Lovely setting with a beautiful pool. Breakfast was a bit disappointing but the room layout and space in and out were outstanding.
Need to change their website directions as sends you to wrong gate.
Excellent for families where the self catering facilities are excellent- allows you to go out exploring during the day and have a typical Sicilian lunch while then enjoying a nice meal at home.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The former feudal estate of San Calogero is in the centre of the white stone valley excavated through the centuries by the San Calogero River. The lush fields, rich in natural springs, were at one time the only place fertile enough to nurture and cultivate citrus trees. The estate remained a hunting reserve until the seventies and still houses one of the oldest stud farms in Sicily. Exactly half way between Catania and Siracusa, it is located 100 meters above sea level, along the white hillsides of the Ibleo plateau and only 8 km from the splendid sea of Brucoli.The farming estate is located on 100 hectares and has an infinite variety of panoramas.A woodland of Mediterranean essences, fields rich in natural springs, plateaus abounding in olive trees, citrus groves and verdant pastures. But above all, a place to communicate with nature: discover nature trails, enjoy archeological walks to discover the grottoes and tombs of the X and XI century B.C.; taste the extra virgin olive oil, citrus fruits jams and orange blossom honey that are still the principal products of the farm.In the centre of an area rich in prestigious natural sites (Etna, Oasi di Vendicari...), archeological (Siracusa, Pantalica...) and architectural wonders (Ragusa Ibla, Noto, Modica...), the Tenuta San Calogero enjoys a strategic position that allows you to visit almost all of eastern Sicily in one day.
