From the friendly summer buzz in the streets of the small Sicilian town of Casteldaccia, I passed through an ancient portal into a self-contained paradise. My husband and I were welcomed by the cooling shade of a rich garden and the smiling and warm hospitality of the owners, Maria and Riccardo.
We settled on two floors of an ancestral home, enhanced with the most modern facilities, embellished by beautiful mosaics of bright Mediterranean colours, thanks to the artistry of Riccardo.
The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Upstairs they opened onto a balcony overlooking the garden, while downstairs they were shaded by a porch, furnished with a dining set and loungers. The large laid-back kitchen is a charming fusion of times gone with the comforts of modern appliances.
Altogether, the unspoiled atmosphere in which to eat and relax in peace. Certainly, at the end of a busy day of sightseeing, the ideal place where to enjoy a glass of wine enveloped in the velvety Sicilian summer night. The garden below is luxuriant, with beautiful palms, other exotic plants and lush flowery bushes.
The location is very convenient for easily reaching the most important tourist sights. A nice not overcrowded beach can be reached in a few minutes by car.
