Room is very comfortable. There is an upstairs loft but not recommended for those who can't climb high steps. Food at Frantoio was delicious! Typical Sicilian course with great appetizers. They use their own olive oil with every meal. I also love their garden where you can dine for breakfast if you choose. Beautiful view of mountains of Sicily! Close...

Despite the narrow and uncomfortable road in the mountain (and we did it late night, dark, very dark night...) the effort is just right. I f you want to feel as in a real Italian movie, up the hills, real vacation, excellent food and enviroment, this is the place !! Beautiful and away, but still close to the main road...

I booked a room online and received an email asking for my credit card which I provided, and never heard back. So I asked my Italian friend who called the B&B (from the US!) and told me I'd be receiving a confirmation email which I never did! My friend and I had the same B&B contact: Corrado Cipolla. When we...

I believe that this gentleman has just confused the places where he went, however, to say that we are in the middle of nowhere ...... mah Just read some other reviews to understand that this man has no culture; moreover, it seems to me at least suspect that this reviewer has only one review made us !!!!!

This place is simply amazing. The location is isolated enough to have perfect quietness but at the same time just 5 minutes away from the motorway. The food is simply to die for, and most people would not get pass the appetizer plates which keep on coming. The views are simply breathtaking with all the surrounding beautiful mountains. We have...

This is the perfect place if you're looking for just reading books at the pool and doing nothing at all. We stayed here for 3 days in September, with very good weather. Beautiful property, nice pool and a cosy restaurant. The owners do not speak English, so it's hard to communicate. Be prepared for that. Our room was very nice,...

Beautiful old, rustic, country farm estate - like staying in a castle.  Very communal feeling, too.  Met some great people there.  However, pretty remote.  A little far from Cefalu to be convenient to there, but we didn't need that in this particular instance.  We enjoyed just hanging out.  The grounds were beautiful - a "living room", various courtyards, a pool,...

We stayed here for 3 nights around Easter 2015. I would like to rate this as 3.5, not quite average, but a bit short of very good. A bit of a drive but easy to find, although the road was in very bad condition for the last part of the way - due to the bad rains, parts of the...

Where to start? First off lets say this place is unique and fabulous. Traveling from Palermo towards Messina on the SS 113 you can turn south on highway A19, which travels toward the City of Catania on the east coast of Sicily. As you reach the very small village of Scillato you turn off on to highway SS643, a rural...

We visited Il Vecchio early in October 2014, on our first trip to Sicily. Spending four nights there gave us ample time to visit several sites featuring antiquities and architecture of the Greek, Roman, Arab, and Norman cultures. Having dinner (and breakfast) at Il Vecchio's on-site restaurant added to the experience. Breakfast was included in our arrangements and dinner was...

From the time we arrived we had a wonderful experience at Il Vecchio Frantoio. Tommy, met us in the parking lot, helped with our bags and offered us a glass of wine. When we got to our room it was nice, clean, and plenty big enough for a family of four. We paid for half board which includes the room,...
