A Magical Place

Reviewed 18 september, 2022

Baglio Occhipinti was a magical and very relaxing place - the building and setting are beautiful, all of the staff are so nice that you feel like you’re with family, the food is delicious and the wine list is amazing. I would also recommend doing a cooking class and visiting Arianna Occhipinti’s vineyard nearby, they were both major highlights of our Sicily trip. Thank you to everyone at Baglio Occhipinti for such a wonderful experience!

Idyllic countryside retreat

Reviewed 16 july, 2022

We enjoyed two wonderful days and nights at Baglio Occhipinti at the end of June. A beautiful setting with friendly staff, excellent food and lovely rooms. It is the ideal spot to relax and from which to visit a few surrounding vineyards- including of course, Occhipinti. Highly recommended.

Stellar experience

How happy we are to have chosen this wonderful small hotel. Peaceful countryside setting, beautiful grounds to wander in and relax. Fabulous design elements throughout the main house as well as the guest rooms. Breakfasts we are still dreaming about, and two onsite dinners that were fantastic. We particularly loved meeting the other guests from around the world during apertivo hour. And the wines from the family winery are so very good. But the absolute best thing about Baglio Occhipinti are the amazing staff. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with such warmth and friendliness- we felt in very good hands. And just the right amount of attention too, not hovering. Special huge shout out to Sara- who was delightful and just wonderful to meet.

Great potential, but set very high expectations that were not met

Reviewed 30 april, 2022

My partner and I were so excited to stay at Baglio Occhipinti but I’m sorry to say that our experience fell very short of what we were expecting. The scenery and setting is undoubtedly gorgeous, and I am fully supportive of the Baglio’s ethos and all it is trying to achieve with respect to relaxation, regenerative farming and respect for the Sicilian tradition. Our key complaints fall into two principal areas: 1) the level of service; and 2) the food offering. Firstly, and perhaps this is down to the beginning of the season and the aftermath of the pandemic, the staff are not adequately trained or experienced enough in delivering a luxury service for their guests. There is a distinct lack of polish in the meal services. Although I would very easily dismiss such flaws if this was packaged as a wholesome, rustic agroturismo-type experience - unfortunately the prices you are paying here demand a certain standard that was simply not met. With the exception of the sommelier (who was fantastic), communication skills were somewhat lacking. We were served a bottle of warm white wine one evening, and the next evening the staff member at breakfast had not registered our attendance for dinner despite our email confirmation some days before. Generally (and with the exception of the sommelier) there was very little camaraderie with the waiting staff, creating a slightly stuffy and uncomfortable atmosphere. Each morning (after a three night stay) the weather was warm and the sun was shining beautifully, yet we were told (in Italian) it was not possible for us to sit outside because they hadn’t had time to make up the tables. What is the point in staying in such a beautiful agricultural setting if we have to sit indoors when the sun in shining in the springtime? Another example: we spent one day by the pool, and having requested a drink from one of the serving staff, we received the drinks over one hour later, and after having reminded the staff member twice that we we were still waiting. She apologised profusely, but she was covering both the reception desk as well as the catering needs of two sets of guests that had recently arrived, and there was nobody else around to help her. You don’t have to be an expert in the hospitality sector to understand that the price of these drinks should have been deducted from our final bill. We would have been less bothered by this had there been a fridge in the rooms or some sort of self-service available, but there was nothing and we were very dependent on a member of staff being free. Our second issue related to the food on offer. In our opinion, the four course tasting menu for dinner was aspiring to a standard that it simply could not achieve. We were so enthusiastic to sample all the homegrown and other local produce, but rather than being presented passionately and with a generous helping of flavour, the food was very average: mostly bordering on bland and served in timid, tired-looking portions. What is, unfortunately, worse, is the lack of flexibility with the meal services. Breakfast was included in the price of the room, but was served as an overwhelming four course menu. For an establishment that is so focussed on sustainability and minimising waste, I am astonished that this volume of food is served to every guest as a default, and without asking them whether they would like some or all of: bread and jams, pastries, cake, fruit, eggs/meat. The kitchen would be much better off introducing some element of choice for such a small number of guests. We also ordered a cappuccino one morning which was milky and weak and quite frankly was worse quality than what they serve in terrible mainstream coffee chains such as Starbucks (which is a phrase that will rile any Italian I’m sure). Given that we were given four courses at breakfast and four courses at dinner, my partner and I simply couldn’t face a three course lunch at the Baglio. It was certainly overkill. We saw that there were some lighter options available, but only after 2.30pm. And in any event, they were so expensive. Given the family-oriented ethos at the Baglio, we would have expected some degree of flexibility or casualness at lunchtime at the very least, serving a simple hunk of bread and some cheese/meats and some salad. Instead, we drove to the nearest supermarket and felt forced to eat our make shift sandwiches in secret before returning to the poolside. It is such a shame. I hope the Baglio will take these comments onboard to better train their staff and to increase the flexibility of their food and drink service. This place has huge potential to emerge as the Sicilian version of the Pig Hotels in London, for example, but it is nowhere near that yet.

The place is beautiful. The staff is amazing, especially Sara! And we recommend booking a massage with Gianni and Luisa to complete the great experience! Also recommend visiting Ortigia and Noto if you have time!
