B&B Girosa in Caltigirone is a fairly newly established place run by a charming young couple who live upstairs with their several children. The owner’s mother does the cooking and offers lunch and dinner as well as providing the included breakfast. There are 5 rooms in addition to the dining room. Ours was nice size double bedded room with TV, minibar (extra charge for contents) and airconditioning. Wifi is advertised but we didn’t see a computer. There may be wiring for those who bring there own computers. Our friends’ room across the hall was similar but had a disabled accessible bathroom. We parked out front without a problem and a large parking lot is being built by the city across the street. We ate dinner on the premises and were served a well-prepared three course meal with wine for 30 Euros per person. Service was polite and the owner, though not English speaking, made sure we were well taken care of. Breakfast included in the price offered omelets , if desired., cheese and meats in addition to croissants and breads.
Girosa is located in walking distance to most of the attractions of Caltigirone, including the famous 150 step Santa Maria del Monte staircase decorated with tiles though it is on the lowest level of the town and getting to the top on foot requires some walking. The town is known for its ceramics and there are many shops selling these around town.
