The farmhouse Masseria La Chiusa is made up of an ancient building dating back to the second half of the fifteenth century in which there have been obtained six rooms and four apartments, of an eighteenth-century Bourbon cellar now used as a restaurant and reception hall, of a catholic church still consecrated of the same century of construction of the Masseria, of a dependance in which there have been obtained four other apartments, of a swimming pool and a large outdoor area with a play area for children.
Just 20 km from the city of Palermo, Agriturismo Masseria La Chiusa is the new reality of Sicilian farm holiday. The large restaurant hall is the historical ‘Sala delle Botti’ (the Barrel Hall), which is embellished by the ancient trusses and original columns. The chapel is placed inside the ‘Baglio’ which was once the heart of the village social life. The chapel has recently been scrupulously restored. The work has carefully uncovered the original frescos, tangible signs of the evolution in the figurative arts.
