We came to Pinella’s and Luca’s house to rest after a stressful year we’d had. We were looking for a quiet country place with nice surroundings, located not that far from Sicilian attractions. Their offer looked just like what we needed. But the reality was so much better that we could even imagine.
Firstly, the surroundings are very beautiful – nice mountainous region, in spring covered in thousands flowers (mille flori!). The nearby city of Caltagirone is very nice and full of attractions. The house’s garden is a little haven where you can rest, read and watch all kinds of birds. You have hammocks, comfy chairs and everything you need.
The house itself is a piece of art with lots of charming little details, beautiful paintings and memorabilia from the region/Sicilia. It is also very comfortable – with wifi, TV and nice sofas in the living room to read in the evening. Our room and private bathroom were very nice, clean and had everything that was needed. Both kitchens (internal one and the other on the outside) are amazing and well equipped. Nice thing was that Pinella thought about us and prepared stuff for more European breakfast with eggs from her own chickens!
Pinella e Luca are perfect and welcoming hosts! Even though their knowledge of English is limited at times (there is always a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translator available!) we still had very interesting conversations about what to see and were to eat (my advice – listen to them!), about Sicilian history, literature, food and life. If you’re willing to, you can be a part of many fantastic things that are happening at Nepitella’s, meet amazing people and dine like true Sicilians.
So we not only rest in perfect conditions, with perfect hosts, but now we have family and friends in Sicilia, that we cannot wait to see again(URL HIDDEN)
