Apartments and holiday homes in Sicily

Cottage with garden, swimming pool and Spa inside the Parco Naturale delle Madonie, only fifteen minutes from the sea.

Rocca di Mezzogiorno Gardenia is located on the property of the homonymous farm, in the Parco Naturale delle Madonie, well-known natural area for hiking, also great to enjoy the pleasure of the sea (only fifteen minutes far). 
Our apartment is a typical Sicilian countryside house, furnished with some traditional wooden furniture but also some modern details. The room comes with two single beds (that can be transformed in a double bed), a dining table, and a kitchen where our guests can prepare delicious dishes, using gorgeous local products. The bathroom comes with a shower, and the house is equipped with air conditioner and heat pumps. The garden and terrace, at disposal of the guests, to dine or relax with a glass of wine. Guests can enjoy all areas of the farm’s land, including free use of the common oudoor swimming pool (available in summertime) and Spa (sauna, massage tables and two jacuzzi), plus some mountain bikes for hiking in the Natural Park and a outdoor fitness trail. Our house is great for travellers who want to feel surrounded by the beauty of the sicilian nature, disconnecting from their daily life. It’s a place of relax and tranquillity, where guests will discover again the pleasure of a simple and genuine life.


Rocca di Mezzogiorno is located in a unknown area of Parco delle Madonie, but not less welcoming and interesting. Along rural roads, the guest, opening the door, will be in front of rock walls, caves, thickets with figs, mulberries, pistachios and also some centuries-old olive trees. From these dirt roads, leaving from Rocca di Mezzogiorno land, the guests can reach Himera river; the bravest and specialists can trek up on more dangerous paths towards the top of Monte Cervi. At the starting point of the paths, guests can train with an outdoor fitness trail, and also use some mountain bikes available at Rocca di Mezzogiorno. Some places around the area are perfect for birdwatching. Guests can reach several interesting places and towns. Sclafani bagni (15 kms) and Caltavuturo (11 kms) are very peculiar: the former has amazing thermal baths, the latter hosts a Phiale aurea perfectly recovered. Other amazing places to discover are archaeological museum of Himera (25kms), Cefalù (40kms) one of the most beautiful seatown of Italy, and Petralia (45kms). Our guests can reach Palermo (70kms) by bus, but having the car allows to discover enchanted places on this hidden land.
