We are a couple in the late twenties who stayed at San Noto for a week. The purpose of our trip was to recharge our batteries in a peaceful environment.
Stefania, who owns and manages the estate, is the best host you could ask for. We arrived late in the evening from Catania, exhausted and hungry. Stefania welcomed us at 22:00 and asked if were hungry. For obvious reasons we said yes, and she made sure the nearest restaurant stayed open just for us! We were exalted about the hospitality we had already enjoyed. In the morning we enjoyed the homemade Sicilian breakfast - yoghurt, croissants, pies, eggs, coffee etc. Stefania prepares everything herself and the recipes have been in her family for years. All in all, Stefania has been very helpful throughout our stay and she made us feel like home.
In terms of facilities, there is a small swimming pool which we enjoyed a lot. The view is spectacular and we actually preferred to stay there rather than go to the crowded beach at Brolo. We stayed at the Frantoio room which has a great view and amazing blue bathroom. The room was cleaned every day to a very high standard.
Lastly, before you leave you should consider buying olive oil form Stefania. She made it herself and its history and taste is worth every Euro.
We had the best holidays and enjoyed our time in the middle of Sicilian mountains :-) we recommend San Noto to anyone who needs a break from a busy everyday life.
The area is lovely and suitable for relaxation. You will need a car to see the area, as there is no public transportation. We didn't meet many tourists during our stay (even though July/August is a high season), which gave us a possibility to practise our "non-existent"
Italian and taste the local food. We dined at La Badia (amazing antipasti), Il Barone (great fish) and Al Boschetto (Sicilian lunch). It's important to mention that lunch can be difficult to get in Ficcara as most restaurants don't open before 20:00.
