We stayed at this house for two weeks over the Christmas holidays. It is the upper floor and a half of a large building that is also attached to working parts of the farm. The caretakers live in one part and are available at any time of the night or day if you have issues. They were very friendly and continually checked in with us to make sure we didn't have problems. There were also other people from the farm who welcomed us and our children which gave us a true Sicilian experience. The house is large and was adequately furnished and equipped. We cooked many meals and enjoyed the authentic atmosphere. The kids were able to run around and play outside without any fear of being too loud or getting hurt. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. However, we were there during the coldest part of the year and the inside of the house was quite cold. There are heaters in each room (to be paid separately but not expensive) so the bedrooms were warm at night. The kitchen and place where we ate had no way to be heated and, if you turned on too many heaters/lights/etc at once, the circuits blew. Additionally, the doors and windows were drafty. I bet this house would be a delight during the spring and fall, and even summer. A little insulation taping and better heating could be used in the winter. If you are looking for a quiet retreat away from the city with plenty of space to spread out and run around, this is your place. It is near the American navy base by Catania and close enough for day trips to Syracusa, Taormina, Caltagirone and the like. Keep in mind the authentic atmosphere means everything is not 100% modern. The wifi was great and there was a pool that is probably open in the summer.
