A PERSONAL GUIDE OF OUR TERRITORY FROM VALENTINA DI CASA FARLISA

I will preface this Casa Farlisa’s 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.

Se volete espandere il vostro itinerario, qui sotto troverete una selezione su un territorio più ampio, della bravissima Caterina Zanzi di Conosco un posto, arrivata a Casa Farlisa per caso, come nostra ospite nel 2020, successivamente diventata anche mamma di uno dei nostri mici, Gigio. www.conoscounposto.com/sicilia-orientale-cosa-vedere-dove-mangiare/

And if that still isn’t enough, you can discover a selection of the best experiences and wonders that Sicily has to offer, thanks to the incredible guide written by Filippo di Fresco, Unforgettable Sicily: The Best Moments to Experience for an Extraordinary Vacation. Available for purchase as an e-book.

ENJOY YOUR VACATION IN SICILY AND AT CASA FARLISA!
