Welcome to B&B Tra I Frutti, a big Sicilian country house with swimming pool, at 15 minutes to the Valley of the Temples, in an area that lies between the fresh hills and the sea, set amid olive trees, citrus groves and vineyards, a unique place where you can relish the fragrance of almond flowers.

We welcome you amid the fruit and to the countryside, where the weary traveller can rest and unwind after a sunlit day spent discovering beaches, hamlets perched beneath imposing towers, timeworn churches, winding country roads and mountain pathways.

Welcome to this land, immersed in silence, where you will be quite amazed at how many places there are to be explored, places known only to the few, each shrouded in its own age-old history and secrets, places awaiting to be revealed to curious eyes.
You may choose to spend your days in our recently-built country villa or in the old, refurbished country house with its stone walls.
The veranda overlooks the swimming pool and hammock space, these are ideal places where you can freshen up, sunbathe, unwind, chat or simply meditate. The gardens surrounding the living area is a sizeable 12.000 acres where you can leisurely stroll amid trees and plants bearing a wide variety of fruit: figs, prickly pears, lemons, oranges, almonds, mulberries , apples, pears, cherries, apricots and many others. From our vineyard, olive trees and orchard we provide our guests at meals with homemade wine, olive-oil and a choice selection of vegetables, tomatoes, peppers, egg-plants, onions, melons,lettuce, cucumbers, pumpkins, courgettes,potatoes, peas, and beans.

Being just off the main road it was very easy to reach lots of other places. Owners were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our evening meals in non-touristy village down the road.

You will not meet friendlier or more gracious prople than Paola and Giuseppe. They excelled in all aspects as hosts, with the attitude of our being friends rather than paying customers. Tra i Frutti is located truly among the many fruit trees. Breakfast is delicious and is mixed with tipical items from the area. Parking is tight as is the access road, which is at an awkward position to the intersection. A car is mandatory for this B & B. Construction on SS640 causes stressful and slow driving from Agrigento. For the rest of 2012 and into 2013+ this will be going on. If you are arriving from the south, visit The Valley of the Temples first!

There was a minor booking problem but it was sorted so properly and quickly that it only served to enhance the reputation of the establishment. The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. It is a fair way from the main temple attraction but in beautiful surroundings. The journey is a little tricky at the moment (may 2012) due to extensive road improvements but was well instructed.

We enjoyed our stay in Tra i Frutti very much - Paola and Guiseppe were extremely friendly and very eager to give us plenty of competent information about the area. The wine and the olive oil they produce are very tasteful. The pool area was not open yet - it was still too cold during our stay beginning of April.The breakfirst was rich and contained local specialties. This B&B is excellent for everybody who wants to visit the cultural highlights of the area and/or relax in a friendly atmosphere.

Paola & Giuseppe run a great B&B with the genuine hospitality and care you hope for. We staid 4 nights in mid June 09. The room 'Mandorla' was great. We didn't use the airco but did use the anti-mosquito-pads. Exceptional was the breakfast choice. The pool was great and well taken care of. 2 of the 6 pool chairs were ready for replacement but that was never a problem as there were never more than 4 guests at the pool side. We tried several of the local restaurants. Good food at Concordia, a large resto back at the gas-station on the SS640 just nearby. A genuine Sicilian atmosphere on this inside. Same menu at Casale 'downtown' Castrofilippo. Check out pizzeria Jacks in Castrofilippo & try the 3-gusti combo. And also here just sit and watch the locals and their family life. There's more places in Racalmuto too. All cheap as this is local and not tourist/'taormina' ambiance/prices. There's also a large Carrefour-supermarket and shopping mall a few km north on the SS640 ; weird but handy ;-)

We spent 3 marvelous days in this B&B. Our hostes Paola & Giuseppe were very friendly and spoke a good English and also French. They also gave us some advises for our visits in Agrigento,to find some restaurants or nice beaches... Strong points : hospitality, fantastic breakfast,house located in a big and quiet garden, nice swimming pool, very close to the small and typical city of Racamulto, well situated to visit Agrigento and the beaches...

How to reach Tra i Frutti Bed and Breakfast

By car

From Catania take the Autostrada A19 for Palermo and take the Caltanissetta exit. Continue on Statale 640 until and follow the sign Agrigento. After 35 km you meet at your right the trade center "Centro commerciale le vigne" and the first sign for Racalmuto. Don't take it, but follow Agrigento till you reach the second exit for Racalmuto (called "Castrofilippo”) at the 26 Kilometre of the SS640. The right exit is temporary closed so continue till the ESSO gasoline area you see after 500 mt on your left, enter there and take again the highway in Caltanisstta direction, after 500 metres take on your right the exit Castrofilppo. Follow the signal “bed & breakfast” and you will arrive.

After few kilometres on your left you see the signs Racalmuto/Grotte. Don’t follow this signs and continue toward Caltanissetta.Follow the way and the yellow signs for Caltanissetta/Canicattì.
