We stayed here for one night in May 2014 on our honeymoon. We had our own rental car and wanted a place close to Agrigento so that we could visit the Valley of Temples. We had been staying in B&B's in Sicily for the entire week previously and this topped them all. The setting was beautiful-- right off the highway (convenient, but you can't really hear the traffic), a beautiful view of the hills-- their rooms seemed newly renovated-- a cute patio area right outside and everything was very clean. I can't say enough of their hospitality. We were warmly greeted (and they asked to make sure that we were ok with their dogs-- friendly and adorable), offered coffee, and so generous with suggestions and information about where to eat and what to see in Agrigento. They provided us with tour maps and info guides for the Valley of Temples. The restaurant they suggested was perfect-- exactly what we were looking for. There was also pistachios and local Marsala wine in our room for us as an aperitivo or digestiv! Felt almost like a hotel rather than a B&B. I can't say enough praise about their breakfast too-- homemade, delicious. Sweet of course because it's Sicily, but there was more than enough food for me and my husband. I would highly recommend, especially if you have a rental car, to stay here. You'll need the car to get into the city which is just a few minutes away. They are up on a steep hill, but you only have to go up a little ways. I can't wait for our next stay. Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.
