We are Gabriele and Stefania.
We live in a beautiful rural house near the Archeological site of Morgantina, in Aidone’s countryside. The place is relaxing and perfect for a retreat where you get to enjoy the amazing views and all the beauties the sicilian hinterland has to offer.
The house is surrounded by nature, with many olive, almond and fruit trees. When you get inside you’ll find a big living room with a kitchen, a fireplace, and a grand piano, alongside a bathroom and a bedroom.
We live here with two funny and lovely dogs, Pippo and MisterD and a sweet cat, Rocco. We enjoy good vibes and fresh air and we are only an hour drive from the main city of Catania, perfect for a day trip amongsts baroque streets, the Mediterranean sea and the volcano Etna.
Aidone is an old little village in the middle of Sicily, just a few minutes away by car from the charming town of Piazza Armerina with its ancient Romans history and its amazing mosaics at “Villa Romana del Casale”, World Heritage from 1997.
Both towns are not far from Caltagirone, the most famous ceramics city in Sicily and World Heritage from 2002.
Life can be quiet and peaceful in the countryside but it can also offer a rich and extremely friendly environment in Aidone.
Babele project is a dream of ours and an ever-evolving journey. We’d like to create an “open house” for travellers, artists and musicians where people can share their skills and knowledge without any language barriers while getting inspired by beauty, nature and art.
A place where to meditate and heal the mind, a home away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities where to find some rest and recharge the batteries.
If you’ll want to join us, we can assure you’ll have the opportunity to try the authentic Sicilian rural lifestyle experience, while learning some italian and cooking fresh local recipes with us!
We will be waiting for you,
Gabriele & Stefania
