Sicilian Country House set in an orange grove close
to the pristine beaches of the Platani nature Reserve









La Siciliana is located at the heart of Sicily’s ‘orange country’, close to the town of Ribera. The area is not only famous for producing fabulous oranges, but also for the beautiful nature reserve at the mouth of the river Platani, created in 1984 to protect its exquisite beaches, which remain among the most beautiful (and clean) in Sicily. With the Greek temples of Agrigento and Selinunte, the beaches of Torre Salsa and Scala dei Turchi, and the fascinating towns of Sciacca and Caltabellotta all in easy driving distance, La Siciliana is the perfect base for exploring the southwest of Sicily.
