Near the little village of Troina, in the Nebrodi mountains region, this agriturismo was just the perfect little gem who left us great everlasting impressions. First of all thanks to the kindness of Concetta, the owner of the place who studied agronomy and runs the place and the farm with only biological products. The place is wonderful, an old restored village in stones which creates a beautiful hazienda. The rooms have style. We were the only ones there so we could choose our room and picked one with a lovely balcony with an unique view on the smoking Etna, the olive trees and the beautiful hills. Most of all, the diners there were just unbelievable (and far too much): everything is homemade from the products of the farm - 1 > First, antipastis with fresh ricotta, marinated mushrooms, bruschette, meat balls, specialties from the mountains... - 2 > Then, homemade pasta, pesto with pistacchio and almonds... - 3 > Then secundo ! Ham with aubergines, cheese, raisins, garlic. // or Farm chicken with great mediterranean vegetables... 4 > homemade ice-cream or fruits... Well, it was the greatest food ever and we had difficluty to find any restaurant interesting afterwards. The atmosphere was really unique and interesting with whole family (grandparents, children, little kittens...) living there. The little villages around are not much touristic but really interesting, try Sperlinga and Troina... That's where the photographer Robert Capa took one of his most famous pictures. Our favorite stay in Sicily !
New: there is a huge swimming pool near the house (it can get real hot in the summer afternoons).
