This is what the last visitors have to say about their experience ....

"We had a long weekend stay in a lovely cottage near the small Sicilian village Giarrantana where you can find a delicious cuisine and enjoy a picturesque scenery. The climate and nature is wonderful while nearby you can visit amazing towns which are on Unesco World Heritage List. The house offers a perfect stay for 2 or 4 people situated in the middle of vineyards and olive trees in a lovely quiet area not far from the village. The view from the house is amazing. From the house you can make splendid nature hikes in the Calaforno forest. A must is to have fresh water from a nearby fountain, go eating out in Gusto Antico restaurant with indulging pizzas and fresh pastas, and go for a capuccino and a ' dolce' in Café Sicilia. We highly recommend this lovely cottage!!!! Tip: bring a bicycle with you and make trips in the nearby surrounding. "
