The Space

The house is extremely comfortable and equipped in the vast territory of Mazzarino, 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 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 Formaggio") 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 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 archaeological 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 ("Ferrovia Circumetnea") 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 vergin 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 in 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.

The Sicily region

Il clima è quello tipico Mediterraneo, con inverni miti caratterizzati da massime che raggiungono e superano i 15°C, periodi di gelo e neve assenti o rarissimi e nel caso comunque di breve durata ed estati molto calde. Le piogge sulla Sicilia non sono complessivamente abbondanti, con medie generali annue inferiori ai 700 mm, concentrate tra il tardo autunno e l'inizio della primavera.

Mazzarino

Nelle vicinanze si trovano ampie zone di foreste dove è possibile fare escursioni. A 5 km di distanza, nel comune di San cono, si trova un maneggio dove è possibile prenotare passeggiate a cavallo. In mezz'ora circa di macchina è possibile raggiungere:

- Aidone con il museo all'interno del quale si trova la Venere di Milo ed i famosi Argenti, la zona archeologica di Morgantina;

- Piazza Armerina con il suo antico centro storico e la Villa del Casale,

-Caltagirone con le sue antiche ville e le famose ceramiche;

- il mare di Gela con la spiaggia di Macchitella.

Ad un'ora circa di distanza si trova l'Etna: con le antiche littorine della ferrovia circumetnea è possibile effettuare un'indimenticabile escursione per vedere le antiche colate laviche ed i paesaggi lunari.

"Classic Sicily"

Masseria Floresta is a huge old manorial farm, owned by the family for generations, with a couple of rental units around the paved central courtyard, wonderfully remote and peaceful but well located for access to archaeological sites and the South coast. Emanuela and Giuseppe are amongst the most hospitable hosts we have ever encountered, and the memory of the few days we were able to spend at the Masseria is one which we shall cherish for a long time to come.
