We stayed at the bnb for one night with an additional couple. Olga and Carmelo (Mr.Big ;) are VERY nice people who care so much to make sure everything is going smoothly! So thank you for that! In the night we arrive Olga make a home made dinner for us, and we all sat down together for a great wine and meal and amazing conversations! This place it's a true meaning or a cozy authentic b&b. The property itself is stunning and full of little gems where one can hang out and enjoy this amazing environment. We slept at the highest level in the house and it a bit hot during warm summer night. So would recommend to stay in one of the bedrooms with a window. This place is definitely one of our favorites bnbs and made our Sicilian experience so much better!

Our stay at AnticaMenta was the trip of a lifetime. Coming from USA to Pietraperzia to research relatives who emigrated to America, Olga and Carmelo were incredibly hospitable, and instrumental to this journey and its success. They made phone calls for us, and appointments for us, translated for us, and opened their home to the people we met -- who happened to be our family!! And the house itself is so beautiful, the garden very clearly a labor of love. It was a gorgeous place to relax and experience the beautiful countryside of our ancestors. I cannot recommend Casa AnticaMenta enough. Grazie di tutto, Olga e Carmelo!

After it proved difficult to find the property by the directions given, Olga picked us up in the village of Pietraperzia, which was very close to the house. The house itself was marvellous! Olga and Carmelo took great care in restoring this little paradise, including the garden full of fruit trees and romantic seating corners. Our lovely hosts provided a simple but tasty breakfast, fresh towels each day and cooked us a nice dinner one night. It was around 30 minutes by car to Sicily's highlight Roman Villa Casale and 45 minutes to Agrigento.

Olga and Carmelo are superb hosts. We had an eventful arrival at Antica Menta stranded by a puncture with no spare wheel and no GPS. Olga and Carmelo spent hours driving around trying to find us and then to sort out the car. Little did we know we were on a road that had been closed for 10 years! That dedication to ensure we enjoyed our holiday was maintained throughout our stay. Their home is a beautiful place with lots of lovely spots to sit and read, enjoy the sun or the shade in beautiful surroundings. Olga and Carmelo have worked very hard to make a beautiful house and garden that is a pleasure to spend time in. Every day we were welcomed with a delicious breakfast and helpful advice on where to go and what to do. On two occasions when we wanted to visit unusual places Olga phoned ahead to arrange personal guides who added greatly to the enjoyment of our visits. For those Brits not used to AirBnB this is nothing like B and B UK style. Olga and Carmelo are generous easy hosts ready to help and happy to engage as much as you want. We were able to cook if we wanted and were welcome guests at a lovely dinner that took place during our stay and we joined them for a great evening of Sicilian Guitar at a local bar that we would have never known about without them. Antica Menta is excellently located to visit all of Southern Sicily, castles, towns, scenery and ancient Greek and Roman ruins and if you want to go to the cities Palermo and Cantina are only 90 minutes away. There is masses to see and do and good beaches are also within an easy drive. I can 100% recommend this experience.

Our first experience with Airbnb and we are sure there will be nothing better than this. It was just amazing!! Olga and Carmello (or marcello or carmillo haha) made us feel like home. We joint breakfast and diner every day, so we've had a lot of interesting conversations about Sicily. Olga's cooking skills are very good so we really recommend you to join diner to taste the real silician food. Not only the food but also the house and the garden was completely in sicilian style. In and outside there are a lot of places where you can relax and enjoy the nature. Especially near the pool. Casa anticamenta is in the middle of nowhere, but you can easily discover the environment by car. Its also possible to go on day trips everywhere in Sicily, because casa anticamenta is just in the middle of Sicily. Olga and Carmello we want to thank you one more time!! Hope to see you again soon! Ciao ciao

Belle maison. Très bel endroit. Les propriétaires vivants dans le salon de la maison limite l'intimité recherchée pour un logement entier. Si vous cherchez une chambre privée alors vous vous y trouverez très bien. L'hiver, couvrez vous. Il s'agit d'une vieille maison.

Response from Elena:
Si vous aviez lu la description et les règles de la maison aurait su quoi choisir. Nous avons clairement ecrit que les propriétaires vivent en bas. La maison est décrite comme une maison ancienne, entièrement rénovée et chauffée. Nous avons une cheminée, deux poêles à bois, une pompe à chaleur et un bain chaud. Malgré la neige, inhabituelle en Sicile, la température dans la maison était au-delà de 21 degrés.
