The agriturismo

For over 300 years Coscio has belonged to the family of Counts, the Gaetani di Oriseo, who have always administrated the farm, first as a large-landed estate and later as intensive farmland. Today, it is run by the last heir of the Gaetani and her husband, who personally manage the estate.
The property measures 83,000 hectares along the hills of the Municipality of Naro, a city rich in history and art.

The accommodation

Among the rolling hills you’ll find vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and spacious farmland surrounding a lake, the center of the estate. The country homes scattered across the estate have been transformed into independent apartments, with all modern-day comforts, though maintaining their ancient style and timeless charm. They all possess a wonderful view, spanning from the Etna to the Nebrodi and the Madonie. Currently, the estate can host up to 20 guests. Renovation work is underway for three other buildings so as to host up to 55 people. A camping ground, with parking lots and camper services, is also under construction.

The estate offers different kinds of rooms, starting with a single-bed chamber up to a room that can accommodate 4 guests (apartment). We also offer amusement, nature, relaxation, and tasting of typical local products.

The ancient nunnery, with its courtyard, which lends its name to the estate, has been transformed into a restaurant for guests. Over the years it has changed, profoundly altering its original appearance; restoration work has attempted to maintain the original structure. Here you may enjoy peasant specialties made with freshly picked ingredients. Guests may also savor wines, olive oil, and other products made onsite. Dishes also for celiacs and those following a diet. The restaurant is also open to guests who are not staying on the estate, though reservations to dine here are needed.

Activities and surrounding

Naro, whose origins date back to the Sicanians (1300 B.C.), was one of the most important and richest cities of Sicily, with Greek-Roman influences. It stood out during the Vespro period and the wars of Fredrick Redbeard; here the kingdom of Bianca di Navarra was found, as well as the kingdom of Chiaramonte and, in 1645, during the height of political and cultural life, two universities were located here.

"Naro felicissima", a splendid city with 40 churches, is home to illustrious men, saints, and romantic legends. Across this land, since the XIV century, the family of counts, the Gaetani, have lived and prospered here; this family of very ancient origins has a single family tree with many branches and relations with the most prestigious families in Sicily, like the Angiò di Villabianca and the Tomasi di Lampedusa.

The beauty of these unspoiled places nurtures relaxation and calm, from city stress, rediscovering the lifestyle and habits of country living.

The sea is located 20 minutes from here, and can be reached with your own car or the estate’s shuttle. Guided tours for the Valley of Temples or other interesting sites. You can also take part in grape harvesting, fruit picking, and olive oil pressing. Guests may also enjoy long horseback rides, mountain biking, fishing in the lake, or even bird watching.
Also: bike rentals; air rifle shooting; darts; ping pong; cooking classes (at least 5 participants); library; reunion hall; Internet point; lake fishing; bird watching; estate products tasting (jams, vegetables, fruit, almonds, pistachios and sweets, oil, wine); local product tastings (honey, cheese...); tennis court (8 km away); soccer field (4 km away), which can also be reached by the shuttle service.

The province is a quite famous attraction site, thanks to its noteworthy archeological, historical, cultural, naturalistic, and folkloric heritage. This area is greatly enhanced from a social point of view, as can be seen by the cultural event Mandorlo in Fiore that takes place every year in February and unfolds in the Valley of Temples, and which has recently been associated with the Festival Internazionale del Folclore.
This town is also the birthplace of illustrious figures such as the philosopher Empedocles and the writer Luigi Pirandello.

Other suggested attractions: Scala dei Turchi (Realmonte), Sciacca, Selinunte, Eraclea, Macalube di Aragona, Enna, La via delle miniere (Caltanissetta), Piazza Armerina, Castello di Falconara (Licata).

Eh. It was just ok. We stayed for two nights in October. It was perfect swimming weather for us but too cold for Sicilians so we couldn't swim in the pool. We were expecting more farm associated activities. All we could do was walk around. There were no choices of food, whate... Read more

Excellent
This accommodation is located in the heart of nature, a very quiet and authentic place, well located in relation to the Valley of the Temples of Agrigento.
The welcome is warm and our hosts are very available, and adapt to your requests (olive oil tasting).
