“An exceptionally wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

This was an absolutely charming estate. Recently and impressively well renovated in a superb location. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Sicilian countryside and to use as a base to explore the surrounding area from. There are also good restaurants a short distance away and Noto and Modica are a pleasant drive away through the beautiful countryside. Relaxing in the huge and quiet pool was a pleasure after visiting neighbouring towns.

The owner was an exceptionally kind and thoughtful host and went out of his way to make sure that he could do anything possible to help us during our stay.

Can't recommend this place more highly and we have both travelled extensively and stayed in many of the best hotels in the world. We are very much looking forward to returning.

We spent five days in this wonderful Sicilian "Baglio", completely renovated with all the comfort. Francesco the owner of this resort with his kindness and hospitality helped us a lot in finding the right place to go. Rooms does not have a kitchen but there is a central one that could be used just for the kids. We look forward to spend some more days next year.....

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

Was at Vilata minusa together with my wife and 2 year old daughter for three days last week.
The place is very central if one wants to move around southern sicily by car. The building is restored beautifully and professional designer services are evident. No expense was spared in restoring this beautiful estate. One must clarify that works are ongoing. In fact the owners intend building a pool in the near future. The place is close to the sea for those who are adamant on bathing. Also, whilst some may consider this lacking, we surely blessed the fact that there was no tv in the room. We got to experience quality time, now so scare.
What surely cannot be replicated elsewhere is the exceptional service that the lovely family running this cove offered. I have travelled most corners of this world and I thought that far east customer service could not be matched. I was very wrong. Francesco (owner) and his family have re-defined the term customer service. The hosts are sublime. You are treated like a friend, royalty and a customer all in one. No words can explain how well you are made to feel.
The place holds loads of historical value and Francesco's father is obviously passionate about the building's history.
The family ouzes passion and love for what they do. We will definitely be back at Vilata Minusa shortly... Together with family and many...many friends. Alex, Denise and Faye
