Best breakfast we had in Sicily!Posted Nov 2, 2014
Pros: Host, room and breakfast.
Location: Valley of the Temples
Darios was a courteous host, the room was lovely and the breakfast was superb. We arrived a after getting drenched in a late afternoon thunderstorm at the Valley of the Temples and despite confusing road works, the directions were spot on. When we had dried out we headed to the recommended resturant, Kokalos, and had a good meal with pretty good views of said temples. We slept well but did get woken by a neighbour's barking dog in the morning (a theme throughout our stay in Sicily). Then to breakfast. Even though we were the only guests, the whole array of options was laid out for us and we even had music to accompany the feast. And what a feast! Darios kept coming out with more and more local delicacies for us to try. They looked so good that even our kids tried them all. We were given the history of the house and the only regret, as is often the case on holidays, we had to leave after only one night. The stay at Villa Diana was different to a 4 star hotel but all the better for it.

Very pretty rooms with a nice welcomePosted May 14, 2014
Pros: The room is very pretty and comfy, the breakfast is first class, the owners are extremely knd and gracious.
Cons: The landscape around the house
Location: Not much to do in the area but a couple of nice little restaurants in Favara.
I was there in early May, it's located in a farming area that is a bit rugged but the interior is lovely, the breakfast very compelling and the owners are super-helpful. Do not hesitate to stay there, you won't be disappointed.

wonderful hostsPosted Apr 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
Just a few minutes drive from the temples of Agrigento. Our room was large and comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Adding to the good time we had, the hosts were having a party for a baby niece and invited us to watch them make homemade cheese and ricotta for the celebration.

Great experience!Posted Oct 25, 2013
Location: The Temples are a fairly short drive from the bed and breakfast.
One of the best bed and breakfast places we have stayed at. Dario was extremely helpful. He even came to chauffer us to his place when we could not find it.The view from the balcony is lovely, the rooms very clean and comfortable, the breakfast was exceptional! Delicious - made by Dario (thank you!). He was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and the tourist sites. Unfortunately there is road construction which made navigating through Agrigento very challenging.

Great getaway on olive farmPosted Jul 25, 2013
Darius is a generous, attentive and informative host. He gave us directions, restaurant suggestions and a tour of his farm. We were interested in his family history which he was happy to share. We heartily recommend this place and would gladly return.

Fascinerende udsigtPosted Jul 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
Den stille vært var et særdeles behageligt bekendtskab. Der var stille og fredeligt og en rigtig god atmosfære. Fra de værelser, der vendte væk fra vejen, var udsigten mageløs.

Don't be put off by first impression - great stayPosted Jun 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
Dario offers great hospitality in his family home. At first sight Villa Diana looks a bit off putting (a sort of modern alpine style lodge in a rural Sicilian setting) and a little bit scruffy. However once inside it is a different story, once you get past the concept of antique furniture in a modern building, you find it very comfortable and everything of the top class (no cheap linens here) very clean and everything worked. The breakfast was the best - plenty of choice of fruit, juices, breads, cakes, presereves and eggs cooked to order by Dario, who is the perfect host and very helpful in giving directions and recommendations in perfect English. Strongly recommended!

Une bonne adresse!Posted May 12, 2013
C'est une maison de famille qui offre de grandes et confortables chambres. L'atmosphère est un peu particulière, on est entouré de meubles de famille un peu surannés, d'objets dignes d'un musée... l'environnement immédiat n'est pas des plus beaux... constructions anarchiques tout autour... mais le confort, la gentillesse et l'amabilité de notre hôte compensent tout ceci. Nous avons eu un problème à régler pendant notre séjour. Grâce à notre hôte nous avons pu le régler avec efficacité et rapidité. Le petit déjeuner est excellent, les conseils prodigués très utiles, le calme de la maison bienvenu après la fournaise et la foule de la Vallée des Temples. Une bonne adresse!
