Old rural farmhouse with a large plot of land


This old rural farmhouse with a large plot of land can be found just outside Testa dell’Acqua, a little village in the hills.

Description of the property

The property is all on one floor and has an area of about 240 sq.m. It is on a plot of land with an area of about 30.000 sq. m. Even though part of it is in ruins it has kept its charm of an old farmhouse from the last century. The several buildings that used to be used for everyday life can still be distinguished: the owner’s house with its bedrooms and kitchen, where there is still an old wood burning oven in masonry; the warehouses for the garden tools; the stables that sheltered the animals.  All of the buildings look out onto a courtyard that used to be an important part of the estate. Although the ceilings in wood and sicilian roof tiles require some essential restoration, they can be repaired.

In the vicinity

Testa dell’Acqua is a little village that got its name from a spring that provided water to the acqueduct in Noto before the earthquake in 1693.

The village has a bar, some grocers, a butcher, a restaurant-pizzeria, a post office and a police station. Testa dell’Acqua is a holiday area where many people spend the hot Sicilian summer months away from the heat of the city. Here you can also visit the church of Sant’Isidoro and the square with the same name, which is famous for its historic fountain where the women used to do their washing and animals used to drink.

The property is 87 km from Fontanarossa airport in Catania and 65 km from the airport in Comiso.
