We loved our stay at this old manor house on the edge of Piazza Arminena. It is not fancy but was just what we were looking for. The beds and rooms were comfortable, but what we really enjoyed were the pool, the manor house courtyard, and the hikes into the countryside from the manor house entrance. We arrived famished, mid-day, by taxi and did not want to venture into town. Fortunately, the friendly staff were willing to prepare delicious sandwiches with fresh bread, tomatoes and mozzarella accompanied by wine. Both nights we had a delicious dinner in the courtyard --a highlight of our stay and reason enough to select this accommodation. We were in the area to see the fabulous mosaics at Villa Romana del Casale but if you have more time and are interested in Greek history, there is also Morgantina and Aidone close by.
This establishment is a beauty. It's set in a fairly peaceful location (however we could hear dogs barking late into the night from a local property) great parking facilities and a few acres of land to roam in. It's a safe place to stay at and is blessed with friendly staff. There is a decent pool to swim in too. Now I'm a fussy eater, so I was a little edgy about their €25 5 course set meal. When I checked in I was assured that a non meat eater would be accommodated so we agreed to eat there. However at meal time I asked to see what the set meal comprises. Unfortunately there was no menu to read. The lady manager told me what was on the menu - but as her English wasn't stellar, I struggled to understand what was on offer. Ultimately we ate there and I ended up eating a salad and some veggie pate, with bread and some tiramisu. This came with a jug of red wine. Although I wasn't happy with the meal- I put it down to experience- as the wine was delish. On the next table was a friendly gent who I gather was a Moslem as he refused his pork steaks and sent back his wine. The waiting staff seemed a little surprised. Lesson to be learnt. Don't assume everyone eats meat and drinks alcohol and try to print out the food for the day. This would certainly halt many potential problems. We stayed for 3 nights but only ate at Trigona once due to our first night disappointment. We ate in the town. It's too far to walk to so we had to go by car. With so many pluses and the meal issue a part of history, I was shocked to be asked on day 2 that they would like us to move out of our room as there was a double booking. I was stunned. After a pause I said no way, as we had done nothing wrong and we had booked 3 nights months ago. Thankfully there was no argument from the super likeable Afghan gent. So, all in all a great venue- but with a few tweaks this would certainly be a 5/5 rather than a 4. Foot note: On our check out we asked for a discount, due to the fact that we didn't eat all of the set menu on our first night- so we were fairly charged €30 rather than 50. Now that was good management.
An old country house with a feeling of the past converted into a small residence, set in a big park. A perfect place to enjoy peace and relax. The evening meal is a pleasure to discover and not to be missed. A friendly welcoming staff. A place to recommend, our experience corresponds to the description on their site
One of kind, in all the best ways. A well cared for family home, kind and considerate staff, amazing breakfast (and dinner upon request). Very quiet setting, country elegance in furnishings, comfortable accommodations, a beautiful pool and garden, with a few local feline ambassadors who were well mannered. My only complaint is we didn't stay longer, and are hoping to return to the area and recommend very highly for a truly exceptional experience.
We stayed at Villa Trigona overnight, and visited the Villa Romana del Casale which is close by. Pluses: The property is beautiful. There are gardens for walking around, nice views. There is secure parking. The dinner was excellent, and the ambience at dinner was friendly and relaxed. The staff were friendly and helpful. Not so great: The room was somwhat bare. The rooms are up a long flight of stairs.
In a nutshell, excellent! We arrived after a long day's travelling. The (Gambian) receptionist and waiter made us feel very welcome, quickly briefed us and took us to our room. It was simply furnished and the bathroom fittings were a little dated. But everything worked and was spotlessly clean. Dinner was quite special and very good value. The menu was fixed but staff willingly found a vegetarian option for me. There was a very good feel in the dining room. There was clearly a real professional in the kitchen. Breakfast was first rate: with lots of local produce -and the pleasure of sitting outside under trees. The swimming pool looked very inviting: we wished we could have stayed at the Villa Trigona for longer!
We spent two nights here as the villa is very convenient for trips to Villa Romana del Casale, Caltagirone, and Morgantina. However it must be glorious in the Summer as there is space for meals outside and a lovely pool. The building is steeped in history and feels like someone's home, full of family treasures. Our room was comfortable and tasteful. The food, both breakfast and dinner is exceptionally good. No reliance on expensive ingredients, rather good quality cooking of simple and fresh ingredients. The four course set dinner comes with local wine and when we were there, the opportunity arose to converse with other people from different European countries. The dining area is quite small so chatting to other people happened quite naturally. The staff are lovely, casual and helpful. I would recommend this place wholeheartedly to any of my friends. It is great value and I would love to stay there again!
A very comfortable house with extremely good beds! Staff are very friendly. Nice location on the outskirts of piazza armenia and handy for visiting the Roman villa. Dinner there is a must. Nice pool where you can relax. Slight criticism about the building work going on and the noise.
Finally got to Piazza America nestled deep in the mountains - beautiful drive. Hotel is on the outskirts of town so not walkable to any of attractions in town. Lovely old stone building with beautiful photos and displays on walls. Due to previous trip advisor review we ordered the dinner here last night. What a feast! We had several appetizers, then cheese, then a vegetarian pasta as 2nd course plus a pork tenderloin main course with vegetables and salad. This was followed by either tiramisu or a crème Carmel like dessert with caramel sauce. The meal was complemented by a carafe of red wine for the appetizers and first 2 courses, then a bottle was brought for the main meal - lovely wine that complemented the meal perfectly. A shot of limoncello finished off the meal. Amazing, would highly recommend. All for €25/person. Excellent! Hotel has pool table inside, ping pong and pool outside as well as several lovely paths to stroll. GO
We stumbled on Trigona after looking at various over accommodations in the centre of Armerina..... it was such a happy surprise. Not a single thing we could fault. Excellent value, great staff, food superb, bedroom with French windows overlooking landscaped gardens.....we have stayed in other picturesque places.... what was special here was the value the staff gave to their profession ..... nothing was too much trouble....and pastries straight from the oven for breakfast !
