Country hotel with wonderful garden
We had a mixed experience; the garden, the people, the space in our room were all wonderful. We loved sitting out in the morning and evening in this delightful space. We thought breakfast was expensive (7 euros) and should have been included. Getting to it along badly signed and poor tracks is not simple. It is also a fault of sat navs which confuse poor tracks for proper roads. The bed in our large room was very firm and uncomfortable for me.

Sensational Siracusa
Amazing area, beautiful grounds, great and helpful staff!

Peaceful rural location
This was a very quiet restful place with beautiful gardens - apart from the main garden by the villa, our room overlooked a smaller more private garden with lovely flowers everywhere. Breakfast was very good, and leisurely, available until 11.00am, which was perfect for those who liked a lazy start to the day. As the villa was in the middle of nowhere, the nearest restaurant was a few minutes drive away. Getting into Syracuse was easy - about 15 mins away, and the hotel staff were very helpful telling us where we could park!
