Bio-Agriturismo La Casa di Melo is an ancient Sicilian farmhouse, built at the beginning of the 19th century. It's surrounded by a luxuriant organic citrus plantation.
Bio-Agriturismo La Casa di Melo is nearby Fontane Bianche (Siracusa), 1.2 miles (3 kilometers) away from the sea that can be reached by bike, car, or simply walking through wonderful paths going across the house farm fields.
If you want to get in touch with the culture, Bio-Agriturismo La Casa di Melo is the right place: in 15 minutes you can reach Siracusa, in less than 30 minutes Noto, the Baroque capital, or several Wildlife Reserves, as Vendicari or Cavagrande di Cassibile. It will take an hour to reach Pantalica and its Necropolis, or Modica, Scicli, and Ragusa Ibla, three wonderful baroque cities.

Bio-Agriturismo La Casa di Melo has also a wonderful outdoor swimming pool. It has been built using the ancient Sicilian concept called "gebbia". It is a tank used in the fields to collect rainwater and entirely paneled with stone. While swimming in it you can enjoy a romantic view of the Eblei Mountains while listening to the sound of the waterfall. Other onsite amenities include free parking, complimentary wireless Internet access, a bar, and the restaurant Casa di Melo serving local cuisine.

Casa di Melo is a beautifully renovated and decorated house. The rooms are immaculately clean, very spacious and comfortable. Our terrace had a view of the gorgeous pool and fennel and citrus fields. Breakfast was delicious with homemade cakes, cookies, biscotti, salamis and cheeses, fresh fruit salad, cereal and yogurt and served outdoors on the terrace. Rita was extremely helpful planning our itinerary, providing us with great restaurant recommendations, and very attentive to our needs. We loved our stay and would recommend it without hesitation. It's a very special place, and very convenient to visit the great places in the area (if you have a car).

Beautiful place! We were greeted by our host Stefania; both she and Chiara were friendly, helpful and attentive. The house was absolutely wonderful and our accommodations were excellent--we could have stayed several days. Chiara offered us local wine, fruits, meats and cheeses when we arrived. The pool is amazing and photographs do not do it justice. They provided a delicious breakfast. Our only problem was that we had difficulty finding it--maps do not clearly indicate the location. Aside from that, we loved it!

It was an extremely pleasant stay. The staff is not only welcoming but very competent. We had continuing assistance in Spanish, excellent advices for eating and sightseeing. But the best is the hotel itself, which is not only comfortable but also delightful, every detail is taken with care and excellent taste. We hope we will come back and recommend this hotel to all those that love Sicily as it was once, with its parfums and tastes.

We need to go back. We dealt mostly with the owner and his sister, though their mother spoke with us too. This is a family endeavor and is a little aout of the way, but worth every minute we spent looking for it (we were driving)! The loving work the family has put into there farm is inspiring. The lemons and oranges were fantastic. The soaps they make (after a recipe from their granfather, breakfast was simple but heavanly and dinner (you have to make reservations) is cooked especially for you! Great pool, with a wonderful panoramic wiew. Easy access to Siracusa. They will see us again.

Wonderful location, environment, friendliness and service. A peaceful retreat with a family atmosphere. Not a place to visit if you want a noisy night life, but to unwind, relax and enjoy good food and an oasis of tranquility, we have found nowhere better. The dogs are friendly too!

A beautiful place in a great location. The citrus groves surronding the grounds are wonderful, adding the smell of lemon, orange and mandarin blossoms to the lovely patios. For breakfast the abundance of tasty Italian cakes and savory pastries - all homemade, including the jams,and fresh orange juice every morning - was amazing. The room was spacious, very nicely decorated with antique furniture and had a beutiful view onto the orchard. Lorenzo and Chiara are welcoming, warm and very helpful (both are fluent in English.) They are now offering an option for an evening meal. It was outstanding, all homemade and organic, prepared by a pair of wonderful chefs. Wish we had been able to stay longer.

imagine an old italian farmhouse in a beautiful rural location, renovated to a very high standard with every attention to detail, and with orange trees all around and you are most of the way there. Throw in lovely food by people who clearly understand sicilian cuisine and are were doing organic before it was "invented" (and some lovely dogs) and you won't want to leave.

Location was excellent. Breakfast was outstanding, with a great variety of sweet and savoury pastries plus freshly squeezed orange juice (made with oranges grown on farm), also home-made jams. In addition they serve an outstanding value evening meal, again everything home made, including limoncello and a similar liqueur made from mandarin oranges. The family (Chiara & Lorenzo) are very welcoming as are their team

La Casa di Melo is an excellent B and B. The owners have renovated and decorated it beautifully and the citrus groves surrounding are wonderful. It is in a great location not far from Noto, Avola, and Siricusa if you have a car. Our room was small and single beds are narrow but comfortable. There are larger rooms available. The breakfast is incredible. Everything is organic and the choices are unending. Lorenzo and Chiara are warm, welcoming and helpful with restaurant suggestions. We loved their home and their dogs as well.

We know from reviews that we would have a wonderful time, but our experience exceeded our expectations. Our hosts Lorenzo and Chiara were very gracious and attentive. We took their advice about dining and were impressed enough for two dinner visits. We stayed three nights and that wasn't long enough. Next time we will stay much longer. A relaxing interlude amongst day trips to various sights in the area. We love their dogs too.

Our nicest stay in all of Italy. We wish we could have stayed longer. The room seemed brand new, and the grounds were gorgeous. We loved the breakfast; everything was homemade and grown right on the farm. They also make and sell their own jam, honey, soap, and almonds. We bought many to take home with us so we could taste the warmth of Sicily once we were home. The owners were so warm and friendly, and so were the farm dogs & cats. We hope to back someday soon and bring our family with us.

Upon arriving you step out of your car into a fairytale. The carpark is nestled in an orange grove and the sweet smell of orange blossoms permeates the place. Sitting outside in the garden partaking a sumptous breakfast with home made crepes and marmalade is heavenly. The staff is very pleasant and at least several people speak very good English. The location is perfect for sightseeing in Syracuse or travelling south on the eastern peninsula to hike and visit beaches. It is a guarentee that you will leave with wonderful memories and a scent you will never forget.

We really enjoyed our 4 nights at Casa di Melo (Hi to Melo the dog & Wendi the puppy). It is very convenient for visiting Siracusa of course, but we also made car excursions to Caltigirone/Ragusa and Noto/Marzamemi. The owners were very welcoming & breakfasts with local ingredients were excellent. Agriturismos in Sicily are the way to travel - talking to the owners gave us a real flavour of local life.

With only the GPS coordinates it was not easy to find (our GPS tried to send us over fields several times). Once found it was worth the effort. A very warm welcome from the young owners. The transformation of the farmhouse is still on-going but the hotel part was well equipped and comfortable. The garden will become even more attractive when the trees get bigger. Breakfast was the opportunity to taste the local produce.
