Mandranova, farm and resort, located on the hills of Palma di Montechiaro in the province of Agrigento, not far from the archaeological site of the “Valle dei Templi” and from the sea, is a perfect hide-away with a garden of palm trees and african plants. They offer a stay of well-being and tranquillity in the rustic simplicity of the ancient farmhouse and in the renovated rooms of a an old train station and an old winery. The “gebbia”, formerly used for agricultural irrigation, has been transformed into a small but beautiful swimming pool where you can cool off from the heat of the summer.
15 rooms & suites: in some, the original family furnishings make them warm and genuine, typically Sicilian; in others design and tradition blend harmoniously with the surrounding landscape.
All rooms are very comfortable, equipped with heating and air conditioning.
The little square infinity pool (once an irrigation tank) is perched on a hillside above the farm, with views of the olive trees and fields beyond.
The “Robazza” is an independent villa, surrounded by olive trees, distant 300 meters (a few minutes walking) from the Casale, the main house. This beautiful self-contained villa used to be the estate’s winery. It has been fully restored and modernised in a harmonious blend of old and new. Stone, cement and plaster are the materials used for the restoration. The house is surrounded by olive trees reflecting in the private pool; from the terrace you can enjoy an unparalleled view over the olive grove across to the sea. Robazza consists of 2 ensuite double bedrooms and a twin bedroom. It benefits from its own private infinity pool and an outdoor sitting and eating area with built in charcoal barbecue. It also has a large open plan living room with a small kitchen with stove. The property is available for weekly hire, from Saturday to Saturday, with an option of using the facilities of the main house, such as breakfast, dinner, cookery classes, etc.
