The rural setting was charming and we loved the rustic building and decoration. A great place to relax and have wholesome healthy food. The staff were always very helpful. It can be tricky to find, even if they give you instructions of how to get there. It's easy to miss the right turn and that means quiet a few miles extra on the motorway.
We liked the sheer remoteness of the hotel, right away in the hills. The restored building was beautiful and had stables attached for riding which we would make use of another visit. Good,homely but unsophisicated fixed menu in the evening was good value.
Nice farm just a bit off the A19 motorway in the middle of a beautiful countryside, spacious two storey rooms, friendly staff breakfast could be better for a farm
The staff were very pleasant and welcoming. the views were very good. lovely swimming pool.very good value for money.
The local cuisine in the cooking and the tranquil, beautiful setting of the hotel.
the drive to Monaco di Mezzo is stunning, exit Ressutano off motorway, through tunnel then keep right, at T-junction first sign. Great pool, lovely food, we arrived around lunchtime and staff very happily made us sandwiches. Rooms very large and clean, very quiet location. Must be even more beautiful in spring (we were there end of July) nothing
Back to nature The isolation
Beautiful location, very friendly staff, lovely evening meal
Lovely stay, room clean and spacious. the setting is amazing with a pool in the middle of the mountains and land. The breakfast was a bit light and we were expecting more but overall we loved it.
The swimming pool is nice and kept clean, although many whasps fly around it, The paths around the hotel en the outside of the hotel look fine. the room has airco. The dinner in the evening was very nice and well taken care of. The hotel doesn't give you a welcome feeling. People are kind but a bit unsophisticated. Beds are very hard, the rooms are not very sound proof, but when we were there it was quiet in the hotel so we didn't have a problem with it. In a hotel every day your room should be tidied, but that is not the case here. Breakfast is poor. Some dwellings on the premises are still in poor state and lay there unused. The room is sober and not very clean.
This was just an experience of a lifetime. The owners were so giving and helpful, it was like as if you were welcomed into their family! Tip: stay at the hotel for dinner- it is amazing!!! Just don't eat for a day beforehand. Just one slight thing - we did not have air con in our room. Nevertheless we coped.
Casale Villa Raino is a place for those who want to experience the "real Sicily" and enjoy the countryside. The hotel is ecofriendly, the food prepared and served by Aldo and his family is marvellous and plenty. The family is very hospitable and communicative. Large swimming pool, beautiful views. The place was renovated some time ago and the rooms and area could benefit from a little contemporary restyling of those renovations (without touching on the beautiful antique furniture, items or building). On weekends (Sunday) the pool is also open to guests who do not stay at the hotel, and therefore less quiet - just good to know.
The room was very good, the owner a delightfull person, a very good swimming pool, and a wonderful place to rest.
