Buen alojamiento, la casa es grande y cómoda aunque dos de los baños no funcionaban y hay demasiadas hormigas en algún dormitorio. Las instalaciones son estupendas pero hay que pagar bastante más por la piscina y la calefacción (excesiva en los dormitorios) La atención por parte de los propietarios es muy buena
My husband''s family''s roots are in Calabria and Sicily, and we were thrilled to find Tenuto Don Ruggero to have as a base for a family reunion. The whole family, 21 of us at a time, 23 in total, fit very comfortably into this lovely property. Polizzi Generosa is a convenient, centrally located base from which we explored the food and history of Palermo, the cathedral at Monreale, the beaches at Cefalu, the Greek ruins of Agrigento, and the history of Siracusa. At night, we gathered for cocktails on the truly stunning veranda overlooking the nearby valley. Four of our nights, we arranged with Friends of Tuscany to have a chef prepare a meal for the whole group in the villa''s kitchen, and we had memorable dinners together in the massive, gorgeous dining hall. Two nights we reserved dinner in nearby Castellana, which is only a couple of kilometers away. The rooms are very comfortable, the beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were very clean. Many of the rooms had beautiful balconies. An inconvenience for those of us used to American rentals, some of us were disappointed that there was no shampoo in the bathrooms and limited toilet paper, so if you book this lovely place, make sure to bring toiletries and also kitchen cleaning supplies, such as paper towels and detergents. We only had one problem - a fuse blew in one of the rooms - and it was fixed within the hour. The owners, Simonetta and Claudia, were very helpful and communicative. I would strongly recommend Tenuto Don Ruggero to any group, with the understanding that staying at this villa is self-serve and self-catering. This is a working farm and the olive oil in the kitchen is from its own olives. We made sure to buy a jar of it and will enjoy it now that we are home. We hope to come back someday!
The location is unspoiled by the effects of tourism. It is located high on a mountain away from the hustle and bustle of the urban noise. We loved the location and waking up in the morning to the fresh breeze and the sounds of the countryside was a unique experience. The place has all the mod cons and although we were in a large group of 16 people we never felt cramped or in any way overcrowded. All the bedrooms had their own individual bathrooms and there were enough tables and chairs located on the different levels so we could all eat together or individually as we pleased. Castellana Sicula is a small village about 3kms away, it has all the shops and amenities that one may require. The locals are very friendly and willing to help. Their goods are priced for the locals and not inflated as in other tourist locations. Great ice-cream and cake shops in the centre. We would definitely recommend the place to anyone with kids and senior people since there are bedrooms on the ground floor and ramps to access all the locations. There are also gates to block off the swimming pool.
