Set inside Madonie Regional Park, Il Vecchio Frantoio is a Sicilian manor house with several mills, which was built in the 1600s. It produces olive oil, meat and salami, which is served in the restaurant. Rooms have a rustic yet elegant design with wood-beamed ceilings and terracotta floors. Every room features a TV, fridge and private bathroom. They offer views of the garden and surrounding mountains. A continental breakfast is served each morning, while the restaurant serves Sicilian specialties with gluten-free and vegetarian options on offer. There is also a comfortable lounge with a cozy fireplace. Il Vecchio Frantoio is just outside the town of Scillato and offers lots of bird-watching opportunities. You are surrounded by nature and just a few km away you can find the Abies Nebrodendis fir trees, of which there are only 24 left in the world. Free bikes and free parking are available, and the seaside is just 20 minutes' drive away. The Scillato exit of the A19 is 3.7 mi from the property and Palermo is reachable by car in less than 1 hour.

Company info

the experience made over the years, allows me to give hospitality that meets all the demands of our guests.

Property info

The houses "Firrione" (Il Vecchio Frantoio) is unique, because in addition to having a very ancient history and evident for its majesty, it is also immersed inside the Madonie park, then in the countryside, but easily accessible for its proximity, only 4 km from the Scillato highway junction, on Palermo Catania. This allows the visitor to have a point of reference for turning Sicily easily!

Neighborhood info

The structure is located in high hills, therefore in a very favorable position so as not to suffer from the summer heat and even in the autumn months we have very mild temperatures. The marvelous medieval villages of Collesano, Polizzi Generosa, and Petralia soprana and sottana, have cultural treasures preserved in the various churches or museums that are truly interesting. The Madonie Park can easily be visited with more or less demanding walks but a very interesting expression of biodiversity.
