Our beautiful farm is situated in a small canyon created by the continuously flowing river inside a natural reserve. There are an incredible number of wild plants and flowers, animals and migratory birds. The river is full of fish and is lined by huge trees including walnut trees. Through the wildness we have found an ancient jumping platform where possibly children and adults through the centuries have enjoyed jumping into the deep pools.

The farm has been abandoned for the the last 60 years, nature took back all the buildings, which we have started restoring. Me (Sicilian) and my wife (UK) after 6 years of off grid life in yurts in England decided to move back to the warmth of Sicily to continue our lifestyle here. This was the first place we found ( or what we feel is that it called us). Last summer we decided to embark on epic journey transporting our yurts, tools and materials from England to Sicily. We arrived on the 10 August 2013.

We ran a conservation organisation in the UK and we are artists, entomologists, and doers. We work hard but believe in living life well and enjoying life's simple riches. We have already created a vegetable garden here (completely chemical free), planted friut trees and welcomed chickens and donkeys as well as set up craft/, educational workshops.

To achive our long term goal to create an educational centre here, at the moment we are needing to run quite a tight ship, for this reason we have asked for the small contribution towards lunch and dinner around 5 euro x day (no more). We love to cook really good, fresh and organic food and you can also learn traditional Sicilian cooking.
