“The Gold Standard For B&B's”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

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!

Like most visitors, I assume we were in Agrigento so see the temples and not much else; so all the more delightful that the place we stayed for our one night was so perfect. Our hostess could not have been more welcoming or friendly (although it took all the strength of our faltering Italian and her spotty English to communicate at times). When she found it was my wife's birthday that day, she surprised us with a "happy birthday" banner and a plate of special dessert treats. And the breakfast was everything you've read about in the other reviews and more so. Plus, it is easy to find as you just follow the road up to the Duomo and then park right on the street in front. After a long day, who could ask for anything more?

We chose Liola due to the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor. These reviews are well-deserved. All in all, this was the best accommodation at which we stayed in our Sicily trip and we absolutely loved it. The location is great, just a few steps away from the cathedral. Our room was not only beautiful but also spotless. Federica and Alfonso were the perfect hosts, helpful and extremely friendly. Alfonso even gave us a bottle of nice white wine as a gift. Breakfast was delicious – the best breakfasts we had in our two-week trip in Italy. There is a square nearby where it is possible to park. Excellent value and absolutely recommended. Thank you Federica and Alfonso!

Previous reviews led us to be very optimistic & thankfully our expectations were met. The hosts are top notch and passionate about giving you the very best experience. There is so much attention to detail everywhere you look. Best B&B breakfast ever experienced in Italy, with quality fare. Look no further than a night or two here - you will not be disappointed. I think the double rooms are more attractive and spacious than the twin room. The owners do not live on site but serve you for breakfast and they have lovely warm personalities!
Would 100% stay again if ever in Agrigento.

Room Tip: No views but the two double rooms offer small balconies with sunny French windows.

Chose this B&B in Agrigento because of the rave reviews and the place did not disappoint. Alfonso was there to great us on arrival and made us very welcome explaining that his house is our house during our stay! Everything is spotlessly clean, there is a dining room with comfy chairs to relax with a fridge full of goodies to help yourself to including Federica's homemade Limoncello. In the morning Federica was there serving our breakfast. The best we had in Sicily. Lovely savoury buns and canolo/pastries from the local bakers. Just before we went out to dinner Alfonso knocked on our door with a bottle of wine to drink, again with his compliments. They recommended local restaurants which were superb! Everything was excellent and we cannot recommend B&B highly enough. Thank you so much Alfonso & Federica

Room Tip: There are 3 rooms 2 doubles and a twin room. Ask for a double when booking as the rooms are larger a...

We stayed at B&B Liola over the New Year and really enjoyed our time there - the owners are incredibly friendly and went out of their way to make our stay a truly memorable experience: everything was flawless, from the warm welcome to the breakfast (lovely sweets and pastries!) and clean and comfortable room. Alfonso also helped in booking a table for New Year's eve dinner at a very nice local restaurant in Agrigento on extremely short notice. He and his wife deserve every praise for running this marvellous little B&B in such a friendly and courteous fashion.
