I will preface this blog with a personal selection of our favorite places, made to guarantee you the best possible stay, in the areas of Scicli, Modica, Ragusa, this just to start. Then we will broaden our gaze even further, further on, expanding towards the areas of Noto, Syracuse and Catania, up to embrace the entire island.

This island of Sicily is a wonderful territory, to be discovered in several stages. From the sea, to the mountains, to the wonderful Etna. A synthesis of natural, architectural, culinary and artistic beauties, where you can live unforgettable experiences, kissed by the warm sun of this land and pampered by excellent food.

It is understood that we cannot guarantee for the work of others, so do not hold us responsible if there should be any inconvenience in the suggested services. Especially in mid-August …. And just so to remind you, always book the restaurant or the location on the beach, in high season and beyond, you never know.

If you would like to expand your itinerary, below is a selection on a broader territory, by the very talented Caterina Zanzi of Conosco un posto, who arrived at Casa Farlisa by chance as our guest in 2020 and later also became the mother of one of our kittens, Gigio. By now the undisputed star of Cate’s heart and with a large following even on Instagram. .. www.conoscounposto.com/sicilia-orientale-cosa-vedere-dove-mangiare/

And if that’s still not enough, you can discover a selection of the best experiences and wonders that Sicily offers, thanks to the incredible guide written by Filippo di Fresco, Unforgettable Sicily: The best moments to live for an extraordinary holiday. Purchasable as an e-book.

For any further advice we remain at your disposal. We are always happy to be able to show you in person the best of our territory, according to your needs and requests.
