The house draws its particular charm from the uniqueness of its architectural surroundings.
It is located inside an ancient baglio, a typical Sicilian rural courtyard enclosed with a large door, at the centre of which lies a mulberry tree.

The space

The house is on two floors and covers about 65 square meters. The entrance opens onto a large dining area with a nice kitchen, comfortable and organized. Also on the ground floor is the bedroom, spacious and bright, with two large windows overlooking a magnificent olive grove. The double bed (160 x 200) allows for a third bed or cot (both on request). Next to the bedroom is a bathroom with a spacious and elegant shower.

A stone staircase leads to the mezzanine where you find the living area, also usable as a second bedroom for 2/3 people. There is a sofa bed (140x 200) and enough space for an extra bed. This area leads to a lovely terrace (15 sq m) on the roofs of the baglio where you can have breakfast with the morning sun, sunbathe in privacy or enjoy the cool of the evening. The house overlooks the courtyard of the baglio and in the reserved space in front of it you can relax on a sun lounger or dine by candlelight.
The house is the result of a recent restoration using recycled materials such as ancient stones and railings, and the choice of handmade terracotta for the floors and chestnut beams for the ceilings, give it a particular charm. The house has a heating system that makes it comfortable even for a winter stay. Perfect for a couple, for a family of 3/4 persons, or for two couples.

Elena's Baggio is lovely - clean, tastefully decorated and a comfortable bed. The kitchen is well equipped, and the patios are lovely for sitting out on - the cats became regular visitors (I may have provided some cheese). It's located just outside balestrate and has ready access to a number of pleasant local places. Thank you for having us!

The apartment is very spacious and tastefully furnished. It is the perfect place to calm down and relax after a whole day of visiting this part of Sizily. The apartment is part of a traditional farmhouse with a very nice courtyard. For us this place had the perfect location to get to all the beautiful sites we wanted to visit very easily. Elena, although we haven't met her personally, was ever so charming and helpful over the phone. We can highly recommend this accommodation. Florian+Claudia May 2017

Me and my wife stayed for a week in Elena's place and enjoyed it very much! The house is surrounded by orange, lemon and olive trees - it is very beautiful and smells great (I didn't know before orange flowers have so nice smelling)! Apartment had everything we needed. It was warm inside, nice comfortable bed. No problems with water pressure and temperature, I could have a proper shower)) Internet wifi works fine. In the evening we were usually having our dinner sitting outside the house in the yard, chatting with our neighbors. We had a great time in Elena's house and would love to come again!
