Independent and autonomous former farmhouse of the late 19th century, surrounded by the greenery of a 13-hectare farm cultivated with olive and citrus trees, it is located on a hill that, looking at the sea, overlooks the splendid valley of the Fitalia river.

The space
The very green and generous nature, the silence and the absolute exclusivity of the place entirely fenced with gateway to the property, make this place magical and evocative for those who love a relaxing holiday and full rest.
Warm, cozy and with attention to detail, this cottage lends itself very much to romantic and naturalistic stays.
The site allows you to attend the olive harvest that is usually carried out in November/December.
It's a unique experience to live, where "heart and sweat" come together in a perfect marriage.
The harvesting practices are still those of the past and therefore completely traditional: men and women bent down to stretch the nets, shake branches with appropriate and long sticks ("rumazzaturi") capable of vigorously "beating" the leaves of the plants to drop the fruits, without the absolute use of machines.
The presence of a neighbouring farm will make it possible to witness the milking of animals: cows, sheep and goats and the transformation of milk products into ricotta and Nebrodi probes.
In the vicinity of the Gorna house, in fact, and precisely at the stable of the neighboring Mr. Goofy Terrible, you can find dogs, cats, pigs, hens, rabbits, turkeys, sheep, cows and horses that can delight those who love the bucolic and rural dimension, absolutely present in this place.

Amo ospitare e lo faccio col cuore accogliendo nelle mie casette, i miei ospiti, come amici di vecchia data.
Considero un privilegio esercitare questa attività e al tempo stesso una "preziosa chance" per far apprezzare la nostra meravigliosa terra e lasciare ai miei viaggiatori il ricordo di una Sicilia più autentica.

During your stay

I usually welcome my guests myself with the other commitments I need.
While living far away from my little house, I love going during my guest's stay just to say hello and bring back a memory.
