The agriturismo

This agriturismo is located on the Tyrrenean shore of Sicily, enclosed in the gulf between Tindari and Milazzo, and is part of the Municipality of Furnari, a small hill center in the province of Messina about 145 meters above sea level (north side of Monte Croce, foothill of the Monti Peloritani). This agriturismo was born from an initiative of the farmhouse owners who, to enhance and restore the ancient 19th-century splendor of the master house of one of Sicily’s most beautiful courts in the area, have given life to a place able to offer quality accommodations and cooking, established on the enhancement of the rural traditions and peasant culture of Messina. At the agriturismo La Camelia feeling at home is the rule, not a luxury.

The accommodation

The ancient farmhouse offers 10 comfortable rooms, each characterized by elegance and sobriety, and carefully restored and furnished. All the rooms, furnished in rustic style but also elegant, have a private bath with shower, mini fridge, air conditioning, color TV, and telephone. Each room offers a splendid view, from the hills to the sea. Single and triple bed rooms are available.

The Restaurant unites wholesome products and traditional specialities, which is its strong point. The cooking, inspired by simplicity and tradition, enhances the colors and flavors and follows the seasons, with a selection aimed at highlighting local products. From appetizers and pasta to fish and meat as well as desserts, all the ingredients come from this farm or other local farmers so that guests may experience the true flavors and scents of Sicily. Typical dishes are reinterpreted both in preparation and presentation, with a careful selection of wines. You may also choose the house menu, with a sampling of appetizers, two pasta dishes, and an entrée with side dish, plus fruit or dessert, or you may choose from the main menu with particular meats. If requested beforehand, you may also select from a rich fish menu.

Activities and surrounding

Nestled in the hillside, this agriturismo is located only 5 minutes from the sea and 20 minutes from the mountains, thus allowing visitors to quickly reach some of the main tourist spots in the province of Messina. From the agriturismo you may easily reach both the seashore in the Municipality of Falcone (2 km) and the prestigious tourist port of Portorosa (3 km). Nearby is also the town of Tindari (6 km), renowned for its sanctuary dedicated to the Black Madonna and a Greek theater where, in the summer, performances and concerts are held with artists from around the world. On the Monti Nebrodi you may admire the Castle of Montalbano (20 km), built between 1302 and 1311 and part of the great projects of Federico Barbarossa to provide Sicily with fortresses to defend the island. You can also easily reach the town of Milazzo (25 km), which offers the best of itself during the summer months, since it has two beaches: one with pebbles to the west, and one with sand to the east. From Milazzo there are hydrofoils and ferries for the Isole Eolie, in only 30 minutes.

    "Beautiful holiday"

    The location of the Guthofes is optimal, although the highway is nearby and you can see out of the hotel towards the sea, but is absolutely not annoying. The sea is very close and easy to reach by car in 5 minutes. Sometimes a railway runs very close to the farmyard, but is not too distracting, it does not take many turns and it is usually on the go during the day anyway. We stayed 2 weeks at La Camelia and have many day trips gemacht.Der manager of La Camelia is us standing always happy and good with words and deeds. The whole team of La Camelia has taken us very nice and we felt very comfortable around us. It was really familiar. The restaurant is also highly recommended, if you do not feel like the evening to sit back in the car. The facility is very clean and tidy and you realize that there is a concern Angelo to make the most of the yard. I want to thank again the whole team and especially with Angelo and his wife Giusy heartily. If possible, we (Jan, Christian and I) love to go back. Mille grazie e arrivederci!

    "Beautiful yard, clean, conveniently located, friendly team!"

    07/03/2013

    ch was the end of June 2013 for 5 days at La Camelia guest and am thrilled. My room and the lounge was tastefully decorated and very clean. The dedicated team of La Camelia has very well accepted me as a solo traveler and has given me good advice. Trips can be organized from there, you have nothing to worry about. The farm is conveniently located, but we hear nothing of all this. I arrived with a rental car, there is ample parking at the house. During the day I visited some beautiful and nearby mountain villages, besides you can still reach Messina, Taormina and Catania. The breakfast was delicious and varied, served in primarily food from own production. La Camelia I can unconditionally recommend and will definitely stay there again when I'm near. Thank you very much, thank you, Angelo!
