Guest houses and b&b
A bed and breakfast, as well as guest houses, will cost you from 23 euros for two per night. For example, Giuffre’s Rooms in Palermo, or Graziella Rooms and Apartments in Trapani. I’ll also bring here our dear b & b Sicilio in Santa Flavia , where we spent 9 days. A very cozy place, a very helpful host Nino, who is ready to do everything possible and impossible for his guests. From 40 euros per night with breakfast (by the way, breakfast is very hearty, albeit portioned, unlike many hotels in Sicily – hot snacks, sweets, fruits, yogurt, jam, juice, tea / coffee)
In Sicily, a large selection of villas in different parts of the island. The cost starts from 48 euros for four. For 100 euros for two you will receive, for example, Casale Amato – a villa, calculated. for 4 people, 36 km from Palermo airport. Four-bedroom villa in Taormina Villa Mimosa – from 425 euros.
If you want to live on a farm, away from the bustle of the city, then Sicily is a great place for this. The island has a large selection of agricultural farms and guest houses, remote from the main tourist cities. Villa Del Bosco in Calatafimi, located on 15 hectares of agricultural land, will cost you only 35 euros per day for two! And how do you like the B&B Tra i Frutti , located among vineyards and olive trees? It features a pool and barbecue!
