    "An Oasis"

    Fontana del Cherubino really was a world away from the bustle of eastern Sicily. The farm was very tranquil with only the sound of a shepherd and his flock of sheep going by on the road below the fantastic terrace of our room that overlooked the valley. We really appreciated after our ascent to the top of fog shrouded Etna that we were welcomed back to our room with a roaring fire in the wood stove after requesting some wood for the room. The well priced, multiple course dinners with wine and an after dinner drink even though we were the only guests at the time really made us feel well taken care of. The olive oil produced at the farm was divine. Not sure that we will be in Sicily again soon, but Fontana would definitely be at the top of my list for where to stay if we are.

    What we had a wonderful time! Two weeks in a beautiful, peaceful surroundings were just what we needed. Since we had traveled by car from D, we arrived at 21.30 at night. We were received so kindly, and even got our first wonderful dinner! Then there was no question that we could cook every night of Samanta. Do not look for another restaurant, you can not find something better! Wonderful antipasti, pasta and risotto, tender flesh and a sweet treat after that ... oh, we have been looking forward to every night. Our accommodation, apartment Gelso which was set up very well. Everything is there, what you need. In front of our house is a shady place under our tree, a refreshing plunge pool, everything is green and wonderfully quiet. The plot with the house and pool was separated from the rest of the site with its own gate and two dogs (we have taken best ;-)) to guard us. Daniele has given us good tips for trips, and there was plenty to see. The location is convenient for trips. You can go anywhere fast. Mary and her husband Gabriel was always there to help point if we needed anything. I had selected the accommodation for the staff reports on this page, and we could make it any better. Many best wishes to Sicily! Kathleen and Reiner

    The La Rosa family can be congratulated on the way they have rebuilt and recultivated the property - and on how they look after their guests! We spent a lovely, relaxing, peaceful and quiet week here and felt treated like kings. The views are fantastic (including Etna - bring binoculars) and it's perfect for excursions. There are only two rooms - well, if you can call small houses 'rooms' ... One sleeps 2 (plus 2 on a sofabed), the other sleeps 2 people. Although they are close to each other, they are separate, and you are not overlooked by any neighbors or the guests of the other room. And if you're the only guests (as it happened to us for a couple of days), then you will arrive for dinner and find just one table on the terrace (with its fantastic views), laid for the two of you: It could not get any better! Thank you to Daniel and his family (and his mother for the fantastic limoncello!) For making us feel at home, Mary for looking after us and to Samantha for cooking food absolutely lovely!

    We stayed there for two nights and enjoyed it a lot. This farm is quite remote and you will need a car to get there. Especially we enjoyed the diner Which was excellent. It was the best we had in Sicily and shouldn `t be missed.

    We spent 4 nights at Fontana del Cherubino. In a quiet, rural setting between groves of prickly pears and olive trees we had a very comfortable room with its own secluded patio.
    The meals here were a highlight of our week in Sicily served on a high terrace, with stunning views of the plain out to Catania and Etna. Dinner was superb and unhurried making our intention of eating out at least one night a gamble not worth taking.
    With just two rooms, this agriturismo offers all the benefits of a well placed private villa with it's own pool and the added benefit of exceptional, varied local food cooked just for you by Samanta.
    Thank you to Maria, Andrea, Daniele and Samanta for making us so welcome and putting up with my attempts at Italian!

    09/07/2011

    We stayed 3 days at the Fountain of Cherubino and we were very well: spacious room, and comfortable (only remark: the sofa bed for our 2 children was a bit 'tight), romantic dinners on the terrace, first class food. The kids have really enjoyed the pool, keeping perfettamente.Un warm greeting to Mary, her husband and children, and Daniel.

    08/12/2011

    Of all the places we stayed in Sicily, this was the best by miles! We were on our honeymoon and were made to feel really special. We had amazing 4 course dinners on the terrace (which afforded fabulous views over the valley and distant mountains).
    Pool is great, as is accommodation - loads of privacy.
    Daniele and the team made us feel so welcome, we'll definitely be back!

    "Eccellente !"

    06/14/2011

    We stayed in Fontana del Cherubina for 3 days, as part of our trip in Sicily. It was an ecsellent choice! From there, we were doing daily excursions. We went on the Etna, to Taormina, to the beaches and Catania.
    Fontana del Cherubino is really a charming place. There are only two rooms, each one in a little house, on the middel of the olive trees and "fichi d'india". It is quite and peacefull, and the vue on the valley is amasing. We recommend it certainly!
    When we arrived the first day, it was already quite late. However, we could eat in the restaurant of Fontana del Cherubino, and it was excellent.
    Congratulations Daniele, and we wish you tho best to come!

    "What you would call a "nice" place ..."

    06/11/2011

    Search the Web location where you can celebrate the communion of my daughter, I found this farm to me completely unknown. Reading the positive comments, I decided to go to MS Licodia and see for yourself. Oh well ... the impression was positive, so much so that I've decided to book it. The reception of Daniel was convicente right now, absolutely discreet and friendly, but always with a gentle air of professionalism (which never hurts). The day of the ceremony, despite the uncomfortable weather conditions, and is' done in the best way: warm welcome, family-like atmosphere, with staff keen to smile, in a meticulous guest care. The food proved to live up to all expectations, with simple tastes and new at the same time: in short, creativity and culinary quality of the food are not missed and all guests have appreciated. One last note on the location: I could not appreciate it fully, given the gloomy day, but the grove glance, the countryside and the breathtaking backdrop filled the eyes of relaxing pleasure. Now we have to go there alone in the company of my better half ... (It seems that there is also a swimming pool!)

    "Easter break 2011 - Deserves all the praise it gets!"

    04/30/2011

    We chose this farmhouse from the comments on this site and we were not disappointed - Cherubino lives up to all the praise it receives. We have two kids ages 10 and 5 and we were all able to stay in a little 'house' of our own (contains large bedroom and bathroom with shower)in it's own garden of orange trees. A lovely terrace with a wood store for the wood burner in the room which kept the room warm and cozy at night.
    A simple breakfast was provided of local produce and everyone should take the dinner as it was a voyage of the unknown - a 4 course meal of traditional dishes, pasta, meats, vegetables etc and wine. What we liked about it was it was fixed so you were able to try dishes that you may not have chosen but they were all delicious and the kids ate it too!
    So to conclude, we had 3 great days at Cherubino, very close to Etna and lovely views. Danielle and his wife did us proud and nothing was to much trouble for them and we thank them for that.
    If you want comfortable back to nature type holiday then this is the place to visit - you won't be disappointed.
