“Web sites can be deceiving.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I regret to say we arrived at Il Granaio and were shown to our room which was small, dark and tired perhaps as it was the end of the season. The owner was not very welcoming and were shown where the trolley was for our cases - having driven for 6 hours it would have been nice to have them taken to our room. We were then told the pool was not available due to an equipment problem and dinner was 8.30 with no offer of any refreshment. Generally speaking the whole place was a poor representation of what was shown and photographed on the website so I am afraid after a couple of hours we put our cases in the car and told the owner we were leaving as it was not up to our expectations - unfortunately he made no comment and did not enquire why we were unhappy. I know we made the right decision and only wish the website had not embellished what seems to be a basic spa property.

Room Tip: As we did not stay here it would be unfair to give any tips and can only report on what we found on...

Just returned from a fantastic stay at Il Granaio. The hosts are friendly and the 4 course meals were amazing. Everything is home made and locally sourced. Breakfast was yummy. The pool was always clean as were our rooms. There are lots of things to see in the area but you do need a car. We would love to return and recommend it as a place to stay.

I must say my family and I had such a wonderful time at Il Granaio. The host is such a wonderful person and made us feel at home from the very start. The location is central and beautiful. The rooms are beautifully decorated and everywhere is so clean. The food was excellent especially the home-made pasta!! How can I not mention the Spa situated underground... beautiful and so relaxing... This place is really PARADISE!! I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to get away for a couple of days !! Thank you Giovanni and all the team for making us feel at home. We will definitely be visiting again soon!

It was our first holiday in Sicily and surely we have no regrets choosing Il Granaio. First of all the hosts are so friendly you immediately feel at home. The location is beautiful in the outskirts of Modica countryside and one can enjoy pleasant walks in the morning before breakfast. This agriturismo is ideal if one wants to visit south Sicily. The rooms are immaculately clean and very comfortable. We had our children with us so we opted for a double room but if you are a couple I recommend booking a suite overlooking the pool - it's very romantic and comes with a large jacuzzi. The food was excellent. The breakfast has a nice selection of rolls and freshly sliced local hams and cheeses,cereals, fresh seasonal fruit, juices and typical sweet pastries. If you are lucky you get to taste real almond milk... divine! You can opt for the evening meals for 22 euro per person. Mamma Concetta takes care to vary the menu daily and uses the freshest of ingredients using the products the family grow themselves. One can see the passion and dedication in every dish. I must not forget to mention the pool area which our children really enjoyed and of course there's the spa. It's relatively new and it offers a number of treatments, reasonably priced. It was a wonderful experience at Il Granaio and we can't wait to visit again!

We spent 4 nights at this very welcoming Agriturismo, the owners are very helpful and easy. Initially we thought of spending one night only before we drove further west in Sicily but we loved the surroundings and stayed 4 nights in total. The food was very good also and the breakfast wholesome. We took walks around the area, it has beautiful country roads all around. Thank you for making our holiday a little more special.

We are halfway through our week at Il Granaio and enjoying it very much. It is a very relaxing place, we have a lovely room and the food is excellent - we have decided to have dinner here every evening. We plan to post a more complete review after we get home, but we felt we had to put on record our thanks for the unexpected and very kind help from the owner when we had a problem with our hire car yesterday. We had problems making contact with the company, but Giovanni did it for us and helped to arrange an exchange for a new car. He also gave up his time to make sure we got to the right place and ensured that everything was explained to the rental agent. We felt completely looked after and very grateful for this kindness. And now we have a new car and we are looking forward to another delicious home-cooked dinner this evening and 3 more days in the Val di Noto.

Room Tip: We are in the suite and, as we are here for a week, it is good to have the extra space and private b...

Wonderful place to stay; beautiful location, great rooms and very friendly hosts. Nice breakfast and if you're interested a good dinner is served by the owners.

We happened upon this wonderful place by accident (and a little help of our friends TripAdvisor and Agriturismo.it).

Only risk is you might end up exploring less of the region than you thought, because the place is just too good to leave!
