A lovely B&B in a secluded location, close to the beach and yet 15 min to Noto. Facility has been recently renovated. Rooms are bright and spacious, but the aesthetic can said to be lacking in old-world warmth or charm. Comfortable, but in a modern way. There is a large breakfast room, but the common area living room is not inviting to use beyond that. I don't know if this is normally the case, or if during the high season the guests are invited to use the common living room at night. Since we were there with another couple in the off season, is was a bit strange not to have a sitting area that we could use outside of our rooms (during warmer months there are outdoors areas to use, even at night).
Additionally, it seems that this place is not really sure if it is a B&B or a hotel. From the guest experience, it therefore lacks what either one of these fully offer. Full-time staff on hand, or on your own with little or no direction or assistance, except for at breakfast? The continental breakfast itself was very basic, with little choice of items. Not what a B&B should aspire to.
Additionally, to accommodate foreigners, there has to be some ability to communicate in more than one language. The owner did not speak English, and our Italian is quite basic. There was someone there to help out, who was present for just part of the day and who could speak English, and this helped us immensely. But whether there is full time staff there during the high season is unknown.
Gut: Clean, modern, and super quiet. A very good location from which to explore the entire SE region of Sicily.
Nicht so gut: Hosting services; common sitting area; fuller range of breakfast items (hot and cold).
Lage: Very close to the beach. 15 minutes to Noto. 5 minutes to the motorway (less if it the nearby exit is ever completed).
