The Casmene agriturism is 4 km from Buccheri, and found at the centre of the holding within 45 hectares of seedings and olive groves including vast meadows and picturesque forests. In a similar scenery it is easy for our guests to come across wildlife at sunset: falcons, rabbits, foxes, partridges, woodcocks, coturnici. In this superb valley the river Anapo comes to life â€œUnder Mount Lauro, a mythological creature and a forest of sacred laurel to the history of the origins of Siracusaâ€. Here, in fact, we enter in the bowels of ancient Sicily between Siracusa, Ragusa, Catania, we are in the legendary historical context of the fabulous Casmene, third sub-colony of Siracusa of the ancient Greeks, a Mediterranean light to ancient civilization. In this land, where man appeared from the Ancient Bronze age (1800 AC), there began an archeological dig in collaboration with the Cultural Heritage of Siracusa and SiciliAntica, with suprising results. Here, at Casmene, where man and guests of history are sacred, Mother Earth wanted to praise our efforts with an immense gift: therapeutic natural mineral water springs enriching the grazing pastures for the animals and enhancing the quality of our products. Casmene is loved by three generations: the grandparents, Paolo and Maria, bought the livestock farm in 1981. Rossella and Raffaele completed the agriturism in 1996. Mariapaola, degree qualified in â€œDesign and management of tourism systems in the Mediterraneanâ€, in 2011 projected it into the future, a future full of study and innovation. We believed in a dream and the dream has not let us down. But our insatiable passion pushes us further and for the better. Ancient history certainly, great food of course, natural beauty too but not only these things, there is also soul and pathos. The joyous feelings that we have at the departure of satisfied guests continues to this day. Here you can find ancient history, modern comforts and ever lingering tastes. The rooms (doubles, twins, triples and quadruples) all with climate control and bathrooms, are comfortable and completely autonomous. There are 10 rooms with 30 beds. To stay at Casmene provides you with the opportunity to spend relaxing moments at our outdoor infinity pool (20 x 9 metres) placed in a fabulous location. Being so close to nature, you can enjoy our restaurant (seats 150), products typical of our area, as well as products that are strictly from our farm. At Casmene, the menus vary, following the seasons to ensure we can always offer the highest quality and freshness of the raw ingredients. Our products grow from the experience gained over the years thanks to the decades of work in close contact with the land and its fruits and from our passion for authentic flavours. Eating healthily but with exceptional flavor, with dishes that amaze the eyes and the palate. Our philosophy: to return to a way of healthy eating, excited to feel welcomed into an atmosphere like a civilization of an ancient village, to meet and simply to be.
