Area hills
We are less than 20 km from the Castello di Lombardia situated in Enna which rises to 1000 meters, in the small paradise of Contrada Gerace, characterized by its own micro mild and dry climate protected from the cold winds from the north Monte Gerace which offers a spectacular view of the valley surrounded by hills planted with almond trees, olive trees and pastures and overflown by flocks that form several black figures in the sky. The area is popular with mountain bikers, horse walkers, trekking lovers but especially by those who want to recharge and relax with the opportunity to visit unique places with a half-day trip, such as the Unesco site of the Roman Villa Casale near Piazza Armerina, or spend a day discovering the Etna, the volcano symbol of Sicily and the highest in Europe.

We loved staying at Il Mandorleto. Our wood cabin Oleander was so cosy and fully equipped. Maurizio and his family are great hosts they made us feel really welcome. We spent the new year's eve in the most relaxing and cosy way with great food and great people. Our daughter had even the privilage of getting a horseriding lesson by Marco. We surely made some good memories which will make us come back in future. Thank you all!

Luogo ideale per chi vuole rilassarsi specialmente in bassa stagione e stare immersi nella natura. ideale a chi piace cavalcare e fare passeggiate. Noi siamo tornati volentieri in questo luogo e ci ritorneremo perché ci sentiamo a casa sia per l'ospitalità e la gentilezza di tutta la famiglia, perché abbiamo notato l amore e la passione che mettono per ogni cosa e sopratutto per i cavalli. ho da dire anche che finora e l unica struttura che abbiamo trovato dove il mio cane e stato veramente libero di muoversi liberamente, nel dovuto rispetto di tutti, che non ho trovato da nessuna parte malgrado la scritta animali ammessi. Grazie.

Il Mandorleto vanta numerosi pregi tra cui la posizione in campagna ma a pochi chilometri dai luoghi turistici più interessanti della zona. Il cibo é genuino e se si é ospiti della struttura in estate si noteranno gelsi e fichi colmi di frutta a portata di mano! La cosa cmq più gradevole é il rapporto che si instaura con i gestori, persone di cortesia e disponibilità rare.

The answer from the host:
Ringraziamo i nostri gentili ospiti amanti della natura che hanno soggiornato da noi con i loro amici cani e che hanno apprezzato la nostra cortesia, disponibilità e i piatti tipici locali e stagionali del nostro ristorante. Mettiamo tutta la nostra passione nella gestione del nostro agriturismo ed nella promozione del nostro territorio che ha la fortuna di trovarsi nel cuore della Sicilia.

Maurizio e la sua splendida famiglia ci hanno accolto con gentilezza e grande disponibilità, facendoci sentire sin da subito a nostro agio. Luogo ideale per rilassarsi e vivere pienamente la natura. Bellissima esperienza a cavallo. Ottima degustazione di marmellate e mandorle, e cene sempre squisite. Grazie di tutto. Saremo presto, nuovamente, vostri ospiti!
stayed from 07/22/2017 to 07/30/2017
The answer from the host:
Ci fa molto piacere sapere di rivedervi prossimamente, magari a settembre col nuovo raccolto mandorle.
