“This is a B&B, not an Agriturismo”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

We expected to arrive at a real Italian Agriturismo and to eat great home cooking with produce from the farm itself. We were met by a friendly and hospitable girl, but unfortunately she only informed us that the restaurant was closed and that we had to drive 20 minutes to Caltabellotta to get some real food. There were closer alternatives, but only pizzerias.

If we had known we had to drive to Caltabellotta in the middle of the night to get food, we would much rather have stayed in Caltabellotta in the first place.

As for animals? We didn't see any farm animals there, but we could hear the family's dog barking all day...

We were delighted by our experience here. Loretta and her family were perfect hosts. She is fluent in English and eager to make your stay a comfortable and relaxing time.

The food was outstanding with dinner a memorable and classic Sicillian experience with fresh pasta, fruits, vegetables, and wine.

The setting is serene-nestled in an olive grove just down the slope from Caltabellotta.
The rooms are nicely furnished-inviting and comfortable.

The entire family extended themselves to and made us feel at home.

Loretta guided us through a special event-reconnecting with relatives we discovered in Caltabellotta! Without her help and that of her husband, Stefano we would not have returned with family memories that will stay with us for a lifetime.

We will return to LeZerafe and look forward to reconnecting with our new found friends there!

Must for quality, hospitality, food, and value.

We found this place by accident, by their sign by the roadside. It was a wonderful place and wonderful people, young families with children working their orange and olive groves. Their local cuisine is simply excellent, and their own wine very delicious. From our room, we had a great view towards Caltabellotta, this incredible town glued to the mountaintop. Highly recommended!

We stayed for two nights primarily to visit the very interesting town of Caltabellotta. The nearby small village of Sant' Anna is also worth a visit. The highlights of our stay were the evening meals prepared by the matriarch of this family-owned rural guesthouse. Daughter, Loretta, served up the best Sicilian specialties we tasted during our 10-day self-guided tour of Sicily. Loretta, who is fluent in English, was also very attentive in all other respects.

We highly recommend this clean and comfortable agriturismo situated in a quiet, rural setting that's easily found once one realizes that Google maps erroneously plots the location quite a distance from the actual site. However, after a helpful telephone call from a kind Sant' Anna resident, we were met along the main road and in no time checking into a nice, large room.
