This is the place you dream of discovering when coming to Sicily, a place for tradition lovers and connoisseurs where you can taste the simple and charming life of an enchanted past. Casale Molinum is an authentically restored miller's house, drenched in history and nestled in four hectares of unspoiled nature. A still working mill, an always-fresh creek at 20 meters from the house and a private pool complete the idyllic picture.
A curvy country road bordered with low white walls leads to Casale Molinum that consists of a white main building of 150 m2 and a pink dépendance of 40 m2. The entrance for both units is a green patio overlooking a forest and the creek where you might even spot one of the owner’s horses running freely.
The main building has four eclectically elegant double bedrooms and two luxury bathrooms, one for each floor. A spacious dining room with a well-equipped kitchen (including a dishwasher) will be the perfect frame for all your dinners unless, of course, you cannot get enough of the stunning views of the surroundings and you prefer to enjoy your meal outdoor. The dépendance consists of a double bedroom and a bathroom and it can be a romantic hideout for a couple that wants even more privacy. There is a brand new bathroom and a changing room next to the pool.
A fireplace stove in the main building and a wood stove in the dépendance will make your stay in winter warm and cosy. The thick walls of both units will not allow you to sweat while inside, not even in August.
It would be really difficult to ask for more. And yet, here it is possible. You can, for example, go trekking in the bordering Hyblean Mountains, request a horse ride together with the owner, or a dinner cooked with local and organic products. Moreover, at very short drive or at 20 minutes on foot you can reach the town of Palazzolo Acreide, one of the most stunning Baroque towns of Sicily and Unesco Heritage since 2002, featuring gorgeous churches and an ancient Greek amphitheater. The local delicacies are salami and bread made in all different ways given the miller’s tradition of the area, but you will delighted by wine and artisanal beers too. And do not miss a visit to Corsino, the oldest patisserie in town! Finally, Syracuse, sandy beaches and on the other side Mount Etna are at only 40 km.
In short, Casale Molinum is where authentic features, modern comforts and superb and a strategic location, unite to create a dreamlike atmosphere and let you live a holiday of wonder.
