The property is located in the Modica countryside and is the result of a careful and skilful recovery of an ancient peasant structure, a "Palmento", used in the past for the processing of grapes. The renovations, which began in 2013 and completed in 2016, strictly respected the old building, reusing part of the original existing stones, to reconstruct the facades and reinforce the doors, as the Modican tradition rules. The principles of green building have been combined with tradition and ancient values, integrating the best technologies, to make the property energetically autonomous and creating a constructed wetland system that allows the recovery of waste water to water the garden. Consistently the pool was filled with salt water. In addition, for the sheer pleasure of rediscovering the gifts of nature, there is a rich seasonal vegetable garden and an area of aromatic plants. The property consists of 7 apartments spread over a total of approximately 450sqm of covered area, each with a mezzanine and equipped with kitchen and bathroom with shower. There is a large living area, accessible from comfortable independent entrances and an industrial kitchen, a covered veranda, ideal for dinners and events, and a large private garden of approximately 10,000 square meters.The property is prepared for receptive use and has already been active for 3 years and it has an excellent position, as it is only a few kilometers away from the main baroque cities such as Modica, Ragusa, Caltagirone, Noto, and from the seaside areas such as the Vendicari reserve, Marzamemi, Santa Maria del Focallo, Sampieri and many other precious Sicilian villages.
