A great welcome to this rural hotel, being given luscious home-made cake to nibble while the receptionist explained how to drive into Siracuse/Ortigia, handing us useful maps and recommendations of the best tourist sights, as well as advice on where to park. If you don't fancy driving yourself into town, I noticed that they do offer transport for a small charge, which could be useful in the high season.
Our comfortable room was across the attractive courtyard, with an outlook towards the elegantly-shaped swimming pool fringed with orange trees.
The staff were absolutely delightful, and adept at remembering from one day to the next our preferences for fizzy water with dinner, or special coffee at breakfast. Meals were taken in the first-floor restaurant, across a courtyard (stairlift provided for the less mobile). Good quality dinner, with sensibly limited number of choices; breakfast included freshly squeezed orange juice, delicious coffee, and cooked dishes, as well as the usual huge range of Sicilian sweet pastries.
Games room with football table, ping-pong etc, and extensive grounds around the cloverleaf-inspired swimming pool.
Lovely place; wish we could have stayed longer.
Be sure to print out the driving directions from the hotel website before you leave home; you'll never find it without them!
