This beautiful estate, dating back to the 17th century, was originally an oil mill and the original machinery is still preserved as decoration in the large dining hall.
Today it is run as an ‘agriturismo’ – farming hotel, offering people to stay in the tranquillity and countryside atmosphere in this remote, but still comfortable accessible hide-out.
The scenery is beautiful, with an open, agricultural landscape, the Mediterranean sea and the impressive Le Madonie mountains to rest your eyes on. Apart from the cowbells and bleating sheep, the silence is overwhelming.
In the price is included 10 hectares of land, arable and pasture. The land is also well suited for olives and fruit. It is possible to buy a nearby structure, suitable for cheese production to make “caprino”, goat cheese, keeping the goats on this land. Apart from the land included, there are around 90 additional and adjacent hectares of land possible to buy from the same seller. The possibilities are immense.
The estate is constructed in the form of a ‘baglio’ – the main corp, two wings, and an internal courtyard. It has a reception, a large dining hall, a restaurant kitchen plus six apartments/guest rooms. Besides, an old stone structure on the side, with a permit for making two additional apartments. There is a building permit for a 12×6 m pool included. Also, there is a permit for converting another 40 sqm stone building to a bakery/pizzeria with an antique wood-fired pizza oven in place.
Today the apartments have no kitchen, but it is possible to add a small kitchen in each of them at a very reasonable cost.
The road to the property is asphalted and brand new, which is very advantageous and rare to find for a property this secluded. Nearest towns are Collesano on 7 kilometers distance (10 minutes) and Campofelice di Roccella on 12 kilometers distance (15 minutes). In Campofelice you also find vast, sandy beaches. The famous town on Cefalu is some 25 minutes drive away. There is also a project ongoing to construct a new road down, ending by the autostrada (7 km away), which would mean that you would significantly reduce the time to get to major cities/airports of Sicily.
