“Heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Beautiful house, grounds, swimming pool (wow) and food - this would agriturismo would get full marks if not for the mozzies! Although a net was provided for over the bed we still had quite a problem with them in the room and bathroom and they were evidently procreating at a rapid rate during the day. Still a wonderful place and highly recommend for seclusion and romance but the local town is quite devoid of character (strange for Sicily). Take care with directions - the bridge it speaks about is basically a small flyover and while well signposted from the East end the signs for Casa di Melo coming from the west are quite confusing.

La Casa di Melo is set in a beautifuly converted farm building on a fully working organic farm. While we were there the workforce were pruning the oranges below our balcony! The buildings have been superbly converted and are spotlesly clean. The pool is wonderful and after a hard days sightseeing you can cool off in it while watching the sun set over the distant hills. The evening meals are fantastic and are served outside whenever possible. They are all local Sicilian dishes using either home grown or locally sourced organic engredients. You can really believe the recipies have been developed from what grandma cooked! Every evening the owner would come round, explain the meal and was able to suggest a locally sourced wine to go with it. We felt thoroughly at home here and would strongly recommend it.

My wife and I enjoyed a one night stay at the Casa di Melo - wished we had been able to stay longer (and hope to return). Staff very welcoming and atmosphere very relaxed. Rooms was lovely - large, airy, tastefully decorated and quiet (could have done with a couple of seats and table at the door to take advantage of the courtyard setting). Breakfast was an amazing spread. Pool and gardens a bonus.

Casa di Melo is a beautiful, tranquil oasis outside of Siracusa, Sicily. If you are looking for a peaceful setting with great hospitality and organic food, then consider this paradise. The rooms are neat, clean, and modestly furnished. The swimming pool is relaxing with a great view of the sunset in the evening. The owners' gracious hospitality, the lovely grounds, and the convenience to some marvelous day trips made me go back again for a second vacation. In addition, my kids love and miss the dogs! I wish I could keep this place a secret, but it merits a rave review! Chiara, Lorenzo, and staff make it feel like home away from home for me and my family. Maybe if there's room, we'll go back...

We can only but add our praise to that of others who have congratulated Lorenzo and Chiara on the marvellous agriturismo that is La Casa di Melo.

On a personal recommendation we booked for a week and the accommodation and service exceeded even our high expectations. We loved our spacious room with its terrace, and modern facilities. The grounds and pool add to a pervading atmosphere of relaxation and calm. The breakfasts were generous and featured delicious local specialities almost exclusively using produce for their organic farm. We cannot recommend highly enough the gastronomic experience of a dinner at La Casa di Melo, which we relished on six occasions. A four-course meal of some of the freshest and tastiest organic ingredients you are ever likely to eat, complimented by a selection of local wines – just brilliant.

Lorenzo and Chiara have created a haven of tranquility, bonhomie, and friendliness. Nothing is too much trouble for them or their staff. For the quality of accommodation, food, and service they provide, their price is excellent value for money.

Don’t just take our word for it, during our visit a number of guests extended their stays or even cancelled bookings elsewhere to continue enjoying the delights of La Casa di Melo.

In Casa Di Melo we spent two wonderful days. It is surrounded by lemon and orange orchards. Pool is very appealing and this was the first time when we liked swimming in it and tried to convince ourselves that the beach is better ;) There are 5 wonderful dogs living in Casa di Melo, the smallest - Olivia, a very funny and she was only 3 months. The oldest - is Melo.The breakfast was excellent with a large selection of pastries, juice, cheese. One evening we stayed at a dinner in the Casa Di Melo - it was delicious organic products directly from the farm, home recipes and unique atmosphere. Highly recommend! The attitude of the owners was very kind and attentive and on our every question we had always tips - where to spend time, the best beach, a place for dinner. Did not want to leave Casa at all - this wasa place of peace and relaxation, so that you just want to come again and live here much longer.

We spent the last 2 nights of our trip at this (very affordable) B&B in the heart of the countryside. Surrounded by organic orchards, this beautiful hotel has an amazing infinity pool in its lush garden - so beautiful it makes you want to spend more time there than at the beach, especially during busy weekends!
Breakfast deserves a special mention - different food is prepared everyday by expert hands: there's a delicious choice of sweet and savoury dishes and all of it is organic and locally produced.
The B&B also offers dinner for those interested, but reservation (in the morning at the latest) is a must as the menu depends on what the chef can harvest from the fields on that day!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
La Casa di Melo is an ancient Sicilian farmhouse, built at the beginning of the 19th century. It's surrounded by a luxuriant organic citrus plantation, the green lung of our 150 hectares farm. My father, Giuseppe, taught me that living in a cleaner environment, along with eating better and respecting nature, are the basics for a better and happier life, with a lighter impact on the environment. That's why we decided to renovate the farmhouse. We are a family and we run this place with the goal to make you feel at home, sharing our love for nature and our respect for the environment. In the property we have 6 dogs living in totally freedom so if you are scared of dogs or looking for an all-inclusive place, an ordinary b&b, this place is not for you. ... more   less
