We arrived in Aidone without having booked anywhere to stay. We saw a sign for L'Alternativa and asked for directions at a bar. We found it easily, but there was no sign of life, so we phoned one of the numbers on the sign. The owner was away, but said we that the chef from the restaurant beside would look after us. We sat down at a friendly bar opposite and soon the chef arrived, and brought us into the B&B. There are 3 rooms, all upstairs, (so it wouldn't suit someone with mobility problems). Before we got to the room, we went though a kitchen, which had sink, fridge, tables and a hob and there was coffee and sugar on the counter, so we could make a cup of coffee whenever we felt like it. I found that there were some pots, cutlery and glasses, too, so if staying for a few days, it would be possible to do some limited cooking. The bedroom we were given was quite spacious, with 2 windows and a balcony, so nice and airy. The bathroom was very well appointed and stylish with good lighting. The whole place looked very fresh and new and also tastefully decorated, with a Dali print on the wall. We paid €50 per night, which included breakfast (basic - coffee and croissant) at a nearby bar, which seems to be a common arrangement in Sicilian B&Bs. There isn't any wi-fi and neither is there an e-mail address - contact by phone seems to be the normal way to book. Aidone is a pleasant place to stay if you want to visit the archeological site at Morgantina and there seem to be only a few B&Bs. L'Alternativa is conveniently located and has a good restaurant (Vecchia Aidone) right beside it.
