    "Relaxed holiday week with good Sicilian home cooking."


    Friendly front desk, clean apartment with functional facilities (unfortunately very clairaudient and relatively cool in the rain), no TV in our apartment, Wi-Fi was mediocre. Dinner freshly cooked; Cook very nice; typical regional tasty home cooking; Opportunity for cooking class (ravioli with ricotta), simple drinks (water, red wine) to eat, home-made olive oil, pool available, but could not be used in early October due to the weather, largely maintained property with a historic atmosphere (old oil mill) In very rural Surrounding vineyards and olive groves but also some abandoned farms and empty or discontinued real estate; a lot of rubbish on roads and paths; to the coast a good 1/2 hour by car. Catania Airport 1 1/4 hours.

Pleased to meet you, I am Alfredo Rosso and I am 62 years old.

In this photo I am with my brother, Giuseppe Rosso

I have been managing Villa Zottopera since 2000 along with my brother.

We take care of: we are responsible for communication, we take care of the crops, we run the courses.

It was a desire to to keep the family business alive which led me to run an agriturismo.

Our guests' favourite thing about Villa Zottopera is the food.
