Ottavio and his father were very helpful and welcoming, and the trays of Biscuits was a lovely welcome!!!
The home was lovely with some great antique artifacts. It was very clean and comfortable. It had a lovely outdoor seating area to relax and have our meals in comfort and the outdoor BBQ area was great, especially in the night light. We explored the local area, such as Caltagirone, Villa Romana del Casale etc, along with making some long distance trips to Mount Etna etc.
We seemed to be adopted by a lovely cat, who loved to eat with us at meal times outside, the owner Ottavio also provided the food for us for him, that was lovely.
Overall we had a lovely stay and would revisit.
Multi Grazie Ottavio per a buono vacanza

We had a great 9 day stay at Il Gelso Nero Farmhouse. Federico and Lorenzo could not have been more helpful as they showed us around the property and pointed out the best places to visit nearby. The accommodation was just what we wanted. It is comfortable, has modern facilities (which all worked well) and yet retains many old features which give it the feel of a much loved and quite grand family home. Its elevated position and large balcony area enabled us to take in the spectacular views with Mount Etna in the distance. Aidone is a fine rural town in which we enjoyed eating out, buying local food to eat in, walking through typically old and narrow Sicilian streets and being made to feel very welcome. When not simply relaxing by the pool, the nearby historic sites at Morgantina and Villa del Casale (Piazza Armerina) along with the Museum at Aidone gave us plenty to do without having to travel far. We would love to come back to this property and revisit this region of Sicily.
