Right from check-in, our stay here was wonderful. Exchanging travel documents for a couple of glasses of chilled Sicilian white, we were taken to a comfortable sofa on the verandah overlooking the town and the bay below. A little while after that a tray of little local produce/snacks was brought out. A great way to start! Later Paolo, the manager, came out and gave us information about the town and the area, what to do and see, etc. He also spent the time to offer suggestions for a broader itinerary in other parts of Sicily, which was helpful as we hadn't had much time to plan, this trip being a bit last-minute. After this we were taken to our (upgraded!) room, which was immaculate, large and very comfortable, with a private verandah and outdoor bath. Level of service and promptness for the rest of our stay there were both up to the standards shown at check-in. Overall, a really nice experience - homely but sophisticated at the same time, and you're always made to feel very relaxed and comfortable.
