The house is comfortable, spacious, interestingly furnished, and was perfect for our family of 4. The huge covered area outside makes an additional sitting and dining room, as we ate all our meals outside. The kitchen is one of the best equipped I have encountered in a rental holiday home over many years of staying in such places for our holidays, and this was a delight for me, as I really enjoy finding and cooking local produce. The house is extremely quiet and yet is within easy reach of the major and fascinating towns of Ragusa, Modica, Chiaramonte, Caltagirone, and Palazzolo Acreide, with it's Greek amphitheatre. The pool is small but refreshing and was enjoyed by us all, but especially by the children. Trusha was a very considerate support, always as helpful as she could be (even to the point of coming to the airport to meet us to make sure we found the place, and providing a very welcome ‘welcome pack’ of groceries ), but she was never intrusive. This place was a wonderful find which we recommend wholeheartedly and enthusiastically.

La casa dispone de todos los utensilios para cocinar, todo muy limpio, con una parte trasera que permite descansar y relajarte en un ambiente unico. La propietaria, Valentina, encantadora , nos recibio con un vino siciliano y nos ofrecio su apoyo para lo que necesitasemos. En definitiva, una estancia en sicilia y en una casa, que siempre permanecera en nuestro recuerdo.
