Located in the Val di Noto, in the vicinities of Avola, the agritourism Chiusa di Carlo is situated within a 40 hectares citrus orchard biologically cultivated.
The eighteenth century manor is amongst the few such buildings in Eastern Sicily. The name baglio is used to indicate a typical Sicilian rural summer residence, mostly owned by noble families. The recently restored Baglio of Chiusa di Carlo dates from the eighteenth century and is surrounded by a splendid citrus orchard yielding mainly a typical lemon called “LIMONE di SIRACUSA”. Particular architectural value is attributed to the charming internal courtyard on which all the rooms overlook.
The Baglio has been finely restored recently, paying particular attention to the selection of materials such as typical stones and local ceramics.
The rooms and the mansion overlook the charming internal courtyard. All the rooms with valuable interior fittings are air-conditioned and equipped with TV LCD, refrigerator, Internet WI-FI, safe and are also suitable for autumn and winter stays. One room fully equipped with facilities for disabled people is also available upon request.
Many lanes and paths run through the citrus orchard for relaxing walks or bicycle rides. Runners, be them expert or not, will also enjoy the available routes. Although surrounded by a classical countryside landscape, the agritourism Chiusa di Carlo is just a few hundred meters far from the sea.
