Casa Piccolo Paradiso

Come & Stay with us

Sam and Laurence completed the tasteful renovation of this beautiful property in the quintessential Sicilian hamlet of Santo Stefano overlooking the coastal town of Gioiosa Marea, Sicily in June 2017. Since then it has been their home which, during the spring and summer months, they have opened up to guests on a homestay basis.

New for 2019, the house will be available for the complete rental formula from 13th April – 4th May and from 15th June – 26th October 2019 and for the immersive homestay formula from 4th May – 15th June2019.

Sam and Laurence’s underlying philosophy is to promote and encourage inclusiveness for guests at Casa Piccolo Paradiso as well as afford opportunities to participate in local immersive experiences which bring guests closer to the real Sicily.

Immersive Activities

Many people travel far and wide to enrich their knowledge of the destination they are travelling to. We have recently introduced some “immersive” activities locally which enable guests to dip into the way of life locally in and around Gioiosa Marea and these have proved very popular.
These activities not only provide some valuable small revenue for the local people but also give guests a unique opportunity to get close to the lifestyle of Sicilians who are amongst the most hospitable of folk.

Shuttle or Railway

If you don’t drive, then Palermo is the best airport to arrive at where there is a regular shuttle to the city railway station and here you can catch a train to Gioiosa Marea (the nearest town) and from there we can collect you. Guests arriving this way would need to appreciate that their local movements will be subject to the hosts availability and day-to-day activity.
