    "Great view but poor service, dirty pool and poor animal conditions"

    10/11/2019

    In contrast to all other agriturismos we visited in Sicily, at Santa Margherita nobody seems to really care about guests, people seem to be only doing a job.
    - No warm welcome, especially the male service in the restaurant and at breakfast is not friendly.
    - Instant coffee is offered for breakfast, Cappuccino is served only upon request, nobody offers or informs that it is included.
    -plastic instead of real glasses for juice are not very eco friendly but less work for staff.
    - Cats and dogs are nice for the kids but the other animals live in poor conditions and the advertised horse riding is not possible.
    - The pool is dirty all the time, different excuses why it is not cleaned.
    - Football and tennis pitch have cracks and plants growing.
    -WiFi sometimes works, sometimes not.
    - Overall 500 EUR for an appartment including breakfast with two kids in October was a cheap stay, but also not very recommendable for a nice time. The team could make much more out of this location.

    "Breathtaking location but poor service"

    10/05/2019

    If it wasn't for the first class view and quality of food at the restaurant I wouldn't recommend this Agriturismo. We took our young children their for a short stay and for a distraction from the big cities in Italy. We were greeted with little interest and the woman in Reception even made our driver escort us to our room. Isn't this their job? We had no instructions of what and where the facilities were and only given the wifi code because the kids asked for it. We were not told the rooms were not serviced daily and in the middle of the night we ran out of toilet paper. Reception was closed. I cannot fault the quality of the food but be warned, if you eat what that provide or ask for a smaller light meal you will be charged the same price.
    Overall an average experience. There is so much to do as we intended to bike ride or take a cooking class but lost interest as the staff were not interested in us.

    "A beautiful spot of earth..."

    08/14/2019

    This year we spent our summer holidays in the Agriturismo Santa Margherita. We arrived late in the evening and were warmly welcomed. The next morning we were surprised with a fantastic view. The food was always regional and very tasty. Especially recommended is the Sicilian evening. You just have to go along with it. Beside the delicacies there is also finest musical entertainment. In the north of Sicily one discovers really great spots. We felt very comfortable. A special greeting goes to Claudia...she always had an open ear for our 1000 questions ??. Giuseppe is very charming and has everything under control. And Andrea is the funniest lifeguard I know... our boys had a lot of fun with him. We will recommend you 100%. Best regards from Germany...Janett and Thomas

    "Wonderfull place, close to the seaside, perfect and delicious food, friendly staff."

    08/05/2019

    We spent 10 days in Santa Margherita with half board. Perfect place for trips, wonderful view to sea and Lipari Islands. Delicious and rich breakfast and dinner of four courses with wine, home made arancielo. Perfect fresh pressed orange juice (fresh oranges from own plantation ,as well as other fruits and vegetables). Very friendly and helpful staff.

    "Beautiful view to the sea, very family friendly"

    05/12/2019

    On our Sicily round trip we were again on the farm "Santa Margherita" 3 days to guest.
    The accommodation is beautifully situated on a hillside near the coast. From the terrace you have a fantastic view to the sea and the offshore islands. The accommodation served us as a starting point for the exploration of the closer surroundings at the northeast coast of the island. The beach can be reached by car in a short time.
    But you can also just relax here and enjoy the landscape. There is a very nice, well-kept pool which invites you to take a bath. For children there is a separate pool and a beautiful playground next door. Animals are also available and can be stroked, which is especially good for smaller children.
    The rooms are beautifully and functionally furnished and cleanly cleaned.
    In the restaurant there are typical regional dishes, which are prepared fresh and with love. Individual wishes are gladly considered.

    We were very satisfied all around.

    A wonderful place in the countryside, in contact with nature and animals (donkeys, horses, sheep, lamb, chickens, rabbits, etc..). Lovely view, those who want to bring their dog is welcomed and has a lot of fun to roam free, rustic and pleasant style restaurant, excellent staff and very helpful, owner at hand, food beyond our expectation that is excellent, between a course and the other little waiting time, acceptable price for what you eat, to be returned

    07/11/2018

    Just great! We felt very well from the first hour. Already the warm welcome by "'s parents" Claudia let expect nice days. The excellent restaurant with regional perfectly prepared meals was a "culinary highlight." Also the service was very friendly and accommodating. The folklore evening was really good and the mood increased from hour to hour. The quiet location and the magnificent view of the sea and the Aeolian Islands complete the whole thing. Was really a relaxing and wonderful holiday. Thanks again to the whole team!

    "Family-friendly accommodation in a fantastic environment"

    05/20/2018

    Our small group was in April 2018 a week guest on the farm "Santa Margherita". The season has its special charm, if you want to experience a thriving Sicily and explore the tourist sites relatively undisturbed. The farm is idyllically located above the coast and has a fantastic view of the sea and the offshore islands. He served us as a starting point for daily trips to destinations on the east side of the island. A car is essential. From the first moment we felt in the family atmosphere very well and well received. Especially for children there are plenty of activities, such as several playgrounds or the animals of the farm. The restaurant serves regional cuisine at a high level, so we did not want to miss a day for dinner. The rooms are very lovingly and individually furnished. The pool was not in operation yet. If you still want to swim, Patti or Oliveri beautiful beaches. We really liked the stay on "Santa Margherita". We will be back.

    "Phenomenal panorama and pretty apartment"

    05/04/2018

    You could spend the days on the terrace in front of the apartment, overlooking the bays to Milazzo, gorgeous! Unfortunately, the pool was not ready for the season due to bad weather (end of April) - if you are going there early in the year, better ask beforehand if that is a criterion for you. Beautiful beaches nearby, eg the lakes of Marinello or the beach of Marina di Patti. Highly recommended!

    "relaxed holiday with a gigantic view"

    02/28/2018

    When we decided to make a second holiday in Sicily, it was as clear as day that we wanted to enjoy the gigantic views and delicious food on Santa Margherita again. Here ingredients are freshly processed from the huge vegetable garden, which can also be experienced during a walk through the agriturismo. The breakfast buffet is also impressive and the staff is always ready to fulfill special requests such as a cappuccino or an omelette. There is a children's playground and a beautifully landscaped pool with extra children's pool, where you can relax. For trips in the area a car is required. You should definitely do such excursions. The Etna, the Aeolian Islands, the pilgrimage church Tindari, but also sometimes a drive through the interior of the country and much more make a holiday here an experience. All in all recommended. Many thanks to Giuseppe and his team.

    "wonderful location, delicious food"

    11/17/2017

    We stayed at Santa Margherita for a week in early November and were really excited about it: beautiful apartment with sweeping views of the ocean and the offshore islands from the balcony and sun deck. The property is spacious and beautifully situated, with olive trees (which have just been harvested) and pool (which the children even used once). The breakfast and the evening menu were delicious, Guiseppe and his crew very nice. From here you can make great (hiking) trips. Overall, a very good value for money! The only downer: The animals that are kept there, a bit sorry - z. As chickens and pigs without spout.
