Photos and Description of this Cassibile holiday cottage

Casal Sikelio is situated in the site of an ancient manor dated from 1800, and it stretches on over 2 hec-tares of farm land, plenty of lemon trees, orange trees, and century old olive trees.

The original architectural complex, belonged to aristocratic families, is composed of an old palm grove dated from 1833. There are stone grinders and presses used for grape crushing and olive crushing. The stables, the barns and the seasonal workers accommodations were situated next to the palm grove.

The owner’s summer residence was built on the first floor in 1868. A second part, built in the early 1900s, was used as a storehouse for the storage and the conservation of all the products resulted from the production and harvest.

Today, part of these establishments, after a long renovation process started in 2008 and still in progress, became the premises of Casal Sikelio, a charming blend between country tradition and modernity.

About Antonino

I’m a young businessman with the passion and experience in the olive oil industry spanning over 5 generations. With a lot of sacrifice,my family and I decided to take over a typical old Sicilian manor and to restore it to its old splendour. Today we named it: Casal Sickelio.

I’m a bass player and a painter. Even without my paint brushes, I’ve discovered that my artistic tempe-rament never runs out.

Antonino purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Antonino chose Syracuse

I’ve travelled a lot and I’ve met a lot of people over the years, but with time I’ve realized that there isn’t anything better than my country. The rediscovery of the tradition, art, food, scent, and warmth that only your compatriots can give you, made me realize that I want to invest my future here and dedicate the rest of my life spreading the word of what Sicily has to offer to those who decide to visit it.

My ideal way to travel is with a backpack, a tent and comfortable shoes. By just looking around, you realize that even the littlest stone has a story to tell.

What makes this cottage unique

Going up on the stairs of the fist floor terrace, you can have a glimpse of Fontane Bianche beach and the Hyblaean Mountains. You can still hear the echoes of the old tools working the ground, reviving those moments in the present.

Siamo stati in questo meraviglioso casale dal 1 al 11 ottobre ’14 ed è stata una vacanza oltre ogni aspettativa e il fascino e la storia del Casale contribuisce a farla diventare una vacanza da sogno. Una vacanza indimenticabile in un luogo incantevole con il proprietario Antonino molto gentile, disponibile simpatico e discreto. L’appartamento è molto confortevole e accessoriato, con ambienti puliti e curati, comodità di accesso per l’auto… insomma nessun tipo di disturbo in un contesto silenzioso, immerso nella campagna… ma in una posizione strategica per visitare le meraviglie della Sicilia.

Owner's Response: Grazie mille a voi Cinzia, Antonio e la piccola Kelly! (cosa si fa a dimenticare?) Ospitarvi per me è stato un grandissimo piacere, e leggere di questa vostra esperienza mi riempie di orgoglio. Spero di rivedervi ancora, e sono sicuro che tornerete molto presto a trovarmi. Un grosso e caro saluto dalla Sicilia, dalla mia famiglia, e da Casal Sikelio! Antonino.
