“Quiet, charming refuge with decent food”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

I found this place on the Agriturismo.it website. We had a stunning room looking on to the courtyard of this ancient Franciscan monastery which was converted into a farm in the mid 19th century. After a few days on the hot highways of Sicily, this was the perfect refuge for reading, swimming in the pool, drinking local wine and eating nice home-cooked dinners. It's a no-frills, charming agriturismo and you really feel that this is someone's home. Lily is such a friendly and welcoming hostess and left us alone to happily pass away the day by the swimming pool but always happy to go the extra mile if you ask for anything. She recommended a great place for lunch which we really enjoyed. The Valle di Templi is within easy reach but take my advice, hang by the pool, throw away your cares, get stuck into your book, surfacing now and again for a glass of local vino. It's not posh restaurant dining but it's good and wholesome.

If you're looking for a setting adjacent/walking to a host of touring activities.. keep looking.. but if you are in a relaxed mode.. and you can: 1.drive to ruins, beaches, small town markets; 2. sit for an afternoon or two or three under an arbor reading.. talking with friends, or sit by a pool diving in at will; 3.take in the beautiful country side appreciating the golden fields of semolina, fig , apricot, orange and olive groves, interspersed with endless vineyards; and 4. appreciate the exquisite, dinner meals prepared for guests by Lily the hostess assisted by her husband.. Baglio Lauria will satisfy and exceed your expectations. The rooms are clean, airy and comfortable. We were a group of five friends traveling together (still friends at the end of the trip!)..Lilly and staff cheerily accommodated our room needs. For me.. ( I travel on my stomach) Lily's dinners were a highlight.. they are prepared by combining her creativity and warmth with what's available in the local market that day. One evening, a dessert was presented that looked like creme fraiche ice cream.. Nope.. sheep's milk ricotta in ice cream maker.. Guarantee you will utter at least one wow.. or your utterance of choice for pleasure! If not in kitchen, you might find Lily at her computer later in the evening translating Greek literature.. her hobby! other review about willing advise on your day trips was true for us as well. No reservations , about returning or referring friends.Enjoy your stay.

As farms go this is very basic but won me over after interacting with Lilly, the very enthusiastic wife of the owner. She is a good hostess and very helpful with directions, which are sorely needed out in the country side ( where it's not always the best bet to follow the GPS).
We were given the last room which is literally in the back of the house. It is filled with antique furnishings, but falls below expectation with the shower . The shower stall is basic standard farm issue ( a tiny square) but there is no shower head. On the plus side this is a quiet room ( not the largest we have had in dozens of farm stays) with its own private entrance and more private than the rooms accessed via the front entrance ... It does have two large double doors WITH SCEENS to keep out bugs and bees. Our issue here is the same as many other reviewers have had with other properties in sicily...when booking, the property confirms it has AC. But on arrival to this farm the AC was either broken or the owner did not want it used. We are unsure. You must make sure BEFORE checking in - or when making the reservation (!) that you have, or will have the AC control in hand and that the unit works. This is a working farm so you will walk thru the garage and around the tractor to access this room. ( Also the bed squeaks in this room).
Pool is clean and pretty and fairly good for laps, although it is very shallow. What I most enjoyed were the quiet shady spots - one next to the pool and one outside the dining room. There are wild flowers and the hills and valleys surrounding the farm are quite scenic. We have had more elaborate farm breakfasts ( there is no cappuccino offered) and dinners were basic local farm meals but overall fine.
This is a good location for country stay near Agrigento / valley of temples . It is 30 minutes drive.
