Casette di Calzata
An Eden with a Sea View
From first light, the luxurious Sicilian sun bathes your terrace in a warm glow. The gentle aroma of fresh coffee mingles with the natural scents of the vast Mediterranean garden in which you have awoken.
In front of you, stone’s throw away, a huge expanse of Mediterranean Sea glitters invitingly. At your back, to the south, the mountains of the Madonie nature reserve rise up invitingly. Today, however, both can wait – it’s the first morning of your dream holiday and you only want one thing: to relax and regenerate in this hillside paradise.
The Calzata Estate

Sprawling lazily across 14 full acres of pasture and grove, it is home to over a thousand olive trees, countless species of topical and Mediterranean plants and palms. Among the grass and and countless flowering wild herbs of the meadows, our loyal and good-natured gardener, Isotta the donkey, feels particularly at home.
