The Farm "Il Roveto" is only a few hundred of meters away from the beautiful and uncontaminated beach of Vendicari. 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.
