A wonderfull historic farm in the heart of Sicilia

  • 5 of 5

We have greatly enjoyed our stay in this special place.

The farm is in the middle of hills with olive fields, 15-minute drive from charming Mazzarino. After a large entrance gate, there is a long private driveway surrounded by trees and flowering oleander and lavender bushes. The farm itself is a huge building around a courtyard with a fountain and it is more than 300 years old.

Inside the thick walls, there are several apartments from 2 to 6 or 8 people. All the modern comforts are here in fine condition. But what makes it special, is the stylish way they are furnished en decorated. A loving eye for the history this place, has been at work here. And no wonder: host Guilio Randazzo grew up here and his family has owned the farm for centuries...

When we arrived, he had made sure, there was some fruit and drinks in the fridge and even a fresh loaf of bread. Then you feel welcomed!

Outside there are plenty of little places where you can sit in the shade and relax, play with the cats or just be amazed about the deep peace and tranquility of Sicily's heartland.

It felt we lived in movie or a book for a few days, a very good book.
