A very unique stay at a very unique location. In a pitoresk quiet village you stay at an amazing place where we felt in a creative state of mind. We had a dinner together with our host which ended in a very interesting and inspiring conversation, this was by sure one of the highlights from our trip to Sicily! Pierfrancesco did everything to give us a relaxing stay in his wonderful mansion. This place is like a paradise for creative people because this walls are full of creative energy just like the owner. We highly recommend this place if you are searching for a unique Sicilian experience!!!! Our only regret was that we only booked for two nights. We will definitely come back here!

A must go when you visit Sicily. A restored late 16th century house with several well decorated and designed rooms. See photo's on the site. Without doubt home away from home. Gio and Pier are excellent host, we felt very welcome. Very relaxed people. The outside terrace with views on the nearby 15th church and the surrounding valleys and hills is a great place to sit, drink, read and talk. Castroreale itself is small but nice. It's like a labyrinth of small cobbled streets and alleys. One huge church (and 7 others), 2 bars/restaurants, one post office, 2 mini supermercato's. 2107 inhabitants. That's all. Enough hills around for cycling or walking. Go there and you'll never forget.

Più che una casa vacanze. Giorgia e Pierfrancesco han saputo creare, in quel piccolo e affascinantissimo borgo che è Castroreale, un oasi di bellezza pura e semplice. La casa trasmette una pace difficile da descrivere a parole, ed in particolare la stanza del tuorlo è semplicemente meravigliosa con dei colori caldi e quel senso di silenzio che solo vivendola si può comprendere. La stanza (come l'intera casa) è arredata con manufatti e oggetti di antiquariato utilizzati con gusto davvero sopraffino. Ogni dettaglio è finemente pensato al fine di creare un ambiente confortevole e permeo di energia. Pierfrancesco e Giorgia due persone splendide e limpide, con i quali condividere momenti e conoscersi. Un luogo pieno di arte in cui sembra che il tempo si fermi per riprendere un po il ritmo naturale delle cose. In casa sono inoltre presenti molti strumenti musicali liberamente utilizzabili tra cui un pianoforte ed un contrabbasso. Se volete farvi del bene all'anima non pensateci due volte. Altra Nota positivissima da aggiungere è che circa a mezz'ora di macchina (ma anche meno) si raggiungono posti incantevoli come ad esempio i laghetti di tindari o sentieri montani nel pieno cuore dei nebrodi. Giorgia, Pier e la piccola Mada, vi abbracciamo e ci rivedremo sicuramente presto. Con affetto, Giuseppe e Marzia

Das Heim von Pierfrancesco und Giorgia ist bis in den letzten Winkel so eingerichtet, dass die Liebe und Kreativität der ganzen Familie zu Ausdruck kommt. Neben dem unglaublich geschmackvollen Haus, trafen wir auf vier sehr liebenswerte Manschen, die uns direkt integrierten, sodass man diesen Ort gar nicht mehr verlassen wollte. Es war eine Freude, bei ihnen zwei wundervolle Tage verbringen zu dürfen und wir können nur jeden beglückwünschen, der Bekanntschaft mit ihnen machen darf!!! Thank you for the music, the sunset, the spirit, the pasta and the perfect time! Piacere!

Wat een prachtige locatie en wat een vriendelijke en attente gastheer, gastvrouw en dochter. Bij aankomst meteen genoten van een Italiaanse lunch, we voelden ons er al snel thuis. De kamer was prachtig, net als het hele huis. Wat een sfeer ademt deze woning uit. Meegenomen op een 'muzikale reis'. Wij hebben genoten!

Pierfrancesco est venu nous chercher alors que nous étions un peu perdu. il est très agréable, courtois, curieux, vifs, musiciens, artiste, convivial, il a un réel sens de l'accueil, au petit soin pour que l'on se sente bien ... nous oriente, nous conseille sur les lieux à voir et nous recommande partout ou l'on va en balade...nous avons eu le sentiment de nous connaitre depuis toujours, la même famille d'âmes... nous n'y étions que pour deux jours et c'est bien trop court ... dés que nous en aurons l'occasion nous y retournerons , la région est magnifique et les gens accueillants... en espérant rencontrer Giorgia la fois prochaine. Amitiés
