When you know and care about what you are doing, it shows. Alfonso and Federica, the owners, take pride in running their B&B, and everything about this accommodation gets 5 stars.
Upon arrival, Alfonso was waiting for us outside his front door to greet us. His personality is very charming, and you feel at home almost immediately. He is a wealth of information, and his restaurant recommendations were excellent.
The rooms are beautiful and well furnished. Each one has its own character and has been well thought out down to the smallest detail (the artwork on the walls, room color combinations, complementary wine, etc.). The mattress is great, there is plenty of hot water in the shower, the TV works, and the wifi has a good connection. The rooms are large enough to relax in after a day sightseeing at the temples, and you have an option of opening up the windowed door to a small balcony to allow fresh air to come in.
The breakfast is to die for. Federica asked us the night before what we would like for breakfast. The next morning there it was, all laid out on the table-a large variety of top end pastries, cheeses, meats, fruit, yogurt, juice, and multiple cups of capuccinno. There was more food than we could possibly eat. No worries...anything left over was left on the table or in the frig for snacking when we returned from a busy day of touring. They have a very cute breakfast room-a good place to meet other tourists.
Parking is free and on the street. You might have to use a little effort to find a place to park, but we always found a spot. To find the B&B just remember to go up. The B&B is near the top of Agrigento; across the street from the cathedral and near Piazza Don Minzoni. You can walk to the center (10 to 15 minutes) or drive (10 minutes). There seemed to be adequate parking downtown. The temples are also about a 10 minute drive from the B&B. One tip for the temples. After seeing the temples, if you go to the Museum, DRIVE, don't walk (save time, and there is adequate parking).
Look no further. The experience we had here was a memorable one for sure!
