Franz and Zora are perfect hosts, and have a fantastic house that you are able to share. Without doubt if you are staying there, you should book dinner as well, as the food and wine are of the highest quality, and the aperitif over the Pool table is a great way to relax at the beginning of a holiday
We flew into Trapani, being one of the first flights out of stanstead after the first volcanic ash incident. and having driven across to Pedara, enyoyed our first magnificent pistacchio icecream, while waiting for Franz to show us the the way to Palmento la Posa, as we would never have found it without him.
The rooms are a delight, although the shower pressure could be better. and breakfast is very relaxed, with an option of eating on the terrace, if the weather is fine. Being on the side of Etna, it is cooler in the evenings, which can be a relief from the heat lower down on the coast. This is a real jewel, and when we return to Sicily, this will be a definite on our list of things to do
