  • Description


    I am a mature, nature loving and travel experienced man who decided to escape from the crowded city to the mountains in the sicilian fields, a beautiful place called Parco delle Madonie, from about 100 km from the capital Palermo. Here I recovered an abandoned property, where I entered horses, goats, chickens and dogs. I have created a small farm with the purpose of become autosusteinable in some ways and to increase the promotion of the land and local products with natural tecniches, without stressing animals and giving them a good life quality.

    The house is located at 900 mts high. Close to the farm (1 km) there is a small town made of stone called Petralia Sottana and Petralia Soprana (5 km)where you have a great view from Monte delle Madonnie. About 20 km from here, at 1700 mts high there is a ski field at Piano Battaglia, where you can find amazing paths for hiking, beautiful local vegetation and an incredible panoramic view. A hundred km from here, there is Palermo, an historical and multicultural city, one of the most important cities in Europe. You can take the bus or a van from and to Palermo. Usually I am available to give you a ride and show you some places close from here.
