A dream to live in. The unforgettable moments need to be kept for saving precious memories. So Dimora delle Balze teaches the best skills in order to learn in a weekend the principal techniques of photography and other Arts. The Academies mean much more… Who appreciates the traditional Cuisine will experience Cooking and Pastries Classes.
The Dimora is composed of 11 rooms of different sizes, from 20 to 45 square metres, each with different colours and designs, specifically designed for them. Each room has its own concept and a story to tell. The names chosen for the rooms refer to Sicilian works and artists, from cinema to art, from poetry to opera. In this way, the property wanted to pay homage to the extraordinary performers who made the name of this wonderful region great all over the world.
As to the floors, handmade cementines from Morocco have been designed in different forms and Mediterranean colours, such as mid-blue grey and the shades of green.
Seven rooms are situated in the central court and each of them has a terrace, from which you can overlook the first court, and you have the possibility to interact with the other estate guests, as if you were in an ancient village. Inside the Dimora we find two special rooms: one is situated in the manger, while the other is set on the little tower from which you can see Viale dei Carrubi, the Valley and the swimming pool. In the manor house there are four rooms with original ceilings and elegant furniture, all of them with a beautiful view of the valley, while two of them have a private terrace, an intimate area with a view of the nearby wood.
Inside these scenographic residences you can breathe the atmosphere of the local workshops and of the manufacturer productions of the place, that in a blend of elegance and welcoming give a sense of belonging and family.
Through a preservative restoration characterised by a detailed research of unique objects, vintage and design elements, the fascination of the Mediterranean past is passed down. The estate extends to about 25 hectares, cultivable for the most part and 100% Bio certified. Inside it and in the many adjoining areas, ancient caves can be seen. In addition, the estate is situated between the extraordinary beauty of Noto and the ancient city of Siracusa.
It is the attention to details that makes this place so magical; this is possible thanks to the cooperation between the owner Elena Lops and the designers Draga Obradovicand Stefano Guidotti.
