In the early eighties we decide to move from the city to the country looking for an essential, satisfying and sustainable lifestyle.
It was very challenging to renovate and improve this country mansion built in 1700, plus making the soil fertile and productive thanks to lifelong friends and partners. We were among the first ones to experiment with organic farming in this county. In 2000 we took part in the European initiative of planting mediterranean trees, bushes and aromatic herbs in order to revitalise and preserve the Iblean landscape.
Right now the challenge is to build a business which is up to date but respects the history and personality of this place. New resources, humanity, diversity and creativity, come together within a complex yet precious context.
The reward is being able to celebrate together the occasion of meeting each other opening the doors to the world that passes by.
In a context made to meet and share, surrounded by nature, you can enjoy some good homemade food, locally sourced, occasionally listening to interesting music or taking part in themed events.
Over the last few years, many wwoofer volunteers came to Vinciucci, adding their stories and sensibility, plus their recipes and manual help, to a cauldron of knowledge that is ancient, connected to the land and organic farming, but at the same time is modern and cosmopolitan, connected to the globalized world.
Events and Workshop
Besides the ordinary B & B routine management, Il Casale Vinciucci takes care of organising several workshops, seminars, shows, concerts, cooperating with theatre directors, artists, musicians, social workers, therapists and spiritual researchers.
Here you will find a collection of thoughts, phrases, ideas of some of the guests who in recent years have stayed at the Casale Vinciucci.
Who better than they could describe the experience at our B & B.
