San Noto Antica Residenza di Caccia is 400 metres above sea level on the north coast of Sicily between Brolo and Ficarra. Here you will have wonderful views overlooking the lush hillsides and the sea that typically characterize the Nebrodi mountain landscape.
Stefania and her family and their calm dog live and work together at Agriturismo San Noto and welcome you proudly to their homely accommodation. Together they produce olive oil and farm their land which includes orchards of orange trees and a number of other different types of fruit trees. They also make their own soap based on the natural ingredients from the farm.

San Noto has a very nice garden and a new small swimming pool in the garden in front of the house. When you want to swim in the sea, it's nice to know that the beach is not too far away. A trip of 5km will take you to the sandy shores at Brolo, and 7km to Gliaca di Piraino. Both are very nice beaches and are also small towns with shops and other amenities. The nearest restaurant is around 700 metres from here and there are several more within 2km.

It was definitely the best place, we have stayed in our 10 days on Sicily. Stefania is an amazing hostess, and the place and area was beautiful and interesting. We can heartily recommend visiting Agriturismo San Noto.
San Noto was what we needed to recharge our batteries. At San Noto, Stefania reigns - and she does it in the best way possible. Here you are served as a king and queen by a more than helpful and attentive hostess, however, without being pushy. We enjoyed getting up and take the 10 stops out to a breakfast with the most delicious home made cakes, bread, marmalades, omelets, fruit and delicious olive oil and yoghurt. Every day - one (or more) new cakes. A guest had birthday - so there was birthday cake. Sitting in the good weather with seeds in your eyes, getting served and with the breathtaking view. That WE won't get tired of. We already wanna go back, when writing this - with a big smile. Going up and picking the delicious oranges and lemons directly from the tree and then eating them 2 min later! Uh it is good. uuh it is authentic. uuh it is vacation. The pool is fine, it is small, but fine at getting the heat washed off you. It works fine. I thought, personally, that it was nice that you could swim 6 lanes (30 m) without drowning. Stefania and San Noto leaves its mark. And we REALLY want to be back.
