We are an Italian-French couple and have decided to live here in Sicily because we love this land. Eva , a Sicilian young lady, Julien, a French young man , fascinated by Mount Etna, it has been “love at first sight”.
Our project, Giardino Arancio, comes from our common passion for trips and trekking, our will to transmit our love for this land to our guests.
Eva is a professional excursion guide who worked with numerous national and international tour operators.
We want to extend our passion by making Giardino Arancio, not only a true place of quietness and rest, but also the best starting point to discover Sicily in an original way, by helping you organizing your tours, your hiking and your Sicilian experiences. We will help you to plan your holidays, by creating all-inclusive packs, and tailor-made itineraries that may match your desires and requests, or simply by giving you our advices and suggestions.
Our aim is to propose you an authentic jpurney, far from mass tourism in huge all-inclusive hotels. For that, we work with a local network of small organizations.
Our philosophy is to promote the « slow tourism » format : we consider travelling as an opportunity to slow down and take time to acquire the Sicilian local culture while discovering its traditions. This is also why we develop an ecoresponsible project with renewable and clean energy.
And, of course, you may also enjoy the pleasure of being at home, with a home restaurant dinner or a drink in the gardens.
We did choose this house because it radiates peace and tranquility, it is strategically located to discover Sicily and it really matches our dreams!
