The space

Tenuta Don Ruggero is an old farmhouse situated in the context of the Sicilian countryside at 800 meters above sea level, on the edge of the Park of Madonie. It enjoys very broad landscapes that leave eastward see in the distance the Etna volcano and to the north the proximity to the sea allows guests to reach in a half-hour drive of the beautiful coast of Cefalu. Its geographical location places it at an equal distance from all the most interesting island, facilitated by the proximity of the major motorway axis and from the airports of Palermo and Catania, a 1-hour drive. Nearby, just a 10 minute drive you can visit the ancient villages of Polizzi Generosa, Petralia Soprana and Petralia Sottana and only 1 hour's drive you can reach the beautiful Villa del Casale with its precious mosaics and castle sperlinga.

The sleeping area is on two floors. From common lounges, all with fireplaces, access to 11 bedrooms, all with private bath; looking out the windows or balconies with sweeping views over the courtyards, the reconstructed Italian garden or on the high mountains of the park.
The rooms can accommodate two to four people, a total of 28 beds. Two of these represent a small apartment, with two adjoining bedrooms, each with private bathroom.

The structure is particularly suitable to receive homogeneous groups of guests large and small thanks to the presence of a large dining room, a relaxation room and a kitchen richly equipped including a wood oven, will have the opportunity to live a pleasant resort.
In the courtyards, at dusk, the large tables can be enriched with all the farm products (oil, to vegetables, fruits, legumes), so as to enjoy the delicious fragrance of a good food.
A large infinity pool (16 x 8), on an endless panorama, complete the facilities dedicated to outdoor activities.

In the cold months the comfort is ensured by an ecological heating floor and numerous large wood-burning fireplaces in all common areas.
In the warm months, the fresh mountain air does not necessitate air conditioning.

Nearby you are a riding stable and a very fun adventure park, recommended for both children and adults.

A unique farm house in a particularly beautiful part of Sicily. Great for a few couples or a large family. The local towns are terrific for fresh produce and friendliness. We stayed in winter which I recommend as the roads and attractions of Sicily are empty of tourists and the weather quite pleasant. The central location makes the place ideal for day trips to any part of the island. I would recommend getting a chef in if you don't enjoy cooking as the farmhouse is a little secluded but the views are breathtaking. Bellissimo

The place is simply amazing. Very spacious, views like you've never seen before. The Villa is on a private road. Completely secluded. The owners are very helpful. There is plenty of parking and enough bathrooms and showers for an army. The photos don't do it justice. It is AMAZING

Simonetta replied to all our questions quickly before we came to the tenuta. We were really happy with the beautiful place. The pool is very nice, the view from the pool area just increadible, and alle the rooms are of good standard with private baths. All in all: A very nice place to stay 7 families - 14 adults and 15 kids. During the first days a group of dogs belonging to the owners were a bit "too" keen on hanging out with the kids, and also barking in the night, but just a quick word to Simonetta, and they were taken away from the place. We also had a local lady (organized through Simonetta) cook for us three nights, and a chef from Sciabake b&B in Polizzi Generosa cook for us the three other nights, both did a great job, and we got to try all kinds of local food. There are many pretty villages in the area to explore, or just have lazy days at the Tenuta with friends. Recommended!

Amabilidad, simpatía y proximidad desde el primer día. El entorno, cercano a un parque natural bellísimo, completamente recomendable. Excelente elección para disfrutar de unos días en Sicilia. Temperatura nocturna ideal en verano para los no amantes del calor extremo, y pueblos muy amigables cercanos (Polizzi Generossa, Castellana-Sicula). Absolutamente recomendable el restaurante U Bagghiu. Calurosa acogida a un grupo numeroso y excelente relación calidad-precio.
