If Heaven was a place on earth......

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed `a three night stay here and would highly recommend using this location as a base for travelling the East side of Sicily. The accommodation is stunning and the plot idyllic. The facilities were spotless and well-equipped. Extra bonuses were: A great herb garden, Spillo the Dog AKA Scooby Doo and the friendly cats ! Last but by no means least the owner Corrado is an absolute star - gave up 3 hours to discuss what to see, where to eat and responded to any questions within 5 minutes. All in all a fantastic holiday.....see u soon Spillo !!!

Wichtigen Platz !!!

  • 5 of 5

Corrado ist ein super Gastgeber. Er war vor und während unseres Aufenthalts immer für uns da. Er hat uns viele Tipps für Ausflüge, Restaurants, Shops etc. gegeben. Durch ihn haben wir kulinarische Spezialitäten aus Sizilien kennengelernt (Granita alle Mandorle mit Brioche, Arancini, Pudding alle Mandorle, leckere Weine) Das Haus entspricht genau der Beschreibung und den Fotos auf dem Airbnb-Portal. Es ist schön eingerichtet. Wir haben uns sofort rundum wohl gefühlt. Um das Haus herum hat es mehrere gemütliche Sitzplätze um sich nach einem anstrengenden Sightseeing-Tag zu erholen. Im Garten konnten wir Zitronen, Pomelos, Kakis und frische Kräuter ernten. Unser Highlight war Spillo der „Hofhund“. Wir alle haben uns in ihn verliebt und hätten ihn bei unserer Abreise am liebsten in den Koffer gepackt! Corrado, Spillo and the Cats, grazie mille per tutto! Wir würden unsere Ferien jederzeit gerne wieder bei Corrado verbringen!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Corrado really cares! He could not have done more to make our stay more perfect

Spillo the dog was great fun and the cats and new born kitten we the icing on the cake

The property is stunning, beautiful gardens with an super pool and outdoor eating space with Oven and BBQ

Great base for access to this region of a fantastic island. Avola has some nice places to eat and is 15 mins by car (which is a must)

There is one bad review for this property - ignore it, its rubbish!

Would recommend it to anyone

The perfect location for a Sicilian family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Sicilian holiday, made extra special by our host Corrado who gave us lots of tips on places to visit, which restaurants to go to and even where to park. The farmhouse had everything that we needed including plenty of shaded areas to sit and enjoy alfresco dining. Our children loved Spillo the dog and Ricky the cat plus cooling down in the lovely pool. We visited Mount Etna, Ragusa, Noto and Syracusa plus many trips to the local beaches. However our favourite place we visited was Cava Grande which was truly spectacular and like no other place we have been before. Corrado made us feel most welcome and we must say a special thank you for the Aranchini which we loved. We hope to return soon. Grazie Corrado!!

A little taste of heaven........

  • 5 of 5

As the large grey gates of Elanbeco open up you can't help but feel you have arrived in paradise. Immediately you are met with the most beautiful trees, blossoming flowers of every colour, a clear blue swimming pool surrounded by lemon & lime orchards. From the moment we arrived we loved our stay in Elanbeco. The house is very spacious, beautiful and full of interesting objects. It's well maintained and clean. The bedrooms are large, comfortable and air conditioned. The house, barbecue area, shaded lounging area & surrounding garden look even better than the pictures we saw on trip advisor. The kitchen is well stocked and has all you need if you plan on cooking meals or baking. The house is a good place for people who like animals - on the property there are two cats 'lemon' and Ricky and a lovely friendly dog called 'Spillo' my daughters aged 7, 4 and 9 months fell in love with him!! Corrado the owner was incredibly welcoming, kind and full of information about things to do and see, he really took a lot of time to make sure our stay went as smoothly as possible. We took a few trips to the nearby towns & beaches but our best time was spent relaxing in and around the house. Its very rare we get to come away from our busy lives and just slow down. My husband and I loved watching the girls running free, climbing the trees, chasing the dog, dipping in & out of the pool morning noon & night, having their meals in the stunning outdoors. My favourite memory will be our time as a family sitting late at night playing games on the patio. Elanbeco allows you to enjoy the simple things in life -family time. Thank you Corrado for all your help and a beautiful holiday. Jennifer John & The Girls

Fantastic, relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful holiday house, gorgeously located in the midst of lemon trees, with views of sparkling sea and rocky hills, with a friendly and knowledgable host. We stayed for a week with our children (6 and 4) whose favourite thing about Sicily was Spillo the "holiday dog"! A fantastic place to relax and chill out, peaceful and tons of outside space. Everything we needed in the house too, which could easily accommodate a larger group in the 2 large bedrooms. A car is definitely needed but the house is perfectly situated to reach beautiful SE Sicily, we also went to Mount Etna and Taormima both within easy reach. Corrado gave us lots of tips on places to visit and where to eat, our favourite day was the walk at Cava Grande. A stunning place, we hope to return soon. Thanks Corrado!
