Il Roveto
picture of the Il Roveto farmstay
Built in the 1762, the farm "il Roveto" is an example of baroque rural architecture placed in the middle of a nature and fauna context that is one of the most important in the south of Europe.

The building, besides a vital rural activity developped on a 50 hectars area, offers services of hospitality and accomodations once reserved to the staff of the farm. Since 1976 our Farm works in the holidays sector. So we have a considerable experience in the rural hospitality, nevertheless we remain a calm refuge for those who wish to escape from the urban chaos.
For a taste of Sicily, guests at “ Il Roveto “ may eat the typical dishes of Sicilian cuisine in many “ trattorie “ and small restaurants both in the country side and in the towns. Dishes of the traditional country cuisine are served at “ Il Roveto “ too.

Walking on the paths of the naturalistic Reserve some enchanting localities like Calamosche and San Lorenzo are easily reachable. The clear water and the intact fauna of the sea offers the possibility of very agreeable dives even to the less experienced.
Birdwatching is very popular ( guided tours are available ) particularly during the nesting period. Two shelters house are placed at the border of the pounds of the Preserved Area, one of the most important and well-preserved wet areas in Europe.
The farm-house hosts a small country museum where many gears, paraphernalia and old instruments once used to cultivate the fields and harvest the crops are collected.
For the art lovers the towns of Noto, Palazzolo, Siracusa, Caltagirone, Modica and Ragusa are a real paradise and deserve a visit. Very close to the farm are the pictoresque fisherman villages of Portopalo and Marzamemi.
