“A summer camp for kids-- living hell for adults”
Reviewed 29 April 2011

Sure this place is beautiful, in the middle of nowhere, but they cater to families with kids. We picked a room off their website, but when we were shown our room it was nothing like the pictures. It was dark, with no windows, no view, & it opened onto a playground that had hordes of screaming children at all hours of the day. When we asked for another room, the staff was completely unsympathetic and unnaccomodating. Then at dinner we were seated right next to tables of screaming children, running amok all over the dining hall. When we asked if there was a quieter place, they just shrugged their shoulders. It seemed some of the families were "friends" of the owners, like they all knew each other and we were the outsiders. Unless you like screaming kids, and parents and hotel staff that allow for them to run amok, i would avoid this place!

Room Tip: The pics on their website are not what you get!

We stayed for only one night and were sad to leave. Staff very friendly. Not too much English speaking there but we all seemed to communicate. The pool is great, horseback riding with our guide, Antonio, was wonderful not to mention very reasonable cost to US horse back riding. Country side although sunbaked was still beautiful. Get the dinner for 25E, well worth it. After the great dinner, one would have expected an outstanding breakfast but it was a bit disappointing. However, my stay was not about the food so I still highly recommend it. I love farm houses and this fit the bill. It had a remote felling but was not too far from the main highway.

I wish they would have sold some souvenirs with their insignia like clothes or something.

This place was so lovely and peaceful. We stayed here for 2 nights had it been summer could easily have stayed for 2 months. The 5 course dinner was superb and good value. The breakfast was ok. It would have been nice if the room had been cleaned and beds made

Other reviews spot on. Lovely place, great food, perfect place to just chill out. The motroway's only 10 minutes away so, while isolated, you're in easy reach of Etna, Agricento, etc. We stayed for five lovely days and ended up just relaxing there much more than we expected. It was very quiet during the qweek, but much livelier during weekend when Italian families from the cities tend to visit.

Highly recommended.

We stayed at the hotel for a wedding and it couldn't have been more perfect.
the surrounding's were beautiful, and the hotel itself was very clean and comfortable.
we were half board so had dinner every evening and the food was amazing, all the food is produced on the farm so it was very fresh and every night we all left with very full belly's.
the pool area was great, very clean and nothing overlooking you but hills. the was horse riding some great walks and a play area for the kids.
we were a group of about 30 ranging in age from 4 to 60 years and everybody had a great time.
the wedding reception was perfect because of the staff, food and surroundings, they made the day perfect.
i would highly recommend it for couples or family's.

A fantastic location, in a rural area but easy to get to, 5 mins from the autostrada between Palermo & Catania. The nearest town is Almina, it takes 30 mins to get to the Petralias and 45mins to Cefalu. The farm buildings have been beautifully restored. The apartments are basically furnished but very clean and comfortable. The food was the real highlight, we were self catering but eat evening meals on our first and last night. The meal consisted of a wide selection of antipasti to start, then a pasta dish, then meat with salad (my husband had what looked like half a cow and I had a frittata as I'm veggie) and then pudding was fruit salad and cake. We also had bread and wine with the meal and an aperitif. Very tasty and we could barely move after eating all that. They use produce from the farm for the meals and you can buy olive oil, cheese etc. that they have made. There are lots of seating areas outside to enjoy the beautiful scenery. There is a nice outdoor (unheated) pool and horseriding. The owners are very helpful and welcoming.
