“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed here after an extensive tout of Eastern Italy taking in Taormina, the Aolian Islands and Syracusa, but this was our favourite place to stay. It wasn't just the spacious and beautiful apratment with great beds, high ceilings,loads of space and a gorgoeus roof top deck, or even the central location, but the owners who made this place so special. They were really friendly kind and helpful and went way above and beyond what you could hope for. Can't reccomend this place enough, fantastic!

This is not your ordinary vacation rental! We feel lucky that we found Numero 22, where we spent about a month. It is head and shoulders above any other place we’ve been to or even seen. The two-bedroom apartment is very tastefully renovated to a demanding standard, with a large roof terrace (where I am typing this sipping a glass of wine). From the terrace you see the rooftops of Noto, a UNESCO protected treasure of baroque architecture. Just across the street is a beautiful church (there are so many of them in town that this one does not even make it onto the tour brochures). Within the airy, modern apartment, there is every convenience you may wish for. The dishwasher and the washer are very modern and work very well. The bathroom is bright and large. On the first floor you look through tall glass doors onto a lemon tree in a little courtyard from where the stairs go to the roof terrace. The terrace is sunny but also has shade under a canopy where there is a large table. Elaine and Pietro are perfect hosts. (Elaine is Irish and Pietro is from Sicily.) They go out of their way to welcome you and to help with anything you need. They make you feel like you know someone in the area and don’t feel lost. Their advice about Noto and Sicily is very useful. The only problem I can think of is that by writing this we may attract more people to the place and there won’t be a vacancy when we try to come back, which we definitely would love to do ☺!

“A little heaven in Noto”

As we adore Sicily and especially the South East part of it, we were several times in this beautiful city.
When we discovered Numero 22 (and 24) our visits have an extra value for us.
Numero 22 is a tasteful designed, spacious and well equipped apartment!
It is perfect situated in the adorable centre of Noto but with the roof-terace you can have a vacation as you are in the country-site.
A HEAVEN IN NOTO!!

“Fantastic home in Noto”

We spent two weeks at Numero 22 over the 2013-14 holiday season. We've rented many vacation homes and this is one of the best experiences we've had. The home is well appointed, tastefully decorated, and exceptionally clean. Its location is ideal for those who want to experience Noto on foot and, for those who plan to take day trips by car, there are numerous things to do within a short drive. The owners are beautiful people who are kind and helpful with suggestions for making the most of your trip to the Noto Valley. Since we arrived on Christmas, we also chose to have our first meal catered by the owners, which was wonderful. You will definitely enjoy Numero 22! Amo Sicilia!

“Comfort, Style and Independence”
Reviewed 30 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

It was clear from the moment we walked in through the old doorway that this place was special ! It was right in the heart of Noto, and was bright, modern and beautifully designed. The building has clearly been lovingly restored, keeping its historic feel.... yet with all the comforts you could need to relax, with quality. It was spotless. Loved having dinner on the roof terrace, with the sounds of the town in the distance... The owners were really welcoming and helpful with local info... we liked the place , and felt so at home... we changed our plans and stayed on in Noto for some extra days. Numero 22 is a great place to stay if you want comfort, style and independence.

“wonderful modern house in a beautiful historic city”
Reviewed 13 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Had a great time staying in this town house. Recently renovated, it's obvious a lot of love and effort has gone into restoring it to such a high standard. Very comfortable with lots of lovely little touches around the house. The roof terrace is great for relaxing during the day and for meals.
Its right in the middle of Noto which is a great place to wander around and makes a good base to explore this part of Sicily.The owners were very friendly and welcoming with lots of tips and advice on sights to see and things to do. Would highly recommend this house.

“Stunning 5* house with beautiful roof terrace in the heart of Noto”
Reviewed 12 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This property, a beautiful old Sicilian house, has been lovingly restored to a 5* standard. Apart from everything you'll need from the most heavenly beds, rain showers, a nespresso machine, a kitchen with everything, fancy tv etc, it is full of lovely quirky design touches in its layout, with courtyard, its furnishings and artworks. Right in the centre of beautiful Noto, we chose, one evening, to eat on the pretty roof terrace, which was quite perfect! The owners, are on hand with local advice, she is Irish and he Sicilan so they can help from the point of view of a visitor and a local. Don't miss the granite in Bar Sicilia for breakfast tho, just around the corner, we went on the owners recommendation on our last morning, amazing!!
