5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2006

Many thanks to the two previous reviewers for recommending this gem of a place. It exceeded all expectations. The hospitality, food and general atmosphere at Roccadia were all excellent and, therefore, ten very satisfying days were spent here. We couldn't, I'm sure, have found a better agriturismo on the island. Rooms are rustic and contain a fridge, TV, air/con., very comfortable beds, a good shower and towels were changed on a daily basis. The place was spotlessly clean. All staff were very pleasant and helpful. The food was varied and fresh and was excellent value for money,- as was the wine! The choice at breakfast was also very good. As with the previous reviewer, we were also witness to a large, traditional Sicilian wedding feast which was beautifully laid out around the poolside. Advice was generously given to us on a daily basis regarding places of interest and a paradise of a beach some half an hour away was recommended. This is one place we shall be making every effort to return to.

We chose this place for our last stop in Sicily as convenient to the airport and Siracusa, and it met that objective well -- 30 minutes easy driving to each. But it not just convenient -- it was in many ways more satisfying to stay here than at than many higher priced hotels elsewhere, such as Taormina and Ragusa.

The overall feel of the Tenuta is just great. The hosts and staff were the most friendly we found on our trip, and in Italy that is saying something special indeed. Excellent English and very helpful in planning day trips. The pools are relatively large and well landscaped, and eating the set-course dinner on the terrace was a real treat -- excellent food and wine at a very modest price, and the place was lively and jam-packed entirely with Italians. We even had a festive wedding reception one night, which added to the overall feel of almost being home (or, as stated in a review below, at the very least part of a Fellini film). The rooms are basic, but comfortable and quiet, with fully functional air conditioning and plumbing. We ended up buying large quantities of the local products sold from the farm, and these have made great gifts and generated much envy among our friends at home!

I wanted to have a rural experience on a working farm in Sicily producing its own olive oil and other local products, but with some amenities. Not too rustic. Tenuta di Roccadia looked just like my fantasy. Pink washed walls with grape arbor archways. Beautifully landscaped over 14 hectares and surrounded with olive fields and orange and lemon groves. Flowers everywhere. Two pools, one with small jacuzzi. Sweeping views of the hillsides and Etna off in the distance smoking like a grumbling giant. Rooms are nice and in a separate building about a quarter mile from main buildings providing a leisurely stroll through orange groves to and from meals or pool. No menu at dinner. You sit on a lovely outdoor terrace and they bring you course after course. All good and all fresh local food. Farm is located only about 5 min from the main Catania-Syracusa highway so its very easy to take day trips to all important sites on East coast. Syracusa is less than a half hour as is Noto. Airport in Catania is only 20k. On Sundays the place is open for day visitors so local family groups come out to spend a day in the country lounging about enjoying nature and long huge Sunday dinner. Bocci, swimming and relaxing. I watched voyeuristically for hours and felt like I was in a Fellini film. All good. Check out ------
