We spent 11 nights in Sicily and split them between three B&Bs.
The Castello was definitely the stand out of the three!!
From the moment we arrived we were treated with a genuine hospitality and this did not fade at all during our stay. Our room was cozy, clean and comfortable. The common area well equipped with everything we needed.We traveled with our 18 month old and the staff were so accommodating and considerate to her needs and we were pleased the B&B is not inside the main building ( the Castle) but stands alone in a cute, renovated annex close by so that guests can enjoy their privacy. We had been a little hesitant with our booking initially because is a little out of the main drag but soon found out that the owners coop with a shuttle service to and from town for a little additional price ( Euros 20,00 per way/dayrate), they will work around your times and with not too much notice will happily pick you up at a location convenient for you.
I could not fault this B&B in any way - the tripadviser rating is certainly justified. We look forward to returning in the future.
