Our house, an ancient sicilian building totally restored, is spread on two levels.

Lava stone and limestone are the stones which the house was built with. On the ground floor there is the main kitchen that is linked to the living room. There is also a bathroom and a bedroom. On the second floor there are: 1 double bedroom, 1 single bedroom, 1 kitchen and 1 bathroom. The exterior presents a citrus grove of 30.000 square meters ! On the same level of the second floor, outside, there is a relax zone in which you can find the pool and the unforgettable stone oven, perfect to make pizza and meat. Enjoy your holiday at our house !
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.

"Relaxing and peaceful holiday rental"
We stayed at this villa for a week in August and had an amazing holiday. It is quite a distance from the nearest sandy beach (30 min drive) and about 10 min drive to the shops. A car is needed. The property is down quite a steep slope in the middle of huge gardens but is so relaxing. The view is amazing and overlooks sea. The inside was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed. The owners were lovely and popped by a couple of times to make sure we were ok. The only issue was that if you use a few of the electric appliances at the same time, the power cuts out. We were using the oven and washing machine and ended up with no power for 4 hours as we did not know how to turn it on again. The next door neighbour drove us up the road and showed us in the end! Other than that it was amazing!
