|The estate is located
about 100 m above sea level, midway between Catania
and Siracusa, among the foothills of
the white Ibleo plain. It is only 8 km from the lovely sea at Brucoli,
and even closer to other seaside resorts.
The farm covers an area of more than 100 hectares with an incredible variation of landscapes: green citrus orchards alternate with olive groves and arid Sicilian pastures; the deep valley carved by the San Calogero river harbours numerous archaeological remains from the Castellucciana civilization (pre-Greek period) and lovely natural woods rich in Mediterranean scents.
In addition to the production of citrus fruits and olive oil, the breeding and raising of San Calogero riding horses is another important activity at the estate, and it has brought much satisfaction to the owners. One of the horses, Zigolo di San Calogero, participated in the Olympic Games in Atlanta.
Set among vegetation and citrus orchards, the apartments have been built in rural Sicilian style and are near the stables and riding ring. They are furnished with period pieces and offer comforts: bathroom, kitchen, television and heating.
The Villa is located in a beautiful garden full of
Mediterranean plants, and with private swimming pool.
