We stopped over in Praia a Mare on our way down to Sicily, just one night; the reviews on Tripadvisor had drawn us to this B&B and we were not disappointed. My husband normally does not like B&B's but this was different; we arrived late in the afternoon with no open restaurants and were offered by Gaetano to have Antonella cook the evening meal. We didn't have a better meal in our 12 days in Italy; the lemons were freshly picked off the trees; and Gaetano's wine is terrific, as is the licortzia - - which recipe Gaetano shared with my delighted husband - and the anise flavoured liqueur. You could not ask for more charming hosts. Our 17 year old son enjoyed the meal and still talked about it after we left. The B&B is centrally located, a few minutes walk to the beach which is great for a long stroll.
