“A truly charming stay”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

What I have to say about Terrazze di Montelusa has been said many times before, but is worth saying again: this is a real find in Agrigento. In fact, it is the kind of place where you really are reluctant to say goodbye, both to the elegant and comfortable surroundings and to Francesco, who is a sensitive, helpful and charming host.

Our room was the suite at the end of the hall. It featured a good-sized sitting room off which was a small terrace, a large bedroom and very adequate bath. Unfortunately, there was little in the way of a view, but we were out much of the time anyway.

Breakfast on the top floor's terraces was delightful: a fresh assortment of baked goods made both on the premises and brought in by Francesco. At night, several of the Temples could be seen illuminated from the top terrace, particularly Concordia.

Clean, with a faded elegance (nothing brassy or plastic), this is Francesco's family's former home. As a parting gift, Francesco sat at the piano and played Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. You can't buy memories like this.

It was tough to leave.

Not easy to find, but well worth it. The B&B is a delight and so is Francesco! Lovely warm decor, and beautiful views from the terraces. Breakfast is quite nice and Francesco's special freshly baked treats are delicious. Only wish there was a lift, as we had to go up 3 floors with 4 suitcases, which was our choice, because we were the only room on the floor and quite private. Francesco did help, which I thought was very nice of him. Really enjoyed our stay here.

My friend and I stayed two nights at this lovely little bed and breakfast in Agrigento. The service was above and beyond what you usually expect. The Proprietor, Francisco, carried our bags, offered us tea on the terrace, when we came in weary and tired, and brought in fresh baked goods for breakfast.

I have celiac disease, and he immediately had a supply of gluten free products for my breakfast.

The rooms and beautiful and nicely decorated, with comfortable beds, modern private bathrooms. The proprietor also educated us on seeing the sites of Agrigento and helped us with bus trips etc., as we were not driving.

Besides the wonderful views on the terraces and the clean, with care decorated rooms, it's Francesco who makes this B&B really outstanding. His election by Trip Advisor as owner of the best B&B in Agrigento is really earned.
Thanks for the pleasant stay and for guiding us out of the chaotic traffic jam (due to the election day) in the narrow streets at our arrival, for offering your parking spot during our 2 days stay and for the tips to visit the area....by bus.

We has a wonderful stay at Terrazze di Montelusa. The owner has created a very personal and friendly atmosphere. It is well-designed, beautifully decorated, very comfortable. Wonderful outdoor sitting areas, great views. As we arrived on what turned out to be an Italian holiday, Francesco went out of his way to ensure that we knew what was available to do and see - his description of the temples & ancient Agrigento was an excellent history lesson. The suggestion for an evening meal was great. Breakfast was very good, the afternoon aperitives a pleasant surprise. Wish we could have stayed longer! Molte grazie, Francesco!

When you first drive up to the location of this wonderful B&B you can't imagine what a treat you are in for. First you meet Francesco and you are made to feel like long time friends. Francesco as described in many previous reviews is absolutely charming and a very warm and caring host. He showed us around the entire B&B and when we got to the top floor breakfast area we were in complete awe of the panoramic view of the Valley of the Temples and the coast line. This B&B as described in previous reviews feels more like a villa than a B&B and is one of the best places we have stayed in years. Francesco recommended two excellent places to eat, one being the Trattoria Terra & Mare which is on the main floor of the building that Terrazze di Montelusa is in and the other being Expanificio Osteria in Piazza Sinatra. The only thing I would caution any first time visitors who drive to this wonderful B&B is to follow Francesco's instructions to a tee or you could end up wandering around the narrow streets of old Agrigento trying to find these accomodations.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms. If you are lucky enough the best view room is on the top floor off the break...

This is a wonderful B&B with great views over the Valley of the Temples and the coast around Agrigento, it feels almost 'villa' like.

Francesco our host was most welcoming and very entertaining - we had a lovely time discussing Sicily with him over an aperitif as the sun set - better than watering the plants!

It is easy to understand why Francesco won the 2012 award, it is well deserved. Highly recommended. thanks for a wonderful stay Francesco. TripAdvisor needs a 5+ rating.
