Marghertia and Vito run a fantastic agriturismo on the idyllic island of Ustica. We booked the night before, quite late as we'd had to change plans at the last minute, but margherita was charming and helpful. She came to collect us from the port and was extremely helpful in settling us in. The accommodation is simple but perfect, aircon, fridge and a lovely terrace with your own table in a shared area. Just 15 minutes walk to a beautiful swimming spot which has great snorkelling and secluded areas to sunbathe. Take some shoes though as the rocks are quite rough between the bathing areas and the sea.
The agriturismo makes wine and olive oil which are great and you can pick vegetables and herbs from the garden, rocket, basil, tomatoes aubergines and peppers. You can walk into town in 10 minutes if you want to go to a restaurant or you can cook on the BBQ. You can buy fresh fish everyday from the market.
Overall Ustica is amazingly beautiful, fantastic swimming/snorkelling/diving, hibiscus is really great with wonderful hosts. The only reason not to give 5 stars is that it would be nice to have a few extra bits to help cook with so you don't need to buy everything. Coffee, butter, oil garlic that sort of thing, the sort of stuff you wouldn't get through in a week but would be really useful. We probably would have cooked every night we were there(4 nights) if there had been a little welcome pack.
