How, Dear Reader, would you review your own home? Perhaps not 100% objectively. The same goes for me and Miramare/Etrangers, which has been my home from home for 6 or 7 years now. But here goes. We’ll start from the bottom, topographically. You luggage will be expertly and expeditiously taken care of. The reception staff will make you feel at home from the very outset, and, day by day, you’ll discover that they are among the most loveable people in all Sicily and nothing, but nothing, is too much trouble for them. Rooms? We’ve always gone for a room with a waterfront view. Absolutely unexceptionable – spacious and well-appointed. Food? Breakfast, presided over by angelic Angelica, will set you up for pretty well the whole day. Lunch I can’t say anything about, because I’m always somewhere else at the time of day. Dinner? A short, exquisite menu, but expensive. I prefer the simpler, cheaper places along the waterfront. Once, though, a friend came to see us in mid-afternoon and I asked the head waiter to improvise. The result? The feast of a lifetime! In short, this a place I’ll returning to as long as I have breath in my body.
