We spent three days in Salvatore and Janne's place. I cannot rate enough the beauty of their agriturismo. Located in one of the valley beside Noto, the place is nested among orange, medlar and lemon trees. There is a tiny creek with its own pond which was a blessing in the morning. Janne and Salvatore were great guests who gave us lots of advice about what to visit on the Noto Valley. Our accommodation was very spacious, comfortable and clean. Despite being close to the water we did not see any mosquitoes! There was a laundry on the main building which we found very useful. Truly a paradise for those loving the lush Sicilian countryside!
Only a few minutes drive from the center of Noto, you are suddenly in the middle of nature. Fruit trees, cats, ponies, a river, a small lake - no city noises. Our stay was a pure relaxation for the soul. From the farm you can drive to many great destinations and Noto is a worth seeing little town. We were very well advised and always received nice in the yard. Our room was a bit shady for the season, as the kitchen is outside. However, we knew that before and also got a price reduction. Therefore, always happy to weider!
