The buildings that house the rooms are surrounded by a garden consisting mainly of ancient olive trees and lemon, orange and mandarin trees, as well as other fruit and non-fruit trees, as well as various species of plants and aromatic herbs.
This garden is located within ancient terraced land (gazzane) built in stones to make it easier to cultivate and maintain the sloping land, but also remarkable are the flower beds made with local stone from the yellowish color typical of the Caltanissetta territory.
Walking in this natural environment allows the curious visitor to enjoy directly the colors, flavors and aromas of the Mediterranean garden.
