“Best stay in Sicily”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

The night spent at “B&B tra i frutti” actually was our best stay in Sicily, we stayed overnight here travelling from Agrigento where we visited the Valley of temples to Ragusa.
We asked for a family room (as we have 3 children) but finally got the whole floor, with 2 bedrooms (one for us and one for the children, each with his own bathroom and the access to the rooftop terrace, which is amazing and offers the view to the sea in the distance and the green gardens and fields nearby.
We were welcomed by a bottle of home wine, which was delicious, cheese and cake. The breakfast was truly great; including homemade mandarin jam (luckily we got one jar a present to bring home with us).
The family is great, helping and you actually feel like you are their personal guest and friend. Thanks to Lorenzo for playing and sharing his toys with our children! Thanks to Giuseppe and Paola for being such nice hosts! Kind regards from Slovenia!

We chose B&B Tra I Frutti because of its location to the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, and we are so glad we chose to stay there, even before we actually arrived. Due to multiple road construction areas, we got lost with a few wrong turns. Giuseppe and Paola were wonderful in helping us get to their place. In fact, once we were able to identify where we were, Giuseppe actually drove to our location in the the next town to find us and drove so we could follow him back to the B&B. We knew right then and there that the service was going to be exceptional.

The rooms were simple, yet very comfortable and quiet. A bottle of their own wine from their orchard was given to us, along with chilled bottled water to make our stay more enjoyable. The breakfast was traditional Sicilian style and was filling and delicious. We enjoyed our conversation with our hosts over breakfast and learned a lot about Italian and Sicilian life (they are fluent in English).

If we ever go back to Sicily, we will be staying here again. Thank you, Paola and Giuseppe, for making our stay wonderful. We will have found memories from our trip in Sicily because of your hospitality.

Room Tip: We were in the Limone room, and found it to be very comfortable.

We decided to stay at Tra I Frutti because it made a convenient base for exploring the region where our ancestors were born and spent their youth. It was a great location for this purpose since it kept us out of city traffic and had easy access to major highways. Little did we know, until our arrival, that the best reason for selecting Tra I Frutti was our most genial host Giuseppe, Paola, and their son Lorenzo. We stayed in two adjoining suits that were simple, but very spacious and comfortable, each having a separate bedroom and a sitting room with an extra single bed, breakfast table and sink. The bathroom was roomy and efficient. Our morning always started with good cheer, a variety of steaming coffees or tea, sweets, fruit, bread and a different cheese and deli meat each day. We were even treated to eggs from the hen house on our second day. Giuseppe and Paola were very generous host, treating us to prosciutto, cheese, bread and their wonderful home grown wine and olive oil on our arrival; they opened their common room to us for late night computer use and reading; and encouraged us to explore the orchids of fruit trees, olive trees, grape vines and the colorful blooms of the almond trees. Giuseppe's knowledge of the area routed us through lush Sicilian landscapes and verdant mountain reserves that were as soul searing as the visits to our ancestral villages. You will not find better host or value for your money in all of Sicily, or a more beautiful area to explore the Sicilian country side and ancient villages. A truly Sicilian gem.

Room Tip: If you are a family with children, the suits separated from the main hose are best. Couples might en...

Tra 1 Frutti B&B is a hidden treasure .Operated by a most gracoius couple fluent in both English and Italian . They serve a delightful table of fruit, jams and pastries for breakfast make their own wine as well . The cottages are quite nice surrounded by a working orchard . Not far from the Valley of the Temples or a convenient shopping mall. not to be missed

Room Tip: all the rooms were nice

We had a wonderful stay at the Tra i Frutti.
The room was very clean, simple furnished. Very good value for money.
The breakfast was just fabulous, fresh from the area. The owner family was
very helpful and extremely friendly. It is a place we would return to again, when
back in Sicily!

We stayed for two nights on 11-13 Nov. great base to discover Agrigento and the local area. Although they had been doing roadworks on the SS640 the road from the b&b to The Valley of the Temples is now open. Paolo and Giuseppe are a lovely couple. Nothing was too much trouble, very informative re sights and restaurants etc - They are just so nice that you don't think of them as your hosts more like friends.

We stayed 1 night in this peaceful B&B and enjoyed the service and the friendly hosts a lot. We were even thinking about prolonging the stay by one more night. The hosts are very warmhearted, welcoming and they care a lot about their guest, unlike in other B&Bs.
The garden and the rooms are just excellent. Not to mention the big breakfast. This B&B deserves all 5 stars!!!
Thanks for a lovely stay Paola and Guiseppe! Evgenia & Matthias
