Casa Balata is a farm house, but it is also so much more.
The old structure was completely renovated respecting the shapes, sizes and materials originally used.
It is a facility offering our visitors a different experience, beyond time and space, a unique experience that aims at touching the soul.
An enchanted place, among olive trees, native plants and healing herbs, perfumes and colours, nature trails, earth, rocks and the sea, a place where the only sound is the wind blowing, where TVs are replaced by books, a place where still today, at night, it’s possible to admire an extraordinary starry sky, away from any form of light pollution, a place where you can appreciate the fusion between the beautiful and unspoiled Sicilian countryside with the Mediterranean sea.
Our philosophy, which is reflected in every detail of Casa Balata, is that of strictly respecting nature and the environment, and this can be been in the choices that we’ve made.
For this reason all our agricultural produce – cold pressed extravirgin olive oil, citrus fruits, fruits, vegetables, aromatic and herbal plants, are all ORGANIC and the energy needed for the facility is produced by our photovoltaic panels.
Also our bio-pool was designed to perfectly integrate with the surrounding environment and built with special materials that totally harmonize it from a landscape point of view.
