A perfect host

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful, authentic Sicilian retreat with few animals this is the place. The house has beautiful, original features and retro furniture. The garden is large and has loads of herbs, lemon trees and other stunning plants. It's is quiet location but close to Avola, Noto, Siracusa and few pretty beaches. However it is not only the house that was excellent but mostly our fantastic host Corrado. He is one in a million! A perfect host, his hospitality and generosity knows no boundaries. We are truly grateful for a fantastic stay and have no hesitation recommending and hopefully returning.

Stunning setting with Mediterranean views to the south and Mountains views to the north. Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled in late April 2018 as a family of 4, staying for 7 days.

The experience of staying in an authentic Sicilian agricultural setting (the local farm co-op harvested the potatoes from the adjacent property during our stay) in a converted farmhouse, provided a truly unique appreciation of what makes Sicily so attractive and special. The outdoor spaces around the farmhouse were outstanding with lots of variety and room for everyone to have their "own space" within the lemon orchard, the pool area or the various sheltered patios. My favourite feature was the secluded outdoor shower with great views of the mountains. It makes you want to never shower indoors again!

The farmhouse looks to be a faithful conversion of a rustic farmhouse with out buildings. It was full of character, very clean and highly functional with lots of room for 4 people. The outdoor grill and pizza oven (using the available pruned lemon branches for fuel) were fun accessories. The location is close to Avola making it convenient to shop, dine out and readily access the wide variety of local historical (Noto etc.) and recreational sites (beaches etc.).

The owner Corrado was readily available and provided lots of valuable info regarding local sites, restaurants etc. The rest of Corrado's "team" consisting of Spillo the dog and the various cats were fun to have around the property adding to the farm like ambiance.

All in all, this rental complimented and enhanced a great holiday in Sicily.

Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay at the Farmhouse. It's a big property and you can sit and eat outside between lemon and olive trees. Each room has its own cozy and creative design. From the pool you have a great view at the sea. The host Corrado is a really nice and helpful person. He gave us good tips and information about interesting places you can visit in the region. We enjoyed the company of the cats and the dog Spillo.

Sicilian Sizzler

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in the villa. Our two sons, aged 8 & 10, loved the pool, playing with the dog and cats, and climbing the big old olive tree.

Corrado, the owner, comes every day to feed the animals and often brought us some local specialities as a treat. He also gives you loads of information about the surrounding area, including the best places to eat and drink. Unfortunately, a week wasn't long enough to see all of the sights...

The local beach is great and only 5 minutes away so we managed to get a swim in the sea most mornings or evenings.

The villa is full of charm and very clean. Plumbing in the area is a bit of an issue so you can't flush toilet paper down the toilet. This took a bit of getting used and if I was going back, I'd take a box of sanitiary bags with me.

Thanks for a lovely holiday Corrado, we hope to see you and Spillo again!

If you are stressed from work and everyday life just stay a week in Corrados charming farm house.

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples who stayed a week in Corrados modernized farm house, and we really enjoyed it. Corrado took great care of us from the moment we arrived in Avola. He took his time to tell us about all from where to go, what to see, beautiful paradise beaches and where to shop or eat. Coming home from exploring the beautiful cities around Avola it was just wonderful to jump in the pool and then relax in the garden among flowers, lemontrees and herbs. In the evening we sat on the terrace playing cards while Spillo and cats played around us. We have one little suggestion to make this an absolute heaven: Two more sunbeds and a parasol by the pool😉👍😘
