Holiday Rental House
The Space The house is extremely comfortable and equipped in the vast territory of Mazarin, an ancient feudal area of important archaeological sites. The house is situated in an ancient farmhouse built in 1898 and facing the internal courtyard where there is a fountain which flows fresh spring (and drinking) water. It's surrounded by a typical countryside setting of Sicily, characterized by plots of land planted with olive trees, almonds and prickly pear. The house is divided into two floors, is fully furnished, equipped with central heating powered by a practical fireplace. Upstairs there are two bedrooms: one with two single beds and a bunk bed and the other has a double bed. On the same floor there are two bathrooms with a bath and shower. On the ground floor there is a large living ...The Space The house is extremely comfortable and equipped in the vast territory of Mazarin, an ancient feudal area of important archaeological sites.

It's surrounded by a typical countryside setting of Sicily, characterized by plots of land planted with olive trees, almonds and prickly pear. The house is divided into two floors, is fully furnished, equipped with central heating powered by a practical fireplace. Upstairs there are two bedrooms: one with two single beds and a bunk bed and the other has a double bed. On the same floor there are two bathrooms with a bath and shower. On the ground floor there is a large living room furnished with simple and elegant elements and a kitchen with an adjoining dining room. An element of great emphasis is the outer space as the night shines a beautiful starry sky. Of particular importance and interest is the natural presence of Mount Cheese (' Monte ' Cheese) facing the farm which contributes to the vision of spectacular sunsets. The accommodation is ideal for relaxing and as a starting point for excursions and tours in Sicily. Also nearby are large areas of forest where you can go hiking or on horseback (there is an natural horsemanship in San Cono). Guest Access The nearby village of San Cono (5 km away) offers offers everything you expect from an original sicilian town: friendly people; nice restaurants; fresh fruits and vegetables in abundance. In the summer season there are also beach chairs and patio umbrella and a barbecue available. Interaction with Guests I love help guests to discover the best of our beautiful island. I am ever available to suggest a good restaurant or an excursion. The Neighborhood In the nearby San Cono, there is a center where you can book horseback riding. In about half an hour's drive you can reach:-the archeological site of Morgantina-Aidone with the museum in which there is the Venus de Milo and the famous Silver-Piazza Armerina with its historic Old Town and the famous Villa Romana del Casale with its splendid mosaics-Caltagirone with its ancient villas and the famous ceramics-The sea with the beach of Gela Macchitella. And about an hour away is Mount Etna: the ancient rail cars (1937) of the Circumetnea railway (' Circumetnea ' Railway) where you can make an unforgettable trip to see the ancient lava flows, the lunar landscapes or a walk and a lunch in the picturesque villages of the volcano. You can also easily reach Agrigento and his Virgin coast line (' Scala dei Turchi ' with its amazing white cliffs of salt, the Natural reserve of Torre Salsa and Siculiana Marina for example) and the ancient town Naro (km 70) and its Castle of Chiaramonte or on the east side the wonderful baroque town and UNESCO World Heritage Sites Ragusa Ibla, Modica (famous too for its tradition in working chocolate) and Scicli.More

How to get there
Coming from Palermo should take the motorway Palermo-Catania and exit at Caltanissetta, continue on Highway 626 and exit at Mazarin. From the village of Mazarin there are approximately 14 kilometres to reach the farm. From Catania you can take the highway Catania-Gela, Caltagirone and exit then follow the signs for San cono which is about 5 km from the farm. We usually meet in the Town Hall square of San Cono, but with a navigation system you can reach us directly by the House.
