A LARGE ESTATE NESTLED IN THE SICILIAN COUNTRYSIDE
Casa Farlisa today is an elegant villa, the result of the loving restoration of an old Iblean farmhouse from the late 19th century.
Our story begins here, back in 2010. During a short vacation, my mother reached this corner of Sicily and fell in love with the warm welcoming atmosphere that beautiful Scicli gave her. So in a mad moment of passion, he decided to acquire a dilapidated farmhouse 5 kilometers from the beach of Sampieri. The sea and the countryside, have always been, for her, the place of quiet, the coveted “Buen Retiro.” Casa Farlisa was the realization of that dream. Embracing my mother’s dream and my love for Sicily, I moved, in 2017, from the city of Milan to Scicli with the goal of renovating the entire property, thanks to my experience as an architect and green designer. In that same year I founded Casa Farlisa, reinterpreting Sicilian tradition in a contemporary style, with great attention to detail and essentiality. Since then, I have been welcoming people and friends from all over the world, seeking peace, relaxation and good food. Together we do everything we can, to offer you an authentic and unforgettable experience of Sicily.
