Villa Caruso Home Holiday and Yoga Retreat Sicily

Italy

Description

Located in the heart of Sicily, on the Iblei Mountains, a few miles away from the Unesco Heritage Village Palazzolo Acreide , Villa Caruso is a traditional Mediterranean house, nested on a top of a gorge with terraces covered by olive tree, fruits tree and wild Sicilian flowers and plants. Although few minutes drive from the main village , as soon you will step in you will be far away and feeling at home in Sicily with us! On the first floor of the house there are 3 rooms only for guests; 2 rooms with sharing bathroom and 1 only with private bathroom. On the ground floor a large living room to share with us and eventually other guest although during summer our " salotto " is the garden. The most beautiful things of the house are the 2 hectares of land around you that is almost like having a private park and you can do trekking every day and find a quiet spot only for you. There are 63 centennial olive trees, carrube trees several fruits tree, typical Mediterranean plants and wild herbs. Valentina offers also cooking class on learning how to recognize and cook the Sicilian wild herbs from the garden. The entire villa has been rebuilt on the foundations of a 1856 residence, used by monks of the diocesi of Noto, and still now it's visible a water cisterna of over 10,000 lt . From a secondary access to the villa, through a rocky path you reach the bottom of the valley where there is an ancient well. From the villa you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the Iblei mountains and the valley. The Villa has this name because Caruso in Sicilian means Young "giovane" and also because Caruso is the name of a famous Italian singer and Steve being a musician liked this idea as well. Steve and Valentina moved in this house after 7 years in Cambodia last April 2019 and were working hard to improve this beautiful house and make the guest feel like at their own house. If you also are a cats lover, they have 5 sweet cats (4 from Cambodia and 1 Sicilian) and a nice and quiet dog, all looking for new friends and cuddles.
