Sleep inside this house is an experience of absolute wellness and relaxation, as it has a fresh and pleasant climate due to the green garden all around, quiet and at the evening it's surrounded by pink and orange sunsets.
The house is spacious and can comfortably accomodate 10 adults. It disposes of three large bedrooms: two with king size beds and one with three comfortable bunk beds.
There are two bathrooms (toilet, bidet, shower and one has a bath too), one is connected with one of the bedrooms.
In addition, there is a large living room with fireplace, a large and well equipped kitchen with its dining room and a veranda.
Outside there is a shower, sink, barbecue, tables and a cozy wood-burning oven suited to prepare the most delicious dishes and pizza (and it will be easy have a dinner under the shining summer starlight) and cleary a super biologic garden of tangerine, avogado and others trees, plants and vegetable for your dishes.
There is also the possibility of adding an additional cot for neccessity of the smallest. The house is equipped with linen, fan, washing machine and appliances.
A few kilometers away (km 29) is located the famous Donnafugata Castle with its rich rooms which were the set of Luchino Visconti's unforgattable movie "Il Gattopardo"; the small village of Punta Secca (40 minutes) where you can find the places which have been featured in the series "Inspector Montalbano".
For lovers of the sea, the nearest beach is approximately 5 minutes by car at Marina di Acate; another nice seaplace is Scoglitti, with its large beach, just 20 minutes by car from the house (there you can eat a very good ice cream and also find nice fish restaurants).
My favourite sea place is the beautiful beach of Randello, 25 minutes far, with its special sand dunes and surrounded by dense Mediterranean vegetation within a protected natural area (in the guide that guests find at home is explain how to find it).
