The Baglio (ancient Arabic word, indicating a cluster of fortified dwellings) is immersed in the gentle reliefs close to the nature reserve of the Valle del Belice, which from Menfi degrades to the Mar d'Africa not far away. From Baglio, the eye sweeps over the alternation of vineyards and olive groves, between paths with edges covered with brambles and prickly pears. In the ancient cellar of the seventeenth-century Baglio is the restaurant that still houses the old millstone used in the past for the grape beating. The dining room overlooks the ancient courtyard: the ceiling is sometimes, the sober furniture and the typically Mediterranean cuisine. There are two salons of significant size, one of which can accommodate 300 seats.
The rooms are twelve, furnished in respect of local traditions and two suites with panoramic terraces and views either over the pool or on the slope that gently slopes down to the sea. The swimming pool (8x16 meters) is surrounded by shaved lawns and leafy olive trees. There is also a sauna, a tennis court and other recreational areas. The entire Baglio has been renovated with taste and respect for nature, typical of the southern Sicilian districts, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards.
The property has a broadband internet connection, wi-fi.
Accessories: cellar equipped for vinification, bar, outdoor kitchen, 900 square meters of loggias, private chapel, swimming pool (8x16 meters)
The economic activities of the structure are articulated between the receptivity of agritouristic hotel type, agricultural productions and the production of quality wines. The cellar has a processing capacity of 7,500 hl and is equipped with the most advanced systems available today. The vineyards will reach a productive maturity within two years of about 3,000 quintals of valuable grapes. The 49 hectares of land are fully irrigated by their own water-lifting facilities coming from the Belice irrigation Consortium and two existing wells on the property.
The Baglio is situated in strategic location near the archaeological, monumental and beaches of the south of the Sicily; like the Temple’s Valley of Agrigento, yhe archaeological Park of Selinunte and Eraclea Minoa, the bay of Mozia’s island, with the Roman museum discovered by the Whitaker’s family, the Zingaro's Marine Reserve, the Erice’s medieval castle and venus roman temple, Palermo with Norman-Arab monuments, and not far the splendid Egadi’s Islands.
