    Beschreibung

    Welcome, we are Enrico and Gioia, living on a farm based on a permaculture vision. The land is located in such a beautiful area surrounded by the nature reserve 'La Timpa' with views of the volcanic coastline and Etna.
    We have a dog, a cat, tortoises and busy bees, also on the land there are wild bees that have moved in, the forest garden is rich in diversity with plants and trees from all around the world.

    We love healthy, seasonal and genuine food and we enjoy to cook and have all the meal together!
    * NO CHEMICAL PRODUCTS ALLOWED, BRING NATURAL PRODUCTS (soaps, toothpaste)

    P.S.: Please bring some of your local food (we prefer organic), if you want to share with us the culture of your place!
    (Gioia go crazy for chocolate and Enrico traditional food from your place)

    From September Enrico starts teaching at the music school in Catania in the afternoon (he's a percussionist)
    Gioia starts the harvest period of Olive, herbs and dried fruit.


    ** The closest airport is Catania Fontanarossa, you can take the bus in the airport to Catania train Station and then take the train to Guardia / S. Venerina. We'll come to pick you up in that train station.
