This is a truly stunning converted monastery with breathtaking views that is a gem yet to be utilised. Rooms are week furnished but lack a/c and modern comforts expected. The few staff seem out of their depth in a quasi abandoned structure. It definitely needs more investment at which point I would definitely return. ... But not until that happens

An exciting mountain pass drive rewards you with spectacular views down to the coast from this beautifully restored old monastery. Sadly the restoration did not take the comfort needs of guest into much account. The spartan room was spacious but no TV, no WiFi, no phone, no A/C and a small window with a broken bug-screen for ventilation. The bed... More

This huge property sits above Avola and has far, far reaching views which will be pointed out by the two extremely helpful women who greet guests on their arrival. The pride in the building, a skillfully restored old convent/monastery complete with chapel, is evident in every word and gesture. The staff exude warmth, hospitality and genuine love for what they... More

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The room and ensuite were comfortable and clean, and ours had a marvellous view down to Avola and the sea. The breakfasts were good with good croissants and preserves and the usual cooked meats and cheese. On one day there were delicious little pastries as well. The staff were very helpful, informative and... More

We took a tour of Sicily and I'm glad now that this was only our second lodging of the visit as it turned out to be fairly disappointing. We managed without TV (lovely) and AC (harder in the second bedroom which had to be kept closed as there wasn't a mosquito net on the window.) The approach was fairly difficult... More
