We spent one night in Caltabellotta during a one week trip to Sicily. Honestly, had I known what to expect I would have booked at least 3 nights - this is the most romantic, beautiful and charming place EVER! We did not want to leave and almost cancelled the rest of our tour.
Sotto le Stelle is located in a beautifully renovated old house - a labour of love really, all done by the family in a 5 year project and with much attention to detail. No two rooms are the same, you still have the old frescoes where it was possible to preserve them, antique and modern furniture and parts have been designed by an artist friend. Very clean rooms, some with a stunning view and balcony, comfortable beds, spotless modern bathrooms.
Last but not least the family which runs the place is just lovely and wonderful.
We arrived early in the afternoon, starving after the trip from Palermo. After showing us the house and our room, we asked Guiseppe where we might find a place to eat - upon which he replied 'but why, you can eat at my restaurant!'. We followed him through narrow cobblestone- paved streets, entered through a door with just a little sign sayig 'MATES' and were in culinary HEAVEN. Mamma and brother are cooking real Sicilian food, and we not only had lunch but also dinner there - I'll write a separate review.
Guiseppe, a heartfelt thank you to you and yours - we are still dreaming of Caltabelotta thanks to you, your family, Sotto le Stelle and MATES - it has become our magical word of comfort when things get tough (or simply when we are hungry) - a whispered 'Caltabellotta'!
