“A glimpse of paradise”
Reviewed December 1, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This lovely cottage is situated just on a promontory area with left side overlooking the view of the mountains and the village of Giarratana, front side terraced fields full of olive trees and right side overlooking a river valley full of high forest trees.

The cottage has all the facilities you may need need and it is within walking distance (20mins walk) to the small village of Giarratana. 5 mins walk from this cottage there is also a nice restaurant situated in the bottom of the valley.

We had a really nice experience during our stay. We would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay and at the same time not far from all the amenities. Looking forward for another visit :-)

“Peaceful Location”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

If you want peace and quiet this is the place. The small town is a short drive away, so a car is necessary. The accommodation is well equipped, clean, spacious and comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome by an English speaking host.

“Tranquility and serenity at its best!”
Reviewed September 25, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This rustic country house is set with magnificent views of the Sicilian countryside and the Iblean Mountains, a breath of fresh air. A quiet rural and neat village is only walking distance, equipped with shops, supermarkets and petrol station and cheap restaurants. The location allows forest walks just seconds away from the house. The peace and tranquility have provided us with the serenity of a relaxing holiday and a memorable experience.... Paradiso is fit for purpose!

“A relaxing holiday”
Reviewed September 22, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Paradise is a verily relaxing spot in the Iblean Mountains. It is great waking to the mountain views from the great terrace. And the water from the nearby natural spring is really refreshing on hot days after a walk in the neighbouring Calaforno wood or to the nearby Giarratana. The locals are really friendly and the local almond delicacies are not to be skipped. The nearby Due Palms restaurant serves great local pizza. And if looking for adventure, the ParcAllaria offers a great day in nearby Buccheri.

But I cannot not thank enough the owners and the local maintaining family for their helpful hospitality. We will return for sure.

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The accommodation is close to the small village but secluded enough for total privacy. Very clean and everything is provided for everyday needs.. It is a haven for nature lovers and on the doorstep is the forest and nature park, with breathtaking scenery.. Ideal for a relaxing holiday.

“Lovely and peaceful”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

An ideal little house in the hills near the woods, for a few days 'away from it all' break. The rental was picturesque, clean and comfortable with all the basic necessities one would expect in a self-catering establishment. Definitely will try to visit again.

“The closest you can get to Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our holiday at Paradiso was literally a dream come true.... It's hard to imagine a more peaceful, relaxing place! Paradiso is surrounded by nature, breathtaking scenery and a forest just a few step away.... it's impossible not to let go of all your worries, find yourself and destress!

What's also great is that Paradiso is so quiet and peaceful AND yet so accessible and a few minutes away by car from the village's community and shops which sell anything you may need.

Clenliness is very important for us and the place was immaculately clean... definately an extra bonus!!

All in all; its hard to hope for anything more out of our stay at Paradiso! I would DEFINATELY highly recommend Paradiso to my nearest and dearest.... and while you're there make sure you spend some time on the wonderful hammock there is outside... just gaze at the moon lit sky and enjoy this portion of heaven on earth :)
