This villa is located in the beautiful sicilian countryside just a short drive from the city centre. It is surrounded by vineyards, has a totally relaxed atmosphere & the hosts make it a point that you feel at home. Breakfast is very good, the room was always fresh & clean & the swimming pool is sooo nice & refreshing. The hosts also recommended nice places & interesting excursions.
The cherry on the cake on our stay was the last night, where the hosts prepared a local meal made up of their own fresh ingredients in their stone oven. This consisted of freshly baked bread, olive oil, pizza, sausages, spare ribs & baked potatoes all to die for. Obviously, this was accompanied by their very own excellent wine. Their motto for such an occasion is 'Eat & drink as much as you like!'
My wife & I enjoyed our stay very much & we highly recommend this B&B both for value of money & also for the relaxed & friendly atmosphere.
We'll certainly be back!!!
Tanti saluti da Malta
