We arrived late (almost midnight) - tired and hungry - at Casale Stagnone, but Pietro and Guiseppina made us feel very welcome despite the late hour. Aware that we’d arrived without the chance to do any shopping, Pietro led us to a nearby gelataria where we filled our faces with delicious ice cream. Midnight ice cream-eating is clearly a Sicilian thing - the place was full of families! The following morning Pietro and Guiseppina gave us a breakfast tray, with bread, biscuits, marmalade, fresh coffee and fresh figs from their trees. This was really above and beyond what was expected from an accommodation-only arrangement, but the family’s generosity continued throughout our stay. Casale Stagnone olive oil was there for the using (delicious) and there was almost a daily offering from the farm (figs, grapes) or Guiseppina’s kitchen (Sicilian specialities such as ‘arancine’). The family were very welcoming yet not the least bit intrusive. A perfect balance. Pietro was a great source of information on the area and its history.
The house is comfortable and charming - all modern conveniences (except a dishwasher, but believe me - you’ll love the kitchen sink!). Casale Stagnone is a careful reconstruction with an old Sicilian farmhouse feel, very sensitively created by Pietro & Guiseppina. All that and a sunny roof terrace and shady veranda. Oh how we loved that table on the veranda …. So much so that we didn’t eat out at night at all, but simply had veranda picnics. And breakfasts.
Finally, the animals ... Perhaps the most winning cat we’ve ever met in the person of Amadeo - there was a tug of love going on between us and the other two guests for his attention. Amadeo-time was another reason for not going out at night. The other two cats were sweeties too, but oh, Amadeo! Hens, peacocks, at least one rabbit and the three cats all live the good life in this magical place. I can’t recommend it enough - it really is special.
Wonderful farm house with kind and generous owners.
We loved the location and the surroundings of vineyards olive trees and much more.
The house is in very good order with many traditional touches.
The owners were very welcoming and kind and generously shared some of their seasonal produce with us.
Wir haben uns bei Pietro als einem sehr zuvorkommenden u freundlichen Vermieter ausgesprochen wohl gefühlt. Das Haus eignet sich hervorragend als Ausgangspunkt für Erkundungstouren im Nordwesten Siziliens u bietet gleichzeitig wohltuende Ruhe. Wir können diese Unterkunft wirklich uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
We had a really lovely stay at this country house, which is clean, spacious and very nicely renovated. It’s close to local shops, supermarkets, kitesurfing spots and Marsala itself.
Pietro and his family are very pleasant and kind, and they are at hand in case of questions. They even shared some of their home cooking with us, which we really appreciated.
Ha sido un verdadero acierto encontrar este alojamiento y las personas que lo regentan, Pietro y Giusepina. Desde el primer dia, su atención con nosotros fue maravillosa, atendiendo todas nuestras solicitudes y ayudando en todo acerca de lugares cercanos que visitar.
La casa tiene limpieza en todos los detalles, adornada con muebles de epoca y de manera rustica siciliana.
Casa con mucha luz y vida, rodeada de magnificos viñedos y donde se respira paz.
Para nosotros el buen estar en una casa no sólo lo configura la vivienda, sino las personas que nos ayudaron a estar allí como en casa. Gracias Pietro y Giusepina, por vuestro magnífico hacer y por haber ayudado tanto a disfrutar de nuestras vacaciones.
