Beautiful garden, very welcoming host and perfect location to make day trips to Syracuse, Noto, Ragusa, Modica etc. Not 5 stars because the room was a little moisty, but this might not be a thing during the hot Sicilian summers :)
Tucked away down a dusty farm track amid the olive and citrus trees in the countryside 15 minutes by car from Syracuse, is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Francesca, well travelled herself, is a great hostess and has created a Bohemian B&B with charm and character. From the welcome we received, with lashings of hot coffee and great conversation, to the tips for dining out and visiting Syracuse, we thoroughly enjoyed her company.
Our en suite room was spotlessly clean and rustically furnished with a kitchenette including fridge, dining table, air con, TV and a comfortable double bed. Wi-Fi was good. Breakfast is taken on a terrace overlooking the extensive and beautifully maintained gardens with citrus trees. We feasted on Francesca's scrumptious home made preserves, bread, yoghurt with lemon and scrambled eggs, washed down with coffee and freshly squeezed juice. It was a truly lovely experience to see the first golden rays of the morning sun streaming in through the wooden shutters of the window and to greet the day with a chorus of bird song. The price at 55 euro a night was an absolute bargain.
This bed & breakfast is close to a beautiful beach on the Mediterranean Sea (3 min drive, 15 min walk), it is as good as a Bed & Breakfast can get!
The owner Francesca and her musical family (I was treated to a jazz performance due to timing) deliver from the heart.
Breakfasts are wonderful and catered to want (with offered choices of course).
Each adjacent cabin like room has windows and own air conditioners (excellent), have their own bathrooms and mini showers with hot water, have windows that open and tv's.
One can lock their room from the inside.
The grounds are incredibly beautiful and fresh fruits and veggies grow here.
There is care and love here and that is what makes this place exemplary. A simple A +, highly recommended.
Francesca is a great Hostess.. She made it warm and welcoming at her B&B. Her place is a place to unwind and relax. We stayed for 4 nights.
Francesca let us pick which room we wanted and then offered us a country cottage that was available at no extra charge. It was sweet and charming. stove, fridge, washing machine and outside dining area.
Breakfast was fresh baked cakes and homemade yogurt. Delicious!!!!
It is close to local beaches and a 10-15 min to city center of siracusa.
Great place and would recommend it and stay again
Charmy, beautiful B and B with a wonderfull hostess. She picked us up on the busstation, drove us to a scooterrental, gave us supper and was really dedicated to see that our trip would be the best. Lovely charmy dogs, lemontrees next to the room. I would gladly come back!
