A beautifully peaceful escape!
May 2017 • Couples
We spent eight days in this lovely place and enjoyed every minute! Dora, our hostess, was an absolute delight and so charming and welcoming. She always found time to have a chat with us which allowed us to discover that we had a tremendous amount in common and that we shared many interests! Her delightful parents were equally welcoming and were lovely, courteous, old school Italians which is such a pleasure these days! As for the cassata we made with Dora and a super Dutch couple we befriended, well we've not laughed so much for a long time! Francesco, Dora's brother, and all of the staff were equally welcoming and helpful and were very eager to please whenever we had a query. Our room was simple but spacious with everything one could want and we had a pleasant outside area of our own in which to enjoy quite a few glasses (bottles!) of wine. On the subject of wine, we were just a little disappointed that the wine list didn't include a Nero d'Avola, which we were keen to taste, but that was not a major problem! The Limoneto, which they produce, is simply delicious and makes a perfect ending to the evening meal. The food is not haute cuisine but you'd be silly to expect that really. What they do offer is good, homemade, authentic family food, which was exactly what we wanted. Real Sicilian food not fancy, overpriced tourist stuff! Gorgeous! Thank you so much to everyone at the Agriturismo Limoneto for a superb stay. Shelagh and Martin

Dear Shlagh and Martin , thank you so much for this great review! Thank you for underlying that the whole family is involved in welcoming and entertaining the guests. This is a family activity and we enjoy being present at every time , life and personal engagement permitting ! it was a real fun to share a cooking class with you and the Dutch couple . And the cassata we made was delicious! Thank you for appreciating our restaurant ; good homemade food is exactly what we prepare for our guests that want to stay for dinner. As far as wine is concerned , maybe it was over, but we have three different brands of Nero d'Avola on our list . Anyway , there is always time to taste it! i want to thank you for being at Limoneto and hope you will be back some day . Love Dora

Agriturismo Limonetto offers a warm welcome, good meals and an oasis of rural tranquility as a base for exploring Siracusa and southeastern Sicily.

With spacious well equipped rooms surrounded by fragrant lemon groves, friendly staff, cooked to order meals in their adjacent courtyard restaurant, Limonetto is a delight to return to after a day's sightseeing.

Highly recommended.

As a helpful additional service, the charming and elegant Dora warned us about the recent 'broken mirror' scam artists, whereby a car pulls alongside, claims you hit his already broken mirror, and demands 50 Euro.

Solution? Say you'll the Polizia Stradale @113. Ladro sparisci, ie he'll scram, subito.

Lovely setting and accommodations for a visit to Siracusa and other sites in Sicily
Oct 2016 • Couples
My husband and I stayed at Limoneto for three nights in October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Dora was a wonderful host, making us feel welcome and giving us recommendations on what to see in the area, including the Saturday farmer's market in Ortigia which was great. Our room was spacious and included a refrigerator. Dinners were very good. While the menu was limited, it was nice to be able to relax on site in the dining room after a day of sight-seeing. The musical entertainment on Saturday night was fun. There were many places to sit outside on the property including the pool area.

Nice rooms and very good meals
Sep 2016 • Friends
Limoneto is well located for getting to and from Syracuse. After the first (learning) trip, we could make the trip in about 15 - 20 minutes. Rooms were well kept and clean, there is a nice pool, although we never used it--spent our time touring. Breakfasts were basic and dinners had good selection and well cooked meals. Would definitely use this place again if in the area for its good location to archeological sites

Quietness close to archeological sites
Jul 2016 • Family
We went to Limoneto more than once either in winter or in summer and it is perfect in both seasons. The atmosphere is friendly and familiar and the place allows you to appreciate the real sicilian "giardino" ie.citrus together with a comfortable resort thankyou to the cosy swimmingpool!
Rooms are well furnished, clean and with the right temperature depending on the season, the bathroom well equipped as a five star hotel.
Staying there we felt as being hosted by friends thanks to the kindness of Mrs. Dora,who is the owner together with the rest of her family, all of them make you feel at home, a member of their family.
They have a restaurant too where we had our dinner when we did not want to reach the crouded touristic ones down town, preferring to be seated in a cool place.
Last but not least Limoneto is so close to the town that we could easily reach the wellknown Syracuse archeological site and also the nice rocky and sandy sicilian shore, if you have got a car of course!
I always reccomend Limoneto to all my friends who want to visit the eastern side of Sicily.

Great location, great room and great hosts

We stayed for two nights. On arrival we were shown into the farm house reception by Dora who was friendly and welcoming. She explained about the area and then about the accommodation before taking us to our room which faced directly onto the lemon orchard.

The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The bathroom was also spacious and well equipped. There was a minibar in the room. The accommodation has a lovely outdoor pool with sun beds and large sun umbrellas, again all very clean and in good condition.

We ate dinner there both nights and it was wonderful. The food delicious and in great quantity. Dora was attentive to all her guests and gave us some very good advice about sharing dishes simply because of the size of portions. Her brother did the cooking and did it very well. We had anti-pasti, pasta, fish and dessert washed down with local wine. A real treat.

Breakfast was a buffet, different meats on offer with cheese and yogurts available, also fresh fruit. Home made marmalade was also available, made from lemons from the farm.

This accommodation is ideally located for touring the eastern end of Sicily. It is only five minutes from the motorway and a few minutes from Syracuse yet very quiet.

Not good
Apr 2015 • Friends
We were there for lunch the second day of Easter. It was packed! Slow service, the apetisers seemed not fresh, they served lasagna(in sicily for easter???) and another type of pasta that I didnt even dare to try. They borught the "steak", let's call it this way the tiny slice of meat and after 10 minutes they brought the side dishes. For desert they served a slice of cake that I could not figure out. We weren't pleased at all. This is not what you expect from and agriturismo in Sicily!
