Overview

About the property

House with large veranda overlooking the hills, near the sea and the art cities

Our country house is located in a strategic position to visit the places of major cultural and scenic interest of Sicily. The historical, natural and cultural grandeur of Sicily is evidenced by the recognition of as many as 7 sites recognized as World Heritage by UNESCO.

5 of these sites are easily reachable from our house as "The Archaeological Park of Agrigento" with the Valley of the Temples (74 km), the "Roman Villa of the Casale" of Piazza Armerina (30 km), "The entire Baroque area of the south east "which includes Catania (138 km) Modica (100 km), Ragusa (92 km) Caltagirone (52 km)," The Etna "(170 km) with its landscape features," The Arab-Norman route that starts from Cefalù (130 km) ".

In addition, the house is located near the sea, surrounded by unspoiled nature, surrounded by olive trees, vines and palms and the gentle slopes of the hills cultivated with wheat.

To these beauties there is an always mild and sunny climate where the air, the colors and the perfumes are typical Sicilian ones.

The house can accommodate up to 7 people and consists of a room that houses a living room with a sofa bed and LED TV and a kitchen with table and chairs equipped with traditional oven and all the necessary utensils. There are also two spacious bedrooms, a bathroom with shower and a large veranda with barbecue where you can eat, sunbathe, read or spend your free time in a peaceful place surrounded by the noise of nature and the scents of the earth and where at nightfall you will be fascinated by the red sunsets and in the darkness by the myriad of shining stars.

Also plenty of space for parking, free WI-FI and bed and bath linens.

Some of the most famous seaside resorts are easily reachable, such as the spectacular Scala dei Turchi with its white marl cliffs, Capo Rossello and Monterosso, particular promontories of red limestone ending in the sea or the town of Torre Salsa a Regional Nature Reserve managed by the WWF where the Caretta Caretta turtles from May to August come to lay their eggs every year.

Guests will also receive detailed information on their arrival to discover the surrounding area, a territory that can give strong emotions through the charm of the discovery of a still unspoiled and wild landscape. There are seven Protected Natural Reserves in the Nisseno territory. There are also the remains of civilizations such as the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Arabs and the Normans such as the Greek fortifications called "Mura Timoleontee" of Gela or the charming town of Sutera inserted in the circuit of the "Most Beautiful Villages of Italy". There are also traces of a more recent past such as the abandoned Mines of Zolfo, as testified for example by the Museum of Sulphites of "Trabia Tallarita", an example of industrial archeology of the early twentieth century.

Our brochures will take you through museums, archaeological remains, castles, villages, natural reserves and shores of crystal clear sea and golden sand.

You will also find information on the most popular festivals linked to religious and folklore traditions.

During the Easter period in Sicily holidays are experienced by the inhabitants with intense vitality and the Christian and pagan rituals merge in a mixture of sensations, colors, flavors and sounds that give unique emotions. During the Holy Week several processions are held and all the moments of the Passion of Christ are recalled on Good Friday.

During the summer there are typical devotional parties such as that of the SS. Crucifixion of Olmo to Mazzarino (the 2nd Sunday of May), the feast of S. Calogero and Pope of Campofranco, where from the statue of the saint are given great forms of bread with human forms, cited also by the magazine "Bell'Italia", the feast of San Giuseppe in Riesi (last Sunday of July and March) or The Costume Historical Court in Mussomeli. Christmas is made of the impressive Live Nativity Scenes in Sutera and Butera.

There will also be indications of local products, culinary traditions and food and wine routes. You will learn typical sweets such as nougat, ricotta cheese rolls, cannoli, buccellati, mostaccioli all prepared with local products such as honey, dried figs, almonds, cottage cheese, baked wine, oil and citrus peel. And even the lumpy buns like the "muffles" particular type of sponge bread filled with ricotta or caciocavallo, oil, pepper, anchovies or as "the mbriulata" made with rolled pasta rolled with olives, potatoes, cheese and minced meat. You will know typical products like honey Serradifalco recognized Slow Food or Riesi and Butera wines exported all over the world and classified D.O.C ..

Although the house is in a quiet location it is still convenient to all services as the village of Riesi is reachable in 5 minutes and in 10 minutes you can reach the medieval village of Mazzarino characterized by the numerous baroque churches and the remains of the castle Dominates the landscape.

Guests will be welcomed by the courtesy and warmth of the owners that characterizes the spirit of the Sicilians who will be ready to meet your every need.

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

The most splendid home and gracious hosts. They gave us water and supplied all the basic necessities to cook. We loved our time that we had there and highly recommend for two or a family. There is an extra room with a double bed and bunk beds, a huge covered porch.. highly recommended.

Very helpful host, 2km to nearest town where you can buy provisions and fresh fruit and vegetables. Very well equipped kitchen.

We spent four days over the Easter break, there were many festivals in the local area.

It was a great base to explore the area. We had a great time. The bottle of wine was very good.

Well located to suit our needs

  • 5 of 5

An hour from The Valley of The Temples. Forty minutes from Villa Romana de Casale at Piazza Armerina.

Provisions available in Reisi, a 5 minute drive away.

Accommodation was excellent, all that we needed to ensure that we had an excellent stay.

Superb views to the mountains.

Looked after by the parents of the owners. A bowl of home grown grapes, some home grown figs and bottles of water were in the fridge when we arrived.

Excellant

  • 5 of 5

Giussepe et Tina nous ont accueillis avec une immense gentillesse, tout au long de notre séjour, ils étaient à nos petits soins, lorsque nous avions besoin de quelque chose, ils répondaient à notre demande. De plus la propreté de la maison était irréprochable, la décoration très romantique, le cadre et le point de vue magnifique.

Notre séjour a été mémorable.

Encore merci à GIUSSEPE, TINA et SALVATORE pour leur dévouement.

Piccolo paradiso terrestre!

  • 5 of 5

Sono stata in vacanza in Sicilia durante la prima settimana di Settembre con altri 3 miei amici, ed abbiamo soggiornato in questa bellissima villetta di campagna. Il punto in cui si trova è praticamente molto funzionale per raggiungere i posti più belli della Sicilia. La casa è dotata di tutti i comfort per garantire un sereno e tranquillo soggiorno, l’ambiente è particolarmente curato e soprattutto pulito. E’ circondata da profumati frutteti e da un incantevole vegetazione che dipinge dei panorami unici. Indimenticabili i tramonti e incantevole il cielo stellato che si possono ammirare seduti comodamente nella veranda all’aperto. I proprietari sono molto gentili e disponibili, e in particolare ci hanno dato tanti buoni consigli sulle tipicità enogastronomiche.

Abbiamo trascorso una vacanza bellissima. Location consigliatissima!!!
