It was a very nice week, I have nothing to complain about.Andrea is very kind. Avola is not very exciting but a good base for Car trips around Southeast sicilia. ----------------------------------------

Don Paolino is no tough guy. He's a sweetheart, quiet but eager to make you feel at home. He remodeled the Tenuta himself (he is an architect) and has quite a talent for making jam and making beds. For six nights we experienced the luxury of a hotel with the peace of a private country home. We enjoyed spending the... More

If you're going to visit Noto, Modica, Siracusa, Vendicari , ecc. look no further. You've found the perfect spot with immaculate and modern rooms, a kitchen that's available to you for snacks and cooking, and a most wonderful and congenial host.

We stayed at Tenuta Don Paolino for 4 nights, and we loved it! We got a big room (for 3 persons, though we were only 2) with a nice bathroom. Loved the shower. The whole B&B was always very clean, and the breakfast was good (white bread, croissants, jams, cheese, juices, whatever coffee you would like). Loved the big porch... More

We spent a week at Tenuta don Paolino and absolutely loved it. I was actually tempted to keep this secret, since we would not want many people to find out about this small gem in one of the most fascinating corners of Sicily. Paolo is a kind and charming host: he prepares great breakfasts in the morning (a rarity in... More

If you're renting a car anyway, why bothering with traffic and tourists right in front of your bedroom window. We found the perfect place while staying at Paolo's pituresque windmill between lovely smelling lemon trees. Calm, clean, great breakfast even for Germans :-) By car you can very easily reach Noto, Siracusa, a natural beach, Roman villa etc. as there... More
