We enjoyed our stay at Casato Licitra as a pleasant country experience. The staff are very friendly, unfortunately we do not speak Italian although we did ok with the google translator. Our room was big, clean and comfortable. The hotel was very quiet for our stay as it was the off season, I imagine it would be great in the summer with the pool. The horse-riding was great, a nice easy ride to the castle nearby. They operate a dog kennels onsite also and the barking is quite loud at times, although no problems with sleeping at all. We ate at the hotel restaurant and the food was fine. We would recommend it for a country break.

Casato Licitra was an absolutely lovely experience. It was a perfect get away, far from the chaos of Sicilian cities yet close enough to allow you to visit practically anywhere in the south. The staff were extremely helpful and were more than willing to accomodate every request that we had. The food is an experience of its own and the rooms were impeccable. Not to mention the pool...with complete privacy u'll have 360 views of the Sicilian countryside with romantic music and drinks by the pool.

Definately a must if you would like to enjoy Sicily!

What I would reccomend is to take horse-riding trousers and boots to be able to enjoy it even more.

A farm was turned into a 4* star hotel. It is truly unique and you would not expect such a hotel in the Sicilian province. The best of all is the restaurant La Terrazza: let the chef compose the menu for you: original Sicilian dishes, just wonderful. Are the any negative things: it is hard to find, so use the GPS data from the homepage (not yet on Google maps); turn on a tiny unpaved road at the big street sign.

A beautiful family-run hotel in a great location - just 20-30 mins drive to many great locations such as Ragusa Iblea and Ragusa Marina. We drove to Licitra, with our 6 month old baby and dog. It was SO EASY! We had a great room, with a cot for baby, and even a bed for the dog. There was also a kitchenette which came in so handy for preparing bottles etc. The car was safely parked on the premises, and so close by that we could leave stuff we didnt really need in the car.

The staff were friendly and accommodating.

There is one restaurant which is really good.

They also have a pool, overlooking the valley - which was great!

Would super recommend Licitra for families on holiday!

The staff here made me feel like an important part of their big happy family yet managed to maintain professionalism. They even helped me plan and book my forward trip to Rome which I think was way beyond their job description but they were very happy to help. As a solo female traveler I felt safe. The food was fantastic. They even took the trouble to really listen to how I prefer my coffee and went out of their way to ensure it was on the table as soon as I sat down for breakfast. My room was a beautifully renovated huge old barn. Nice people. The only hitch for me was that they did not have Wifi. I understand they do provide free internet access for laptops. I had a tablet which meant no access for me.

Room Tip: Try the room opposite reception!

Not a place to stay if you want peace and quiet. There are dog kennels attached to the back of Casato Licitra so you hear dogs barking all the time. The bedrooms are very spacious and stylish. However the service is appalling. Toilet rolls were not replaced in the bathroom without having to ask at reception each time. The bath leaked and so I had a sopping wet bath mat each day which was not replaced automatically without me complaining.Some of the bedrooms smelt damp and musty and we had to keep asking to get fresh towels and our bedroom sheets changed. Not four star service at all; more like one star.

A holiday that we ll never forget..The farmhouse is beautiful with vast outdoor space. Parking our car was secure because it was in the farmhouse drive way behind a locked gate. The area is very quiet and peaceful. Upon arrival at the farmhouse, we received a very warm welcome from the farmhouse staff. The rooms are equipped with all the modern and brand new facilities. The rooms were cleaned daily and towels replaced for each of us. The breakfast was very abundant and the restaurant lunch and dinner were very delicious with local mouthwatering sicilian healthy dishes. The kids loved our stay at Casato Licitra since the swings were close to our bedroom and for the horseriding. We intend to return to this farmhouse in the near future.

Room Tip: Bedrooms are peaceful and clean
