Discover the most beautiful places of the area
We organize customized tours with qualified guides and with the collaboration of the Naturalistic association “i Nebrodi” that will lead you to the goal of psycho-physical well-being, through an emotional and relational path.
Slow tourism, away from the crowd, let yourself be taken away using your 5 senses: smell, hearing, sight, touch and taste, to discover places, visions and yourself.
Atelier sul mare
A journey within a journey. Let’s start at the psycho-physical equilibrium. We look outwards for the medicine to heal within, peering asking, questioning.
In a rugged and stretching nature the largest widespread art park in Europe: “Fiumara d’Arte.” Among the works of contemporary art in the valley territory dell’Halesa meet the Hotel-Museum Atelier sul Mare, in the fishing village of Castel di Tusa. The patron Antonio Presti who writes: “I am here to amaze myself … with the wonder one begins and also ends […] because along the path of amazement I escape from a world of division and enter into a world of unity, where one thing, a creature says to the other “this is you”.
So the journey does not end on arrival at this place, but as soon as we enter the lobby, the journey begins again. This time we begin to travel inward: to the inside of the art rooms, towards the inside of ourselves.
Neither statues nor paintings. Each room has a contemporary work of art conceived as a journey, a life lesson, an emotion, a soul gasp. The opening of the soul and the mind opens the road to recovery. So we learn that it is useless to look outside ourselves for that in which we can find within ourselves.
The “reconnection” and the rediscovery of ourselves, wellbeing as a goal.
Nature becomes our therapist. With this knowledge, in 1993 the Nebrodi Regional Park was established, the largest area where nature is protected in Sicily (86000 ha).
With all of its humility, with all its richness, the green splendor, all of its arrays of color, where the blue of the sky and the brown of the earth meet, the park reminds us of our true essence. It says “you are living.”
We climb along the mountain chain of the Nebrodi, making it to the protected area. We meet animals raised in the wild like the black pig and horses. We can observe the mythical griffin and eagles in flight. We will walk among oaks and hollies.
We will pass through ancient villages and eat traditional dishes, so … let’s not miss anything. None of the five senses will be disappointed.
According to the style and consistency of slow tourism and relational tourism, we thought of this experience to comfort you. Together, side by side, we’ll go a few kilometers from Capo d’Orlando, on a hill almost to the sea, on which stands a thousand-year-old town, quiet, whose origins are lost in myths. It is the tiny town of Piraino, which was Arab, Byzantine, Catholic.
Walking into small groups of people in the narrow streets, the atmosphere that you experience is that of lost time that seems to stand still. It is easy here to stimulate the five senses and to reconnect with yourself and with the nature that graces the village.
Stretta di Longi
River trekking, more immersed in nature than this would be difficult. In swimsuit and rubber sea boots we will move towards the gorge that divides the two mountain ranges, walking in crystal clear water and on the pebbles of a small stream. The water depth varies from area to area and may reach a high level in a few points, almost always reaching the calves. We will climb a few rocks and will move some branches until we reach a small picturesque waterfall that flows into a small lake; and this is the “gorge”, because at this point, the two mountains are divided by the stream that come together less than three meters apart. Medium difficulty, it is recommended a good willingness to adaptation.
Walking in small groups of down the narrow streets, the atmosphere that you live is that of lost time that seems to stand still. It is easy to stimulate the five senses and to reconnect with yourself and with nature that welcomes the village.
The magic of a unique land is found concentrated in the ancient Tindari. A series of positive emotions are spread as we enter through the alleys to natural background, including acanthus plants and fragrant flowers: the same plants adorning the Corinthian capitals. The Romans were masters in nurturing the health of body and mind. They knew that positive emotions promote health and healing.
Nevertheless, today we are dedicated to the same purpose. A few hours to spend in the spa and then off to visit the ancient spa, or the baths of the archaeological site of Tindari: here the landscape, which house the ancient remains, pampers that mind.
