“Wonderful farm, disappointing meals”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

The Fattoria itself is beautiful and the accommodation very rustic, which is not a problem. We have stayed in many agriturismos in Italy over the years. We do expect them to be clean though, no matter how basic. My sister and her husband in the double bed upstairs were eaten by fleas.

My main complaint, however, was the food. We paid €25 per person for a very poor meal. There was no antipasta or starter. A vegetarian pasta was served with bread as the primi. And for secondi there was grilled vegetables and cheese. Dessert was melon and a pastry. While I understand that there may have been a few vegatarians for dinner that evening, there was a very large group of people so different dishes could have been served. There was no coffee or anything else offered. This is in complete contrast to all the other agriturismos in Sicily we stayed at who offered a much higher standard for the same price.

Breakfast for €8 per person consisted of juice, coffee, bread, jam, some cheese left over from the night before and a few slices of salami. Very very poor.

we have just had our second stay at this down to earth quirky old manor/farmhouse..it is like stepping back in time...full of comfortable old furniture, and photographs, it is like staying with a favourite relative...eating outside a simple vegetarian meal so comforting and relaxing...the pool is warm and clean a delight.

Room Tip: i have stayed in the apartments and the house I preferred the house ..plenty of privacy

This is a wonderfully rambling old villa complete with chapel, olive groves, the requisite kittens and dogs and best of all a charming hostess. Dinner was simple and delicious and all the more so due to the lively international conversation masterfully guided by Chiara. Her olive oil and jams are definitely worth bringing home. Family photos, furniture and household items are present so you are truly "living with the family" while staying in their home. It was wonderful to be able to ask so many questions in English and get suggestions for our next day.

If you want to know the true Sicily from inside, then go to this ancient manor - Fattoria, on the top of a hill, close to Agrigento, where you can admire the Agrigento valleys, with its incredible colors in every season. The owner - your landladyChiara Agnello - steps from the noble family of Barone Agnello: the manor is still fully furnished as it was in the past. In the morning you can have breakfast on a terrace with a breathtaking view in front of you, tasting the special jams that Chiara Agnello herself prepares for you. And every night you can enjoy your dinner sitting outside under the trees, with the cats of Chiara, drinking local wine, tasting the excellent food that she will prepare for you using the products of her Fattoria. Not more than 10-12 guests at a time, coming from all over the world, at the same table,
Swimming pool with hammocks, and you will forget every problem....

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on the second floor, in the main house, to have a wonderful view from your windows...

We stayed in one of the appartments for 6 nights. It was very simply decorated and had everything you would want, but not very homely. We ate outside where we had table and chairs,there was also a bar b q area.We opted for breakfast at the villa this was on the terrace PERFECT.
The pool was beautiful and very clean not very deep very good for children, it is kept locked and the key is kept at the house.
We were offered clean towels and sheets.
On the downside the mattresses where very hard and uncomfortable. If you are a light sleeper you will be woken up with dogs barking.
If you like animals then this is the place for you it is a working farm. I loved the goats and sheep especially when they where put to pasture morning and night there bells warned you.
It is a beautiful place and if I where to go back I think I would choose b&b at the villa.

We stayed 3 nights , we had an appartment which was simply decorated and clean. The view was breathtaking. Fattoria Mosé is situated up on a hill overlooking the land, it is also very close to The Valley of the Temples which are breathtaking. The owner was very friendly and her french was impeccable which made this easier for my husband. We would actually wake up in the morning with the sounds of the farm animals. We simply loved this place and was exactly what we were looking for a different way to travel!

Room Tip: The appartment with the spiral stairway overlooking the land !

Chiara and her husband were wonderful hosts, we enjoyed a great dinner at the family dining-room with other guests, very lively and delicious food. The room was very big and airy and confortable, the breakfast delicious (we had it on the terrace, lovely) and we were able to tour the property, see the different trees, the chapel. It was a wonderful stay. Chiara speaks perfect English, and we were warmly welcome when we arrived, with drinks and almonds before being shown to our room. The swimming pool looked lovely, we could not use it because we had no time but I wish we had!
