- To always have fresh and genuine eggs to us and our guests, we breed to the ground seven hens. The hens live in their house with a veranda.
Their small house is heated and refreshed by nature and meets the needs of the animals and its biological rhythms: north-south porch; nest on east; container for feces, ventilated roof, south wall transparent and reclining in opposite directions for ventilation summer or winter; pesticide bath of sand and wood ash on the veranda; automatic system for the administration of water always fresh and clean.

Perfect week in a lemon grove.
We spent a week in this lovely casa in early May. One of our favorite international rental properties! We were able to harvest oranges every day for fresh juice (electric juicer made it an easy task). Donkey served as a great addition and consumed of all of our kitchen scraps. Chickens provided fresh eggs daily. Our host was amazing and shared his honey and wine. Book it!
Many thanks. You will be always welcome!
Lovely peaceful location where the kids were very happy, well equipped
Lovely accommodation surrounded by lemon trees. The kids really enjoyed the playground and small pool and collecting eggs from the chickens and visiting the donkey. We enjoyed lazing in the hammock and the comfortable sun loungers. The beach is walking distance away too.
The accommodation is well equipped but would benefit from a microwave and toaster. There is a small supermarket walking distance away for basics and restaurants too, although we preferred eating in Noto where there was more choice and better quality.
The owner met us on the first day and gave us a tour of his property and a run down of his place. He was friendly and helpful throughout our stay and even provided us links to tips with google waypoints prior to our arrival on what there was to do around us.
The home and property were amazing and exactly what we were looking for. Both our 12 and 2 year loved the place.
We plan to make this a spot we come to often for family retreats.
We tried his honey, wine, olive oil, and loved all three so much we brought a bunch home with us.
I would strongly recommend this rental to anyone looking to be close to the great beaches on the nature reserve to the great cities to visit in the area.
We were excited for our stay, but our stay surpassed what we expected!

"House was lovely and clean in a beautiful orange and lemon grove. It was very peaceful and private with no-one looking in yet only a short walk to the sea and a couple of bars and restaurants. We only had bicycles with us but managed fine. However if you had a car Noto and Avola are only a short and pleasant drive away."

"Gio met us as arranged and his house in the lemon grove exceeded all expectations. It is new, well designed, and well equipped. The lemon trees provided a cool shade around the house. When temperatures soared, it remained cool inside. The house has its own gate, is not overlooked by any other house and offers peace and privacy. Gio was most kind and attentive, and we learned much about the lemons and the farming year in SE Sicily.
The house is about five minutes away from the well stocked and friendly supermarket, and further few minutes brings you to the sandy beach.
There is satellite TV with the main international news channels, but it was the fine collection of books that gave the greatest pleasure.
This comfortable house is a lovely place to spend a holiday. We hope to return."
Fijn huis met mooie veranda in een grote boomgaard met ook tropische bomen
Een groot terrein met een fijn huis met goede keuken, fijne veranda met goede stoelen en een grote tafel. Heerlijk om in de avond en overdag buiten te zitten. In de tweede slaapkamer 2 losse bedden, vonden onze kinderen erg fijn. In de tuin kippen die scharrelen rond en de eitjes mag je zelf rapen.
Op minder dan 10minuten lopen naar een fijn zandstrand met langzaam diep wordende zee. Veel mooie dorpen en steden op rij afstand.

Noto – “Infiorata”
Every year third Sunday of May is dedicated to “l'infiorata” of the city of Noto, an event. This event Is one of the best events on the Island of Sicily.
It came in 1978 when Gezanese and Noto artists met and it is right at Genzano in the Province of Rome that this beautiful picturesque Technique is developed.
Corrado Nicolaci is the street in which l'infiorata is born, the impact is strong where the church of Montevergini is opposed to the Palace of Prince Nicolaci 'Villa dorata' With balconies which have been defined as the most beautiful in the world.
In the street a series of Palaces belonging to the nobility which create a surprising prospective: Modica palace, Giunta palace But it is the actual city of Noto that brings all these things together that creates an architectonic Stage.
On Friday the artists are ready to recreate on the ground their designs with flowers which Beforehand are created with pastels and brushes and so the long hard work begins and ends at dawn.
On Saturday when the artists retire to a worthy rest and the crowd of visitors will admire their Masterpieces till Monday afternoon when it will be destroyed by a parade of children that run on The flowered carpet.
