“Lovely quiet rural retreat”
Reviewed August 4, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a great stay! It was a lovely quiet spot and a good base to explore that corner of Sicily. A couple of hours to Etna, and quite a gruelling drive (nearly 3 hours) to Valley of Temples, but well worth it. As Montalbano viewers we were delighted to eat outside the Municipale in Scicli, and even more at Enzo's in Punta Secca. The seafood was wonderful! And to get arancini in Ragusa Ibla!

The facilities could hardly have been better - wonderful to eat on the terrace and watch the sunset. Shops nearby were excellent. And the welcome pack in the fridge was very generous. Weather was wonderful - had expected it to tend towards uncomfortably hot, but apart from one day it was just right.

Many thanks to our helpful hosts.

“Wonderful house in Southern Sicily”
Reviewed May 16, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Piccola Casa is a wonderful house in a country setting. It is spacious with a great kitchen that lacks for nothing. And the view is to die for! We stayed five nights and found the house charming and comfortable. It is but a few minutes from two small towns and we enjoyed going into both Giarratana and San Giacomo for coffee, groceries and pizza. The hosts, Liz and Greg were welcoming and helpful. They speak English as their first language but have both learned Italian and have many local friends and contacts. Their advice about where to go and what to see was invaluable - we had an amazing time, largely thanks to their help.

Liked best: Sunsets and having lunch on the patio. It was great to see the olive and fruit trees and being in the country.
Liked least: The hot water heater is pretty small and you had to take quick showers but that is typical for Italy.
