Loggia dell’Acanto is located on a slope overlooking Scicli and features a panoramic view of the city. Guests have very comfortable private rooms with bathrooms that are kept spotlessly clean. There is also a patio area for guest’s use. At breakfast we enjoyed the shared dining area which had great views of the town. The room is traditionally decorated has some interesting artifacts including a camera collection.
The setting and facility are only part of the story. What really sets Loggia dell’Acanto apart is the hospitality of our hosts Andrea and Maria. They went out of their way to make sure we were looked after. Somehow they knew how to make us feel welcome without being overbearing. One example is when we traveled to Siracusa to see a Greek tragedy. Andrea gave us detailed instructions and a map to the Greek theatre. As well he found an English synopsis of the play so that we would understand the plot.
I highly recommend Loggia dell’Acanto. It was a pleasure to stay there and felt like we were at home. It was the highlight of our Sicilian vacation.
