“I love waiting rooms, I love absent minded trains, missing their connections, only to wander aimlessly in the plains: the abandoned tolls, where a shutter, that someone didn’t close, always bangs…”
[Cere perse, Gesualdo Bufalino]
Welcome to La Via del Carretto, a charming place for a relaxing stay or for discovering the known and lesser known routes. Situated in Capri Leone, a small hillside village in northeastern Sicily just a few kilometers from the sea, nestled in the green Nebrodi mountains with a picturesque view of Alicudi, Filicudi and Salina (Aeolian Islands).
The building that houses the B&B was once a collection of old tower houses huddled together, built between the end of the 1800s and the beginning of the 1900s. We have carefully restored these towers to preserve as much as possible of the original structure , merely connecting and strengthening the already massive stone walls using, where possible, materials that could maintain the simplicity of the place and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere .
Through recycling and creative reuse of the materials present in the old building we have carefully and tastefully furnished the bedrooms while delicious breakfasts and a homely and friendly atmosphere make our B & B the ideal place for those wishing to escape the crowded tourist areas while at the same time exploring the surrounding area and getting to know a “piece” of Sicily, because like Gesualdo Bufalino wrote“… There are many sicilies, we will never stop counting them”.
