The agriturismo Timpa del Sole is established on the slopes of mount Alveria, only a few kilometres from the historic town of Noto, and at about 300 metres above sea level. Situated on pleasantly rocky and varied terrain, the property covers 12 hectares and is overlooked by the ‘timpa del sole’, a mysterious and seductive high plain from which elegant hawks can be seen taking off. The property is surronded by centuries old ‘carrubi’ trees and olive groves as well as a variety of fruit trees, including succulent mulberries and delicious wild figs.
