This historic property sits on flat agricultural land and used to be the centre of a huge farming estate dating from the late 1700s, much of which is still in ruins. The garden backs onto a country road and there’s only one other house nearby.
The house sleeps six but there’s plenty of entertaining space. The large kitchen is well-set up for cooking and eating together, and there’s further seating at the back of the house, along with an outdoor oven. Choose from two sitting rooms – downstairs with a lovely tiled fireplace or the vast one upstairs with countryside views.
The house is half-way between Marzamemi (7km) and Rosolini (8km), which both offer plenty of choice for restaurants – Taverna la Cialoma in Marzamemi has amazing sea views. Spend days out wine-tasting in nearby estates or head to the beach; return for a dip in the swimming pool, set in the quietest part of the property.
