What can I say, this place is a hidden gem! It is small but convenient and offers all comfort to feel at home away from home. Well equipped kitchenette with basic cooking items present, decent bathroom and even a small patio to sit outside. We were already familiar with this beautiful area of Sicily and found Valderice to be a great, peaceful base to visit the surroundings. There is a supermarket nearby and local pizzeria's are great, for when you don't feel like eating out. What really sets this place apart though are the owners. Roberto sent us the most extensive email with recommended restaurants and places to visit, as well as some helpful tips, and was available for anything really, both before and throughout our stay. He even arranged a last minute wine tasting for us, which was superb! His wonderful mother (who speaks English very well!) welcomed us and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. We could contact her about anything as well, nothing was too much trouble! We liked the place so much we ended up staying another week! Highly recommended!!
