Rural style accomodation in Sicily
Pippa’s Paddock offers rural style accommodation in Sicily. It is situated at an altitude of 2500 feet above sea level in the Madonie mountains, in one of the most fertile valleys of the region – the Gurfa valley, named after the prehistoric caves found there. At this altitude there are, sometimes, some spectacular views to be had of the mountain tops sticking up through the clouds below.
The British family run place is a restored farmhouse complex with the four grain barns becoming the guests living quarters. Each guest room has an en-suite bathroom. The area surrounding the guest rooms has been enhanced by a large terrace which overlooks the picturesque valley with its ever changing seasonal colours. The terrace is ideal for BBQs and social events and is regularly used for these.
Being also a horse-riding centre, the buildings are surrounded by fields where the horses graze. The stables and school are situated on the premises.
