Fantastic value , ( people who complain want 5* for 3* prices), its a farm .... local products, Family run. Staff could not do enough for you , had a few small problems on arrival ,but sorted out straight away. Pizzas fantastic, Al la cart not so Don't know why you need swimmers pool caps ? & single beds could be tied together for double. Stop you falling down the hole.
Although the restaurant was quite good and the pool area was very clean and taken care of. The rooms were very dirty and not cleaned enough. the grounds too were not cleaned at all. We had to pay the total amount before checking in, even if we were staying for 4 nights and we arrived very late at night with two young children.
It's ideal from run away from the hectic life. The place is very peaceful, quiet, amazing. The rooms are cosy, and the front private area with the table and chairs is really given that relaxing touch. The walks around, the animals and their amazing sound, large areas of trees enjoy the smell of oranges. Otto the dog is very friendly, the cats, horses, cows, pigs, sounds of the birds it's really an amazing experience, go there for sure. Away from the cars and their noise. The Owners and their team are Giuseppe was indescribable. They had everything how it should be, food, breakfast, drinks they made us feel at home. It's really great for families, couples as it's rest of mind.
A very wonderful and quiet place to stay. Good food. Beautiful large rooms including the bathroom. White and really fresh linen. Children play area. Very large swimming pool. Wonderful family. Keep up the good work
We have just returned from a wonderful break at Giardino del Sole. The place is very welcoming, the rooms are spacious, very well kept and very clean. The place is run by a wonderful family who are very helpful and friendly. It is a perfect place for families with young children. The food was delicious. Also, being coeliac, they took great care in providing me with gluten-free food (which was amazing!) and they were very careful to avoid cross-contamination. They also prepared a gluten-free table for me for breakfast (which included a very good lemon cake). We highly recommend the place and hope to be back soon!
we received a relaxed and friendly welcome at il giardino. It is in a peaceful and beautiful location and less than 30 minutes from the airport. We enjoyed an excellent 3 course evening meal which was also very good value. and although breakfast was a bit sparse it was sufficient. We had had a comfortable night and were sorry that we could not stay for longer. We would love to return there one day.
Beautiful wooden cabins with AC and modern/rustic bathrooms, exceptional 100% organic food (the best in Sicily in my opinion), and on the farm the property is situated on, many types of animals can be seen - from black pigs to horses, chickens to peacocks in the farm’s animal section; various fruit and vegetable trees are in this this tranquil and pleasant location. The restaurant can cater for people with allergens like my mother who is gluten-free (please do consult the extremely friendly staff for more information). There are many fruit trees that cover almost the entire farm like the olive trees or the most common closest to and around the cabins/main property: the beautiful orange trees. There is also a fairly large outdoor swimming pool for everybody and a mini-park for children. WiFi is best accessible in the the courtyard (dinner area), the reception, or the pool. It is an amazing place to switch off and relax! Now let’s get on to the incredible people that make this property what it is. We have never stayed in a place with such friendly and helpful hosts! Enza, Giuseppe and the rest of the team were extremely accommodating and very helpful in all aspects, and all the staff definitely deserve many rewards! The property is only about 15-20 minutes from Catania Fontanarossa Airport, and 30 minutes from Catania, 45 minutes from Siracusa, so it is quick and easy to access, but still long enough away from cities and is perfectly in the countryside. It is also fairly close (maybe 10 minutes by car) to the nearest beach and about 5-10 minutes from Carlentini which has some shopping facilities. Il Giardino del Sole has captured my heart and I cannot wait to return! It is certainly the most convenient, relaxing and friendly place we have ever stayed in. Enza and Giuseppe, you should be extremely proud of this amazing place!…
Good continental food, thankful owners, we felt very welcome.😊 When we arrived at a non-conventional time of day we got some good ad-hoc Sicilian food 👌On departure we got some good go-to tips like the Roman Villa at Piazza Armarina, definitly worth while.
The Agriturismo is in a perfect location to have some quite time, food is very good and the place is very very clean. Although I thought the room is bigger it was enough for us two with our 1 year old son, it was cosy and we really enjoyed looking at the rain while having a lovely coffee.
We had a lovely two days trip in this great place in Sicily. Ideal for families with kids and for those who love eating healthy. 20 min away from Etna. suggest to anyone who would like a nice stay in Sicily.
