Staying on a farm in Sicily

Staying on a farm in Sicily

Agriturismo Valle di Chiaramonte is one of two working farms owned by the Gulino family on the Italian island of Sicily. The main focus of the Gulinos is beef, dairy and olive oil production but they also have some rooms where you can stay at one of their farms. The agriturismo can host up to 20 guests in its nineteenth century stone buildings and also has a restaurant, a swimming pool and a children’s play area. When my family of four shared a room there in the heat of August we found it a great base for exploring some of the Baroque towns of Southern Sicily.


Agriturismo Valle di Chiaramonte is very close to the new airport at Comiso – about 10 minutes drive away. Ryanair fly to Comiso from London Stansted (you can read my flight review here). The farm is in the middle of the countryside with views towards the hilltop town of Chiaramonte. Chiaramonte is one of the many towns in the region which was destroyed by a huge earthquake in 1693 and was subsequently rebuilt in golden stone in the Baroque style.
