A homestay provides an opportunity for guests to stay in local, affordable accommodation and live with or amongst the occupants of the property for a fee. It’s a kind of “lodging” experience in a family home.
It's an affordable accommodation alternative, ideal for independent leisure travellers of all ages, interns, gap year students, students living abroad and anyone seeking a real and genuine travel accommodation experience. It allows people to experience the local community and culture of the place they’re visiting.
Homestay hosts help their guests find their feet in a new place, whether it’s help with local orientation, places to eat, sightseeing or just directions to the best local beaches. It’s also a convenient, value-for-money way to book accommodation.
One thing you can be sure of is a warm and friendly welcome from the moment you arrive, to the moment you leave, you will be looked after like family and every assistance will be given to make your homestay experience at Casa Piccolo Paradiso a memorable one!
Accommodation is provided on a bed and breakfast basis and homestay guests will receive a continental breakfast. Homestay guests are free to make tea, coffee, etc. as they wish in the kitchen. We just ask that guests maintain the high level of cleanliness and hygiene in the kitchen.
On request, we can include homestay guests in our evening meal arrangements at an additional cost. These arrangements are normally informal and organised on an ad-hoc basis once guests know what is on the menu for each particular evening. There is also a private family home Sicilian Dining Experience available in the adjacent village San Leonardo which is bookable upon request subject to availability and numbers.
All bed linen and towels are provided and all homestay bedrooms have ventilators and bottled water provided upon arrival.
When you stay at Casa Piccolo Paradiso, you will be embraced into Laurence and Sam’s home and the aim is to make you feel like visiting family rather than just guests.
