Located in a small town about 30 miles from Catania, with great views of the countryside. A car is probably essential, though driving in Sicily can be an 'interesting experience' for drivers from other European countries such as the UK. There is plenty of free parking at the hotel. The hotel has large, though basic, clean rooms. The rooms all have air conditioning, which is vital in August. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is fine. The week I was there had a private function on six of the seven nights, but this did not disturb me in any way. The best asset is the swimming pool. It is large, clean and in a great setting with plenty of sun loungers.
