The building is a characteristic, traditional sicilian country house: it’s made of stones and surrounded by dry-stone walls, carrob trees and embellished by two secolar olive trees.
Our house is in the south-east of Sicily, in the country side, in the surroundings of Rosolini, between Ragusa and Siracusa. Its location is strategic to visit world heritage cities and places of interest for architecture, art and nature. Rosolini can be reached with public transports (bus or train), however, because we live in the countryside, we recommend to have own transport.
Our house is located at:
•18km from Modica, famous for its baroque churches and its traditional chocolate;
•35 km from Ragusa and Scicli and their historic monuments, filmed in the popular fiction “Commissario Montalbano”.
•Few kilometres away from the stunning city of Noto, baroque capital of Sicily.
•40 minutes drive from Siracusa, Archimedes’ and Dionis city, famous for its Greek theatre and the characteristic neighbourhood of Ortigia.
•Few minutes drive from both the Ionic Sea (Marzamemi, Eloro, Vendicari reserve) and the Mediterranean coast with its golden sand beaches (Pozzallo and Marina d’Ispica).
The guests have access to all the exterior parts of the house (verandas and lounge area, barbecue area and garden).
Parking space and wi-fi connection are free. Fitness lovers can find a treadmill, spin bike, mountain bike and they can go jogging in the neighbourhood.
As we live in the same building, we offer our time and advice to guests to help facilitate them to explore the areas nearby and to get to know sicilian typical products. On request, we prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner using traditional products of our production: olive oil, wine, preserves, homemade sour dough bread and pasta. We are experienced in preparing meals for people with food intollerances or allergies.
The house is on two levels and we share it with our guests. There are: kitchen, living room, dining room, two bathroom, a reading room and two bedrooms. Bed linen and towels are included in the price. We also have a organic garden at diposition. We love animals and we have three cats, two dogs, hens and geese that live freely. The structure is entirely eco-sustainable. We care about saving energy and eco-sustainability.
Ho vissuto da sempre nel centro abitato del mio paese, allontanandomi solo per motivi di studio e di insegnamento. Ho iniziato ad apprezzare la campagna da quando ho conosciuto mio marito Giovanni, anche lui docente, che con passione conduce l’azienda agricola di famiglia producendo olio e vino. Da circa dieci anni ci siamo trasferiti dal centro storico della città in un casolare rurale tipico siciliano apprezzando pienamente tutto ciò che ci offre la natura. Parlo poco l’inglese ma il desiderio di comunicare compensa. Sono una sportiva, mi piace leggere e soprattutto cucinare utilizzando, quanto più possibile, i prodotti del mio orto . Mi piacciono gli animali, ho 2 cani, 5 gatti ed alcune tartarughe, ma non posso ospitarne altri per incompatibilità caratteriale con i miei. L’idea di ospitare è nata dal piacere di condividere il mio stile di vita con le persone che apprezzano le cose semplici e la bellezza della natura.
