We spent a wonderful week in the Casale Pergola. Very close to the ocean, it was still secluded and quiet. The house was spacious with high ceilings and the terrace was perfect for every time of the day or night (even when it was raining!). Signore Trapani welcomed us when we arrived und explained everything in detail. We were allowed to take eggs from the chicken every morning and really enjoyed the other animals that lived on the area (e.g. two donkeys and a horse).
The beautiful city of Noto was only 10 minutes by car and we went there every second night.

We stayed at Casa della Pergola in the second week of September with our 1-year old son. This house is very child friendly. Many toys and the big garden with many animals gave him a great time. Picking up the fresh eggs in the morning was one of his favorite things to do.
The house is very complete in its decoration. It's perfect for a family, having 2 bedrooms. It's not very large, but we sat mostly outside on the terrace anyway.
The owner was very helpful with picking us up outside the village, providing fresh fruits from his own garden and tips where to go. It was only a short ride to the beach, which was also great with it's gentle slope.
Noto is a nice village close by to enjoy dinner or just walking around.
Apart from mosquito's and some flies we had an absolutely fantastic time here. I would advise it to anybody. This house shares it's garden with yet another house for rent from the same owner (limone). It would be great to travel there with some friends and still enjoy your own privacy.

We stayed at Casale della Pergola in august 2013.
The house is really nice , well furnished and fully equipped. The property is eco-friendly as the owner Gioacchino pays very much attention about planet's safety : the house has solar energy for heating water and in the garden, fruits and plants are cared without pesticides. You can taste grapes, lemons, apples and even bananas with full flavour , nowaydays it's a very rare opportunity.
The garden is a perfect place where to take shelter where you don't want to be surrounded by other people but just by green and animals like a horse , two donkeys and some hens. Animals have their own "private place" in there and do not invade any space, just offers some funny faces when you go to visit them, and hens can be very precious for their fresh eggs for breakfast in the morning.
This "green corner" is located few steps from the colourful beach of Marina di Noto, and from this location it's very easy to reach beautiful seaside corners like San Lorenzo, Vendicari or villages like Marzamemi. Noto and avola are very close too.
It's a perfect house for families, but also for group of friends as it's connected with another property owned by Gioacchino.
He's a very kind manager, always ready to help for any need.
He equipped the house also with TV satellite and wifi, therefore even "always-connected" guys can live in peace their vacation time.

What a little paradise! Quiet place, large garden with lemontrees, some chicken, goat and two monkeys, very nice for the children (our son is 5). there is another holydayhouse in the garden at a distance, but it is not disturbing, it is private enough. The house is very comfortable, larger then it looks in the pictures. The beach is in walking distance and was quiet in the periode we where there (beginning of may). Very friendly and simpatico owner!
Really a place for relaxing and for making little trips. Noto was a pleasant surpise to visit again after more then 20 years, beatifully restored. Definitely a place to return to!
supernice spot to relax and to get to know the island

Very friendly owner, who speaks good english. Clean and cosy house, with good matrasses surrounded by lemon and orange trees (to be picked for a freshly squeezed orange juice). Very suitable for children as they have goats, dunkeys, a horse and chicken ( a good source for the breakfast egg). Local beach(sand) is within walking distance, as well as a mini market. Cava grande, Nature reserve Vendicari and the beautiful city of Noto close by.
countryside by the beach in Sicily
Left on 10/07/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Oreste Segatto
Casale della pergola is conveniently located a quarter of a mile away from the Marina di Noto beach and only a few minute drive from other wonderful and wild beaches such as those in the Vendicari Natural Reserve.
The house itself is tiny but was spacious enough for the four of us. The garden is very nice and provides restful shadow throughout the day.
The kitchen is not particularly well equipped, the quality of dishware and cookware should definitely be improved.
The landlord was kind and helpful. A major inconvenience, though, is the fact that the Casale della pergola sits in the middle of Mr. Trapani's property. He, and some relatives of his, ended up visiting us almost every day during our 2 week stay in order to attend the lemon tree plantation, the vineyard etc. This was annoying at times, since one may not fully enjoy the privacy that the beautiful garden affords.

Lovely experience in every respect, hopefully to be repeted.

I booked the house via internet, so obviously I was a bit anxious as to the possible difference between what one can see on the pictures, and what one actually finds upon arrival. Well, if there was any difference compared to what I had expected, it consisted in good surprises only. A lovely, cosy house with everything one can possibly need, happily situated within a short walking distance from the beach, yet self-contained and peaceful in the midst of a large magnificent garden. The owner was very friendly, helpful and forthcoming, and this part of Sicily is simply delightful in every respect. The whole area is rather quiet, so I wouldn't recommend it to young people looking for a party. But, for everybody else, it's simply paradise.

Empfangen wurden wir von Signor T. sehr herzlich mit einer Flasche eigenen Rotweins. Herr T. spricht englisch ist zuverlässig und gut zu erreichen. Das Haus ist entsprechend der Beschreibung sauber, sehr schön eingerichtet, gut ausgestattet und war eine hervorragende Wahl für unseren (Familie mit 5-jährigem Kind und Großmutter) Urlaub Ende März. Da das Wetter mitspielte konnte man mit Erlaubnis des Padrone die Orangen fürs Frühstück auf der Terrasse direkt vom Baum pflücken. Auch waren die sich in der Nähe des Hauses befindlichen Ställe für Hühner und Pferd eine willkommene abwechselung für unseren Sohn, wenn er Herrn T. bei der Fütterung helfen durfte. Zu empfehlen sind, auch wenn man den ganzen Tag auf der Terrasse verbringen könnte, die Strände des Naturschutzgebietes, welches südlich von Noto Marina beginnt. Alles in allem ein sehr schöner Ort zu dem wir sehr gerne zurückkehren."
un bel casale molto curato e pulito
Left on 06/15/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | SimonaB
Siamo rimasti soddisfatti di questo bel alloggio immerso nel verde, molto curato e pulito. L'ampio portico si affaccia sull'agrumeto e per noi è stato uno spazio ideale per colazioni e cene tranquille all'aperto, con il barbecue a portata di mano e la gradevole compagnia dei simpatici ed educati animaletti che vivono all'ombra dell'agrumeto: Paprika la cavalla, le due caprette e le generose galline che garantiscono uova fresche quotidiane gentilmente condivise dal cordiale proprietario e curatore del casale, il sig. Gioacchino. La locazione è pratica per raggiungere comodamente a piedi la spiaggia attrezzata attraversando il centro abitato, ed è a pochi minuti di macchina dagli ingressi alle incantevoli e naturalistiche spiagge della riserva di vendicari.
