We are in an area of Sicily which includes wonderful beaches, some of which repeatedly awarded with the blue flag as the cleanest and sustainable beaches in Sicily.
The villa is located in Borgo Bonsignore, a small village built in the early XX century for agricultural purposes.
These borghi (literally: small villages), nowadays still visible in Sicily, had a similar architectural design: the main square with the church, the school, the post office, the police station and a building used both as market and common hall; and, all around, the small houses of the farmers.Ribera is worldwide renowned for its oranges and strawberry (fragoline di Ribera)
