In Sicily, Petralia Sottana PA, is off the beaten path, but is a place that will give you much pleasure. We were visiting friends who took us to Il Castello for a tour of the hotel and pizza dinner. The hotel has been restored with great attention to every detail and the quality of our meal was excellent. I ordered... More

What a lovely treasure. The hotel is spotless with lovely beds and more than enough space. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly staff. The village is easy to explore and we had the best Pizza ever. The hotel restaurant is superb with a menu filled with the freshest dishes, executed to perfection. Would love to return.

We stayed for 3 nights at this lovely hotel. The welcome was warm and friendly, the room was large and spotless, and breakfast was more than adequate. If you can, plan your stay over the weekend so that you can experience their restaurant which opens on Friday night. The setting is amazing, local specialties and traditional Italian food and an...

Very large comfortable rooms in a perfect location in the centre of the village. The hotel has real character - it may not be an old castle, but it gives all the appearances of one. A very good huge meal, and the pizzas are good too. For breakfast, you have to like cake! Looked after us well.

Beautiful view in the most amazing mountains outside of Switzerland. Amazing and friendly staff especially the exuberant girl who runs breakfast. They've got a real steal there! Feels like a family run business in a medieval Sicilian town. I wish them all the luck in the world. Go and give them your money

I stayed at Il Castello as part of a walking tour of the Madonie Park in Sicily. The location in Petralia Sottana is perfect for exploring the mountains. From our arrival, the staff were pleasant and helpful and made our stay enjoyable. Our room (no4) was spacious and well furnished and had its own terrace with a large picnic table.... More

We arrived here in the mid-morning after an overnight train journey from Rome, to a warm welcome. Our room was on one of the higher floors, which involved a bit of huffing and puffing (did not matter in the least as we were on a walking trip), since there is no elevator. Room itself was large and airy, looking out... More

Access: On arriving in the town there are signs to 'Il Castello' but these are somewhat deceptive! It took us half an hour to find parking next to it. The town has a one way system of sorts, the streets are incredibly steep, cobbled and very narrow. If you have hired anything bigger than a Fiat Panda then you may... More

Room 3 was very spacious with open fire for November and balcony overlooking rooftops of this delightful mountain village with spectacular views. Parking is a challenge so park in Piazza Duomo just below, We loved it only stayed a night but would happily have stayed on to walk and explore.

Il Castello is a lovely hotel situated in petralia sottana. The room was extremely comfortable with a beatiful view of the mountains. In the morning, the breakfast was suberb with a wide assortment of freshly baked breads and pastries. Dinner was simply amazing, typical sicilian food not to be missed. We were very happy to be here and we certaintly... More
