TravelPod Member ReviewsB&B Portatenea Agrigento
On arrival, in Agrigento, it seemed the staff at the local tourist information and at Port Atenea B&B could read our minds, with all the help in maps and suggestions we could need. The room was very comfortable and provided with all mod cons. The roof terrace was a great place to relax and breakfast, with a fine (distant) view of the temples. The position was also just 2 mins walk from the station and, despite being at the busy end of the lively main street, the double glazing blocked out any noise.

The Egadi islands, just west of Trapani, form part of a marine nature reserve where dolphins and turtles swim. We picked up a buoy and spent a magical night in the lee of Montagna Grossa on the island of Favignana. Beautiful.
We then set sail, south east, towards Sciacca, around 55 miles. The wind came up in the afternoon, reaching a force 7 and although that presented no problem sailing since it wasn't on the nose, mooring wasn't at ...
... a village of ceramic, where exactly this weekend there was a famous feast in which they cover the stair to the church with hunderds of flames. Unfortunately when we drove up we went through a thunderstorm and although by the time we arrived in the center, the rain was over, the damage was done to the ornaments on the stairs.
We could still see how it looked with the RED, WHITE and GREEN lampions that they put on the ...
... B we had booked just outside of Agrigento. As usual without GPS it is a bit of a struggle to find the place. But finally we succeeded and found a nice house with friendly people who spoke only italian and had a few sentences in English that their daughter had written down on a piece of paper, but they had an unbelievable pool next to the hous – real swimming pool. Quick dive into the water to cool down and then to the reastaurant.
This was the first reason ...
... had to start again.
Wine tasting room, 3 wines with distinctive snack accompaniments, then a video playing introducing you to each wine to, very impressive.
2001 Terre **** 19% with cheese, like a port, dry, smelt great
2003 Targa 19% with cracker & cream cheese, sweetish, smelt great
2013 Grecale, 15.5% with dessert biscuit, far too sweet
Ended up buying a bottle of Targa not sure if it will make it home yet
Drove 2hrs to ...
... a really good view.
It was really fun climbing all around.
When we got home we went to the swimming pool.
And it was super fun but we had to buy swimming caps.
I don't know why but it is the most dumbest idea ever I think.
But over all we had so much fun in the pool. I think we were in there for about 2 hours.
