  • Un lugar muy recomendable, con gente amable y un buen sitio para explorar Sicilia.

  • was a very nice camping site in the middle of the mountains with very friendly people.

  • Great place, great situation, great people. We loved it!

  • We loved this wild and quiet place and their kind inhabitants :) The panorama is very nice, thought looking like 'our cloudy Pyrenees' :) Your deep knowledege of the country and peaceful philosophy were particularly appreciated. Many thanx to you Federico and Elisa (and bambina !)

  • Nous avons été merveilleusement accueillies dans ce très beau coin de verdure (humide à cette saison donc prévoir du bien chaud pour dormir ;-)...mais le chant des rossignols pendant la nuit nous a fait oublier ce désagrément !) . Si vous recherchez le calme, la paix, la sérénité, les belles rencontres ... et les belles randonnées (merci à Laura pour ses conseils !), Porto Di Terra est idéal. Tout est fait pour que l'on se sente bien accueilli et à l'aise.
    Un lieu unique, atypique et chargé de belles énergies.
    Grazie mille a tutti !
