Hi! We are Alessia (36) , Luca (37) and Giacomo (4)
We live in Syracuse, in the countryside, only 1 km away from the sea.
Our project: Le Piante Selvatiche
Imagine an old Sicilian country house, surrounded by a large garden in the wild and a vegetable garden; furnished and lived in a simple but cozy way, in an oasis of peace and tranquility, a few kilometres away from the beach of ” La Pillirina”, in the Marine Protected Area of Plemmirio.
Three dogs waggling in the garden and two cats on the trees.
Well, that is the Piante selvatiche home .
Here we make hospitality and we host cultural events.
We nurture relationships on the territory and promote a network between those who practice the change in their daily lives, spreading beauty and promoting well-being;we encourag a Slow Living and Slow Travel attitude, attentive to people and places.
We are very curious about other cultures, so we will be glad if you want to share our life when not working and at the same time we will manage to give you your free and independent time (Syracuse is not far and you can get to town by bus).
If you’ll spend some time here, please remember that we try to use carefully water, electricity and we try not to waste food.
We are happy to share some meals with you according to your and our needs.
