a little bit to hard and you could feel the spiral a little bit. We solved it with an extra blacket under it. The resort is beautiful situated between fields of lemon trees. Noto and Syracuse nearby. We loved the tranquillity and the simple, tasteful design of the complex, swimming pool. The female owner speaks English well. We dined once in the diningroom, that is very basis with plastic chairs, and sound of the radio from the kitchen in the background. The quality was good, very tasteful, only the wine was not what we expected. We didn’t drink it. I guess it wass self made and tasted a little bit like Vermouth. We should have asked the owner about it. Breakfast with many fresh, sweet stuff, was ok.The staff is very nice and helpfull. The nearby city of Avola is not very special, also the beach. They were renovating the boulevard along the beach. We visited twice a fine excellent restaurant in the neighbourhood ‘Porto Matto’, recommended by the owner of the resort.
