Nature Walk Right at the Footsteps of Our Villa

Just a 2 minutes walk from the villa there is a dry river torrent that its the ideal spot for a nature walk, it will take you right into Modica, its about 2 km long, its an uncontaminated spot…surely a fun walk for adults and kids…all you need a walking stick,good shoes and a will of adventure.

Horse Riding - Just a Great Outdoors Experience

Not far from the villa there is a very well equipped horse riding outfit…Salvatore has 35 horses between full size horses and half size horses, plus a few ponies as well that he lovingly cares for, if you feel like going for a leisurely horse ride he is very willing to make your experience a memorable one.

The ride starts from the stables and it proceeds to a nature trail in a protected forested area, it lasts about 1 1/2 hours and it has a true country feel.

During summer months he will ride only late afternoons as it would be too hot for the horses.

Price is 25 euros per person.

A Little Corner of Paradise for Nature Lovers and Hikers

It’s called  call it the Grand Canyon of Sicily! The “CAVA GRANDE DEL CASSIBILE”.

Cavagrande del Cassibile, the big gorge of the Cassibile creek,it is located in southeastern part of Sicily, south of the town of Siracusa in the Hyblaeans Mountains . This is a limestone plateau full of karst features and overgrown by dense Mediterranean macchia (low growing shrubs) .

The canyon runs for about 10 km,  its been carved into the plateau by the Cassibile creek which runs all year round .

The gorge provides an unique flora, some of the plants are endemic. Their splendour enfolds in early spring until june and some flowers might blossom after the first autumn rains in october / november.

The site is a natural reserve protected since 1990 and there are some restrictions imposed on the area.

Cavagrande is worth while a visit the whole year round – the most interesting season surely is springtime with all the flowers and orchids blossoming.

Its a fantastic place to spend the day going hiking, bird watching,exploring with the kids, and during the summer to take a dive from the many cliffs into the crystal clear ponds that run along the canyon.

There are fantastic hiking trails, its important to bring good walking shoes, water, first aid kit (you never know), kids will love it.

Here are the GPS Coordinates Lat/Lon: 36.96827°N / 15.11341°E.

Its located about 45 minutes drive from the villa.
