  • Description

    Description

    In the middle of the Alcantara gorges, on the slopes of mt. Etna and watching the old village Castiglione di Sicilia, our place was built.
    Our place is a villa of the nineteenth century, abandoned over the years and recently restoration has begun. And now there's a farmer back, and it's me Giovanni, from Bologna but with south Italian roots. I discovered permaculture in Casamance, Senegal, and I really felt in love with and decided to start here.
    If you like nature, farm, healthy life, silence, music, sociability, solitude... If you love life come and share with us!

    Help

    A part of admiring the landscape and living a rural life I'm starting an organic garden, beekeeping, tomato plantation to produce sauce, pecheas, cooked wine and other products. And of course daily house works. No time to get bored!

    In May 2019 about 30 circus artists will arrive here to do a workshop [incontro di voli 2019] . In this period I'm preparing structures to host this people: eco toilet and showers, scene, rooms, campsite... And I need your help!

    What else ...

    Our place is in the middle of the countryside between Francavilla di Sicilia and Castiglione di Sicilia. 2km from Francavilla. Around here there is so much to see, visit and enjoy. 300metres from Alcantara river! Not very easy solutions with public transports but connected with Catania, Fontanarossa Airport.
