Castle | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 14
Castle of the XIV century overlooking the sea ! What else ? All the charming bedrooms, overhanging the sea, have a private bathroom with shower and four of them have got stunning terraces. The big and panoramic dining room too, is overhanging the sea ! . The staying occupies the western wing of the castle, where once were the rooms of this splendid medieval building. In this castle there was a well-known hawks breeding so very common at that time here in Sicily. Many princesses have inhabited it and still now belongs to an aristocratic sicilian family: the Bordonaro. The property, immersed in a fantastic tropical park has got a pool (100 mt of perimeter !) and a private beach. The huge property, of course, has some people who daily work inside it. They will take care of you, too. The kind owners, sometimes, use to rest at the castle, in the other wings of the building. Would be interesting know them ... Enjoy a luxurious sicilian experience !
p.s. The pool might be occupied, by other owner's guests. But it is so wide and stunning that it's enjoyable by everyone!
The price includes: weekly cleaning;daily rearrangement of bathrooms and bedrooms; daily typical Sicilian breakfast served in the terrace facing the sea (or, if you prefer, in the living room).
This property belongs to a member of MAMMASICILY (or Il Console), the exclusive Sicilian Association chaired by the distinguished Sicilian chef Silvana Recupero and by her husband, 'the motorwriter' (Rai, Chin ... Canada) Giovanni Vallone who personally guarantee the quality of the structure.
Also, as for all the other properties advised by MAMMASICILY, you will have a daily assistance for whatever you need (for a no surprises vacation). In fact, the Association, as per by law, has the aim: “... of enhancing the resources of traditions, culinary arts …assuring a good and nice stay to Sicily's guests” (Art. 2)
MAMMASICILY is a no-profit Association focused to the realization of several Sicilian projects, as: the preservation of naturalistic and archeological areas; the printing of old Sicilian texts kept at the library of the Association; the recording of Radio and Tv programs broadcasted all over the world; the preparation of new Sicilian recipes …
Travellers, of course, are welcome to our headquarter. On request you may attend a Sicilian Cooking School with Silvana or an Etna exploration with Giovanni. Also, contact them for any information you want about the property or about their beloved island. We are here to give you the best Sicily you have ever had !
