The space
Total privacy and peace are provided among our 30 secular trees in our large, colorful garden where you will be able to walk, read or bring your laptop and work with a stunning view.
The enclosed wide large garden is provided with rustic tables, confortable chairs, barbecue, stone benches and many instruments, where you can experience several activities like yoga, pilates (with a professional teacher upon request), cooking classes and so on, far from the city crowds, breathing fresh clean air.
You only need to choose your favorite corner of the garden!
WIFI connection enables a safe connection and, If you have children with you, they can frolic happily and safely around the large garden while you use your laptop!

We are an "Airbnb-full-employment-family" passionately transitioning towards a more eco-friendly form of hosting.
We had improved our (already) meticulous cleaning protocol by adding the use of specific equipment and products compliance to Airbnb policy and our region Standard.

To turn your journey into an immersion in nature, you can benefit from an ORGANIC kitchen garden and herbs pots full of local products in much of the year (gathering, cooking and eating), which, together with our transition to a plastic – free Airbnb, makes our activity a form of more sustainable tourism.
INTERNALLY, the cottage has 2 floors: on the ground floor you will find an open space, cozy, country style kitchen–living room and a picturesque stone chimney, ideal to enjoy a good glass of wine, smart working and roasting chestnuts while feeling out of time!
The two bedrooms and the house bathroom are on the second floor, where you will also find a balcony in front of the wide garden and of a 100 YEARS/OLD STONE HOUSE, where our traditional SICILIAN COOKING CLASSES take place in a timeless atmosphere.
The second bathroom is separate from the main house, it is located in a smaller, secondary house, adjacent to the main one: a rustic version for countryside lovers.
Heating is provided thanks to a stone woodfire and several heater!

Guest access
The house includes a IN - SITE FREE PARKING.
Dogs and pets are absolutely welcome, but we kindly ask our guests to bring them only if they have a cot or a bedding of their own

Other things to note
Our cottage is located about 5 km away (5-6 min by car) from the city-centre of Nicosia, a full-of-history town (once known as ‘’the city of churches’’), protected in the relaxing harmony of the Sicilian mountains, but at the same time its location is the perfect spot to visit Central Sicily as a detoxifying "stop on the way" to visit the beautiful Sicilian coast destinations (however 30-40 min far).
The perfect combination to discover the soul of Central Sicily, with a perfect location if you plan to visit the opposite coast sides of the island! Among the off-the-beaten-track must-see spots in our region, from the house you can enjoy the cultural sites and food must-visits of Nicosia, but also quickly reach several old villages. Infact, staying here, you will also have the possibility to visit two old VILLAGES-FORTRESSES, which have been awarded the title of ''Borgo più bello d' Italia'' (Most beautiful village in Italy): Gangi (titled in 2014), at only 20 min drive and Petralia Soprana (titled in 2018), but also Sperlinga and its wonderful castle (12min), Mistretta, Castelbuono, as well as visiting KM 0 farms, producing élite food products.
Places that you won’t find immediately on travel sites, but which are the real core of our traditions.
The place is very close to restaurants, natural parks, trekking paths, so it is a solution for nature – lovers, willing to discover the Sicilian woods, its unique mediterrean mountain ecosystems.
The two closest protected areas are the ‘’Riserva naturale orientata Campanito – Sambughetti’’ (10 minutes or less by car) and the ‘’Riserva naturale orientata Monte Altesina’’ (20 min by car). Both worth a visit!
Moreover, in whichever direction you will decide to move by car, you will find little villages and towns, each one with its own dialect, culinary specialties (unknown by many travellers) and unique ancient architecture, which will bring you back in time.
To fully experience our Central Sicily region, we strongly suggest to rent a car into the airport to enjoy the fantastic views that will surround you during your stay but otherwise SHUTTLE SERVICES (upon request) from-to the city centre and from-to the main stations, ports and airports upon request!
