VILLA Zottopera is an old 17th-18th century villa surrounded by century old olive trees from which a renowned oil is obtained.
The villa has an elegant area with garden and swimming pool and it is located in the countryside of Chiaramonte Gulfi (RG) in a place that is interesting for its art and culture: Ragusa Ibla, Modica, Agrigento, Siracusa, Noto, Caltagirone, etc.
Only a half hour's drive from some lovely beaches, Villa Zottopera is a wonderful agriturismo, a very well preserved example of a grand, farm estate. It's a really good base for easy days out to discovery "real" Sicily. The lovely historical towns of Comiso, Ragusa Ibla, Modica, incredible Baoque towns of Sicily's south-east corner, and yet more fantastic beaches, are within striking distance. One of our favourite towns in Sicily, Caltagirone, is only about 24 Km and, famous for ceramics, it is exactly as one might imagine a Sicilian town be, almost as if leapt out of a film
Guests can taste the simple and tasty dishes of the local farmer and stay in suggestive comfortable suite-flats. The Villa with the old buildings adjoining it and the Sicilian courtyard (baglio), the little church, the garden, the swimming pool, give an unforgettable moment of suggestive and poetic atmosphere, as well as a simple and friendly climate, thanks to the small number of guests and to our discrete company and careful service.Courses: Preparation of typical products of the traditional Sicilian cuisine - tasting of olive oil.
