    "Not recommended"


    We were in this "farm" in August, the reception was very bad: we were too early in advance of the time (we arrived around 13 and we had indicated as time 15 hours). The lady sent us back later and told us that we could not have lunch in the bag anywhere within the facility. So we came back around 4 p.m. and the first thing we were asked for were the documents and the balance of the stay!!!
    They accompanied us in our "accommodation" that has nothing to do with the photographs of the site: it resembled in fact a wooden container (!), with air conditioning at most ... we then asked where was the nearest supermarket for shopping and, unloaded the luggage, we went; shortly after we received the call to solicit documents (which were still in the luggage) and the balance!!!
    We have never been to any place where they ask for the balance before they even start their stay. The reception received has nothing to do with the typical hospitality of Sicilians, already proven on the contrary in other farms where the guest is at the center of everything.
    Finally, the photos on the site are not very real ... there should also be those of the "houses-containers" of wood and communicate to those who book where exactly is your accommodation, so you can also choose based on that.
    Strongly discouraged.

    Agriturismo Il Giardino del Sole answers
    Dear Mrs. Papa Elena, when you requested and then booked the apartment-bungalow you were informed of the type of room, rate, check-in and check-out times, the necessary deposit and the balance of services on arrival in addition to the times of breakfast, lunch and dinner.
    Of all this communication sent meticulously by e-mail, what did you receive? Did you read it?
    You booked by accepting all the rules of the house and then:
    - You got here two hours early;
    - You wanted to have a picnic in the restaurant areas among the paying customers;
    - You tricked and cheated the receptionist who, with typical Sicilian warmth and confidence, trusted your words: "let's go and put down the suitcases in the room and we'll come and give the documents and pay for them" and instead you got into the car and ran away. Getting into trouble (they are PENAL violations) with the state police that requires the immediate registration of guests before entering the room, and in this sense I invite you to read the Legislative Decree of January 7, 2013 of the Ministry of Interior and art. 109 of the T.U.L.P.S. (Consolidated Text of the Law of Public Security).
    - Putting the receptionist in trouble who trusted you.
    Finally we want to tell you that on our site there are ALL the photos and the apparta-bungalow (only housing unit with kitchen by the way, all the others are just rooms and therefore difficult to be wrong) is located in the bungalow section of the site and is not a "container" but a cottage with walls and natural wood roof with a large veranda surrounded by nature and with excellent air conditioning (as confirmed by you).
    Even in our Agriturismo the guest is the focus of attention and you would have been the same, but in a week's stay we have not seen you, except from the cameras enter and exit ... maybe you were hiding after the mean figure of arrival?
    Do you advise against it? Instead, we advise you to learn to read, choose and respect what is proposed to you and the honest work of a family that lives and works honestly. Also remember that we Sicilians are warm and welcoming with those who are friendly and honest and if he tells you "unload your bags and I'll be back" as soon as you unload your bags back, does not think of other 100 things first.
    Best regards
    The Ferrante Family
