Professionally designed old house with contemporary set up. Romantic, close to church and sights. Our host, Antonio was very accomodating and is fluent in English and French. A real gem not to be missed!

I stayed one night in the beautiful Porta della Terra B&B and wish I could have stayed longer! The property itself has been recently renovated and has a real old world charm to it. My room was large, bright with beautiful high ceilings. The owner, Antonio, was the perfect host. He recommended some amazing places for dinner and drinks in...

My wife and I spent three nights at B&B Porta della Terrra in October 2015. It was perfect! The staff, the room, the breakfast, and the location surpassed our expectations. We arrived from Philadelphia on a Friday to visit Militello, where my wife's mother was born in 1912. Unfortunately, our luggage did not arrive with us at the Catania airport....

Finding this place in Militello was a great surprise. It's an historic building tastefully remodelled and decorated. Great ambiance, clean, fresh, excellent breakfast and great hosts. The crowning of the visit to this Unesco Patrimony site.

B&B Porta della Terra is a fabulous place to stay. The room we stayed in was large, well appointed, clean and beautifully decorated with wonderful original frescoes on the ceiling. Our host Antonio was charming and made sure we saw all of the special sights in Militello (of which there are many) including a church under restoration that has not...

This is a fabulous bed and breakfast! Antonio, the owner, makes you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive. Our room was large, quiet, meticulously clean, well equipped and there wasn't a detail missed by our host. Sleeping in a historic building under a beautifully painted ceiling and eating breakfast in a cellar under arched ceilings was a highlight for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The B&B - classified "3 stars" - is situated on largo Gelso that is a little square on the most beautiful street of the historical center of Militello, the Porta della Terra road. Between the Sanctuary of the "Madonna della Stella" and the Barresi castle, inside the baroc center and on the board of the medieval one it is a rare example of late “perfectly conserved sicialian Liberty style”.Militello is one of the city of the Val di Noto that UNESCO recognized like a good of Humanity. It is proved by its late-baroc monuments.From the terrace of the bed and breakfast you can appreciate this architectonic spectacle, between bell towers and churches you can see the Etna vulcan and don’t skip the views of the hills.All rooms have bathroom, heater for winter and climatisation or air fan for summer, tv, wi-fi and frigobar.Behind an ancient and broken wallpaper we have found the original decoration of the dining-room where today the guests have breakfast and they can taste, among other things, also the local products. ... more   less
