In an area characterized by millennia of history and traditions, stands the Azienda Agricola e Resort Mandranova, in an idyllic place surrounded by a garden of palm trees and African plants. The apartments are located in a renovated farmhouse and in the rooms of an ancient millstone and a former railway station. Offer also the possibility of staying in two independent villas, the "Robazza", immersed in the olive grove, and the "Casello", overlooking the garden and adjacent to the Casale.
The land that inspired Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa for his famous novel "Il Gattopardo", Palma di Montechiaro, hosts the Mandranova Resort. Surrounded by a vast property pleasantly isolated in the quiet countryside, offers a relaxing stay of relaxation and privacy, with a truly spectacular view of the surrounding nature.
A typical Sicilian residence, with its warehouses and old stables, it has now been transformed into an elegant residence that combines the traditions of the area with the modern concept of hospitality. Rustic furnishings live together with modern elements, creating an environment with a simple and welcoming atmosphere, just a few minutes from the magnificent sea of Sicily.
At the Mandranova Resort the rooms are arranged in different environments. The main body, the Casale, once composed of stables and warehouses, houses 6 double rooms and 3 suites, furnished with original family furnishings that transport the guest in the typical atmosphere of Sicily of the past. Two rooms are on the first floor of the Casello, originally the site of a small railway station of the early '900. Spacious and full of light, they have a four-poster bed and an independent air conditioning system. In the Robazza, an ancient stone and plaster millstone, there are two more bedrooms on the ground floor and a third one on the turret, from which one can enjoy a magnificent panorama that reaches the sea.
The traditional flavors of Sicily are the undisputed protagonists of the Ristorante del Mandranova, where the dishes are prepared with the products of the company and the territory. The farm produces an extra virgin olive oil of excellence and in the restaurant you have the opportunity to taste delights from the ancient family recipes.
For moments of relaxation during the summer you will find moments of complete well-being in the outdoor pool, while inside you can accompany a good book in the Library located in Casale, perhaps in front of the hot crackling of fire in the fireplace.
Mandranova Resort is particularly keen to introduce visitors to the Company's products, a true expression of the essence of the territory, with cooking classes, tastings and, in November, giving guests the opportunity to participate personally in olive harvesting. and to the production of oil.
