Light, typical stone walls and a sea of carob trees are the main elements of Le Chiuse di Guadagna, a place to learn and appreciate the narrative and knowledge of southeastern Sicily.
"Le Chiuse” are the main feature of the area, resulting from the farming tradition of delimiting land through the use of drywalls, in order to differentiate land usage and crops.
In the shadow of 4 carob trees, in a panoramic position overlooking the sea, there is a large swimming pool with Jacuzzi .
THE RESTORATION PROJECT. Le Chiuse di Guadagna was a farm of modest size, used for the cultivation of fields and the storage of products. The rooms of the farm were the centers where agricultural products were processed. Part of the building was used as a residence for employees and as an occasional residence for the owners; this was typical of the farms in the province of Ragusa.
The renovations of the farmhouse started in 2010 thanks to EU funding. During the restoration process, it was imperative to keep the essence of the house intact: we used materials and manufactured products which are typical of our area, with a keen eye for creative reuse, modernity and, above all, eco-sustainability.
