The agriturismo

In the early nineteenth century the Masseria was princely farm estate and today it is an organic agricultural company and an enchanting farm stay, set in the countryside of Piana degli Albanesi at 700 metres above sea level. The whole building is recognised by the Local Council for Cultural Heritage for its high historic value.

The accommodation

Set in the countryside of Piana degli Albanesi at 700 metres above sea level, Masseria Rossella rises from the shadow of the mountain of the same name, in the beautiful “Scanzano” valley, in front of the Ficuzza wood and the Busambra Rock, where rare species of birds of prey nest. It owes its name to the special quality of the soil, which favours the growth of beautiful rose gardens and is thus known as the land of the roses.

The estate covers 40 hectares of centuries old and new olive groves, (which produce an excellent organic oil), orchards and vegetable gardens, aromas and flavours that form the basis of our home-made cooking. In this corner of paradise you will be pleasantly surprised by the unexpected countryside of woods, hills and valleys, lakes, luxuriant olive groves, immense fields of wheat, precious vineyards and top quality wine cellars. You will be enchanted by the light, bewitched by the colours and seduced by the intense flavours of a land untouched by concrete. A natural and unspoilt environment, proudly linked to its own agricultural traditions.

The buildings of the farm stay are the renovated “share cropper's” house, storerooms, granary, tack room, kitchens and barn. The bedrooms, the living rooms and the lounges are elegantly decorated with antique and hand-crafted furniture, valuable prints and materials. The bedrooms and reception rooms are all heated, comfortable and practical. As we are in the countryside, we want you to feel the nature and be in harmony with it.
The bedrooms have direct and independent access onto the lawn of the central courtyard, which is furnished with garden furniture and parasols. There are six double rooms, one quadruple room and two suites, all with a private bathroom, There is also a large dining room with an ancient stone arch, a study library, three large lounges, two of which have a fireplace and one with a TV, a private chapel, and finally the granary, now a beautiful conference room.

The large swimming pool, which looks out onto the valley is surrounded by a lawn and protected by age old trees; the terrace also offers a splendid and unforgettable view of the valley.

Activities and surrounding

In this farm holiday you can enjoy the sun, relax in a hammock in the wood, go for a invigorating walk around the property or have a refreshing swim in the pool. You can enjoy the colours of the sunset with a book in one hand and a drink in the other, or go trekking on the CAI tracks (Club Alpino Italiano) some of which pass through the estate.

If you like sports, the farm holiday offers a 3 day paragliding course, single jumps or a jump in tandem, if you are a beginner.
You can take our mountain bikes, go on a guided trek through the Ficuzza wood and even walk to the top of the Busambra Rock (1600m).
You can also do a Sicilian cookery course with the chef. It offers a tour of the cultural wealth of the surrounding area, wine tasting tours and visits to the the lake of Piana degli Albanesi, a WWF oasis. If you haven't got a car, Masseria Rossella offers a transfer service to and from the airport. You won't have time to do everything.
Finally, you can buy theproducts form the Masseria: extra virgin olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, eggplant and artichokes in oil, jam, seasoned cheeses and olives, wine, home-made pasta and soap made from olive oil.

Just under 10 km to the west, clinging to the rock of the same name, is the ancient Greek city of Jato, whose theatre, agora, streets and houses are still perfectly visible. A few kilometres to the south are the Arab thermal baths of Cefalà Diana, to the north the famous Monreale and Palermo and the town of Piana degli Albanesi with its beautiful lake is only 10km away.
Finally, if you are a cinema lover you will be pleased to know that a short distance from the farm you will find unforgettable places in which scenes from films such as The Leopard, Cinema Paradiso and Salvatore Giuliana were filmed.

    08/10/2017

    I spent a really relaxing and wonderful weekend, an oasis of peace and well-being. Great to meditate. Only thing to see I think is breakfast and lunch, can improve. But the chopping boards are great. Finally, I would like to thank Maurizio and Mr. Antonio who followed me from start to finish, extraordinary people. I'll be back soon!
