Very special hotelPosted Nov 12, 2017
This hotel has a sense of history, beautiful grounds in the countryside and in the distance, a view of the sea which is about 15 mins drive away. The staff are just great and could not do more to make sure guests enjoy their stay. The breakfast buffet comprises cold meats, cheeses,eggs, jams, savoury tarts and baking etc. produced on the premises -we stayed for 13 nights and never tired of it. This hotel is a great basis for exploring the area , with beautiful beaches and amazing baroque towns. We were sorry to leave and hope to go back some time.

Heaven on EarthPosted Nov 8, 2017
Very best "hotel" in Sicily by far. An old converted Monastery that has been lovingly restored keeping the character but modernizing appropriately. Fabulous dinner in the refectory where monks used to eat. The old kitchen has been kept to see, but new kitchen used for innovative fresh meals. The grounds are beautiful with lovely swimming pool, gardens, veggie garden, etc. They offer cooking classes (would have loved to take), have a spa (we took massages-great), took tour of natural valley with water mills (lovely). Whatever you do in Sicily, come here at least two days. I would suggest more! I absolutely loved this piece of heaven. Tranquil, hospitality, history, etc ❤️❤️❤️

A lovely Hotel in a beautiful region of SicilyPosted Sep 26, 2017
It made for a superb holiday - Everything about the hotel was of a quality. It is also located close to towns such as Ragusa, Modica and Sicili, with their beautiful baroque architecture.

Wonderful place to bePosted Jul 3, 2017
Cons: Nothing we noticed
Location: Wine tasting/tours.Baroque towns.Nature reserves.Prehistory/necropoli. Agrigenta close enough for greek remains and spectacular Siracusa visitable.
14th cent monastry brought up to date by architect owner with lovely enclosed garden with small pool. The staff are far above average and could not help enough helping to organise our local trips to make the best of an area well worth a visit. Food excellent and great outside dinning.

Beautiful converted monastery.Posted Jun 3, 2017
Pros: It's tranquility. The food. The outside terraces/ gardens were wonderful and had been very authentically restored. Not cheap, but a very special place
Cons: Bedroom had no drawer storage, minimal hangers & a leaking shower. Pool was for looking at.Too cold to swim in. When signing for food/drink no prices.
Location: Needed a car. But Marina Di Ragusa, Punta Secca, & Scicly all close. Ragusa & Modica within reach. If you have more time, visit Syracuse & Noto.
Converted very authentically. The beautiful dining-room, which doubled as a breakfast room, had natural limestone walls, highly polished floors and wooden ceiling beams. All original windows were restored, & the theme continued throughout all the main areas and indeed into the bedrooms. The grounds were lovely. There was a main terrace that could be reached through reception or the dining-room. In fact, it was possible to eat outside if you wished, & many people had breakfast outside. This led into further gardens, with plenty of trees and flowers. A pool at the end , with overhanging trees, and lots of further little nooks and crannies with the sounds of running water. Very tranquil. There was a further dining-room downstairs, which I didn't see, which was apparently suitable for smaller parties & family parties. In fact, there was a family celebrating a 40th wedding anniversary whilst we were there. It would be beautiful for a small/medium wedding. We ate 2 evening meals there, which were both excellent quality. Breakfast was included in our package. This was very good & you couldn't fault the choice. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a good base for visiting a few very pretty little towns. Not an easy place to reach. You needed a car to travel around.

Best hotel in SicilyPosted May 29, 2017
I have been all over the island. Third trip. This spot is gorgeous and a great base for day outings. It's been in the same family for centuries, and the current owner is sophisticated, fluent, welcoming, and makes his own ricotta every morning over a fire at his farm on the property. Not cheap but totally worth it.
