At our arrival the man of the house took up our luggage in no time, and the lady of the house welcomed us correctly: we asked for wholemeal bread and no problem: i will bake it for you.
But then: the bathroom is so small you're with your face up to the shower cabin wall if you're on the toilet :(
Letting stuff out of the cupboards is no option: the lady (or her cleaning staff) put everything away, so at your return of a trip a search party can start to find back your stuff. :)
Two days later: no baked bread anymore (because we didn't eat the complete bread before?) ... and overall the atmosphere was not one of great joy.
In my opinion: a smile costs nothing.
So for the man of the house: 4 stars. For the lady: a star less.
If you're not keen of talking to strangers: do not start a B&B.
And Caltagirone itself has ONE big problem : it's plenty, really plenty, of pigeons. And they smell.
