The villa, which is part of the historical heritage of the territory of Enna, has recently been renovated. The restoration and its subsequent conservative consolidation, took account of all the architectural aspects to offer class and comfort of a hotel with high-end. Covering an area of about 350 square meters are located four double bedrooms and as many bathrooms with shower, 2 living rooms, 1 rest room, and a huge fully equipped kitchen. All the floors are original and have been restored with great care. All the furnishings are very simple and elegant and expertly blend a dry contemporary design with solutions of decoration and furniture typical of the area and the era in which the property was built. On approximately five acres of land, you will find natural wonders such as a citrus grove, an orchard, Mediterranean and ornamental plants, a belvedere where to have breakfasts and dinners with the incomparable view of Mount Etna and the countryside below, man-made marvels such as: swimming pool and solarium, children's playground, outdoor fitness corner, a large private car park. Below the pool, 4 showers, toilets. Upon your arrival you will find typical baskets for fruit picking and a whole property available!

Breakfast included: Our chef Silvana, the Chef of the Sicilians, has a gift for you ! She will deliver you a tasting of genuine and healthy typical Sicilian breakfast directly hand-made by her (plumcakes, cookies, tarts …)

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.

The Sicily region

Sicily is the land of sun, sea and history. The land where the sky is perennially the colour of sapphire, the domain of dolphin and swordfish. The land where you can find natural settings for sport and relaxations. The land where you can feel history simply looking into the eyes of locals, living witnesses of the past dominations.

In Sicily climate oscillates between 15°C (January) and 40°C, and sometimes more, in July-August.

Catania

The beautiful and picturesque village of Centuripe is about 50 km away from Catania and is included in an archaeological, geographical and naturalistic context important worldwide. It is nicknamed 'The balcony of Sicily' due to its privileged position on many natural wonders of the island, mainly Etna, whose enjoys unparalleled views. The past of Centuripe is of exceptional importance, as evidenced by, among other things, the numerous archaeological sites scattered throughout its territory, city center and surrounding areas: necropolis, thermal ruins, furnaces for ceramics, medieval castles, Hellenistic houses ... Finally, the A19 Catania-Palermo is just minutes away, and from there you can reach all other most important areas of Central and Eastern Sicily.
