“«Five-star recommended» “A beautiful 1700 building just renewed. The room is like a small suite with exposed stone and luxury bathroom. Everything is perfect, like the breakfast on the terrace. Noto is a beautiful city of art and the owner of the house, Ivan, gave us a lot of advice, took us around the city to see the sights and told us the history of Sicily”.”
