I love the Italian countryside, but never feel quite comfortable in those hard beds and dusty furnishings. Casato Licitra is the perfect solution to this dilemma. The property gives you an authentic experience of the Sicilian countryside: cows, horses, sheep, cats -- the works. But the rooms, courtyard, reception area, and restaurant are restored in a very modern and design-savvy way. The bedrooms, bathrooms and showers are huge. Beds are amazing comfortable. Water pressure is great (so often a rural experience, sadly, means a trickle of water), with a nice shower head. Breakfast was amazing: we were there off season and it would have been so easy for them to skimp. But the proprietress (VERY nice) obviously got up very early to make fresh bread, two different types of homemade cake and freshly cut ripe fruit -- just for us. There were two powerful air con/heating units in the room. We used it for heating but I can imagine that it would be make the room a cool oasis in summer. The location is just outside of Ragusa, so all of the riches that southern Sicily has to offer are within reach. We live in Italy so didn't have a communication problem but the owner is so accessible and helpful I can't imagine having trouble even if we didn't speak Italian. It's hard for me to imagine the trouble that another reviewer had with the service because she was very attentive, checking in with us to make sure that we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend it -- and the rate is more than fair.
