The farm set in the typical landscape of the Sicilian country-side, at 800 meters of altitude, on the edge of the natural park of Madonie and only 30 minutes far from the Cefalù sea. The farm has a charming atmosphere and an extensive panaromic view of the surrounding landscapes, including the volcano Etna. The farm is within 3 kms of the archaeological site of Polizzi Generosa, which is an important local town.

Visitors will be impressed by the often stunning landscape of the island's interior.
