B & B Casacavarra -Portopalo

July 13, 2016

On the southernmost tip of Sicily, just a few miles from Isola delle Correnti, where the Ionian and Mediterranean Seas meet, stands a bed and breakfast which offers its guests a magical break from the hustle and bustle of modern life.  Casacavarra lies in the countryside and as a backdrop offers the peaceful view of the sea. The owner, Mario, and his assistant, Sandra, go out of their way to offer true Southern hospitality.  Guests can choose to dine at the B & B in the evening on some days and that is  when Mario puts his culinary talents to work.

SP 8 Pachino-Maucini where B&B is located – this is located after Portopalo

One sign that Casacavarra offers its guests a wonderful experience is validated by the fact that many of the guests I met there have been coming back for years!!!!!
