“A great base to see Sicily from”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We spent eight wonderful days here with another couple. The owners Aurora and Vincenzo were wonderful hosts, greeting us with a meal the evening we arrived, and giving us much assistance in where to eat, how to get to places, and helping us in many other ways which made our stay in Sicily such a marvellous experience. The house and bedrooms were comfortable, the outdoor living area was something we looked forward to returning to at the end of each day, especially the swimming pool. The only drawback was the very small kitchen but the lovely, large, cool patio with barbecue area more than compensated. Aurora and Vincenzo gave us a pizza making demonstration one evening, Aurora showing us (amidst much laughter) how to make the pizza dough and Enzo cooked the finished product using the wood-fired pizza oven in the outdoor eating area. Do enjoy this unusual experience! The house is ideally located for visiting the many varied and fascinating towns and points of interest in the eastern part of Sicily. We would love to return one day.

“Wonderful house in lovely part of Sicily.”
Reviewed 23 March 2013 for a stay in June 2012

In june 2012 we spent 2 weeks in "La casa del conte Ruggero" from Mr. Enzo and Mrs. Aurora Anfusso who received us with great Sicilian hospitality.
They were very helpful with explaining us how to and where to visit the beautiful spots in the neighbourhood.
By car we visited "la val di noto" and the sea is just half an hour driving.
The house is wonderful and because of the great wheather in June we could use the lovely swimming pool and enjoy the barbecue.
We are looking forward to come again.
