We are living in a tourist area along the South-east coast of the Sicily. Here the sea is splendid, the water is crystal clear and clean, the beach of fine and golden sand. There are many reefs and natural reservoirs. We have a farm with lemon gardens, olives trees and vineyard close to Noto Marina. We are preserving the original features and natural character with stone walls, old well, a lot of different fruits and trees. We have some animals: one donkey, some bees and some chickens. We tried to respect the nature starting from the way to take energies. We have photovoltaics and solar panel. Hour agricultural activities is bio. We also rent our 6 accommodation to the tourist.
We always need some small mason work.
