We had a fantastic stay at the "casa del cavaliere" of Mr. Angelo, a truly old style italian 'Cavaliere'.
The house is very comfortable, with an ashtonishing view directly over the colorful "porticciolo" of Lampedusa.
The island itself has the best beaches, like la 'spiaggia del coniglio', and the "paese" is very small and beautiufull, with local shops and restaurants run by truly sicilian people which make you feel you are living in a '50 italian neo impressionist movie. Of course fresh fish is the best food in town, and really the fish here taste better than any fish I have tasted before. It is the cooking or the quality of the ingredients? Both of them, perhaps.
We have been there at Angelo's for two weeks, myself with wife and two children, and Mr Angelo and his kind wife maria made us feel like VIP guests with all sorts of courtesies and small attention which surely make the difference. Now we moved for our next two weeks to another more exotic continent, but this experience of Lampedusa at the casa del cavaliere will remain in our memories and wishes for a loong long time. We actually did not plan any repeat for next year, but considering from how much we miss the place already i fear that next year will be again Lampedusa. Thank you Angelo and Maria and wish we will meet soon again.
