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.

The space

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).

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

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.

Other things to note

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.

What a fantastic place. Really well placed for hetting to all the tourist towns in the south east. Would also recommend the train to Siracusa - easier than driving. You can park for free at the station, less than 2 miles away. The house is lovely, spotlessly clean, and Miriam and Giovanni are the most delightful hosts. More like staying with friends. PS Try their own wine and other produce too.

Miriam and her husband made us feel very welcome. She offered us coffee and gave us little homemade biscuits. She was very friendly with us throughout our stay.

Miriam & Giovanni's country house is lovely. If you are after a relaxing and authentic Sicilian holiday, then do stay here. Miriam & Giovanni are so hospitable and warm and couldn't do enough for us. They are such lovely people. The outdoor terrace and garden were perfect for us, with our 18 month old son. The dogs, cats, chickens and geese added to the great experience. Miriam made us dinner on two occasions, and breakfast too. We would thoroughly recommend her cooking! Such generous servings and so delicious, everything fresh from their garden. The house is so clean and contains everything you could need. It also felt very private, with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, dining room, sitting room and outdoor terrace all to ourselves. The house is a good base to explore the surrounding areas (you definitely need a car). Syracuse is beautiful, also Noto, Modica, Ragusa, and there are lots of beaches to chose from including Cala Mosche and Lido Di Noto. We were very sad to leave and will miss our hosts! Grazia Miriam & Giovanni!

What a gem this place is! After the hustle and bustle of Palermo, we couldn't have picked a better place for the rest of our travels in Sicily. The house is located in the countryside, far from the noise and pollution of the cities, in the middle of nature. You are surrounded by an olive grove and the view towards the valley is as far as the eye can see. The house consists of two fairly separate units, one in which the hosts live, the other for the guests. You basically have a large apartment on the first floor, consisting of two bedrooms and a bathroom, while the kitchen and dining area are on the ground floor. There is also an outside terrace reserved just for the guests. On the property, there are hens, geese, a bunch of adorable kittens and two dogs. Kids will especially love playing with them. Your hosts, Miriam and Giovanni, are the nicest people you've met. They will do everything to make your stay great. I highly recommend letting Miriam prepare your breakfast. You will feel so pampered! They also suggested a restaurant nearby (A Cava) located in a stunning natural setting and of such high quality that we ended up eating there every night. We can't wait to come back for another visit!

La Cassava House, has an ideal strategic location for establishing a home-base headquarters for your daily excursions. For this reason, a long term stay would be highly recommended, to visit the many places of interest in the nearby surrounding area. This countryside house in a quiet remote setting will offer you a place of refuge from the everyday demands of travelling. It is an excellent living arrangement with a pristine spacious living quarters. Everything is of high quality and you’re getting more than your money’s worth. The kitchen is most enjoyable for cooking and the large private veranda is an extra bonus. From the second floor bedroom, there is a beautiful view of the vast open-space landscape and the distant sea coastline. Immediately upon arrival, you will be welcomed to a most enjoyable and restful visit. Your hosts, Miriam and Giovanni, will graciously welcome you into their traditional Sicilian home setting with their warm hospitality. Miriam will surely always surprise you with a small food tasting of some sort. She is an excellent person for immersing yourself with cultural exchange. On a regular basis, Mirian will discreetly check-in with you to see if she can be of some assistance. For all your travelling concerns, you will find Giovanni to be very clear and precise with his insightful recommendations. Also, he will faithfully follow up and inquire on your daily excursions. Upon departure, you will surely feel how the whole “retreat-like” experience has deeply touched you in some mysterious way.

We spend a short week in "La Casazza" and ist was really a great experience. The house is absolutly wonderful and Miriam and Giovanni were very friendly hosts. They made us feel very wellcome and made "La Casazza" to our home. Absolutly unbeatable is the breakfast Miriam is preparing. Varied, typical sicilian, fresh from her garden or fresh prepared in her kitchen. And even the dinner made us stay several evenings at the wonderful terrace to enjoy the multi-course Menu, even allways fresh and cooked with love. we warmly recommend house and host

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.
