apartments on agritourismo near Piazza Armenia, Sicily

March 2006, 3 days


Savoca was an agriturismo, about five kilometers outside of Piazza Armenia. A nice peaceful country setting. They had horses and picnic areas and a pool.

Nearby Amenities

There was nothing around for several kilometers. You could drive about five kilometers to stores and restaurants.

The House/Apartment

Most of Savoca appeared to be a B&B type place with about a dozen rooms. It was very quiet and there were places to walk in the woods and fields.


There was a very nice pool and they had picnic places.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The apartment was clean and the furniture was in good shape. There was no living room just a kithen/dining area.


The bedroom was large and had a double bed and a twin bed. There was plenty of space in the bedroom.


While I didn't do any cooking it apeared that there were enough pots and pans and dishes.

Problems or Bonuses

The owners, an extended family, spoke no English. This was not a problem for me and my Italian is minimal. There were kids riding bicycles and adults riding horses. Dogs and peacocks wandered through the property. They were in the process of building a restaurant (I think, my Italian stinks) about two hundred meters from the pool.

There was a connecting door from the kitchen to another room where our friends were staying.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The people were very nice but no one spoke English. The website was accurate. We paid the B&B rates of 30 euro per person and 18 euro for dinner because we were moved to the apartment from a room that had no hot water.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I would use this again because I liked the location and the place was nice.

Things to do in this area

Savoca is in the middle of Sicily so anywhere in Sicily is reachable in about two hours. Villa Imperiale del Casale is about ten minutes away.
