Set in an idyllic lemon orchard with also one or two orange and cherry tress. You can wonder between the trees on grassy walks, beautifully silent and sunny with a back drop of mountains (Etna) and the sea, it could be a writer's retreat. Excellent cuisine:- four course dinner, from which you can choose how many courses you wish. There is a good selection of inexpensive wines and home made lemoncello. Fresh lemons and oranges are picked each day on this working farm to make your breakfast juices and refreshments. There is a beautiful large pool with (in season) lunch facilities: pizza, coffee and ice creams. We had a large spacious modern bathroom and tv in our bedroom, though no English speaking channels. Very helpful and hard working staff, and a special thanks to Carlo, one of the owners, for going above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The walk to Riposto we shied away from, fearing the reputation of Sicilian drivers. However, there is a very professional taxi service that can take you out and about, including to and from the airport if you are carless as we were. Very popular with young families who are well catered for.
Our first agritursmo on our trip to Sicily and we were impressed by the beauty of the place: the surroundings (clear view on the Etna), facilities (swimming pool, showers, citrus orchard, bicycles to use, pingpong table...), buildings, kitchen, personnel, and nature with very beautiful flowers in September. I made beautiful photo's of the place.

The farm is surrounded by a large citrus grove and consists of two buildings: the first in the main lodge, with swimming pool, play area and the restaurant and some rooms; the second at about 700 meters and another citrus and other rooms. Those staying in the second building then have to reach by car or on foot restaurant area. The rooms are spacious, simple furnishings and cleaned regularly. Breakfast is plentiful with cakes and homemade jams, really nice to do it in a beautiful sunny day with the view of Etna still snowy. The restaurant offers a la carte menu interesting and different from the usual houses. During Easter we stayed we took advantage of a package with lunch that has largely met. Original starters, main courses very tasty (delicious lamb sauce) and homemade desserts.
