Viscari is a small and enchanting village carved out of ancient caves that were used in ancient times for the seasonal migration of livestock.
The dwelling place (home/villa), immersed in the nature with a breathtaking view, an ideal place to relax.

The space
The building is an old mountain house above Scopello, completely restored recently. It's surrounded by nature. The place is very quiet and calm. It's around 5 km away from the nearest town. The house can host 8/9 people and is heated with two wood stoves. It is composed of two different corps. The day space with kitchen, sofà, table, wood oven, fireplace and wood stove and a bath with wasching machine. In the kitchen there's also a single bed. Then you pass trought a little terrazza where is possible to have meal and go in the night space. A big room with a double bunk bed (4people to sleep) with the possibility of adding a cot and the bath with the shower. On the second floor you find another room with a mezzanine where we have the possibility to host three/four person. Also in this room we can add a cot . At the end you find two beautiful terrazzas in a rock garden with a wonderfull view of the sea where you can have sun. The water is not drinkable (as is usually the case in Sicily). Internet wifi has a bad signal.

Where you’ll be

Scopello, Sicilia, Italy

The place is quiet and calm, so the neighborhood. We love to respect other people.
Heading towards Balata di Baida, you will find the best traditional, home-style food including delicious wood fire pizza at Camillo's and cheese, ricotta and fresh dairy products at Pietrino's. At Castellammare (not to be missed!) you'll find restaurants with the typical tastes of Sicily and Quetzal, authentic food that is environmentally sustainable to come back to your calm and tranquillity in the evening. Perfect to rea a book or simply look at the landscape.

Ciao sono Elena, sono una psicologa e doll maker. Amo conoscere posti nuovi e nuovi amici e così ho cominciato ad ospitare gente da tutto il mondo già quando andavo all'università. Avevo una grande casa e gli amici che la condividevano con me un giorno andarono via così invece di trovare una nuova casa decisi di trovare nuovi amici. Piano piano questo è diventato il mio lavoro principale. Mi occupo delle case di amici che le vivono poco e preferiscono condividerle invece che tenerle chiuse quando non possono andare. Quest'anno insieme ad alcuni amici abbiamo costituito inoltre una cooperativa, SpazioLibero Community, per aiutare lo Stato nella gestione dei beni sequestrati. Così le case da condividere sono aumentate e speriamo di creare possibilità di lavoro per alcuni giovani in una terra difficile come la Sicilia. La risposta dalla rete sembra davvero positiva e questo ci rende molto orgogliosi. Vi chiedo di leggere con attenzione le descrizioni dettagliate degli alloggi che proponiamo e di lasciare sempre delle recensioni che ci aiutino a migliorare e ad allargare la "Famiglia", è un bel modo di dire grazie per l'ospitalità ricevuta. Vi aspettiamo, Elena SpazioLibero Community. Hi, my name is Elena. I trained as a psychologist and I hand-make dolls as a passion. During university I was sharing a large house and when my flat-mates decided to leave, instead of finding a new home, I decided to find new friends, welcoming guests from all over the world! Given my love of meeting new people, over time accommodation management has become my main occupation. I look after a number of second homes for friends who prefer not to leave them empty when they are away. Furthermore, this year a group of friends and I have set up a cooperative, SpazioLibero Community, to help local authorities manage confiscated properties. Now we have more houses for visitors to come and stay in and so hope to also create some work opportunities for young people in this beautiful but difficult land that is Sicily. The online response we’ve received has been really positive, which is very rewarding! Please carefully read the detailed descriptions of the various lodgings on offer and try to always leave reviews that may help us improve and enlarge our “family”, it's a good way to say thanks for the hospitality. Looking forward to welcoming you, Elena and the SpazioLibero Community.
