We booked here as a last minute stay before an early morning flight based on high reviews and an exceptionally fair price. It was only after arriving that we noticed they call themselves an "Agriturismo". The TripAdvisor map location was incorrect, and our car's GPS did not even see a road, so finding the place was quite difficult until we... More

We arrived here late since we drove directly as soon as we landed. We were greeted by the owners which gave us the keys to our room. Since we were hungry we asked if we could eat something and they were happy to make us something from what they had, since it wasn't possible to choose from the menu, probably... More

Dear noble-taste, there are a few things you could ask from us directly and clarify his doubts. Our farmhouse restaurant is open daily and offers every day a different set menu, offering what the earth offers, following the seasons and availability of fresh goods. That evening we did taste our daily menu. We do not use the a la carte... More

This agriturismo is very difficult to navigate to and from. It is not as close to Fontanarossa as advertised, and it is very easy to get lost and find your schedule in trouble. The food in the restaurant was very good, prepared from mostly locally grown ingredients and quite tasty. The room was just OK, the mattress needed replacing. As... More

Relatively easy to reach, though in the middle of nowhere. Follow the signs after uscita Lentini carlentini. Parking available free. Superb breakfast with cereal cakes and salati cheese and bread, juices coffee, tea etc. Very good restaurant and pizzeria on site. Very reasonably priced.
