Location and style
Il Limoneto is a traditional farmhouse right in the heart of the Ionian coast, commonly known as the “Riviera dei Limoni”.
It expands for over more than 4 hectares and is surrounded by a flourishing green terraced lemon orchard. From here you can admire the wonderful landscape and take a glimpse at its rare beauty, from Etna to the Ionian Sea and the rich nature reserve called “La Timpa” an area of natural beauty and dipped in a splendid garden of lemons and typical flowers of the Mediterranean.
Time has not altered its original structure that includes the manor house, the farm houses, the ancient millstone, and fascinating paths with olive trees.
Man lives in strict contact with the surroundings, each trees has its own character and history. They are different from one another. Today, after six generations, our family continue to produce “organic” lemons alongside with the Farmhouse activity. You can smell the scent of citrus in the air. If you plunge yourself into this “Sea of Lemons”; it will leave you an unforgettable memory, made up of silence and relaxation.
Accomodation is offered in the ancient manor house, cottages and a recently built dependence situated on old vineyard, overlooking the sea and Mount Etna.
The guests are welcome to use the outside and walk along the beautiful paths where you can admire the Olive trees. Showers and barbecues are located on the sun terraces. There is also a large reading room.
You can also access the Internet free of charge, through our Wi-Fi spots.
Only 800 meters, by car or on foot, lies the village of Scillichenti for all your needs.
