We spent a very peaceful refreshing week in Lido di Noto. The place is Low key but thoughtfully laid out........ Beautiful Buildings . Amazing food and wine, really helpful staff.
Would definitely go back

An excellent and relaxing place to stay conveniently located in southeast Sicily. About 5-10 minutes to Noto, 30 min to Siracusa and within sight of the ocean. Lovely grounds full of lemon trees and very nice pool area. The courtyard in the center is lovely for breakfast or a dinner with lemon trees, bougainvillea, grape vines and honeysuckle.
Christina and the staff provided very good service throughout our three-day stay.
The rooms were rustic, clean and comfortable. The main building was built in 1780 and the other building in 1820.
Ate a nice dinner there in the courtyard. Good food and a wide variety of menu choices. Prices reasonable but not inexpensive. Nice wine selection.
Nice area but a bit too commercial comparing to other agriturismo in Sicily. Felt more like a hotel reception, less personal. The rooms are ok, but could be better. A lot of bugs, since the windows and doors leave gaps. Would expect higher quality for that money (which I found in other places I stayed during my trip)
Set amidst Lemon groves that were dripping with lemons while we were there, this is a wonderful place to get away from it all.
The people who run the hotel are most friendly and helpful. It also has a very nice outdoor pool – that we made use of, and lots of places to sit outside – in or out of the sun. Our room was comfortable and quiet.
The Hotel also has a very good restaurant where we ate several times, the menu is traditional Sicilian food, but cooked to a high standard. Breakfasts were also lovely with homemade cakes and jars of local honey and homemade jam.
What a lovely and beautiful place: the lemon trees, pool, the old building, close to the beach, quiet surroundings.. Perfect. Definitely a recommendation. What could be better is breakfast. Lots of sweets, hardly any healthy stuff. I missed that. The restaurant is ok, not great. Lots of choices and a bit pricy, I would have been happier just to eat whatever came of the land that day, and that cooked perfectly. Wines were sublime!
The staff was very friendly, but didn't speak much English. Rooms were good, modern and clean.
We were 2 + 3 older teens, and we took 2 ground floor rooms.
Our error was arriving just off summer season with the teens. Had it been mid summer, it would have been perfect.
The place itself is totally charming. The grounds are rustic enough so it doesn't attract just anyone. Great farm feeling. Great family ambience.
The rooms, on the other hand, I felt did not have the charm of the farm. Not sure what to suggest ...but there was plenty of room in each room and bathroom.
We ate there 1 night. Delicious. Expensive (be prepared), but delicious.
Breakfast is ok. Not more than that. You have to fight off the hornets (remember...farm!).
Regarding the area and time of year -for those of you with teens - as it happened, there just wasn't enough for the kids to do. The beaches were totally closed by 4pm which gave a not so great feeling.
We went to Noto to eat the 2 night. Ok-ish at night, at that time of year.
I would definitely go again, but I would make sure to go in the summer!
