Glad to see lots of nice things written about Sergio. He was a lovely host who helped us at every turn, be it advising us where to grab a much needed beer and pizza after a long drive, where to go for a perfect cappuccino in the morning, or where to go locally for a good trip out. He sent us to the places he said he liked to go, and we weren't ever disappointed. We visited over Easter, so the town was quiet with a lot of places closed the whole time we were there, but Sergio didn't point us towards a single dud. Lovely guy, who keeps a beautifully decorated and furnished B&B. Loads more style compared to lots of other places I've seen or heard about in Italy. Amazing original stone floor in our room.
Sergio provides fresh pastries and bread for the morning, which is a lot better than the usual melba toast in a packet you get elsewhere (although I think he has that too).
B&B is well placed to get to by car from the main road but doesn't feel at all close to anything busy. There's loads of one way streets which makes it interesting but there's a street next to the B&B that's free to park on. Sergio will show you. Very close walk to the sea front where you can see Sicily and grab an amazing coffee. Equally close to some of the main parts of the town with shops, bars and restaurants.
We felt really welcomed and looked after and would always recommend this place. If you're thinking about booking then I know it helps Sergio if you contact him directly rather than going through an agent as they take a sizeable chunk of the price. We'd definitely go back and hopefully will be later in the year.
