About 20 minutes away from the town of Noto in the heart of Sicily, this hamlet stands on the site of an ancient convent of the Friars Minor, founded in 1451 and destroyed by the earthquake of 1693. Walking in the structure you will encounter the remains of the ancient walls still visible inside the Borgo. Here you will stay in apartments obtained from structures dating back to the 1700s, renovated respecting the original stones, with their characteristic amber colour. Nature embraces and pervades the village. You will be inebriated by the scent of wild herbs typical of the Mediterranean, you will gather the fruits of the trees and walk within the natural reserve; a true experience of relaxation in a pristine environment. The property has a total of 13 rooms providing up to 28 bed spaces. The rooms are the houses that made up the village in the 18th century. Some of the rooms have a view of the garden and the pool and provides all the comforts of home.

The hamlet is surrounded by nature. In addition to the almost 20 hectares of property, it will be possible to explore the beauties of Mount Alveria, with its caves, forests and anthropological paths. Within the property, you will find several fruit trees, with the Sicilian culture par excellence: figs, apricots, peaches and cherries. All plants and vegetation here are grown without the use of chemical substances, as naturally as possible and it is all used for the dishes. Feel free to pick up what you like, to taste freshly picked fruit from the trees, inebriate yourself with the scents of the Mediterranean. The B&B will be happy to cook for you the vegetables you collected directly from the garden! An authentic place to get away. Reference 4446Z.
