Our plan was to stay at La Ginestra on the main street of Ferla, but that B&B was closed. Perhaps we should have phoned ahead, but people on the street seemed to think it was closed permanently. Towns people told us the only other accommodation in Ferla was Campanio Villaggio Agrituristico, about 5 km east of town. At first sight it seemed very luxurious although quite out of character with the surrounding area. It was new, grand with extensive water features and two swimming pools and magnificent views of the surrounding hills. However on closer inspection, it wasn't quite finished, attention to detail was lacking. For example, units had shutters with clasps on the wall to hold them open, but shutters couldn't open fully because a bench, cemented into place, was in the way. Smoked mirrors in the bathroom. Multiple head shower/sauna did not function properly. Workers were all Romanian immigrants. With Sicily's high unemployment rate, it was strange that locals weren't hired. We were the only guests in the hotel, at dinner, and at breakfast. A very strange situation since it was a huge complex. Because we were out of the main town we opted for half-board, but the menu they showed us a check-in was not what we received.The Romanian waitress tried her best to have the chef make what were were told, but I think the kitchen was not well-stocked. It seemed that locals might use the banquet facilities for weddings and such.
Ferla is a good location if you plan on visiting Pantalica.
