Location

L’Agrumeto is an elegant manor house located in the south east of Sicily, close to Syracuse and Noto as well as to Europe’s largest active volcano, Mount Etna. A 10-minutes’ drive takes you into the nearest village, Brucoli – a simple and friendly fishing village with just the essentials to keep you going during your holidays. There are a few bars here, a bakery, a pharmacy, a newsagent and a church, oh! and this is where you will find a lot of fresh fish – sold by the fishermen directly off their boats or on the streets, at the fishmongers and in the few, but very good, restaurants.

Layout

This original 17th century estate invites you to take a step back into ancient Sicily but with all the modern comforts. Upon entering the manor’s gate, you will be charmed to discover the beauty and the wide variety of pleasurable experiences that unfold before you in this little village complete with cobbled alleys and its own small chapel. As you approach the Manor, ten comfortable bedrooms with en suite bathrooms congregate around a square courtyard from which you may access the stunning reception rooms in the main manor. In rich Sicilian colors, these elegant rooms with sweeping ceilings are all furnished with immense charm. These refined rooms reminiscent of the past welcome you to sit and absorb a sense of peace in front of the roaring living room fire or take in the smells of wild herbs by its outdoor swimming pool. Two independent suites are located by the pool with their private patios. In this secluded haven surrounded by 110 hectares of private grounds and gardens, you may jog, walk or drift serenely along, imbibing fresh air and aromas exuded by this fertile land.
